What jockey wheel do I need for my trailer?
The jockey wheel is a vital piece of trailer equipment for helping to move a trailer or caravan into place for hitching to a vehicle. A jockey wheel will also keep the trailer A-frame off the ground to avoid damaging the trailer, road or driveway surfaces. Anaconda stocks impressive ARK jockey wheels that have been specifically designed for tough Australian conditions. Here are a few top quality products on offer.

What are some other jockey wheel considerations?
You may have a jockey wheel that comes standard with your caravan or trailer. However, if you want to change a jockey wheel you can, and it is not a difficult job. The shafts of jockey wheels can differ in height, and the jockey wheel tyre may be solid rubber or pneumatic. Here are some considerations before making your jockey wheel choice.
- Many jockey wheel shafts can be moved up or down as required. This standard or fixed jockey wheel will suit the majority of domestic and leisure applications.
- Swivel bracket jockey wheels are very easy to use. Instead of removing it from the trailer when it is not required, simply pull the release handle and the jockey wheel will rotate into travelling position.
- A flat-footed jockey stand is important if you need to stabilise a caravan in a fixed location, and for uncoupling on uneven terrain.
- Auto-retract jockey wheels can be activated by winding a handle. The winding mechanism automatically retracts the jockey wheel into travelling position.
