Well while back in Minnesota I picked up a center jack at the factory. I'd been wanting a center jack but the tube on all the ones I had seen hung down to low for a 13 footer. We just sit too low.
It was actually at the Nebraska gathering that I noticed Floyds center jack. Then while at the factory wandering around I observed that all the new Scamps had center jacks. The factory is actually putting 2" couplers on all the trailers which have the 3 holes necessary for mounting a center jack. Then they found jacks with short tubes.
I didn't change the coupler on my Scamp
. It still has the 1 7/8" coupler that the factory used to put on, which only has the front mounting hole. I did what Floyd did and had a cross bar welded to the tongue with 2 appropriate holes for the rear of the jack plate. I just love the new jack. I hated the side folding jack which always had a slight twist to the frame. In addition, I had to be careful when shoving the Scamp
around on the side jack. This center jack is very secure, the welder made sure to do a great job for me.
I'll add a couple of pictures tomorrow. Jack up and jack down.
