What is the cost of the Traxx dolly? Their site seems to indicate that there is only one model available for $1750.00.
Thanks,
Ken

I really like the fact that I'm not tethered to shore power. Where the trailer goes, so goes my power supply. I did opt for the longer connection cable. I'll try to post a pic of the drive, slope and final parked location. Not possible at all with a tow vehicle, no matter how good you may be.
I don't mean to bother you, but I wonder if you would still consider taking this photo, as I have a small grade on my property too and I am wondering how this dolly might work for me. Thank you for considering.

parkit360 BIG Waste of $ and time for me.

I ordered the parkit 360 force 10K (P360 HD B3) to maneuver my 2016 27' International Serenity in and out of our back parking spot (off our alley). I have a gravel lot so they told me I would need the Force 10K with the wider tires and that it would work but of course was more $ ($1730.00). My lot only has a slight grade. Well, my wife and I were pretty excited when it showed up until I tried it out. Every time I tried to push it back in place, the tires just slipped and bogged down in the gravel and the unit just pivoted into the gravel. I called customer service and they said I didn't have it hooked up properly so I tried it again (actually 4 times..) and finally video taped it not working and sent it to Jim (at customer service) to show him that I was in fact hooking it up properly. Jim, then wanted me to get additional jacks to set up under the airstream and hook up to the main front Jack instead of the hitch. I said I am not comfortable with that and that your company told me it would work the normal way. Long story short, they refunded me my money except for a $250.00 restocking fee! I told them that I would understand their fee if I decided I didn't want it or need it or changed my mind, but it was unfair for them to sell this to me (the more expensive one) saying it would work for my situation and then when it did not work as advertised charge me $250.00 to take it back. Not too mention the HUGE waste of time and hassle I have been through. I would never deal with this company again and now will fight it through my credit card company. Buyer Beware. I will try to post my video clip of the event soon.

Thanks, I am in the market for one and will steer clear of the parkit360. Its ok it didn't work, but no way they should whack you $250. Totally unfair.

I bought one and the unit just dug a nice hole in the gravel driveway. Waste of money. I suspect it will work on level pavement but not gravel with a slight slope.

I've had mine now for several years. Up very slight grade, down very slight grade, overall still very pleased with it. Finally broke down and stopped trying to use the hitch ball the sent, I just tug it around with the power hitch jack foot.

Love the integrated brake controller. Really does work well overall. I think I paid around $1500

i went to the parkit360 factory and saw their operation.
I got the 5k model with fatter wider tires, the same price as the skinny tires.

They suggest fat tires if your trailer weight is a fraction on the dolly capacity. if you are close, go with skinnier tires.

why, the lighter tongue needs more surface area for traction

here is a video off their site

https://youtu.be/WFIr-9mBVks

note to use it on a hill, grass or sand, we also use a 2 foot by 4 foot piece of chipboard underneath. this is so the wheels dont sink it.. we got ours at a big box store and it has plastic crosshatch underneath ie meant for basement flooring or atop cement

this is needed for any type of mover

Hi, my new house is just as hard if not harder to back my trailer in place because I can't back straight in. Now with white painted lines and a back up camera on my trailer. I'm able to park it without any assistance from my wife. I think I'll adapt a small snow plow on the front of my Power Mover. Or maybe sell it?????
