Skid Wheels on a 25' 1985 Sovereign

Hey All,

Just moved in to a new home and the drive way is steep up to a proposed parking pad. The skid wheels should work to make the initial push but I am concerned that the frame may not support the weight of the trailer briefly while on the skid wheels.

Anyone have any info or cautionary tales?

thanks for the advice.

DON't.

If you add skid wheels, the first time they hit the pasvement, your will damage one or both of the rear quarter panels.

Slant the driveway, or drop off the trailer and push it up the driveway by adding a hitch receiver and ball mount, to the front of your tow vehicle.

In that way, being careful, the rear end won't hit the pavement.
