Is there something I can use to park our Boler in a very narrow area?We are constructing a winter shelter for it but it will be very difficult to manouver it into place.I know there is a sort or dolly contraption that can be used but I have no idea what it is called or where I could purchase one.Any help would be appreciated..... Pat.

We've had several discussion about dollys, manual and powered:

Motorized puller
and
Front mount receiver hitch for the truck, - do they help?
and
Pushing a fiberglass
and
Parking in a tight spot

Hopefully you'll find something you need in one of those topics, or perhaps someone will answer up a new suggestion

Hello Pat.
No purchase necessary.
Get your Boler close as practical then get inside and take a nap in the back bed. While you are using your mass to best effect, have a friend or two pick up the hitch and put the trailer where it needs to go.

If you want to move your trailer sideways and have a solid surface below, Kevin's suggestion is a good path.

Take care,
Nolan

I have a two sets of car dollys; the problem with using them is the wheels have to be jacked up to put the dollys under the tires. I use them to move a car around and since the car doesn't run I don't mind leaving the car on them. I think it would be a pain to always need to jack up the trailer just to get it in the parking place; but, that's just my opinion.
