Hello from south Louisiana!

Hello to all.

if all goes well we will be purchasing a 1988 21' Jayco travel trailer. It's promised to be in good shape as it has been under cover for most of it's life. It's been 8 years since it has last been moved. My problem is it is 250 miles away. If I were certain of it's condition I would bring along a set of tires but I would still have to get them on the rims. Does anyone no the lug pattern? I don't have much to go on as far as a model number. It does have double bunks in the rear section. Any help will be appreciated!!

Please excuse my manners. I jumped into this forum without even introducing myself. My name is Aaron Champagne and I was born and raised in south Louisiana. I'm married with three children. I am going to look at a 1988 double bunk trailer. If it is in as good condition as the po says it is we will buy it. I currently own a 1973 Airstream Safari. It doesn't sleep as many as the jayco. The extra racks will come in handy.

Here's a diagram on determining bolt patterns. Then owner should be able to read tire size for you.
Go to the bottom of this page

Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.
Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Even
On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)
Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Hope this helps.
