For a double axle trailer, I have never used a jack to change a tire. I put leveling blocks under the good tire (high enough to lift the other tire and provide clearance to put the spare on), and either back onto them or pull onto them. Then I change the spare, pull off the blocks and head on my way.
Even with a loaded trailer, the additional weight on the one axle for the short duration of time it will take to change the spare will not be an issue.
Finally, I keep a Cross style lug wrench in the front storage of the trailer.

I carry a 4-Ton bottle jack in the back of the truck and have plenty of 2X6 and 2X8 blocks in a milk crate I normally use for under the stabilizers when I have an unlevel campsite. I used it once to change a tire and it worked just fine. Got mine at Harbor Freight.
