Has anyone fitted a swing away jack or similar to their Kendon trailer? Kendon used to make one, but it's nowhere to be found (plus it was stupid spendy @ $160). I can't find any bolt on's that will work. I did find this, which would require some welding, but there are no details on how this solution would be fixtured.

Any help would be appreciated. Surprisingly little info bout this on the internets.

There was one on my Kendon when I bought it. Not the best photos but they should help get you started.

Thanks t_bare!

I ended up getting a small 4" section of 1/4 "L" bracket to fit under the tongue and welding a pipe mount to it. Bought a 2k lb jack that I modified to take a wheel or a foot for $35. System works well. Field tested it at NECM.

<RANT>...local trailer businesses were completely useless. They just couldn't be bothered to help. I get its a small job. But rather than decline openly on the phone said "Ill get back to you" and just never called me back. I hope the internet kicks their ass. I wanted to give this to a local biz, and would have paid a premium. In the end, 90% of the time you gotta figure this crap out for yourself. Sad. </RANT>
