Our whiffletrees are modeled off of the original Coleman parts, and work just as well but there are a couple of differences:
- The threading of rod is a little finer than the original so it will take more turns of the crank handle to raise the roof.
- Also because of the finer threading, the weight of the roof alone will not cause the lift system to unwind automatically. This means that you will have to crank the system down just like you cranked it up. It also makes the ratchet/clutch system unnecessary so if yours is malfunctioning, using this whiffletree will resolve it.
As I mentioned earlier, our whiffletrees have been tested and proven to operate just as well as the Coleman originals, so you can order with confidence!
***Please be sure to remove the old rod before measuring it and include the overall length of your existing rod with your order***
