Trail-A-Mate Hydraulic Jockey Wheel And Jack


Emergency repairs, tyre changing, and even hitching your caravan to (or detaching it from) your car, are part and parcel of any road trip. With the right equipment, you can reduce at least some of the associated hassle. 

This innovative product works as a hydraulic jockey wheel which can transform into a solid base jack when required. The 2-in-1 unit is capable of supporting a total weight of 1000kg and is compatible with most standard-height and off-road caravans. Packaging multiple functions into one easy-to-use mechanical device, the Trail-A-Mate kit essentially consists of a hydraulic jack on a shaft, which can be fitted to either a jockey wheel base or a lifting clamp base, depending on the function you want the unit to serve.

A base plate and jacking brackets are provided with the kit, along with a convenient instructions manual that serves as a guide on assembling and disassembling its various configurations. When not in use as a jack, the trailer mate can be refitted with the jockey wheel and attached to the jockey wheel clamp of your caravan’s A-frame. The Trail A Mate has a minimum height of 145mm, which can be extended to a maximum of 780mm by means of its release valve and handle. Spare parts are easily available to replace any of the trailer mate components.

The Trail-A-Mate Hydraulic Jockey Wheel And Jack comes with a one year warranty.

Paul's Tips

  • This jack should be used on level and firm ground where possible.
  • It's recommended that the wheels of the caravan be chocked.
  • No person should remain in a caravan supported by a jack.
  • The caravan should be attached to your towing vehicle.
  • No person should place any portion of their body under a caravan supported by the jack only.
  • If you have to work underneath, use support stands as well as your jack. It is not uncommon to be changing tyres or inspecting the undercarriage on the side of roads where conditions will most likely be less than perfect. Unstable, soft or slight gradients can cause your jack to slip or sink - You don't want to be underneath without extra support stands in any case.

The Trail-A-Mate hydraulic Jockey Wheel and Jack fulfills the promises made in the advertising. Delivery was fast and economical, fitting was easy and the video suggesting modification to undercarriage of van to use as a jack was very useful. Just need to test out more while travelling next month.

I was delighted to receive my Trail-a Mate kit exactly as described within a couple of days of ordering on-line from caravanrvcamping. The product has satisfied my highest expectations and makes a breeze of setting up and pulling down. I have had no need to use the lifting capability of the unit but am comforted by the knowledge that it is there in need. Thanks Caravanrvcamping. Count on me as a return customer.

Trail-A-Mate is a Winner!

By: on 3 April 2019

I own a full off road van , great product, unfortunately my van has high ground clearance and the jack needs to be approx. 150mm longer , I need to carry a couple of 75mm wood chocks to make it high enough to use , a longer option unit would be better still a great product

Trail a mate jack

By: on 15 August 2017

This is my second trail a mate jack. I fit the bottom plate to it and replace the jockey wheel because large vans today cannot be pushed around by hand. There is no need to remove the jack during towing. However, you need to drill a 4 mm hole in the base and attach a bungee cord from the plate to the top of the jack to ensure the jack wont sag down during travel. Having a trail a mate jack instead of a jockey wheel. has the following advantages. Easier to raise and lower the tow coupling. Can be dropped lower to level a van on uneven ground. The jack does not need to be removed for travel. You can buy on ebay a cable kit and jack cover that allows to jack to be secured to the caravan. You guys should stock this kit also.
