Question Anyone heard of a "Trailer Valet"?

Hello, we are new Sharock 21SS owner and I have been on this site search for ideas and mods. I was wondering if anyone has ever used "Trailer Valet". It sounds like an interesting idea. It's a hand crank trailer dolly. I have some tight turns to get my camper on the side of the house and I was thinking this may be better than trying to get in there with the Explorer. Anybody have any experiance with this dolly?

Looks like a multi-geared handcrank.

Put a front hitch on the Explorer, alot more control than the rear hitch, plus you can see where you're going.

BTW, congrats on your Shamrock 21SS. We just picked up our Roo 21SS 2 weeks ago. Can't wait to go camping in it.

So no one has ever used this? It would take me a bit of negotiations (read begging) with the wife but it does look like I could use the for my tight spots next to the garage.

Not a bad idea...compare prices for each, plus you could use a basket in the front of your tow rig to carry misc stuff as needed.

That looks pretty easy. I don't have that trouble if I let my wife back it up and I guide her on it other wise she can't guide worth a ****.
