Video Transcript for Ultra-Fab Products Skid Wheels - Frame Mount - UF48-979022 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number UF48-979022. This the Ultra-Fab steel mini-roller for trailers and RVs. The unique roller is designed to weld onto the frame of your trailer or motor home, and that's going to prevent the tail from dragging and digging in while backing up. This is made from a heavy duty steel construction. It's very strong, very durable. Again, it is designed for a weld-on installation.

With this part number you're going to get the bracket, you're going to get the actual steel wheel, you're going to get the bolt, two washers located on each side of the wheel, or one located on each side of the wheel. Two washers total, and a lock nut for the other side. This part number is going to include one roller assembly. If we take a look at some of the dimensions real quick starting with the overall height, that's going to give us a measurement of 2 and 13/16 of an inch. Now the wheel diameter is going to measure 2 and 1/2 inches. The wheel width, that's going to give us a measurement of an 1 and 1/2 and then when it comes to the bracket, measuring this direction, outside edge to outside edge, that's 2 and 5/16 of an inch.

Measuring this direction, outside edge to outside edge is right at 2 inches. That's going to do it for today's review of part number UF48-97922. This is the Ultra-Fab steel mini-roller for trailers and RVs. .

I am using these to make a equalizer frame for a inground automotive lift that I have at my repair shop. The lift is 30 years old but in excellent condition the equalizer overtime had rusted at the bottom finally broke it's made out of heavy I beam. The rollers will be use to keep the frame from moving inside the encloser that the equalizer moves up and down with the lift. The lift is a twin post which is the reason for the equalizer. The replacement is available from ManuFact sure for $1200. I bought the material for less than 200. That's etrailer for the great product and service. Katie is a amazing person that takes care of her customers. I will post pictures when I finally finish it 432374

Needed these for my 20' dove tail car trailer. Got tired of it dragging tail on grade changes. All that scraping was annoying and causing damage so they are very worth the money. Good solid, simple, design and effective for the price. And as always Etrailer exceeds their own policies, got shipped early....nice bonus. 122960

These are weld on type wheels and this one has bearings in it along with a grease fitting. I however did not use this on a vehicle. I used this on a wood working table that I made that has a center leg with a tongue jack in it with this wheel attached. Now I can crank up the jack and move my table anywhere in the shop and up by my saw as an out feed table. I purchased another smaller version for my router table cabinet that I am about to build. Great product by the way! 168508

Super fast shipping and a great product. Purchased these wheels to weld to the underside of the rear end on my 40' enclosed gooseneck trailer due to it dragging the ground when I get off the road onto hilly areas trying to get back in the woods where we camp. Will definitely be doing business here again! 422328

This product was exactly what I needed to prevent my cargo carrier from grinding away on grade changes. In order to maximize clearance, I only used the bolt and roller. I cut a rectangular hole on the bottom rear of the main frame tube, drilled a hole for the bolt and the roller slipped right in. After a year of moderate use, there is hardly any visible wear. This has definitely saved wear and tear on my cargo carrier. 247705

Looks like just what I need to weld to my drop hitch. I'm towing a mini-van behind a motorhome and had to get a 10 inch drop hitch which drags on the asphalt at times. The Mini- Roller seems to be well made and of good quality. I'll send a picture when done. 63426

Ask the Experts about this Ultra-Fab Products Skid Wheels
Do you have a question about this Skid Wheel?


  • What are the Dimensions of the Ultra-Fab Steel Mini-Roller for Trailers and RVs UF48-979022
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled roller # UF48-979022 to take some measurements. The overall height is actually 2-13/16 inches. The wheel does have a 2 inch diameter. The mounting bracket itself is 2-5/16 inches across and 2 inches front to back. I have included a picture with the dimensions for you.

  • Do Ultra-Fab Steel Mini-Roller for Trailers and RVs Have A Weight Capacity
  • I called my contact at Ultra-Fab and asked about the weight capacity of the Steel Mini-Roller for Trailers and RVs, part # UF48-979022. They said there is no weight capacity listed because it is not designed to bear a constant weight. These are designed to be welded to the bottom of a trailer or motorhome at the rear so that when going over an uneven surface the mini-roller is used as a deflector to prevent damage to the underside of the trailer. My contact told me that using these...

  • Best Location to Weld Ultra-Fab Steel Micro-Roller Skid Wheels # UF48-979021 on 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Thank you for providing a photo diagram of your 5th wheel rear frame area where you are intending to install Ultra-Fab Steel Micro-Roller Skid Wheels # UF48-979021. The best location to weld on these rollers is at or just behind the point where the trailer's frame is making contact with the ground. If your indicated location is making contact with the ground (but nothing behind it is) then it would be a suitable spot. If there is scraping behind your indicated location, such as on the...

  • Drag Roller Recommendation for Boat Trailer with Prop Protector Cut Out
  • For your application there really is only going to be a weld on solution that's reasonable like the part # UF48-979022 that you referenced. The frame dimensions are unknown so a weld solution would be better since that really doesn't matter. Welding is typically pretty cheap too. Especially for a small job like this.

  • Will the Draw-Tite Hitch Part # 24660 Scrape on a 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP
  • Whenever you install a trailer hitch receiver like the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24660 on a vehicle that sits low like your 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP, the chance of scraping is always going to be a concern. However, what you can do is have a skid wheel like part # UF48-979022 welded to the bottom of the receiver tube as this would then prevent any scraping. This is the only option we have to prevent scraping. If you can tell me what you will be using the trailer...

  • Bolt Hole Diameter on Ultra-Fab Steel Mini-Roller # UF48-979022
  • I went out to our warehouse to take a look at the Ultra-Fab Steel Mini-Roller # UF48-979022 referenced in your question. I was able to confirm that the bolt hole is exactly a 1/2 inch in diameter. The wheel itself is not available as a separate item but the housing can be easily removed. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.

  • Why Don't Skid Wheels Have a Rated Weight Capacity Limit?
  • The Ultra-Fab Steel Mini-Roller for Trailers and RVs # UF48-979022 is not rated for a weight capacity because it is not intended to be consistently bearing a load. Because of the function of a skid wheel, the manufacturer does not test them to do anything but redirect the load to keep the frame from making contact. This skid wheel is extremely durable and made for heavy duty applications.

  • Does the Ultra-Fab Steel Mini-Roller # UF48-979022 Have a Grease Zerk
  • The Ultra-Fab Steel Mini Roller that you mentioned part # UF48-979022 does not have a grease zerk. However we do have the Ultra-Fab Jumbo Roller that is 2 inches wide by 3 inches tall that does have a grease zerk and it is part # UF48-979023.

  • Skid Wheel for a Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2006 Toyota Corolla
  • I do have an option for you but the body of the Ultra-Fab Steel Roller for RVs part # UF48-979020 is designed to surround a 2" trailer hitch receiver and since the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11265 for your 2006 Toyota Corolla has 1-1/4" receiver which is obviously smaller, the fit will be very loose and not secure. The only option I have for you would be to weld the Ultra-Fab Steel Mini-Roller for Trailers and RVs part # UF48-979022 onto the bottom of your trailer hitch receiver...
