i enclosed the pics of the new wheels
they are inexspensive enough if i tweak one it aint no big deal. plus they dont hang any lower than the original rear stabilizer jacks
and one bonus of us at roosevelt state park in mississippi where you can tell the long overhang would make it difficult to stabilize

I'd put some Lock Tite on those threads.

might do that, i did put on some good lock nuts.

I would feel pretty bad if one popped off going down the road and did the bounce thing right in front of an unsusepcting driver

Would these casters be a good precaution to add on any tt to prevent bottoming?

Any casters would. My trailer has a long overhang and would drag too often for me so I installed some on mine. http://forestriverforums.com/forums/...read.php?t=486

Thanks for the tip. It'll also limit the wheelie height of the TV when I take off!
