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.

I live in the last house on a dead-end street with no room to back my 21 foot travel trailer onto the street because the street ends at my driveway. I have had to back the trailer about 125 yards when I return from a trip so that I can have the trailer situated correctly in the driveway. Backing down the street between parked cars is not fun and highly stressful. I saw the Trailer Valet XL online and it looked like just the solution for my problem. Now I can pull into the driveway normally when pulling the trailer, unhitch and move my truck out of the way, and use the Trailer Valet to easily maneuver the trailer, turning it 180 degrees, backing it into its space, ready for the next trip.The automatic brake when you release the handle is fantastic, because I operate the valet by myself and I have to stop several times while using it to get my bearings of where the trailer is in reference to the fence and the driveway edge. I use a RYOBI 18v drill that I already had. I don't think it would be as easy just using the crank handle because the gear reduction is so great that it would take a lot of cranking by hand to move it and would be more likely to strain my back. I'm 62 and have no problem moving the 3200 pound trailer around. Thanks!

Great. Just ordered a 2 inch ball for my boat trailer. Can’t wait to start parking it more easily.

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.

Works just as expected.

We have had this product for about 1 year now and we love it ! it is a bit pricy but it has paid for itself in 6 months compared to RV storage costs of over $100 a month, now we are saving money because we can Valet out trailer into our very tight RV spot that we could not get into with our tow vehicle. This product is worth every penny and is sturdy and reliable, if your on the fence about purchasing, just know it works as advertised. I tried to upload photos for you to see how tight, but I could not get them to load. so I measured, I have 14 inches total to deal with, could not do it with tow vehicle, but is a breeze with the trailer valet ! very happy ! : )

I bought the unit because PG&E is putting in safety bars to protect the gas meter located inside my car port. This will reduce the width in which to maneuver the trailer with my truck. I’m more concerned about damaging my trailer then hitting the gas meter. I’ve only needed to us it once so far, it worked as advertised. Although I did notice a little play/movement or wobble in the unit. It was not with the ball/hitch attachment, it is where the ball attachment connects to the Valet unit. The wobble didn’t seem to affect movement of the trailer and I didn’t feel concerned about safety. I used a drill to help drive the valet, that was real slick and easy. The brake/handle is pretty sensitive, engages the break with minimal movement. I’d rather have the quick braking action then otherwise, my trailer weighs around 7,000 lbs.

Works great. I use the Trailer Valet XL to rotate a Surveyor 195 travel trailer (~5,000 lbs, 500 lb tongue weight) in my mostly flat asphalt driveway 180 degrees. I read some reviews that complained about the locking nut, but I followed the instructions carefully (lifting the trailer valet off the ground using the trailer's jack and then tightening) and didn't experience any problem. Some reviews also complained about the brake engaging quickly if dropped slightly -- it does, but I would prefer a hair-trigger brake over having a runaway trailer. You do have to stay bent over to use it, but that feels like an OK trade-off for the compact size if using occasionally. If I were moving a trailer every day, I might have bought the battery-powered tank version instead.

Did exactly what it was suppose to do, move my dual axle trailer into a tight spot even on a slight incline. Be aware that if you let loose of the handle it will lock the drive and the drill will twist your wrist.


Comments
Sorry to hear that. It is a safety feature if you trip or your drill that once you let go of the handle it will lock the camper into position so that it does not roll away.

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. You will be pleased

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.


Comments
After having this for a year and using it several times it is still doing the job I want it to do. The only thing that I have found to be a problem is that it is very hard to turn the valet at a 90 degree angle to the item moving and move it. If I only try to to do about 75 degree turn into the place where it will be stored it works awesome. Would still highly recommend this to anyone having to put a trailer in a tight spot.

Great product but beware when using a drill. The brake lever has a tendency to drop slightly, if you are not careful. This results in the gear mechanism stopping abruptly and spinning your drill in your hand. Even after it happened the first time (sprained my wrist) and I was careful after, it happened a few more times. Other than that, excellent well-machined product!!



- TVXL25
by:

the worst piece of machinery we have ever purchased. It was difficult to put together, the instructions were unclear, and it did not work well when we finally got it going. the handle had to have constant upward pressure -- not just held straight -- to keep the brake from engaging -- merely holding it up straight resulted in a twisted and almost fractured wrist because of the touchy break system. We will be returning it.

Worked like a charm. My 17.5ft aluminum flatbed with my race car, extra tires and toolbox weighs over 5,000lb. I need to park the whole thing inside my garage. My trailer backing-up skills are nowhere near good enough to back this trailer in through a standard 7'11" garage door (trailer width is 7'6", leaving less than 3 inches on either side.) Trailer Valet XL 2-5/16 made the job easy. My driveway has a gentle slope, and the concrete has seen better days. I was a bit worried. But, this thing had no problem manouvering the trailer. I did use a 20v drill; but the hand crank would have worked too. The collar holds the 2-5/16 ball snug, and makes the whole setup rock solid and easy to steer. etrailer shipping was fast, and the product was packaged securely.

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!

The unit seems well made. That said, I have not been able to use it. When I try, the tires spin in the grass and Don't move the trailer. Also, regardless of how much I tighten the ball hitch collar, the unit wants to tilt and that results in it going nowhere. Maybe this has worked for some, in some situations. For me, not so much. Unable to move a 17 foot boat on a trailer on asphalt or on grass. Unable to move a 24 foot empty enclosed haul mark car trailer on asphalt or on grass.


Comments
Thank you for your review. The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive part TVXL25 is not designed for grass. It works better on level ground like asphalt. It will not work properly if the trailer is over 10,000 lb gross weight or has more than a 1,000 lb tongue weight.

This is one of the most useful products I have purchased in a long time. I have successfully moved a 6000 pound travel trailer as well as a 10000 boat trailer with this using nothing more than a 20 volt cordless drill. Very maneuverable and easy to use. I have also used the hand crank to move both of the trailers which is also easy but gets very aerobic after a short time. One tip: make sure the locking ring is very tight before attempting to move your trailer because it will work loose if not tightened securely.


Comments
Still one of the best products Ive purchased in a long time. Every time I use it I wonder how I got along without it.

Easy to set up but, not as easy as the video to operate. The handle/break won't stay upright and the slightest touch downward sets the break. Won't work with a 20V drill. Not sure what power of a drill you need but, my 20V won't budge my enclosed trailer. Cranking by hand is exhausting. Be careful to not move the wheels in the wrong direction or the entire unit will tip over.


Comments
You will need to use a non-impact drill to operate the dolly and the adapter will work best with half inch 18V drills.

Be sure to get the sleeve tight to the bottom of your hitch on the trailer to keep the dolly from tipping. It works well with a cordless drill however you must go slow.

  • 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.

  • 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. Since it sounds like you simply need the 2 inch ball you will just need the hitch ball # TVHB2 and not the combination with the base. This hitch ball will work perfectly in the base of your Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25.

  • 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.

  • 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 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!).

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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...

    The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2" Hitch Ball - 10,000 lbs item # TVXL2 has a 1,000 lbs tongue weight capacity. This should easily accommodate your boat trailer on a flat surface and over a slight incline. The Trailer Valet XL 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 permeability of the ground. If the wood chips are soft and wet you may sink in and spin. As long as the gravel isn't...

  • 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.

  • Can I Use The Trailer Valet On My Concrete Driveway That Has a Slight Incline For Water Run Off?
    While the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL25 does say it is intended for use on flat surfaces a slight incline or decline will not be a problem for this dolly. Trailer Valet has tested and allows for up to a 10% grade or 5.7 degrees of incline or decline. I would not recommend using the Trailer Valet on any surface that if your 2019 Jayco Jay Flight was disconnected from your tow vehicle, it would roll away without a wheel chock.

  • 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.
