Trailer Valet XL

When the time comes to move or align your unhitched trailer, the Trailer Valet XL is at your service. Instead of driving your vehicle to your trailer, use this heavy-duty dolly to drive your trailer to your hitch. This saves you the time and frustration of having to repeatedly back up your vehicle to align the hitch ball with your trailer's coupler.


The Trailer Valet XL also makes it easy to park or move your trailer into tight spots and to position it in a garage. It allows you to take corners and make slight adjustments in steering while the trailer is moving. No more attempting to back the trailer in with your vehicle.


How to Drive the Trailer Valet XL

The Trailer Valet XL is easy to operate. You can either use the included hand crank to operate the chain drive system, or you can make operation even easier by powering the drive with your 18-volt drill (not included). The drive system activates the dual positraction wheels. Both wheels are engaged while the Trailer Valet is moving straight - in either forward or reverse. When you need to make a turn, one of the wheels disengages and freewheels, allowing the other wheel to move the trailer. All you have to do is power the drive system and direct the Trailer Valet XL with the steering handle. When you straighten the steering handle back up, the other wheel reengages and the Trailer Valet XL drives straight again.


The Trailer Valet XL also includes an auto-brake function that acts as a wheel chock to keep your trailer in place. When the steering handle is raised up, the drive system is engaged. The handle automatically falls down when it is released, bringing the wheels to an immediate halt. This safety feature prevents your trailer from running away from you. The handle also locks when down, keeping your trailer level and secure for storage, though wheel chocks should still be used.


Never-Flat Tires

The solid rubber, never-flat tires on this dolly outperform inflatable tires, and hold up better under the weight of your trailer. Deep treads in the tire surface give you better traction on gravel, dirt, and grass. But you will get the best results when using this dolly on well-packed surfaces or pavement.

          Video Transcript for Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly Review

          Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Trailer Dolly XL. Now this is available in 2 different models. One model comes with a 2 inch ball. And the toher model comes with the 2-5/16 inch ball. When the time comes to move or align your unhitched trailer, the Trailer Valet XL is at your service. The Trailer Valet has an integrated drive system which makes moving the trailer very easy. Now, one of the key features about the Trailer Valet XL is it's ability to be used with the included drill bit.

          This is designed to replace the handle, so you can remove the handle, place the bit over either the low gear or the high gear. Then you can operate the drive system using the 18-bolt drill. The Trailer Valet XL also makes it easy to park or move your trailer into tight spots and to position it in a garage. It allows you to take corners and make slide adjustments in steering while the trailer is moving, which means no more attempting to back the trailer in with your vehicle. The chain drive system is powered by an easy-to-use hand crank. This allows you to drive and steer your trailer with minimal effort and allows you to switch between high and low gears for effortless driving even on an incline. The dual pause attraction wheels allow for easy maneuvering.

          One tire freewheels when you're turning, then reengages when the turn is completed. The large steering handle makes guiding the unit very easy. It's got a nice textured rubber grip design here on the end, and then when it's not being used, we can allow the handle to engage in this clip which gives it a stable position. The Trailer Valet has an automatic brake built into the unit and it's going to engage every time the handle is in the release or down position. As you can see, for demonstration purposes today, we're on a really steep incline. This is a loading dock here at our warehouse.

          I'm going to take the trailer as far up as we can until it starts spitting 00:01:54 out. Then I'm going to release the drive mechanism. I'm going to release the handle. I'm going to let the brake do its job. Here we go.

          I'm going to go ahead and release. During the demonstration, it's important to note that we're just working with the trailer weight. There is no cargo loaded in our trailer. Please note that even though the unit features an automatic brake to keep the trailer from rolling, chocks should still be used during storage. Now, we brought you out here to a gravel lot because we want to show you that the Trailer Valet, whether you're on hard surface, soft surface or even a rocky surface, it's going to get the job done. The Trailer Valet features a rugged steel construction with black powder coating which is going to help resist rust and corrosion. It also features a 300-hour salt spray rating. The 9-inch diameter wheel allows for easy maneuvering. The unit features a gross trailer weight capacity of 10,000 pounds, maximum total weight capacity of 1,000 pounds. The collar, which is designed to offer a nice tight fit on the coupler has adjustment to it. That way, you can work with different coupler designs. One of the neat things about the Trailer Valet is how easily it can be moved from one trailer to the other. Now, we want to go ahead and show you how to get the Trailer Valet connected to your trailer. Before you do so, you want to make sure that you have at least 75 psi in each tire. We went ahead and checked ours and we filled it up to about 80 psi per tire. Now, we're ready to go ahead and put the ball inside the rotating socket here on the Trailer Valet. Really simple to do, it's going to have some pinholes down here that we want to make sure line up with the pinholes in the socket. Put that in there and then we can secure it by installing the included pin and then bringing the clip around to the other side. Now, we want to make sure that the coupler height of our trailer is high enough, that way, we can fit the ball of the Trailer Valet directly underneath. It's got a nice easy grab handle right here, so that way, we can lift it up into position. As you can see, the coupler height is just directly above the ball. Now that the ball is directly underneath the coupler, we can go ahead and lower our trailer jack which is going to lower the coupler onto the ball. We'll go ahead and lower it all the way down and then to secure it, we'll go ahead and bring our coupler latch up and into the fully seated position. With it fully connected, we will raise the trailer back up until the wheels of the Trailer Valet are off of the ground. Now, we'll take this collar, this is the locking nut. We'll turn it counterclockwise, raising it up underneath the lip of that coupler. This is going to keep the unit from disengaging from the coupler so it's going to keep the ball secure inside that socket area. Now with that collar hand tight, we'll go ahead and move it around and you can see how much play it has. What we want to do is we want to use the included tool to continue tightening as we move this around. That's going to take out any of that excess play, making sure that everything is tight and secure. With everything tight and secure, we can go ahead and raise up our trailer jack which is going to put the weight of the trailer onto the Trailer Valet. Then we can go ahead and remove our blocks. The final thing we need to do before we're ready to go ahead and use this to move our trailer around is we need to attach our drive handle. Place it right over one of the two gears. We have a high gear and a low gear. We're going to use the high gear. The unit slides over and that it engages in that hole on the handle to hold it firmly in place. That's going to complete today's look at the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly,

          The first time we used the TrailerValetXL was to move our 16' double axel, enclosed tool trailer with a 650 lb. tongue weight. Prior to using the unit, we checked the tire pressure and topped off each side to the recommended 80 lbs.... not an easy task might I add given the small gap between the housing and the wheel. We used a Milwaukee 18v drill on the low gear setting to drive the trailer. Within the first 10', both tires blew with the valve stems ripping off where they protrude through the metal wheel. I ran the unit down to Trailer Valet and they replaced both inner-tubes (Free of charge). They warned us about turning the unit without forward motion (which we were not doing) With two brand new inner tubes we were then able to finish moving that trailer into it's parking spot. The second time we tried to use the Valet was to move our empty dump trailer into our yard. The trailer is 16' long with a double axel. The empty the trailer weighs in at just under 4000 lbs. with a 500 lb. tongue weight. Same procedure as before... we checked tire pressure before moving. This time we used the hand crank to move the trailer. Everything was going ok for the first 10' , but as soon as we started to turn the trailer valet (with two of us working the trailer valet, one driving and one cranking) we had one wheel blow. The other wheel blew shortly after. We finished the moving the trailer to just behind the gate with a dolly and a lot of back and forth with the truck, then back to TrailerValet I went. Again, I got the same lecture about not turning without moving the crank (not something we tried to do) and again, they replaced the inner tubes (free of charge) However, this time they acknowledged that I was not the only one they’d seen complaining of blown valve stems. In addition, the tech mentioned that sometime the trailer valet seems to have a hard time with double axel trailers. I asked them why didn’t they use a solid wheel? They said solid wheels were coming soon. For a small, lightweight, single axel travel trailer I think the XL would work great. The fit and finish on it are good, the gearing is adequate, and overall it has a nice design. However, the claimed capacity of 1,000 lbs of tongue weight and 10,000 lbs. overall is wishful thinking on their part. My experience is 4 blown tires in two moves of two different trailers. In addition to the blown tires I would also say that: The hitch ball post is a little too short to get the trailer anywhere close to level, which in turn, is probably overloading the tongue and adding to the tire failures. The drive handle too is short, so you end up awkwardly hunched over trying to steer this thing. The slightest amount of lateral pressure with a trailer of any substantial size and you risk a flat. 296575

          I am torn with your product. On the one hand, I have been able to move my trailer, which is the whole point. On the other hand, since the first time I used it, I had a horrible time because one of the tires got deflated in the middle of the moving. It was so scary and dangerous, and happened to me 3 more times, but at least I was prepared. I called your tech support. This guy (I forgot his name) was great. Fantastic customer service! I explained what happened and he sent me two inner tube replacements. Once I got them, he took me step by step to put apart the dolly and replace the tire. It took me more than an hour, but it worked... until I used again. It happened the same thing. I call him back and explained that the valve was the problem. It gets caught and breaks. He was not able to help me any further. I bought some other inner tubes and tried them with the same result. Finally, I bought from the internet, inner tubes for small airplanes! So far, I have not had the problem again. My trailer is very big, but still the weight is below 10,000 and the tongue is less than a 1,000, which according to your specifications, it would be OK. One more thing, it is not possible to maneuver, it works only in a straight line to avoid more trouble. I move my trailer once every 2 months or so. I use the trailer valet less than 6 times, and it has been a very complicated and painful experience, considering that I move it less than THREE feet! I have a small upward gradient in my driveway, and that makes a huge difference. I need to use a lot of arm force. Very hard for one person. My wife and I work together. She manages the handle/break, and I crank it. Once I pass the grade, gets much better. All in all, I changed 4 tires, spent money and time (an hour each time) looking for options, and suffer a big deal, but other than these issues I mentioned and to be fair, your product and service present great quality. You should research and try the inner tubes I mentioned for small airplanes. They seem so far to have the best performance. The only thing is that the valve did not fit perfectly in the hole because it is a little wider than the others, but it would be an easy fix by making a bigger hole. Also, you may design a three or four tire dolly. I don't know, after putting your product apart so many times, I started to think a lot about how to improve it for large trailers like mine. I hope you appreciate the time I spent to review your product, and that my insights may help you to improve it. Thank you, César Mateos Plano, Texas 370992

          Buy it!! When you compare this to what else is out there, for the price its worth it! Here is my review for the Trailer Valet XL with 2-5/16" hitch ball. Primary Use: 26 foot Wildcat Travel Trailer, 7,500 pounds, 750 pound tongue weight. Packaging: Arrived on time as expected. It was packed appropriately with cardboard instead of the usual hard foam. For the size and weight I expected the packaging to be slightly better. Assembly: There was no assembly required, just make sure the hitch ball is tightened and add the optional spacer ring if needed. Check both tire pressures and make sure they are BOTH at the max 80 to 85 PSI! The YouTube video by the manufacturer helped to show how to set the hitch ball on the trailer correctly. I was able to use it for the first time on the trailer within 5 minutes! Quality: The overall quality feels and looks good. The steal used is relatively thicker than expected and powder coated well. I had two concerns that stood out right away after using it. The first one is that the steering/brake lever seems a little week. The bolt that attaches the handle is small in diameter and the metal attachment point is thin. I needed to add some grease to the lever were it engages the "braking" mechanism because it was sticking. The second thing I noticed after using it one time, was that it needs to be about a foot taller so the top cranking handle is easier to reach. Conclusion: My opinion is buy it!! As long as you take care of this and occasionally lube the moving parts I believe this will last for years! If you try to find anything else similar or try to "make" something like this you will spend two or three times as much money to get it done. If you have tight areas to maneuver or just need to move your trailer around often, this is a good investment! 318039

          I used the Trailer Valet XL with the 2 5/16 ball on a 5500 lb Lance trailer with a tongue weight of about 600 lbs. Using the drill attachment, it moved well on a flat paved surface and maneuvers quite nicely. I got the trailer into the desired space with one try on my first use. Part of the journey was a grass surface, which was a little more difficult, but manageable with the use of boards under the TVXL25 to maintain traction. It handled very slight ups and downs just fine. It would not handle a significant incline with a trailer this heavy and would not be safe down hill. USE AS INTENDED. My trailer required the use of a plate (included with the ball/sleeve but not described in the instructions--see pictures) which fits between the trailer coupler and the tightening sleeve of the TVXL25 (See FAQ in Support of Trailer Valet website). The plate opening was not large enough to install it on the ball/sleeve mechanism and required a small bit of "Dremeling", but then worked fine (thus the four star rating). Be sure to closely examine the fit with your trailer coupler to determine if you need this additional plate. It made a huge difference in tightness and stability. Overall, I recommend the product. You may need to be a bit handy if you use the larger ball and require the plate, but really not a big deal. Make sure the mechanism is rigidly tight and use as directed on flat surfaces. You will be pleased 246661

          I took a chance on the Trailer Valet XL and it delivered results better than expected. My issue was to place a 32ft camper trailer with a 970lb tongue weight into a posted 28ft (maximum) campground. The campground host told me by phone that a 32ft camper would be, “a hard back in” and she could not recommend attempting it. The terrain was slightly uphill (about 1%) and the material was initially an asphalt road perpendicular to the camp site, transitioning to loose sand and finally ending up on packed gravel/sand (Beach camping). Upon arrival, I backed in about half way until trees impeded further progression of the truck. The camper was unhitched and the Trailer Valet installed. The first 6 ft was asphalt and the dolly handled the load without a problem but quickly sunk into the loose sand at the asphalt/sand edge. The camper was raised and an 11 year old boy placed 2’x2’, 5/8” plywood sections for the dolly wheels to travel on in a temporary curved path leading the dolly to the final resting place of the trailer. The Trailer Valet traveled very well on the plywood as the curved path was periodically adjusted to ideally position the camper at its final resting place. The drill tool worked well and the brake held as the trailer tried to roll downhill when stopped. Some sort of wheel chocks should be used on the downhill side to prevent a runaway load. In summary, I would not attempt to roll a similarly heavy load uphill, if the slope was steeper than ~1%. The Trailer Valet worked very well on level asphalt and firmly packed gravel/sand and the plywood was essential to traveling over loose sand. I would use plywood if necessary to overcome other soil issues such as: other types of loose soils, gravel, soft grass, excessively wet soils and manageable, uneven ground to create a smoother more stable surface. 310357

          Have a 2017 Lance 2375 about 5500 lbs, and a narrow side yard to put it in, with a slight incline from the street. Need to angle the trailer from the entrance of my driveway to align with the side yard, so after the first time wrangling the trailer in position and moving it up the side, decided this might be a good alternative to my truck to avoid taking out the wall, garage, or the cement planters next to the driveway my wife had to have. Used it right out of the box. Started with my 18v drill. Stopped after it immediately started smoking, really. Had a corded drill and tried that. It had plenty of power to move this up(hand cranking worked for a few feet too, but a drill is the ONLY way to go). I can see where using this over anything but a paved surface might be more difficult traction-wise, but I had NO problem with traction on cement, even with the initial incline. I need to work the process through a bit. Can't see down the sides of course, so take your time and have a helper. Keep the ring tight, as it has a tendency to loosen as you angle the trailer, making the Valet more difficult to turn(might have been my mistake when i initially tightened it). The built in brake WORKS. Apply slight and constant pressure to keep the handle UP. Wasn't paying attention and the handle drooped slightly enough to engage the brake and spin the drill and my wrist in unnatural ways. But it did work and got it into a tight space. Just keep in mind handle all the way up to move, and drop the handle down to lock the Valet and your trailer. First time, but If the unit holds up, this is well worth the money-especially in avoiding damaging the trailer - just take it slow and easy. 339616

          As usual, etrailer.com has once again provided another outstanding product for a reasonable price & rapid-shipping. I needed this trailer dolly for the purpose of maneuvering a large capacity trailer with a 1,000 lb tongue-weight in tight quarters. Although I have seen this trailer-dolly for sale elsewhere on the Internet... they usually come with inflatable pneumatic tires which I did not want. I wanted my unit to come with both the solid tires & drill-socket attachment for my power drill. The unit provided by etrailer came with everything that I was looking for as well as being very competitively priced. It shipped super-fast & upon arrival I found the build-quality of this unit to be well-designed, extremely durable & very user-friendly. After a quick review of their on-line instruction video, I hooked it up & easily maneuvered my trailer into place. As I have additional trailers with various sized hitches, I will probably be ordering another size ball or two so as the trailer dolly can be used on my other units as well. My compliments to etrailer for your obvious commitment to customer service by once again providing superior products at competitive prices. Keep up the stellar performance & you will continue to have my business. Many-Thanks & Kind-Regards, Wizard 453418

          Bought this to pull travel trailer into driveway tongue first. 2015 Shadow Cruiser 280QBS, 5445 # dry weight, dry tanks, not much cargo. The Trailer Valet XL was good on the flats, but couldn't handle the modest driveway incline. Pavement was smooth and dry. Interesting failure mode - pushed to its limit in low gear, one of the two tires would spin on the rim, instantly flatting the tube. Happened several times. Yes, tire pressure was correct prior to operation. Maybe a bit of glue like the bicyclists use on tubeless tires would help. Travel Valet was good about sending me replacement tubes for free, but they were often back ordered; they seemed to be ordered special from China and I couldn't find a substitute on the interweb to speed things up. Changing a tire tube was not quick or easy but there was a helpful video on line. Fun fact: when you've got the trailer far enough up the driveway nose first, and your trailer mover fails, you're stuck until replacement parts arrive. No room for the tow vehicle to get in and push it out. Fortunately the neighbors were very understanding. Given that this was under optimum dry conditions (Portland, OR, 50% chance your driveway will be wet!), I gave up on it. Installed a Purple Line trailer mover, which has been working fine. 369170

          I purchased the Trailer Valet to move my Flagstaff travel trailer through a narrow space next to my house. Works perfectly and as a side benefit, I am able to position the trailer so that it opens onto my patio. Trailer has a GVWR of about 4,000 lbs. and the Valet handles it easily as I pull the trailer over crushed stone. I found that when cranking, sitting on a rolling stool is more comfortable than standing because of the low profile of the Trailer Valet. Unit seems to be well constructed. I have been very careful to steer it only when moving, and then only slightly. If a more drastic turn is necessary, I stop and raise the tongue so that the weight is off the Valet, turn it, lower it, then return cranking. I can see how some people may have a problem trying to force turn a heavy trailer and messing up the tires in the process. 395477

          Got mine today, after work I went out and connected it to my trailer, ( creekside FQ20) About 5000lbs, my driveway is a 3 degree slope for the first 25 ft and I was motoring up without any problems until the chain came off the sprocket . At this point there is no brakes and my trailer rolled back out into the street. Lucky for me I had move anything that I might hit down the street before I started. So I started looking at it very close and found it was missing a snap ring on the center gear shaft and the gear moved over and the chain climbed right over the top of the sprocket. I put it back together with a snap ring on the center gear shaft and started over moving my trailer . At this point it worked as good as I had hoped it would. Where my trailer sets there is only 2 inches of clearance between the trailers awning and the rain gutter of my house. For the price this thing is great and way less cost than repairing a trailer and the roof on my house. 256195

          I ordered the trailer valet with the 2 5/16 ball, I did need to modify the bracket that they ship with it that fits against the trailers receiver but it wasn't a big deal. Kinda understandable with all the different makes of trailers out there. I have a 28 foot coachman camper weighing 5400 pounds with 950 pounds of tongue weight and the valet works great with it. On blacktop it does have a problem with the little tires slipping when trying to go up on a 2 X 10 with just two of the four tires, but yet it will push the camper up a fair incline of about a 3 foot rise in 25 feet. I first did this with the hand crank to test the water so to speak. After that I hooked up the hand drill which made child's play of it and moves the camper very quickly. The valet made it very easy to move my camper into my narrow driveway from a narrow street and then maneuver into my lot. It is not cheep but after you have it you wonder how you got along with out it. 266532

          I give this product a 5 star rating because of Trailer Valet's excellent customer service even after an issue I had after purchasing this device. I ordered through etrailer.com and it shipped and arrived on time with no damage. After the first use I noticed when I stopped cranking and the trailer would come to a stop that the ball and chuck had excess pivot/sway when stopping. I tightened down the center nut to take out this sway and noticed that the trailer dolly would not turn freely when moving trailer. I disassembled the unit and found that the manufacture forgot to include the top set of bearings. I contacted Trailer Valet directly and they shipped out a complete (Top/Lower) set of bearings at no cost to me which I reassembled and now this dolly works like it should. I would highly recommend this dolly because of the ease of use and this unit is one very HEAVY Duty unit which handles my high tongue weight with no problem. 430224

          Works well. Have used it on my 28ft camper with about 8000 lbs on the tongue and my 23ft camper with about 4000 lbs on the tongue. I have a concrete pad with a cover that has grass before the pad. It was at its limits with the big camper, made me a little nervous, but it held up. I pulled on the grass and worked making turns, but not too tight. With the lighter camper, works like a charm. If I had a gripe it would be that the tires are too slick. On the grass any moisture leaves the tired spinning, not that big of a deal to toss some ply wood under it, but some grippy/knobby tires would be great. For concrete, no problem. I usually park the camper in alone and backing up a little and getting out to check everything, then repeating, was a total pain. The clearance is about 14" and with the overhang it is really tight. Now I just line it up, unhook and use the Trailer Valet with the cordless drill. 458992

          I was a bit skeptical when reading about the Trailer Valet ! But, I purchased the XL version with the 2-15/16" version and moved my 28 foot, dual wheel enclosed racing trailer with ease. I still can't believe how easily it worked. The custom trailer weighed 6500 pounds and inside of it was my racing Corvette Z06 that weighed another 3,100 pounds, so the Trailer Valet moved a total of 9600 pounds without any difficulty. My only advice is to use the Valet slowly with either one of two drills, a battery powered one or a model that is plugged into an electrical outlet. The latter has more torque and one has to keep the long electrical extension cord moved out of the way. I hardily recommend this wonderful Valet XL !! 343315

          I can't give it anything less than five stars as it does exactly what it is supposed to do and does it well! I was really surprised at how well it moved my tandem axle dump trailer into it's spot past a gas meter and post with only a couple inches to spare. Backing it into that spot is something I did not want to try because I cannot see the gas meter at all until I am around the corner with my truck. For fear of tearing out the gas meter I chose to go this route and am very happy i did. Hooking up and using the Velet XL was a little awkward at first but once I got use to what I was doing it works great and is pretty simple to use! I want to add that this is my second order from etrailer and like the first, I am highly pleased with the ease of ordering and the speed of delivery! 268282

          We've owned the TVXL for about a year now. A couple of comments: 1. It is heavier than I expected (interpret this as "very well built"). 2. It would move the trailer on our gravel driveway only with a lot of effort - the tires kept slipping on the gravel. We've had our driveway asphalted and the TVXL is proving very capable of moving the trailer. I use an 18v cordless drill and can maneuver it up and down a slight incline with no issues. 3. The brake is very solid - so much so that I can stop on an incline and leave the trailer in place while I place the chocks. I'm very happy with this product and would recommend one as long as you have an asphalt/concrete drive, or a very well compacted gravel drive. 419143

          OK, first and foremost. Yes, this is an expensive product. But let me be honest... If you have a camper or trailer that you want to get into a tight spot... the trailer Valet XL is for you. I have a 20 foot camper that has Qty 2, 20lb propane tanks and size 27 battery on the neck of the trailer, so I couldn't fit the side mountable trailer valet. I just used the hitch ball XL for the first time yesterday to move my camper through a very tight gate to the side of my house. It was slow and steady going, but easy as can be. There is a 5 minute learning curve. But it's a sure thing, versus trying to thread the needle with the the camper through the gate with the truck. Well worth the price. 270489

          I purchased the Trailer Valet to move my car trailer with my car loaded in my garage. The trailer moves very well with the hand crank and with the 18 volt drill and also in both fast and slow positions. The only problem I have is that while you are using the drill and the handle drops a little the brake is activated and I almost broke my wrist. The steer/brake handle does not stay in the locked up position but falls down when the handle is held on tight. 323924

          Works ok. I have a 27' 2000 Fleetwood Prowler Travel Trailer. It is pretty heavy. The dolly held up the tongue weight no problem. It's a tough product. However, it wasn't able to get the traction needed to move the trailer in grass. I am planning on getting 2 lengths of 2x10 lumber and screw 3.5" screws through them all over and then put grip tape on top of each. This way I can use the boards in the grass in an alternating fashion as I move the trailer. The nails should hold the boards in place. The grip tape should help the dolly's wheels get traction. We will see... 318420

          This works great! I was a little skeptical of moving my 6000# camper with a tongue weight of nearly 900 pounds, but I had to try something. I store my camper at home and have to pull straight in given my busy street and the build of my driveway. I'm using this to spin (slowly - like a 10 point turn) a double axle, 30 footer so I can pull it straight out for the next use. Again, I go slowly - but the XL seems to have little issue getting the job done. I hope this thing lasts! 250607

          I use this Valet XL to locate my 21 foot travel trailer into it's winter resting spot behind the house. Because of the location and trees it is impossible to do with the truck. The Valet does a great job backing across my gravel drive, but I have about 30 feet of lawn to go across. The tires have a tendency to slip on the grass. My solution to this problem was to lay down sheets of 3/4 inch plywood for wheels to ride across. Would not hesitate to recommend this Valet XL. 403729

          This is a fabulously affordable device. I have used it to maneuver my 10,700 lb. travel trailer [1000 lb. hitch weight] in places where I could not fit my crew cab, standard bed Pickup. Fits easily into the pass through storage. Can be used with a battery-powered drill [adapter included] but operates easily with the hand crank. Caution: make certain the tires are properly inflated and do not attempt to move maximum weight on inclines. 377368

          Seemed like a great idea but it does not handle the weight as advertised. Also the drill attachment first time I used it got stuck and I am unable to remove it. I used it once and never did again. I tried to get help from etrailer but no help no returns no warranty. One of those things that I just ended up losing a bunch of money on. It should be ok if you have a small trailer or boat but not 1000lb TW for sure. 454757

          I have a 24' travel trailer that weighs 6,500lbs and a tongue weight of 600lbs. The Trailer Valet XL worked great!!! Backed my 8' wide trailer down my 10' wide side yard with no problem, easily maneuvering around my gas meter. Very maneuverable and easy to use. Well worth the money. It comes with a drill attachment, but did not need to use it. It does have an integrated brake, but I would not rely on that. Great product. 260422

          The Trailer Valet XL is just what we needed to move our 22' (27' total length) travel trailer around a tight corner next to our garage. I was impressed that something this size could move it with little effort. I also appreciate its portability if needed. The one minor complaint for a 4 star rating has to do with me being 6'3" and the heigth of the handles (I am bent over quit a bit to operate the unit). 287989


          Comments

          I still am very pleased with the Trailer Valet. I carry it wherever we travel since some of the older state campgrounds have sites that are difficult to back into due to narrow roads, tight openings flanked by trees, etc.This August I even used it during our annual family campout over 35 family members with 10 trailers to fit three of the trailers front to back onto one drive-through site! This would have been impossible using vehicles that would have been “trapped” in-between.

          Does the job, it would be easier if I didn't have to bend over but really effective for moving in tight spaces. Seems to be well built. I thought using a drill would be very useful but for short moves like I have under 20' the crank seems easier. Happy with the purchase so far, it's not cheap but what might take me 15 minutes to do with my vehicle takes 5 minutes with this. I'd buy again. 248475

          Had some troubles at first getting the handle to unlock, but after calling customer service we got up and running. This item is genius. We had it up and running and we were pulling our trailer out of a super small/tight spot. Amazing. I did see people complain of tires exploding. I can only think they didn't inflate the tires enough. Ours were at about 40 and they should be around 80-85. 422630

          Received the trailer dolly on Thursday and used it that day it worked great with the boat that weighs 6000lbs as for my inclosed trailer that was loaded at the time ( 10000 lbs) it worked okay. The tires on the dollie were almost flat that made it hard to turn but it moved the trailer. If they ever make solid tires for it I will definitely buy them. Both trailers were moved on concrete. 339083

          I'ved used it about 10 times on my 3,000 lb trailer. I bought it because my trailer is stored in a tight area alongside my house. Be careful on slopes since the wheel can lose traction, insufficient weight and the single tire will slide. The trailer valet xl works fine and is solidly built. Make sure to read the manual and follow the instructions. 435659

          Extremely disappointed in Trailer Valet XL. It did not perform well. Poor traction. No matter how tight I tried to attach the ball to the tongue, it wasn't enough.

          It works. My 18 volt drill does not have enough power to move the dolly. The axle nut fell off and wheel while moving my trailer.

          • How to Move and Park a Trailer without Using a Vehicle
          • I do have a solution for you but there are no front mount trailer hitches available for the 2003 Honda Element. What I recommend is a Trailer Valet XL trailer dolly such as # TVXL2 which has a 2 inch ball or # TVXL25 which has a 2-5/16 inch ball. These are two-speed dollies that will allow you to accurately move and position the trailer, even by yourself, without having to use a vehicle. Depending on the length of your driveway you would probably want to use low gear. To make it easier...

          • Can the Trailer Valet XL Be Used on Gravel Inclines
          • If the incline is slight and the gravel isn't super deep the Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25 would work. But if you have a steep driveway and/or deep gravel the wheels of the Valet are going to spin. In the video I attached a link to we show the unit being used in gravel. We also show it being used to move up a relatively steep incline. This does also have an internal brake that is demoed in the video I mentioned. When you stop cranking the handle the brake activates.

          • As long as your trailer isn't loaded to max capacity when you park it, I recommend the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive. This easy to use trailer dolly comes with a hand crank and a drill attachment. This dolly has a 1000 lb tongue weight capacity and a gross trailer weight capacity of 10,000 lbs. The hitch ball height is adjustable from 19-1/4 inches to 20-1/4 inches. This system allows you to drive and steer with minimal effort and you have the choice of high and low...

          • Recommended Trailer Valet XL For 2008 Fleetwood Niagara Pop-Up Camper Trailer
          • The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL25 and Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL2 are basically the same part just with different hitch ball size to match your trailer coupler. The 1,000 lb rating is for tongue weight, so your 2008 Fleetwood Niagara will be easily compatible. If you have two trailers with different couplers, the hitch ball can be purchased separately. They are #...

          • Recommendations for Easily Moving Around a Log Splitter on a Trailer
          • A swivel jack could work though it will likely not be as stable as you would like and would not make the log splitter that easy to move. What I recommend is a trailer dolly. We have some basic trailer dollies such as # MT70225 that would work for you. Or for something that will make moving the trailer even easier I recommend the Trailer Valet XL, # TVXL25 for a 2-5/16 inch ball, or # TVXL2 for a 2 inch ball. Any of the dolly options means that you will not have to permanently mount anything...

          • Can the Ball Size of the Trailer Valet XL Be Changed Easily from 2-5/16 inch to 2 inch
          • To convert your Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25 to a 2 inch ball you would need the part # TVBB2 which will allow you to easily replace the base with a new ball that is 2 inches. You would be able to easily go back to the larger ball size as well. The Trailer Valet XL can handle small inclines pretty easily but a lot of the traction is going to depend on the tongue weight of the trailer and the type of ground you are traveling over.

          • Part Needed to Change 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball to 2 Inch Hitch Ball on Trailer Valet XL
          • To provide a 2 inch hitch ball for your Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25 that came with a 2-5/16 inch ball, you can use the 2 Inch Hitch Ball for Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVHB2. This part number will provide you with a new 2 inch diameter ball for your dolly. The bases for the 2 inch ball and 2-5/16 inch ball are the same, so you can swap out one diameter ball for the other. My contact at Trailer Valet says it will just take a good wrench to remove the 2-5/16 inch ball and install...

          • Availability of Pintle Adapter for Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly TVXL25
          • It sounds like your military trailer uses a pintle style coupler such as # 63012. Trailer Valet does not offer an adapter for using this type of trailer with their XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25. The main reason is that military surplus trailers will tend to have much higher tongue weight (TW) than typical agricultural or recreational trailers. This is simply a result of their very strong heavy-duty construction. The XL Trailer Dolly is rated for up to 1000-lbs of TW. Your trailer could easily...

It should have no probelem overcoming the 1 inch lip on the entrance to your garage.

          • How to Make a Trailer Easier to Move By Hand
          • I believe I have just what you are looking for, or at least close. Take a look at the spare tire carrier and dolly bracket # DL22144. You can mount an 8 to 12 inch tire on it with 4 or 5 bolt mounting pattern and it can be used as a dolly. But it doesn't pivot like a caster. Another option is to use an actual trailer dolly such as # MT70225. It is limited to 600 pounds tongue weight and as far as gross trailer weight it depends on how much you are able to push/pull around with the dolly....

          • Trailer Valet XL Recommendation to Maneuver Trailer with 720 lbs Tongue into Parking Spot
          • I may have a different kind of solution for you, but based on the tongue weight of your trailer none of the front hitches we offer for your 2010 Toyota Tundra would work. The Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25 is a great way to move trailer's around that have less than 1,000 lbs tongue weight like yours. The crank on the side of allows you to power the jack's wheels so that you can move the trailer around and then the handle allows you to steer it.

          • How to Keep Wheels from Spinning or Slipping on Trailer Valet 5X
          • The Trailer Valet 5X, # STC-V211 is a jack that is mounted to your trailer with a bolt-on bracket and therefore, is designed to be used with just the one trailer to which it is attached. It does not come equipped with the ball base, so a ball cannot be mounted or added to the 5X. The Trailer Valet XL differs from the 5X because it is not a permanent jack, but a trailer dolly which is portable and can be used on multiple trailers. They offer it with a 2" Ball, # TVXL2, or with a 2-1/2"...

          • Will Trailer Valet LX Work on a Trailer with Surge Brakes
          • The Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25 would work on a trailer with surge brakes. But when you are backing the trailer up you may find that the brakes of the trailer want to engage if you are trying to back up a hill. If you have a manual lockout on the actuator you would want to engage it. Under most circumstances the brakes would not want to engage.

          • Trailer Valet XL Minimum Hitch Ball Height
          • The lowest height for the hitch ball on the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL2 (or the # TVXL25 with the larger hitch ball) is 19-1/4 inches at the top of the hitch ball, so you'd be a little tongue high when moving your Scamp Camper. The extra 3-1/2 inches will bring the back end of your camper down, so you will want to account for that when moving the camper with this unit.

This system is chain operated and you can choose between high and low gear. It includes a drill attachment to make it even easier to drive the gears and steer your trailer.

          • Trailer Valet Reason For Pneumatic Tires Versus Solid Wheels
          • The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL25 uses pneumatic tires. There is not a version that has solid wheels. My contact at trailer valet said they have no plans of making a version with solid wheels because it wouldn't allow the traction for movement and braking needed and the weight capacity would be greatly reduced. The issues that some have had with the pneumatic tires is operator error. The unit has to be in motion to turn...

This trailer dolly has an integrated drive system that allows you to easily move your trailer. The dual posi-traction wheels help you to maneuver in tight spaces. I've attached a couple of videos that will show you how easy it is to use. Trailer Valet also makes a version that comes with a 2 5/16" ball, # TVXL25.

          • Recommendation for Moving a Trailer Since Wheels are Not Available on Powered A-Frame Jacks
          • Electric A-Frame trailer jacks generally do not come with wheels or have options for wheels. The reason is that the wheels are rated much lower than the jack. So for example if a wheel were used on jack # BD500200 the capacity would be limited to the 1,000 pounds of the wheel even though the jack is rated for 4,000 pounds. A better option would be to use whatever jack you want and then use a trailer dolly such as # TVXL2 or # TVXL25. Both of these models are chain-driven and have high...

          • Will the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly have Traction and Not Sink in when Used on Grass
          • The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25 has 2 rubber wheels so as far as traction there isn't anything better! Whether or not they sink into the ground depends on the tongue weight of the trailer and the permeability of the ground. The tongue weight on a 2,000 pound boat trailer is minimal so no problem there. If it was sand or loose soil then it could sink in but regular dirt and grass like in your yard won't be a problem (unless you have moles digging tunnels in your yard!).

          • Can Wheel Be Mounted On Fastway Flip Automatic Fold-Up Jack Foot
          • The Fastway Flip Automatic Fold-Up Jack Foot is not designed to have a wheel or caster mounted to it. It is used to set a trailer up for storage or help when you need to install weight distribution spring bars. If you install a wheel on this, it would void the warranty and I am not sure what the result would be if you tried to maneuver your trailer with this system. To find the right size you need to measure the distance from the bottom of your outside jack tube to the ground. If that...

The appearance will vary depending on how the photography was done and on the size and type of viewing device (PC screen vs. Smartphone). The 5X is rated for 500-lbs Trailer Valet also offers higher-rated versions, parts # TVXL2 and # TVXL25, each of which has a 1000-lb tongue weight rating. These units are indeed finished in black powder coat.

For example, the MaxxTow Round Swivel Trailer Jack # MT70149 features a 1,500 pound lift capacity and dual thermoplastic wheels that will provide support and easy maneuverability. This can be bolted to trailer tongues that are up to 4 inches tall. It has a retracted bracket...
