Video Transcript for Ultra-Fab Products Skid Wheels - Frame Mount - UF48-979013 Review

Today we're gonna be taking a look at part number UF48-979013. This is the Ultra Fab skid wheels for class A RV's 34 feet and longer. The unique castors are going to bolt onto the frame of your RV to help prevent tail dragging and digging in while backing up. Your hardware is included. In our description, again, we do mention that it's a bolt on installation. You're going to find that the instructions are actually going to recommend that you weld the plate onto the frame of your RV and then you bolt on the plate to the master plate.

That's going to be the ideal situation and that's what we're going to recommend for you to do. The unit's made from a sturdy steel construction. It's going to have the extra durable roller bearings, they're going to be very long lasting. Now each assembly is going to feature two grease fittings: one down here for the wheel, and then one up here for the swivel design. That way correct maintenance can be carried out and you can still depend on the smooth operation as long as you keep those greased, and they're very easy to grease. You just hook up the grease guns to the fittings and pump the grease in there. You'll notice here that we have the steel wheel.

Now that's going to feature a quarter inch thick eurothane layer on the outer edge. That's going to provide anti-skid barriers. It's also going to ensure that the wheel lasts a lot longer. Again, this is designed for class A motor homes 34 feet and longer. The diameter of our wheel, that's going to measure six inches.

With this part number you're going to get two castor assemblies. I'm going to take just a few minutes to go over some critical measurements here. Now these are measurements that we're referencing to because a lot of customers have asked questions on these measurements before. The plates right here, now again, ideally these plates are going to get welded to the frame of the RV. These are going to measure going this direction about 8 and 11/16ths of an inch, and then if we measure this direction that's going to give us a measurement of about 4 1/2 inches. The holes here on the center, these are going to be separated on center by I'd say about 3/8ths of an inch.

The bottom holes and the top holes, these are going to be separated center on center by pretty close to 5 1/4. It's about 5 3/16ths of an inch. If we go up and down, so measuring this direction between the holes, that's going to give us a measurement on center about 3 1/8th of an inch. Then if we measure that diagonal distance that we have, that's going to give us a measurement center on center about 1 7/8ths of an inch. Now when it comes to the castor plate, this is going to give us a measurement of 6 1/4 of an inch by 4 1/2 inches. These holes are going to line up with those 4 main holes on that mounting plate, so once the mounting plate's welded onto the frame of the RV you can bolt the castor plate onto the mounting plate, and that's going to offer your nice secure connection. IN the instructions it's going to give both options, you can bolt the mounting plates on, but again it is going to recommend that you do weld them on. Blast measurement I want to go over. It's simply the height. If I measure from the top of the castor plate to the bottom of the wheel, that's going to give us a measurement that looks to be about 7 and 7/8ths of an inch. If I go from the bottom of that castor plate to the top of the wheel, or the bottom of the wheel, that's going to be 7 1/2 inches. That's going to do it for our review of part number UF48-979013 These are the Ultra Fab skid wheels for class A RV's 34 feet and longer. .

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. 300060

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. 455894

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. 389093

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. 325689

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!! 572445

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. 475816

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. 279652

I am on my second set of wheels. They are made out of Pot Metal.. (Not steel). Each set has broken when they are used 1 time. They just can not handle the weight of my 42ft. coach. Now looking for some other solution and/or set of wheels to help just me over a low water crossing area in road. fyi.. I am barely moving across low area when they just break out the middle pot iron. 445003

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. 483626



- UF48-979013
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 189936

by:

These skid wheels are pure junk. One trip up my driveway and they are toast. The material on the wheels did not hold up to backing uphill on a 50' long driveway. The driveway is made of brick pavers so I don't know if they would hold up on concrete. 647540

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.

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. 489748

I ordered these "casters" for my 44' toy hauler, several months ago, installed per instructions and they worked perfectly. Unfortunately a couple weeks ago I got myself in a tight, steep place and broke one wheel (my fault)!!! So I've ordered a replacement wheel which I think will solve my problems. I went ahead and ordered another set for added support, my choice, not really needed but for my satisfaction. I highly recommend this product!!!! 381594

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. 256579

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. 216103

Have you had any issue with bending or damaging your frame? Lots of folk have warned me that is the risk with skid wheels. I was told to use the non rubber 3 wheels for my 39 5th wheel. Have a new house with steep driveway...we will definitely bottom out when we go up....any other thoughts or advice?Thanks

  • Recommendation for Gaining 2 Inches of Ground Clearance on 5th Wheel or Travel Trailer
  • For your 2018 Crusader M29BH 5th wheel trailer, the easiest way to safely gain a couple inches height is to use the Dexter Over-Under Kit # K71-385-00 for 3 inch axles or # K71-384-00 for 2-3/8 inch diameter axles. This will raise your trailer at each axle by the diameter of the axle plus the spring stack height without changing anything else on your trailer. This is often referred to as flipping your axles. You may also consider the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels 6" Diameter - Qty 2 # UF48-979013...

  • Recommended Skid Wheels For RV With Long Overhang Towing A Trailer
  • 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. This will help prevent dragging and protect your undercarriage from unnecessary damage. 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...

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for Travel Trailer with Curt Hitch 13703 Installed
  • We have some skid wheels that will work for you. If you want something to attach to the hitch cross tube we have # UF48-979014 with 4 inch diameter wheels. If you'd rather bolt/weld skid wheels on then go with # UF48-979013 with 6 inch diameter wheels. For your set up though it looks like the set that attaches to the hitch, # UF48-979014, is the best option.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Skid Wheels for 35-Foot Travel Trailer
  • We do offer a range of skid wheels for travel trailers and all can be seen on the link at right. Given the substantial 35-foot length of your Greywolf travel trailer I do suggest a caster type skid wheel since it will be able to rotate and so disengage from the road surface rather than stay locked into one position as fixed skid wheels do. The set I suggest is the bolt-on 6-inch diameter Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979013 which are intended specifically for trailers longer than 34-feet.

  • Recommended Skid Wheels for 34 Foot Travel Trailer
  • 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 your 34 foot travel trailer I recommend the Ultra-Fab 6 inch skid wheels # UF48-979013. A good rule of thumb is the longer the RV, and the greater the distance between the rear of the RV and the back axle, the greater the force the skid wheels will have to deal with. The smaller 5 inch skid wheels # UF48-979012 would probably work,...

  • Skid Rollers for a 2013 Palazzo 33.2 Foot Long Motor Home with Rear Engine
  • I spoke with my contact at Ultra-Fab about the Hitch Mounted Steel Rollers, # UF48-979017. Because these rollers are not meant to sustain weight for extended periods of time, they do not have a weight capacity. They can be used with your 2013 Palazzo motor home. For large Class A motor homes with rear engines, skid wheels # UF48-979013 might be a better choice because of the large wheel diameter and because the extend down over 7 inches.

These larger 6-inch diameter wheels will bolt onto the frame of your 5th Wheel to help prevent the tail from dragging. The longer the RV/5th Wheel, and the greater the distance between the rear of the RV/5th Wheel and the back axle, the greater the forces the skid wheels will have to deal with.

Because that is a much stronger application area than a hitch you wouldn't have to worry about anything bending or breaking.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Skid Wheels and Placement for a 32 Foot Long 5th Wheel Trailer
  • For your 32' long 5th wheel trailer I recommend using the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels for Class A RVs part # UF48-979013. The skid wheels are designed to either be bolted or welded to the trailer frame but can be mounted to the bumper with a bit of ingenuity. 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.

  • What Is Weight Capacity Of Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels Item # UF48-979013
  • These Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels, Item # UF48-979013, are not meant to sustain weight for extended periods of time and so they do not have a particular weight capacity. Their purpose is to prevent the rear of your RV from dragging when backing up so that your undercarriage is protected. When you get your skid wheels, make sure they are the right choice for the length of your RV. I have attached a video for you to check out that is helpful.

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.

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,...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommendation for a 6 Inch Swiveling Skid Wheel
  • For a set of 6 inch diameter caster skid wheels you can use Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979013. This is a set of 2 skid wheels. I have included a link to a video review of these skid wheels 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.

  • Skid Wheels for a 36 Foot Long 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Since your 5th wheel trailer is 36 feet long I recommend going with Ultra-Fab skid wheels # UF48-979013. These wheels are designed for RVs that are 34 feet and longer. You can bolt these wheels to the bottom of the trailer to the frame so you will not have to weld.

  • Skid Wheel Recommendation for a 33 foot long Travel Trailer
  • The Skid Wheels part # UF48-979011 that you referenced are for RV's up to 30 feet long, so for a setup that would work on yours that is 33 feet long I would instead recommend the part # UF48-979013. I attached a set of installation instructions for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • 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.
