Abstract : The invention herein pertains to a landing gear or stabilizer for a single-axle trailer typically pulled by a passenger car, light truck or all-purpose purpose military vehicle such as the US Army's High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). These trailers commonly haul a variety of small loads, such as snowmobiles, camping equipment, household goods or the military cargo normally carried by the US Army's XM1071 cargo trailer. When these trailers are unhitched from the tow vehicle to free it for non-towing duties, they are frequently supported in their horizontal, free standing positions by retractable legs or feet connected to the front of the trailer.
