Expert Answers about MaxxTow

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Cargo Carrying Recommendations For 2011 Toyota RAV4
  • Sounds like you have a great trip planned. We have several hitch-mounted carriers to choose from that fit a 2 inch receiver opening. I have attached a link to all of the carriers we offer that you can take a look at. From my research I found that your 2011 Toyota RAV4 has a towing capacity of 1,500 lbs. That means you have a tongue weight capacity of approximately 150 lbs. Tongue weight is the weight of the cargo carrier you place in the hitch added to the weight of any cargo you place...

  • 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.

  • Adapter for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch to Get a 4 Inch Rise
  • The best option for you is going to be Curt multipurpose ball mount # D210. Because it is not technically an adapter it will not reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. The 2 inch receiver part is 3-9/16 inches up from the top of the ball mount shank which is as close to 4 inches as we can get. The receiver portion of this ball mount has a 350 pound capacity. It is only meant for accessories such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. The upper receiver portion cannot be used...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2012 Ford Escape to Use Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • For your 2012 Ford Escape I recommend Curt trailer hitch # 13650. When installed on a 2012 Ford Escape we found that it measured 1 inch from the center of hitch pin hole to the back of the bumper. I have linked a video showing installation and the measurement for you. The MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70260 measures 4-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up. This means that it will clear the rear bumper on your 2012 Ford Escape....

  • Can Upper Yellow Portion of MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock be Removed
  • You are correct, you can remove the top yellow portion of MaxxTow wheel chock # MT70075. But if you do that I also recommend then reinstalling the 4 fasteners back into the black base so you do not use them. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • How to Tow a Motorcycle Trailer and Carry the MaxxTow Carrier part # MT70108
  • I believe I have a solution for you. Check out the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210. This ball mount has a ball platform to let you tow your trailer on bottom and then a hitch opening above it to let you carry an accessory like the MaxxTow Carrier part # MT70108. You will have to look at the front of your motorcycle trailer to determine if it would clear underneath the cargo carrier.

  • 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.

  • Availability of Folding Aluminum Cargo Carrier
  • I do have an aluminum trailer hitch mounted cargo carrier that can fold up. See Curt Cargo Carrier # C18100. Our other aluminum carriers, # MT70275, # MT70100 will not fold, but they do have ramps. The MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 that you reference does not fold. There is no bracket that will allow # MT70108 to fold up. I have included video reviews of all of these cargo carriers for you to check out.

  • Can a Hitch Extender be Used to Lower 2009 Chevy Silverado Tailgate without Hitting Trailer Jack
  • Using an extender such as # MT70024 will reduce the trailer hitch tongue weight capacity by 50 percent so I do not recommend using it. Especially with weight distribution due to the extra stresses involved. You would need to install a 2-1/2 inch hitch, # 41944. Then you could use Titan extension # RP45292 at the 24 inch length with weight distribution. The capacity when used with weight distribution at the 24 inch length is 8,000 pounds. The receiver end of the extender that you would...

  • Distance from 500 Pound Attachment Point to Hydraulic Mount Bracket on MaxxTow Hydraulic Crane
  • I went out to the warehouse and hauled a MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane # MT70238 up to my desk to take the measurement for you. From the center of the bolt at the 500 pound attachment point back to the center of the mount for the hydraulics measures 26-1/2 inches.

  • Middle of the Road Truck Bed Loading Ramps
  • We have a couple loading ramps that are in the middle of the price range. Take a look at the MaxxTow Tri-Fold Loading Ramp, # MT70144, the Highland Ramp Champ, # 11201, and the Highland Straight 3-Piece Hinged Aluminum Ramp, # 1121400. I have attached a few review videos for you to check out. All of these ramps are approved for use on truck beds and trailers.

  • Can I Use a Trailer Dolly to Move a Loaded Trailer
  • The MaxxTow Trailer Dolly, part # MT70225, has a 600 lbs tongue weight capacity, meaning that as long as your trailer's tongue weight is below 600 lbs loaded it will work fine. A typical trailer's tongue weight will be 10-15-percent of its gross weight. As a point of reference I have attached a FAQ article covering how to determine trailer tongue weight.

  • How Many Holes Get Drilled to Install the MaxxTow Adjustable, Self-Locking Wheel Chock # MT70271
  • According to the installation instructions you will use 4 attachment points when installing the MaxxTow Adjustable, Self-Locking Wheel Chock # MT70271 to your trailer. So you will need to drill 4 holes.

  • Options for Transporting a Mobility Scooter with a 2003 Buick Century
  • Your best option would be a small trailer like the Magneta Trailer with Torsion Axle # UWT1HD-AM31985. A Class I hitch would only have about a 200 lb tongue weight capacity. When you use a hitch adapter like the part # MT70355 you cut the capacity of the hitch I half so you definitely wouldn't have the capacity for your setup. I would strongly advise you stop carrying mobility scooter with the adapter you have now as you would be over the capacity and will inevitably cause damage to...

  • Looking For Winch For Jet-Ski Trailer Where Handle Can Be Swapped to Other Side of Winch
  • The lowest capacity hand winch we offer that the handle is easily changeable would be the Dutton-Lainson # DL14527. The folks at Dutton-Lainson have told us that this winch is capable of being modified. The drum, its shaft, the gear shaft and pawl shaft would all need to be removed, and reversed. The gear shaft is held in place by both a nut and an e-clip that would need to be removed. I have labeled these parts in a photo I have edited for you. In other words, some dis-assembly would...

  • Length of Mounting Hardware Supplied With MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock # MT70075
  • The 4 carriage bolts (and related hardware) supplied with the MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock # MT70075 are intended to semi-permanently install this unit on the floor of a trailer. This wheel chock is not intended for routine removal and re-installation although it certainly could be taken off your trailer by removing the mounting hardware. The carriage bolts supplied are 3-inches long overall and include a washer, plastic spacer and nylock hex nut. If your trailer's floor is thicker...

  • Options for Carrying Bikes and Towing a Boat Trailer with a 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • I may have a solution for your situation, but we do not offer a ball mount with an accessory receiver for 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches. These types of ball mounts are only available for 2 inch trailer hitches. Instead, I recommend looking into a roof mount or trunk mount bike rack for your bikes. If you can tell me the year, make and model of your vehicle, I would be happy to make a more specific recommendation for your setup. I have also attached links to our roof mount and trunk...

  • How Does the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 Secure to a Hitch
  • In the review video for the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 that you referenced Matt first uses a pin and clip to install the rack into the hitch, and then engages the anti-rattle device of the carrier by tightening the bolts. Although you don't see him insert the pin and clip I can assure that is what he did and how this product installs. I attached the review video you referenced as well.

  • Anti-Rattle Adapter Recommendation For Curt Hitch When Using Adapter
  • The anti-rattle adapter I recommend is the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge, part # 93347. This will work for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch receivers and is designed to insert into the small gap that may exist on your receiver. You then tighten it up after it has been installed on the hitch pin as the attached photo shows. This should reduce the rattle and movement you have been having.

  • Motor Home Hitch Capacity When Using an Adapter for Tow Dolly and Bike Rack
  • Use of any hitch adapter including the MaxxTow Dual Hitch Extender # MT70070 will have the unavoidable side-effect of reducing your hitch capacity by 50-percent. This means your hitch's towing capacity will be down to 5000-lbs if used with the adapter. Based on your quoted weights (3900-lb car on the 620-lb dolly) you would be at approximately 4500-lbs total weight (before the bike rack and bikes) which is just inside the reduced capacity. However, the issue of clearance is another concern,...

  • Scooter Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 GMC Acadia
  • Any time you use a hitch extender like the part # MT70070 that you referenced you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch in half. While the # MT70070 would be used inverted for you setup, it would seem unlikely that the hitch on your 2013 GMC Acadia would have the capacity to carry the carrier and the scooter with it's capacity cut in half. A better solution would be to upgrade to a scooter carrier like the Oldenkamp Carrier part # RHWC2FL as this carrier can be lowered to allow the...

  • Carrying Bikes and Towing a Kayak Trailer with a 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • Technically you could use the MaxxTow Ball Mount, # MT70066, with a 1-1/4 to 2 inch hitch adapter, but I would not recommend doing this and I would bet that you would not be happy with this setup. There would be a lot of movement with the bike rack and bikes, even with anti-rattle devices and the use of an adapter will decrease the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by half. This means the weight of the bike rack, bikes and trailer will have to be lower than half the tongue weight...

  • Method to Secure 2012 Scion iQ in Toy Hauler Trailer
  • The MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock # MT70075 that you referenced does bolt to the trailer floor with included hardware but this is intended for motorcycles and is not suitable for your Scion. Also, you would need to go through the process of unbolting it each time its used (meaning crawling under the trailer). The same is true for their Self-Locking Wheel Chock # MT70271. If your transport is a one-time or occasional event you might instead consider a pair of basic rubber chocks like...

  • Using a 2-Inch Hitch Bike Carrier on a 1-1/4-Inch Class I Hitch on 2014 Nissan Rogue
  • A light-duty Class I hitch such as the dealer-installed unit on your Rogue has a limitation of 2-bike capacity, regardless of the rack's actual capacity. A hitch adapter like the MaxxTow # MT70032 that you referenced will not allow you to safely use your 2-inch bike rack in your 1-1/4-inch hitch because all adapters like this have the unavoidable side-effect of cutting hitch capacity in HALF. So, your 200-lb-rated Class I hitch would have only a 100-lb tongue weight capacity if used with...
