Bottle Jack size

I have a 2015 Crossroads Cruiser 35'. What size bottle jack would be good to have along in the event I need to jack up the rig for flats or maintenance on bearings etc, I have an 8 ton. Is that enough?

I have a 12 ton bottle jack. Might be an over kill but I’d rather have to much than not enough. I also carry a couple pressure treated blocks cut from a 6x6 post. In case I need extra height or if I have to use the jack on soft ground.

I have a 4 ton... works fine. You are not jacking up the whole weight...also add leveling blocks under axle like a safety stand.
