I have to back my 13' Burro
into its storage area in my backyard through a gate that allows about 7" to 8" clearance on either side. In the past I had no problem as I could line it up for a straight run backwards. However, a weeping willow tree that I planted a little too close to the gate has grown so large that I no longer have enough room to line up for a straight run through the gate. Backing on a curve through a tight gate is becoming more difficult as the tree takes up more and more of my space. To deal with this, I now back the trailer up to the general vicinity of the gate, unhook it from the car, put the tongue on a dolly and attach a winch to the rear bumper (with the other end of the cable attached to a 4"x4" post set in concrete) and let the winch pull the trailer backwards as I steer it with the dolly. I wouldn't need the winch if it were on pavement and flat, but it is on grass with a slight upward incline. Fortunately, pulling the trailer out through the gate is no problem!
