    Jack? Leesure Lite owners

    What kind of jack are you using to raise the trailer in case of a flat tire? I'm thinking maybe a scissor type jack out of a car from a junkyard.

    Don't know about the arrangement of jackstands on your trailer, but on my Aspen, I lift the tongue all the way up and drop the 2 front stands all the way down, then push down on the tongue to lift the back end, (while my wife lifts the back, of course). Then she drops the two back jackstands all the way. Leaves both tires well off the ground.

    I keep looking at the ones that you just stick under an axle and drive forward to lift the wheel. Not as much weight as a regular jack. I've found them on E-Bay here but they're kind of expensive.

    If you are actually wanting a jack, here is a nice lightweight one. Small in size.

    You can use jacks on trailer to change the tire.

    A log, tree limb, or a rock on the side of the road. If none of those are available, open the trailer and pull out my table or a chair and wedge it under there. Coleman chair is good for 350#. It's not like you are dead lifting the trailer, levering it up on one side.

    I bought one of these and the axle height has to be fairly tall to just get it under to start to roll up on it then someone has to hold oit while another person rolls the whole rig forward , wife wasn't to keen on laying down and holding it and sure couldn't drive the bike to move forward. Was a bust as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm glad you said that, I was just looking at them again. I've got a 3D printer and was thinking of making one sized to fit the RAH.
