33bhts bike rack stabilizers

Just bought our Jay Flight 33bhts a few weeks ago. Love this trailer, but noticed that with the factory installed bike rack/cargo tray, that the rear stabilizer jacks left hardly any clearance. So, I moved the stab jacks to a more suitable location in front of the bike rack frame. Here are a couple of pics.

Jessie,
I have the same set up as you and I have bottomed out on those stabalizers several times. Does moving them seem to change the stability? This mod is on my list of things to do.

Didn't seem to change anything. And if it did, it's such a negligible amount that you can't even notice it. Takes the rack from hanging 8-3/4" to 4-3/4". That's a HUGE difference!

Thumbs up

Thanks for the tip and the pics, Jessie. Just had the rack added to my Eagle, and noticed how much it decreased the clearance. I may have to ad this to my list of mods, too.
