Attach these sturdy steel wheels to the rear of your RV to help prevent tail dragging when backing up. Protect your undercarriage from unnecessary damage.

by:

Nice solid units, Good delivery. Had to make a replica top set to attach to a 37' travel trailer without welding. We have steep gravel driveway that has been damaging the rear jacks, Good clearance now.




by:

If it wasn't for wheels I would have had to remove and replace my driveway to change the grade. At $10,000 for a new driveway this was a much better choice and it didn't only solve the problem at home, anywhere there is a steep grade the back of the fifth wheel doesn't drag and damage the camper.




by:

The concept is great, the skid wheel supporting frame is great, the wheel itself is cast and not near strong enough, I feel If it had more mass between the bearing portion and the wheel surface it would hold up better to the weight it is supposed to protect.
The wheels have broke several times on my 37 foot rv, but so far they are the only ones that I could find.


Comments
Thank you for your feedback. I checked and this part # UF48-979013 is the only option that we currently offer for RVs that are 34ft and longer. Keep in mind that none of the skid wheels that we offer are recommended for use on a diesel pusher motorhome due to the extreme amount of rear-end weight.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 11/09/2021
At this Point the wheels have not broken, Even if they do it will still give some protection of the back end of the RV.

by:

Part seemed like it would be fine. Have a 38ft 5th wheel and a semi steep driveway where the rear was digging in by inches when backing in, so I just needed a small lift. Was all ready to weld these on until I realized that for my specific trailer the placement of them wouldn’t give me enough clearance, so I stopped and returned (took off the bumper instead to fix my problem, lol). They were heavy duty and would have done the job for sure, though.

For etrailers part, they took it back no questions asked less the shipping I had to pay to return. Would order here again. No issues




by:

Easy to install, and work as advertised. Very sturdy construction as these are the 'big boys', rated for Class A and large trailers over 34'. We have a 44' Cyclone Toyhauler, and these are a MUST! Highly recommend for anyone needing to prevent their RV undercarriage from dragging when going through low spots in the road.


Comments
Still SUPERB!! One of my best upgrades so far. Worth every penny. A
Jake T - 08/04/2017


by:

Worked perfect for my 40ft. Park Model. I had them welded on just in front of the scissor jacks. Works perfect and prevents the ass from dragging going up my steep driveway!!




by:

Within 2 weeks of installing these skid wheels they literally crumbled and disintegrated. To say the least I am very disappointed and feel that they were a big waste of money. I would not recommend this item to anyone.




by:

Great customer service! I reached out to them when I realized that these Skid wheels have doubled in price everywhere to see if there would be a price break for larger quantity which they did and then I found them even cheaper on a different site so I asked if they would be willing to beat that price, which they did. As purchasing agent, that is great in my book.




by:

My customer is very happy with the product. We built a custom bumper with these wheels for his 5th wheel trailer to protect the auto-leveler system. Work like a charm!




by:

Great product




by:

This product is all it was advertised as. I have a 16000lb 5th wheel RV. There is approximately 17' of trailer behind the real tandems. The rear bumper has about 22" ground clearance. The skid wheels have about 14" ground clearance. The cast steel with the polyurethane coating is a good combination. These skid wheels has save the RV from dragging. I would recommend these skid wheels.

second pair , Love them will save the rear of camper from thousands in damage from dragging ,they work in dirt also , campers are getting longer , must have

all welded on and ready for dips and valleys, and hill




by:

Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels- 6" Dia were welded on our 36ft RV in 2016. Our driveway has very steep grade transition. The wheels have worked wonderfully at home and on the road . We had to stiffen up the RV frame before the wheels were installed to the frame. Most of the time I try to slowly move through questionable grades changes so to allow the wheels to swivel to the intended support position. I’ve seen other similar wheels that were damaged from sudden weight and directional changes.




by:

Great product and fast shipping!




by:

I installed these on a 27 foot Motorhome with about 12 feet of overhang behind the rear wheels. They have contacted the ground quite a few times, sometimes unexpected but have held up very well. I would recommend this kit for anyone having trouble dragging the back of there RV on the ground.


Comments
I have had the skid wheels on my motor home about a year now, and they have worked flawlessly. There is a lot of overhang past the rear wheels, so they contact the ground a lot in and out of driveways. After one year they are still like new. A great product for protecting the undercarriage of your RV.
Darrell - 07/07/2019


by:

I purchased these wheels for the tail end of my 34 foot travel trailer. I took my trailer to Ketchikan, Alaska via ferry. The ramps getting on and off of the ferry were very steep and the wheels kept the back of the trailer from dragging and causing damage.
These wheels did exactly what was advertised and more. I would recommend the wheels to anybody who drives an RV up or down a steep incline. They will prevent any damage from scraping the back of the RV. I will install a set of these wheels on any RV that I own in the future.




by:

Had ultra fab on my 5th wheel for 10 years or so, and pulled up my steep driveway many times. They lasted through this punishment the whole time.

Bought a motor home and put same wheels on it, but over hang prevented me from getting up our very steep driveway. They have prevented damage through dips and other driveways, but it I had dropped the wheels for my driveway, the drive wheels would have been in the air.

Love them anyway. Plan to get another 5th wheel, and will install on it.




by:

I attached these skid wheels to the rear of my 42 foot fifth wheel trailer because my driveway slopes to the street. they support the weight of the trailer and prevent the spare tire and the rear of the trailer from dragging. They work very well.




by:

After purchasing a 42' fifth wheel travel trailer I was afraid that it would not safely make it across a low water crossing entering my property. I investigated and then purchased these skid wheels. Order was received quickly and as advertised. I installed using the bolts provided and have had very satisfactory results.




by:

Have been using etrailer for a few years, when I do chat everyone is knowledgeable and very well informed, so I tow my 37’ toy trailer to the desert and after unknowingly dipping the back of my toy trailer accessing a camp spot, didn’t even realize the spare tire caught first then slid back and took out the electric stabilizers at the same time, oh joy, called etrailer and had new stabilizers here quite quickly, a perfect fit. So just got some heavy duty swivel casters (etrailer), got them yesterday and will install them this weekend.




by:

Installed the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels on our 38' travel trailer. The first set we ordered were defective - the grease zerts were stripped. I contacted trailer and they apologized and immediately sent me a new set. We very pleased with the wheels they are performing exactly as we hoped.
I would recommend etrailer and the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels.




by:

I have a 34 foot class A that bottoms out at the bottom of my driveway. I used the alternative method by using u bolts to attach to the frame. It took me two days to find u bolts large enough to fit. Backing out of the driveway the wheels worked as advertised. When I drove up the driveway, the right worked, but the left rolled on the frame and both the plate and wheel bent. The left has to be replaced and then must be welded instead of ubolts. Not sure why that is even an alternative for a class A.




by:

Overall, the product is performing as expected. But, during install, I ran into a big problem. The zerk fittings, which appear to be brass, did not hold up when I tried to apply grease. Three out of four of the fittings snapped off. I had to remove the remainder of the fittings, and then install new fittings. I suggest someone in quality control take a closer look.

Would not have been so bad doing the change out on the work bench, but laying on you back on the concrete it 90 degree weather is a pain




by:

Very simple and easy to weld bracket in place. Lock nuts and bolts correct,except needed flat washers.
Two bolts were missing, UPS fault, bad handling. Might need stronger box, because of weight of product. Everything else excellent.

  • Will Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels, # UF48-979013, Work on a 2013 Jayco Seismic 3914
    The Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels, # UF48-979013, are designed to be placed at the rear of an RV (or trailer) but I suppose you could put them anywhere on the RV or trailer where it may get too close to the ground. They are designed to bolt the frame using the included hardware. We have many skid wheel options that might work for you. I have included a link to the available options for you to view.

  • Can Swivel Skid Wheels part # UF48-979013 Attach to Subframe of 2015 Jayco Model Jay Flight 23MB
    Ultra Fab states that welding the Swivel Skid Wheels part # UF48-979013 directly to the frame is the best route, but it leaves the door open for other areas as well. A subframe that is properly reinforced like yours would be fine and would be a great place to install them.

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for 38 Foot 5th Wheel Trailer
    For your 5th wheel camper, I recommend the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979013. These skid wheels install to the frame of the camper rather than the trailer hitch. When the wheels are attached to the hitch, they can cause clearance problems and the hitch is the component that takes much of the force of the skid wheel. With skid wheels that are mounted to the frame you are less likely to damage the hitch. I have attached a review video of these skid wheels for you.

    For your Dynaquest 360XL motorhome, I recommend using the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class A RVs, Item # UF48-979013. These sturdy steel wheels have a 6 inch diameter and attach to the rear of your RV to help prevent the tail from dragging. These skid wheels are intended for motorhomes longer than 34-feet.

  • Swiveling Skid Wheel Recommendation for 2018 Jayco North Point
    The only solution we offer that covers most of what you said you need is the Ultra Fab Skid Wheels part # UF48-979013. This is the only swiveling solution that's going to work on an RV that's longer than 34 feet like your 2018 Jayco North Point. The brackets of these need to get welded to the frame though and then from there the wheel assemblies get bolted to them.

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for 32 Foot Kodiak Travel Trailer 283BHSL
    When picking out skid wheels you want base it on the length of the trailer so thank you for listing the length of yours as being 32 feet. Since most are designed for either below 30 feet in length or for longer than 34 feet your best option is to err on the side of caution and go with the set designed for longer trailers like the Ultra Fab kit part # UF48-979013 that you referenced which is for trailers over 34 feet in length.

  • Recommended Skid Wheels for 38 Foot Fifth Wheel Toy Hauler
    The skid wheels I highly recommend for your 38 foot fifth wheel toy hauler are the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class A RVs 34' and Longer - 6" Diameter # UF48-979013 because these are frame-mounted skid wheels that will be able to withstand the force that occurs when you are backing into your driveway. As you can see by the cut out of the review I added, we have had customers use these on even larger fifth wheel trailers to great effect. I've also added a link to a video review of these...

    Due to the length of your Heartland Bighorn 3670RL which is 39 feet in length you would want to go with the Over 34 Feet Skid Wheels part # UF48-979013 which you would actually want to attach to the frame of the trailer.

I contacted the manufacturer and because it is a skid wheel and not holding any static weight, they haven't tested for that capacity because people may try to use it on other applications. These wheels are extremely strong and are made for Class A RVs 34 feet long or more, so they are intended to take a beating and support a lot of weight, but only the glancing...

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for 38 Foot Long Fifth Wheel Trailer
    For RV's longer than 34 feet we have the skid wheels part # UF48-979013 which would work great on your 38 foot RV. These don't have a weight capacity but based on the length of your RV and the intended design of these wheels these would work well.

  • Skid Wheels for Use on 54th Wheel RV
    We do offer skid wheels in both hitch-mount and frame-mount types but not for bumper mounting. Typically an RV bumper will not have the strength to handle the force from a skid wheel taking a good strong bump. On the linked page you can see all available skid wheels which include both bolt-on and weld-on varieties.

  • Recommended Skid Wheels For 2015 Passport Grand Touring Travel Trailer 35 Feet Long
    Since you have back jack stabilizers on your 2015 Passport Grand Touring travel trailer, I recommend using the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class A RVs 34' and Longer - 6" Diameter - Qty 2 # UF48-979013. I recommend welding the skid wheel brackets as close to those stabilizers as you can so that they can still function, but so you can also protect them best on those up hills. These are very sturdy wheels to protect your undercarriage and accessories from unnecessary damage, however you will...

  • Recommended Skid Wheels For 34 Foot 5th Wheel RV Trailer
    For your 34 foot 5th wheel trailer, I recommend the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class A RVs 34' and Longer - 6" Diameter - Qty 2 # UF48-979013. Based on the length of your RV, the skid wheels will have a plate that needs to be welded to the frame before the wheels are bolted on. These will swivel and divert the impact from your frame and prevent tail dragging.

  • Recommended Install Method for the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels
    Actually the preferred mounting method for installing the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels part # UF48-979013 is to have them welded on. See the attached install link. You can use U-bolts to install these skid wheels as well though. I spoke with my contact at Ultra-Fab and you will want to use at least a grade 5 U-bolt, which can be found at most local hardware stores, when mounting the skid wheels. Since the mounting holes that you will want to use measure 5-1/4" apart, he also recommends using...

  • Distance From Mounting Surface Down to Bottom of Wheel of Ultra Fab Skid Wheel UF48-979013
    From the mounting surface of the trailer the # UF48-979013 would attach to down to the bottom of the wheel measures 6.77 inches. You would need to compare that measurement to your setup to determine if that would help keep your trailer from dragging adequately.

  • Can Ultra Fab Skid Wheels Install on a 2014 Keystone Cougar 333 MKS with Bike Rack
    Do you have the bike rack setup that basically attaches to the frame rails of your 2014 Keystone Cougar and extends the bumper out and a bike rack then sits between it and the rear of the trailer? That's what I was able to find pictures of online when I searched your trailer. I don't see any reason the Ultra Fab Wheels # UF48-979013 couldn't also fit the frame before the bike rack though. You would just need to install them on the frame side of the RV before the bike rack.

These do not have a weight capacity listed because they are used to help keep the back of your trailer from dragging when facing steep inclines. They are not meant to sustain heavy weights for an extended period of time. These skid wheels include a plate that is welded to the trailer frame and the hardware is included to bolt the wheels...

  • Recommended Skid Wheel for Class A 32ft 2014 Coachmen Mirada Motorhome
    I can help you figure out which skid wheels are right for your trailer. The way to pick out skid wheels is based off of the length of the trailer. For Class A motorhomes longer than 30 feet, Ultra-Fab highly recommends using the 6 inch skid wheels, part # UF48-979013. The reason is that the longer motorhomes usually have a longer overhang at the rear. I have linked the above recommended product to this page for your viewing and purchasing convenience.
