We tried a couple of dollies, but they could not move the R-pod on the simplest of obstructions (like a rock > .5" diameter).

trailer dolly-  wife has to help push (full disclosure)  it isnt the easiest.  i added solid tires to it, which helped a lot.  i really want one of those electric dollies, but they are pricey.  anybody have an idea to fab one from some old wheels and a 12 volt motor?  i am gonna poke around for a way to make one.

The dolly’s are heavy to carry with you and take out of truck and put back in.
The motor movers are the answer to many problems. Yes, they are expensive, but so nice to have on
Your camper when needed.
Great way to meet your camping neighbors, too.
We in the US need to push the RV Dealers here to see the advantage of selling and installing the movers.

i just need to dolly to get the trailer inside the barn where i want for storage.  i have never needed one when camping.  it would stay in the barn and get used seldomly.  2-4 times a year.
