|Just googled it .......... |
I'm no expert.......but assuming it pulls up into the A frame as high as the standard jockey wheel does, then I don't see a problem ..............
That said, I've managed to rip off a bog standard jockey wheel on my box trailer, due the slope on the MIL's drive ...........

|But how much does it weigh? |
It's weight will bear almost directly on the tow hitch so be careful not to exceed your tow cars hitch limit.
|It will be very interesting to know if it does what it is sold to do. |
Experience from yesteryear was my hitch tractor worked fine with my then 1100kg van on my 1:14 incline tarmac drive, but was a nightmare braking when I moved up to a 1700 kg van or even the lighter van also if it ran off the drive onto the lawn.
