How many times has parking your trailer turned into a major dispute?
Picture the scene: you arrive home from your fabulous family camping trip, and all you want to do is go inside and unpack. But first, you have to park the trailer.
So, one person gets out to spot and the other begins to maneuver into place. It’s a tight fit, the angle isn’t working, and you’re having trouble communicating with one another. Before you know it, you’re stuck, you’re screaming, and everyone is ready to walk away.
“Why do we keep doing this?” you wonder. “We’d be better off if we never took this trailer out in the first place.”
We get it. Many of us trailer owners have had a hectic parking experience like this (or two, or three). From new campers to boat owners, we’ve all had trouble parking from time to time.
In fact, numerous customers have shared stories like this with us over the years. We’ve had many couples and families recount their stressful attempts to park their trailers in tight or awkward spaces, resulting in raised voices and short tempers.
Those same customers have also shared with us how much easier the parking process was after purchasing a Parkit360.
Just check out some of these reviews:
Been using my 10K Parkit360 a couple of months now and it has been great. My wife says it is worth the cost (she has been guiding me when using the truck to park the TT under a cover).

Hubby and I bought this to help park our 23’ Wolf Pup in our driveway. It works like a dream and is easy enough I can even control it. Thanks for the wonderful tool... may have saved a marriage ;-)!

This is going to make the most stressful parts of camping trips a breeze and will also lead to more domestic harmony.

My wife was not happy when I bought the Parkit360, she kept saying I should 'try to back the trailer in'. Well, the problem is the travel trailer is 11' wide and I would risk hitting the house! But, the Parkit360 worked perfectly and without much effort I was able to guide our trailer in with ease, and when I finished my wife said, "Now I know why you bought it and you were right!"

Parkit360 trailer mover works great. We call it the marriage saver. Nothing more stressful than a couple parking a trailer.

These real life stories inspired us to make this video, which tells the story of a couple who are new to camping and have found that parking their trailer is testing their marriage – and impacting their neighbours, too:
We love these stories because they remind us of why we created this product in the first place: Parkit360 trailer dollies don’t just help individuals tackle difficult parking situations – they also save families from a lot of undue stress!
That’s why we made the Force 5K and 10K models. They’re compact, easy to use, and capable of moving most recreational trailers (up to 5,000 and 10,000 lbs). You can store one of these units in your trailer compartment, or in the back of your vehicle, and take it along with you for maneuvering into cramped campsites as well.
Parking doesn’t have to be hard. No matter how tricky the spot, we want people to know that there is a simple solution so that they can feel empowered, confident, and less stressed. Camping should be a pleasant experience, from start to finish. You don’t want a fight over a bad parking job to ruin an otherwise enjoyable time.
Whether a family who is new to camping, or a couple who needs a more effective parking solution, an electric trailer dolly makes things better for everyone.
Don’t let the stress of parking keep you from pursuing your favourite hobbies together. Check out our full line of trailer dollies, and learn to start enjoying each other’s company again!
