Expert Answers about Trailer Valet

  • What Size Drill Will Replacement Drill Attachment for Trailer Valet Work With
  • I went to the warehouse and checked out the Replacement Drill Attachment for Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly, part # TVDA for you. The adapter will work best with 1/2 inch 18V drills. This adapter will work with # TVXL2 and # TVXL25 and also the # STC-V211 trailer movers.

  • Will Trailer Valet Work On Grass And Gravel To Move 20 Ft Boat And Trailer
  • The Trailer Valet, part # STC-V211 may work with your lawn if the ground is not soft, and your tongue weight is not excessive. The gravel may be another issue. If the gravel is loose and does not provide a solid footing it would be difficult to move the # STC-V211 with the boat attached. I have attached a product review video of the Trailer valet you can check out. The cranking that powers the drive system would depend on how level the ground is and if there is solid footing for the...

  • 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.

  • Will the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 Fit a 2011 Jayco Pop-up Camper
  • 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Valet XL To Park A 10,000 lb Trailer
  • As long as your trailer isn't loaded to max capacity when you park it, I recommend the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive. This easy to use trailer dolly comes with a hand crank and a drill attachment. This dolly has a 1000 lb tongue weight capacity and a gross trailer weight capacity of 10,000 lbs. The hitch ball height is adjustable from 19-1/4 inches to 20-1/4 inches. This system allows you to drive and steer with minimal effort and you have the choice of high and low...

  • Dimensions Of Replacement Mounting Bracket For Trailer Valet
  • There is no weight rating for the Mounting Bracket, part # TV-0002. It is designed to replace the bracket for the Trailer Valet Trailer Jack, part # STC-V211. The Trailer valet has a weight capacity of 500 lbs. You may be able to install a different trailer jack in the bracket but since they do not test the bracket with any other manufacturer items, I cannot give you a weight capacity for the bracket or a guarantee it will work. I pulled one of the # TV-0002 from our warehouse and...

  • Is the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover the New or Old Version
  • I went out to the warehouse with the writer who wrote the description for the Trailer Valet, # STC-V211, to determine if our stock is the old or new version. I am happy to report that we have the new version. The manufacturer states the following changes: The new Trailer Valets will still be powder coated, but all the parts that are exposed will be now be Zinc-Nickel Plated, a process known for its excellent resistance to corrosion. The quality of the Acme Screws on the device are greatly...

  • Recommended Trailer Valet XL For 2008 Fleetwood Niagara Pop-Up Camper Trailer
  • The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL25 and Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL2 are basically the same part just with different hitch ball size to match your trailer coupler. The 1,000 lb rating is for tongue weight, so your 2008 Fleetwood Niagara will be easily compatible. If you have two trailers with different couplers, the hitch ball can be purchased separately. They are #...

  • Can the Trailer Valet Move a 4,000 Pound Trailer Up a Small Incline
  • You should not have a problem moving your 4,000 pound trailer up a small incline using the Trailer Valet, # STC-V211. It has a 5,000 pound capacity and 500 pound tongue weight capacity. The Valet has 2 gears and depending on the degree the incline is you might find that the low or high gear is better suited for that particular incline. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • Does the Trailer Valet Trailer Jack Work On Grass
  • The dual 9 inch diameter wheels on the Trailer Valet, # STC-V211, will work well in grassy terrain. You can switch between a high and low gear for the best results on different terrain. The wheels on the jack are the only available size. Should the wheels need to be replaced Trailer Valet does offer them. I have included a video review for you to view.

  • Best Way to Move a Trailer Around on a Paved Driveway
  • You have a couple options. You could go with a standard trailer dolly like the part # MT70225, or for an even easier product to use you could go with the Trailer Valet part # STC-V211. This jack comes with a crank and handle that allows you to move a trailer on pavement very easily. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Can the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly be Used to Push or Pull a Trailer
  • Yes, the Trailer Valet XL dolly # TVXL2 is actually designed to pull the trailer as well as to push it so it will work just like you want it to! This version has a 2 inch ball. There is also a version with a 2-5/16 inch ball # TVXL25. I have linked a video showing how these dollies work.

  • Does the Trailer Valet XL Permanently Attach to a Trailer Frame
  • You are correct, the Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL2 does not attach to the trailer frame at all. Basically you just line up the hitch ball under the coupler and then pull back until the ball sits perpendicular to the ground. Check out the picture I attached that shows the system being pulled up underneath a coupler.

  • Can the Trailer Valet Drill Attachment Work on all Versions of the Trailer Valet
  • The drill attachment part # TVDA that you referenced can work on either version of the Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL2 and # TVXL25 as well as the 5X part # STC-V211.

  • How Much Space is Required on the Trailer Frame to Mount the Trailer Valet Trailer Jack and Mover
  • We have tested the Trailer Valet, # STC-V211, on a trailer but not on coarse gravel. However, I feel that it would fair well because the dual wheels provide a wide surface area and the wheels are not hard plastic so they can move over a little rougher terrain than your average jack wheel. The bracket takes up 8 inches of real estate on the trailer frame. The unit has a capacity of 5,000 pounds but the further back on the frame it is the harder it will be to use the jack portion and maneuver...

  • What Type of Tires Are Supplied on the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack, Part # STC-V211
  • I spoke to my contact at Trailer Valet to get specifics on the tires supplied with Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover, part # STC-V211. The dual tires measure approximately 9 inches by 2-1/2 inches (this will vary slightly depending on tire pressure). The tires are tubed and are usually shipped with about 50 psi pressure. The typical working pressure range for these is 50 to 60 psi. I have included a brief video that demonstrates some of the safety and convenience features...

  • Dimensions for Mounting Trailer Valet # STC-V211
  • As you noted, the mounting bracket on the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 requires 8 inches of space to mount. If the crossbeams on your trailer frame are roughly 5 inches apart, not including the width of the beams as shown in Image #1, it would be a very tight fit for the installation bracket. Another consideration. Based on your photograph (image #1), it doesn't appear that you will have enough space to be able to swivel the trailer valet into travel position....

  • Is the Latest Upgraded Version of the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack part # STC-V211 Available
  • I can assure you that you will get the latest version of the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 that comes with all of the upgrades you listed. We do not have any old stock of the original version left of this product so everything we sell going forward will be the latest version with the upgrades. I attached a review video for this product as well.

  • 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.

  • Are the Trailer Valet V211 and 5X the Same Thing
  • The Trailer Valet 5X and the older part # STC-V211are the same thing. Trailer Valet may have changed the number for the jack but it's the same thing as the previous name/number. Same capacities and everything.

  • Can Wheel and Jack on Trailer Valet be Easily Removed To Tow a Trailer and Reduce Tongue Weight
  • We have a Trailer Valet set up on a trailer outside so I went out to test it. You can remove the jack and valet part from the mounting bracket that attaches to the trailer. I had to jack it up using the Trailer Valet, slip under a jack stand, and lower the trailer on the jack stand. Then I just raised the jack a little, pulled the pin, and the whole unit can slide off. In order to completely remove the Trailer Valet, # STC-V211, you would have to loosen and remove the 4 bolts that are...

  • Installing Trailer Valet # STC-V211 on Trailer Frame that is Too Narrow for Supplied Hardware
  • If your trailer frame is a bit too small for you to mount the bracket of Trailer Valet # STC-V211 then what I suggest is to simply use a steel spacer plate to take up that slack, rather than use different hardware. Keeping the original hardware avoids any question about strength and compatibility and the extra material at the valet's attachment point will provide reinforcement for the trailer frame. Your local hardware store will have what you need and most likely the cost for the steel...

  • Dimensions of Trailer Valet XL Ball Mount Height
  • Good news! I was able to go out to the warehouse and take a few measurements for you. The Trailer Valet and the maximum height of the ball will be 20-1/4 inches from the ground. I also took the measurement from the center of the ball to the outer edge of the tire and it was 4-3/4 inches. This will give you a good idea of if your Fulton X2 will clear or not. I have attached a diagram of the dimensions for your convenience.

  • Can the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly TVXL2 Work on Different Terrain?
  • I spoke to my contact at Trailer Valet and he informed me that yes, the Trailer Valet # TVXL2 can work on gravel and packed grass if there is enough weight on the tongue. Another option the manufacture suggested was to use a piece of plywood, this would be able to solve any traction problems.

  • Options for Converting Trailer Valet with 2 inch Ball to 2-5/16 inch Ball
  • The bases for the 2 inch ball and 2-5/16 inch ball are the same for the Trailer Valet XL models, 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 inch ball and install the 2-5/16 inch ball into your existing base. So you could use just the part # TVHB25 for a new ball if you wanted to. If you would like to be able to switch between the 2 inch ball and 2-5/16 inch ball more easily, you can use the 2-5/16...

  • What Are Mounting Bracket Dimensions on Trailer Valet Swivel Jack, Part # STC-V211
  • Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover, part # STC-V211, uses a heavy-duty mounting bracket that can accommodate frame members up to 2-3/4 inches wide x 6 inches tall. Although your trailer frame is within this range, the I-beam construction prevents mounting the jack to the main side frame members. To use the Trailer Valet you will have to mount it on the 3-inch tall tongue section forward of the A-portion of your trailer. Since the Trailer Valet swivels up out of the way when...

  • Will the Trailer Valet Trailer Jack and Mover Fit a Jayco 1206BS Pop-up Camper Trailer
  • We have not had any complaints regarding the use of the trailer valet # STC-V211 on any specific brand of trailer. To determine fit you can measure the available space on your trailer. The mounting bracket on the trailer valet takes up 8 inches of space. If this will not work, take a look at the Rackem trailer dolly, # RA20. It has a 500 pound tongue weight capacity and two 13 x 4 inch tires spaced 24 inches apart and would be a good alternative if the trailer valet will not fit.

  • 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...
