Barker 3500. Excellent service from it for about 5 years now.

Since my trailers are small, I like to bolt on a side mount swing-away jack. They really reduce the amount of cranking, since the wheel is almost on the ground when I swing it up or back down.

I replaced a 2500 lb. jack with a 3500 lb. model. Don't skimp on the capacity since you are usually lifting both the front of the RV and the back of the TV.

I'll second this. Toy Haulers are heavy, buy the largest one you can find.
