Motorized/Electric Trailer Dolly

Does anyone have a recommendation for a motorized or electric trailer dolly? I need something other than the manual dolly. The manual dolly I have is challenging even for someone stronger than I am. I have a 16' deluxe Scamp and need to move it at home. Flat area no slopes. Any recommendations?

Those battery operated things aren't cheap. I know sometimes people use a front bumper mount hitch, and the riding lawn tractor idea. I assume your must be dealing with some really tight areas your moving in. Do you have a 3 wheel dolly?

No, they aren't cheap and I really hate to spend that kind of money, but I'm thinking about it. I have a 2 wheel dolly which I thought was sturdy until the arm bent when trying to turn the trailer. It worked better when I had a 13' trailer, now I have a deluxe 16 and it's difficult. Would a 3 wheel dolly be easier? Yes, I have to make a few turns and squeeze it between the house and garage to get it where I'd like it to be.

Over 40 years ago, I had a manual device I used to trun arounf my 19 foot
Airstream. It had two large metal feet with pivots and a hitch ball aboutt a foot off the ground, You used a long tube / pipe in a fitting on either pas to push doen, likft the other pas and pivot the hitch about 6 inchies at a time.

About a week ago someone on this forum was selling their battery powered one, I think $900 for an $1800 new. Can't remember who though.

Ok, I found the post, but it's sold. But here is the link so you can see what it is. Good luck. I'll eventually need one of these myself.
