Not sure of the link,
but I see them at Princess Auto on sale all the time.
I have 4 here that I use every Winter to move/store my 46 Ford P/U

They work great.

I've got one like this, just to move the trailer around on the alphalt under the carport. I can do it myself.... with a little grunting and groaning!

The Trailer Goddess an I have the same Boler Stroller that Donna has shown us. EXCEPT; I/we got tired of having to re-energize the air in the tires (as in an unused wheel barrow) so I made a road trip to our local Lee Valley Tool outlet and acquired a pair of solid rubber tires (larger) to replace the (smaller) inflateable tires on our 'dolly'. Don't have to worry (anymore) about the tires rolling over on themselves when vey tight turns are made with the stroller...

Good thread, I found another one that I think looks sturdier than the trailer dolly from Harbor Frieght. I think I'll be picking this one up $40.58 less shipping.

Heavy Duty Trailer Dolly
We bought the one Donna describes yesterday from Harbor Freight, and today tried it out. Success! It makes it easier to move our trailer on its pad. Contrary to the reviews on HF, I had no trouble assembling it. It rolls well on the pad, less well crossing gravel, and effort is required. Good value at $50.

Brian, my trailer is much heavier than yours. The next time I need to replace the tires (they don't last as long as trailer tires!) I'm going to replace them with the taller, solid tires like Doug did.

Glad it's working well for you too.

If you read the description of the trailer dolly in thread #7 - it says that the weight limit is 600lbs. Seeing as few of our glassies are even under 900lbs, I guess this is just another example of 'exceeding the maximum tow capability'
Are there different weight capacity dollies?

Pam:

The way I read this the dolly only has to carry the tongue weight, which is surely less than 600 pounds. I think the limitation is tow capacity of the trailer owner. We might be okay on a flat level surface, but not on a sloped uneven surface.

We bought ours at Harbor Freight, works GREAT for moving the Scamp around the storage building.
