Nick was very helpful and helped me decide which hitch would work best for me. Hitch arrived on time and was a very heavy hitch that should do anything I need it for.



by:

Got this to carry our electric bikes between the motorhome and tow vehicle. Works great.



by:

Have approached several RV an Tow experts for a solution to a car/motorcycle tow combination for months. Came across Etrailer on the Internet, and “asked their expert” for a suggestion. They suggested a heavy duty dual receiver that was substantial enough to accommodate any tow combination requirements. Their advice was “dead-on” right, and I ordered the parts and they were delivered a few days later.

Their expertise is excellent, as is the ease of doing business with them. I can enthusiastically recommend this organization, and the professionals working with them!



by:

Looks like an extremely well built product. Glad I made the choice I did in buying this ball mount.

  • Can Top Most Receiver Tube in Gen-Y 325-GH-304 Replacement Shank Be Used
    I believe you're wanting to know if all 4 receivers provided by the Gen-Y # 325-GH-304 shank are usable, is that right? All 4 receiver tubes on the # 325-GH-304 shank are indeed usable, including the top most one. You could even use more than one receiver, but you'll need to abide by either the 1500 lb tongue weight capacity of the shank or the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your vehicle, whichever of the two is lower.

  • Can Gen-Y Ball Mount 625-GH-304 Be Used With Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack At The Same Time?
    You sure can! Gen-Y has told us in the past that their shanks like the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 10K # 325-GH-304 you were looking at can be used with multiple accessories at the same time as long as you do not exceed the tongue weight rating of the ball mount or the trailer hitch receiver on your 2018 Infiniti QX60. I included a video of the # 325-GH-304 for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Dual Hitch Receiver for Towing a Trailer and Hauling a Bike Rack
    The best way to tow a trailer and transport a bike rack off of a single 2" receiver is to use the Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount item # 325-GH-304. The Gen-Y has stacked receivers so you can have your bike rack installed in the highest position and then you can attach a ball mount or use the Dual-Ball item # 325-GH-031 for your trailer.

  • Dual Hitch Receiver Recommendation for a Bike Rack and Tow Dolly
    For your application I recommend using the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-304 because it's one of the few options that allow you to use a bike rack and tow dolly (most of them are for a bike rack and flat towing). The Gen-Y has stacked receivers so you can have your bike rack installed in the highest position (with the receivers stacked going up from the shank) and then you can attach a ball mount or use the Dual-Ball # 325-GH-031 for the tow dolly.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for Extra Height on a Front Mounted Hitch
    I have a great solution for your cooler basket fishing rod holder. It is the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount item # 325-GH-503 for 5" of height or item # 325-GH-304 for 7-1/2". These ball mounts attach to any 2" receiver and will give you multiple height adjustment options.

  • Gen Y Replacement Shank on 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Towing Travel Trailer
    The Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-303 is a great option for lowering the ball mount for your 2021 GMC Sierra 1500. This shank is rated for 10,000lbs which is well below the 6,000lbs of your travel trailer. The one thing that I want you to consider is you said you have a 5" Lift. Does that include or exclude any larger tires that may have also been installed. If it doesn't include the tires you might want to consider the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable...

  • Does Gen-Y Have a Weight Distribution Shank Available?
    I have a couple great solutions but placing a weight distribution system in a Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount part # 325-GH-304 is not the way to go. Instead you can in most cases attach your current weight distribution system to one of the following and eliminate the additional connection point and problems that arise from it. The first is a fixed Weight Distribution Shank for Gen-Y Hitch part # 325-GH-0352 the second is one of my favorites the Gen-Y Shock Absorbing...

  • Dimensions of Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount with 4 Stacked Receivers

  • What is the Best Way to Raise Hitch Mounted Bike Rack on SUV for Off-Roading
    The best way to raise your bike carrier on your SUV for off-roading is definitely the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch # 325-GH-304 you were looking at. This is an incredibly sturdy mount and, unlike adapters, it will not reduce the tongue weight of your trailer hitch receiver. This has a 7-1/2" rise and a tongue weight capacity of 1,500 lbs. Since you will be going off road and this adds an additional part into your bike rack connection you may also be interested...

  • How to Carry Rad Fat Tire e-Bike and Standard Bike with Winnebago Micro Minnie
    Since you're unable to use the hitch at the back of your 2018 Winnebago Micro Minnie I recommend checking out the Gen-Y Hitch Replacement Shank # 325-GH-304 along with the Swagman Current Bike Rack # S64678. The Gen-Y has a 7-1/2" rise and then the Current has an additional 8-1/2" of rise so the platform of the rack will sit about 16" above the hitch receiver on your vehicle. Hopefully this gives you enough rise to clear anything on the tongue of your trailer. Attached are some videos...

  • How to Carry Bikes Between Motorhome and Towed Vehicle
    Carrying bikes while using a tow dolly can be a bit tricky since the rear of your towed vehicle will be angled down so instead I recommend using the Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-304 in the rise position and then using the lowest receiver for your tow dolly and the highest receiver for a bike rack like the Thule Range # TH9057 to carry your bikes between the motorhome and tow dolly. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

  • Recommendation for Dual Hitch Bike Rack and Ball Mount Compatible with Heavy Trailer
    We have a solution for you but it isn't a dual receiver but rather a stacked receiver ball mount. This won't be an adapter so won't reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch like the adapter you asked about. It will allow you to use the top receiver for your 4 Bike Thule Apex # TH9025XT as long as your loaded tongue weight is within the parameters of your trailer hitch. You can also use a weight distribution system if desired at the same time. My recommendation for you...

  • Recommended Stacked Receiver To Haul A Bike Rack And Dolly Tow A 2009 Mini Cooper
    To haul your Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # BA22B and your Mini Cooper on tow dolly you can use a Gen-Y stacked receiver like the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 10K # 325-GH-304 or Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 12-1/2" Drop - 10K # 325-GH-316. You'll just want to make sure the stack receiver you purchase has enough of a drop or rise to keep your tow dolly level. To help you with this I've attached...

    To be able to haul your Saris bike rack and your rear cargo carrier at the same time The Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-304 will get the job done. This carrier has a 7-1/2 inch drop and has a tongue weight up to 1,500 pounds. I recommend checking your vehicle's manual to double check the proper tongue weight capacity for your 2011 Toyota 4Runner. Using these shanks will give you about 6 inches of room to stack on the carrier. If you need a bigger drop The Replacement...

  • Can Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter be Used for Towing and a Bike Rack
    You are on the right track of thinking, but the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-8 actually isn't rated for towing a trailer so we need to look at a slightly different with the Gen-Y Hitches. For your application you could probably use part # 325-GH-303 or # 325-GH-304 as these are somewhat similar to the Roadmaster that you were previously looking at and they are definitely rated for towing and utilizing your bike rack. When it comes to the correct height of your ball mount...

  • Ball Mount Needed with Longer Shank for Use with a Ford E-350
    I do have a solution for you but all of our other long shank ball mounts are shorter than the Curt # C45900 that you currently have. You could use a Gen-Y shank like part # 325-GH-303 for a 5" rise/drop or part # 325-GH-304 for a 7-1/2" rise/drop along with the Gen-Y Tri-Ball Mount # 325-GH-034 which comes with 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" hitch balls and has a 12" long shank. Another option is to use a fixed ball mount with a long shank like the Brophy # EA40 with a hitch ball like the 2"...

  • Recommended Adjustable Drop Receiver That Can Be Used With Friction Sway Control
    I have another option for you, but while the Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter # PH54FR would allow you to install your current ball mount with provisions for two friction sway control, it has not be tested for this at this time (1/29/2021) so I would not recommend using it in this manner at this time. For an option that is rated for use with friction sway control, I recommend the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 10K...

  • Can the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack Be Used on a Flat Towed Vehicle or Motorhome?
    Yes, the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack item # HLY64FR is rated to be used behind motorhomes and flat towed vehicles. It has a 80 lbs capacity per bike. I have linked a review video below so you can see all of the functions of the RV Rider bike rack. You will want to use an adjustable ball mount like the Gen-Y item # 325-GH-304. This ball mount fits a 2" receiver and has a 10,000 lbs capacity. It has four stacked 2" receivers which will give you plenty of room for both your bike...

  • How to Carry a Bike Rack and Tow a Trailer At the Back of a Tow Vehicle
    What you're wanting to do can be accomplished, but we'll need to get you some different equipment because you never want to use 2 adapters, and from my experience all of the dual receiver options using the style you're showing in your diagram, similar to the Malone # MPG544, will actually reduce the weight ratings by 50% instead of 25%. (plus each accessory that reduces the weight rating will be reducing the original weight rating of the hitch - not the "new" weight rating achieved by using...

  • Can I Use the Thule Arcos Enclosed Cargo Carrier w/ a Dual Ball Mount?
    Yes, you can if you use something like the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount item # 325-GH-304. This ball mount will not reduce your hitches capacity like adapters do. If you already have one and would like me to verify it will work feel free to email me back with some information about yours.

  • Does the Use of a Dual Hitch Adapter Reduce Tongue Weight Capacity
    You are correct, the use of an adapter typically reduces the tongue weight capacity by 50%, but the amount can vary slightly. Since you are towing a trailer, you do not want to use the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 6" Drop/Rise # RM-077-6 since it is designed for flat towing. As for the other dual hitch adapters available, I checked and they all reduce capacity by 50% so that would leave you overloaded. I do, however, have a solution.

  • Dual Receiver Recommendation for Towing Car and Using Bike Rack Simultaneously
    The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 8" Drop/Rise # RM-077-8 does have the 2 inch receiver like a Class III hitch on both openings but the Roadmaster adapters have a rounded shape to the inside of them to help be a tighter fit on accessories and the shank of your Swagman bike rack, # S64663, is extremely square and won't fit into Roadmaster adapters. Instead you can use the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop/Rise - 10K # 325-GH-303 or 7-1/2" #...

  • Towing Utility Trailer With Bike Rack While Needing More Rise From Ball Mount
    I think we have a solution for you here, but the two parts you mentioned are using an adapter and adapter together. What you can do instead is which is use a Gen-Y ball mount shanks with stacked receivers. This gives you the ability use both a ball mount and bike rack, stacked at different heights so they don't interfere with each other. I'm not sure how much more rise you need, so here are a couple options: - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise: Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-304 - 10"...
