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,

I feel totally duped for buying this product. I have a 3800 lb. trailer and the product simply doesn't work. It requires an inordinate amount of weight on the tongue - so yes, it works when I have someone sit on the trailer A frame at the front! I don't think this is your fault, and it might just be something particular to my trailer (it's a 20' InTech enclosed car trailer, so not that unusual). I'll keep on buying things from etrailer (great service and great prices), but again, my honest review of this product is that I feel duped and wish I could sell it back to someone else! 720473

- TVXL25

I read the reviews and bought it anyway. Should have gone with my gut feeling. My trailer is on level ground and the trailer valet XL won’t budge my trailer. What a waste of money! I guess I’ll try to find a sucker on Craig’s List to buy it! 666830

As mentioned, the Trailer Valet works best on pavement or packed surfaces.

This trailer moving devise has been valuable in parking our camper trailer for storage inside a dry wall finished aircraft hangar. The final back in can not be done with the truck for fear of hitting the walls and causing damage to both the trailer and the walls. This product has been the perfect solution since our new trailer is too heavy to be pushed by hand. 485469

I have a tight space to put my Airstream Bambi Sport into. After much research I settled on the TVXL25 trailer dolly to help me out. After receiving the unit, I immediately gave it a try and it was amazing! It performed above my expectations. I had absolute control pulling my Airstream out and pushing it back into the storage area. The unit is designed and built well. I highly recommend this product. 482259

900 lb tongue weight, 8,000 lb trailer. The Trailer Valet XL solves all my problems regarding backing into my very narrow RV space on the side of my house. So far, and for the price, you can't beat it. 573688

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

I was really concerned that I was going to drop a little coin and not be impressed but after doing a lot of research this was seemingly the best approach for me to be able to maneuver my 24’ Starcraft hybrid trailer into a a side pad with very tight angles. Let me tell you, this may be one of the better purchases I have made. Relatively easy to use and store, this trailer valet has solved my problem. Thank you etrailer! 664455

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

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

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

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

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 have a very tight parking situation that is sloped a little and this allows me to Move the trailer out to wash and wax , rotate tires or work on the brakes etc. I haven’t tried to move it down the drive and into the street yet , next time I take it out maybe ? 585980

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

The trailer dolly helped me maximize the space on my property. I can easily move my enclosed car hauler with a vehicle inside. The trailer dolly allows me to pull the trailer in forward so I can lower the door and use my trailer as a garage. When I'm ready to hook it up to the truck and go, I simply use the dolly to back it into place. 738477

Just received and tried this out. It's built very stout and is a heavy unit. Fit up to the trailer coupler is critical and takes a little care, but based on a single use I'm impressed. 730194

The dolly has been a great addition to my trailer. We are keeping the trailer in a tight enclosed area and being able to maneuver it on a dime with the dolly has made this job a breeze. 729932

Bought to park 22 ft. trailer nosed into lot while spending winter in Arizona. Works great, works even better if you have one person push and one steering(no crank installed). Have loaned to Arizona neighbours, excellent for accurate positioning of trailers. Allowed us the option of using trailer as our garage and storage unit during the winter stay. It is a tough little unit, seems very well built. 722762

This trailer valet is an awsome machine. If you have trailers that have to be put into a tight spot this is the tool you need to get the job done. I have a 18.5 foot toy hauler and to put it in the shop for the winter, I used to use my skid steer and had to get in and out to see where the back corner was and if I was close enough to the wall. No more! Have the right tool for the job now. Thank you Odelia K for all of your help in ordering and in shipping. It arrived the day I got home. Excellent, will order from etrailer again. 720204

    The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # TVXL25 actually has a 10,000 lb trailer weight capacity and 1,000 lb tongue weight capacity.

With a heavy motor on the back of the boat, your trailer weight is not distributed evenly, and results in losing tongue weight. The mounting bracket gives you the...

  • What Is The Difference Between The Trailer Valet Trailer Dolly Models?
    Yes. The only difference between the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL25 and the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL2 is the hitch ball size. Either model can accept the other hitch ball size, but they are sold separately. You can get the other hitch ball size to go with whichever model you choose. You can use the 2" Hitch Ball w/ Base for Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly - 1,000...

  • Will the Solid Rubber Tire # TVXLSR work on the Trailer Valet XL with Pneumatic Tires?
    We do offer replacement tires for the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly, # TVXL2 (2" ball) and # TVXL25 (2 5/16" ball). The replacements will be the pneumatic Trailer Valet Tire, # TVTR & the Replacement Inner Tire, # TVIT.

  • Can Any Hitch Ball Be Used with Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly
    The 2-5/16 inch hitch ball that is included with the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25 is uniquely threaded to tighten into the base on this jack. Because of this, you likely won't be able to use your own hitch balls. If you also need a 2 inch ball, you can just add the Replacement 2 Inch Hitch Ball # TVHB2. The Drill Bit Attachment # TVDA that is also included does feature an asymmetrical design that makes it unique to this jack as well. If you were to lose the attachment, you...

  • Trailer Dolly Recommendation for Moving 5,000 lb Trailer by Hand
    Typically trailer tongue weight is between 10 and 15 percent of the total trailer weight. So for a 5,000 lb trailer the tongue weight is most likely 500 to 750 lbs. I attached an article on determining tongue weight as well for you to check out. The best dolly setup we have is the part # TVXL2 for if you have a 2 inch hitch ball or part # TVXL25 for if you have a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. Both of these have a 1,000 lb tongue weight capacity and have a crank handle that you can use to...

  • Are Replacement Parts Available For Trailer Valet That Has Been Damaged
    We do offer some replacement parts for the Trailer Valet, but it sounds like you have done some internal damage. The parts we offer are items like a crank handle # TV0006 or a Brake Cap And Steering Handle # TVBC. If there was damage done to the parts on the inside of the jack I am afraid it will need to be replaced. We do have the Trailer Valet # TVXL2, # TVXL25, and # STC-V211 if you wish to replace your Valet. If you do decide you will replace it, you can save the old one for replacement...

  • Is Rubber Tire of Extreme Off-Road Trailer Jack Solid or Inflated
    The tires of the # ORJW500D are solid rubber. It sounds like you have a Trailer Valet that has inflated tires which were known to be problematic like you mentioned. If you have a Trailer Valet XL like part # TVXL25 you can replace the tires with a solid tire like part # TVXLSR. If you have the older 5Xs though it would not fit since the solid tires are too large.

  • 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"...

  • Best Way To Move a Heavy Trailer In and Out of Parking Spaces
    I do have an option that will help you move your trailer in and out of parking spaces but both of the front mount trailer hitch receivers we have for your 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65078 and the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31023 have a maximum vertical load of 500 lbs. The tongue weight of your trailer will exceed the maximum vertical load rating of either trailer hitch therefore, I cannot recommend using...

  • Is New Base Required for Trailer Valet XL 2 Inch Ball Conversion from 2-5/16 Inch Ball?
    The base simply makes exchanging between two hitch ball options easy because no wrench is required. Since it sounds like you simply need the 2 inch ball you will just need the hitch ball # TVHB2 and not the combination with the base. This hitch ball will work perfectly in the base of your Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25.

  • Can New Rubber Tires be Added to Trailer Valet XL
    I reached out to Trailer Valet to get an answer for you, and they told me that the older Trailer Valet XL cannot swap out its pneumatic tires with the Replacement Solid Rubber Tire # TVXLSR. They went on to say that attempting to do this would remove the Valet from "warranty eligibility" which is a note I did want to pass along. So while I know it's not the info you wanted to hear, the best option really is one of the new models of Trailer Valet with the new rubber tires, Trailer Valet...

  • 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!).

  • Will The Trailer Valet XL Be Able To Push A 6000 lb Trailer Over A 1 Inch Lip At Garage?
    The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL25 or the 2 inch ball # TVXL2 have two different drive gears to make it easier to go up an incline or to overcome a lip in the concrete as you described. It should have no probelem overcoming the 1 inch lip on the entrance to your garage.

  • Recommended Trailer Dolly for 7500 lb Trailer
    For your 7500 lb concession trailer, I recommend the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive # TVXL2 for a 2 inch hitch ball or # TVXL25 for a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. This will come with a hand crank and a cordless drill attachment to make moving your trailer easy, whether fully loaded at the beginning of the day or empty at the end of the event. The very basic hand style dollies like # MT70225 or # BTTRDOLLY are only rated for trailers up to 600 lbs. Even if you were to have...

  • 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.

  • Is There a Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 1996 Ford Explorer
    I do have options for you but the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65017 that you referenced is designed for a first generation (1991-1994) Ford Explorer. There was a generation change between 1994-1995 which means it is not a direct fit for you. They did not offer a front mount trailer hitch for the second generation (1995-2003) therefore your best option would be to use the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13704 and modify it to make it work for you.

  • 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.

  • Is There a Tow Dolly that Can Move Trailer up Slight Incline
    You wouldn't want to try and move a trailer up an incline with the part # MT70881. The dolly itself would be fine but you would most likely not be able to pull that heavy of a trailer up an incline. And then if you somehow did get it going up the incline at all it would become dangerous as it would want to roll back by itself. The only dolly we have that can do inclines safely is the Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25 which has a crank and a brake built into it. This is for a coupler with a 2-5/16...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.
