Moving a 13 Burro by hand

I have an 83, 13’ Burro.
It seems too heavy to even scoot around by hand. I seemed to be able to do it easily with my old, 78, scamp.
Recently , on a narrow dirt road, going nowhere, I wondered how I was going to turn around. Finally found a place.
Any of you Burro owners have some ideas/tricks for turning around by hand?

Get one of those trailer dollys if you have room to carry it with you. It's basically 2 wheels, a ball, and a handle. Available lots of places and at various prices depending on quality.

Been there, done that with my 14 foot Scamper. I had a wheel attachment on the tongue jack and four pieces of 6x6 about a foot long to use as wheel chocks. I chocked the wheels on goth sides and disconnected the trailer from the tug and let it rest on the wheel under the tongue jack. Remove the chocks from the right side and push the tongue to the left or remove the chocks from the left side and push the tongue to the right. The chocked wheels act as a fulcrum and the tongue is the lever. This provides sufficient torque to move the front of the unit on the tongue jack wheel. The trailer pivots on the chocked wheels. You can also alternate chock placement to move the unit backwards or forwards for better placement. The chocks are easy to make and easy to carry.

I was having the same thoughts, but you said it for me.
