Jack-E-Up jack

A few months ago I contacted Kent Madison of Jack-E-Up to order one of his jacks to replace my side-wind jack on my Fiber Stream. The problem was that when I modified the installation to put the spare tire above the frame, I realized that I had to remove the side-wind jack every time I needed the spare. A Jack-E-Up would be the ideal solution.


I was apparently the first Canadian customer for this product, and we had to work out the shipping. Kent was very easy to work with, and the jack arrived promptly.

It was very, very easy to install, and works flawlessly. To install, I just put the trailer coupler on my trailer dolly, blocked the trailer wheels and went to work. Less than 15 minutes total.

I am impressed with an excellent product, well-built, and a customer experience that far exceeds what I normally receive. Check out his product!

An added benefit is that missing the jack makes the trailer a less likely target for thieves.

I also purchased the Jack E Up and had it installed. Unfortunately, the results were not as good as yours. I put a wheel on my jack to move it into and out of the garage. With the wheel in place, the jack wanted to tilt, making it very unstable. Even with the foot on, using the Jack E UP was very unstable and wobbly. I decided to remove and return it. It is better for me to live with the inconvenience of not being able to open the back door, than to have the nose of the trailer crash down, or bend the post of the jack.

The product itself appears to be well made, but the safe application on my trailer did not seem to be what the normal jack provides. Just my experience, yours may vary.

I think cpaharley put one of these on his 21' Escape.

The tongue jack on my Scamp swivels and stores parallel to the tongue. Nothing ever hangs down.

You may want to consider this. Works as advertised and we love it.

hmmm... wondering whether the Jack-E up system can be used with the Ulitmate Jack. I like the quick release for taking the jack down...but removing it while underway like the Jack E up does is appealing as well. ... anyone tried it?

As to whether anyone has used Jack-E-Up with the Ultimate Jack I can't say. There is certainly no reason why you couldn't, since Jack-E-Up has a version to fit a standard A-frame jack, of which the Ultimate Jack is a modified version.

I don't see enough advantage to justify the doubled cost though.

On second thought, looking at one of the pictures of the Little Joe setup on that trip, it doesn't appear too severe. Never the less, I don't think I could have achieved level without blocks under the jack.

I like the swing-away (swivel) jacks. Harbor Freight sells a couple of them that bolt onto the frame, no welding or drilling necessary.

I have, and use, the Jack-E-Up and have not found any problem with "landing gear" wobble. Curious if you installed the bottom plate with the hole in it for the jack to insert through in addition to the top twist-out fixture? Mine is solid as a rock, and I push it all around the driveway with no wobbling at all.
