arrived in a timely manor,assembly was easy,used it twice to move a 18.5 foot aluminum bass boat in and out of garage and across gravel driveway,moved boat very easily,would be nice if tires/axle assembly were a bit wider,but very happy over all 492730

I browsed through several web sites, but etrailer had the best organization and the most information. I had just purchased a small 4' x 6' 2000 lb. trailer that I use for picking up machinery for the shop. I needed a good dolly to maneuver the trailer to the chain hoist and chose the RA20. I ordered it on Thursday and it was delivered Friday, outstanding service. The dolly is well made with good wheels, assembled in 15 minutes and went to work. A nice piece of machinery if used within its specifications. Well pleased. 207773

Fantastic. Bought this to be able to maneuver my boat into a side entry garage. Works fabulously as I had to swing the RA20 into and over my lawn to make it work. No issues at all!!! 517408

Great dolly! I got this to replace one I got or like $75. That was a piece of crap: cheap construction, bolts that came loose, metal that bent easily. This one is exactly what a trailer dolly should be: high quality, sturdy construction. 470637

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

The trailer dolly works really well on flat, smooth surfaces. Must keep the tires firm to turn corners well. Would be perfect for a concrete or asphalt surface, but works well on crushed gravel. Would not recommend for slopped terrain. 425018

The Trailer dolly works very well over paved or light rock driveway. I would recommend it to anyone needing a trailer dolly. Makes moving a trailer very easy task. The large wheels make a big difference verses a trailer dolly with smaller wheels. I have a 14' trailer to move in and out of my barn with 9' wide doors (trailer is 8' wide) very easy. 329049

I haven't tried using it yet, so I can't say how well it works yet, but it appears to be very solid. The wheels/tires are much larger than the ones on my Harbor Freight dolly which gives me impression I will be able to more easily move my boat & pop-up trailer. With regards to putting it together - I followed the instructions, but wasn't able to connect the smaller top stablizer bar. The holes did NOT line up. I had to go back & loosen all the other nuts before I could line up the holes on the stablizer bar. Once that was connected, I went back and tightended all the other nuts. I personally feel using a bolt/nut on the adjustable ball is a poor design that doesn't allow for rapid adjustment. So I used a pin instead as shown in the picture. 144126

Working out very well. Much easier to move my 2000lb popup trailer over level terrain.

Very strong and well built for the purpose it seems. My only hang up is that the handle section is heavier than it's lower unit and will not stand up. It flops over. The angle iron (3rd leg) should be larger and heavier to facilitate it's standing up as it appears in the picture. The hitch ball aught also to be larger. Way too small 201855

This is a great dolly. Got tired of fighting my jack wheel when it would not pivot and it would scrape the sealant off my driveway and make it considerably harder to push the trailer. With this dolly the trailer glides across the driveway. Unboxed and assembled in 30 minutes. Foam filled tires would be a nice addition in the future. Using this dolly on a 5 x 10 motorcycle trailer. 431929

I had a very tight storage area for my camper and had to unhitch, move and re-hitch my tow vehicle to get it inside the building. There is only 6 inches on each side. I ordered the Rack'em trailer dolly and it was easy to assemble and has worked great saving me the 30-45 minutes struggling with my camper before. With the trailer dolly, I can easily push it right into place. It is well built and sturdy. the big wheels make a big difference. I highly recommend this piece of equipment. 145580

It has been fine. I do have to keep airing the tires up as they have a tendency to leak air. the unit itself works fine.

There's no doubt the Rack'em is built to do exactly what the description says. The materials are top-quality and assembly is pretty easy. The challenge with this product, which is made in China, is that the particular unit I purchased was apparently manufactured just after the work-crew came back from a beer-break. The handle portion of the unit is approximately 5-degrees off from center and if I used the pre-drilled holes, nothing quite lined-up. I had to re-drill the holes to make things fit, although it's still not what it should be. I bought this unit as a birthday present for my 32-year old son, who wanted to keep the unit rather than send it back. The Rack'em does work but perhaps, more importantly, has provided an entirely new channel for comedic relief between father and son. "Hey, where are you going with that trailer? Looks like you're turning left and it's actually going straight!" There's no doubt the Rack'em has made moving our trailers much easier. An added benefit has been the laughter it's also brought to our home. 150349

I received the RA-20-Trailer Dolly which will make turning the boat trailer around in my railroad ballast graveled driveway easier . I fish the salt chuck for king salmon you must wash the boat and flush the motor each time you fish which involves turning the boat trailer around to wash properly along with saving my back . The RA-20-Trailer Dolly is put together wonderfully . Thank you John Williams Sasquatch baiter . 690651

This is an excellent and well-designed piece of gear. It's heavy duty and the axle is strong enough to prevent deformation under heavy loads. Also, the tires have stayed well inflated and after one year have only recently required a little more air pressure. I'm very happy with this Rackem product and would happily buy it again. 395049

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


Comments
Well after more usage over the past few years, Ive decided this unit is going to be replaced ... the wheelbase is too narrow, which results in the jack foot hitting the tires, andor the dolly goes up on 1 wheel and tips over, making it impossible to do sharp turns ... VERY annoying. To improve on this unit, they should beef up the axle and widen the stance around 12, along with a wider handle for overall better leverage/mechanical advantage. Also, the hardware tends to come loose, but since Ive loc-tited all the fasteners, it seems to be holding up. If that doesnt work, nyloc nuts might be a better option.

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

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

I just received the rackem trailer dolly and it was excellent! Seems very sturdy, and well built. I used it to get my large popup into a very tight space. My pop up is about 3300lbs with about 350lb tongue weight. It lifted it with ease and the large wheels worked well getting it pushed on crushed granite rocks. It would have worked extremely well if I was pushing it over concrete. 341741

I ordered the Rack’em RA20 Trailer Dolly from etrailer to assist in loading our 16 ft. boat into our self-made boat hauler/camper. It was delivered as scheduled. It is definitely better quality than the dolly my son bought at a local tool store. It makes it easy to move the boat even on the ballast rock parking lot where the trailer and boat are in storage. It gives me full control of loading the boat into the camper with less than three inches of clearance on each side, using a remote control winch mounted in the trailer. Without the RA20 it would be next to impossible to control the loading. It's a great tool. 419882

We live on a large lot that generates a considerable amount of green waste and I have a dump trailer specifically for taking it to the recycling station. To optimize space on the paved pad I park the trailer in a way that doesn't allow backing the pickup directly to the trailer. I was somewhat dubious that this dolly would permit one old guy to pull the loaded trailer around and take it to the pickup but in fact it works just fine - it's a workout but I can do it. I'm very happy with this purchase and use the dolly regularly. 625398

Its been a year and Ive had no issues, the only maintenance has been putting air in the tires. I cut a stick to make it easy to adjust the trailer tongue to the perfect height for the dolly, that was a good investment of five minutes.

The dolly is sturdy, easy to assemble and easily moves my 3000 lb trailer because of the pneumatic tires. I already have one of these dollies but needed another for a different location. A little pricey but worth the money. Couldn't find anything else this well constructed and with the features that I needed. 859845

I use this trailer dolly to move a Boston Whaler Super Sport 130 and trailer (about 1300 lbs.) from my driveway into my garage. The driveway is relatively level with a dip for drainage and a small lip into the garage. The dolly works extremely well navigating the boat and trailer into fairly tight quarters. It requires a bit of push to get the boat and trailer up the slope of the drainage dip and over the lip into the garage, but is reasonably doable for one person. The driveway and garage are concrete surfaces. I think that this trailer dolly is good for weights up to about 1,500 lbs. over relatively level, paved surfaces. The dolly is well-made, and the large tires provide for leverage. 817418

  • Tow Dolly for Travel Trailer With 2 Coupler
    The 1-7/8" hitch ball on the Rack'em Trailer Dolly # RA20 is compatible with your travel trailer that has a 2" coupler; the coupler and ball size don't have to be a perfect match when just using a dolly. Having said that, the best option is the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2" Hitch Ball # TVXL2 as it is the easiest to maneuver, but is also the premium option. The Valet XL has a chain drive system that allows you to switch between high and low gears and a drill bit...

  • What Prevents Cotter Pins of Rack'em Trailer Dolly RA20 From Backing Out
    If the cotter pins that hold the wheels on the Rack'em Trailer Dolly # RA20 are sliding out that means you don't have the pin installed properly. Push the pin through the hole and then bend the ends of the pin that stick through the hole out so that the pin cannot slide out. With the pin bent like this it would prevent it from falling out.

  • Using Rack'em # RA20 Trailer Dolly for Trailer With Coupler for 2 Inch Ball
    No worries. A larger ball is honestly not necessary. For a dolly that's being used to transport a trailer around at slow speeds it's not so important to have the same size ball as what the coupler on the trailer requires. That is why all the dollies that we carry have a 1-7/8 inch ball. It is the smallest size and will fit all couplers that take a 1-7/8 inch or larger ball. You can see a product demonstration video featuring the dolly by clicking the provided link.

    The most cost effective trailer dolly we have for you is the Rack'em Trailer Dolly part # RA20.

This dolly comes with a 1-7/8" hitch ball that will work with all of the standard trailer couplers (1-7/8", 2", 2-5/16") as the hitch ball just needs to sit inside the coupler, not lock into the latching mechanism.

  • What is The Heaviest Duty Trailer Dolly Available

  • Does Trailer Dolly Capacity Refer to Tongue Weight?
    The capacity you are referring to for a trailer dolly is the tongue weight capacity the dolly can handle, which is sometimes referred to as hitch weight. So if your pop-up camper has a dry (unloaded) hitch weight of 380 lbs, that is the same as having a 380 lb tongue weight. For that amount of weight we have a number of dollies that would work well and I recommend the Rack'em Trailer Dolly # RA20 which has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. It has a 1-7/8" hitch ball, 13"...

  • Do Trailer Dolly Hitch Balls Have to Match the Ball Size of Coupler
    We don't sell a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball with a 3/4 inch shank, but since a tow dolly is only used for small trailer movements across a parking lot your current hitch ball should work just fine. When using a tow dolly the tongue weight alone of the trailer will keep the coupler attached to it. You do not have to use the exact same size hitch ball on a dolly. That is why frequently tow dollies will use a small sized hitch ball so that all coupler sizes can be used on them. As long as the...
