Need new pair of rear scissor jacks

Are the rear scissor jacks universal? I had a bit of a mishap which requires me to get new ones for the rear. Are they universal or ar ethe bolt patterns different and I need specific jacks? If specific, which ones do I Need? Thanks!

Not sure on bolt patterns but you will need to match height and weight limits for them to work.

Most bolt patterns are universal. I had to replace mine also. Got them on Amazon. There are only a few manufacturers. As mentioned previously, they are sold by weight limits. A hybrid like yours will be in one of the lower weight classes, therefore cheaper.

Just remember. Rear scissor jacks are not Jacks. They are stabilizers. Big difference. People seem to ignore this.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

Look at the ones on the camper now. They will have a weight capacity stamped on them, like 1500 lbs, 2000 lbs,etc. Don't get new ones with less capacity. More is ok.

Scissor Jack / Stabilizer Jack, they do the same thing, designed the same way and roughly serve the same purpose. Slide a scissor jack under a trailer and it becomes a stabilizer. Just saying. If they truly wanted to stabilize a trailer, they'd mount "Outriggers" on the sides like they do to motorized crane's.

They sell a part called SaveAJack. One piece bolts to the Jack, the other bolts to the frame. Two clips to hold on frame part. Allows you to remove for transport and no worry of damage during transport. In other words, nothing hanging down to catch the ground. I'm using them on my trailer.

I think i had the same mishap. When you mount the new stabilizer jacks. Run a string from the bottom of the back bumped to the bottom of rear tire. Mount the new jack forward, inside the tire string angle. This makes it harder to rip the new rear jacks off.
