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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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'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 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.

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

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

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

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

This trailer valet XL is awesome! Worked perfectly. I have a cement pad between the house and fence. I used to back up my enclosed cargo trailer with my truck there but the problem was that the rear door/gate could not be opened because the fence was in the way. After extensive product searches online, I decided on the Trailer Valet XL. Now I'm able to "drive" the trailer using this product nose first into the parking spot all the way up to the fence. Not only was it easy to do by myself, now I can open the rear door/gate of my trailer and use it as a backyard shed to store my lawnmower and yard tools. Before I was unable to do this because it was backed up against the fence. As a bonus, I'm very confident that if I'm gone on vacations, nobody will be able to steal my trailer either since the hitch is up against the fence and there is no way someone could back the trailer up from its parking spot, fully loaded with mowers and tools, unless they also have a Trailer Valet XL. The old way I used to park it, someone could back up their truck and break the lock on the trailer hitch and drive away with it. Not anymore! 853991

Well built. Mine arrived with a little dirt and wheels seemed to have some wear, one on the little plastic buttons where handle goes was torn and metal corner was scuffed, my guess is I ended up with a return or maybe refurbished unit. That’s not what I paid for so I take a star away. It’s easy to use, it can go on hard pack gravel but this is definitely a machine for hard flat surface. Any grade, you are in for a heck of a workout. Handle/safety level kind of hard to hold up and crank with other hand if you going up hill. Easier with two people for weird/uneven terrain. 851823

I have only used once as I just received it. Used a drill and it moved my trailer fairly easily. It seemed that I had to tighten the collar a few times while using it but it may be a matter of my getting familiar with it. It should be better than having to get the tow vehicle out every time I want to pull my trailer out from under the metal shed when I want to work on my trailer. I am using it with my Jayco Octane SL 222 toyhauler. 802280

My enclosed car trailer is empty. Has two axles, and is 22 feet long. I am using the trailer on exposed aggregate concrete. Hard to turn trailer. Looses traction. On a very minor grade it spins the wheels. The hight ends up having the hitch lower. The trailer is not level. I think if there was a adjustment that would get the ball higher so more weight is on the rear wheels. 802269

This is based on one use. We previously had the smaller model which gave us years of service but now we own a six k lbs trailer with a tongue weight of five hundred lbs and this valet makes it a breeze to crank, too much maneuvering to use the drill adaptor but we are sure it would work perfectly with the more powerful reduction gears, definitely worth every cent. 769867

  • How To Add Air To the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly
    The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly part # TVXL25 that you referenced uses a solid rubber tire, part # TVXLSR so there would be no inflation valve to add air. However, I think you might have the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover part # STC-V211 which has pneumatic tires that you can add air to. The valve stem for these tires will be visible once you remove the wheel from the jack.

  • 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.

This hitch ball will work perfectly in the base of your Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25.

  • 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.

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 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!).

  • 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.

  • Replacement Inner Tube Recommendation for Trailer Valet XL to Replace Leaking Tire
    If I had to guess the valve stem is bad and if you put pressure on it leaks. What you'd want to do is replace the inner tube with the part # TVIT.

  • 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.

  • Availability of Pintle Adapter for Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly TVXL25
    It sounds like your military trailer uses a pintle style coupler such as # 63012. Trailer Valet does not offer an adapter for using this type of trailer with their XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25. The main reason is that military surplus trailers will tend to have much higher tongue weight (TW) than typical agricultural or recreational trailers. This is simply a result of their very strong heavy-duty construction. The XL Trailer Dolly is rated for up to 1000-lbs of TW. Your trailer could easily...

  • Will Trailer Valet Trailer Dolly Move a 6,000 Pound Trailer at 90 Degrees Up Hill
    Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25 will be able to move your trailer at the near 90 degree angle and up the incline of the driveway. The dolly has 2 gears and you will likely find that the low speed, 27 to 1 ratio will make it easier on you though more cranking will be needed. Or you can use a drill with the included drill attachment to move it much faster.

  • 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.

  • Will Trailer Valet XL Allow Trailer to Be Moved Up Slight Incline
    The Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25 that you referenced can handle small inclines pretty well as long as the ground is paved or concrete. If it's gravel or grass I wouldn't recommend what you are trying to do. In the demo video I attached you can see it moving up and down an incline.

  • Trailer Valet XL Coupler Recommendation
    Looks like a standard yoke style A-frame coupler you have on your trailer. Based on what you described it does sound like it's out of adjustment and in need of being replaced. I don't care for the yoke style of couplers since they get difficult to latch after a while so I would go with the Fulton Coupler part # F44314R0303 which uses a latch style that's a bit easier to use over time. This will work well with your Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL25.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Using Trailer Valet To Move Trailer To Cement Pad Next To Driveway
    The Trailer Valet V2 Trailer Dolly like part # TVXL25 is the only product that we have that is rated to handle above 600 lbs in tongue weight. The drill is meant to be used on flat ground only. Using the drill on an incline poses safety issues and can very quickly burn out the drill if given too much torque. Use the hand crank on an incline. As long as the weight of the trailer plus tongue are within the weight capacity for the XL, and as long as your incline is less than 10 degrees,...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Does Trailer Valet XL Have Solid Tires that Can't Go Flat
    The current versions of the Trailer Valet XL part numbers # TVXL25 for a 2-5/16 inch ball or part # TVXL2 for a 2 inch ball both use the solid tire that can't lose air. This is the style of Trailer Valet wheel we now offer for both dollies.

  • 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.
