Practical Sailor Gets Liftin and Rollin with Trailer Jacks
Fulton and Dutton-Lainson get top picks in our performance test of seven trailer jacks with stow-away wheels.
Anyone whos ever owned a trailer sailer knows that one of the most frustrating aspects or trailering a boat can be getting the coupler to meet the trailer hitch. One trailer accessory that can make this effort easier is the trailer jack. Our favorite is the stow-away trailer jack with castering wheel. We recently tested seven: the Road Warrior Mighty Wheel and Big Wheel from SeaSense; the 6800 Dual Wheel and the Swivel Series (6850 and 6851) from Dutton Lainson, and the Swing-away XP15L and dual wheel XPD15L from Fulton. We found jacks with independent wheels like the Dutton-Lainson 6851 and those with two wheels to be the best trailer jacks.
