Harbor Freight, and most auto supply stores, have similar items:
Search results for: 'car dolly'

BUT... Personally, I wouldn't be too keen about resting the weight of the trailer on the brake drums. They weren't designed to be load carrying.

A while back there was a pic from a member that made plywood disks slightly larger than the brake drums and bolted those on with the wheel lug nuts to prevent pressure on the drums.

Bob, thanks for the link, I'm going to see if that will get my Scamp low enough to get it into the garage.

If your asking about the car dollies they are a standard item. Here's a pair at Harbor Freight.
Vehicle Dollies - 2 Piece, 1500 Lb. Capacity

Arne has put some 2x4's on them to keep the trailer on them.

Sorry to respond late.
The dollies are custom. However Princess Auto sells very similar and are the same height off the floor. I found the hubs rotated in the dolly when moving the Boler. In the picture I placed a 2x4 in front and back of the hub to minimise rotation and to stabilise I placed a 2x4 under the bolts and in back. Bungee it to the dolly and its secure. I have about 3" clearance under a 7' door. I do not have a ceiling vent in yet.
This dolly setup sure makes it easy to manoeuvre the Boler in the garage. I use a hitch dolly to pull the Boler.
