Benefits of Trailer Valet Movers
Maneuver your trailer with ease
It might be difficult to position a trailer exactly where you want it, especially if space is limited. A high-quality Trailer Valet Mover makes maneuvering and positioning a trailer much easier.
State of the art design
Travel Trailer Valet movers are designed using more advanced technology than the regular dollies on the market. The price is higher than regular dollies but the value you get with the Trailer Valet Movers is priceless in terms of ease of use, quality and durability.
It takes far less time to steer a small and lightweight Trailer Valet Mover and connect it to your trailer than it does to try to connect the trailer to your vehicle’s tow hitch with your car. Rather than needing to reverse and then re-approach many times, it can typically be done in a single effort.
Features of Trailer Valet Movers
The most crucial factor to consider when purchasing a Trailer Valet Mover is the amount of weight you intend to move.
Tongue Weight Capacity
The tow vehicle’s steering will be impacted if the tongue weight is excessively heavy. If the tongue is too light, part of the load should be moved ahead of the trailer’s axle. Adjust the load so that more of the weight is behind the trailer’s axle if the tongue is too heavy. The tongue weight should be 10 to 15% of the trailer’s entire weight; for example, if you’re towing 5,000 pounds, the tongue weight should be 500 to 750 pounds.
Moving trailers can be difficult due to their weight and size. That’s why having a Trailer Valet Mover that can help you easily maneuver your trailer is beneficial. For example, you can attach the Trailer Valet Mover to your trailer and easily park your trailer into a tight spot without having to use your vehicle. It’s easy because you have a better field of vision and maneuverability compared to parking your trailer with a car.
The Trailer Valet Movers are made of very durable materials. They feature an all-steel construction and a signature powder coating that prevents rust and corrosion. Because of these features the Trailer Valet Movers are very dependable and will last for a long time.
Types of Trailer Valet Movers
The MV Series
The Trailer Valet 5X and XL have proven to be the most reliable and cost-effective in their class which allows you to move trailers weighing from 5,000 to 10,000 lbs.
If you have a small travel trailer with a weight of 2,800lbs and tongue weight of around 280lbs the 5X would be perfect to move it around your driveway and park it wherever you want. On the other hand if you have a large travel trailer that weighs up to 10,000 lbs with a tongue weight of around 670 lbs you will need the XL to easily move and park your trailer wherever you want.
They are constructed with rust-resistant steel structure with zinc-nickel coating and all movers are additionally finished with a corrosion-resistant powder coating.
Deep treads and “Never Flat” solid rubber tires provide great surface grip and stability.
The 5X and XL may be bracket-mounted to the trailer frame. For added control, the XL accepts 2′′ and 2-5/16′′ balls. The High and Low Gear ratio increases power with less effort which means it’s much easier to move the weight of your trailer.
The 5X is perfect to tow up to 5,000 lbs and the tongue weight cap caps out at 500 lbs while the XL can help you tow up to 10,000 lbs with a tongue weight capacity at 1,000 lbs.
The 5X would be perfect if you have a small trailer you usually use for short camping trips and need to tow it; it is also great for boat trailers. The XL will allow you to move heavier loads with higher tongue weight like an RV, a heavier boat trailer, cargo trailer, or a tiny home trailer.
The JX Series
The JX Series drill-powered jacks are the first of their type, and they make lifting and lowering your trailer a breeze. With these jacks you can reduce the hassle of manually cranking with your hands and start moving your trailer with ease.
The JX Series include a couple of different jacks that can handle different weight capacities. The JX2-C or the JX2-S are perfect for a trailer that weighs up to 2,000 lbs, so a teardrop trailer or something similar will be no problem at all. The JX5-C and JX5-S are able to handle more weight so it’s great for lifting up small travel trailers up to 5,000 lbs.
The innovative gear system is standard on all JX jacks, except the 2-C which is 1:1 ensuring optimum efficiency while minimising heat retention. The wrinkle black powder coating is applied on top and the jacks are compatible with any 18-24V drill and the Trailer Valet Drill Attachment. All jacks include a foot plate (if purchased via the Trailer Valet Website), and a wheel attachment. The sleeve fitting on side mount jacks provides the best protection while maintaining a smooth slide every time. The weight capacity of the JX Series ranges from 2,000 lbs to 5,000 lbs.
These are excellent if you want to be able to set up your trailer as quickly as possible so you can enjoy your adventure. They work well wherever you go so you can go on fishing trips or set up in a camping ground.
Trailer Valet RVR
The Trailer Valet RVR is a fully remote-controlled trailer rover that has completely taken the trailer industry by storm. There are four models with towing capabilities ranging from 3,500 to 12,000 pounds.
The RVR3 is perfect for towing motorcycle trailers, or jet ski trailers up to 3,500 lbs with a tongue weight cap of 350lbs. The RVR5 can handle more weight maxing out at 5,500 lbs so it can easily move teardrop trailers, small travel trailers, A-frame campers, pop up campers and even large boat trailers. The RVR9 is capable of towing even heavier loads capping out at 9,000 lbs so you can use it if you have an empty large travel trailer, or a small horse trailer. The strongest one that can pull the most weight is the RVR12 and it can be used to move around a large enclosed utility trailer or a large travel trailer up to 12,000 lbs.
The RVR has an aluminum body which provides for a lightweight construction and corrosion resistance for a long time. It comes with a remote control which has a great range and may be securely used from up to 40 feet away with a single button press. Each RVR is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery that can last up to 30 minutes on a single charge.
All four models have an incredible adaptability with a 360-degree range of motion to help you find that ideal location. The tongue weight ranges between 350 pounds and 1,200 pounds. The RVR12 has 3 different speeds you can utilize to further speed up your parking time.
The best thing you can possibly get if you need to move your trailer around the yard on hard surfaces or easily park it in tight spaces is one of the RVR Series remote controlled rovers.
