Thanks for the idea Malcom! Great minds think alike! =)
I tried that very same trailer dolly and it didn't work well for my
After much research, I've decided on the powertouch
) motors that
engage the wheels on the trailer to move through tight spaces where
the trailer has to be positioned for storage. The big reason for
getting the power touch instead of any of the other powered dollies,
is it's ability to move the trailer over grass and soft ground. The
problem to solve with this set up is keeping the tongue
from "plowing" the soft ground underneath.
I believe a (hitch post mounted) set of pneumatic jockey wheels will
do the trick. I'm willing to have it designed and manufactured for my
use (within a resonable cost). Specifically, i'm lookng for
something with a swiveling post that i can slide onto the electric
hitch post (preferably while the car is hitched). The twin wheels
will give me the needed clearance (lower attachment point) and better
stability (two wheels in stead of one) when traveling across the
grass (with sugar sand underneath) on my side yard. (An active)
hurricane season is coming and i need to be able to manuver the
trailer easily (by myself) over soft/wet ground to the "safe space" i
created on my side yard.
Below are (rough) drawings of what i'm looking to do along with a photo of my (very) crowded tongue.
Anyone have have a recommendation of who could design and make
something like this to carry the tongue weight of my trailer?
