Casita jack relocation

Hello all. If someone has done the jack relocation on a Casita moving it back can you tell me what the measurement is from center of the ball hitch to the front of the jack? I'm trying to use a Yakima Longarm for a canoe and pull my Casita. Unfortunately the Yakima hits the jack. Thanks..

I installed a Jack-E-Up conversion kit on my nose wheel jack. My problem was not being able to drop the tailgate on my truck when I was hooked up because it would hit the jack. Now, once I have the trailer on the hitch ball, I just screw it down to take the weight off the jack and release it from the mount with a 1/3rd twist. I stow it in the bed of the truck until I get to where I want to park the trailer. Just reinstall it and run it up to get the trailer off the ball.

(And here's the write-up from the Little House Customs site on this unit.)

JACK-E-UP
NEW IMPROVED CASITA VERSION AVAILABLE ONLY FROM LHC
This amazing new jack aid is a really cool solution to those of you with late model tow vehicles. Yep, the tail gate hits the tongue jack and that's a problem. You could use a longer stinger as long as you have 30% of your towing capacity to give up, but for the rest of us, this solves the problem. After you spend 5 minutes installing this, you simply hitch up, raise your jack a couple of turns off the ground, turn your jack 1/3 of a turn by hand and pull it out! Stow it in the back of your truck. (remember you can lay your tail gate down now!)

Or stow it in the now available Jack-E-Hand. The Hand attaches to your coupler under the Jack-E-Up and gives you a convenient place to stow your jack. It includes a locking pin as well and as an added bonus; the Hand doubles as a flag pole holder for many brands of telescoping flag poles. Inside diameter of the hand is 2 1/16.

We've tested this product and really like the safety and ease of use. We've added a bottom stabilizer bracket that bolts to the existing bracket to take much of the play out of your factory jack. This improvement really makes it stable.

For a better understanding of how it works, visit jack-e-up.com and watch the three minute video.

This is NOT a solution for those with electric jacks. For those of you with the Barker or other brands of electric jack, see perfectcasita.com for their Jack Relocation Bracket.

Jack-E-UP $61.95 Add to Cart
Jack-E-Hand $41.95 Add to Cart
BUY THE PAIR AND SAVE! $99.95 Add to Cart

And here's a few pics of my trailer with it installed.

That's a great idea unfortunately I would have to take off my Yakima rack every time I wanted to put the jack In. here's a picture of my hitch would a relocation plate even work with this hitch configuration. It has those angle pieces that go down not sure if it would work or does the bracket fit in their?

Does anyone other than orbital machine works carry this part? I ordered one bit they may possibly be 3 months out.
