TALLMADGE, Ohio – Moving or jacking up your boat or travel trailer are not fun tasks, especially in your driveway or other tight spaces. Trailer Valet products won’t make those jobs any more fun, but they will sure make them a lot easier, according to a press release from Summit Racing Equipment.
Trailer Valet Trailer Dollies
The Trailer Valet Trailer Dolly makes it easy to hook up to and move your trailer. Instead of moving your tow vehicle around trying to line it up with the trailer tongue, the dolly lets you move the trailer to the vehicle. Just set the dolly to the desired height, disengage the brake, then turn the crank to steer the trailer to the tow vehicle. The Trailer Valet can steer the trailer in any direction, and has a patented drive system with high (4:1) and low (12:1) drive gears to make moving the trailer easier. You can even use a cordless drill to move the dolly on level surfaces if you’re so inclined.
Other features include dual 9-inch diameter solid rubber tires and an auto brake function that engages when the steering handle is released. Summit Racing carries three versions of the Trailer Valet:
The TV5X is rated for trailers up to 5,000 pounds. It mounts to the trailer frame with the included bracket and can be folded up and stowed in place right on the trailer. The TV5X is recommended for boat and cargo trailers and does not come with the cordless drill attachment.
The XLBK is rated for trailers up to 8,000 pounds. It’s a side-mount design and comes with a bracket that mounts the dolly to the trailer frame.
The XL20 and XL25 dollies are rated for trailers up to 10,000 pounds. You can install either dolly with the included frame mounting bracket or the patented ball attachment that fits 2-inch (XL20) or 2 5/16-inch (XL25) trailer tongues and provides extra maneuverability.
JX Series Trailer Jacks
Trailer Valet’s JX Series Trailer Jacks let you work smarter, not harder. You can raise and lower one with an 18-, 20-, or 24-volt cordless drill by replacing the hand crank with the included drill attachment. If you need the exercise, you can manually operate the jack with the hand crank.
The JX Series Trailer Jacks have a patented gear system that provides maximum efficiency with less heat retention for longer life. An internal sleeve fitting minimizes internal component wear to ensure smooth operation, and the black wrinkle powdercoat finish is rated up to 700 hours of corrosion resistance.
Trailer Valet JX Series Trailer Jacks are available in center-mount and side-mount versions in your choice of 2,000- and 5,000-pound weight capacities. A foot plate is included.
Blackout Series Adjustable Ball Mounts
Trailer Valet Blackout Series Adjustable Ball Mounts are made from high-grade aluminum with a wrinkle black powdercoating rated up to 700 hours of corrosion resistance. The Class IV drop hitch mounts fit two-inch square hitch receivers and come with reversible 2- and 2 5/16-inch cast steel balls. Blackout Series Adjustable Ball Mounts are available in these versions:
