ONTARIO, Canada — Large fifth wheel and bumper pull trailers demand a tow vehicle equal to the task. But when it’s time to park these giants, there’s often little room to maneuver without jeopardizing damage. With Parkit360’s Transformer 15K Trailer Dolly, not only can one person easily move up to a 15,000-pound trailer with a 2,200-pound tongue weight, but they can do it with absolute confidence using the included wireless remote control.
The Transformer 15K’s remote provides the user an unprecedented view of the trailer and the ability to walk around it while it’s in motion. It’s intuitive to use, and tight corners and obstacles are no match for it. Jackknifing is non-existent. A video is at bit.ly/2r36P5q]bit.ly/2r36P5q.
Two massive 1.5-horsepower Bosch electric motors with planetary gearing drive the Transformer 15K—even over rough terrain and a 6 percent grade. Large 6.5-inch wide tires provide exceptional traction. It runs off a 12-volt deep cell battery, and has an integrated charging system and built-in power monitor.
For maximum safety, once connected to the trailer’s 7-way power harness, Smart Braking technology sets the electric or surge brakes as soon as it’s turned on. When the forward or reverse buttons are applied, they switch off; in neutral, they reset.
Parkit360’s Transformer 15K is made to last. Its frame is computer designed for maximum strength. Laser cut, it’s robotically welded together and powder-coated for a long service life.
Four versions of the Transformer 15K are offered: Goose Neck, Fifth Wheel, Ball Mount, and Fifth Wheel and Ball Mount. It lists at $3,100, with online pricing commonly available.
