Default Trailer-Aid for changing a tire?

Has anyone used the Trailer-Aid ramp for changing a flat tire on a tandum axle?

I was thinking of buying one for tire changing and also for getting a tire off the ground to spin when I grease my wheel bearings.

What do you think?

I've looked at them is all.

I carry a small 2 ton hydraulic jack. Placed under the spring where it's attached to the axle works for me for changing a tire (never had to yet) on the trailer or the TV.

Also works well for spinning the tire when greasing the bearings.

my neighbor has the Trailer Aid ramp and swears by it. I just use the jack out of the truck.

If I ever have a flat, I would use Coach-Net...
(I guess I should learn how to change a tire, eh?)

But, I could always use one of my Andersen levelers - same principle as the Trailer-Aid.

Hey a question I can answer instead of ask!

If you have those stacking levelers, you can use then instead of buying something else. That's how we changed our tire the other day. It worked great.

The sheriff that stopped to help said he had built a ramp out of wood that he used with his trailer. (Two other passersby stopped to help and actually changed our tire for us. This is Texas, you don't need triple a, we are friendly) We were actually still waiting for triple a to call us back and the good Samaritan was all done. I hate triple a.

Here's a video to build one probably like the sheriff had
