Too bad it wasn't earlier in the season, Bill, or I'd have taken you up on it. Unfortunately, all I'm going to do at this point is winterize, then take the TT up to the mine and store it for the winter. That wouldn't be much of a test.

However, I have looked at this product on your website and almost bought it (I purchased the Carefree of Colorado Pioneer Awning Upgrade Kit instead). It might be beneficial in my situation because my TT has a double stacked frame and the hitch is higher off the ground than a normal trailer. This sometimes causes me problems when the campsite is sloped uphill from front to back because I can't raise the front high enough to level it. The Fastway Flip looks like it would add about another six inches or so to my tongue jack, which would be a help.

This is an old post with no responses, so I thought I would see what happens. I saw the Flip at my local RV store and recommended it to my daughter and son-in-law for their new trailer. The RV store said everyone who bought one was very satisfied with it.

The price was VERY reasonable at $50.00. My son-in-law parks his trailer in their driveway and really has to jack the nose in the air to make it level. The first time he parked it, he over extended the jack and I had to repair it. He now uses a block of wood to get the height he needs. The Flip makes it even easier by only requiring him to crank down the jack a few inches.

The install was simple, especially with the template built into the unit. We drilled the holes, bolted it on and it works great, both in the flipped positon and in the down position. When lowering the jack and the Flip begins to take the pressure of the tongue weight, the Flip moves into position and is solid as a rock.

Thumbs up Flip Jack Review

Hello all,
I just finished my second trip using the Flip Jack on my 30 ft travel trailer and wanted to give my report.

The Flip Jack was something I have been wondering about getting for a while just for the height and stability which I thought it would give me.
Well, here is my review from ordering one to final report.

I ordered the Flip Jack from rvupgrades.com
The first thing they wanted to know was the size of my jack post it was going to be mounted to. Great communication on their part !

I measured it to make sure and the order was placed.

Two days later it arrived just as communicated.

The insallation was a breeze, it took about 20 minutes from getting a few tools until I was using the jack.

The instructions are very easy to follow and the safety was stressed throughout. Hole location could not get much simpler.

Listen to me very carefully, look me in the eyes GUYS, (FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS).

I have to say that I now love this thing!!!!

It adds great stability and ease to setting up my tt. I was using several blocks before and now jut have to use a couple under the foot.

If you are contemplating getting one I highly suggest it, Thanks to rvupgrades.com for their great service. I will shop there again soon.

Scott from Indiana

Thanks Scott!

We camp with Islapp (a member here) who also uses the Flip Jack and he has found it to work just as well as you have.
