With the rise of drones and autonomous vehicles, no one wants to be remotely controlling a small land vehicle, well, until now. The folks at Trailer Valet have developed a wicked looking RVR that is powerful enough to pull up to 9,000 pounds of cargo.
This little robot is quite compact for what it is capable of doing, and that’s one of the many reasons why we view it as impressive. You see, folks can attach the robot to a small trailer, truck, or anything with wheels, then use the remote to move the vehicle into the garage or a parking spot.
Trailer Valet says the little RVR moves using a pair of treads, and that it can travel over dirt, grass, paved roads, and even gravel.
“Heavy-duty caterpillar treads allow the RVR to go over different terrains including asphalt, gravel, grass, and dirt. The RVR also comes with 2 or 4 planetary gear motors that can drive both single and dual axle trailers.
“With three models ranging from 3,500 lbs, 5,500 lbs, and up to 9,000 lbs, there’s a RVR for every trailer,” according to Trailer Valet.
Is This Something We Need?
Most folks will have little use for this RVR, but for the ones who do, it’s a good deal. The price starts at $2,100 for the version that can pull 3,500 pounds, while the other model for $3,400 can handle up to 5,500 pounds.
The most impressive model, however, is the one that can haul up to 9,000 pounds, and that one cost a whopping $4,100.
Now, it should be noted that each model has a battery life that’s around 30-minutes, which should be long enough to move something from one area to the next. Not mention, the exterior design is rugged, and gives the impression it could take a serious beating.
After all, these things weigh in at around 100 pounds each, more than what most men are capable of lifting on their own.
- Compact Design: Measuring under 22″x18″x12″, the RVR weighs between 45-77lbs
- Planetary Motors: 2-4 high torque motors to drive both single and dual axle trailers
- Aluminum Body: Allows for a lightweight design and a lifetime of corrosion resistance.
- Heavy Duty Treads: Caterpillar Treads that give you more traction over different surfaces.
- Wirelessly Controlled: Easily and safely operate from any angle with the push of a button.
Overall, the RVR is a sweet little machine that has the potential to work wonders for anyone with a van, a small truck, or one of those trailer houses.
