The original hydraulic caravan and trailer jack that converts to a jockey wheel.

Trail-A-Mate is our flagship product. It is a Hydraulic jockey wheel that converts in to a jack when you need it. You simply swap the wheel for a solid base plate. The key features of the Trail-A-Mate are as follows:

  • Capable - WLL 1,000kg / ATM 2,900kg
  • Versatile - Easily converts from a jockey wheel to a jack
  • Easy - Being hydraulic it takes very little effort to operate
  • Safe - Fully complies with the Australian mandatory safety standards (2693:2007)

It has many applications and uses as you will see below such as Caravanning, Horse Floats, Trailers, Food Vans (the list goes on). It is even used by the Australia Defence Force - four Trail-A-Mates are used on each corner of a vehicle that carries a telescope so it can be safely leveled on un-even ground. It is an extremely versatile product.

In addition to its versatility we have spent many years perfecting and refining the Trail-A-Mate to be as safe and easy to use as possible. Leading up to 2007 we were working with the Australian Government to assist them in introducing a Mandatory Safety Standard for Caravan and Trailer Jacks.

Yes, Trail-A-Mate has been designed specifically to fit caravans, trailers and horse floats into the existing jockey wheel clamp.

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.

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

Yes, Trail-A-Mate will lift a six metre caravan high enough so you change both wheels on one side of the caravan at once should you have to. However, it is recommended should you have to change both wheels together, the caravan should be supported using appropriate vehicle support stands.

Yes, Trail-A-Mate has a Working Load Limit of 1000kg. When you are jacking the caravan using the 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 each of the jacking points. If your trailer has an ATM greater than 2,900kg you will need the Trail-A-Mate MkII.

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.

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

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,
