Whats your experience With skid wheels. Steel vs poly,welded vs bolt on, rotating vs fixed. To many options and no experience makes this a difficult decision.

Any thing you ADD Reduces your Clearance which Adds to the Problem! Youroo!!

I thought about skid wheels but made my rear air bags manually adjustable instead. I can gain 3 to 4 inches when needed by airing the bags up.

I made a set of roller skid wheels I posted on another issue which they did take a beating this year, I plan on raising the hitch and adding a manual air switch to raise and or lower the air bags before we venture out for 2018.

I have 2 skid wheels welded on frame on both sites of the tow bar connection. I bought them through Camping World. They decrease my clearance less than an inch. Iím glad to hear them rolling rather than the rear cap dragging, itís a different sound.
