Has anyone any experience of this jockey wheel that has an integrated noseweight gauge?  To me it looks a good idea. But am concerned that it may not stow snuggly when towing and hang down excessively and risk grounding damage.  My 'van - a Bailey Senator has the jockey wheel inside the A frame.  Any comments greatly appreciated.

I know a couple of caravanners that do have them and haven't heard any bad reports about this type of noseweight gauge adaption on the jockey wheel. The one thing I will point out is that they can be expensive to purchase and do not conform to British Standard BS7961. However there is only one noseweight gauge that does and that is the Milenco one. Click on the link and see what Milenco's comments are regarding this.
