I am considering it. I don't like the way it mounts to the trailer though. Big and clunky. I would make it fit where the tongue wheel is now..............hmmmmm.......

He should have mounting options.

How about a hot blonde who can suck the chrome off a 2" ball?

Thinking about taking the plunge on one of these. I had to move storage places, and now I'm in a 12x25 in between two buildings, and I can back it in fine but getting it out is a totally different matter. I would use this to walk it out of the garage and then turn it 90* so I can hitch it up. Also would be nice to have for when we get our new house to get it into the garage precisely.

Looks like the reviews are generally positive and the negative reviews don't really pertain to me (tandem trailers, people at the height of the weight limit, etc.). They have also changed their design and manufacturing processes to answer some of those early issues. They are down to $300 now, and a Fulton F2 is ~$150, so I figure it has to be worth the extra money in saved frustration

Looks really efficient for what it is, but if you have any distance to cover I would get a power-caster or power-mover. I picked mine up used for less than the valet. Turns my tandem no problem.

Not really any distance at all, simply being able to walk it out of the garage and turn it. Was able to do it with the cheap Overton's trailer dolly but it was way overloaded and not safe. Just purchased, and I plan to do a little video on it for TT.

I agree with Dylan, plus the valet is a LARGE hunk hanging off the side of the trailer. A little too much function over form for my tastes.

Watching that guy bent over while cranking that thing across the road made my back sore just watching. Some way of extending the handle so you can do it standing up would help.

All new cars are going to come with backup cameras in a few years, so its usefulness for hooking up may be limited. But, it would be good for maneuvering around our tight garages.

Yea I have no trouble backing up, it's simply maneuvering it around that looks appealing to me. My current jack is on it's last leg anyways so I'm hoping to kill two birds with one stone here.

I'll be sure to post my review here...will probably be biased since I spent my money on it and will have to validate my purchase...but for $300 to not have to live in fear of getting run over when pulling my boat with a cheap Overton's dolly may be worth it
