Like the reviews I read, every grease fitting broke off removing the grease gun. Got the grease in hopefully it will be sufficient. Also one of the swivels binds up even after greasing. They are on now, not taking them off to return. Just hope they don’t bind under weight when needed. 703896

The Curt receiver hitch is a quality item. The installation took a little longer than expected to remove & re-install the enclosed underbelly on my 5th wheel trailer. The installation of the wheel kit was simple. 144920

The cast iron centers are not able to withstand more than two or three skids before they give out, I have purchased several pairs and the same problem happened to all of them I have purchased solid steel wheels and they work great 920045

I'm giving it 4 stars because of this company's very quick service and the price was right. I got my package after only a couple of days so etrailer seems to be a good site for purchasing accessories.... My review on the product will have to wait... I got two Ultra-fab skid wheels rated for up to 26' RVs and they reamed out after only about 10 or 12 uses (my RV is 26')... I am hoping this one with a 30' rating will work and it does look sturdier... Will see... 908952

I have not had the opportunity to test these skid wheels more than once. Therefore, not sure about their durability. I can comment on the installation process however. I took notice that there really should of been 16 washers included that would be used on the bottom bolt head and top nut head. The bolts and nuts “Surface Head” area are not large enough. As you tighten them down onto the wheel plate and support plate the pre drilled hole area are a bit too large, causing the bolt and nut head to try and pull through these holes. They did not actually pull through, but in my opinion, would have compromised the plate structure. So, I added washers thin enough not to interfere with the wheel bearing rotation at the wheel plate surface. As for the visual strength integrity check of the wheels; I am skeptical about them being strong enough in design. Did take notice that other reviewers are kinda 50/50 on these wheels holding up. Lastly, the ultimate wheel size should of been 5 inch opposed to 4 inch that I received, when applied to a class C or A Motorhome this would provide the extra 1/2 inch support necessary to give hitch and bumper clearance needed. As is, touch and go On my clearance. As for ordering and shipping; no issues, product arrived on time and as per ordered. 891872

My original order was delivered last week with the box scapped and torn open, the 4 plates were missing. I called immediately and you guys shipped out the plates. I received them yesterday and have installed these on the rear of my RV this morning. THANK YOU for the great service! 865240

The Skid Wheels are the answer to my draging the rear stablizing jacks off the rear of our trailer. I had ruined two jacks in past year and this product saved ME at least 3 this year thanks for a great product, 857673

My review would have been excellent but for the zerk fittings used for greasing the product. The hardware is solidly built and nicely solves the dragging hitch. The issue is that when I greased the units, two of the zerks broke off. I am not a stranger to using a grease gun and had not had an issue like this before. Further investigation revealed that the zerks were made of brass which is not an very hard material. I replaced all 4 zerk fittings with steel fittings and anticipate no further problems. 826427

Not really happy with the wheels,I backed into my driveway which is slightly uphill,my left wheel caught the expansion joint from the side of the wheel,and the spider or the hub of the wheel just broke.After looking at the broken wheel,the wheel part that touches the pavement is really tough looking with the rubber coating and all ,but the center,or spider is a cast piece and I could not believe how thin the metal is,the wheel looks so heavy duty and the center is like paper thin!I thought this wheel was heavy duty,but its not 805894

these are good skid wheels for a light trailer they row up a gas station grade so you don't drag the back end. 697439

The wheel broke and rendered the part useless in the first week of usage. The wheel made contact (as designed) at about 1 mph and broke at the inner hub casting. It was installed on a new 25 foot motorhome. Save your money and look for something better! 692293

Installed on a 19 foot Vintage Cruiser travel trailer to attempt to protect the leveling jacks at the rear corners. Too often while backing into our driveway without assistance, if I go too far left or right, I hit the inclined lawn on either side. Because of the bumper shape/size, I had to buy 6 inch 3/8 -16 machine bolts to replace the ones with the kit. Thank you. 666266

Received the box with the roller wheels in it, but the box was so damaged I did and inventory of the contents and found that on of the mounting plates was missing. I contacted etrailer right away on their customer service line. They apologized for the condition of the shipment and the missing mount plate. They got right on shipping me another mount plate, which delayed the installation of the wheel assemblies onto my Winnebago Aspect 30J motorhome. My suggestion is to pack the vendor box into another container with padding because of the weight of the container, the original vendor box cannot withstand the shipping handling that it goes through. Also as I was reviewing the hardware that was sent, I realized that due to the hole size in the mounting plates and the roller assemblies, that the bolts needed to have thick flat 3/8 inch washers to do a proper installation to prevent the bolts and nuts pulling through the mounting plate hole locations. Once I acquired the proper washers the installation was a simple task to accomplish, which I had completed in approximately 30 minutes. Haven't use the motorhome yet, but had a set of these roller wheels on another motorhome before this unit and they worked great. 644723

  • Replacement Wheel for Ultra-Fab Rotating Skid Wheels
    Skid wheels are not rated or designed to support the weight of a motorhome like your 2016 Forest River Forester so what I recommend is replacing the broken wheel of your Ultra-Fab Rotating, Hitch Mounted Skid Wheels # UF48-979014 with Replacement Wheel for Ultra-Fab Low-Profile RV Skid Wheels # UF48-001011.

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for a Camper Bumper that is 4 inch by 4 inch
    I went out into our warehouse and pulled a set of the Ultra-Fab Rotating, Hitch Mounted Skid Wheels # UF48-979014 and found that the distance from the bottom of the wheel to where the bottom plate will be is 5-3/4 inches. Since the bumper you plan to install the skid wheels on is 4 inch by 4 inch you will need to go with a weld on set of skid wheels like the # UF48-979023 or # UF48-979021 or the bolt-on type # UF48-979015 that includes 4-3/4-inch-long mounting bolts.

The Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class A RVs 34' and Longer - 6" Diameter - Qty 2 # UF48-979013 will be the correct fit for your Newmar Bay Star.

    We have skid wheels exactly for this issue. The skid wheels attach to your vehicle hitch frame and allow you to deflect the hit to your vehicle frame, bumper, or panels.

I recommend the Ultra-Fab Rotating, Hitch Mounted Skid Wheels for RVs up to 30' Long - 4" Diameter - Qty 2 # UF48-979014. If your RV is longer than that, then hitch mounted is no longer and option, but we have the Ultra-Fab Skid...

  • How to Choose Skid Wheels for a 32' Long Travel Trailer
    When choosing skid wheels you want to try to find some that won't reduce your ground clearance too much. Motorhomes typically use the larger skid wheels like the Ultra-Fab # UF48-979014 while shorter skid wheels like the Ultra-Fab # UF48-979021 are typically better for travel trailers. Attached is a link to our selection of skid wheels where you can filter them by their diameter. I recommend installing some that are long enough to be the lowest point towards the rear of your trailer...

  • Skid Wheels to Protect RV from Dragging on Driveway with Steep Incline

  • Does a Bumper Welded to a Trailer Frame Have the Capacity for a Skid Wheel part # UF48-979014
    The trailer of your bumper is welded to your frame so it should be very strong, it's also designed to take the brunt of the impact in an accident. I would say that your bumper should be strong enough to have the Ultra-Fab Rotating, Hitch Mounted Skid Wheels # UF48-979014 installed on them.

  • Will the Urethane Cover of the Skid Wheels part # UF48-979014 Easily Wear Off
    It would take a great deal of abuse to get the 1/4 inch urethane layer of the Skid Wheels part # UF48-979014 that you referenced to wear off. Unless you are dragging your trailer down the highway (which if so you have bigger problems), you wouldn't need to worry about the coating of the skid wheels to come off.

    Skid wheels like part # UF48-979014 are intended to prevent damage to the underside of RVs and would work well on a fifth wheel camping trailer if you have a hitch attached to the rear of your trailer. These skid wheels will fit square hitches that measure 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches. For skid wheels intended for trailers like your fifth wheel I recommend part # UF48-979011. This includes the hardware to bolt this set of skid wheels to your trailer. If you are interested in 6 inch wheels,...

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for 2018 Thor Quantum RS26
    Sorry to hear about your skid wheels breaking, you'd want to go with a heavier duty weld on application like the part # UF48-979023 that by design is stronger than what you've broken and will work well. These can weld to the frame of your RV or to your hitch.

  • Available Weld-On and Bolt-On RV Skid Wheels to Reduce Ground Contact
    Skids wheels come in several varieties and sizes but what they all have in common is that they are intended to 'take the hit' from ground contact instead of your RV's frame or hitch doing so. How long any set of skid wheels will last depends on how often and how hard they impact the road. As this is pretty tough to quantify these items do not have weight ratings per se.

U-bolts might distort the bracket that is attached to the caster. My contact at Ultra-Fab said that for this item you can use Grade 5 (USA) or Grade 8 (China) hardware of the appropriate length for your application, but not u-bolts.

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for a 28 foot Forest River Forester 28 ft RV
    The only capacity that the Ultra-Fab Rotating, Hitch Mounted Skid Wheels # UF48-979014 has is that it can't be used on RVs that are over 30 feet in length. Since it's hard to say exactly how much weight would be on this product at any given time they don't list a capacity for it. Since your RV is less than 28 feet this product would work well for you.

  • Is a Weight Capacity Listed For Ultra-Fab Rotating, Hitch Mounted Skid Wheels for RVs
    Ultra-Fab does not list a weight capacity for the Mounted Skid Wheels for RVs, part # UF48-979014. They said the wheels are designed to keep the trailer from being damaged when going up or backing down a driveway or over a curb and would not be used for extended use. These skid wheels are designed to work with RVs up to 30-ft long. For RVs that are longer than 34-ft I recommend part # UF48-979013.

  • Could the Ultra-Fab Products Skid Wheels # UF48-979014 be Used to Move a Trailer without Axles
    If you could come up with a way to install a several sets of the Ultra-Fab Products Skid Wheels # UF48-979014 on your trailer in theory you should be able to accomplish what you are looking to do. The biggest issue I could think of would be where to mount them so that they hang lower than the hubs of your trailer when the wheel are removed. To go this route you may have to remove the axles completely. If you can find a taller container that would be the easiest solution.
