Today we're going to take a look at the Ultrafab five inch diameter ultra swivel skid wheel for the class C RVs up to 34 feet in length, and it's for a quantity of two. Now, these unique casters attach to the frame of your RV, and they help prevent tail dragging and digging in while backing up. They are a drop forged caster for superior strength to other casters, and if you notice they use extra strong metal wheels, and extra durable roller bearings, which are long lasting. If you notice they do have a Zerk fitting on the wheel here, and the Zerk fitting right here on the caster. This allows you to grease the bearings on the casters, and the bearings on the wheels. If you notice on the wheels, it also I a quarter inch think urethane layer on the outer edge of each wheel.

This provides and anti-skid barrier, and it insures that the wheel will last even longer by avoiding wear to the metal wheel.These brackets is what you'll weld to your RV, then you'll bolt the skid wheels to the brackets using the included hardware. Application again, is for class C motor homes up to 34 feet in length. The wheel diameter is going to be five inches. So, you can see if we put a ruler on that there's your five inch diameter. Does include everything laid out here on the table.

This is a good product. With some minor adjustments I was able to make it work well. I was disappointed that the plates were rusty. It appears that the package had been opened, left out and then returned. Otherwise, good. 710779

This was one of the best purchases we have made for our RV. No butt bumper dragging in dips. At one campground one guy didn't wait for us to park our RV. He asked where we got our wheels, so we told him. While there we saw many people bottom out in that dip and were confident that it didn't need to be if they had put on skid wheels. 664392

I bought a set of the 'dolly' wheels for use under my Class C motorhome. Utilizing the on-line instructions, the job appears to be straight forward. Hoping 'dolly' wheels will end the scraping of the rear of the camper on the pavement in front of my inclined driveway. Will be waiting for warmer weather to have mounting pads welded to the frame of the motor home. 232986

I have been very satisfied with the skid wheels. Better to roll across the surface than to grind against the ground or concrete.

Ask the Experts about this Ultra-Fab Products Skid Wheels

  • Do Motorhome Skid Wheels UF48-979012 Have a Rated Weight Capacity
    RV skid wheels like # UF48-979012 from Ultra-Fab do not have specific weight capacities because they are not intended to carry a load for any extended period of time. Skid wheels usually make only brief contact with the ground. These particular skid wheels are suitable for use on motorhomes up to 34-feet and this is based on their size more so than their weight capacity. The only weight consideration for these is a general one which is that they are not recommended for use on diesel...

    Here are the instructions for Swivel Skid Wheels # UF48-979012 1. Position a board as shown in Illustration 1. Place one end of board just behind rear wheels. Prop up the other end of board so board comes in contact with the lowest point of RV’s rear under carriage. 2.

  • 5 inch Skid Wheels Recommendation for 32 Foot Class C RV
    We have a set of weld on skid wheels that are 5 inch in diameter like the part # UF48-979012 but the largest diameter 4 inch set we have bolts on like the part # UF48-979014. The 5 inch wheels would be the correct size for your 32 foot RV as well.

  • Will the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels Work in Gravel
    The Ultra-Fab 5" Skid Wheels part # UF48-979012 and the Ultra-Fab 6" Skid Wheels part # UF48-979013 will both work on a gravel surface but the gravel will be harder on the caster wheels than a normal flat paved surface will. However, if the gravel is packed hard enough then you should be alright. There is always going to be limitations with the skids wheels such as how heavy the RV is, how hard it hits, and how much weight is on the rear of the RV.

  • Can Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class C RVs up to 34' Long # UF48-979012 Bolt On
    To install the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class C RVs up to 34' Long # UF48-979012 that you referenced you have to weld on the mounting bracket and then bolt the wheel base to the bracket. You cannot bolt the kit directly to your trailer.

  • Skid Wheels for a 31 Foot Forest River RV
    The best skid wheels for your 31 foot Forest River Forester are going to be the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979012. The 5" diameter wheels are bolted to brackets which are welded onto your RV's frame. Please keep in mind skid wheels are only to help tail dragging when backing up and should not be relied upon to stop the full force of an RV from coming into contact with a steep driveway. They can help if the angle is such that the RV's rear truly does "skid" off the driveway, however.

    For your 4 inch bumper on your Class C motorhome, I recommend using the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class C RVs up to 34' Long - 5" Diameter - Qty 2 # UF48-979012. As long as your 4 inch bumper is welded to your frame, you can bolt these wheels to the bumper and be good to go as long as you don't have anything that hangs below your bumper.

  • Do Ultra-Fab 5-Inch and 6-Inch Skid Wheels Use Same Mounting Plate
    The 6-inch Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979013 use the same mounting plate as the smaller 5-inch model # UF48-979012 so you certainly can change to the 5-inch size if they better fit on your RV. My contact at Ultra-Fab confirmed the mounting brackets are the same. You also have the option of just replacing the wheel with 4-inch part # UF48-001011 which will cost you substantially less. These are sold individually, please note.

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for Jayco Greyhawk 30Z

  • Overall Height of Ultra Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979012
    The distance the Ultra Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979012 will hang below the frame will be 6-7/16 inches. I do not recommend attaching them to the hitch. Doing so could actually compromise the structural integrity of the hitch and would likely void its warranty. The frame is the ideal location for wheels like these. In general adding air bags will not increase the ride height of the vehicle. Sometimes they can by putting as much air in the bags as they can safely hold but then that will...

  • Can Ultra-Fab RV Skid Wheels be Used on a 10,000 Pound 5th Wheel Trailer
    Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979012 are designed for Class C RVs up to 34 feet long but do not have a weight capacity. A 10,000 pound 5th wheel trailer is going to weigh less than most 34 foot Class C RVs though, and the full weight of the trailer won't be on the wheels, so you can use them with your trailer. The same goes for # UF48-979013 which are designed for Class A RVs longer than 34 feet.

  • Can Skid Wheels be Used on a 2018 Tiffin Open Road 36 Coach for Ladder Clearance
    Although I don't know what size skid wheels you currently have, you can use some of our skid wheels for a Class A RV like your 2018 Tiffin 36. The part # UF48-979012 that you referenced has 5" diameter wheels and is rated for a Class C RV. For your Class A RV I recommend the part # UF48-979013 which has wheels with a 6" diameter instead. These come with a 1 year warranty.

  • Can Skid Wheels Be Mounted To Hitch Bar On 2005 Fleetwood Pace Arrow Motorhome
    The Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels, part # UF48-979012 you referenced are designed to be installed on the rear of a Class A RV up to 34 ft long, but are also able to be installed on a hitch bar using the alternate method as shown in the attached drawing. Part # UF48-979013 are designed to be used on Class A motorhomes that are 34 ft long or longer, which I believe your 2005 Pace Arrow is. You can use the alternate method for attaching the skid wheels to the hitch bar for these wheels.

  • Ultra-Fab 5 Inch Skid Wheel Weight Rating?
    The Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class C RVs up to 34' Long - 5" Diameter - Qty 2 # UF48-979012 are not rated for load because they are only intended to redirect weight not bear the weight themselves. The manufacturer does not test them for weight bearing capacity due to their function, but they are extremely strong casters with a 1/4 inch thick urethane layer on the outside of the 5 inch wheel.

  • Recommended Skid Wheels For Thor Chateau 31W Motorhome
    The skid wheels I recommend for your motorhome is part # UF48-979012. This is rated for trailers up to 34-ft long and in my research I found your Thor Chateau is a little over 32-ft long. The # UF48-979012 includes brackets that are welded to the frame of the motorhome . You then bolt the skid wheels to the brackets. I would not recommend attaching the skid wheel to the motorhome hitch because it could put excessive stress on the hitch.

    The Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class C RVs up to 34' Long - 5" Diameter - Qty 2 # UF48-979012 and other skid wheels are not rated for load capacity because they technically don't carry a load.

  • Will Ultra Fab Skid Wheels Fit Forest River Class C Sunseeker and Help Prevent Dragging
    The skid wheel setup part # UF48-979012 that you referenced would work well for you to help prevent the dragging but it actually installs to the frame of the trailer and not the hitch or tow bar. Because that is a much stronger application area than a hitch you wouldn't have to worry about anything bending or breaking. For larger wheels that can attach to the hitch tube we have the part # UF48-979013 which are designed for larger motorhomes over 34 feet. These will extend down 7-5/8...

Skid wheels are not really vehicle- or trailer-specific since as you point out driveways and approach angles can be all over the board. Naturally you'll want to use a skid wheel that is large enough to prevent bottoming out of your trailer's important structures, such as your black water pipe.

For a bolt-on application for RVs/trailers up to 30 feet long I recommend # UF48-979011; for models up to 34 feet long, # UF48-979012, and for models over 34 feet long # UF48-979013. A...
