Jockey wheels for boat trailers, box trailers & caravans
Be it a boat trailer, caravan, camper trailer or regular box trailer one of the items they all have in common is a jockey wheel. Jockey wheels come in all shapes and sizes depending on the type of trailer, weight of the trailer and where that trailer is used. An off road camper trailer jockey wheel will be different to a 6x4 general use trailer. Some have a pneumatic wheel, some have a solid wheel, some swivel 90 degrees and store on a trailer, others come off completely.
Why do you need a jockey wheel?
Jockey wheels have a number of functions.
- Stop the trailer hitch sitting on the ground if not connected to a vehicle
- Allow a trailer to be 'jockeyed' into position when not connected to a vehicle
- Hitching and unhitching from a vehicle especially for heavy or loaded trailers
- Caravan jockey wheels as well as camper trailer assist in levelling the internal floor on rough ground.
When you select a jockey wheel for your trailer you need to ensure it will be suitable for the trailer and its use. Details like the maximum weight of the trailer (Use tow ball weight), type of wheel will differ depending on trailer weight, whether its used in a farm paddock or on a concrete workshop floor. Environment, does the trailer live out in the elements, tucked up in a shed or down near the beach.
