Here are a few pictures. Sorry they are shaky phone pics.
For the spacers I used some steal I had on hand and was at first just test fitting and seeing how it works so I didn't paint them. I got busy and forgot to go back and take it all apart and paint them so they are rusting. I will add that to my to do list.

This is undoubtedly a stupid question, but: is this thing motorized? Because I don't see any way that I could manhandle my 22'.

Nope. Two speed hand crank. And it's only able to handle a 500 pound load. My 22 is heavier on the tongue than that. Sigh. I thought it was a cheaper solution than a power dolly.

If it is being towed in a fairly flat and good traction area I wouldn't worry about the 500lb limit. You could always try to swap the tires/inner tubes for solid ones.

I just ordered a trailer valet for my 2013 16' Sport and would love to see the photos of the mounting modifications. They are not showing up for some reason -- none of the photos from Poseidon or tjwoods1.Possible to send via private message, or re-post?

thank you! Caroline

For some reason I can't get forum photos to show up on my iPad. They do, however, show up when I use my computer. Are you trying to view them on a mobile device?

Trailer Valet XL

So, after much online shopping and comparing I spent the $580 on the XL. Here's why- Own a Sport 22FB that I'd like to spin around in my driveway so it can be displayed for sale. Have a 27FB Pendleton arriving soon and needed the heavier load rating. So far I've only attached it to the hitch and moved it a few feet using a DeWalt 20V drill. It works great so far... I'll post some photos when I get the Sport back from the shop and have it attached.

Have you tried this with your Pendleton? Picking mine up in a week or so and may need something like this to make a right turn to the driveway.

The original link for this item on Amazon indicates it is not available and they do not know when it will be re-stocked.

I like my Trailer Valet XL. You do have to be careful and be sure it is tightened down and check it every once in a while as it does have a tendency to loosen itself if you turn it too quickly. Go slow and be patient and the unit works fine. It is rated for 500 pounds tongue weight.

I saw an ad for the XL and I would love to upgrade mine. With all the equipment we have on the nose of our little 16 it would be great to get away from the bracket. If anyone here wants to buy a gently used trailer valet "classic" drop me a PM.
