Mover

I have one of these which I connected to my winch battery, it’s not the fastest thing on the block (about 20 feet a minute) but will move and manoeuvre a full loaded trailer over block paving with ease. As for build quality I cannot say as I have only used it 6 times this year. Only drawbacks found so far are it is too big to leave attached whilst towing and finding the best spot to attach to trailer for maximum manoeuvrability. Got mine off that well known auction site ( 371629414181 ) and arrived from Germany in less than a week after being parted from about £160. You may find others on the site cheaper.

My own experience is that anything other than proper motor movers will be unsatisfactory for moving a heavy 4 wheel trailer over ground which is not 'levelish' and of sound surface.

Although the initial cost of 'movers' is daunting they do work very well and of course can be transferred/sold separately when you sell your current trailer.....

I'm going to have a toe in the water with a motorised Jockey wheel, if that works great and it if doesn't I'll do the full AWD 4 wheel mover thing.

Avoid TUG trailer movers. Complete waste of time and dangerous to use. Plus their customer service was simply diabolical.

Hence I bought the Powered jockey wheel which is waiting to be fitted.

My Reich Easy Driver is excellent and if you can get your trailer to move on two wheels there is no need to buy the rather expensive 4 wheel version. the 2.3 model moves my PRG trailer easily it also comes with a handy hadn held remote control.

Fitted the jockey wheel motor on Saturday and it's made the trailer far easier to handle when empty. It'll be a while before I give it a proper test but seemed ok with the few metres we moved on Saturday.
