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 am disappointed by the trailer valet XL dolly. It probably works on a very smooth surface, but on my concrete driveway it simply doesn't. Even though my driveway is level, the dolly keeps sliding and I cannot move my boat, even though it is "only" around 6,000 pounds. Unfortunately, the dolly has no use for me.


Comments
Adding some weight to your tongue weight is recommended. If your trailer is too light, the trailer dolly wont work properly. Does your drive way have an incline?
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 06/06/2022
Thanks for the follow up and for reading my review. You guys sure do have good customer service. My driveway is completely level, yes, and the surface is concrete and should be very “grippy”. My sense actually was that the trailer may be too heavy rather than the tongue weight being too light. Maybe I was wrong. It’s a boat trailer and the weight distribution is not something I can manipulate a lot, unfortunately. Next time I will try adding some weight to the tongue somehow and then see what it does.

The Trailer Valet Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly works well but has a couple of drawbacks.

Pros:
• Moves a 2500 lb. trailer with ease on a level surface or gentle incline.
• A power drill moves the trailer, using the low gear, at a low walking speed. It would be impossible for a reasonably strong man to move this trailer at all.

Cons:
• When using an electric drill to move the trailer, you must make sure that the brake lever is kept fully raised. If you let the lever drop, the brake will engage and the drill will spin out of your hand, twisting your wrist.
• Even with the collar fully tightened with the supplied wrench, if the trailer speeds up(coming off a bump) or slows down suddenly (applying the brake), the ball tries to cam itself out of the hitch. It hasn’t done any apparent damage, but it makes me nervous.
• If you try to power the trailer up a moderate grade, like the apron of a garage entrance, the drive wheels will slip. I defeat this problem by approaching the apron at an angle so only one wheel goes over the rise at a time.

Despite the cons, this is the only way for me to get my trailer into the shed, so I am glad to have it. I wish Trailer Valet would make their drive wheels more “grippy” somehow and use a larger locking plate over the locking collar.




by:

Complete waste of money. Cannot get traction on my 5000 lb boat and tandem trailer. Wheels just spin. Junk for me.


Comments
This valet should only be used on concreteasphalt and not on gravel or dirt applications.
Katrina B - 10/14/2022


by:

Reliable and easy to use. The dolly is small enough to carry in the SUV, which makes it useful at our destinations as well as at home. You do have to be pretty strong to use it, but I am very happy with the purchase.




by:

This trailer dolly is great! We use it at the end of every trip. It allows me to position our 3000lb camper in a tight space beside the external garage. The maneuverability and brakes are amazing and safe.




by:

It works, but not without a lot of effort. Our trailer is light (1,500 lbs) and is on a very slight grade. It takes two people to move it safely. Surface is pavers. Wheels don't grip well at all. Softer, better gripping tires would be better. Would not recommend for use on any grade.




by:

It just didn't work right for me. The wheel would spin but not move the trailer much. I also couldn't seem to get the valet to stay upright as it simply wanted to wander out from under the trailer rather than move it. It was a waste of money for me. My trailer is only 3200 lbs.


Comments
I wanted to reach out to you in regards to your review on the trailer valet. When you were moving the trailer were you on a flat surface like pavement or was it on gravel or dirt? Was there an incline or a decline at all? I know that this may seem like a basic question however what size ball does your trailer coupler use?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 02/23/2022
I used it a couple times. Once it was wet concrete and the other on dirtgrass. Terrain was flat. The hitch is 2”. It seemed like there wasn’t enough weight on the tongue. The wheel just spun and the device was running out from underneath the hitch. I had tightened it up as far as I could.
-- comment by: Gary - 02/23/2022
I did hear back from the manufacturer about the Valet. The tongue weight of the trailer does factor into the use of it. The typical load that this Valet handles is 1000 pounds and to allow it to work better for you, you would need to add weight to the tongue weight of the trailer. A Valet option that would be more suited for your trailer would be part # STC-V211
Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover - Topwind - 15" Lift - 5,000 lbs

which has a capacity of 5000 lbs and 500 lbs of tongue weight.

Perfect for the task of backing my 3000 lb popup Chalet into the gravel side yard. What used to be a real chore for my wife and me is now almost trivial. An expensive little tool but worth it on the long run. Tried it with the cordless drill attachment but for this little trailer it’s not necessary.


Comments
The trailer dolly works great! Parking my 2500 lb trailer in a narrow side yard is almost a non-event now.
Bruce - 08/28/2022


by:

Really a great and easy to use trailer mover. My new boat only had 2 inches on each side and 3 inches in height to clear the garage opening. With my truck it was a tedious and stressful to get the boat inside. The trailer valet made it easy and stress free to get the boat inside the garage. I did have one issue. When I released the valet from the the hitch, I didn’t have a good grip and the handle dropped and chipped the grip. I don’t think it would have chipped if it was completely on the handle. I called customer service and Mellisa T. listened to my concern, contacted someone in that area, called me back in about an hour and has a replacement part shipping. Thank you Melissa T.!


Comments
Great! It works perfect for putting my Ranger 622, about 5,000 lbs. with trailer, in and out of the garage. My driveway has an incline into the garage. Even if the concrete is wet from rain it goes right up the grade, no traction issue. Great product! People who have trouble on inclines need to raise the trailer wheel off the ground so the valet has all the weight.
Scott V - 04/25/2022


by:

This thing is a joke!! I have a lot of different trailers small to large and this only worked on a 2500 lb or lighter trailer and struggled if it was dual axle. Absolute Trash and will never buy another again. E trailer is a great site , the trailer Valet is garbage. IF you want to try one just search online for someone mad selling it for nothing




by:

I didn't have high hopes for this (maybe that's more because I've been burned by too many products in the past), but WOW! It works!

About my trailer: it's 20' long, ~3100# but is heavy on the tongue (600#)

My trailer is stored at a storage facility between two much larger RVs and a post that's attracted to trailers. Without a lot of room to maneuver, I've always dreaded the return trip when it's time to tuck the trailer back into its home.

Yesterday I returned and one of the RVs was gone, but rather than celebrate - I decided to try the Trailer Valet to see how it works. I thought if something went haywire, at least i would only damage one other RV.

My concern with the Trailer Valet XL vs the other systems I looked at was its braking ability. I have to climb a small hill (1 - 2 degrees) into my slot, and my worst fear was a run-away trailer - so I placed my wife on 'Full Chock Alert' and hooked it up.

I turned the crank, it moved. I turned the crank and moved the handle and it shifted directions. Over the course of about 10 minutes I moved it about 40 feet; up a hill and between the lines. My wife was so impressed that I rolled the trailer into it's spot using just my arms she brought me some water and offered to take me to lunch. I'm not going to tell her she could probably do it too. :)

The secret is making sure it is TIGHT to the coupler. Use the wrench to tighten it, tighten it some more, and then one more time. When you hit your knuckles you're getting there.

Highly recommended and I'm just sorry I didn't know about this years ago.




by:

Product works well on fairly level hard surfaces. A high quality chain lube stopped my unit from creaking and clicking. Quality silicone spray on the axle bushings also helped. Can’t imagine moving my boat around without it. Trailer valet jack mounting bracket makes using my valet much easier and safer.

I have an awkward parking situation. The narrow alleyway behind my home is a dead end. Barely room to maneuver my 14’ cargo trailer and even more of a challenge with our new 26’ travel trailer. Last year I removed all of the broken concrete and put down crushed rock and compacted really tight so it’s almost like concrete. I read just about every review out there on this unit and was worried with my surface. It’s pretty flat but not perfect so I went ahead and purchased the Trailer Dolly XL. In order for me to fit my trailer it has to be parallel to the alley and fence. I was pretty surprised at just how well this unit worked. I was able to maneuver the trailer into place, not without a challenge but what is a little challenge in life right?! The unit works amazingly well for my situation and yes it can dig holes, it is a challenge but thinking through the process and using wood and maybe even a little helpful push and it will do the job. Definitely a challenge but it works exactly as it is designed and I am happy I purchased this unit. If your on the fence I can recommend this unit and if you have a challenging area like mine it will take some brain power to make it work but it does what it is supposed to do and fairly easy to use with a drill motor which is the only way I have used it so far. Also the coupler needs to be tight as possible with this kind of weight. Others that have listed negatives I can see the complaints and it takes some brain power to overcome the challenges so if your that person I believe it can work for you!




by:

I often times try to economize, figured I paid quite a bit for the trailer valet. OMG, one of my best purchases ever. This thing lets me safely and relatively easily put my rather large RV trailer into the garage single handedly. Way better than with a spotter and pushing with the tow vehicle. Wish I had purchased one sooner. I really love how well it works and the quality of the unit is superb.




by:

The TVXL2 works great, Once I called TV instead of trying to deal with your techs and was told there by TV was a thicker spacer plate being incorporated in the process, the new plate solved my issues. With all due apologies If your techs are not up to speed with products you offer possibly you should suggest a customer contact the manufacture directly instead of never returning my messages. You offer good prices but honestly knowledgeable tech support on some products. Will I purchase more products, absolutely, I purchased the Longview mirrors from you this spring and they are great. Not trying to be negative, you're a great company to purchase from but possibly not very dedicated to customer support with tech support.

On my amputee and it’s too hard to bend over and hold the handle and try to crank it it will not work

Another Trailer Valet that may serve you better is part # TVRVR9

Within 5 minutes of unboxing my new Trailer Valet XL, I moved my Aliner Camper from out of a very narrow carport, 30 feet down a slight sloped driveway and then back in the carport. There was no installation and the instructions were very easy to follow. I had no problems moving and maneuvering the trailer with the hand crank, much easier than I had thought it would be. We will be camping this week end and would hope to update this review after our trip. The XL is a great product and very well made.




by:

Works well moving my Runaway Camper. Grippier tires would help on grass. I lay out pieces of plywood that helps on my gravel strip and grass.


Comments
Good. More aggressive tire tread would be sn improvement when using on grass or plywood sheets used over grass areas.

It was Well Worth the Money for Me! I have a Single Axle Rangertrail Trailer with a Ranger Z518 Boat that is Very Heavy. I have to maneuver it at a 90* turn with a Slight UP Hill Grade. I’m 66 and it is a little more than I wanted to Shove Around, So I saw a video of the Trailer Valet XL and Purchased it! I use it a lot and I’m VERY Pleased with its Performance. Use the Drill Attachment and it’s a Breeze. It takes a few Extra minutes to hook it up, but it’s so much easier to move my Bass Rig!


Comments
It continues to be a Great Investment
George - 02/08/2022


by:

OK, first of all, it works. There is definitely a learning curve is using the Trailer Valet, especially with a drill. The main issue I've found is that if you let up on the steering/braking handle at all while you are moving your trailer, the brake will engage. When this occurs, the torque from the drill will transfer to your hand/wrist. Ouch. Otherwise, the unit works as advertised.




by:

Works as advertised. Without this product trying to get my boat in a very specific place in my garage was very difficult and physically too much. I bought a 3/8 right angle drill attachment to utilize the drill adapter but the crank handle was so easy I just used the handle. I am on pavement and not much downward slope in driveway. Very cool.




by:

Sold it after one use. The XL was able to move my 22 ft boat into my back yard onto an RV pad which has a small decline. The XL was not able retrieve the boat off the RV pad with a minor incline.




by:

This just didn't work for our 2021 Salem Hemisphere 19RBHL. It just kept folding under the ball and leaving the whole tongue weight on our arms!!
Finally sold it on [online] for a substantial loss!


Comments
I checked and this cannot be used on any flat or paved incline or decline that is steeper than 10 degrees. I am sorry to hear that you needed to sell the dolly.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 06/16/2022


by:

Super easy set up used on a curved driveway that was impossible to back my Skeeter Fiberglass Walleye boat into the garage stall with a vehicle. The valet XL worked way beyond my expectations i should also add that the driveway has a 10% grade. A+ for the valet xl.




by:

With this trailer valet I pull in my driveway, unhitch and turn trailer 180 degrees and park it in front of my garage.
Couldn't do it without it.

    Would a dolly possibly be easier to maneuver the trailer? Sounds like what you are really wanting to do is hand guide a trailer into a parking spot and were wanting a winch to help control it and guide it.

  • Is There a Tow Dolly that Can Move Trailer up Slight Incline
    You wouldn't want to try and move a trailer up an incline with the MT70881. The dolly itself would be fine but you would most likely not be able to pull that heavy of a trailer up an incline. And then if you somehow did get it going up the incline at all it would become dangerous as it would want to roll back by itself. The only dolly we have that can do inclines safely is the Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25 which has a crank and a brake built into it. This is for a coupler with a 2-5/16 inch...

  • Trailer Valet XL Minimum Hitch Ball Height
    The lowest height for the hitch ball on the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive - 2" Hitch Ball - 1,000 lbs TW # TVXL2 (or the # TVXL25 with the larger hitch ball) is 19-1/4 inches at the top of the hitch ball, so you'd be a little tongue high when moving your Scamp Camper. The extra 3-1/2 inches will bring the back end of your camper down, so you will want to account for that when moving the camper with this unit.

  • Wheels On Trailer Valet XL Won't Turn When Crank Is Turned
    The lever/handle at the top of the Trailer Valet XL # TVXL2 is what is going to lock/unlock your wheels, where the crank on the side of the unit is what will get the wheels to move- you're not able to push and pull the Trailer Valet XL since these units are gear driven. If your wheels will not turn when you're turning the crank and the level at the top of the valet is raised so that the brake is released, it sounds like there might be an issue with the crank shaft or gear drive. If you...

  • Can Trailer Valet Be Used on Inclines
    I attached a picture that shows that the Trailer Valet XL # TVXL2 can handle inclines pretty well. As long as the ramp is concrete or pavement you should be fine. You'd most likely want to lead with the tongue of the trailer down the incline. I also attached a review video for this product that shows it in use on the same incline.

  • Dolly Recommendation to Make Moving a Pop Up Camper by Hand Easy
    For your situation the easiest dolly solution we have is the Trailer Valet XL part # TVXL2. This attaches to the coupler ball and gives you an easy to turn crank which turns the wheels of the dolly allowing it to easily be moved. Standard dollies will be much more difficult to move. Especially in gravel. The Trailer Valet can be used in gravel if it's packed pretty tight and not super deep. I attached a review video link for this for you to check out as well. This is designed for a 2 inch...

  • Does Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly Feature Braking System
    The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL2 referenced in your question does indeed have an auto-brake function that engages as soon as the steering handle is released. Doing this brings the wheels on the dolly to an immediate stop. I have attached a demonstration video below on this product. If you skip ahead to the 2:25 mark you can see this function in action. The Trailer Valet XL is rated for trailers that have a gross weight of up to 10,000 pounds and a tongue weight of up to 1,000...

  • Maximum Incline for Use of Trailer Valet XL TVXL25
    Hitching or unhitching a trailer is always safest when both the vehicle and trailer are on level ground. This reduces the chance for the trailer to roll. Yes, you could use 4 wheel chocks like # MT70073 to prevent a single axle trailer from rolling while you hitch it to or unhitch it from your vehicle but naturally it is always best to avoid even potential safety risks when you're enjoying your RV. The Trailer Valet XL # TVXL25 does have an automatic brake to prevent the trailer from rolling...

  • Can the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly be Used on Grass
    The Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly with Chain Drive # TVXL2 that you are looking at actually has solid rubber tires that use deep treads so you can use it on tricky surfaces like gravel, dirt, or grass. It is meant for use on pavement or well packed surfaces but the deep tread does help as well. I do recommend using a powered drill and the included drill bit for your application though as traveling through grass will be a bit more difficult.
