Improved jockey wheels

To get my boat on and off the drive, I need to unhitch and manoeuvre by hand.

At the moment I just have a standard thin, solid jockey wheel.

I would like to add a thicker pneumatic wheel to help moving by hand.

Can anyone recommend a decent quality one?

Pneumatic wheel can cause more friction since more rubber surface is in contact with the ground. But if on a gravelly surface it would improve things.
I have a work trailer that I need to maneuver by myself. I got a Fulton XLT and the swiveling is the easiest Iíve had. It also has a larger diameter wheel.
You have to buy the mount that works best for you separately. Bolt on or weld on.

After numerous punctures I swapped pneumatic jockey for a foam filled one half way house between solid and pneumatic but does get a flat spots seems worse in this heat how much weight do you have on the jockey?

Well the jockey wheel must of known he was inf or the chop!

Brought the boat back this weekend and it behaved perfectly, rolled well and swivel to turn really easily. So I'll just kepp it for the moment.
