If you’ve ever hauled a trailer, then you know the pain of moving said trailer once it’s off of your vehicle. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dropped a trailer or hurt my back when moving something heavy. It’s always hard to maneuver larger trailers, too. Getting them to turn, go up a hill, or do other maneuvers is never easy.
That’s where the Trailer Valet RVR comes in. This is Trailer Valet’s first self-motorized and remote-controlled unit. The RVR is built to help you move trailers without hurting yourself, or taking forever, either.
All you have to do is set a trailer on the built-in trailer ball of the RVR and away you go. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 30 minutes of runtime depending on the trailer weight and size.
The included remote makes it so you don’t have to lift a finger to move the trailer. With the joysticks, you can be up to 40 feet away and still have absolute control over the movements of the RVR.
One huge benefit to this is being able to walk around the trailer while moving it. Before, when moving a trailer into a tight space or around a corner, you’d need to get someone to help you so they could make sure the area around it is cleaned and clear of obstacles. Now, you can do it yourself since it’s all remote-controlled.
There are three models of the Trailer Valet RVR. The lowest end can support up to 3,500-Lbs, the middle is 5,500-Lbs, and the highest-end is 9,000-lbs. There’s a Trailer Valet RVR for just about any application you can think of.
Regardless of the model you choose, you’ll get the Trailer Valet base and a trailer ball set. This set includes a 2-inch and 2-5/16-inch hitch ball so you can move whatever trailer you need.
The heavy-duty caterpillar-style treads mean that the Trailer Valet RVR can go over just about any type of terrain, from asphalt to gravel, grass, dirt, and more.
The RVR5 and RVR9 models are on sale now, with pre-orders currently being taken for the RVR3. With a starting price of $2,100 for 3,500-Lbs capacity, $3,400 for the 5,500 capacity, and $4,100 to move a behemoth 9,000 trailer. The RVR isn’t the most budget-friendly way to park your boat or camper, but it’s sure to be one of the most fun and easy ways.
