How to Pick Out Landing Gear for 1996 Jayco Eagle 225 BH


Looking to replace landing gear for my 5th wheel. Jayco no longer carriers the information about the RV. Says its too old they no longer carriers replacement parts for this model. It looks like in the pictures it welded on and bolted. I was looking at the LG-1 to replace landing gear but was not sure about the weight. Gross weight is 7200lbs Jayco did not have that information anymore about the Rv too old. I found Jayco mention Atwood 75360 witch is no long made. Jayco states it made 3 changes in landing gear since the late 90s.

In order to pick out a direct replacement for the landing gear on your Jayco 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.

I attached a picture that shows the dimensions that this landing gear set would fit with.

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 as shown in the diagram) 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.
