Hand towing question

We recently bought a 16' Bambi, and were wondering if there was anything on the market available to hand-tow it short distances. Specifically, we would like to store it in our back yard, but there would be no way to drive our tow vehicle in, park the trailer, then get the vehicle back out again. Ideas?
Thanks!
Robert

You can get a motorized trailer dolly. Check your local RV dealers to see if any of them stock them.

Thumbs up Hand tow dolly

Harbor Freight sells a tow dolly that has a long handle, two wheels, and a hitch ball on a small pipe frame. Kind of like a hand truck...I use a homemade version of this contraption to put my 13' Scotty out behind my barn, and I have maneuvered my 17' Bambi II around the driveway with it as well.

It usually takes two people- for both the power to move the trailer as well as spotting to make sure you aren't going to run into things like walls or curbs, etc.

It is a handy device to have around. I use mine a lot!

Here's an example of the motorized variety:
