  • Is the 2,500 Pound Capacity MaxxTow Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack Enough for 690 lbs Tongue Weight
  • The 2,500 pound capacity of the MaxxTow jack # MT70146 will be more than enough for your 2007 Coachmen trailer with its 690 pounds of tongue weight. I have included a link to a video review of this jack for you.

  • Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier for Toyota Tundra for Use Transporting 150-lb Outboard Motor
  • Since I do not know what class of hitch you have on your Tundra I suggest you start by checking its safety sticker to confirm its tongue weight rating, which is the downward force applied to the hitch. As an example, a 2013 Toyota Tundra can be equipped with any of three classes of 2-inch trailer hitch: Class III, Class IV and Class V. Please see the link provided. The good news is that any of these should have enough capacity for the weight of your 150-lb motor and stand plus the weight...

  • 1-1/4-Inch to 2-Inch Hitch Adapter for Use on Subaru Forester
  • There are several different classes of 1-1/4-inch hitches offered for the Subaru Forester. Without knowing the vehicle's model year I cannot be absolutely sure if the hitch on the vehicle is a light-duty Class I type or a higher capacity Class II. Please note that 1-1/2-inches is not a standard size for a receiver opening; they are typically 1-1/4-inch, 2-inch or 2-1/2-inch on heavy duty trucks. We do offer hitch adapters and extenders that will allow 2-inch hitch accessories to be used...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for HP Velo Scorpion FS 20 Recumbent Trike
  • To transport your HP Velo Scorpion, I'd recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider, part # HR1000R-TRKADP. This rack is specifically designed to carry a recumbent trike like yours. It handles a maximum track width of 36 inches, a maximum wheelbase of 74 inches, can handle tires up to 3 inches wide and has a 100 lb capacity. I'm sorry to say that we do not offer a cargo carrier that has the dimensions you mentioned. To protect the investment you have in your trike, I'd recommend using...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mount Bike Rack With Cargo Carrier
  • The carriers we offer are all designed to carry cargo and do not have a receiver opening that can handle a bike carrier like you described, but we do have an option that may work for you. We do offer a combination bike carrier / cargo carrier from Hollywood Racks. This system gives you the flexibility to carry 2 bikes, 2 bikes and a cargo carrier, a cargo carrier alone, or 4 bikes. This is designed to be used in 2 inch hitches. To order this system you will need part # HR1400-85. I have...

  • Will MaxxTow Ladder Rack Fit a 2006 Dodge Dakota Extended Cab
  • The MaxxTow ladder rack # MT70386 is a universal fit type of item. It is width adjustable for 52 inches to 71 inches so that should not be a problem for the bed width on your 2006 Dodge Dakota. The overall height is 45 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...

  • Would the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 be Compatible with Toolbox
  • If it is a chest style tool box you definitely could reinstall it after you install the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234. If it is a crossover design where a portion of the box goes over the bed rails of the truck then the install brackets of the rack would most likely interfere.

  • Is a Hitch Extender Recommended for Bike Carrier to Clear Spare Tire on a Travel Trailer
  • Using a hitch extender such as # MT70024 will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. It will all add additional stress to the hitch and to where it is mounted on your travel trailer. I do not recommend using an extender. Since you already have a bike rack that is compatible with the travel trailer the best solution would be to stow the spare tire in an alternate location. The benefit is that it won't cost you any money to do so and you will not have to...

  • Headache Rack for a 1995 GMC 2500 Pickup Truck and 1998 Chevy 2500 Pickup Truck
  • The MaxxTow headache rack # MT70234 is adjustable. The center to center distance between the mounting holes is 60-7/8 inches to 75-1/2 inches. As long as the 1995 GMC 2500 and 1998 Chevy 2500 bed sides are within that range on center (from one to the other) then this headache rack will fit.

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for Use with the Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter # RM-048-10
  • I have a solution for you that will get you within 1 inch of the extension you need, but the # MT70024 would not be the correct extension to use. Instead you would want the Roadmaster Trailer Hitch Extension # RM-071 to go with the Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter # RM-048-10.

  • Will the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 fit a 1998 Chevy 2500 Truck
  • Most likely the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 that you referenced would fit your 1998 Chevy 2500 since this rack is very adjustable and can fit a wide variety of truck bed widths. The reason it is not confirmed to fit your truck though is because fit information for this rack doesn't go back to 1998. If the width of your truck bed is between 64 and 74 inches this rack will fit your truck. I also attached a link to the right that has all of the racks we offer confirmed...

  • Carrying a Power Chair on a 1999 Honda Civic
  • The trailer hitches available for your 1999 Honda Civic are all Class I hitches rated for 200 pounds tongue weight. The combined weight of the chair and the carrier you would use would likely exceed this capacity. That is also assuming the vehicle itself is rated as high as the hitch. It is likely less though which makes it even more difficult. But I have a solution that could work for you. You can install a trailer hitch, # 60834 for a coupe or sedan Civic or # 60935 for a hatchback...

  • Recommended Heat Treated Zinc Coated Trailer Hitch Pin to Secure a Trailer
  • Thanks for your previous purchases from etrailer.com! The Redline hitch pin # 12H will fit your measurements. I pulled the part from our warehouse and measured it for you. The measurements are 3-5/8 inches from the collar base to the center of the hitch pin hole. Or 3-1/2 inches from the collar base to the top of the hitch pin hole. See picture to the right. I contacted our representative at Redline and it's zinc coated and made of steel (not forged). I pulled the MaxxTow hitch pin...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a Hummer H2 and a 300 lb Bike
  • The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole of the Rage PowerSport Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # AMC400 that you referenced to the center of the track where a motorcycle would sit is 18 inches. That's more clearance than most hitch mounted accessories have. You will need to measure from the center of your hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on your spare tire to see if that's enough clearance or if you would need an extender. If you do need additional clearance and would...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender to Gain 12 Inches Clearance Between Tow Vehicle and Trailer
  • I'm a bit confused by your question, I guess I don't quite understand why you'd need to use an adapter to tow a trailer. If you need the 11 or 12 inches of extra clearance, use the MaxxTow # MT70024 hitch extender. It would install into your 2 inch receiver, and you'd install your 2 inch ball mount in the other end. This set up CAN be used to tow a trailer, but because you're extending the length between the load and the receiver on the vehicle, the tongue weight capacity of your hitch...

  • Can the MaxxTow Adjustable Motorcycle Wheel Chock Hold a Honda Goldwing
  • The MaxxTow adjustable wheel chock # MT70075 does not have a weight capacity or a bike size limit. It is dependent on how it is mounted. For example if secured to a metal or solid wood floor using the proper fasteners for that material then it could handle a Honda Goldwing, no problem. With that said the chock will accept tires that are up to 5-1/2 inches wide so nothing larger than that would fit. I do recommend additional supports such as tie downs # EM05729. You would not want...

  • Where to Measure on Trailer and Hitch to Pick Out Correct Rise/Drop Ball Mount
  • I am glad the MaxxTow Ball Mount # MT70067 will fit work for both of your trailering setups! This is a unique ball mount in that it offers a great deal of flexibility. The only concern I have is that you are measuring on your vehicle in the wrong place to determine what rise/drop you need. The only reason this matters is that all of the ball mounts have their rise/drop listed measured from the top of the hitch opening and not the bottom where you measured yours. I'd hate for you to end...

  • Hitch Availability for a 1964 Chevy Impala
  • I wish we carried a custom fit hitch that is confirmed to fit your 1964 Chevy Impala, but none of our hitch manufacturers carry anything for you vehicle. Your best option would be to find a qualified fabricator in your area and have one fabricated. For a scooter carrier you could use the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Steel or Aluminum Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Transporting an Aluminum Cargo Carrier
  • Since you are planning on transporting a snow blower you would definitely want the aluminum carrier part # MT70100 over the steel one part # MT70106. The reason I say this is that if you are transporting a snow blower there is going to be salt on the roads. Salt has little to no effect on aluminum but will cause steel to corrode quickly. Check out the review video I attached for the # MT70100.

  • Vehicle Fits for MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234
  • The MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 fits a broad range of trucks thanks to its adjustable base which offers 10-inches of adjustment, from 64-inches wide to 74-inches wide. The main purpose of this rack is to protect the cab from shifting cargo in the bed. This headache rack will fit your 2002 Ford F-250 but not your 2002 Chevrolet S10 or 2001 Dodge Ram 2500. The list of trucks it will fit is shown on the product page. I have included at right links to our pages for accessories...

  • Trailer Hitch Adapter with Rise and 2 Inch Receiver for a 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • There is something similar to MaxxTow adapter # MT70070 that fits 1-1/4 inch hitches instead of 2 inch hitches. Take as look at the Brophy adapter, # HT5R. It fits a 1-1/4 inch Class I or II hitch and has a rise with a 2 inch receiver on the top. An adapter that features 2 receivers though is not available for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. Please note the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. It will also put more stress on the hitch and vehicle.

  • Height Setting Recommendation for the MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock part # MT70075
  • Most likely the lowest setting would be your best choice for the MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock part # MT70075. That's where I would start and then if it doesn't seem like the wheel is held tight enough I would go up to the middle setting.

  • Will MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier Work On 2010 Ford F-150 Supercrew Lariat
  • The MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier, part # MT70106, would be a good option to carry behind your 2010 Ford F-150 Supercrew. If you need cargo straps to secure the grill or mower when hauling them, I recommend the CargoBuckle Mini G3 Retractable Ratchet Straps w S-Hooks, part # IMF103745-86. These straps measure 1 inch by 6 ft long and have a safe working load limit of 466 lbs. they feature a ratcheting mechanism that makes it easy to tighten and maintain tension on the straps.

  • Motorcycle Lift Recommendation for Loading a 1996 Harley Softtail in a 2010 GMC Sierra Short Bed
  • The MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane # MT70238 that you referenced would have the capacity to lift your 750 lb Harley Soft Tail into the bed of your 2010 GMC Sierra short bed, but it wouldn't be an ideal solution as it wouldn't swing far enough into your truck bed. Although much more expensive, a better solution would be the Blue Ox OverBilt SportLoader Motorcycle Lift # SC3001. This product was specifically designed to do exactly what you are trying to do in a short bed truck.

  • Availability of Cargo Carrier to Carry an Adult Trike and a Standard Bicycle
  • We don't carry any hitch cargo carriers that are that large, the MaxxTow # MT70106 is as close as we have, at 30 by 50, but I believe a bike rack would be more like what you're looking for. We offer the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2, part # HR1450R-TRKADP2 that can carry one trike and a regular two wheeled bike. The rack can accommodate two bikes weighing up to a combined 100 lbs. The trike can't be more than 36 inches wide at most and the wheelbase of either bike can't be more than...
