    What is the best way to jack up a trailer when you have a puncture or a flat tyre?

    Put the inflated spare in front of the flat wheel.
    Pull the trailer (with your car) forward so that the flat wheel sits on top of the spare.

    Your vehicle jack will now fit under the trailer's axle.

    Invest in a 2-ton hydraulic bottle jack - they fit underneath the axle of your offroad trailer, but will probably not fit underneath a small luggage trailer. I have one in my offroad trailer, used it many times to jack it up to level it.

    Never unhitch the trailer or caravan when changing a flat .
    A 3 ton hydraulic jack works best.

    Most of my trailers have those levelling jacks fitted, so they have their own built in jack. Used a few times to change wheels. Very convenient.

    Hi Gert, I have used a product from Roadque called an EASY WHEEZY ALUMINIUM JACK, very safe and simple to use, can be used on round shaft or square shaft axle. I had to change two trailer tyres due to blowouts , a normal bottle jack or car jack is too high to fit beneath the axle when the rim is on the ground,see their website, www.roadque.co.zaregards
