F.A.Q'S about the Trail-A-Mate MkII

  • 1.

    Can Trail-A-Mate MkII be fitted to my caravan?

    Yes, you can fit a Trail-A-Mate MkII to your caravan and it can be used as a jockey stand. We have developed our own 60mm clamp to facilitate this, however this jack does not come with a wheel, only a flat base plate.
  • 2.

    Can the brackets for the jacking point be fitted to my caravan or trailer?

    Yes, almost all caravans built over recent years have a cross-member at the rear of the axles strong enough to accommodate the brackets, which must be welded on. However, over the last couple of years, the majority of caravan manufacturers have fitted the brackets which create the jacking points for Trail-A-Mate as standard equipment.
  • 3.

    If I purchase a Trail-A-Mate MkII with the optional 60mm clamp so I can use it as a jockey stand, do I need to buy a separate jack?

    No, the Trail-A-Mate MkII is designed to be used as both a jockey stand and a jack, minimizing the need to carry unnecessary equipment on holidays with you.
  • 4.

    My caravan has an ATM of 3,500kg fully loaded, can I still use the Trail-A-Mate MkII?

    Yes, Trail-A-Mate has a Working Load Limit of 1,500kg. When you are jacking the caravan using a Trail-A-Mate, you are not lifting the entire weight of the caravan, you are lifting approximately 1/3 or less of the vehicle weight at any of the jacking points.
  • 5.

    If I get a flat tyre, will I still have to climb underneath the caravan to jack it up?

    No, Trail-A-Mate is designed so that it is operated from a standing position, using a minimum amount of effort, preventing you from having to climb underneath your van, making it not only easier, but a much safer option.
  • 6.

    How high will my Trail-A-Mate MkII lift fully extended?

    The Trail-A-Mate has the capacity with the base plate fitted, to lift from as low as 6 inches (150mm) above the ground to a height of 20 inches (500mm) in one straight lift.
  • 7.

    I have limited mechanical knowledge, what happens if something goes wrong with my Trail-A-Mate?

    Trail-A-Mate has been designed so that even a person with a very limited knowledge of hydraulics could repair the unit by following some very basic instructions,
