Lightbulb Jack and Stability - New Products?

Hello

I'm replacing my standard Fulton trailer tongue jack on my 1975 Trillium. I'm wondering if there is a new jack and/or front stability product I should be considering. Thank you

Are you replacing just the jack, or the coupler as well? The reason I ask, is that most current couplers have a hole for a jack to bolt into. But the older style jacks that fold up have more ground clearance. Also, you might want to consider if you want a wheel, or not.

Have a look at Bulldog products. Very good quality. At the other end of the scale is Lippert or LCI.

I'm not familiar with the tongue of a Trillium so my opinion may be worthless, but I like the Ultimate Jack that I installed on our Casita. OP may also be looking for advice on some type of stabilizer jacks for the front corners. I use the screw type on our Uhaul and Casita, but there are other options.

Lippert may be close to the "other end of the scale," but I suspect the Harbor Freight jacks comprise the true "other end." However, I've used them and they work... at least, they worked for as long as I needed them...

Harbour Freight and Princess Auto are at the far other end of the scale!
