I recently bought a new home that has a side entry garage. I am unable to push my 2014 Skeeter ZX 225 into the garage without swinging the front end of my Tundra off the driveway, over sprinkler heads and into my neighbor's yard. The garage will easily hold my Skeeter if I can find a way to push it in. I am considering the TX 6000 Power Dolly by TRAX Power Dolly Systems. I have read a number of mixed reviews and seen a number of videos on this electric dolly. Does anyone have any experience with the TX 6000 Power Dolly maneuvering their bass boat? I am really hoping I can find a way to get my boat in my garage and not have to store it somewhere else.
Thanks!

Yes, I have experience with them. Measure the slope of your driveway. Read the limitations of the machine clearly before you buy it, because the owner will charge you $500 to ship it back and a restocking fee. He's in Canada, so it has to go Express Freight.

Another solution that I know will work on my slope is www.djproducts.com. They go for about $6000 and will pull anything.

If you have a flat drive, check out Park 360. They are much better than the the Trax products.

Do some research and watch some videos on a front mounted receiver hitch for your truck. You can easily turn the trailer this way. See what you think of this solution

Agreed. And you have MUCH better visibility of where you are pushing the trailer.

For $6000 I would just by a little tractor and move it wherever you want.

Same issues here. Side load, irrigation, landscape, fence, etc. Hope you'll report back with whatever decision you make. Of the few I've looked at this Trax seems to be the better design at a fair price.

Ain't nothing worse than paying for storage.

I have mounted a hitch on the front of my truck to do what you are talking about. Too bad you are in San Antonio or I would come by and try it for you.

For those that havenā€™t seen a front hitch setup, this gives a great example of how maneuverable it is.
