Need new tongue jack for our 1970 Aristocrat LoLiner and of course they don't make the original so you make do with what they have. The problem being the new jack is to long and hits the ground pulling into driveways. Does anybody know it they make shorter ones. Side jack would be great but no room with the toolbox and propane tanks - see my pic keeping it together. It's great seeing this warmer weather and hope everybody is thinking about camping. Thanks - DB

We replaced ours on the 66 Loliner with a top wind. It didn't drag the ground but we had to grind the hole out for the shaft. The top wind was better because the old handle was about an inch from Vic's sport truck-fiberglass tail gate...

Check the level on your Loliner; you may be able to raise the stinger/ball a couple of inches so that the shaft will clear. Also, there were "skids" in the trunk for ours-they seemed to have been bolted on the frame at the rear to keep from dragging.

One thing about Loliners: they have very little tire clearance. Blow outs have been reported which are usually caused by the inside of the tire rubbing on the front spring bracket. There was a groove in our tire from just that. Triple check your tires and use original rims. VK
