Howdy. Up in RR area. I am considering driveway mods. Maybe you can too. I'd put AS drive on other side. Or widen existing and make gate double to open when you need to move the AS.

Peace and Blessings..

Yes, winching is a "one-way" street until you move the winch. How much of a PITA this really is depends on how often you move the trailer.

Thanks for all of the feedback, folks.

I think the motorized dolly is the only way to go if I want to do this, for me at least.

While a winch might get me there cheaper, the thought of having to do any hard labor in August combined with the challenge of getting the AS back down the driveway seems like a deal breaker.

CWF - I can't put a small driveway on the other side. I've got an amazing cottonwood tree right there.

Once I decide what to do, I'll let y'all know. Until then, it will stay in the covered storage that I pay a pretty penny for.

Thanks for all of your input.

I would most likely put the money in raising the carport and back the trailer in

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

A tree notorious for attracting lightning. Brittle wood, branch drop, etc. Cottonwoods: not ever near a dwelling. Consult an arborist and talk with your insurance agent.

Looks like your problem now has a solution.
