Hope this helps!

After reading some reviews, it looks like I'll be looking at another brand, like a Barker power tongue jack."

Thanks for the great information...

You`ll be happy with a Barker. A bit more money then some of the others, but made in USA.

A friend of mine with a trailer like mine got a 2500lb version and had to take it back and exchange for the 3500lb version. Just wasn't big enough to suit him. Never had one so don't know why a 3500lb version would be better than a 2500lb version.

I know my OFF-ROAD POPUP has the front deck on it so I would probably need a 3500lbs version jack. Its neat watching the guys walk around with the handheld control setting them up...

Hey Roy.... I think you need the extra "OOMPH!"...... to be able to lift both the TT and the TV up high enough to get the sway bars on.
