power trailer mover
 
I have to park my airstream in the back yard. Man it sure looks good out there but the problem is that I am having a problem with the tail end dragging the driveway on the way up the drive. I put a hitch monut on the front of my truck and it works pretty well with someone directing(usually the wife). anybody have any ideas on how to back it up with out dragging. Thought about putting some casters on the back but then rethought might not be good for the frame. thought about a power mover but need to adjust the height of the front to increase the back height while moving up and then when get to a certain point need to raise front to keep the front from dragging. You can get the picture. I know there has to be someone else with the same problem. Thanks for the help.

Maybe a residence with a flat driveway would be the easiest solution.

Get yourself a tractor. You can use the lift to lower the hitch until it's just about touching the ground.

thanks
 
Thank you eubank. I like that idea. I was already leaning in that direction. Is that what you use to move your camper now?

My grandpa had a hitch rigged up on an old farmall tractor on the two bottom arms of a 3 point hitch which could raise it up or down. Might be easier than doing it with the loader as the trailers weight would try to lift the drive wheels reducing traction going up the hill.

I love the pic. That is a great idea. I have been looking for a used tractor. Looks like they run 2-5k. looks like a great way to get my rig around and up that darn driveway without the bottom scrapping. Which would make the wifey really happy. LOL.
