Never seen em before to tell the truth...I must venture out of me box more often...lol

Looks pretty heavy duty.

Hi monkeybucket
I think it only new on the market.
I like how it has adjustable height as my camper needs a long jockey wheel.

The Xo jockey wheel is so far the most solid jockey wheel I have ever used.
Purchased it about 4 months ago to go on our forward fold camper with 180kg ball weight. It is very solid and holds our campers weight and is easy to manoeuvre.
its adjustable height is fantastic.
When folded up it stays in place even on rough and corrugated roads.
After 5 trips its still functions like new.
Can highly recommend.

Thanks andylux
On the video they show them using another jockey wheel to get the height was that just for demonstration purposes, can you achieve full height without having another jockey wheel.

You will need to use either a second jockey wheel or I just use a jack stand.
If your camper has front stabilizer legs you could use them.

These are similar to the legs we set up on our lighting towers at work. Just this is more heavy duty.

Hi everyone
Just to let you know the XO series jockey wheel has one kind of fault as I found out while doing the Davies High Plain Trip from Tom Groggin to Benambra via the Davies Plain Track , McCarthy's Track & the Limestone Creek Track. Somewhere along the way at one of the two steep section one between Davies Hut & Charlies Plain which was rutted from 4wds grabbing for traction which had the cruiser lifting the front wheel while climbing the steep section & the other was on the Limestone Creek Track which had the steepest section which we counted 9 of those water diversion humps in a row before we reached the top.

As you can see from the photo the bolt that is the axle hangs down lower which we think has hit a rock with no give & bent the wheel frame down which then gouged rubber off the rims.

The jockey wheel still works fine but for a fix I'm going to see if I can turn the bolt around so it faces upwards when folded up.

Cheers TLC60S
