    Very cool. One thing that I thought of though while watching was, what if it somehow disengaged from the tires while on an incline? That could make for a bad day.

    Very cool accessory, but cost and weight would deter me.

    I not only like that one, but my popup has the very jocky wheel they replaced with it, so it would go right on in a minute as well. I wonder what it would cost to get one here.

    I love the electric one, I'm thinking that once it's in place it would also act as a chock?
    One person could hold the leveler pads in place and back it right up on them without any help.

    Only problem I would see was if you forgot to disengage them before towing... opps... would that count as a SPUT?

    Sorry for posting on such an old post, but I thought it was very interesting!

    NEVER a need to apologize for expanding your knowledge, no matter how old the book.

    I wonder how that unit would stand up to grit, sand, road grime, gravel, mud, or anything else being thrown onto it when traveling down dirt roads, muddy campgrounds, or just driving in the rain?

    Other than that, it is a pretty cool piece of equipment!

    The rough terrain in Korea might be hard on the smaller wheel.

    I'm skeptical on how it will do on rough or non level surfaces. My main goal was to be able to manouver it around my parking area. Being able to move the pup with out it being hooked to the TV is what I was after. The length of the pup and the TV made dodging the detached garage, clothes line polls, a tree, and a fense touugh.

    Now when we are ready to go, I can park the TV at the correct angle to get down the alley and "drive" the pup to it and hook up.

    When we get back I don't have to back into the driveway. I can pull straight in, unhook the pup, and move it to where we store it.

    I'm going to try it at a CG. I'll see what happens. If it works, great. If not, then I am still ahead of the game by what this lets me do at home.

    Found it available in the US, it's about $1500 for the 2 wheel trailer.

    Here's a link http://www.easi-move.com/

    Might have to save my pennies, my SO isn't real good with helping on the Hookup or positioning. [RTM]

    Get a Popup and don't worry about it. PUP is easily moved by hand.
