tow trolley or dolly

Is there anything on the market that allows you to move a 19' trailer around by hand ? I have a tight area to park our new 19' Airstream and would like to be able to maneuver it without a tow vehicle.

The good news for katpateb is both these vendors are in Calif., the first one being the closest. You could go and pick it up and save on the shipping. Temple City is just about 30 miles from Santa Monica. I grew up there .

Some people put a hitch ball on the front bumper for easier maneouvering in close quarters.

dolly

Google "Airstream trailer dolly".
This will lead you to 2 threads on the Airforums about dollies.

Hi, I was thinking about buying one of the power movers for my trailer, but never did. I have been parking my trailer for close to five years now without one, so I guess I won't need/want one.

Never used a stand alone power dolly, I have used hitches on the front of regular vehicles and on tractor drawbars. A dolly is only going to work on smooth, level ground.

We may be interested in a powered dolly. Can anyone share photos of such a tool in use with their Airstream? We've been in contact with the Power Caster folks but no one seems to have pictures/videos of it in action.

Thanks!
TK
