  • Largest Available Hitch-Mount Ramped Cargo Carrier for 2-Inch Hitch
  • A good first step in considering your best option in a ramped cargo carrier is a check of your hitch's tongue weight rating, which should be indicated on its safety/warning sticker. This is the maximum weight the hitch can support and the combined weight of the cargo carrier you choose, plus what you load on it, must be within the hitch limit. If your cargo loads will get close to the hitch's limit then a lighter weight aluminum carrier may indeed be a good choice. Here are the key stats...

  • Options for Carrying a 600 lb Scooter Behind an RV
  • Since the trailer hitch on your RV has a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs, it is safe to assume that it has a 500 lb tongue weight. Trailer hitches are almost always designed to have a tongue weight rating that is 10 percent of the towing capacity. I would not recommend carrying your scooter with a hitch mounted carrier on your RV. In fact, most hitch mounted motorcycle/scooter carriers are not recommended for use on motor homes or RVs because the trailer hitch is further away from the...

  • Lock Recommendation for MaxxHaul Platform Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
  • Bike rack manufacturers make their threaded pins unique to the bike racks they manufacture so you would not want to use lock # S64029 with MaxxHaul bike rack # MT70387. To lock the rack to the hitch and/or the bikes as well I recommend a cable lock such as # 8428DPS. This is a 6 foot cable with a 3/8 inch diameter that is cut and rust resistant.

  • How Much Extension is on the MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier # MT70214
  • I was able to get in touch with MaxxTow about spare tire carrier # MT70214. The distance from the plate that attaches to the trailer frame to the plate where the wheel mounts is 6 inches. I included a picture showing the measurement.

  • 2-Inch Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier to Transport Permobil C300 Power Chair That Weighs 350-lbs
  • I contacted Permobil to find out the weight of their C300 power chair and it weighs 350-lbs including the batteries. We do indeed offer several ramped carriers that will have the capacity for this chair and that also will fit a 2-inch hitch. Since I do not know your vehicle or hitch I suggest you first take a look at the vehicle owner's manual for any guidance regarding its tongue weight (TW) capacity. (TW is the downward force on the vehicle frame from whatever is attached to it.) Your...

  • Could a Hitch Cargo Carrier be Used to Transport Propane Tanks
  • Of the solutions we can provide a cargo carrier like the MaxxTow part # MT70107 that you referenced would be an excellent choice. You will need to do some modifications to get the tanks to securely attach to the carrier in an upright position, and that is something I won't be able to tell you exactly how to do. But this carrier has a 500 lb capacity so it would work well assuming you have a hitch on your vehicle that has a tongue weight capacity that is higher than the weight of this carrier...

  • Fit and Compatibility of MaxxTow Carrier with a 2009 Yamaha Zuma 125 with a 2012 Toyota Sienna
  • Great news! The MaxxTow carrier # MT70101 you were looking at will be a good fit for your 2012 Toyota Sienna and Yamaha Zuma 125. I was able to look up your 2009 Yamaha Zuma 125 and found that the overall width was 30.1 inches, assuming this is the handle bar spread, the MaxxTow # MT70101 will give you the clearance necessary to be compatible with your Sienna. What we know about the Curt hitch # C13105 you purchased earlier is that it requires a bumper clearance of 5-1/2 inches for...

  • Inside Dimensions of MaxxTow # MT70260 Hitch Mounted Wheelchair Carrier
  • The inside dimensions of the MaxxTow # MT70260 30 x 50 Wheelchair Carrier are 48 inches long by 28 inches wide by 5 inches deep. You can see this in the photo I've edited for you. These and the other relevant dimensions are also listed on the product description page which I've also linked for you. If your snow blower is just a bit under 28 inches wide, it should just fit. You can see a product demonstration video by clicking the provided link.

  • Looking for Winch to Raise and Lower Purple Martin Bird House
  • What you are needing is a hand winch that will ratchet in both directions like the Fulton # FT11000301. The winch is not compatible with steel cable, but it can be used with 5/16 diameter rope up to 30 feet long. If you would prefer a winch that could be used with cable, I would recommend the Dutton-Lainson # DL15303, which is also a two way ratcheting winch. The spool of the winch can accommodate up to 50 feet of 1/4 inch cable. The MaxxTow # MT70176 will only ratchet in one direction,...

  • Can a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Ball be Mounted on the MaxxTow Trailer Dolly
  • You could put a 2 inch ball on in place of the 1-7/8 inch ball on the MaxxTow dolly # MT70225. However, it is not necessary. For a dolly, you do not have to have the same size ball as what the coupler on the trailer requires. That is why all the dollies that we carry have a 1-7/8 inch ball. It is the smallest size and will fit all couplers that take a 1-7/8 inch or larger ball. I can personally attest to this. Just yesterday I used this exact dolly to move a trailer outside that had...

  • Using MaxxTow Trailer Dolly # MT70225 to Move Pop-Up Camper
  • Moving trailers for short distances is exactly what a trailer dolly like the # MT70225 was designed for. As long as the trailer tongue weight does not exceed 600 lbs, the # MT70225 would be an excellent choice for moving your trailer.

  • Easy Way to Have Different Hitch Ball Sizes with the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount MT70067
  • I have a better solution for you. Instead of getting 3 different ball platforms for the part # MT70067 so that you can have different hitch ball sizes you would want the part # 900B instead to go along with the ball mount. This hitch ball allows you to easily interchange between the 3 different hitch ball sizes. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Dolly Capable of Moving Small 1900 lb Travel Trailer
  • The MaxxTow # MT70225 trailer dolly has a 600 lb capacity. According to MaxxTow, the total weight of the trailer cannot exceed the 600 lb capacity, so your trailer would be too heavy. Rack'em makes a # RA20 dolly that can handle trailers with tongue weights up to 500 lbs. Since yours would be between 200-300 lbs, this particular dolly would work great for you. As you can see by checking out the customer reviews, the Rack'em dolly is highly rated by our customers.

  • Wheel Chock and Lock for a Tandem Axle Travel Trailer
  • Wheel stops such as # UF21-001070 are designed to stop rocking back and forth just like you said. For a wheel chock I would go with # MT70073 but to keep someone from trying to steal the trailer you could use a wheel lock, # WI490 or # RA-25.

  • What is the Hitch Ball Height Above Ground with the MaxxTow Trailer Dolly # MT70225
  • The top of the 1-7/8-inch hitch ball included with the MaxxTow Trailer Dolly, part # MT70225, sits 17-inches above ground level. This dolly can be used to move trailers with any size coupler, even those larger than the included 1-7/8-inch hitch ball size. It offers a substantial 600-lb tongue weight capacity, making it suitable for use with a broad range of trailers.

  • Will MaxxTow Truck Bed Ladder Rack Fit a 2014 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The MaxxTow truck bed ladder rack, # MT70423, will fit your 2014 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 foot bed. I have also included a link to all of the other ladder racks that will fit your truck. Please note that the MaxxTow ladder rack cannot be used with tonneau covers.

  • Ladder Rack Height for MaxxTow and Erickson Ladder Racks for a 2006 GMC Canyon
  • If you check out the picture I attached of the MaxxHaul Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70386 installed you can see that this rack sits very tall on the back of the truck. The overall height is 45 inches. For a lower height ladder rack that is also cost-effective the Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07706 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2006 GMC Canyon with a 5 foot bed and only sits 33-1/2 inches tall.

  • Recommendation for a Removable Wheel Chock
  • The mounting hardware included with the MaxxTow adjustable wheel chock, # MT70075, is designed for a permanent installation. However we do have several wheel chocks that are considered removable because of how they mount. We have TowRax chock # TWSPWM, # TWSPWC, and # TWSPWC3BT. These chocks have a keyhole shape opening where the large end fits around a bolt head. When the bolt is tightened down on the skinny end it cannot be removed. When the hardware is loosened, the chock can be slid...

  • Do Trailer Jacks with Two Wheels Make it Easier to Maneuver a Jack on Concrete
  • Having 2 wheels will provide more surface area/contact with the ground. This could actually make it more difficult to maneuver compared to a single wheel. But two wheels are better than one when not on pavement. A single wheel tends to dig into dirt or gravel easier. A Fulton jack such as # FXPD15L is going to be the better jack compared to the MaxxTow line of jacks. I do recommend going with a Fulton. For a single wheel version use # FXP15L.

  • Is MaxxTow # MT70423 Truck Bed Ladder Rack Easy to Remove
  • The uprights and crossbar portion of the MaxxTow # MT70423 can be removed independently of the brackets that bolt to the top and inside of the bed rail. The uprights are held on by two Allen bolts per upright, for a total of 8. The uprights are a total of 26 inches tall. You could add that amount to the height of your truck bed sides to determine if the rack will clear the ceiling of the garage you mentioned.

  • Will the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70275 Fit on a 2011 Honda Pilot Without Hatch Interference
  • I do not think you will have any interference problems with the rear hatch of your 2011 Honda Pilot and the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier, # MT70275, other than the ramp. We have not had the chance to test this MaxxTow carrier on a Pilot before, but to be sure, we can do some measuring. Starting at the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch, measure rearward 8-1/2 inches. At that distance, the side walls of this carrier will extend upward 7 inches from the top of the trailer hitch...

There are a number of different style options for you to choose from when it comes to a cargo carrier with a ramp.

  • Wheel Chock Recommendation for Harley Davidson Street Glide with 5-1/2 in Wide Tire
  • I have a better solution for you that I can guarantee will work. Check out the MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock # MT70075. This can fit tires up to 5-1/2 inches wide and would work well for you so we would recommend it for you. I attached a picture we got from a customer that shows it being used on a similar Harley as well. Even though it's only 1/2 inch difference I can't recommend the # MT70271.

I attached a review video for this ball mount plus a help article on how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount that will help you determine how much rise exactly you would need.

  • Hand Winch Recommendation to Tilt a Folding Motorcycle Trailer For Storage in the Garage
  • The MaxxTow Positive Lock hand winch that you referenced # MT70176 will work for your application. This winch is rated for up to 1,000 pounds capacity. So it would work for your 230 pound folding motorcycle trailer. Please be aware that this is a one way ratcheting system. You can place the handle in free spool mode to release the strap, but if you would like to use the ratcheting system you will have to turn the handle. For your reference this handle is 9 inches from the attachment...
