Park ItMoving a trailer with serious weight requires raw power. But the larger the tow vehicle, often the less maneuverable the rig becomes. With Parkit360's Transformer 15K Trailer Dolly, one person can move a 15,000 lb. fifth wheel, tag-a-long, gooseneck or traditional trailer with absolute ease by simply walking and steering with its wireless remote control.

The Transformer 15K's muscle comes from two powerful 1.5 hp Bosch electric motors with planetary gearing. The trailer dolly runs off a user-supplied 12V deep cell battery; a charger is built in. Traction to climb a 6% grade of grass, gravel or pavement comes from 6.5" wide track tires.

15,000 lbs. can gain momentum, so the Transformer 15K has a Smart Brake Controller for safe handling. Connected to the trailer's wire harness, it automatically controls electric and surge brakes.


The wireless remote control sets it apart from other power dollies. It provides the operator the ability to walk around the trailer that's being moved for a true 360 degree view. The Transformer 15K delivers the ability to park a trailer with inches to spare. It can even be backed into a space as a theft deterrent—something a truck can never do. A video is at bit.ly/2r36P5q.

The Transformer 15K features Parkit360's Stableloc Technology. With its included ball mount and king pin adapter, it will connect to almost any hitch right out of the box.


Parkit360's Transformer 15K comes with a two-year warranty. Its list cost is $4,620, but online pricing is commonly available.
