Changing a Tire on a 19' Bambi

our new 19' FC is on order and will arrive within a couple of months. we are trying to get everything else we know we may need to outfit it once we receive it. Since this is a single axle trailer, I know I will need a jack if/when I need to change a tire on the road. Can any of you tell me how far under the trailer the lift point is? I'm thinking of using a floor jack that I will carry in the bed of my pickup, but I don't know if it will have sufficient reach without the handle bumping against the side of the trailer. Do I need to use a different type of jack?

Thank you all for your assistance.

On the assumption that the jacking points have not changed in the last 14 years (since ours is a 2002), there should not be a problem. I have always used a floor jack at home and have a couple of wooden blocks along on trips to make sure our car jack (Jeep Grand Cherokee) will lift high enough.

My floor jack was sold as "for SUVs" and will lift quite high, which is necessary to lift the trailer high enough if you use the jacking points along the frame.
