Expert Answers about MaxxTow

  • Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • We have exactly what you would need. Check out the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier # HR1450-85. This is a platform bike rack that features a cargo carrier behind the bike rack that would work well as long as the distance from the center of the pin hole of your hitch is less than 12 inches. I attached a review video for this product as well. Spare tire bike racks aren't designed for use with a hitch mounted cargo carrier since most likely the bikes...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Inner Dimensions of the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70275 With Ramp in Vertical Position
  • I spoke with my contact at MaxxTow and found that the inner dimensions of the MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier, # MT70275, is 47 inches long by 27-1/2 inches wide with the ramp in the vertical position. I have attached a photo showing these dimensions.

  • Cargo Carrier with Ramp Recommendation for a Transporting a Snowblower
  • For a great cargo carrier with ramp that would work well for you without breaking the bank I would recommend the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106. The internal dimensions of the carrier are 28 inches by 48 inches. So to clear your handles that measure 54 inches long you will need to load the carrier handle first so that they clear the ramp when it's folded up. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. You will want to be sure that the hitch on your 2014 Toyota...

  • 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 Dual Receiver Ball Mount be Used with Weight Distribution and Carry a Bike Rack
  • You would not be able to use a weight distribution system with a dual receiver adapter such as # MT70070. They are not rated for it plus the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. To carry the bike rack and tow the trailer without a reduction in tongue weight capacity for the hitch you can use multipurpose ball mount # D210. This ball mount has a receiver at the top rated for 350 pounds. The tongue weight capacity of the whole ball mount (includes weight...

  • Compatibility of MaxxTow Truck Bed Ladder Rack on 2010 Toyota Tacoma Composite Bed
  • If your 2010 Tacoma is NOT equipped with the factory deck rail system, the MaxxTow Ladder Rack part # MT70423 will fit. The composite bed will not affect the fit. I don't have a .pdf copy of the installation instructions, but you can see how the rack installs by taking a look at the video I've linked for you. If you do have the factory deck rail system, I'd recommend the # TA27000-01-34 Ladder Rack from TracRac. The Ladder Rack includes adapters that allow it to be fitted using the...

  • Short, 2 Inch to 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Adapter Recommendation
  • I have a solution for you, but I do not recommend drilling any additional holes in the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adpater # MT70033. I spoke with my contact at MaxxTow and he strongly discourages any additional holes being made in the adapter. Drilling holes in the adapter will compromise the integrity of the product. The adapter will not be able to hold to determined weight capacity and will not be safe to use if modified. If you need a shorter reducer sleeve, I recommend the Brophy...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Quick Release Motorcycle Wheel Chock Recommendation
  • I have a solution for you, but the Wheel Chock part # MT70271 is designed for permanent install. Instead you might be interested in the # TWSPWC which has slotted install holes so that you can slide the chock backwards and remove it easily when needed. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • No-Drill Truck Bed Ladder Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Chevy Silverado
  • For a similar ladder rack that has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Chevy Silverado that doesn't require drilling to install check out the # 59742. This rack uses clamps to attach the rack to your bed rails. I attached an install video plus installation instructions for you to check out as well.

  • 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.

  • Shank Measurements For MaxxTow Wheelchair Carriers # MT70260, # MT70106
  • For the MaxxTow Wheelchair Carriers # MT70260 and # MT70106, the length of the shank from the center of the pinhole to the closest edge of the carrier when in the folded position is 4-3/4 inches. Just to be sure, I contacted my source at MaxxTow and he confirmed this measurement.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can Adjustable Ball Mounts be Used in the Rise Position
  • Yes, adjustable ball mounts like the MaxxTow part # MT70067 can be used in either the rise or drop position. This ball mount in particular can do up to 8 inches of rise and 10 inches of drop. 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...

  • Fit of MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier # MT70275 on 2008 Mazda CX-9
  • Because a cargo carrier is not a vehicle specific item, we do not have it listed in our fitguide, which will explain why you did not find it when you ran your vehicle. When we installed a hitch on a 2008 CX-9, we found that the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the rear bumper was between 4-3/4 and 5 inches. Since the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier you referenced provides 8-1/2 inches of clearance, it will fit your CX-9 just fine. Although the carrier itself...

  • Side Mounted Ladder Rack Recommendation for Bed of 2006 Nissan Titan
  • The MaxxTow # MT70233 that you referenced is a universal style design that attaches to the inside of a bed rail. If you check out the video link I attached you will see exactly how it installs. According to Maxxtow this will fit your 2006 Nissan Titan if it has the factory track system in the bed.

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Transporting a 30 inch Wide Snowblower
  • You would need something wider, check out the 32x48 Pro Series Steel Solo Cargo Carrier # PS10401-10402. This carrier is slightly wider to fit your 30 inch wide snow blower and has a loading ramp. This carrier has a floor dimension of 31-3/4 inches wide by 47-3/4 inches long which you would want to compare to the dimensions of your snow blower. Check out the review video I attached for this product. The useable dimensions of the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 is only 28...

  • Anti-Rattle Lock Recommendation for a MaxxHaul Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # MT70387
  • The hitch pin of the MaxxHaul Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # MT70387 is threaded so it will work as an anti-rattle device. 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.

  • Can MaxxTow Trailer Dolly # MT70225 Tow a 22 Ft Single Axle Trailer Over Crushed Stone
  • My research shows that a typical single axle trailer that would hold a 22 foot sailboat weighs approximately 750 lbs. The MaxxTow Trailer Dolly # MT70225 would be more than enough to tow this trailer over uneven crushed stone. This dolly has a 600 lb tongue weight capacity meaning that as long as your trailers tongue weight is below 600 lbs it will work fine. Just as a point of reference I have attached a FAQ article covering how to determine trailer tongue weight.
