I was shocked at the heft and weight of this thing - quite impressive! Fortunately I haven't had to use it because of a flat tire, but it certainly makes a good wheel chock. Having dealt with trying to jack up a trailer with a flat tire, I'm glad to have this device at the ready, and the quality of its construction makes me confident it will work if I need to use it.

We own a 2012 Keystone Passport Grand Touring 3220BH Travel Trailer and bought this product after we had three tire incidents in three years of camping. We wanted a solution to changing the spare without waiting for roadside assistance and without haulling multiple floor jacks. Our camper has a dual axel load equalization (spread axel) design. Right after purchasing this product, a friend with a similarily designed travel trailer blew out a tire and called us for help. We pulled the trailer onto the Trailer Aid and were able to remove the blown tire, but the rise was not high enough to permit us to mount the spare. We had to go an get a floor jack to lift the second axel an additional 1 1/2 inch to allow the spare to be installed. It appears that the manufacturer Camco knows this is a problem because the item has a one inch rubber riser mounted on the top of it but this still does not lift the camper high enough for a successful tire change. Great idea but it falls short ( by about 1 1/ 2 inches....)

Easier in theory

Easier in theory for changing a flat tire ... unproven to this point. Looks sturdy enough and doesn't take up all that much room.

Works Great... I bought one so I was prepared and unfortunately I had to use it. Without it, I would of had to spend a lot more to have someone come change the tire for me.

The Boy Scouts have a motto be prepared I do not have a trailer jack with me, so thougtht I had better get one. Yes, I could use lego blocks, and I do carry them but this is one piece and has multiple uses. Design and quality is good. Con: This is a large item and is something else to carry.

Bought this ramp for changing tires on the trailer. Figured it would be lighter and easier than hauling a hydraulic floor jack and wood blocks along with me. Worked really well on my dual-axle setup. Before trying it, I was sort of questioning whether it would lift the other wheel enough, but it was the perfect height.

My travel friend had this item in his trailer on a trip down south on rt. 95 last spring. When I blew a tire on 95 on my trailer he pulled this out and and we had the tire changed in a matter of minutes. I said I'll not take another trip with out this item in my storage locker.

I think this product is overpriced for what it is. You can make one out of a few pieces of 2x8 boards. I'll wait till the price comes down to 30 bucks.

I had to use mine for the first time the other week and it worked perfectly. I did have to add one of my leveling boards under it to raise it just a bit more than the Trailer-Aid provided. It worked GREAT and made changing the tire a quick process. I always have mine with me in the bed of my truck. I would strongly recommend this to any trailer owner.

This is a GREAT idea; however it may not work on all trailers. It would not raise the other wheel on my 5th wheel equiped with MorRyde suspension. My advice; try it before you buy it.

Much better than a jack -- and faster, too !!

This is a great idea that makes a trailer tire change (with multiple axles) extremely easy and fast. Fairly small and easy to store. I've used mine twice now, and helped another RVer for my third use. Loosen the lugs on the flat tire while still on the ground, then simply pull (or back) your good tire on the same side up onto the Trailer-Aid. The flat is now up off the ground and ready to change. Back the trailer down off the Trailer-Aid, torque your lugs on the just-installed spare and you're ready to go. One word of caution: while there are "teeth" around the bottom of the Trailer-Aid, they do a better job of digging in to hold the device steady on dirt, gravel, or asphalt. Some concrete surfaces are just too slick to get it to bite and hold it steady as you pull up on it.

I had a blown tire on the front axle and had the tire changed and back on the road in less than 15 minutes. One of the best investments I've ever made. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with a multi axle trailer.

I received Trailer-Aid just before leaving on a trip. Had a blow out going to camp and a flat on the way back. This Trailer-Aid is the best money I ever spent. It is just as easy as advertised, if not more. No jacks to worry with, no crawling on the ground to find the place to put the jack. No jacking. Cannot praise it highly enough. Every trailer owner with two axles must have one.

We had a blowout on our tandem fifthwheel. The Trailer Aid alone did not lift the trailer high enough, the suspension on the wheel to be changed dropped too far to remove the tire, so we needed to place boards underneath the Trailer Aid to gain the height needed. The next time we needed to use it, I used the trucks bottle jack to raise the axle and spring to get the clearance needed. Other than that little problem the TrailerAide worked great and saved us a long wait had we needed to call someone to change the tire for us.

This sure beats trying to use a jack along the side of road. It worked great lifted the flat about 3 inches off the ground. Just be carefull when backing onto the ramp.

You should never be on the road without a jack like this. We experienced our first flat on our tandem-wheel travel trailer this summer. I had the spare off the rear bumper rack and on the trailer in 15 minutes.

I lost a tire on a long trip. I had to build a ramp by the side of the freeway to get the tire off. This product, which I purchased the next day, would have been wonderful. If you don't have one, get one!

Simple to use and light. But one problem by itself it won't raise my other axel high enough to change the tire. I had to use a jack to raise it a couple of inches. Possible solution by a friend is slip a 2" x 6" under the trailer aid.
