Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware Received promptly and well packaged. After install began discovering issues. Noted both tires had 12 lbs. or air (max is 85) Inside tire really gets stressed when changing directions Moves as advertised but the tire valve stems were improperly aligned and were scraped and torn up by the lower portion of the Valet's housing. Took it for a quick drive & trailered in the stow position. It sounded like a box of bolts rattling around. Called Overton's and returned this afternoon. This weighs almost 49 lbs. & had to pay over $42 to ship it back! Concept is good, I wanted it to work so badly but more R & D needs to go into this before serious big boat owners will install these on their trailers!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great on concrete or asphalt; I am dissatisfied with this but my situation may not match yours: I live on a barrier island off North Carolina's east coast. The salt air has done a job on the finish of my dolly though that's hardly unique. What I can't get around is that I have a slightly sloped marl driveway and the dolly wheel just digs a hole. Useless for me. Also converting from trailering position to operating position is a minor hassle. That being said, on the few occasions where I found myself on a solid finished surface such as concrete or asphalt: it worked perfectly. If I had a paved driveway I'd keep it and be very happy with it. As that's not my situation, I uninstalled it and went back to the old way of moving my boat: muscular strain. So would I recommend this to a friend? That depends on whether his driveway was paved or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work as advertised I bought this last fall to move a 24' 3,000lbs tritoon on a tandem axial trailer. My door opening only had about 1 1/2' on each side. I was able to get through the door with no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more bothering my neighbor It was easy to install, and I left my old jack on my trailer. I imagine that someone would want to take it. The nice thing is that it is compact in size and light enough to toss into the garage once hitched. But it does tilt up if you want to leave it on there. The real use for me is backing my trailer back into my side yard. Before I had to come in at a jack knife angle, since it's so narrow, but now I can get it close, unhitch and crank it back in while adjusting the angle via the trailer valet. Plus the brake lets me go back and put down the tire chucks. The bad things are if I was going up the whole driveway, my arm would get tired from cranking, it wouldn't work on a large toy hauler since it's weight limit is 5K lbs, but that's great for my 19' utility trailer. Compared to other trailer movers that are motorized, this is way way more affordable and safer imo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to install I only have 4 inches total side clearance to get my bass boat in and out of the garage, making it hard to move in and out with my truck, also my drive way is on an incline so can't just roll the 3000 lb boat in an out, but with the trailer valet I can move the boat easly. Once I get it hooked to my truck I just pull the pin slip off the dolly and leave it in the garage, so it doesn't get stolen at the launch ramp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Well worth the money, delivers on everything it says, the only draw back was the directions need to be clearer, i still have one bolt that came with the package and it shows up in the pictures of the directions but it does not tell you what to do with it. It is currently installed on a 2007 Q8 Tahoe, boat and trailer weight is 4800lbs and i can move it by myself now

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product, hardware not the best The product is good and works as advertised. Very easy to install and use. However, after a few days after install and rain, I see some rust in the hardware. This product is for boat trailers and therefore constantly exposed to water and rust should not happen at all. Hardware should be of a quality appropriate for its intended use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Great product but mine came with the wrong tires. Supposed to have 85psi and mine had 45psi. Contacted customer service and have not heard a thing back. That ticks me off. The trailer valet does make putting your boat away very easy when you have a tight space. Overall a very good product just poor customer service.

Will the 'valet' fit both 2" and 2 5/8" balls?

Asked by: Vita
This valet does not actually attach to your ball hitch, but instead attaches to the frame of the trailer to help you maneuver it to your vehicle's ball hitch.

How far down below the frame does this hang? Measurement from bottom of frame to ground when installed and cranked all the way up.

Asked by: rocktoy
Hello Rocktoy, When the Trailer Valet is in the down position, the trailer tongue will be about 14" from the ground. When the Trailer Valet is in the up position (parallel to the frame), it is about 4" below the trailer frame. Thank you, Steve

We move a 21 ft Yamaha jet boat on a dual wheel trailer in and out of our garage but must make a more than 90 degree turn to get it in or out. We normally have to literally kick the wheel on our current swivel jack to get it to turn - which has resulted in failure and now we are replacing. Will this Jack make the turn? It does not look like the wheel will rotate and that was not one of the demonstrations in the video.
Asked by: shannen
Hello Shannen, Yes. The Trailer Valet wheel has the ability to turn 180 degrees. However, tandem axle trailers have more resistance than single axle trailers, so please use caution when when turning the trailer. Thank you, Steve

will this work with a 20 ft boat on a single axle trailer on a non cement area (mostly dirt)?

Asked by: Karla
Hello Karla, Yes. The Valet Jack will work on your single axle trailer. If the dirt is very soft or loose it may not work as well as it is intended too. Thank you, Steve

I need this to move a 17ft. bass boat in and out of a parking area that is too tight for vehicle hook up. Roughly 10 feet in distance, on about a 15% incline. Will it do the job? Thanks

Asked by: Wade
It depends on what the trailer/tongue weights are on your boat, but as long as it is under the 5000lb max trailer weight and 500lb max tongue weight, this item should work perfect for you. It will certainly make steering the trailer in and out of a tight parking spot much easier. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact our technical assist line at 1-800-334-6541 and someone will be more than happy to help you further.
