12 ton bottle jack and the 4 x 6's that go under my stabilizers get me the height I need. You could in a pinch use a stack of boards under 1 tire, but with axle movement it can be a challenge.
Make sure you have a lug wrench too.

I have a Trailer Aid and find it very convenient. I just used it while lubing the wheel bearings. It is light weight and is easy to store.

Thanks for the input. I just picked up a 12 ton bottle jack. Figured it would be best for other uses around the house. Also, when I want to lube my axles I won't have to hook up and pull the TT up on the Trailer Aid, although it is probably much handier for a flat out on the road. (And much less weight).

That's why I pay extra for towing services...they change tires too.
I'll be in the back drinking a beer waiting for them to get done...hahahaha.


With the Trailer Aid device...wouldn't it be just as simple to put the yellow 'Lego's' together in pyramid fashion (that most of us already have) and drive on them the same way?

My tire changing device sort of looks like a credit card with the words "Auto Club" stenciled across the front.

Works great, too.

I've only seen picture of this being used on TT's with axles relatively close together. My Whitehawk axles are pretty far apart. Seems like that wide spacing would make a difference in getting the other wheel off the ground. Anyone used this on a TT with similar wide axle spacing like that on the Whitehawks?

How many beers do you get to drink while you are waiting for the towing services to show up??
