    I'm getting ready to take my 28' enclosed trailer on it's first long distance run and was wondering what most of you carry along with you.

    I'm planning on taking my 2 1/2 ton floor jack and a 6 ton bottle jack and was thinking about getting something like this http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EQT-01/ anybody have any experience with these?

    They work great! and come in handy for other uses.
    The best policy is new tires

    I bought the trailer used but it is a 2011 model and the tires only have one season on them. I just want to be prepared.

    I made my own out of an old piece of 4x4. I only ever had to use it once but it was a whole lot easier than a jack. Takes up less room, too.

    I have one and used it once. You have to be careful you don't run over it while getting the wheel up on it.

    But let me tell ya, that's the way to go.

    I had a blow out on a box truck I was driving and the road service guy used a couple of blocks of wood and did the same thing. Quicker and easyr than a jack. I lost a tire on my open trailer on the way to Atlanta for a BOPC show and used a chunk of 4x4 in the same way.
