Any wheel on a dolly under the tongue has this problem to some extent, since it must be small to fit under the tongue and carries only a few percent of the trailer weight for traction. This is why "caravan movers" in Europe - where it seems more common to move trailers into tight spaces without the tow vehicle - work by driving the main wheels of the trailer.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
