Wheels for Rear Overhang

I don't know what you call them but I see some Class Cs with two wheels mounted beneath the rear bumper or frame to help with the tail dragging of a Class C. Do any of you guys use them and what is your opinion of them? Are there different kinds and which do you consider best if so? Just give me the pros and cons or any advice you can on these things. I know zero about them. Thanks Much!!

We've had different types on previous longer coaches in the past but I'm confident that the welded hitch guard on the Jayco Seneca 35GS is sufficient and I don't plan to add one.
I've heard it scrape on a couple of occasions but I was already moving very slow so I continued without a concern, and just visually check it once in awhile to ensure it's still there and hasn't suffered any damage.

One thing to consider is in most cases that adding something else dropped below the hitch is only going to create a greater possibility of it getting "hung up" on something.

I put some heavy duty "Grizzly" Casters on the back of the TT and it works perfect.
The Jay Feather with the Torflex Axles makes the TT low and it doesn't take much for the rear to scrape. The original skids what were on it where wore down.
