Powered trailer dolly

I have a 28' Flying Cloud. Looking for information and others' experiences with power trailer dollys. I have limited space to maneuver on dirt and gravel surface. The Parkit360 looks interesting. Anyone know anything about it?

Only have experience with the 4tire Power Mover brand on relitively flat concrete surfaces at home. Without it, could not house nor two point spin our 2005 25ft Intl at home in tight parking. Beautiful device and once have taken it along on a trip expecting to need but just barely made it without using. Otherwise, like a spare tire, wish you have it when needed. Most may joke about it but it's all about the prep and aces stability of getting out of a bind.

I have a park it 360. It is the way to go for tight spots where tow vehicle swing is an issue. Trailer brakes are actually activated by the dolly so it doesn't roll down grade. I'm impressed by the quality. Because it runs on a battery or the trailer battery it is truly portable.

Nice ! Appears we both have similar 2005 25fts and wondered what your tongue and TT weights are by comparison? The 4 tire Power mover seems just fine and capable.

Our tongue is verified 750lbs by itself mostly loaded up (less the Eze lift WD using 1000lb bars). Trailer sticker 5300 dry / 6300 wet.

I use the Parkit360 dolly with my 30" Classic - really like it! Vendor and its people are solid. Do you use a special anti-sway hitch (Hensley or ProPride)?

Go Ducks!

I use a Parkit360 10K unit with the Trailer Brake controller and Battery Charger and trailer battery connection options. It was $1,550 delivered. It works great! It made my life much easier. Just go to their website or call them Very easy to work with.

parkit360.ca is the website. It is a Canadian company. The unit was well made and arrived quickly.
