View Full Version : 2003 trailer tongue
07-23-2012, 03:33 PM
Anybody know where I can get a new swivel trailer tongue actuator or the whole swivel assembly for a 2003 205V (same as X/2 that year) trailer? Actuator went bad and the company that made the actuator is out of business - surely there are enough of these out there that somebody is still making these. I can live with the whole internal actuator assembly or if I had to, the whole swivel, but I bet those are 43K plus tax.

I had mine replaced from the swivel assembly forward with a UFP. With minimal modification it will fit after cutting the old one off leaving the hinge assembly in tact. After the fact I was told by the past MC dealer that a titan master cylinder has the same four bolt pattern as reliable and will fit with some minimal grinding of the cap threads on the tounge. Don't know if you can get other parts for the actuator like the shock, etc. a quick google shows it has the correct look. Titan also makes bolt on calipers that work. That's what replaced my old locked up calipers.

Not trying to hijack or peddle my wares. I loped off my Titan actuator to replace with a 2 5/16" UFP. If the Titan guts fit a Reliable, then let's talk. My Titan needs a new master cylinder (around $50 for eTrailer, if I remember). Has a brand new shock in it, however. Just would like to get $20 out of it to partially cover the new shock I installed before I switched gears and went 2 5/16".
