I think I may have just found the answer hidden in my parent's basement. Never been used. Just need to cut off the hinge that held the now discarded lid a little, build a "shelf" about an inch high that will put it at almost the exact height it needs to be to slide right into the receiver.

I have basement room galore at home, and there is just enough room under the TT right behind the front jack if I want to take it out on the road. If I want to move it long distances there's always the front end loader on the tractor!

I posted in another thread my solution for moving the hitch around at home.

I made an Equalizer Hitch Lift and Dolly

This could work at the campground if you used bigger wheels/casters perhaps.

Please take a look at EzStorHitch Trailer Weight Distribution Hitch Storage Device as an option to store the hitch.

Check out a transmission jack. It's made for removing a car transmission and rolling it out from under the car.

Use the 450lb Low Lift Transmission jack

Harbor freight has a 450lb low transmission jack for $99.99. It can raise up to you hitch level and with casters, roll up and in to your receiver. Same thing removing and storing. $100.00 cheaper than back surgery! plus should you stop RVing, you can sell very quickly. Good Luck.
