Rob:
This is an interesting concept for a manually operated caravan mover. I use what is called a Powercaster here (plug-in electrically powered).
I think this might work well IF you use it on a level, hard surface. Like my powered one it might not work if the slope of the "driveway" or pad is too much and the tongue weight % of the caravan is too low. Otherwise it looks like a nice unit.

For that you would need the Self-Propelled Caravan

Children, don't try this at home.....

Oh THATS funny!

Sorry, Rob.. we hijacked your thread..

I wouldn't mind having one of those things. I am considering storing my trailer, and have found an inexpensive storage facilty near my house. He packs them in tight tho.. makes me nervous.

Good one, Andrew!
(back to our regularly scheduled thread).......Rob, something on the order of the European caravan movers, Google "Truma," for instance, would be an excellent way of moving a trailer into tight and difficult spaces as well as making adjustments in a campground. Since the driving wheels are the main wheels there is no issue of not enough traction.
Expensive, but the added weight is less than I would have thought.
