Caravan RV Camping actually care about you, the customer. Australian Based Very fast to dispatch your orders Plus they have good competitive prices. I give them a big thumbs up, and I will be happy to deal with them again.
I am so glad I had my Mate handy, it made changing the tire so easy.
It took me approx 1 1/2 hours all up, removing the flat tire, driving to the nearest tire center, getting a new tire fitted to the rim, returning to my trailer, and fitting it.
For those of you who have tried to use a standard car jack for your trailer or caravan, I feel your pain.
P.S. I am extremely impressed with the Trail-A-Mate. Its heavy duty steel construction gives you the confidence that it is built to last, and I thoroughly recommend it.
