I plan to store my trailer in the garage behind a single door. It looks like it's going to be a tight fit with a few inches along each side. I know I can't be that precise backing it in with a vehicle. I just just looking at trailer dollies on line. Anyone have experience with these? The are listed by weight. I assume that's tongue weight?

Thanks
Rick

Rick, we have a Harbor Freight Trailer Dolly and use it to spin our Retro 150 180 degrees around in order to use the truck to back it into position in our parking area. That is the only way we can park the trailer after pulling it up our steep 180 yard long driveway. We have a relatively flat area at the top, in front of the barn style garage. We can't get it in our garage, so we park it along side. This dolly should handle the 150, 155 and 155XL trailers fairly well. You will still have to muscle it into your garage, especially if you have to push it up and over a 'lip' or rise of some sort.

I was also considering one.  Here is a picture of our trailer in the garage.  It is pretty tight backing it in.

I picked one up yesterday at Northern tool. It has the flat free tires and is on sale from $99 to $79. I don't have my retro yet, but it move my trailer with 2 wave runners around pretty easily. I would it weighs near if not over 2000 lbs.

Well my goodness, your Retro just looks right at home in your garage. Don't let it get too comfortable in there though!!

Glad to hear that your dolly works well for you. We orginally bought ours to move our 6 wide tear drop trailer around. It continues to do a good job with the Retro too! Are you waiting on delivery of your new trailer? Be sure to tell those wave runners to play nice and share their time with the new Retro!

Dolly woes! WE originally bought the one from Harbor Freight...HORRID! Wheels collasped when trying to rotate the trailer!
Bought "a recommended one" from E-trailer...ditto! Same problem, now out about $200+.
Finally took the tires off a refrigerator dolly and put them on the frame from E-Trailer....The hard rubber tires seemed to do the trick!

Well we did it - bought our first travel trailer - the 189. We're thrilled, but looking for a way to park it in spaces too tight for the tow vehicle to maneuver. I saw this thread about dollies and wondered what you think about this one from Position It 360. https://parkit360.ca/collections/trailer-dollies/products/electric-trailer-dolly-base-version?variant=9432066821
It's pricey - is it more than we need for a 189?
