Expert Answers about MaxxTow

  • Can a Scooter be Ridden Up the Ramp and Onto a Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • You would want to roll the scooter up onto the MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70106. The combined weight of a person and the scooter would be too much weight for the ramp, shank, and hitch receiver to handle (since all of the weight would be pushing down on just one side of the carrier). I would go with the carrier that has the 60 inch long ramp, # MT70260. The longer the ramp is the less severe the angle up to the carrier will be and the easier that will make it to roll the scooter onto...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for 2013 Ford Fusion Energi and Curt Class II Trailer Hitch
  • The Curt trailer hitch for your 2014 Ford Fusion Energi, # C12091, is a Class II hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The MaxxTow cargo carrier is designed to fit 2 inch hitches so it will not work. I recommend Pro Series carrier # 6500. It will fit the hitch and your Fusion. Please note that Curt requires the use of stabilization strap # 18050 when using their hitch with a non-trailer load such as a cargo carrier or bike rack.

  • Clevis Pin Recommendation for the MaxxTow 2-Tang Clevis # MT70034
  • The MaxxTow 2-Tang Clevis # MT70034 that you referenced and the Trailer Hitch Pintle Hook Mount # 63056 are both designed to fit 2 inch hitches, but there really isn't anyway to use them together on the same hitch. For a clevis pin to use with the # MT70034 you would want the # 80411.

  • Availability of Hi-Low Adapter to Lower Receiver Height of Motorhome
  • If you're needing to lower the receiver for a tow bar that you're using to flat tow a vehicle, Roadmaster offers several High-Low Hitch Adapters that would get your towbar within the recommended 3 inches of level. For a 10 inch drop use part # RM-048-10. For an 8 inch drop use # RM-048-8, for a 6 inch drop use # RM-048-6, for a 2 inch drop use # RM-048-4 and for a 2 inch drop use # RM-048-2. These adapters shouldn't be used for towing a trailer. For a bike rack or a cargo carrier, Blue...

  • Does the Ramp of Maxxtow Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106 Remove
  • One of my coworkers bought a Maxxtow Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106 and told me that the ramp on the carrier is not designed to be removed. It does store in an upright position when the cargo is loaded and folds down into the bed of the carrier when no load is present. For more info on it check out the review video I attached.

  • Can MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier w/ 48
  • In order to use the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier w/ 48" Long Ramp, # MT70106, on your 2015 Honda CR-V, it will need to be equipped with a 2" hitch receiver like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 75742. As for sufficient ground clearance, as long as you do not exceed the tongue weight capacity of the CR-V (according to the owner's manual it is 150 lbs) you should not have any difficulty. Please keep in mind that the carrier weighs approximately 87 lbs so that will...

  • Headache Rack For 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Diesel
  • I am unable to tell you much about the other headache rack you asked about but I can give you some information about the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack, part # MT70234 that is designed to fit your 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Diesel.

  • Can Caster Assembly of MaxxTow Swivel Trailer Jack # MT70149 Be Removed
  • I'm assuming that you're wondering if the entire caster assembly of the MaxxTow Swivel Jack, part # MT70149 is removable. The caster assembly isn't removable (so you can install a footplate, for example.) I'd recommend going with the Bulldog # BD151443. The jack doesn't include a foot or caster, but you can add a foot with part # BD018564 or a caster with part # BDCP555. The jack has a 2000 lb capacity, but keep in mind that adding the caster will limit the capacity to 1500 lbs.

  • Recommended Headache Rack For 2013 Ford F-150
  • The MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack, part # MT70234, is designed to be a good fit for your 2013 Ford F-150. This rack will keep things from crashing through the rear window of the cab on your truck and are adjustable from 60-7/8 to 75-1/2 inches. This is a black powder coated 2 inch tubing and has an overall height of 28-1/2 inches.

  • Width of a MaxxHaul Side-Mount Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70233
  • I went and pulled a MaxxHaul Side-Mount Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70233 from our warehouse to measure the adjustable portion of it that will overhang your truck bed and found that when fully extended it will stick out 3 feet, and when fully retracted it will be 20 inches.

  • How to Increase Height of Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier on 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Classic
  • Thank you for providing a photo of your Malibu and power chair carrier. Use of ANY type of trailer hitch adapter/extender, such as the MaxxTow # MT70355 that you referenced, will have an undesirable side-effect: it will reduce your hitch's tongue weight capacity by 50-percent. This is noted on our product page information. It will also introduce additional random motion of whatever is attached to the hitch. Since your combined power chair and carrier weight is 266-lbs, this means...

  • Folding Scooter Carrier Recommendation with Anti-Rattle Device
  • I think you would want a carrier like the Rage Powersports Hitch Cargo Carrier with Ramp # SC500. This carrier can fold when not in use, features an anti-rattle device and does not have any rise to the shank so it would not make the ramp angle even steeper. The only downside is that this carrier is made of steel, not aluminum like what you have so it probably will weigh more. Check out the review video I attached for this product also. The MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70275 does not...

  • Does Maxxtow Cargo Carrier MT70275 fit a 2004 GMC Envoy SLE with Factory Trailer Hitch
  • The Maxxtow Cargo Carrier # MT70275 fits a 2-inch hitch so it will work with your 2004 GMC Envoy SLE with factory Installed 2-inch hitch. To make sure the carrier clears the rear of the vehicle measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of rear bumper. If there is less than 8-1/2 inches the carrier will clear the rear of the vehicle.

  • Can Different Hitch Pins Be Used on MaxxTow # MT70197 Adjustable Ball Mount
  • According to my MaxxTow representative, the hitch pins used to secure the ball mount into the receiver on the vehicle and the ball assembly onto the shank can be replaced with a different 5/8 inch diameter hitch pin. However, the two gold colored zinc plated pins that allow you to adjust the elevation of the ball assembly on the shank should not be replaced with different pins. Doing so would lead to an unknown weight capacity.

  • Folding Cargo Carrier Recommendation that has a 60 inch Ramp
  • While we don't have exactly what you are looking for, the MaxxTow Carrier part # MT70260 would be the closest thing we have that would work. As it is folding and has a 60 inch ramp. However the width of the carrier is only 50 inches and the depth is right at 28 inches. I attached a review video for you to check out for this carrier.

  • Will Rola Cargo Bag # 59102 Fit MaxxTow 17x50 Inch Cargo Carrier
  • First, the Rola cargo bag, # 59102, can be used on MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70107. You would just need to tuck it in or let it overhang some. As long as you secured the bag to the carrier having it overhang would not be a problem. Or for just a little more you could use Stromberg Carlson carrier # CC-100 which is 23 inches by 60 inches. I have included a link to a video review of this carrier for you.

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier with Ramp Fit on a 2005 Ford Taurus
  • The MaxxTow cargo carrier with ramp, # MT70260, requires a trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. All of the trailer hitches for your 2005 Ford Taurus have 1-1/4 inch openings so it will not fit. We have one trailer hitch mounted carrier that has a ramp built into it that will fit a 1-1/4 inch Class II trailer hitch. It is the Oldenkamp scooter/wheelchair carrier, # RHWC1114. The hitch would have to have a 300 pound tongue weight capacity such as # 36313. The carrier weighs...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendations With and Without a Ramp
  • The ramp of the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier part # MT70275 could be removed if you really wanted to. But it wasn't designed for easy removal so it might be more trouble than it's worth. Plus, without the ramp installed the carrier would have an open side without a railing. For a similar carrier without a ramp you would want the part # MT70108 as well.

  • Hitch Pin and Clip Recommendations for the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter
  • Basically you have two options for hitch pin and clips. Either a locking pin and clip or a non-locking pin and clip for both the 1-1/4 inch portion of the MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter # MT70355 and the 2 inch portion. For the 1-1/4 inch pin and clips you would want either the Pin and Clip # PC2 or the locking version part # 7682. For the 2 inch portion you would want either the Pin and Clip part # PC3 or the locking version part # 7683.

  • Will MaxxTow 30x50 Inch Wheelchair Carrier Fit on a Class-A Motorhome
  • Yes, the MaxxTow 30x50 wheelchair carrier # MT70260 will fit a Class-A motorhome with 2-inch receiver. I called MaxxTow to confirm and you will need to ensure your hitch receiver is at the edge of the furthest point at the rear of your motorhome. This carrier weighs about 100 pounds, so keep that in mind when you are loading a wheelchair, lawnmower or other gear to not exceed the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch. As a reminder, it's a good idea to verify the tongue weight...

  • Would the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106 Contact Vehicle When Folded Up
  • That depends on one simple measurement. In order to determine if your vehicle would have enough clearance for the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106 to fold up without contacting your vehicle paint you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your vehicle out to the furthest point on the bumper. If that measurement is less than 4-3/4 inches you wouldn't have anything to worry about. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.

  • Could MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane # MT70238 be Used to Lift Fifth Wheel Hitch into Truck
  • The length of the boom of the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane # MT70238 is 43 inches. It wouldn't be long enough to reach your hitch from the rails, but if you can get the hitch out of the rails and then get it closer to the tailgate you can use this to lift the hitch in and out of the bed of your truck. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Will MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier Fit 2008 Kia Sportage with 2 Inch Trailer Hitch and Wheelchair
  • The first thing to check is the tongue weight capacity of your 2008 Kia Sportage by checking the owners manual in the towing section. The tongue weight capacity of the hitch and vehicle will need to be higher than the combined weight of the carrier, 77 pounds, and the wheel chair, 85 pounds. That is a total of 162 pounds. As long as the capacity of the vehicle is higher than 162 pounds (the hitch is for sure) then MaxxTow carrier # MT70275 will work well for you.
