Erde lightweight jockey wheels

Erde lightweight jockey wheel

All Erde trailers can be equipped with a jockey wheel. Installing a jockey wheel on your trailer will mean that you will no longer have to bend down and lift the coupling as far to get it onto the tow ball. A jockey wheel will also make moving an un-hitched trailer by hand much easier, and it will keep your trailer level so it can be loaded while un-hitched.

Erde supply two types of jockey wheel. This type is a standard wheel that is designed to support the weight of any model of Erde trailer with a straight draw bar (i.e. the ‘leisure’ range). This type of jockey wheel mounts to the drawbar by a light weight bracket that fastens around the drawbar with large U-shaped bolts.

Good features of a jockey wheel include:

  • Makes your trailer more manageable when moving it by hand
  • You no longer have to bend down and lift the coupling as far to hitch it
  • Keeps your trailer horizontal when in storage

Bad features of a jockey wheel include:

  • They can be expensive, especially heavy duty models
  • Some people forget about jockey wheels and don’t wind them in before driving off, wearing out an expensive wheel in minuets
