    I purchased one of these from Amazon (Had to spend my gift card) and now I'd like to know if anybody has or intends to use one like it. I tried placing it on the axle yesterday and it has to go on the inside of the breaks. I am not a big fellow and I had difficulty getting my head and shoulders under the camper to place the jack. If the tire was flat and the trailer lower by 4 inches, I think it would be impossible. Anyone have any experience?

    I think it would sink into the ground, or even hot blacktop.
    I don't know that I'd trust it long enough to change a tire.
    A cheap floor jack is about $50, and much more versatile.

    I carry a small floor jack from HF and a 12" x 12" piece of plywood but I have not had to use it but it is in the tool box on the truck if needed. I had a flat years ago and there were 5 of us men , I loosened the lug nuts and the other four lifted the unit wile I installed the new tire, I don't think that they could hold up the TT tho, even if they were there. :)

    If the tire is flat, put some blocking (leveling boards) down and pull the trailer onto them. Then use your Easy Lift jack.

    Good idea, thanks.
