How to Determine the Lift Capacity You Need in a Jack

A trailer jack is designed to lift the tongue of your trailer so you can connect the trailer coupler to your hitch ball. To do this, you'll need a jack with a lift capacity high enough to handle your trailer's tongue weight.


Tongue weight is the amount of weight that your trailer applies to the back of your tow vehicle. Typically, your tongue weight should be 10-15% of your total trailer weight (trailer + cargo). In other words, a 10,000-lb trailer would have a tongue weight between 1,000 lbs and 1,500 lbs. For a trailer this size, you would need a jack with a lift capacity of at least 1,500 lbs.


It's okay to have a jack with a weight rating that is higher than your trailer's tongue weight. In fact, a jack with a higher lift capacity should operate more efficiently, allowing you to spend less time cranking and more time camping.


Trailer and Camper Jack Lift

Every jack offers a certain amount of lift or travel. Screw travel is the distance the jack extends when you crank it (or toggle it to "extend" on an electric model). Some jacks include a drop leg for extra adjustability. On these jacks, you'll see the maximum extension of the drop leg listed in the specs as well. Adding the screw travel and drop leg travel together will give you the total lift. The total lift listed above can help you determine how high this jack will be able to raise your trailer.

This jack is military tough. What a machine. Works well. Great features. While the other jacks appear flimsy and ready to snap, this one is tough. Only issue is that the wheel trolly gizmo won't stay up when rolling trailer around in neutral key position. I can have a tendency of jamming into the ground and messing the gizmo up...hasn't happened yet, using small bungee.

Shipping times were excellent. Box was almost destroyed but the unit is 10X heavier than I thought, so that is probably the culprit. Need sturdier boxes to ship items that heavy. Installation instructions are weak. I took my old broken jack off and put this one in same spot, on port side of trailer. Turns out this thing has a F and R (which are backwards in my opinion, but that's immaterial) and it needs to go on right side to make that jack handle work. At least I think that's right. The instructions didn't say. It is unbelievably sturdy. I wore myself out putting it on, but I tried the ratchet function a few inches and it seems to be what I need. Getting too old to pull/push this boat into the slot in garage. This should help a lot. I do think it's a bit big for my boat. I am not sure I can get it down low enough. However, the nice part is that it has about 4-5 manual settings for up/down, so I think I can find the right spot. I'll need to use it to hook up and unhook a few times to have a true feeling for it. But I think it's the answer.

The forward and reverse are the directional way to point the nose of the trailer. It talks about this at the 4 minute mark on the attached video:

I haven’t had to use it yet, it will be a life saver if I get on a road that is to narrow to turn around, you could un hook trailer then turn truck and trailer separately then hook together again. That is what I had in mind when I purchased it. Thanks

If your trying to move a camper or trailer through tight RV gate this product makes it incredible easy with just one person. The ratchet makes moving your trailer up an incline worry free. The quality of the product is great, this is the most extreme tongue jack I have ever seen. Can’t say enough good things about it.

Heavy duty and works for tall trailers. I have an over landing trailer that I need lifted on to a higher clearance vehicle. This is by far the easiest and best one for this scenario. Very easy to use.

Review from a similar Extreme Jack in Trailer Jack


This trailer jack is truly "extreme". I was looking for an over-built one that I could count on to take some abuse. This one is perfect. The pins have extra strong springs. The back plate is extra thick. Even though I didn't need to use them, the bolts and brackets it came with are extra beefy. The wheels are extra strong. Basically everything about this jack is completely [awesome]! My favorite feature is the removable magnetic crank handle. It clicks into place with authority and stows in my tongue box. Also, it looks great too. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat...only thing I'd do different is get it sooner. I put up with the wimpy OEM trailer jack far too long.


Comments
This trailer jack has earned its keep this year. Its been worth every penny. I find my self moving my lil camper around wout hooking it up because of this jack. It rolls much better on my driveway and on gravel, especially when you have to change directions. My advice: GET THIS ONE, but choose the longer one. Ive needed a little more height for leveling a couple of times.

I purchased a “Stealth Hitch” and “Extreme Off Road Trailer Jack.” Both are awesome! The hitch is exactly what I was looking for because it doesn’t hinder the appearance of the rear bumper when not in use. The Jack is also perfect because it rolls easy and doesn’t mark up my paver driveway. Oh and looks awesome!!! GREAT JOB etrailer!!!

This off road Ark trailer jack is great! Very well built and looks great too. Just as important more to me as buying a product is customer service and etrailer is top notch. I had a small issue when mine arrived and Carol C was all over it as if I was her top priority fixing it promptly. I was starting to think that in the world we live in that there is no customer service left. Thank you Carol C. for giving me hope! I will continue buying all of my trailer needs from you! Quality, fast shipping and good coroner service. Can’t ask for more

The XO trailer jack is awesome! Wish I had found it before I injured my back trying to disconnect & “right” the original jack on my micro camper on a very uneven, rough site. The adjustability of the jack is unparalleled to any I have used. The dual wheels allowed me to roll my camper out of the garage, onto a gravel driveway with ease (and I am a “senior” female! I have since gotten a new camper and wish I had the XO on it!

Review from a similar Extreme Jack in Trailer Jack


I have had the Ark Extreme Off-Road Ratcheting Trailer Jack for 2 years and love it! It stows just like a normal trailer jack, but the ratcheting allows me to move it inside my garage, both for tighter storage and to align it to my truck for trailering out of the garage. I'm 79 years old and have no trouble moving a 4,000+ boat and trailer. I fish with a bass club, so it gets lots of use, so I can say it is both easy to use and built to last. One of my best purchases! I highly recommend it.

Love these jacks! I build a machine called a Cornroaster, which cooks ears of corn and there is a lot of tongue weight on the jack, it rolls and turns so easy with this jack, I couldn't be more pleased!!

So far so good. Durable and has handled what I have asked it to do with ease. The crank handle is magnetically held in place and I often forget to remove it. Handle could be a little beefier as I have bent mine. The cranking system is backwards from all of my other trailer jacks so intuitively you start to crank the jack and it goes the wrong way, no big deal but irritates me.

This trailer jack is the bees knees. No more lifting the trailer and pulling it around. It is compact, heavy duty, and everything they say in the video. Great product, quick shipping. I also bought the extended tongue and this awesome hitch. ETrailer is my credit cards new best friend.

Great replacement for cheap standard jacks. Love how solid it is- especially with my off-road trailer. Moves in dirt relatively easily with two wheels. The fact I can take off the handle off is just one extra bit of security for piece of mind. Would like to get the matching leveling jacks someday.

This product works great for getting our trailer backed into a tight spot off the alley. I can only get it so close with my truck. This gets it the rest of the way. Very high quality unit! The ratcheting handle keeps it from rolling the wrong direction with a slight slope.

The best! This jack rolls smooth through sand, mud, gravel and snow with no problem. This purchase has made our camping trips easier where our old jack used to get stuck and have to be dragged along. If you want to upgrade your swing up jack, this is the one you want!

Review from a similar Extreme Jack in Trailer Jack


I had heard the reviews of the 'off-road' trailer guys singing its praises, so for this much money it better live up to the hype. Well, it does. Not only is it heavy duty, but the options that allow it to store, extend etc.... make it a great purchase. I installed mine on a oversize teardrop trailer that will not be going off-road much, but I got sick of those other trailer jacks not wanting to turn the wheel and just dragging it sideways when the camp area is not perfectly level/firm. Won't happen with this one due to the design of the wheel mount. One downside is that is heavier than any jack I have had before, but that is the price of a well built unit, so I can live with that. One interesting feature is that the raise/lower handle is magnetized on, so it doesn't catch on anything during transport. Sure enough, the first time using it, I left it for a 2 hour highway drive home and it was still there. whew. All things considered, I am very happy with this purchase, even with the premium price.

etrailer was very prompt with shipping and made for an easy transaction. Had to buy my own installation nuts and bolts as the ones provided are too short and the blue cap on the jack was smashed during shipping. Not a huge deal I suppose. Overall the jack looks to be nice and sturdy and a solid product.

Check online for accurate measurements. The measurements provided on the etrailer site are not accurate in many cases for the Ark Jacks. I went over the measurements in detail with etrailer Customer Support prior to ordering and specifically went over the tongue width - which is the primary measurement you need as the mounting screws go horizontally. They confirmed the mounting hardware would work. If you have a 3" tongue, the provided screws will NOT work. When I contacted etrailer Customer Support, they say just says go to the Hardware Store.

Review from a similar Extreme Jack in Trailer Jack


This was a great purchase. With this trailer jack I can easily maneuver the trailer to fit into a spot. With my old jack it took more strength and took more time. What I like about the jack is it’s locking mechanism when it is in the up position. I also like that the height of the jack can be easily altered for varying terrain. I have had to use this feature several times with good results.

Heavy duty yet easy to maneuver a boat with. No cheap plastic wheels on this jack that get caught on a small pebble.

    Since the wheel on the Extreme Off-Road Ratcheting Trailer Jack w/ Dual Wheels - Sidewind - 15-1/2" Lift - 1,100 lbs # ARK54FR you were looking at turns, it can be ratcheted at any angle it is pointed.

  • Weight of ARK ORJW1SU and ARK54FR Extreme Off-Road Trailer Jacks
    Because they're meant for off-road use and abuse, ARK trailer jacks are built to last. They are very heavy which makes them able to withstand a tough off-road environment. The # ORJW1SU Extreme Off-Road Ratcheting Trailer Jack weighs about 37 lbs while the # ARK54FR dual wheel model with the higher capacity weighs about 55 lbs.

  • Recommended Off-Road Trailer Jack For Tear Drop Trailer
    I recommend the Extreme Off-Road Ratcheting Trailer Jack w/ Dual Wheels # ARK54FR as being the best off road jack on rough and soft ground for your tear trailer. The jack was designed and tested in Australia to withstand the harsh environment of the Outback. This jack having the dual wheels will help prevent it from sinking on soft ground. The wheel also has the ability to be locked so it will not roll easily. You can use the ratcheting feature to more easily move the trailer in tight areas.
