Hi, I currently have boonedoxs landing gear but still is heavy for moving PA12. I have seen 2 other options, a Hobie universal dolly and one from Dynamic Dolly. Does anyone have experience with either? Can either one be used in conjunction with the boonedox landing gear? Would it be a big difference if I even used one compared to just the boonedox? I mostly want to move to and from truck without having to take multiple trips back and forth. Thank you.

Assuming your issue is lifting the front end of your PA, you might consider this HF item that could be modified to strap under the bow, so all you are dealing with is pulling the PA while the Boondoxs wheels are deployed.

I don't have a trailer, looks like your link is for a trailer dolly. Are you suggesting to modify it somehow? Certainly more economical, thank you.

Let me rephrase, how would you suggest modifying?

It requires you to modify the HF dolly by removing the trailer ball.

Make a "cross" that installs underneath and into the front/bow carry handle. The length of the vertical pole of the cross bar, that mounts into the dolly where the trailer ball was located is dependent on how far you want the bottom of the bow to be off the ground/clearance.

The width of the horizontal part of the cross needs to be about 14" long so it fully supports the underside of the Hobie front carry handle.

Since I can't draw the idea, I think you should get the gist of it.
