Parkit360 Trailer Dollies

Any experience with this brand of trailer dolly? Looking at the Parkit360 unit that is advertised to be effective with trailers up to 10,000 lbs. I have a ProPride hitch installed. The Parkit360 vendor's tech rep has told me that the Parkit360 unit can connect directly to the trailer's retracted hitch stand leg. Any thoughts will be appreciated. Thanks.

My brother in law got one. When using the jack leg for the pivot point, there isn't enough clearance, to the handle/motor for a hensley head to swing. I suspect PP is the same.

I use a parkit 360 with a classic 30' and a hensley hitch. I made a receiver adapter for the parkit 360 and hitch it up as if I were hooking up to the back of my truck. Works great. I can send pictures it you like.

Yes, please. I told my Bro that we could fab one up, but why reinvent the wheel? I list of brands and parts would be helpful as well.I assume you are using the HAHA stinger box to attach your adapter? How are you holding the head in place to prevent swinging?

I keep my trailer in a storage garage a few miles from my house. I will take a few pictures this afternoon. The adapter is a 2" receiver welded on top of round stock. I do use the stinger hook up. Raising the hensley jacks levels the parkit 360 and removes the head play. The head will pivot to the side but hasn't interfered with my ability to back it up.

I have seen folks use a rod in the little "lock lever" slot between the upper head and lower head....as well as 2 pair of vice grips on the lower head, "capturing" the top head in place between them.

The adapter is a 12" receiver purchased from Amazon. The round stock is 2" OD x 7" long with .25" wall purchased from speedymetals.com. I had a local shop weld the pieces with the addition of the 2" gusset added by them. He charged me $20.

Do you have to put pressure on the jacks?

For my setup I raise the hensley jacks to the first indicator notch
