A friend of mine has a Bushey off road trailer, and wants to have corner steadies fitted to it. Dose any body have an idea where he can have this done?

Fred, het jy al daaraan gedink om Scissor Jacks te monteer?

Dennis dit is op 'n offroad trailer, hy is te hoog vir scissor jacks. hy soek die lang tiepes  amper soos daai wat op die conqurer trailer is.

Verstaan, maar daar waar jy hulle teen die chassis monteer, sit redelike dik ''spacers'' in

Ok, Either Outdoor trailer mecca @ Chamelion village at Hartbeespoort, they have a whole range of steadies, & if I'm not mistaken are either the suppliers of Bushy trailers.

I happen to think they either make the Bushy or they are made on the other side of Harties, close to the aquerium...

Right the other place to go is Comet Caravans, they also have a range of steadies.

The problem with the drop down steadies is that you have to "set" them twice IE undo the clamp let them drop further after you have unloaded, as the trailer lift's on the suspension.

It is also a problem to tweak the side-to-side level with just a drop-down steady....

I would suggest biting the bullet & spending the bucks for steadies with a crank mechanism, or as DK says putting a scizzor jack at the bottom... The problem here is mounting them onto the bottom of the drop-down, it needs a bit of engineering / welding / drilling.....

Slightly quicker downhill....
These days a teeny-tiny bit more slightly quicker....

BTW, I also mounted the drop-down's, then found out about the problems, and overcame them by putting scizzor jacks from Midas on the bottom....

So we live and learn.cool

Warren, not really complicated engineering. All you need is Channel Iron - 100 x 50 x 10 and then your bolts and nuts. I will try to make a drawing, take a photo and post it.

Terug by die onderwerp. Campworld het ook die steadies. Maar prysgewys gaan jy die minste betaal by Outdoor Trailer Mecca. Hulle pryse is baie goed.

Die steadies is maklik om op te sit elk net met twee boute deur die onderstel. Nie net stel die hoek waarteen die steady staan nie maar die poot kan langer verstel ook. Het een op die agter kant van "Krimp Varkie" gesit. werk puik.
