Has anyone ever replaced the hard rubber trailer jack wheel with a similar size air filled wheel?

I was thinking that this may make the trailer easier to move around be hand.

Mike, I have not seen this.

I would love to see something to help this as well. I have to lower the new boat all the way down to get it into the garage.


Have you ever seen or tried one of these?

Those are nice but I want to move it around by hand so I think an air filed wheel and tire would help.

An air filled tire will help if your in the grass or dirt, on a hard surface the solid wheel will be best bet.

I just have one of these and it works fairly well, especially if you have someone else pushing along with you. It is even easier if you have a single axle trailer.

I can't remember where I got mine since it was several years ago, but I found this one here: http://www.overtons.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?pdesc=Deluxe_Trailer_Dolly&r=view&merchID=1001&i=74903

You don't want air filled, but Harbor Freight and Northern Industries sell them. They also sell hard rubber, plastic and other kinds.

Always wondered if these hydraulic wheel dollies were any good:confused:

On a level surface, they're good, just like the two wheeled dolly from Overton's. Using the crank on the jack stand works well on single axle but at best, it's like leading a bull by the nose.
