Howdy, folks. I got some 1200 hours on my replacement tailwheel, and I needed another because the bearing wore out, which is why I knocked off a star from my otherwise high regard for this thing. It rolls along very well while I taxi, and steers with little trouble. I noticed the bearing wore out well before the tire, which remains almost pristine. Have fun with your RV. I love mine.
Fits Nicely either the Vans or aftermarket fork. Tracks nicely seems to wear very good. Looks Showy and high tech. I noticed it is quieter than the Vans unit. Seems to be better in terms of grip on the runway during rollout than my original unit, which had some 600 hours on it. Super nice unit!
Part number 06-01284 accepts a 3/8" diameter axle.
This tailwheel is a solid tailwheel, meaning that it does not use a tire and tube. It is solid rubber.
This tailwheel weighs 1.57 lbs.
