Trailer Valet Offers Two New Trailer Dolly Models

Wed Mar 14, 2018

Trailer Valet is rolling out two new models of its Trailer Valet heavy-duty trailer dolly products.

The Trailer Valet XL offers a 1,000-pound tongue-weight capacity and a load-bearing weight of up to 10,000 pounds. In addition to the original Trailer Valet's standard automatic brakes, the Valet XL features 9-inch pneumatic tires that can withstand 500 pounds of pressure per tire, a coating the can withstand 300 hours or corrosion, and greater gear reduction to make cranking easier. The highlight of the Valet XL is an adapter for an 18-volt drill that can raise and lower the dolly attachment. The Valet XL also comes equipped with a patented ball attachment that lets the dolly work with nearly any trailer.

The Trailer Valet RVR resembles a NASA rover, mounted on heavy rubber treads that move in response to a wireless remote controller. The RVR can pivot up to 360 degrees and uses four gear motors to motorize moving it and any trailers to which its attached. The RVR is available in 3,500-, 5,500-, and 9,000-pound weight classes.
