I'm gonna need to buy one very soon & fear buying one not big enough for the trailer I have not bought yet?
I'm thinking maybe get one that can handle more than I suspect I'll need to cover my butt, But of course that cost more.

I'd prefer used to save money, but realize I might have to buy new. [emoticon]

Hasn't changed since your FIRST THREAD you posted about "used" ones.

HERE

No need to start a new thread on the same subject, you could have just posted an "update" to your old thread.

Let’s review! You need a trailer dolly for the trailer you have not yet purchased...so you can’t buy the dolly yet for fear it won’t move the trailer...you haven’t yet purchased. Buy the HD43567 model..second generation.

Still trying to find a Electric power dolly strong enough I think for close to 10K lbs trailer, Not that I'll need that but being I'm buying the dolly before the buying the trailer I figure it better to be over kill than barely enough.

What have you found the best for your needs?

Once I get my dolly I'll start test fitting various sized trailers to see what I can actually buy.

Interesting way to choose a trailer.

I can't envision a dolly having enough power to move a 10k trailer.

I still can't see how it's going to be possible to move a long long trailer around in your yard, where you said in your other thread that there's a 90 degree turn shown here:

I basically have a 90 degree turn I need to make & the neighbors fence is directly across from my driveway.

They sell some that claim to be able to move more.
The trailer will likely not weigh any more than 8K lbs.
