    That's the double wheel model, which - counter intuitively - costs less than the single wheel I was looking at. I think the single would work better on my trailer.
    I think overkill is what I need. I have nightmares of a jack failing at a bad moment.

    Found over the years the dual wheel much better as weight on 2 wheels better distributed for easier rolling and turn around to include customer reviews.

    If using these vs jacckstands, check weight lifting capacity and you will need to chock the trailer so it will not move. One customer did not and boar and trailer went into ditch. He was in the middle of no where and was called to get him out. Took all day and he paid for that. Chock wheels
