Parkit360 dollies help maneuver pods and fifth-wheels

ONTARIO, Canada — Trailerable RVs have never been more popular, especially the new pod campers. But many people have difficulty maneuvering them with a car or truck, especially when backing around corners and into tight spaces.

With Parkit360’s Force 5K and Force 10K power dollies, moving a trailer has never been easier. Lightweight and small enough to fit into the back of a small sedan, they’re powerful enough to move a fifth wheeler.

Robust 1.5-horsepower Bosch electric motors, and the RVs or a conventional 12-volt battery, power the dollies. They come with a built-in charger.

The Force 5K handles loads up to 5,000 pounds with 4-inch wide tires for traction over a range of surfaces. The Force 10K moves up to 10,000 pounds on 6.5-inch tires.

Using a Parkit360 power dolly is simple. After freewheeling it to the trailer, it’s connected to its included 1–7/8-inch, 2-inch, 2–5/16-inch or 50mm ball, and locked down. Using the thumb toggle on the handle for forward and reverse, it’s purely a matter of steering. Because the operator is close to the RV and looking directly at it, there’s no concern over jackknifing or when within mere inches of a wall.

Parkit360’s Force 5K costs $1,096; the Force 10K, $1,342. They come with a 2-year warranty and online pricing is commonly available.
