bike trailer mod anybody?

hey up me ducks

bit of a strange question really

ive got a 2 bike trailer,its made by acorn trailers, its a proper bit of kit,galvanised, proper 10" wheels,tilting mechanism etc,

however SWMBO  has had enough of it on the front lawn,so I'm gonna give in [ again ] and stick it round the back, BUT;

its got to go on its side to get down the side of the house, and it almost gives me and our lad a hernia carrying it,

does anybody make a set/pair of wheels to fit on the side??. I did see one somewhere on-line a while ago but cant remember

where, ive tried googling .. trailer castors,storage wheels,etc but I don't know the correct term and came up non the wiser

I reckon it would be a better with fixed wheels than castors ,I have about 50feet to move it ,including 4 steps down to my workshop

maybe it,ll be easier if I grow a pair and tell her its got to stay where it is lol, but I really want it under cover for the winter

Sounds to me like you will need some kind of Carrier Dolly Trailer Tote Trolley Transport Cart! Perhaps a pair of em!

If you are going down steps and stuff perhaps some nice strong durable castors with little rubber tyres on em would be best, unless you can lift it on the step bit..

This is how I got around not having room for a trailer when I first moved

to Christchurch.... bike was kept in a storage unit...

So I tossed this togeather at work...

I over engineered it just slightly..... don't need to be this big of strong...

Takes a couple minutes to put on or off.... just plugs into a fitting on

the tow bar with a couple of pins to hold it...

only draw back is removing the chain...

but not much good if yer need to tow more than one bike....
