Al-ko Auto Retract Jockey Wheel 8″
Jockey Wheels have been a problem for caravanners and boaters for many years. Believe me, I have tried nearly every jockey wheel.
Like you, I put up with blood, sweat and abuse until I found this little beauty. It was a delight to try the Al-ko auto retract jockey wheel.
Finally, an auto retracts jockey wheel that works. However, there is a problem with the mounting holes as they do not fit 4″ or larger chassis rails.
Solution: We decided u-bolts did not work effectively.
I decided to drag out the battery drill and replace the u-bolts with 4 x hex head galvanised self-tapping screws.
After 6 months and a lot of use, this Al-ko jockey wheel performed better than expected.
Of all the jockey wheels on the market and I have many to choose from, this Al-ko auto retract is the best for me.
Get one today, you will not be disappointed.
The Al-ko auto retract jockey wheel comes standard with the mounting plate, however, the holes need work as they do not line up with standard chassis rails.
The auto-retract to suit 4″ chassis rails is available to retail customers only.
