Electric motors with rotors move the trailer by a remote control.  They are attachedto the chassis so would need to be modified with risers added.  Wondered if anyone had done this

I have a 2015 179 with risers. I installed the Enduro trailer mover a couple of months ago. I did not have to modify anything to install it...... just used the parts that came with the mover.

Now instead of having to get in & out of my TV several times to get hitched up, I just use the mover to bring my pod up to the hitch. The mover also makes it very easy to locate my Pod exactly where I want it on a campsite. 

At home I have to keep my Pod parked around back & within inches along side of a retaining wall in order to keep my Pod out of view so the HOA Nazis don't get their panties in a bunch. The trailer mover makes getting up alongside the wall so easy.

I dealt with Paul Liner at PurpleLine & found him to be very helpful & patient.

Be prepared for a lot of questions when other campers see your Pod moving itself into position. 

Also, you can use the mover to rotate your Pod 180 degrees so the tongue is pointed away from the road. This makes it nearly impossible for someone to steal your Pod!!

Interesting, I've never seen this gadget before. At first I thought you were talking about the type that hooks into the hitch socket.

Can't be cheap though. Link?
