Default trailer dolly

I own a 17' Maxum with Merc 125 ob. I have a gravel driveway with a narrow garage entrance that makes backing it in via my truck difficult.

Has anyone used a trailer dolly in similar circumstances? I have no doubt this would work well on a paved driveway, but my concern is that I wont be able to move the trailer and boat on gravel.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Have a great day!

How thick is the gravel? Will the wheels dig in or is it pretty hard packed? I would look for something with larger / wider tires....

I wouldnt call it hard packed. With that much weight I can imagine it digging in. Does anyone have a suggestion on a better trailer dolly given my circumstances?

How far are we talking about here? Would throwing down 1-2 sheets of plywood fix this issue?
