European 'jacks' are known (in English) as 'jockey wheels' and have two means of adjustment:

- undoing the clamp on the side allows the whole tube to be slid up and down (where Paul's red handle means he doesn't have to grab the dirty tube);

- turning the handle on the top is done only for fine adjustment.

So for example, unhitching the trailer is usually done by undoing the clamp, allowing the jockey wheel to drop to the ground, tightening the clamp and then winding the handle as the hitch is unlocked.



Forgetting to fully tighten the side clamp (or it rattling undone) and the jockey wheel dropping while driving isn't unknown! Superior jockey wheels have a ribbed shaft so they don't just rely on friction to hold them in place.



And remember that since all European trailers have those old-fashioned rod/cable-operated mechanical brakes, they all have a handbrake also.

Sorta like this idea: The Ultimate Jack - A-Frame Trailer Jack at its finest!
Which is also great to get the jack out of the way on low hitch trailers.

The red handle helps me to move the trailer. My trailer is very light and at the trailer park I arrange it by myself or with a help of my son.
Thank you very much to all of you for appreciating my work. I also read your forum and I have learned a lot already.
You have a mine of knowledge here and a lot of very interesting ideas. I have found already some, that I would like to implement in my trailer.
We send our warm regards to all of you!

Thanks for that confirmation, Paul. It certainly would be handy to have that handle on a light trailer.

Amazing rebuild! Great job!
We have the same trailer and are in the process of stripping it down to rebuild. I was very excited to see all your pictures! I hope ours turns our half as nice as yours!

Additionally I installed also the doors for storage under the bed. It will help me to use the space more efficient.
