Tongue jack caster / wheel help needed

1. If I put a tongue jack caster / wheel on the tongue jack would a couple of people be able to push around a 24' trailer on flat concrete?

2. If it can be moved without having a truck does anyone know what might be standard size tongue jack? I assume there might be a couple of different sizes available depending on trailer weight?

I seriously doubt that a couple of people could move a 24' TT more than a couple of inches side to side even on flat smooth concrete.

You could invest in a powered tow dolly if you really need to move it without a tow vehicle.

I agree that it's very unlikely that a couple people will be able to move a 24' TT that way. It's also not advisable to do so because it would put a lot of stress on the jack. It would be OK with a popup though.

My first choice would be a powered tow dolly. I don't know if a manual one would work. I'd definitely want something with a brake for that size of trailer. Just make sure it has the right weight capacity rating.
