PPL Motors has them on sale right now for $19.99.
I ordered one since I have had problems just moving the box around in the house before I can get to the shop to have it installed.

Yes, it's SHE and no my back is still the same, I've just been busy with work and removing many years of accumulated crap from our ancient Executive Motorhome and transferring what of that we might need into the TT to get on here!

There are some really great ideas here. I knew somebody would have some ideas...after all RVers have to be ingenious at times! I'll mull these over and see what I can come up with.

The Hitch Grip is definitely on my list of things to get once my bank account recovers from buying the TT!

I just received my hitch grip in the mail last night and it is a heavy duty thing.. I think I may be well pleased with it and carrying the hitch around.

It really does make a world of difference!

I bought this small moving dolly and I put the Equalizer hitch head and pins, etc. in a smaller blue box that sits on this little dolly.

That's what mine is sitting on right now. The main problem with using it in the grass or gravel is that it doesn't roll very well and if you leave in in one place in the grass very long it starts sinking! I may look into getting it some larger wheels and building a cradle for the "anvil".

I liked the idea about the "lil red wagon" but like you have to deal with grass and gravel so I wonder about one of those garden carts with bigger tires...maybe that could be modified to fit the bill!

Weighed my hitch the other day . Came in @ 131.2 pounds . Made a handle that stays on it. Handle also lets me run the trailer cord threw it . Keeps it up and from getting damaged. Its a 2 handed project to carry .

I only take mine out of the TV's receiver when I get home, parked in my asphalt driveway. While travelling I just leave it locked in the receiver. If you need to wheel the dolly around on gravel or grass you'll need larger pneumatic tires.
