Hey everyone, when our boat is not in winter storage its other home is the garage. Being that the garage is only a 22'x22' its a tight fit for our 2008 SKI SUPREME V212 boat.

With the enormous platform removed and the folding trailer hitch pushed away, we are able to back the boat in the garage.

This task is not easy and must be done with care and patience.

I recently seen these:

http://www.theautodolly.com/auto_dolly_12_in_hd.php[/url]

We were thinking the 12" width would be good as the dollies come in 8" 12" & 16"

They are a heavy duty wheel dolly system that will handle a total weight of 10,000lbs using all four wheel dollies on the tandem axle trailer.

Our boat+ trailer weighs approx 4900lbs

We noticed that the auto dolly system comes in a standard set as well, but noticed that the weight rating is only at 6000lbs (using four) and that the casters are a small diameter than the heavy duty ones.

I thought if we ever wanted to move the Ford F-150 around the standard dollies would be too weak

Thats why we think the heavy duty would be better and make that placement in the garage so much easier as this is not a fun thing to do when we come home from the lake.

Sometimes all we need to move the boat is 4" horizontally and this requires the driver of the truck to "TRY AGAIN"

Has anyone used this brand of wheel dolly system or heard of any other systems?

Note: We do not mind having to jack the wheels up to place the stands under the jack, as we already do this to straighten out the torsion axles from that evil flex they receive when backing the boat into the garage at its sideways angle.

Thanks for reading
