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.

The 5x appears to be of high quality constuction. The instruction manuel was clearly written and easy to follow, with several "optional" directions in case adjustments are needed for your trailer. Package was delivered on the day promised. Great experience working with Etrailer : also the lowest price I could find for this model.

Have used the Trailer Valet about a dozen times in the past year to maneuver my camper inout of a fairly tight storage spot. I like the ability to make small and immediate steering adjustments while positioning the camper. I am able to move the camper 3500 lbs. up the sloping transition from driveway to a level storage pad. The pipe mount installed easily and doesnt interfere with towing.



by:

I purchased this a year ago and it has worked for well for its intended purpose. I installed this on a RPod 179 and had to make a minor adjustment to the way the propane hose was routed on the frame so as not to rub at all against a mounting bolt. I waxed all the finished surfaces before mounting to help protect against any rust. Additionally, I had to attach two of the bolts backwards for placement clearance. Due to limited space for mounting on the frame on my RPod I cannot flip the jack up while towing. The only space available is not far enough away from the trailer wall and the other side there is a mount for the sway bars.
It has worked very well to put my trailer into the right spot for all my vehicles to fit into the driveway. It has also been useful for moving it when it is not exactly where my traveling partner has wants it when camping. My Rpod is 3500 lbs. unloaded and around 4000 loaded.
It also used to put my utility trailer with the same type of mount into and out of its parking space head-in so I may use it as a garage for my motorcycle. I no longer need two people to move it into and out of its space which only has 3 inches of clearance on both sides. The utility trailer is single axle 900 lbs. unloaded and 2200 loaded. I have only use it once loaded. It is a lot easier unloaded. The jack is stored indoors when not in use.
I should add that the brake applied when the handle is dropped worked very well on both trailers.



by:

The product works well and as advertised. Installation is easy. Having enough tongue-weight is critical for your application. I use my Valet to get a large boat into a barn with a very narrow door. My transition from gravel to the concrete apron at the door is not perfectly smooth. I add a little tongue-weight for traction at that point in the move (having someone stand on the tongue does the trick).

It has been a year and Im still happy. Zero issues with this tool.

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.

The Trailer Valet works great with my boat. Very well built.



by:

I recently purchased a dual axle 16 foot trailer to haul 2 quads and 4 dirt bikes. My hope was that the trailer will be stored in my backyard without paying storage fees at some storage lot. Unfortunately, my alley is quite narrow, my gate is not too wide, my backyard is grass, and there is a hill down to where I need to store the trailer. Trying to drag the trailer with a quad was scary at best. There is no way that I can drag the trailer around with some powerless trailer dolly at my age. The Trailer Valet came to the rescue!

Installation was fairly quick and simple. I did follow the directions and placed the mounting bracket low on the trailer tongue and the mount clamp connector on it low as well. I did make a quick trip to the neighborhood hardware store for proper length bolts and nylon lock nuts. The provided bolts were too long for my specific needs. They should be fine for a full size RV trailer.

The high gear is good for going downhill. The automatic brake works well as I soon found out. The low gear gets the trailer back up and out of the yard, even over grass. I did have to crank the trailer tongue up higher to get better traction in the grass, but was expected with a dual axle.

Simply put, there is no way that I could get that trailer in and out of my backyard in a safe and easy manner without the Trailer Valet. I do the job all by myself, and I did not spend a pile more for some powered unit to do the job. I will be getting another mounting bracket to use the Trailer Valet on my RV Trailer. In my opinion, there is no better solution at that price level.

Pete, I am looking at purchasing a trailer valet. You stated in your reviews that it worked on a grassey incline is that true?. I dont want to purchase it if it doesnt. I have about a 125 foot strecth between front and back of house. I have a 14 aluminum boat and trailer

Pete D.

10/26/2015

Yes, I have a fairly aggressive grassy incline in my yard that I must go up or down due to irrigation. I have found that when going up, I crank the tongue up to put more pressure on the Trailer Valet tires, then they get traction. Check the tire pressure when you are going to use it, and check the tires on the trailer, too. Please note that the valet tires may not work well in mud, but reasonably dry grass is fine. My trailer comes in at around 900 lbs, so I have to use the lower gear most of the time when going uphill, and for manipulation around the truck. Take the Valet off when not in use, or it will rust a bit outside. Use your trailer tongue jack instead of the Valet when not in use. I take the rig off while driving. I want the better clearance, and I do not want to donate it when I go for gas or a meal on the road. Biggest issue I have is that the trailer tires start to sink in the grass and soft dirt during storage outside. Getting it going at first can be an issue due to the trailer sinking down a bit from irrigation and weight, but that is not the valets fault. Hope this helps.

Yes I'm happy. A product that does what it advertises.
Hesitant to spend the money, video's found on Etrailer and youtube convinced us.
Chronic back, knee and shoulder issues from 30 years of fire department work slowed our boating down due to the issues with hand pushing the trailer. No more! I understand the theory behind step-down gear advantage but was still shocked at how non-stressful and smooth it is to use the Valet up our slope to re-park in the garage.

We opt to keep the regular tongue jack installed and remove the Valet (the trailer bracket stays in place of course) to reduce envious eyes when the trailer is parked at busy marina's...glad the option is built in, attaching it to the bracket when we return home is a snap. Its a solid unit, construction and welds show quality workmanship.

Changes? A bit of an expanded instruction manual with a larger print....it is pretty tough on old eyes.
Would I buy it again now that we've used it a few times? YES.

No changes to the reviewed offered a year ago, it works as well as I had hoped and has given me confidence to do what had been a daunting job of garaging. A shot of lube to the chain has been the only maintenance required over the past 12 months.



by:

The trailer mover works but with my 20' Tige is significantly harder to move than the video reviews I saw before ordering it. The tires didn't move well at all in dirt and gravel but that should be expected by looking at the tire tread. I definitely worked up a sweat moving my boat but this works so much better than just pushing the boat around on the flimsy wheeled jack stand that was on the trailer.

Funny, i have the exact same DHM boat trailer as you and was doing research on what to replace it with. I ran across this thing and it seems like a great idea. Thanks a ton for posting those pictures! Im pushing the published limits as my boat is a 23 and total weight is 5,000lbs. Hopefully there is engineering safety factors built in!



by:

I have an extremely narrow area that I cannot back up my boat between the side of my house and fence. My truck cannot make the turn required and it is slightly uphill. With the drill attachment and my 18 volt brush less drill moving the boat into place using the Trailer Valet is an easy task that I could not do without this device. It was the deciding factor that allowed me to purchase the boat.

2 year review:

I purchased the
Trailer Valet 5X from etrailer two years ago. I have been pleased with the product and use it several times a week to move my 3500# double axle bass boat in and out of my garage. I believe it is one of the safest ways to move a trailer of this type. I only use it on a concrete surface with minimal grade. I do have to turn my trailer at some pretty sharp angles which requires the use of a thick mil plastic sheet on the garage floor.
I always use the drill attachment and the low gear driveshaft. Unfortunately, this has led to a problem that I believe has resulted from a design flaw. I suspect anyone that uses there Trailer Valet as much as I do with the drill attachment will eventually have the same issue. The issue is that the bushings on the driveshafts are made of soft brass and the surface they rest on in the bearing housing is steel. As the bushings spin, they eventually are cut by the sharp steel edge of the housing. With enough use, the steel cuts completely through the bushings and the driveshaft begins to wear the bearing housing. I hope the folks that make the Trailer Valet fix this design flaw because it really is a great product otherwise.

Had to move my existing jack to the opposite side of the trailer
Had to adjust the height a few times but it moves my 2022 18 foot Bass Buggy loaded great



by:

First had a steel plate welded to T@B 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 T@B 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 T@B 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.



by:

I bought the Trailer Valet 5x approximately 1 year ago for use on a 22', 3000 lb. empty flatbed to get it into my back yard. It is a great tool for maneuvering it around on pavement and flat, packed grassy ground. The quality is excellent and despite sitting out in the direct Florida sun, doesn't show any signs of significant degradation. It always operates when I do end up needing it.

For my uses, it doesn't work unfortunately. I thought I would be able to overcome the described limitations, but have not had luck yet. The way to my back yard is a mixture of sand and loose grass and is very slightly sloped. I've tried swapping in knobbier tires, recovery tracks and wood so far. My next attempt will eventually be putting a line of pavers back to where I want it.

The tool itself is great quality, easy operation and easy installation. However, consider the above if you plan on using it outside its' intended purpose.



by:

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........

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!



by:

It makes taking my bass boat in and out of my carport super easy. At age 74 it's a must have to be independent.



by:

My rating is for my application - this thing works great on a flat surface. However, even a slight slope makes it spin the wheels or throw the chain. I was concerned about this before I made the purchase and checked the maximum slope it could handle. My slope was less and I thought I was good to go. Unfortunately that was not the case. My tires would just spin even after lowering the tongue way down to add more weight on the trailer valet.

Jenny N.

7/10/2023

I wanted to ask how much of a slope are you working with?



by:

I've recently installed the STC-V211 Trailer Valet on my bass boat trailer. I ordered this to ease moving my bass boat into and out of the rear corner of my shop. To say the fit is tight is an understatement, there is 2 inches clearance for the prop and a scant 1 inch between the ball mount and the front bumper of a fully restored classic car. For years I pulled it in and out by hand, but I'm not as young as I used to be. The Trailer Valet gives me so much more control, I can pass within 3/4 inch of the car bumper without fear of collision. It does the work of moving the trailer that my back used to do. I did fabricate a mount for my trailer that is smaller than the supplied mount purely to satisfy my own sense of aesthetics. That's the good, now for the not so good, the crank handle socket split on the corner on its very first use. (see photo) I was a bit disappointed as the rest of the unit seems to be well built. I hope this is not a harbinger of things to come. Overall a bit spendy but does a good job.



by:

Pros: Mechanical advantage, relatively easy maneuverability.

Cons:
- Tire sidewalls tend to fold over some when turning (see picture). Increasing tire pressure helps.
- Squeals like the brakes on a city bus. Even though always stored indoors. No good way to lubricate without taking the whole thing apart.

Overall: Works as advertised. I move around a dual axle boat trailer with a total weight of just under 4400 pounds.



by:

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!



by:

Quality of this product is very good. I triple towed a utility trailer behind a 5th wheel on a 2 week road trip. The loaded utility trailer had to be unhooked and moved around in campsites many times in that 2 week period. The jack came in handy, but didn’t work quite as well on off pavement scenarios. I’m glad I had it on the the trip just for the fact that is a very solid trailer jack to have on a loaded unhooked trailer.



by:

The Trailer Valet 5X arrived with all required parts in a very timely manner. The installation on my boat trailer went smooth and took about 30 minutes. The Trailer Valet 5X allowed me to put my 21’ Cobia Bay boat into my 23’ garage with minimal effort.



by:

Worked for a heavy Airstream(28’) on a hill. I was impressed. Also was impressed with Paula, who I spoke with on the phone. She helped me zero in on exactly the right product. I highly recommend etrailer and if you need to move around heavy trailers in tight spots, this wheeled jack should do the trick. I used it on a driveway though, so I’m not positive on the off-road capabilities.



by:

This valet allows me to get my trailer up into a tight spot once I get it backed up close.

As I said before, this valet lets me get the trailer up into a tight spot.



by:

With a tight fit in my garage I was looking for an easier way to move the boat in and out. The trailer valet solved my problem! Quick install and easy to use, you can rotate and leave on the trailer for travel however I will just pull the pin and toss it in the truck. Product is heavier than I expected around 40 lbs so it's not light when you remove it, but not terrible. Easily moves my 17' boat and trailer with minimal effort cranking!!



by:

My trailer valet performs exactly as I had hoped and etrailer was great to deal with.

John

It works great on my Lund fiberglass 20 ft boat. It is much easier to move the boat by myself in my shed.



by:

Faulty out of the box but easy fix. My unit would only drive backward with a horrible clicking sound and could not go forward at all. I took the front cover off and found the brake post was not clearing the brake clutch even when the brake handle was held fully up. I used my Dremel to shave about 1/8th inch of metal off the corner of the brake post. Now it goes smoothly forward and back without clicking and brake still works. Nice solid unit, but I'd have to hope that basic function should be tested before shipping out a product like this!

  • How Does Trailer Valet Work?
    Hello! Unfortunately you can't try it out and return it, but there really shouldn't be any issue with the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 (which is the one I assume you are talking about) working like you think. As long as your trailer has a frame that is up to 2-3/4" wide x 6" tall, and as long as your trailer's tongue weight is 500 lbs or less and you don't need more than 15" of lift, it should work perfectly. It is pretty highly regarded by our customers who have used it with nearly 300 reviews...

  • 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.

  • Will Trailer Valet Work with a Cargo Mate Trailer
    The Trailer Valet, # STC-V211, will work on a trailer with a maximum tongue weight, or hitch weight, or 500 pounds. So if the trailer is loaded to the maximum 7,000 pounds then the tongue weight would be too high. But the empty weight of the trailer would not be a problem. The mounting brackets will fit on trailer frames up to 2-3/4 inches wide and 6 inches tall. If the tongue weight capacity and mounting bracket fits are acceptable for your trailer then you can use it.

  • 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 Valet.

  • Size of the Mounting Bolts Included with the Trailer Valet
    I went out to one of the trailers we have here at etrailer.com that has the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 installed on it and measured the bolts and they are 4-1/2 inches long and the diameter of the threaded portion of the bolt .39 inches.

  • Trailer Valet 5X Maneuverability On Gravel Pad
    The pneumatic tires on the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover - Topwind - 15" Lift - 500 lbs # STC-V211 will be able to operate on gravel without assistance if the gravel is packed. If the gravel is loose, you can use plywood or any other material that will allow the tires to get traction. The maneuverability will not be an issue as long as the tires can grab onto something. Normal gravel shouldn't be an issue unless there is uneven ground or extremely loose and dense stone.

  • Can the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack # STC-V211 be Removed Easily
    Yes, you can simply remove the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack # STC-V211 from its pipe mount by pulling the pin from the mount and it would slide right off. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Hand Cranking Speeds for Trailer Valet 2-Speed Swivel Jack # STC-V211
    For the 2-speed Trailer Valet Swivel Jack # STC-V211 the two different cranking speeds have 14-to-1 and 5-to-1 gear ratios. This means that in low gear 14 cranks equal one tire rotation; in high gear 5 cranks equal one tire rotation. At right you will find a link to a video showing the operation of the crank and also of the emergency brake lever. The Trailer Valet will fit trailer frames up to 2-3/4-inches wide x 6-inches tall and it installs using included clamps and hardware.
