Motorized Trailer dolly


Today I purchased an R-pod 180. Very excited to pick up next week however worried about backing.

Has any had experience with the product Trailer Valet?

It is much less expensive that Parkit360.

many thanks!

Are you only going to move it on level ground? If so, with such a light tongue weight, maybe a manual dolly such as 600 lb. Heavy Duty Trailer Dolly would suit?

I would practice backing up. You almost guaranteed to be in a situation when towing where backing up to get out of something is necessary.

Wow appreciate the quick replies.

My drive does have a bit of a slope so don't think I could push the trailer up. And the location I would like to store it is a bit tight.

I like the idea of the two speeds and the option of attaching a drill to this unit.

another concern is the space available on the hitch of the small trailer. Since I don't have it yet I can not go and look!
