Swing tongue help.

I need to order a swing tongue for my trailer. I have made a mistake and ordered a 3x3 instead of a 3x4. When I measure the front of my tongue it measure 3 3/8x4". Will the standard 3x4 Fulton kit work for this. Here are a few pics.
Please help!!! Thanks.

Not sure what you are asking but I think you are wondering if the brake/hitch mechanism will fit in a 3x3 vs the 3x4? Im guessing it won't because those components are designed to fit perfect inside that tube. I replaced one this year and am recently familiar

I want the housing to stay the same but I'm adding a fold away tongue. My tubing at the front of the trailer is 3 3/8x4 inches. Will a 3x4 inch swing tongue from Fulton fit this?

I added a swing away tongue to my '94 trailer last summer and went through the same debate that you're having. My trailer looks the same as yours. I never had one of the Fulton swing away adapters in my hand to confirm, but after talking with companies over the phone I decided that it would not fit. Extreme trailers is the company that I went with for my project. I'll try to post a pic shortly. Tony Ramirez was the person at extreme trailers I corresponded with. It took a couple weeks for them to ship the part to me, but I am happy.

I had a local guy cut off my old tongue and weld on the new one.

I think the issue you're having with the tubing relates to the the section you're measuring which is the UFP actuator housing. In order to make the trailer as compact as possible the actuator housing was welded directly to the frame at the point where the main tubes meeting. That why neither kit will work.

Magoo has the that same solution only fabed up with a swing mount that will need to be welded to the frame. That is a nice piece of work there and would be the direction I would go if I were doing this job.

That's guys. Magoo that is what I was looking for. I'm afraid that I will not like the cost of this but this maybe what has to be done. Thanks so much for the help.
