We are typically very competitively priced on all our products.  Usually a difference in "advertised" price is due to one or several of the following tactics:

 

  1. Doc Fees, freight fees, credit card fees, etc:  Often times dealerships will advertise 1 price but require that you pay several other fees that can add up to quite a lot of money.  At NC Trailers, we recommend that you register you trailer with us, but do not require it as many dealerships do.  We also offer a discount for cash or certified check rather than charging additional fees for credit card payments.  (FYI:  We are required to register trailers in many financing situations due to lien requirements) 
  2. Freight:  If the dealership is closer to the manufacturer their freight cost is lower.  Sometimes the dealer adds freight cost as an ad-on fee to the sale. 
  3. Factory Pickup:  Many dealers advertise trailers that are required to be picked up at the Factory (Factory Pickup Units).  This means that you have to drive to the manufacturer to pickup the trailer.  Most trailers sold in this area are manufactured in southern Georgia. 
  4. Order Only Inventory:  Some dealerships only offer these low prices for out of stock inventory.  It goes something like "We do not have that unit in stock at the moment but we do have this other unit in stock that cost more money".  What about the advertised unit?  "It will take 12 weeks to get the advertised unit.... are you sure you don't want the trailer I have today?  It cost more but I have it in stock today." I'm not saying we never run out of inventory at NC Trailers, but we always try to have our advertised trailers in stock. 
  5. Old Inventory:  Sometimes dealers will get stuck with old inventory.  Next thing they know, the inventory is a year or 2 old and no longer looks like a brand new trailer.  The best thing for the dealer at that point is to sell the inventory at a lower price to "get rid of it".  This isn't always a great deal for the buyer.  Why?  The trailer is due its first axle service before it's ever been used.  The tires will start to dry rot a year or 2 earlier.  The exterior of most trailers will have a used look.  The trailer is an older year model and will be reflected in the resale value. 
  6. Inferior Product:  As with any product, not all are created equal.  Even trailers have many differences that can make the price more or less expensive. Some trailer manufacturers will have a "cheap" line of trailers that they offer.  Manufacturers are going so far as to not offer a warranty to further reduce the price that they can sell their trailers for. Trailer manufacturers are "startups" that haven't actually been in business very long and have not built very many trailers.  Unfortunately most of these new manufacturers and even new dealers also go out of business just as quickly, leaving the customer with no ongoing support. Purchasing from both a reputable dealer and an established manufacturer will help ensure that you will have support available to you if you have questions, warranty claims, need parts or service after the sale. 

At NC Trailers we will sell you a trailer at the advertised price with NO ADDITIONAL FEES! Advertised prices do not include registration fees but again, you do not have to register the trailer at NC Trailers.  You are welcome to purchase the trailer from us and register the trailer at the DMV License Plate Office.  We pride ourselves in providing the best customer experience in the business.  

We are the highest rated trailer dealership in the Carolinas!

Importance of Trailer Jacks and their Basic Functions

 

The trailer jack elevates the trailer to a certain point allowing the trailer to be hooked or unhooked to and from any towing truck. These jacks are capable of directing trailers while on storage. Common models include swivel, A-frame, and drop-leg. The horse trailer is fitted with a jack at the tongue which is connected to the hitch. These jacks are an essential component of safe pulling.

 

A trailer jack comes in a variety of weight and length capacities. Users must take into account the length for extended and withdrawn positions. If extended, this equipment must hoist the coupler to an elevation so it can straighten the vehicle’s hitch ball. The jack has to withdraw far enough to rise above the road while moving.

 

Primary Functions

à        Elevate and lower trailers for connection to the coupler or hook as well as disengage it from the ball.

à        Maintain a level position for the trailer if it is not fastened to the vehicle.

à        Stabilizes parked trailers for loading and unloading.

 

A-Frame Jacks

The A-Frame trailer jack specifically for the bumper pull and standard ball trailer can weld or lock up into the A-Frame coupler. It can also be positioned in a bracket at the back of your coupler. Standard capacity is between 2,000 and 5, 000 lbs. It is appropriate for the A-Frame landscape trailer, camper, or utility. A common model is the 12V-powered or manual crank. The manual crank turns from either the topmost or side.

 

 

 

 

Side Mount

The Side Mount trailer jack connects to the edge of the pole tongue’s frame. It has a pivot type of design that allows the jack to swing upward for hauling and downward for jacking. The manual crank comes from the side or top portion. 

 

RV Heavy-Duty and Landing Gear

These jacks are mounted with buttresses on both sides of the trailer support that props up the trailer’s weight. The capacity is between 6, 000 and 12, 000 lbs although some models have higher capacity. The landing gear jacks are normally sold in pairs. It is also possible to purchase drop leg or follow jacks.

 

Jacks Secure Trailers

à        The Fifth Wheel trailer jack supports the trailer at the gooseneck hitch and provides stability from the front to the back portion. The large foot pads prevent tilting and going down. Capacity is from 1,200 up to 5,000 lbs.

à        Light-Duty is connected to the frame and folds up for purposes of storage. It is pulled down for actual towing. It is positioned at the corners or back portion of trailers. Capacity is between 300 and 1,000 lbs. This particular jack is compatible with small unity trailers as well as pop-up RV campers.

à        Scissor jacks also bolt to the trailer’s scaffold and operates using the handle and screw gear. Capacity is between 300 and 3,000 lbs. Manufacturers sell this jack in pairs with combined capacity of between 5,000 and 6.500 lbs. It is used to stabilize large campers.

à        Pipe mount jacks spin around a cylinder welded to the frame of trailers. Capacity is from 2,000 to 7,000 lbs. It is mounted on the tongue or trailer sides close to the back for leveling and stabilizing.

 

 

 

 

Accessories for Trailer Jacks

There are several accessories for trailer jack which include the following:

à        The jack feet disperse the load on the bar over a bigger surface to prevent the jack from being submerged in soft soil. It is also utilized to extend the jack’s height.

à        An integrated footplate kit converts the wheeled model to a dual-purpose footplate and wheeled jack. It suits models with the 6-inch or 8-inch wheel.

à        Jack wheel docks strengthen the jack wheel and prevent driveways from getting damaged or sinking in soft surface.

à        Wheels or casters facilitate easy maneuvering of loaded trailers into hitching position.

à        The jack wheel wedge makes sure trailers do not roll down or slip. It can also function as an instant jack for axle trailers.

à        A trailer jack gear provides users with the option of jack replacement although it is not always sold for all makes and models

à        The replacement bracket for mounting is the point used in connecting the jack to the trailer tongue. It enables mounting minus overlapping buckles or bolts.

 

How it will Work for you?

To find out if the trailer jack is appropriate for your trailer, identify its expanded and retracted height which is generally the measurement of said portable equipment. Take your measurements from the bottom going up to the point for mounting. These points vary and depend on the type of jack. The A-Frame model is measured down to the underside of the overhang. On the other hand, the pipe-mount jack is measured at the center of the pipe. Jacks with bolt-on brackets are measured towards the midpoint of the support bracket.

 

Bulldog Trailer Jacks

The Bulldog trailer jack is considered the leader in this industry since 1919 0r almost a full century ago. Bulldog manufactures reliable products for heavy-duty use such as cargo haulers, utility rigs (for pick-up trucks), and livestock trailers. Bulldog jacks are certified to be ASABE- S485 (American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers) Compliant which is acknowledged as the world-class standard in terms of performance for telescopic (screw-type) jack models.

 

When you look for a trailer jack, see to it that you get the one that will match your requirements. Take Bulldog as an example. The round jack supports light loads for coupling, uncoupling, and fixed support. The square and heavy-duty models are perfect for a mixture of medium and heavy-duty reinforcement while coupling and uncoupling as well as storing trailers.

 

Bulldog’s two-speed square jack offers an effective answer for heavy loads where prompt operations and adjustable cranking ratio are necessary. The rack and gear jack is the best option for more stability and scaffold for trailers with higher tongue weight. It also provides a convenient alternative for positioning rigs on the work site or driveway. It also has an assortment of accessories and Bulldog trailer jack replacement parts to make sure rigs operate at peak performance.

It lies parallel to the trailer tongue for traveling and moves back into the erect position for towing. The parts (precision-fit) ensure excellent stability.

Importance of Knowing the Trailer Ball Sizes

                         Whether you are planning to go out for camping or moving from one city to another, having a trailer provides a lot of conveniences. If you are planning to buy a trailer or already have one then do not make one of the most common mistakes that people make over and over again – not using the right trailer hitch ball.

So, before we tell you why trailer ball sizes are important, let’s start with the basics.

Using the Right Hitch Ball

On the hitch ball mount, there is a bolted trailer ball that acts as a connection point of a trailer’s coupler. The hitch ball is extremely important because it pivots the trailer and provides a smooth turning while you are towing. For your towing system, it is imperative for you to comprehend that the hitch ball has to be properly rated and your trailer’s lowest-rated item has to be equal to the maximum weight rating of the system. An upgrade of your hitching system to a higher rating than the maximum is not possible.

Things to Consider While Choosing the Right Hitch Ball

The Hitch Ball Diameter: An undersized ball enables the trailer to bounce loose and that is why the diameter of a hitch ball has to be same as the diameter of the trailer coupler.

The Shank Length: It needs to be long enough so that when the hitch ball is installed, two threads are visible and the nut is fully tightened.

The Shank Diameter: The selected ball mount’s hole diameter has to be same as the shank’s diameter of the hitch ball.

 

Know the Right Trailer Ball Sizes

To meet your towing needs, trailer hitch balls come in different weight capacities, shank diameters and lengths, and ball diameters. In order to select the right hitch ball, there are few things that you must need to know:

Ball Capacity and Diameter

With most trailers, you will find that hitch ball’s maximum towing capacity, diameter, frame or coupler is listed. For the purpose of towing a trailer, any hitch ball to be used must have the same maximum capacity and diameter as the one that is listed (it also can be greater than that). The diameters of most commonly used hitch balls is 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16".

Dimensions of Hitch-Ball Shank

It is important that the trailer hitch ball must fit your trailer and ball mount as well – there is a hole in ball mount that receives the ball. To fit diverse ball mounts, the hitch balls come in a variety of shank diameters and lengths. The common diameters of ball mounts are 3/4", 1", and 1-1/4", however, you can find balls in other sizes as well. After knowing the diameter (try to measure the precise one) of the mounting hole, the ball shank diameter can be chosen of the same size as well.

Ball Diameter Specifics

Hitch Ball Diameter

Specifications

 

1-7/8"

 

  • Its shank diameter is 3/4" and 1"
  • Its capacity is up to 2,000 lbs.

 

2"

 

  • Its shank diameter is 3/4" and 1" and 1-1/4"
  • Its capacity is about 3,500 lbs. to 8,000 lbs.

 

 

 

2-5/16"

  • Its shank diameter is 1" and 1-1/4"
  • Its capacity is about 6,000 lbs. to 40,000 lbs.

 

 

All in all, it is fair to say that you need to have some knowledge of trailer hitch ball sizes. It is important because the trailer coupler size and ball size have to match each other while the weight rating has to sufficient. It is best to do some search of your own or consult an expert. Talking about experts in the field, you can always ask North Carolina Trailer Sales if you have any questions related to trailers.
