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.

These wheels are super heavy duty. I have a 43 foot 5th wheel and have installed them on my trailer hitch cross bars. Once I bought the u-bolts separately they installed very easily. I followed the instructions for the proper hitch installation to be safe. I did receive one wheel with a zerk fitting falling out due to stripped threads. E-Trailer immediately sent a replacement wheel and expedited delivery to get me on the road. The poly urethane wheels roll very smoothly. I haven't towed the rig yet but my driveway is steep and I'll be putting them to the test soon.



by:

This product was as described and has proven to work well for protecting the back of our fifth wheel camper. We ended up welding an additional piece to the frame for optimal position and fit on our camper. My only suggestion would be for etrailer to repackage the item in additional padding and extra box because it arrived with the box torn and many pieces missing. etrailer had excellent customer service in providing the missing parts.



by:

Bought for our 36ft travel trailer. We had skids rollers added to the rear in order yo back it up our driveway way. Ones that were originally installed were purchased through our camper garage and busted. These bought through etrailer are heavy duty and made so much better.



by:

We bought these for our camper in 2018 and we broke one and needed to reorder. They are exactly we needed because of the incline of our driveway and length of camper.



by:

I think skid wheels are going to work w ell.



by:

The wheels did well. The frame would not hold the weight. I had a welder weld vertical supports on the frame..all is well.



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:

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.

Still SUPERB!! One of my best upgrades so far. Worth every penny. A



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:

Bolted them to the frame behind the jacks. Fairly easy. Just took my time drilling the holes and getting them lined up. Seems to be really heavy duty and durable.



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:

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:

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.

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.

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:

They did not last at all. The cast metal around the wheel blew up in pieces



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:

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:

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.

Shipper lost part of the order and the company replaced items very quickly.

They were easy to install and they solved my tail dragging problem. I would definitely purchase again if I bought a new 5th wheel.

They are doing the job keeping from dragging the tailend. Installed them on 43’ fifth wheel



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.

Darrell

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.



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:

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:

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

  • Skid Wheels for 2013 Palazzo RV with Reese Trailer Hitch
    Is there room before or after the hitch installed on the frame? As long as the wheels will extend past the bottom of the hitch these would work fine as skid wheels. From the mounting surface of the trailer the # UF48-979013 would attach to down to the bottom of the wheel measures 6.77 inches.

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for 34 Foot RV That Bolt On
    For an RV 1 inch away from being 34 feet I would recommend the frame mount skid wheels for 34 foot RVs part # UF48-979013. This will work well with your steep driveway. These are designed to have the plated welded to the frame and then the assembly bolted on like you mentioned wanting to do as well.

  • Do the Ultra-Fab that the Skid Wheels for Class A RVs UF48-979013 have a Weight Capacity
    We have learned from Ultra-Fab that the Skid Wheels for Class A RVs 34' and Longer - 6" Diameter - Qty 2 # UF48-979013 does not have a weight capacity rating. Since they are skid wheels and not designed to hold weight for extended periods the manufacturer does not test for or provide a weight capacity rating.

    For RV's longer than 34 feet we have the skid wheels part # UF48-979013 which would work great on your 38 foot RV.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Skid Wheels For 40-Ft Long Fifth Wheel Trailer
    That is quite a bit of weight at the back of your fifth wheel trailer. I recommend part # UF48-979013 skid wheels as they would be the best option for you. 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

To install them you will first need to have the brackets welded to your RV and then you bolt the skid wheels to the brackets using the included hardware.

  • 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.

A picture of the mounting plate with the measurements for the mounting holes has been attached.

The wheels have a 6" diameter and come with built-in zerk fittings. I have attached a review video of the above wheels for you as well as a sample install photo.

  • 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.

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.

If you wanted to use U-bolts you would need to provide your own. To match up to the mounting plate the u-bolt will need to be 3-1/4 inches apart measured on center.

  • 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.
