Today were going to be taking a look at the Rackem Trailer Dolly, Part Number RA20. Some special features about this dolly are not only that it helps you move your trailer around with ease, but it also allows you to maneuver it in tight spaces. It has the rubber grip handles to assist with pulling of the trailer. It has a 1-7/8ths inch ball which can be adjusted by height from 16 to 19 to accommodate different sized trailers. It has 13 tires which are 4 wide with a 24 distance between them. This dolly is 54 tall from the bottom of the tire to the handle and has a tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds.
Before we go outside to demonstrate our dolly, we'll show you how to adjust the height of your ball. Well remove this bolt here. As you can see the ball comes out and these holes here are where you can replace the bolt and adjust the height. Now well demonstrate how this dolly works. Well roll it to our boat trailer here and lower the coupler onto the ball. Once its secured well pull it out to our desired location.
Its that easy. There you have it for the Rackem Trailer Dolly, Part Number RA20. .

Very Fast Shipping ,Trailer Dolly works very good on a 6x10 trailer. 64799

Was easy to assemble and looks like good quality workmanship. I've used it twice over the weekend to move my boat from the side of the driveway. So far this dolly has made the job much easier then pushing or pulling the boat and trailer with the small jack wheel wanting to turn direction all the time. It's a tight fit between my house and fence but this dolly makes it easy to move and position the boat. I believe the large wheels on the dolly is the key. 51640

saves from going to the doctor angle it under the hitch mount lift up and you are on the go. i use it to manuver my 5 x 8 v nose enclosed trailer in around tight spots to give my suv a break. i do not have my trailer overloaded so it works fine for my needs. 3240
I got this to move my 6x12 enclosed Haulmark trailer around...with some custom cabinets built into the front, the tongue weight is around 300lbs empty, and can push 400lbs when loaded with gear, dirt bikes, etc. Occasionally I need to move the empty trailer, and having to hook the truck up to do that was a PITA, and no way do I want to blow out my back and bang up my knees trying to lift and move it myself...I'm a big strong guy and there is no way to gain proper leverage without this dolly - it works great and will save me a lot of hassle/strain from now on! My only complaint is the handle should be twice as wide - it's too narrow.38590

Assembly was a bit tough because some of the holes in the frame did not line up. But once we got the dolly assembled it worked like a champ. We have a 1982 23' Kit trailer that I estimate weighs over 5000 lbs. The older trailers weigh more and I estimate the tongue weight is 500 or more. A rule of thumb is tongue weight is one-tenth of gross vehicle weight. I had trepidation that the dolly would not budge the trailer or worse, break because of the weight. I was pleasantly surprised. I can easily push the trailer by myself on a flat concrete surface because the dolly's oversize tires and sturdy frame.26888

Product arried promptly and was easy to put together It is exacly as promised, very rugged construction, and should wortk will for my application (manuevering a boat with a2500# gvw in tight quarters.)107359

Extremely sturdy and well made. I was surprised at the quality for its relatively attractive price. Assembly is straight forward and took only minutes. Large tires are a plus for moving over gravel or uneven ground. I will be using this to move several different boats on trailers: a Whaler Montauk 170, a 14 foot New England catboat, and a 10 foot dory. Highly recommended. Should also note that etrailer.com was exceptionally attentive to email questions. 106569

I can't believe how much easier it is to move my 1600 pound sailboat and trailer around my driveway! This leverage and steering control makes all the difference, since I always move the boat myself. I did not rate the product excellent because assembly was problematic. The main problem is the axle fits way too tightly into the wheels, so that when assembling I had to hammer it home from both sides. It ultimately worked, but a real pain.100764

I let my friend purchase a half interest in the Rack'em Trailer Dolly. She loves it so much that I have to borrow it back when I need to use it! It makes life real easy when I need to slip my camper into its tight quarters. My friend uses it to pull her camper out of her garage with no problems.100387
by: Clifton K.09/05/2013
had the dolly put together, tires aired up and rolling in under 15 minutes. I was a little concerned about it moving my 5x12 tandem axle trailer, but it moved the trailer with surprising ease!!!! even around my uneven rock driveway. this is my first dolly so I have no comparison, but I feel it's worth the extra money, this feels very well built and heavy duty. 98448

Yes, I received the trailer dolly, an I'm pleased with it. It was easy to assemble, seems sturdy, has relatively large pneumatic tires, and makes it much easier to move my medium-sized utility trailer. 84027

The package arrived on time and the dolly was easy to assemble. It is as advertised - excellent material and workmanship. My boat is still on order so I haven't been able to try it out yet. I feel sure that this dolly will help in moving my boat in the garage. Etrailer provided a good buying experience and I look forward to using their product. Roll Tide, from Bob in North Georgia.77820
The quality of the hardware and the tires is very good. This is used to steer a 24' pontoon into a tight spot for storage. The heavy duty construction pulls the boat with no problem on our blacktop driveway.75830

It was easy enough to put together though the instructions were a little lacking. Having this did make putting my new pop-up camper in my 3rd car garage much easier than backing it in. There is no way I could have navigated the 3" clearance on each side, front, and back by backing it in or lifting the hitch myself. My camper is heavy (2,700lbs GVWR, 280lbs tongue weight) and I did struggle a little with an uneven driveway (dips in blacktop), but that's not the fault of the dolly - just keep these types of things in mind when considering this dolly for your trailer. On flat/level pavement I was able to move around without any issues and the dolly felt sturdy.69015
Even though at this time I have not used the RA20 dolly yet, I was pleased with how easy it was to assemble. It appears to be a very sturdy unit. Once the snow melts I'll be putting it to use. My only complaint so far is the 2 month delay in shipping the dolly to me.64862
by: Bruce M.11/20/2012
Received in a timely manner, easily put together with included hardware. I find this product to be of much higher quality and usefulness than I had thought it might be, primarily from reviews from other devices. Very excellent and solid: easily moves my SeaRay 17.5 foot on its single axle trailer (about 2700 lbs, 200 lbs tongue weight), my SeaDoo trailer, and my enclosed utility trailer (1200 lbs, with 200 lb tongue weight.) I am very satisfied and glad I made the purchase.59840

Very easy to put together, took 5 mins. Moved my 14 ft john boat on trailer from back yard to patio and then to drive way with ease. MUCH easier than lifting the trailer by hand and straining my back pulling it and pushing it, esp on the grass (I'm 6 ft, 210 and fairly strong and it used to take all I had to lift trailer by hand and maneuver and usually had to sit trailer down couple times when moving it from back yard to driveway, no longer an issue). Did a lot of research on trailer dollies and main complaint I saw was wheels and tires getting bent and losing air, esp during turns; didn't experience any of that and was a breeze to make turns (even sharp turns when getting it to line up exactly as I wanted). Easy to operate, just hold upright and lean backward to catch the trailer ball and then move, even balances so you don't have to hold it the whole time (was surprised by this). All in all, very satisfied and glad I did the research and found the right product. Still fairly new but so far, so good. Will update if have any issues as time goes on but don't foresee that happening. Would def recommend this product. Lightning fast delivery from etrailer btw; had it within 2 1/2 days of ordering and customer service did a great job of following up. This was my first order from etrailer but will order all trailer products from them moving forward. 58402

I am impress with the quality of the product. I researched the product thoroughly before buying, in fact, I thought I had found the right one at my local store, but it was too low for my trailer. Therefore, search no further, this product RA20 is the best I found. I particularly like the ajustable height of the ball and the large 4x13 inches wheels. In addition, if you buy from e-Trailer you will surely be pleased with their customer approach.55363

Product is very stout and well finished.I can definitely recommend to others.I use it to move a tandem axle motorcycle trailer in my driveway.One person can move it when empty as long as the turns aren't too abrupt. This side loads the tires and requires a second person to push sideways to turn it. Gradual turns are no problem.40965
by: Alan C.03/22/2012
Very nice product, I purchased a 5x8 enclosed trailer with a weight of 1250lbs. This moves it around on pavement with ease, moving it through soft grass is tough, but thats not the products fault. Its tough to get good foot grip in the grass. I'm sure on hard packed gravel it would be fine. The only problem with the directions is they're lacking some detail. Very simple to put together, 17mm wrench and a pair of pliers to bend a cotter pin is all that is needed..34822

had trouble lining up holes for the support after the other bolts were tightened. After some tinkering got it to line up.52487
