I got to admit that sometimes I tend to be lazy.

My dolly was built in about 20 min out of a used / old pallet, some scrap 2 x 4s and 4 caster wheels.

I won't win any beauty competition, but it works

Cabezon23,

Well, you probably don't have time to spend making a camper dolly because you are spending so much time tearing into the cabinets of your brand spanking new Bobcat. Actually, your mods looked pretty darn useful to me.

Ben is probably laying awake nights thinking that now every new customer is going to be asking for cabinet mods like that.

Here are a couple more camper dolly pictures I have saved.

I think I like the ones I see in the posting on this thread better.

You guys have made some nice ones !

I asked Jeff at ATC (THE welder) about where/how to support the camper off the truck and he said, "All corners and the middle."

I used three "Heavy Duty Mover's Dollys" 18" x 30" x 6 1/2" rated at 1000 lbs. I already had two (I paid $14 each) and bought another one not on sale ($28).

I also had some 24" x 36" x 3/4" plywood I used to provide a little more clearance for the jack legs to be above the floor.

What? No one wants to recreate my 'tank'? A whole forest was cut down just to support my camper! I could have built a housing development in some 3rd world country with that wood (if only I had seen these ideas before building). Sheesh...no respect for anything built 'solid' anymore. I'm going back into my stone castle with moat now.:rolleyes:

Brett,

I was going to make a comment on the simplicty of Mikes dolly vs. yours but didn't want to hurt your feelings. While Mikes dolly will work for what he needs, yours is so much more functional though.

If anyone needs to move a small house, car, large piano, steer, small or large elephant, you will have them covered while that puny dolly that Mike made is just for the camper and maybe a keg. :D
