Jockey Wheels have been a problem for caravaners 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.
Note: Al-ko auto retract jockey fits all 3″ or 75mm 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 as 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.
