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

Infographic shows the gradients and surface types on which the Trailer Jack XL works best

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.

Best thing ever. I can move my trailer in and out of tight spaces and even store it with the hitch just feet from the fence. As a disabled vet I needed something to help me move my trailer easily without needing help from anyone else. The trailer valet allowed me to disconnect and move the trailer for storage next to my house in minutes. No other product at this price point could have done this.

The product makes moving my trailer fairly simple and can turn it around in a dime. Be careful and make sure you have a strong hold of you drill. I had someone help me and despite the warning injured their hand. As a disable vet with mobility and back issues this product has been amazing in allowing me some freedom.

I purchased the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly.  I have used it once to get a 22 foot 9,800 lbs. rated  GVWR utility trailer into the cover storage slot and it did accomplish the goal. There was operator error, one problem on the black top had a slight angle up to the concrete storage area. Once on the flat concrete, the dolly was not needed it was so smooth and flat it was easy to move the 2,500 lb empty trailer but up that slope was harder than it should have been. What is needed is videos on YouTube on best practices on how best to push a trailer around with a slight incline. That incline is trying to force the trailer back down the slope the dolly brake stopped that downhill motion. Holding the handle up to release the brake and what height the dolly needs to be set at is all trial and error for the first time. How to adjust the tow Dolly height to ensure that enough tongue in on the dolly but not too much. I have a bigger trailer when empty weighs 11,000 lbs. empty but has a tongue weight of 2,000 lbs. so this device is rated too small for moving the other Toyhauler trailer. With a YouTube video online I’m sure the first-time problems I experienced would have been minimized.

I only used it once, and even though it showed on the video as easy to use it’s not. This utility trailer empty at the Max is 2,500 lbs the RV lot has a concrete parking slot under the covered parking feeding up to the concrete is asphalt. Once the unit is connected to the trailer using a 2 516 hitch ball receiver and the spanner wrench is used to tighten up the plate under the trailer tongue, the Valet will not stay directly under the ball receiver, it wants to drive the trailer with the valet at a large angle. With the valet pushing up a slight incline its at an angle so pulling up on the handle is difficult. If you don’t pull up the handle hard enough the brakes are set. But as you pull up on the brake handle the angle gets worse. My guess is that it’s at a 30 to 35-degree angle from the hitch ball to the rubber tire. So you pull up on the brake handle as your pushing the trailer up the slight incline holding on to the handle and the drill motor while steering the trailer into the slot. My 28 year old son was holding the handle up to release the brakes and the drill motor, while I’m pushing and steering the trailer into the slot. Once the double axle 22 ft trailer tires are on the flat concrete it gets a lot easier, but by then over half of the trailer is into the RV slot. It is not easy to use the brake handle operation is the biggest problem if you only use the handle to steer it would work better you still need the brakes on the tire to stop the unintended movement.

We tried to use it on our trailer and although it worked fine on a flat dry surface, we couldn't use it for the purpose we bought it - to get the trailer into our storage unit which had an incline. Also, the traction wasn't good where the pavement was wet. We ended up renting a different storage unit that we could back up into with our truck, so we haven't had a chance to use the Dolly again.



by:

I live in the last house on a dead-end street with no room to back my 21 foot travel trailer onto the street because the street ends at my driveway. I have had to back the trailer about 125 yards when I return from a trip so that I can have the trailer situated correctly in the driveway. Backing down the street between parked cars is not fun and highly stressful. I saw the Trailer Valet XL online and it looked like just the solution for my problem. Now I can pull into the driveway normally when pulling the trailer, unhitch and move my truck out of the way, and use the Trailer Valet to easily maneuver the trailer, turning it 180 degrees, backing it into its space, ready for the next trip.The automatic brake when you release the handle is fantastic, because I operate the valet by myself and I have to stop several times while using it to get my bearings of where the trailer is in reference to the fence and the driveway edge. I use a RYOBI 18v drill that I already had. I don't think it would be as easy just using the crank handle because the gear reduction is so great that it would take a lot of cranking by hand to move it and would be more likely to strain my back. I'm 62 and have no problem moving the 3200 pound trailer around. Thanks!

Great. Just ordered a 2 inch ball for my boat trailer. Can’t wait to start parking it more easily.

Still working great moving a 9,000 lb camper down a winding, wooded drive.

Duke

Still working great after a year. A couple times, it felt like it was maybe struggling after fully loading camper for 2 week trip and fresh water full. Hasnt failed me yet!



by:

This has worked out perfectly for us!
You
do have to follow the directions tightening the lock plate up against the hitch to get a solid attachement. I did read some other reviews where users didn't understand how to properly attach. When attached properly the hitch easily holds our 5000 pound trailer with ~400 pound tongue weight.
We have a small sport court that we pull the trailer up onto and then unhook and sneak the truck out around and back the way we came in, then use the Dolly to spin the trailer around to allow us to get the truck out and avoid an impossible backing up challenge. The back yard is NOT big enough to turn around while hooked up to the Truck!
We first bought a lightweight electric dolly from different supplier and although rated for the job it totally failed. The XL Chain Drive manual dolly has done the job.



by:

This tool has been the perfect solution for parking our 25 foot travel trailer in our carport. Doing so requires a 90 degree turn, which we could never do with our tow vehicle. We don’t have far to go, so have just been using the hand crank rather than the power drill option. It’s amazing how easily the valet moves the trailer.



by:

The trailer valet worked great to help me make a sharp turn and put my 27 foot travel trailer into my shop for the winter. But last spring when I brought it out there is a slight downhill and I needed to turn it and it wouldn't turn so I put the handle down to stop it and it wouldn't stop. I could hear some gears inside grinding. Fortunately my wife was there and threw a block of wood in front of the tire and that stopped it. It was headed for about a 5 foot bank and my neighbors fence. I was then able to maneuver it and make the turn I needed to. The hill it was on was very slight so I wouldn't recommend this for going down any kind of hill unless you have someone to help you, especially if you need to make a turn. I think the tires are to small to grip the asphalt it was on to help it turn. In a couple of weeks we will be putting it back in the shop for the winter so you may want to check back with me then.

Thank you for your feedback. The Trailer Valet is designed to be used on level surfaces and while it may be able to handle a slight incline or decline I would not recommend it with the size of your trailer.



by:

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.



by:

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!



by:

etrailer gets 5 stars for the quick shipping. The product was sent out the same day I ordered. Can't beat that. The product is disappointing. The tires are so small that they dig into gravel, even on a level surface. FWIW, I have a travel trailer that pushed 4k lbs with a tongue weight I'd estimate at close to 600 lbs. I was able to move the trailer using plywood. Just had to keep in mind, "Patience, Grasshopper, Patience."



by:

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

The ball is to large for the trailer hook up.I will need to find a ball that will fit, I'm opened for suggestions

It sounds like your trailer coupler uses a 2-inch ball. You can use part # TVBB2 to swap the ball out on the dolly to a 2-inch ball.

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.



by:

We bought this for our Jayco 224BH which is about 4,600 lbs dry.
What I had a problem with is actually listed on the item’s description as a risk in the first place- and that is traction on an unpaved road. So I’m going to leave that part out of the Pros and Cons because I knew of that risk going in.
Pros
Trailer Valet has excellent customer service. They have an online support ticket system and responses are fast. I did have an issue when I first bought it, and they sent a new part right away.
The operation is smooth but you MUST have a strong hold on the crank or drill and the braking/steering handle. If you do not, say goodbye to your wrists. The how to videos make this quote clear. Watch them on either etrailer or Trailer Valet’s website.
The two gear ratios (27:1 and 11:1) are very useful.
The unit is solid and well constructed.
Cons
It would be nice if it was about 6-12 inches taller so you are not hunched over.
Mine came with a bent cylinder so the pawl was jammed and could not disengage from the detents in the gear, which meant the brakes were always on. Like I said in the Pros, Trailer Valet sent me a new piece under warranty and their customer service was awesome and very responsive.

Overall, I would buy this again. I had a hell of a time moving on an unpaved road but it would have been impossible without it and I couldn’t spend $2k on the one with tracks.

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 !!



by:

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.



by:

When I ordered this I didn’t really know what to expect. I recently purchased a larger travel trailer and I have to park it in a super congested, tight space. This thing did way better than I thought it would and made my life so much easier. The drill attachment is awesome. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the tires don’t do very well on rough or uneven surfaces which would have been nice since I park it in an older storage area with old, worn out asphalt and got caught on some uneven ground a couple of times. Would definitely recommend this product though



by:

I think it was pretty amazing, I was very skeptical. The spot I needed to get the 27', 6500lb trailer in was very tight, 2 ........90 degree turns to get it next to my shop next to my garage. I just used the hand crank and actually had to switch off to the opposite side because the spot was so tight. Ability to switch the crank handle to the oposite side is fantastic.



by:

First off it was delivered fast!
First
used the crank handle and works ok. Using the drill attached is better.its not easy to turn a tandem axle trailer but it does work well moving my 4500lb. Dump trailer.



by:

this would only work on a pool table flat surface. a normal slab with any amount of slope for drainage makes this useless. It would only work to move heavy trailers in a showroom that was perfectly flat. would love to sell it to someone....



by:

Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but it seems very well made and was packed carefully.



by:

Trailer valet XL did everything it promised. Heavy duty and good construction. Moved my 25ft trailer in my pole barn with ease. The brake is the only thing that can be tricky



by:

Great tool for the job. Used it once so far, pulled it into my home driveway, and used it to move the trailer to the side of the driveway. worked well especially using a drill gun.



by:

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.

After having this for a year and using it several times it is still doing the job I want it to do. The only thing that I have found to be a problem is that it is very hard to turn the valet at a 90 degree angle to the item moving and move it. If I only try to to do about 75 degree turn into the place where it will be stored it works awesome. Would still highly recommend this to anyone having to put a trailer in a tight spot.

  • Using Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly to Park Airstream Safari
    Yes, the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25 will be able to maneuver your trailer into place on the side of your lot. It has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and gross trailer weight of 10,000 lbs so the Airstream Safari won't be a problem. Gravel can be a challenge for any dolly so I would definitely recommend putting down a board like you said to help get it over the gravel.

  • Tire Issues With Trailer Valet Systems
    The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL25 and the other Trailer Valet products continue to use pneumatic tires. Solid tires would not give you the functionality and traction that you need when moving a trailer. Just like any tires, when you hit the sidewall it can have a flat, or it you force it to the side without moving it forward or backwards it can break the bead seat. We have not had any issues here when they have been used...

  • Can Trailer Valet XL Push and Pull a Trailer to Move It
    The crank handle of the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25 can be spun in either direction so it could push or pull a trailer if needed. In either direction it works just as good.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Valet Not Working On Compacted Dirt
    The Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25 can work on a variety of surfaces. The operating manual states "The Trailer Valet is for use only on paved surfaces or compacted gravel and soils that are free of debris." The issue is often whether or not it will sink in the ground and that depends on the weight of the trailer and the permeability of the ground. If the compacted dirt is soft like sand or loose soil then it could sink in but lawn dirt and grass like in your yard usually won't be a problem....

  • Is the Trailer Valet XL the Best Option to Move a 3,000 lbs Trailer 50 Feet Through Grass and Gravel
    The Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25 was designed for situations just like yours so it will work great for your application. The dual wheels provide a wider footprint than a regular jack wheel which means it is less likely to sink into soft ground. Also it comes with an attachment for a variable speed drill should you get tired of cranking the handle. But at 50 feet you probably wouldn't get tired of cranking! The slight turn is not a problem either. I have linked a video review of this unit for you.

  • Could the Trailer Valet XL be Used on Plywood Laid on Top of Soft Soil
    As long as the plywood didn't break or slip the Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25 would work fine on that surface. It has rubber tires which help with traction and Trailer Valet has told us that this can be used on gravel, dirt, and grass so you'd have to use your best judgment. I attached a review video for more info on this product as well.

  • Does Current Generation of Trailer Valet XL Use Run Flat Style Tires
    All of the current models of the Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25 have the never-flat style of tires on them. That's what we have now as well. They went to this after having some trouble with the inflatable tires of the previous generation.

  • Does Trailer Valet XL Have Inflated or Solid Tires
    The Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25 that you referenced has been redesigned a couple times. One of the big changes they made was they went from inflated tires that had had the potential to lose air to solid tires that you never have to worry about. We don't recommend using this if the trailer is on a major angle or incline as it's easier to lose control of the trailer and cause a safety issue. This performs the best on mostly level ground that is paved but it does work beyond that as well...
    view full answer...
  • What is Capacity of Trailer Valet XL TVXL25
    The weight capacity of the Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25 that you referenced is 10,000 lbs total trailer weight and 1,000 lbs tongue weight. Judging by the size of your 17 foot Mako you'd easily be under it's capacity and would be fine.

  • How Does the Travel Valet Work in Gravel
    It honestly depends on how tightly packed the gravel is. For very, very loose gravel, the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # TVXL25 will be tough to navigate; but if the gravel is at least somewhat packed, then the Valet XL will traverse well.

    Since you are looking to move a little over 2,000 lbs the Trailer Valet # TVXL25 is a great option especially when using the drill attachment. The issue arises in your specific application moving that trailer up a 30 degree incline about 82 feet. I can't confirm that the Trailer Valet # TVXL25 will work for this and the manufacturer does not recommend it on any incline. You can see in the attached video how difficult it could be.

If you did this it SHOULD work fine and not tilt like you mentioned. I'd inspect the trailer too to make sure nothing was bent or damaged that would cause this. If you check out the link to the attached review video for this you'll see how to tighten down the collar of this kit around the 5 minute mark.

  • Is Version of Trailer Valet that Has Solid Tire More Reliable than Inflated
    The current version of the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25 has solid tires. Trailer Valet actually does not offer the version that held air at all anymore as the solid tires are just better overall without downside. Trailer Valet does not state how long the tires should last but we've also not had any issues and would not predict any either.

  • Can the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly be Used in Grass
    The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly part # TVXL25 should work for you. It has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs so your 6,000 lb trailer won't be an issue and the hitch ball connection will allow for 90 degree turns.
