Trailer Valet

When the time comes to move or align your unhitched trailer, the Trailer Valet 5X is at your service. Instead of driving your vehicle to your trailer, use this heavy-duty jack 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 5X also makes it easy to park or move your trailer into tight spots and to position it in a garage. And 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.


After hookup, just flip the Trailer Valet 5X up to store it alongside your trailer frame. Then swivel it back down for use when you arrive at your destination. Simply use the jack function to raise the trailer so you can unhook it from the ball, then lower the Trailer Valet 5X to get your trailer level and into position.


How to Operate the Trailer Valet 5X


Trailer Valet 5X Diagram

  1. The jack crank raises and lowers the trailer tongue.
  2. The hand crank powers the chain drive system and can be positioned on either side of the unit in either high or low gear.
  3. The steering handle allows you to navigate the trailer to exactly where you want it.
  4. The gears allow you to switch the hand crank to adjust for inclined and flat ground.

Chain Drive System

The Trailer Valet 5X is easy to operate. The hand-crank-powered chain drive system can be operated in either high gear or low gear, depending on the terrain. You can make operation even easier by adding a drill attachment (TVDA - sold separately), which allows you to use a cordless drill (not included) instead of the hand crank. The drive system activates the dual positraction wheels. Both wheels are engaged while the Trailer Valet 5X 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 turn the crank that powers the drive system and direct the Trailer Valet 5X with the steering handle. When you straighten the steering handle back up, the other wheel reengages and the Trailer Valet 5X drives straight again.


Brake Positions

The Trailer Valet 5X 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. Wheel chocks should still be used.


How to Install the Trailer Valet 5X


Bracket

A heavy-duty bracket clamps the jack to your trailer's tongue with the included mounting hardware. Multiple holes in the bracket allow you to adjust for trailer frames up to 6 inches tall, and the bolts are long enough to accommodate frames up to 2-3/4 inches wide. Just tighten the bolts and you're ready to use the Trailer Valet 5X.

Video Transcript for Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover Review

Today on our trailer we're going to be installing, the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover, part number stc-v211. This is a heavy-duty jack with an integrated drive function that replaces an old and ordinary jack, to allow you to move your trailer into positions or tight parking spaces. With the trailer jacks integrated drive function, will let you easily raise, lower, or move the trailer. It has a chain drive system that is easy to use by the crank handle.The automatic brake helps keep the trailer from rolling once into place. The rugged steel construction with silver-powder coat and zinc-nickel plating resist rust and corrosion. It'll fit trailer frames from 2-3/4 inches wide to 6 inches tall.

It has a lift capacity of 15 inches, and when retracted is at 9 inches, full extended 24 inches. It has a trailer tongue capacity of 500 pounds and a gear ratio on the drive system, in high speed is 5 to 1, and low speed is 14 to 1.Being our install we're going to start with the jack mounting plate. Now, here on the drivers side theres not enough room with the breakaway box battery in the way, so we're going to move it over to the passengers side. Now to secure the bracket, we use the four bolt, flat washer, split -lock washer and nuts, along with the bracket that will go on the back side of the frame. Let's go ahead and mount the bracket.

Slide the top two bolts through first to help hold it against the frame.Then I can put my bracket on the back side. Securing each one, we have the flat washer, split-lock washer, and then the nut. Note, the bracket could be mounted in the rise or drop position. We've got a lower sitting trailer, so we're going to mount it in the drop position. Now with the two top bolts in place, we can go ahead and repeat the same process with the two bottom ones.

Then we can ratchet it down, and as we ratchet it down we want to make sure we tighten down the hardware evenly, from top to bottom.Now because we're going to mount our on the passenger side, we need to rotate the shaft and then repin it. Next we'll go ahead put it on to the mounting bracket, using the pin and clip provided. Then Ill take my bolt, it will go through the bottom of the bracket and into the jack shaft plate. Here I can thread it in and tighten it down. Now with our mount in we'll go ahead and take the pin out, use the top crank handle rotate it down, and pick up the trailer.Now with our trailer valet mounted we can use our low speed grear or high speed gear to move our trailer into position.

Here we have the crank handle, you'll see it has a pre-drilled hole to fit the D10 00:03:32 in the gear. Once we start moving we'll keep the steering handle up, because in the down we're in a locked position, activating the brake function in the trailer valet. We'll pull the handle up. Now as you can see we're in our slow speed and can rotate our trailer around tight corners. Now if youre on flat level ground possibly with an unloaded trailer, you can switch to the high speed. Here we can go ahead and simulate using our valet brake. There you have it for the Trailer Valet, Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover, part number stc-v211 on our enclosed trailer. .

Fantastic jack for my needs. I have a 20 foot Lund boat which I store in my attached garage. With a nine foot door I have one inch of clearance on each side of the trailer and the driveway is slopped. In addition, the boat has to be maneuvered to one side of the garage in a limited space. For years, putting the boat in the garage was really difficult but with the trailer valet I have found the perfect solution. I simply drop the wheels and crank it into the garage. I now use my electric drill which makes it even easier. My wish list would include solid rubber or plastic wheels so I didn't have to inflate the tube type tires on a regular basis. Otherwise, a great well built product. 584395


Comments
Update: After a year of use Im still extremely pleased with my Trailer Valet. No problems and makes my boat storage so much easier. I will note that when I purchased my boat it was supposed to have a double axle trailer but knowing my storage issues my dealer ordered a heavy duty single axel. Im not sure how well the Trailer Valet would perform with a double axel trailer. However, it works great for my application.

I love it, it makes it so much easier to move my boat around on the grass without having to hook my truck up to it. Very easy to install. 647452

Works ok on flat ground but no good on an incline. I have Lowes’s 16 ft aluminum bass boat, not all that heavy. There is about a 10 degree grade up to the garage and it is very difficult to get boat up the grade and into the garage 612623

The trailer jack provides an easy means to move trailers in tight places. It folds up out of the way on the tong. One issue I have noticed is the upper crank bronze bushing is already showing excessive wear and may need replacement. Bushings were oiled often. The 3 star rating is due to durability concerns. 704737

I bought this to help make it easier to put my boat into the corner of the driveway where we keep it and get it out. My driveway is black top in fair condition, with an incline. The boat is a 23' and with the trailer is probably about 500 lbs and a tandem axle, so right at the limits of what this is rated for. The unit itself is beefy and appears to be of decent quality. The box was damaged, but there was no damage to the unit itself. I had to buy slightly longer bolts to make it work with my trailer (3" frame). Even with this heavy trailer, steering is decent, and the brake function works well. However, traction is a concern. It does not have the traction to pull the trailer up the hill at all, and can only move it to a limited extend sidways, although that has more to do with the tandem axles than anything. The gearing does make it slow to move, I could see using an attachment for a drill/electric drive would make its use significantly easier. Despite my trailer being on the high end of what should work with it, it still does a pretty decent job. If it was able to do everything I need it to, I'd rate it at 5 stars, but I rate it at 4 since it does most of it. If the boat trailer was empty or I had a single axle trailer, I think this would be perfect. 152407

I have a tandem axle boat trailer with a 21 boat. I have a need to swing the trailer to the side to line it up with the space next to the garage. Your comments about limited sideways movement are a concern to me. I have been pushing it but am getting to the age that it is very difficult to do and need something that can do it. My boat and trailer weigh about 3500 pounds. How much does yours weigh. This is my only concern about this product.

I purchased the Trailer Valet and it does the job I need it to do. My concern about the tandem axle trailer is no longer a concern. It takes a little practice to get everything in sync when making sharp turns but overall I am quite pleased with its performance. Sharp turns are the biggest challenge because of the dual axles but I am able to maneuver the tongue completely sideways. When doing so you have to be careful because the trailer tires are resisting the turn and it can roll back at you if you dont set the brake.All in all I rate it highly and look forward to many years of service from it.

Funny bought this item a year ago and believe it or just used last week for the first time, at one swap meet. Not to many people had seen one of this puppy. This thing worked great and easy to operate. I even used it at home with a loaded trailer up hill on my driveway, and went up slope with no problem. Well worth the money, built very strong for My needs glad I bought it now I can move My trailer myself! 636024

Excellent add-on to my travel trailer. No longer do I need to back up my trailer into my driveway (I pull right in and turn it around using the trailer valet). No longer backing my car up multiple times to line up the hitch to the trailer ( I use the trailer valet to move the trailer to the hitch and even to nudge the trailer to secure the ball to the trailer tongue). I have also used it to move the trailer tire onto a leveling block at the campground. My trailer is ~3000 lbs with a tongue weight of ~300 lbs. Have no trouble moving it on my concrete apron, however at the campground, I had to use a board under the tires to get the required traction the on gravel/sand. Before each use, I confirmed 85 lbs pressure in the tires by connecting a small 12V compressor with an integral pressure gauge and it works fine. While towing it stores fine on the trailer without interfering with the weight distribution bars, however, I do have to remove the bar support bracket in order to mount the Trailer Valet in the configuration required to move the trailer (the support bracket has 2 nuts that need to be removed), a small inconvenience compared to all of the above benefits. 501521

Excellent service. Fine product for my application. During shopping for a trailer dolly, the detail provided by e-Trailer folks on the dimensions of fit and the answers to similar questions I held made the sale. I have a 5% slope from the street to my spare garage bay and a very tight fit for a new Jayco Series 1007 popup just purchased. I over estimated my backing skills and found the approach too tight for backing in. The neighbors were pleased to help push first time in. But something else was needed to avoid bailing out on the garage for commercial storage to keep my good neighbors down the road and the garage structure intact. The Trailer Valet was easy to install. Instructions were just fine. E-trailer's video and other picture data helped as well. Recommend that a beefy buddy assist just because of the product's bulk. I did it alone but used a large flower pot and blocks to hold it in place while bolting. I did need to substitute smaller bolts robbed from my junk bin to fit my unit's tongue beam size. But not a large matter. Could have made the bolts furnished do with washer shims. First solo trial out of the garage was easy compared to the three-man show required to enter. I did have a little struggle getting over a one-inch bump into the garage but a second try with a little momentum made it just fine. The Valet has saved me finding expensive commercial storage. 104628

I attached the Trailer Valet to my 3326 dual wheel TrailManor Travel trailer and am plesantly suprised with the trailer mover. It bolted to the fram easily enough and easily moves the trailer in tight places. The short toungue on the travel trailer meant that it had to be mounted slightly to one side but it still works fine. Due to it being off center the inside wheek carried a larger amount of weight and I noticed that the valve cap was scraped off as the wheel rotated around in the wheel well on the inside wheel but it only damaged the plastic valve stem cover and scraped some of the threads on the valve stem. The brake on the steering mechanism worked well and held the trailer firmly as putting the trailer in the garage was a tight space with only about a foot of clearance between the two sides. Manuverint the trailer was easy band the brake on the steering extension allowed me to check the clearance on both sides frequently without worying about the trailer rolling back down the driveway. There is a inch and a half ridge across the front of the garage and by placing a 1/2 inch board in front of a 1 inch board the trailer mover had plenty of power in the low gear to get the trailer over the ridge. I tried both moving gears and the high speed gear moves the trailer much faster but I would only consider using it if the trailer was on flat pavement. It takes much more effort to move and control the trailer in the high gear. My trailer weights about 4,000 pounds. A lighter trailer would probably be O.K. to move with the faster gear. I discovered that I will probably have to remove the bolt holding the mover to the ataching base when I pull the trailer because the wheel on the trailer mover hangs down about 2 inches too low for the equalizing hitch spring bar to move freely while the trailer is being towed. The hitch pin used in the mounting bracket to secure the mover should hold the mover securily when using the mover. The Trailer Valet can be stored in the vehicle when it is not needed or it can be left at home when the trailer is being used and re-attached when the trailer needs to be stored again. There is an electric tounge jack that came with my trailer so when the trailer Valet is attached to the trailer there are two tongue jacks available for lifting the tongue off of the tow vehicle. The Trailer Valet has a good toung jack built into it but with a few modifications it could be made to attach to the tougue jack on a travel trailer and some of the hardware in the mountin bracket could be eleminated. Most toungue jacks allow for the attachment of different wheels or pads on the bottom of the jack that are attached with the same hinge pin that is used to hold the jack in position when the trailer is being pulled. By modifying the mover it could eleminate the mounting bracket and the tongue jack. I am pleased with the Trailer Valet so far and would recommend it to others needing a trailer mover to park a trailer in a tight space. One should note about the trailer mover is that it is only for use on hard serfaces. People who are wanting to use it on grass or gravel will have to use plywood ot something to get traction for the mover on lose surfaces. 101822

We needed the Tailer Valet because our driveway is so narrow and it was impossible to back our Micro Minnie Winnie all the way back behind our fence. There isn't much of a slope to our driveway, but the hand dolly we purchased just wasn't enough to push it all the way back. We decided, after researching different types of trailer dollys, that The Trailer Valet would give us the best bang for our buck. We watched the installation video a few times, ordered it (actually paid $100 less than the advertised price) and installed it with no problems at all. We did a very small bit trial maneuvering, just to get a feel for how it moves the Minnie Winnie and to straighten it up a little-it works like a champ! Installing the Trailer Valet was easy. We installed on the passenger side of the trailer, away from the power cable and braking wires. We carefully followed the instructions and referred back to the installation video during the process and had it on in 15 minutes. We have to remove the propane tank cover when we use the Trailer Valet because the steering handle bumps it otherwise. Once we we get the Minnie winnie into place, we can lower the trailer foot, raise the wheel and remove the Trailer Valet. We will not be leaving it on the trailer while towing. We only need it on the driveway 637110

I've really hesitated to leave a review on this because I felt that my experience was not typical. I purchased this primarily to move my oversized trailer around my driveway. My driveway is not typical, it's basically a hill with not much maneuvering room. But the Trailer Valet website showed that this could move easily on hills so I saved up and bought it. It doesn't do hills at all. Also, the driveway needs to but absolutely pristine - no dirt, rocks, or sand. Boy, does this thing not like sand! Just a little on the driveway and the wheels just spin. I suppose this would work if the surface is clean and well paved and absolutely flat. Add a little sand and a bit of a slope and it takes 4 people to push and one to operate the valet in order to get a trailer to move at all. Also, I was disappointed with the unit itself. My fault, I didn't unpack it when it arrived, I waited about a month before I "got around" to unpacking and installing the until to my trailer. Follow everyone else's advice and go get other bolts. The ones that come with the unit are useless. By the time I unpacked and installed, I realized that one of the tires was flat. Not only flat but won't hold air for more than a few minutes. Makes it very hard to use when you have to stop every few feet to re-inflate the tire. No instructions came with the unit on how to replace the tire...but, again, my fault, I haven't contacted the manufacturer to get those instructions yet. Get idea in concept, not functional for areas with any slope. Maybe if they make a sturdier version with bigger tires that can actually grip the road, I may reconsider... not sure yet. 288718

It is a little early for a product review as I have only owned it for 2 days. Initial thoughts: Install was VERY easy and only took 10 minutes start to finish. I had our 2011 Z-8 in the back which is loose gravel, the twin wheels hold the weight with ease without sinking in. However, when I tried it for the first time the wheels dug themselves into a small hole and would not move the boat. Pretty sure it was all on me and where I had last parked the boat but it was getting dark and I did not feel the need to hook up and move it to solid ground because I am pretty confident it will perform as advertised once I do. I will at that point follow up with a more accurate review........ 415177


Comments
After a year I am still impressed! I read the reviews before purchase and the only flaw was moving with the jack extended there was a tendency to bend the jack. I always lower it which only takes a few moments before moving it and have never had a problem. I does however lack traction in gravel if you have it mounted on a heavy trailer like I do, Blacktop and concrete is where it shines. Simply back up in the vicinity of the hitch and finish the hookup with the jack. No more in and out of the truck until the ball is lined up! Definitely worth the money and would buy another without hesitation!

Because my trailer’s parking spot is perpendicular to the alley, and limited maneuvering room for my truck, the Trailer Valet is the perfect way to turn parking the trailer from a difficult ordeal to an easy exact maneuver. It was a very worthwhile investment. 673323

I like the functionality quite a bit, but I'm not sure this is a great choice for boat trailers. Especially of exposed to Salt water. The chain is pretty rusty already and getting harder to crank. Also the powder coating is flaking off pretty badly and rust is creeping in at a fairly rapid rate. Could just be a salt water exposure issue so if you don't intend to use it in salt water, you might fair better. If it wasn't for the rusting issues, I'd give it a 4 star for sure. 649300

I have a 20.6' Grady White Boat that is on a dual wheel trailer that I had a hard time putting into a close parking place . I had read some of the reviews on the Trailer Valet and had some concerns that it would not perform on my situation with the weight of my boat. I contacted etrailer and they were great to help assure me that the Trailer Valet had listened to customers and done some re-designing of the Trailer Valet to address some of the issues customers had expressed. So I took a chance and ordered one. I am glad I did, it does exactly what I needed. My boat is stored at a condo complex where there are close parking spaces and I needed to be able to put my boat in between the assigned parking spaces and could not accomplish this with my vehicle. It has been amazing to see the reaction of people watching me move my big boat with the Trailer Valet into the parking space. They have said they have never seen anything like this and wanted to know where I got it. I think I was one of the first to get one of the new re-designed versions of the Trailer Valets as I had to wait a short time for delivery. I was not sure it would work when it arrived, but without it I could not handle my boat by myself. This is a great product and it is worth it's weight in gold to me for what it does. So far I am extremely pleased. 229719

I received the Trailer Valet in a heavy duty oversized box that protected the product box extremely well. Everything was well packed. The mounting bracket didn’t match up with the original 1992 Four Winns factory bracket, of course, but turning it sideways, it fit right over the original mounting plate. This presented the proper height and clearances. I used shorter bolts(10 mm) for the mounting. It is a perfect fit! The Valet works very. It is strong and very well built. Moving the 19’ boat is so easy to move! 669323

I love the Trailer Valet! I park my 21' bass boat with a tandem axle trailer in the garage at my home. It barely fits in the garage diagonally with the trailer tongue folded. It is a snap to move the boat around in the garage using the Trailer Valet. It also helps make hooking up to the boat much easier. I highly recommend it! 603496

I bought an R pod camper trailer thinking I would be able to drive it up my steep driveway and back it into a small parking area at the top where there is parking space for 2 vehicles. When the camper was delivered that driver was able to get the camper placed but not without damaging my lawn while making multiple attempts. With that I decided to either sell the camper or pay to have it stored. Neither of which were appealing. When googling how to move a camper by hand I found this product. I called etrailer and spoke with a knowledgeable sales person who said I would safely be able to move my camper any direction including pivoting the camper in place. I had doubts. The price seemed a bit high but gave it a try. When it arrived it was simple to attached, maybe 15 minutes and performed exactly as they said it would. I was very surprised. The following weekend I was able to move and line up my camper with no trouble. Simple and easy. All was good. When I returned home after my trip my biggest fear occurred, my driveway was wet from rain. The valet still worked perfectly even in the rain. With no hesitation I think this product is one of the best designed I've ever seen, bar nothing. It's easy to install. It appears durable. It works better than I hoped. 674347

We enjoy fishing and boating most of the summer, but over the years it has become more difficult to maneuver our 3,000 lb. Hurricane 226 Fundeck boat and tandem trailer in our garage. With a recent upgrade to a 3,600 lb. Hurricane 201 Sundeck the job of moving the boat in our garage became impossible. Thank goodness for the Trailer Valet! Now I can simply back the boat into the front of our garage, quickly hookup the Trailer Valet, and move my boat back into our back boat storage area. I could not be more pleased with the ease of installation and operation. Wish I had purchased it years ago. Definitely a product I would recommend to anyone. Thanks Trailer Valet!

Appears to well built and works great as advertised, You can see I was able to place the trailer in a very tight spot so as not to take up any more room than needed. With a double axel I need to use the top wind on the trailer mover to lift the front axel high enough off the ground, almost free wheeling, to make tight turns, otherwise the tires on the front axel grab the ground and wont let you do any sharp turns, but lifting is easy with the trailer mover. I did have to mount the hardware far enough forward so that the front trailer door could swing open. When Im not using the trailer, I just pull the stow pin and remove the trailer mover to indoor storage! Also the product was shipped promptly and received incredibly fast as if I ordered it from [other online retailer], so watch out [other online retailer] you have some competition! 493020

I have a 5x8 covered trailer filled with about 1,000 lbs of tools. My driveway is sloped, long, narrow and has a 90 degree upward turn at the end with little room for maneuvering. It was impossible to back the trailer in with my truck and too much of a slope to push it by hand. Motorized trailer dolly's are out of the question financially. The Trailer Valet allows me to quickly back the trailer effortlessly precisely into position. The brake feature secures the trailer on the slope until I can apply the wheel chocks. Additionally, the next morning I can "drive" the trailer directly onto the hitch avoiding the "in and out" backup routine. This is the real deal. Built solid, high quality materials and workmanship. Delivery was quick and ahead of schedule. Overall a great product and company to deal with. Side note: One to always look for ways to make life easier, I rigged a square drive to my cordless 1/4" impact driver and viola, a motorized trailer dolly. Drives right in without cranking. 162382

Awful, Don't touch this! To lift and lower jack takes a lot of force. Called company and they said if it had been insalled I was stuck with it. SAD! Most jacks will at least lower ok, this one wont even crank down resonable! Now what do I tell the kids about the Fathers Day present they got me? 80678

I have the same problem Bill. The jack on this thing is junk. The rest of it has been working well. I replaced the jack with a good Atwood 5K jack and it is fine. These guys went the cheap route on the jack. I think it probably works great on boat trailers where the tongue weight is relatively low, but you get much above 300lbs tongue weight and the jack is out of its league.I would not recommend this product.

I wish I would have read your review! IT IS JUNK AT BEST !I brought this into work the day after I installed it, It failed almost immediately. Anyway we have 3 Mechanical Engineers. They laughed out loud when we took it apart! I WASNT LAUGHING!We fixed several simple design flaws. I however can help you! FREE INFORMATION!They plated the jack screw! really stupid!!!!You can take it apart and clean out all of the plating, then grease the heck out of it!You will need to do this every month until all the plating is removed.My tongue weight is only 200 lbs, and it couldnt jack it up or down!!!!!!!!!!!!Grease helped it out, there is lots of other stupid stupid stupid mistakes that you can fix for under 10 dollars at your local hardware store.

We have greatly improved the jack on the newest generation of Trailer Valets by widening the pitch on the acme thread and adding more lubricant to the inner walls which makes it easier to raise and lower your trailer. We are now also using a thicker gauge steel for the outer casing of the jack, which minimizes the play on the device while moving your trailer, and strengthens the device.

I know this reply is late, I removed jack screw and saw it was plated. DAY 1 The plating was coming off, So I removed the jack screw and hit it with a wire wheel, removed as much of the plating as I could, then I greased the heck out of it. MUCH MUCH MUCH BETTER.There are lots of other issues too. But that was the worst. The pivot bolt was supposed to be a shoulder bolt, they just used a regular bolt with a nut which eventually fell out causing the entire wheel and jack assembly to fall off when going down the highway. The air valve stems are too long and hit the wheel frame. If you still have it I can help. By the way, Outside of those issues, its wonderful.......

First had a steel plate welded to [email protected] trailer frame to close 3 sided channel into full rectangular box and strengthen frame to prevent distortion from weight of jack. Attaching mount to frame really needed 3 hands, particularly to ensure level mounting, but nothing too difficult to accomplish. Blocked up frame and removed old worn wheel jack. Put mount on frame side closest to old wheel jack. Trailer Valet provides good support and mobility on pavement. Have not tested on gravel or dirt yet. Only downside is that built-in braking mechanism does not have a lock for release. You must apply force to steering handle at same time. This actually makes it more difficult for one person to guide and move [email protected] for fine maneuvering/clearance because you cannot see around the trailer while turning the crank. This is a small inconvenience which requires pauses and checking clearance. The clips and cotter pin security are convenient and secure - very good design. Because my [email protected] has a recommended tongue height of only 16 inches, had to place jack mount "upside-down" on frame to get good clearance for jack wheels but with light tongue weight, this is not a problem. With reinforced trailer frame mod, there is no deflection or distortion. Finally, used a utility knife to trim the plastic trailer jack/brake cover to fit around new jack mount and set it back in place for the sake of appearance. 227954

I am 70 years old and needed an easier way to back my Bass Tracker Pro Team 175 boat into it's parking space on the side of my home. Backing the boat in using my vehicle was difficult. Sometimes I could do it on one try and other times I needed several tries to get it in position. I decided to buy the Trailer Valet and see if I could use it to maneuver my boat the last 20 feet into it's parking space. My boat parking area is paved and level. My boat is about 17 foot long and weighs about 2300 pounds with the trailer and gear. The Trailer Valet works very well with my boat. I also now use the Trailer Valet to position the trailer hitch over the ball when I am connecting the boat to my vehicle. I have used both the manual crank handle and a 14.4 volt cordless drill to move my boat. They both work well, but you have to be careful when using a cordless drill that you don't twist your wrist. You need a fairly level paved surface for the Trailer Valet to work well. I once tried using it on a rough dirt parking area and the drive wheels would just spin in the dirt. The Trailer Valet is well made and I have not had any problems with the equipment. When my boat is stored, I use a jack under tongue of the boat trailer so that there is no weight on the Trailer Valet wheels. 438871

Ask the Experts about this Trailer Valet Trailer Dolly

  • What Is the Capacity of Trailer Valet XL
    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. It is very likely that your 20 foot travel trailer will have a weight that is well under 10,000 lbs and a tongue weight under 1,000 lbs; I do recommend confirming this but I would be shocked if a 20 foot travel trailer exceeds those limits. The Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25 has a 2-5/16" hitch ball but there is also one...

  • Recommended Trailer Dolly for Maneuvering 4,500 lb Trailer Into Storage Area
    The MaxxTow Trailer Dolly with 1-7/8" Hitch Ball - Black Powder Coated Steel - 600 lbs # MT70225 is far too small an option for your trailer. This style tow dolly has a max weight of 600 lbs total weight so your 4,500 lb dry weight is far exceeding capacity. The CE Smith Heavy Duty Trailer Dolly with 1-7/8" Hitch Ball - Black - 700 lbs # CE27550 is the only one rated for tongue weight and that would work, but you would most likely need a different hitch ball size. Due to the size of...

  • Trailer Mover for Use with 16-Foot 3500-lb Airstream Sport Travel Trailer
    The trailer mover I suggest for your 3500-lb Airstream Sport travel trailer is the Trailer Valet 5X model # STC-V211. This 2-speed chain-drive trailer mover simply clamps on to either side of your A-frame (no welding and no drilling) and it can handle the loaded trailer tongue weight up to 500-lbs. It features an automatic brake for your safety. You can hand-crank the Valet or use the cordless drill adapter # TVDA to give you a really easy method for maneuvering the trailer into tight...

  • What Is The Best Trailer Valet For Moving A Boat Trailer Over Grass
    I contacted Trailer Valet on your behalf and you are right to question if the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25 will work here. With a towing weight of 3,250 lbs, the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 is preferred. The 5X comes with a mounting bracket to be attached on the side of your frame. 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...

  • Bolt-On Side-Mount Dual Wheel Trailer Jack Recommendation for Utility Trailer
    Since you want a side-mount jack that will work on dirt/grass surfaces I suggest a dual-wheel type such as the MaxxTow # MT70149. Dual wheel will spread the weight over a larger area and help the jack function on such softer surfaces. The jack offers bolt-on installation, a hefty 1500-lb tongue weight rating, pull-pin swivel operation and 12-inches of lift. If the surfaces are very soft or rutted you may instead prefer the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211. This...

  • How to Correct Air Leaking from Tires on Trailer Valet Trailer Mover STC-V211
    If the pneumatic tires on your Trailer Valet # STC-V211 are needing to be aired up each time you use your trailer I suggest either using a tire sealer product like Slime Tire Sealant # SLM10007 or if that does not solve the issue replacing your tires' inner tubes with part # TVIT. The tire on my wheelbarrow used to leak slowly until I applied some sealant. Since the sealant option is less costly I suggest trying that before replacing the inner tubes. The main reason solid tires are...

  • Trailer Dolly Recommendation for 1,000 lb Boat on Trailer
    Before swapping out dollies you may want to try to see if putting more tongue weight on your trailer would give you better traction for your Trailer Valet 5X # STC-V211. Since it sounds like you have a bit of weight at the back of the boat it could be that there isn't much pressure on the tires which is why you're having trouble. The only other option, aside from using one of the Trailer Valet remote controls like part # TVRVR3, is to use the manual CE Smith Heavy Duty Trailer Dolly...

  • 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...

  • Can a Caster Wheel be Used on Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack
    While you could put a wheel on an electric jack such as # UF38-944017 the problem is that the wheels are rated much lower than the jacks so the jack would be limited to the capacity of the wheel. What I recommend is to use a trailer dolly such as # MT70225. We use these around here sometimes to move trailers around. The 1-7/8 inch ball ensures that any coupler size will fit (doesn't have to be exact because the trailer isn't being towed). Another option is a jack and trailer mover in...

    You can add the drill attachment # TVDA to the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 to allow for cordless drill operation. The 5X offers two operating speeds and an automatic brake for safety and convenience when positioning your trailer. Please see the linked video.

  • 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"...

    I reached out to Trailer Valet and my contact said that they are always looking for ways to improve their products but at this point in time he isn't aware of any flat-free tires they are coming out with for the Trailer Valet 5X # STC-V211. There are solid rubber titres from Trailer Valet but those will only fit the XL versions. You may want to check to make sure you aren't exceeding the 500 lb tongue weight capacity and that you have the Inner Tire Tube # TVIT for the Tire # TVTR inflated...

  • Could the Trailer Valet Be Used with a Weight Distribution System
    The swivel assembly of the Trailer Valet part # STC-V211 would allow it to swivel either forward or back if needed.

  • How to Move Boat From CE Smith Boat Trailer Without Boat Ramp
    The CE Smith Boat Trailer # CE48810 is a great choice to transport your Sun Dolphin Pro and using a trailer dolly will absolutely work for you. You could use the MaxxTow # MT70881 if you wanted as the tongue weight of your trailer will keep it on the smaller hitch ball of that dolly. However, I do think there is another option that would be better for you. I recommend the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211.

    The installation bracket for the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 that you referenced takes up to 8 inches of space to mount on the trailer frame. If you have enough room to mount the unit, you should be fine being able to swivel it into position to travel because you should not have anything else extending over the side-rails of your trailer. In the picture I have attached are the measurements from the actual # STC-V211 we have on site. From the bottom of the wheel to the top of the unit while...
