need to replace the wheel...are there jacking points?

we recently purchased a 1960 traveler. in the process of towing her home, we discovered that 4 of the 6 lug nuts had come off
to make a long (and scary) story short, the remainder of our trailer's voyage home was on the back of a flat bed tow truck. however, the stems had gouged the holes in the wheel and now the stems are badly damaged. so. we need to jack up the trailer, replace the bad stems and replace the wheel.

the question is: are there jacking points on this trailer? we have been advised on another thread to jack it up on the chassis. but do we need to remove the belly pan to do this? any advice? also, how difficult is it to replace stems?

the lesson learned is: if you aren't the last person to replace the wheel, check to make sure the lug nuts are tight. our first purchase: a lug wrench.

thanks for any tips,
lucky newbies in seattle

Re: jacking points

Very fortunate that you discovered the missing lug nuts before any major mishap.
Some good info on jacking points can be found on :
