Got a question about this item. I notice that some come with that Rubber piece on top. This usually adds $12 to the cost of a bare one. Does a person NEED the one WITH the rubber piece or would the bare one work? The rubber piece adds one more inch of lift BTW. I have noticed that Wallyworld sells them for $47.05 with the rubber piece. I don't think Etrailer .com sells them. I would also add a couple of jack stands to my inventory and a Road Emergency Kit....flares and such.


Good questions, I don't know. I got the black one on my boat trailer and tried it out when I got it and it's very easy to use.

Moto forgot this and could be one of the most important. A Portable surge guard. That way if there is ever a power surge or electrical issue at a campsite, it doesn't fry everything on your trailer.

Happy Camping!

Get a small rubbermaid tote and stock it with things that may be need at the last minute. Imodium, Tampons, Antacid tabs, small sewing kit, Q-tips,
Extra batteries, a disposable camera, band aids, and add other thing as time goes on.

Totes are great. I’ve got three. One for all my sewer stuff. One for my small table top grill and accessories. One for all my outside man stuff: few tools, hammer, tent stakes, ant killer, small level, disposable gloves, small tarp, bungee cords, rope, work gloves, and lotsa other small stuff.

Keeps stuff organized and handy.

Get another trailer to haul all this stuff in. But on another note, speaking of water pressure regulators, and electrical surge protectors....if you have an RV with these items, which one/variety do you use?

So far so good. Really just need my fire poker, and some ice trays.

Thanks again.

My experience ..... Went on a bird hunt with a bunch of friends to Three Rivers for many years. Pulling trailers like Motto has. We returned to our vehicles one fine evening after a nice Tejano meal and the one dude that didn't have a lock on his hitch. Gone. Cost him an arse load to get home. Just saying. FWIW. The one time we ever had a problem there.
