Travel Valet XL

I have a circular drive with a tight radius and some hard to navigate entrances. My trailer and truck combined are about 50' of rig to try and get in and out of my drive. I can get it in and around to the side of the house but then it's in the wrong direction and no room to maneuver it out. I had to use my tractor and made some ruts in my yard to get it out and turned around. Trailer is a 265RLSW, 30' and 6,100lbs empty. I've been looking at the Travel Valet XL online and on youtube. Looks like it would work great for what I need. Anyone tried it? Any feedback on it? Not a cheap accessory but if I can't get my trailer in and out of my drive then it's a necessity.

I use one and it works quite well. My TT is only 24' and under 5,000lbs however I do manage to get it up a slight incline. It's slow moving, even with the drill attachment but I guess that's a good thing. It's also compact so it can travel with you. That being said, it won't work on grass or slick/muddy conditions. BTW... the design and construction of the Valet is impressive.

Bit the bullet and purchased one online today. Free shipping and no sales tax helped a bit. I won't have a spotter when I travel and park plus I have to be able to get it in and out of my circular drive and around to the side of the house. Just no room with my truck. If it works like all the youtube videos show then I should be all set.
