from stretching, bending, lifting, and using your back as a crane to
remove gear from the bottom of your trailer especially when it's on the
side furthest away from you, also means you can get at your gear under
the cover of the awning. The end of the trolley can rest on a stool or
chair while unloading or loading.

feedback from the
CamperTrailers Group forum with the possible durability of the
castors on rough roads, I decided to try the blue poly boat trailer
rubbing strips mentioned as an alternative to allow the draws to freely
slide in & out of the trailer.
strips are used as skids on boat trailers & come in 1500 x 50 x 15mm
lengths & are available from all Whitworths Marine & Leisure stores.
There are 2
types of strips available, with or without grooves. I have used the
grooved ones. The product number is 91092 & are $9.90 each.

poly trailer rubbing strips being installed on the draw bottom.
