I am a one banger then!!!!

I could push my 13 around. Of course, it would take me 2 weeks to recover....

Use your riding lawnmore. Lawnmower wont be carying any weight, it only push/pulls the trailer since its tounge wheel(s) will be down.

you might want to install a second wheeled trailer tounge jack.... or install a jack much more heavy duty than your trailer requires. This way it will be less prone to break as you jocky it around.

Go to your local welder and have him weld you up a frame on your riding lawn mower with say a female reciver tube on it. Then have the welder make you a push bar AKA a longer; (3feet), male reciver tube and mount a ball onto it.

Hook up the two together and push the trailer around to your hearts content.

Has anyone on the forum used the EZ Tug? Unfortunately, using the "biochemical" powered tow dolly is getting to be a real pain.... both figuratively and literally. Moving the trailer on the driveway is easy, but moving it into its little sideyard parking pad paved in turf blocks involves a sharp corner, a slight uphill entrance, and having to manage this while avoiding the garage overhang and the tree branches. This can be a challenge....

We found the EZ Tug on sale at garage-toys.com this month (Father's Day special...) for $100.00 off, plus a "mystery" per centage off when you submit your order. Looks like it would do the job, but we'd love to hear from anyone who has one before we order....

Thanks!
Sherry

Look close at the spec's. I'm almost positive I looked into this one for my 17' Casita which I need to take over some grassy area and the manufacturer said it wouldn't be enough power.
Been awhile so check it out. Let us know if you get and your comments.

The Powrtouch is about the slickest unit I have seen for moving trailers. It stays attached to the trailer and uses the trailer battery for power. I have also seen it demonstrated with a heavy duty 12v connection and extension cord to the tow vehicle also.

These units are quite easily moved from 1 trailer to the next.
