I am a little confused as to what jockey wheel assembly I need.
I am going to replace the whole assy, as current one looks tatty and the solid tyre has chunks out of it, but am unsure as to whether I need a heavy duty one or if a medium duty will be ok? It is definitely a 48mm shaft size.
Its on a Coachman Pastiche 2004 with an Al-Ko chassis and is simple to replace as had it out to see if I can find any part numbers....
Looks as if it has been replaced previously as it has a black winding handle, and I assume Al-Ko one are always red?
Many Thanks

Love my caravan too much...

A heavy duty jockey wheel is generally described as the type with corrugated shaft intended for heavy trailers so all you need is a standard 48mm shaft jockey wheel. Genuine Al-ko are the most expensive & you can get cheaper but they may not be as good.

If shaft is not bent or damaged then you can just replace wheel if you want. Knock out split pin & whack out axle. You can also unwind jockey wheel shaft into 2 pieces & clean & grease thread to make it smoother.
