    Parkit360 dolly use on a fifth wheel

    Iíve got a Reflection 29RS and a tight back yard parking challenge. Does anybody have experience with the Parkit 360 moving a fifth wheel? Iím under their 15,000 rig weight and 3,000 hitch weight limit and my slope is less than 4% so on paper it should work but would like to hear a real world endorsement.

    I need to park mine in a place that's likely easy to get into, but challenging to get out. Just looked at that device and looks quite interesting, but man that sure ain't cheap.

    Good luck!

    We have pondered, but wow the sticker price once set up with the accessories is like 5k. There's a guy on Youtube (Joseph Le I believe) who shows him moving his 31mb with a Powercaster + Parkit 5th wheel adapter. 9' gap I think.

    I have the same, but a bad angle and electrical meter that I crunched trying to park this past weekend. We opted for a storage lot about a mile away for now.

    EDIT: here's the link to the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKim...annel=JosephLe I looked at his setup and would be about $1500 cheaper than Parkit, but Parkit is super nice.

    Good gravy! I sure hope he's running that mousetrap with complete control of the trailer brakes or that looks like a serious accident waiting to happen... We have camping friends in a tract home like that with 38-ft 5er. He bought a 3K forklift with 20-some thousand hours on it for $1200 and paid me in bourbon to fix the controls, setup controls for the trailer brakes, and fabricate a pin adapter for the forks . It works great and has the mass, but that mousetrap...

    It took me a couple of looks to see why the thing doesn't just fold up. I see the braces now, but man, that has some serious issues with safety. Wow, no way man.

    Looks like cribbing for under landing legs to get unhitched from the truck on the slope.

    Do not do it, the park it is junk. I had a 4k lbs trailer and bought the 10k lbs model. The first time I tried it, everything worked. By the third time is stopped working completely. I worked for six months with their tech support including replacing the entire circuit board that runs it and it never, and I mean never worked again. First they said it was my battery on my RV. Then they said it was a circuit board problem. Then they wanted to send out a motor. I wanted a refund, they wanted me to ship it back at like another $400 dollars cost. After I spent $1200 on the device, no way was I dropping that kinda cash to send it back. After a few months they stopped returning all my calls. After a year it put it in the garbage. All I can say is just, do not do it.
