Use a Harbor Freight manual trailer dolly with 1 7/8" ball & pneumatic tires to move a 1900lb boat & 1500lb TT on concrete. Both are single axle, set up for 2" ball, and the dolly handles both easily on a slight grade. Have not tried moving either off of concrete. It was a good $50 investment.

Check out my earlier post - Parkit360

We have a Parkit360 and use it on a concrete drive with a slight grade… works fantastic. Expensive for the number of times we use it per year, but it's the only way we could maneuver the trailer into our pad site.

Hope you do do well with whatever solution you use.

Depends if your tow vehicle remains level after hooking up. If not then I'd recommend the Andersen w/d anti-sway hitch. I used one to tow my Escape 19 with my FJ Cruiser, sold the Escape and hitch and ordered a new 21' Escape, ordered another Andersen to use with the FJC.

Welcome, Paul!

You might want to start a new topic describing this specific proposed combination, as people who have the answers are more likely to notice it, than buried in this topic about moving trailers with a dolly.
