How to Pick Out Landing Gear for a Trailer and Determine if Brackets would Need to Move


What front landing jacks would i use for 2006 alpenlite 5th wheel 32 agusta, the bracket on the bottom was bolted to the jack and then welded to the frame to remove it i will have to grind the welds and install and weld a new bracket on. thanks for your help

In order to pick out a direct replacement for the landing gear on your 2007 Desert Fox 38U we would need to know the distance between the mounting brackets. Otherwise you could just have the brackets removed from your trailer by a qualified welder and then install the brackets that come with the Bulldog Tandem Landing Gear Set # BD500162. Either way this landing gear set would work well for you, you just might have to have the brackets of your trailer removed and then install the brackets of the # BD500162.

The jacks would be the correct replacement for Lippert, Venture, and Atwood landing gear, as well as those from a few other manufacturers. The sure way to tell is that if the distance between the mounting brackets (underside of top bracket to top of lower bracket) is 17-1/2 inches. If this is the case, the landing gear should fit just fine.

If your frame clamps are instead 20-1/4 inches the Ultra Fab part # UF17-943010 would be a direct replacement.
