Bolt on jack for open utility trailer

I'm in the market for an aluminum trailer to haul my motorcycle and found one I like at a nearby dealer. My only gripe is that it has a bolt-on swivel jack, which is attached to the side rail. I don't want or need a swivel jack and am trying to determine if this trailer can be fitted with a fixed jack (not sure what you call it) right behind the tongue. Do they make bolt-on jacks without a wheel that can mount where I want?

Tractor Supply has bolt-on trailer jacks with a skid plate rather than a wheel.

You may not need a folding tongue jack but why do you want to remove what's there? It's a light duty trailer so almost any tongue jack will have enough capacity for the job.

If you move that jack or install a different one make sure you check it's location with your truck's tailgate. Putting a jack closer to the hitch definitely puts it in range of hitting the tailgate depending on the height of your truck.
