Moving a tow dolly while not hitched?

Since I don't know what to call it, can't do a search. Is there anything, like a cart that can be hooked to the tow dolly to make it easier to move while not being hooked up to the MH? I bought a tow dolly, but have trouble moving it around while not hitched up or a load on it. I've been using my hand truck with a sturdly piece of pipe lodged up in it, but there must be a better way. Just for info purposes, I'm a short female with a very bad back.

Thanks for the help.

Kaye

Harbor Freight has them for much less..... $50 vs $180

Harbor Freight Trailer Dolly

NOTE: Harbor Freight is made in the Orient, but would suffice for what you need. It does not have a height adjustable ball, probably not an issue.

Amazon had one for 44.00. Once I knew what to look for, it was easy to find one.

I just had no idea what to look for.

I use the Northern Tool dolly to move my "dolly". It saves the back and makes moving the tow dolly a breeze. When I travel, I mount the dolly on a bike rack which I modified to be down by the bumper.
