I suppose it is horses for courses.

I am using the 740 mm. It will give me approx 120 mm to wind out before the foot touches the ground.

If the ground is any more unlevel than that, where you need to have the shorter legs, you probably won't get the trailer of the hitch.

If I do run into the above problem, the Alko leg will still stabilise on a bit of an angle. WIN WIN.

Cheers

Anthony

Following on from last post here, have since finished the Alko leg attachment brackets and bolted them on to the front corners of the camper. With the leg remove the bracket protrudes 50mm from the bottom which is a lot less than the original position with the legs bolted on and protruding some 120mm, this way with the quick removal of 2 x pins the leg is off and can be stored when travelling off road.
Another advantage is if the leg can`t be extended due to the terrain, the leg can be locked at an angle and still used. So we will see how they perform in a couple of weeks. P_20160516_104326.jpg  P_20160516_104253.jpg

Like many of us on the forum I have considered much of what has been posted by those that have had a similar issue and I have tried to put my own spin on it to suit my needs.

I am using the 740mm leg and I had a mate weld a steel bar onto the U bracket that comes with the leg. This bar is to fit into the existing mounting point and I fixed the bracket there using some marine nuts and bolts. These nuts and bolts do not hold up the trailer but is used to keep the leg in place. The weight of the trailer is wholly on metal bar that has been welded onto the bracket.

This meant that I do not have to remove the legs and store them elsewhere, instead they fold up out of the way and when I need them I just fold them down and adjust the length to suit.

That is very similar to the way I have done mine.

Main difference is I have welded the rod along the top bracket rather than on the end and the whole leg spins around and is kept in place with an anti luxe clip. This protects the mechanism a bit.

The trailer is up at the farm at the moment, when I go up next week I will take some photos.

Cheers

Pins are large gal nails from hardware, they have a chain link welded on the head ,cut down to length with a hole drilled in the end for the R clip.
