    I have a travel trailer that is 30' long total. I have a 35' space to the street, concrete 17' to house then dg to street. The doors to the trailer is on the left side (looking forward) but my house pad is on the right. If I back it in the doors are over dirt and pointed at my neighbors. I want them pointed towards my house so I can go in/out and load it. The hitch would be up against my house.
    What I've thought of. Pull in and jackknife truck so hitch is over the cement. Build a dolly with big wheels or mount a wheeled trailer hitch so it will roll. Add a post by house to use a come along to get it close.
    What would you do?

    I had the same dilemma. It just became easiest to pull the trailer out front to load. Mom stacks things to leave in the front entry, sherpas (children) run it out to dad to be stowed properly.

    Either that, or with a good running start, you could just park the truck in the living room

    I used to have a similar problem, and I backed it in, disconnected, and then finished the job with a hitch I put on the front.

    If it's straight in use a winch mounted at the end. We off roader smucks use these all the time. Might need a lever on the wheel to steer.

    Buy a forklift with a long fork. I'll split it with you since getting into my driveway can be a pain and I live down the street.

    (kidding...I'm getting better at getting my boat in the sideyard on the first try but might need to do some tree trimming soon)

    Find an old small ride-on mower for cheap. Weld a hitch on front. Buddy bought a boat and it came with one. Slick little set up. They are geared pretty low and it handled a 26' lake boat.
