Ark Extreme Off-Road Trailer Jack

Ark Extreme Off-Road Trailer Jacks were developed to withstand use in the Australian Outback, so to say they're rugged is a huge understatement. These jacks' heavy-duty construction and easy-pivot, dual-wheel design gives increased grip and maneuverability to keep your hauler moving forward through the toughest terrain including off-road, mud, sand, and other extreme conditions.

etrailer Hitch Pin Alignment Collar

This handy little stocking stuffer makes installing a heavy hitch accessory a breeze. The etrailer Hitch Alignment Tool lets your loved one install a ball mount, bike rack, cargo carrier, or other hitch accessory the first time, every time.

Give the gift of hindsight in 2021 with the the Hopkins VueSMART RV & Trailer Backup Camera and never back blindly again. The built-in WiFi transmitter connects to your smartphone or tablet so there’s no video lag. The 152-degree view banishes blind spots, and 6 LED lights help you see where you’re backing – even in the dark. Plus, you can take photos and record video.

Gorilla Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist

How many elves does it take to raise and lower a heavy trailer tailgate? Trick question! Elves aren’t real, but if they were, you’d only need ONE to get the job done with the help of the Gorilla Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist. Just mount a lift assist unit on either side of your utility trailer, and the built-in springs shoulder most of the gate burden, leaving the user free to raise or lower the gate with a single hand. No more lifting with the back, no more dropped trailer gates—just smooth, effortless opening and closing every time.

Your camper might not mind getting their hands dirty—but their car is another matter. Help them protect their seats from mud and moisture with this non-slip, collapsible etrailer Bucket Seat Protector. Easily slip it over the headrest and seat after a hike, bike ride, beach day, or float trip. It’s waterproof and machine washable, plus it’s small enough to fit in the glove compartment on those days when they’re not covered in yuck.
 B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mounts

Wesbar LED Utility Light

This utility light is such a great deal and so versatile, you may decide you need one for yourself! The Wesbar LED Utility Light plugs into any 12V outlet and puts off 800 lumens of bright white light – just flip the easy on/off switch you’re set for nighttime work, a back-up light, extra boat or ATV headlights…or any other reason to see in the dark.

You can bet they’ll be surprised and delighted with this gift that’ll keep giving for years to come!

REDARC TowPro Liberty Trailer Proportional Brake Controller

Great gifts do come in small packages! Many electric trailer brake controllers have a clunky, big box that folks knock their knee on – but not the TowPro Liberty! It gives your favorite tower a tool for smooth, safe proportional trailer braking and integrates into the vehicle’s dash or console for a from-the-factory look – all for just $135.

BetterWeigh Mobile Tongue Weight and Payload Scale

Be your hauler’s hero (and save them from having to drive their loaded trailer to a scale) with the BetterWeigh. With simple plug-and-go installation into the vehicle’s OBD port, it connects wirelessly to a smartphone and reports tongue weight, pin weight, payload, and gross weight for safe towing.

etrailer Tongue Weight Scale

If you know someone who tows, look no further for a gift than this etrailer Tongue Weight Scale. This scale connects to a ball coupler or jack and provides an easy-to-read measurement to indicate whether the trailer is properly loaded. No guessing, no driving to a commercial scale, and definitely no driving with an overloaded trailer. It’s safe, it’s convenient, and it spares your loved one from having to do math (they’ll love you for it).

Ultra-Fab Super Grip Chocks

What makes the Ultra-Fab Super Grip Chocks such a fabulous gift? They’re basically the Superman of wheel chocks, putting a stop to rocking RVs by eliminating the “give” between tandem-axle tires. If you’ve ever heard your RVer complain that their rig is unsteady no matter what kind of stabilizers they use, they’ll appreciate the heck out of a set of Super Grip Chocks.

Telesteps Telescopic Ladder

When you need a long ladder, you really need one, but when you don’t need it, it’s kind of a nuisance. Give a gull-size ladder that doesn’t need much storage space with a Telesteps Telescopic Ladder. Choose from ladders up to 14½ feet long that telescope down into a compact little package that’s easy to store and transport when not in use.

Curt RockerBall Hitch Ball

Give a more comfortable ride with less noise while towing (without buying a new and pricey ball mount) with a Curt RockerBall Hitch Ball It uses Shockdrop technology to provide a pivot point to absorb the trailer’s motion, making for a better ride and less stress on the tow vehicle’s brakes and suspension.

etrailer Ratchet Tie Down Strap Set

If I were making a list of my favorite things, it would include the etrailer Ratchet Tie Down Strap Set. They’re durable, easy-to-use straps at a great price. (And did I mention they come with a handy storage back so no hunting for straps?) It’s easy for 1 person to secure the strap without it slipping off; the large, easy-release handle makes unloading a snap; and the hook-and-loop keeper secures your excess strap so it’s not flapping in the wind.

Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch

Looking for a practical gift that’s guaranteed to make your loved one’s life easier? Look no further than this electric Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch. With the touch of a button on the included remote, this winch pulls ATVs, UTVs, golf carts, or other small vehicles onto a trailer. (We hear Santa himself uses it to transport his sleigh during the off season.)

Duracell Jump Starter

Are you the person they call when they need a hand? Well, now you can be their savior even from a distance. This rechargeable Duracell Jump Starter quickly restarts dead batteries on gas and diesel cars, boats, trucks, ATVs, and motorcycles. And it doesn’t stop at just reviving dead batteries—this multitasking beast also has a built-in tire inflator, a 12V port for accessories, and a USB port for charging dead smartphones or other devices (you know, the ones that always seem to die right when you need them most). It’s the perfect companion to help your loved one out of any emergency when you can’t be there in person.

Bright Way Charger

We all know that person whose batteries never seem to run out, who’s always working hard and playing harder. So why not make sure their trailer batteries can keep up? This Bright Way Charger does just that, providing a clean and simple way to charge a dump trailer or hydraulic lift trailer battery. This smart charger can be mounted inside the hydraulic pump or lift motor housing and provides its own shore power plug for easy charging.

Stallion Tire Grip Vehicle Traction Recovery Tracks

For some, there’s 4-wheel-drive. For everyone else, there’s Stallion Recovery Tracks. This functional gift is perfect for anyone who takes on winter weather (especially in a less-than-equipped vehicle). Just position a track under each drive wheel to create enough traction to get stuck tires back on the road. Then roll up the tracks and pop them in the trunk to store.

I bought a valet pro about a two years ago and love it with the exception of having to be bent over whenever using it. Now I see they have a xl pro. My question is there any way that I can purchase the bracket that takes it from a pro to a xl pro.

I believe that you mean you have the Trailer Valet XL? I wasn't able to find anything about a Trailer Valet Pro. The XL and XL-Pro have different housing units so unfortunately there is no way to adapt the brackets and reinforcements onto your unit. If you're wanting to go with the XL-Pro you'll need to get the entire unit.
