We have a (small) trailer that I park in our (heated) garage for winter storage. I have only one inch front/back to spare and parking it at the end of the season tight against the wall so that I can park my car next to it is really slow as it has to go behind a wall.
This year I decided to make a dolly that would help with parking it. Used the wheels off an old snow blower, some metal/bolts, plus a winch and sprockets. I tested it and I was pleasantly surprised how well it works. So I can park it solo very quickly.
I know there are commercial ones but it cost me about $120CAD in parts plus my labor.

Nice! What a great way to reuse old parts of "this and that" to make something completely different, and useful. Truly, necessity is the mother of invention!

Even the cheapest power dolly from Amazon costs $1000+ and most more than that!
