Thanks jondrew
I believe that you have the correct solution for the winter storage of the tow dolly. If I can get the dolly through the door I am not sure that I can manhandle the 350 lb. dolly to an upright position, protect the fenders, lights etc. without it falling on me. Lots of potential for injury.

A lightweight moped/scooter can easily hit 50 mph and you can park them almost anywhere. Receiver racks are readily available to mount them on the back or front.

That was my thought, Travco, but I don't know the ages of the poster and his partner... so I hesitated to mention that option.

Thanks again for the additional input.
We both are in our late 60's and I don't believe that a scooter will be the ticket.
Just a note on the lighter side, we rode a Harley for the better part of 15 years and the thought of a scooter seems a little strange to me personally.
Thanks again.

Was going to suggest a Sporty but was thinking of the lightest thing possible. Just wear a fullface so your friends don't recognize you!

I can only speak for myself, I'm an average size guy in my 60 s and can stand it up by myself. Two adults should be able to do it.

You might also consider renting a tow dolly from U Haul and take it on a short trip. These are usually bigger rigs than an EZ Tow, but you'll get some idea if dolly towing is for you. Then you could invest in buying one.
