Power Tongue Jack X17Z?

We are looking for Christmas ideas for my parents new camper and are looking at a power tongue jack. We are new to the RV scene so we are clueless.

Any ideas?

I highly recommend the Barker VIP series tongue jack. Mine has been flawless for 2 years now. Only issue I've had, I had a ladder fall over and bust the motor cover. I called Barker, they sent me a new one out free of charge - they even paid the shipping. Top notch company and I highly recommend it.

I have the Barker as well and I love it. One of my favorite add-ons - especially if you have spring bars.

Be sure and get on big enough to lift not only the trailer but also partly raise the back of the truck. It makes putting the spring bars on a LOT easier.

I also added the Barker VIP and it's the best mod I've done yet. Makes raising and lowering the trailer an absolute breeze!

Never had a Barker, but hear they are good ones. I put an Atwood on my last TT, before getting the 5er, and it always worked great. I also currently have an Atwood on my car hauling trailer, and it too has given me no trouble for about 11 years.

A patio mat is another great accessory. I got mine on sale at camping world. I wish I'd got one sooner.
