Definitely easiest to keep trailer attached to the car, but for in the garage & in dinghy park I have a folding prop made out of two pieces of MDF.

Rope as hinge and rope to stop them spreading too far apart, in practice it can be pushed under the stern and is adjustable in height, as long as it is on gravel or a non-slip surface, once the weight is on it the legs don’t spread. I made it up when working on the restoration as it is easier to keep the boat on the trolley.

Hmmm, that does make sense but probably needs a photo đź’ˇ
