Just get some Go Jacks, and slide them under the trailer's tires. They each have 4 heavy duty casters that will pivot in any direction. Between them and a wheel on the tongue jack, you should be able to pivot and move your trailer anywhere reasonable.
Thanks for the help everyone! The problem is that I have a very steep driveway. Backing it up means I almost break my transmission due to numerous stops up the hill (I seriously need a backup camera) I like the go jack idea. Thanks everyone.

Why not put a receiver hitch on the FRONT of your tow vehicle. Then put a trailer ball on the front of the TV and back the trailer up your driveway with the tow vehicle going forward. Then you can see exactly where you and the trailer are going, and you don't need to leave room to extract the tow vehicle from behind the trailer after it's parked.
No way I would want to fool with a 29' trailer by hand or with a lawn tractor. I had a boat trailer roll down a slight incline when I was moving it one day and that was enough for me. Have not seen your situation, but I would take the WD bars off and try to back it. Or go with a front mounted hitch for parking.
