Trailer Valet RVR5 Electric Trailer Mover

Moving your RV, boat trailer, or cargo trailer can be an arduous task. Manual trailer movers and dollies require you to bend over and move the trailer either by hand or by turning a manual hand crank. Electric trailer movers remove the physical exertion, but they still require you to manually steer your trailer with a handle, which requires strength and a second person to be a spotter.

The remote-controlled RVR robot removes those hassles and frustrations. With the RVR5, you can move your trailer with the push of a button. No physical exertion is required. Thanks to the wireless, handheld remote controller, moving your trailer is now a 1-person job. The remote control's 40' range lets you freely walk around your trailer while relocating it, ensuring that you have the best viewing angle as you go around corners and maneuver your trailer into tight spaces.

Operation with the Wireless Remote Controller

Trailer Valet RVR5 Wireless Remote Controller

The RVR's wireless remote controller has a simple layout featuring forward/back and right/left buttons. Once your trailer's coupler is secured on the RVR's hitch ball, hold down the "up" arrow button to move forward, and hold down the "down" arrow to move backward. To turn the RVR, hold down the "up" or "down" button while also pressing either the "left" or "right" arrow button, depending on the direction you want to move your trailer.

The RVR can be used to move your trailer up slopes or inclines of no more than 5 degrees. When using the RVR robot to move your trailer up an incline, the RVR must push the trailer up the slope. When going down an incline, the RVR must lead, or pull, the trailer down the slope.

 RVR5 Remote Battery Indicator

With a full charge, the RVR has a runtime of approximately 30 minutes, which allows for plenty of time to relocate your trailer. The remote control includes a battery indicator that will let you know when the RVR's battery is running low and needs to be recharged. To conserve the battery, the unit automatically shuts itself off after being idle for 3 minutes. The charger is included and connects to standard 2-prong outlets. The unit takes 5 to 6 hours to fully recharge.

360 Degrees of Motion

Trailer Valet RVR5 Motorized Trailer Mover

The RVR5 is built with 4 planetary gear motors that can move both single- and tandem-axle trailers. The independently operated motors allow for 360 degrees of motion, providing you with complete control and maneuverability when moving your trailer.

Heavy-Duty Rubber Treads

Trailer Valet RVR5 Rubber Treads

The heavy-duty caterpillar treads allow the RVR to handle a variety of terrain, including asphalt, gravel, grass, and dirt. The 2" wide rubber treads enable the RVR to move easily from one type of surface to another.

Hooking Your Trailer up to the RVR

Trailer Valet RVR5 Install

With the included base tower and interchangeable 2" and 2-5/16" hitch balls, it's easy to hook your trailer up to the RVR5. Just connect your coupler to the RVR's hitch ball, and then use the included spanner wrench to tighten the locking nut and secure it against the coupler. This will ensure that the ball doesn't slip out of the coupler during operation. Then you're ready to go.

Video Transcript for Trailer Valet RVR5 Remote-Controlled Trailer Dolly Review

Randy: Hey guys, Randy here with etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the RVR from Trailer Valet. This is a really neat product. It allows you to move your trailer around. We don't have to use a truck anymore. So, this is going to help out in a lot of different situations.You can see here, we needed to get our trailer tucked over, really close in the corner.

This allows us to do that very precisely. This is also going to be good for those events where you need to maybe get your trailer along the side of your house to a back shed, or even for landscape guys that need to get a trailer or mulch around back and they don't want to use their truck to do that. This provides a really good solution for all of those needs and it can also help, if you're preventing from bringing a truck in with the diesel or the gas fumes that fill up a shop, that can get pretty overbearing, pretty quickly. This really solves all those problems for us.The unique design of the RVR has a pivot point located right here. So, this can rotate 360 degrees.

We can move it in any direction. So we can move it on any axis that we want and really, it gives us very, very fine tuned controls on exactly where our trailers going to be. Now with that type of control and the remote offering a 40 foot range, it's going to turn a two person job into a one person job. No longer are you going to have to be yelling back and forth to your buddy or hopping out of your truck to go back and check. We can operate this from right here at the front or anywhere around the trailer that we want.Now, the battery is built into the unit and it is rechargeable.

We've got a charging port right here and it's going to come with the attachments you need to get that charger plugged in. Now, we brought our trailer in about 150 feet and it took us roughly five minutes to do that. In most situations, Trailer Valet says that this is going to have enough capacity in the battery to operate for at least 30 minutes.Now the RVR's going to be available in three different weight capacities. We have the RVR 3, RVR 5 and the RVR 9. This is a look at the three.

It has a 3500 pound tongue weight rating. It's connection point here is going to use a shoe that slides into a bracket you mount to your trailer. You're going to use a pin to secure that in place. We're also going to have a kit put together that offers the ball mount that you have on the 5 and the 9. So, if you'd prefer that or if you want both, go with the kit that way you can mount the bracket to one of your trailers and have the ball mounts for use on multiple trailers.This is the RVR 5. We've been testing this one out and the 3 today. They both work really well. Now the 5 is going to be rated for up to 5500 pounds of gross trailer weight. It and the 3 are rated for 600 pounds of tongue weight. The RVR 9, it's going to be the same size as the 5, it's just rated for more gross trailer weight at 9,000 pounds and more tongue weight at 1,000.We've tested the RVR's out on a lot of different surfaces. We've been through soft gravel outside here, exposed aggregate concrete, regular concrete, even on a more finished, more slick floor like what we have in here. We really haven't had any issues at all with it slipping or leaving any marks on this kind of a floor. We generally want to keep that pretty nice. These tracks, you can see, really help to give us excellent traction and by design, they don't really scuff up our floors at all like what we get a lot of times with trucks. Now, while you're generally going to be using these on relatively flat surfaces, it is rated for use on a very minor grade. The one this to keep in mind if you're trying to go up a grade, you want to be pushing your trailer uphill, or pulling it downhill.Now, if you get the RVR 3 with the kit, the 5 or the 9, they're all going to come with two different sized balls. We're going to have the 2 inch for your smaller trailers, the 2 5/16ths for your larger trailers. Now, you'll also notice a pin right here. That pin can be removed and as we jack up the trailer, the valet is going to separate here. This is going to stay attached to our coupler. So, if you use multiple trailers and you move them around quite often, might be a great idea just to leave this attached and pick up an additional ball for your other trailers so you just drop them in, pin them in, and be ready to go.Now in my opinion, I really like these RVRs. I think they're really, really well built. As we put weight on the top, we don't hear any of the connections creaking or cracking or anything like that. When it comes to whether I would purchase this or not, I think if you had the need for it, it would be a good investment. Especially if you had the funds available, they're kind of pricey but I think the aggravation that it would save would definitely be worth it. There are other options in trailer moving out there, the Trailer Valet XL is a good option. It's something that you can use a power drill on the side of it. The thing I don't like about those, you've got to bend over to operate them. They have the XL Pro which incorporates a handle on it, quite a bit less expensive than one of these. But in using that one, I didn't feel like I had the versatility that I have with this one. That one took a lot more effort. You kind of had to hold that handle as you we're making the sharper turns. With this one, you're just hitting a couple buttons.Now, to make the connection to your trailer, you're going to need your spanner wrench, your remote, and you want to be sure you have the appropriate size ball installed. We'll come to the front, we're going to turn the power on. We'll just hit the power button there. We'll have our green light come on. Then to get our remote synced to it, we're going to hit the forward button, green light there comes on. Then at that point, it's going to be ready for use. We're just going to drive this directly under the coupler.Once we've got that down and on, we want to latch our coupler. We're going to lift our trailer slightly. That's going to lift up on the RVR slightly. At that point, we want to turn this large ring til it comes up and mates with our coupler. Now, you see this plate here, ideally that's going to be positioned with this flange towards the back. If that won't work for your coupler, you can turn this towards the front as the second option. If it still won't work, you can remove it completely. With that having now made contact, we'll take our spanner wrench, that's going to go in, we'll just finalize tightening that. It's time to lower our jack.Now, with the RVR connected, it's time for us to park our trailer.
