Best swivel jack stand for bike trailer

I have a Kendon single bike folding trailer I use to transport my 910S and my GSXR 750 track bike. My stretched out shoulder is getting a little tired of carrying the tongue weight when I have to move it from it's storage area to my vehicle. I'd like to add a swivel jack allow me to roll the trailer around flat on the ground with and without the bike on it and take the weight load off my shoulder ligaments.

Kendon has a "swivel jack stand" on their website for $159.95 but I don't see much of a difference between that and ones from any of the online trailer parts stores retailing for $25 - $50. (I replaced the tubular round gooseneck on my Kendon with a square one after a drunk driver parked his car on top of my trailer so not sure the Kendon unit would bolt on for me anyhow.)

Does the use of the word "swivel" refer to the ability to swivel the jack 90 degrees in relation to the gooseneck?

Any trailer savvy folk out there that know what to look for in a "swivel jack stand"? My trailer only hauls one bike and weights about 350lbs so 1,000 lbs capacity is all I need.

Swivel means the wheel will pivot to allow direction changes as you move the trailer.

I use a trailer dolly, modified to be towed by my lawn tractor, to move my 24' trailer around.

Thanks for the info silentservice but that's way overkill for my trailer and not something I would want to bring along with me in my car.

I'm just wondering what to look for in a swivel jack stand like the ones in the links I listed. Anyone familiar with these?

Robust attachment and sturdy construction. Good bearings.

What silent said...plus the biggest, tallest urethane wheel you can get. Some of the $25 swivels will get caught up on a twig. And if you have to drag it across grass or rocks...you never know...not gonna do it with a 3 inch plastic wheel.
