Video Transcript for B and W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the B&W Tow & Stow 3-ball mount for 2 inch hitches, available with a 3 inch drop and a 3-1/2 inch rise, Part Number BWTS10047B, with a 5 inch drop and a 5-1/2 inch rise, Part Number BWTS10048B, with a 7 inch drop and a 7-1/2 inch rise, Part Number BWTS10049B, and finally with a 9 inch drop and a 9-1/2 inch rise, Part Number BWTS10050B. They all feature a 10,000 pound weight rating. The one we're working with today has a 7 inch drop and a 7-1/2 inch rise. The B&W Tow & Stow 3-ball mount allows you to do just that, tow and stow. It features an 1-7/8ths, 2 inch, and 2-5/16ths hitch ball. The 2 inch is rated at 7500 pounds, the 1-7/8ths is rated at 3500 pounds, and the 2-5/16ths is rated at 10,000 pounds. It's easy to select your ball size.

Just remove the pin here, rotate it to your desired ball, and reinsert the pin here. It's adjustable at 1-inch increments, and there's 8 possible adjustments. It features 2 hitch pin holes. You could just whatever works best for your application. From the center of the ball to the center of the first hitch pin hole is 9-1/4 inches. With the same measurement to the second one, we're looking at 10-1/2 inches.

With it in the stow position, it adds a sleek and stylish look to the rear of your vehicle while protecting your receiver from dirt and debris, and it's also going to save your shins. It's made out of a durable steel construction with a black powder coat finish, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. The balls are made with a dual-process chrome plating for excellent rust resistance. The stainless steel pins are going to provide a sturdy connection, and they're also rust resistant. Between the drop and rise position, and with the 3 ball mounts, you'll be able to tow a wide variety of trailers. The B&W ball mounts are made in America, and they feature a limited lifetime warranty. Now it's very easy to install.

You'll need to put it in either the rise or drop position. Then we can line up our pin holes. You also need to provide your own pin and clip. If you don't have one, that's okay. You can pick one up on our website, etrailer.com, Part Number PC3, or if you choose to have a more secure ball mount, B&W makes a hitch pin lock for 2-inch receivers, and that's Part Number BWTS51234. That's going to complete our look at the B&W Tow & Stow 3-ball mount for 2 inch hitches..

WOW - This is a heavy duty piece of equipment. I attached it to my truck and it is easy to pivot to the stored position which will make my shins and pant legs happy. My only negative is the 2" ball I primarily will use is on one end so I will have to rotate it around with each use to allow maximum height when stored. It needs to look like the photo, not with the 2" ball rotated to the top, to store. Not a big deal and I am still happy with the purchase. 575183

Great design. Really glad I can leave it on the truck year round and it looks great with the flat surface when it is reversed and tucked under the truck. The flat surface keeps it safe from people walking behind the truck. Adjustment up and down allows me to use it for my small trailer all the way up to my 29 foot Regulator boat. 442436

The product is great. I use it every week!

this hitch is exactly what I needed. super solid, very well made. already used it to pull my trailer with 2 cords of wood, no problems. and you can fold it (hide it) away when not in use. The thing is solid in construction and well thought out. I was concerned with the adjustment pins and someone steeling the hitch. But the adjustable part is NOT removable without removing the entire hitch so I just bought a Bolt locking hitch pin and now I'm golden! The bonus was ordering from etrailer.com, they always provide quick shipping and great service. 181067

Great hitch should of bought it sooner. Price was great better than any dealer in my area. Ajusting to trailer was easy, helps keep trailer level. Thanks E trailer 250364


Comments

It has been the best investment .I can adjust the hitch depending on the load and the trailer is nice and level and its quick and easy to switch ball size. My friends thought I was crazy for buying it, thats ok when they want to borrow my dump trailer I tell them, they have to bring there own hitch. Ha Ha Thanks again E Trailer

This hitch setup is top notch! Very heavy duty. I went with this setup over cheaper similar options because those other 3 piece options that are similar just seemed clunky and held together by a lot pins with lose tolerances (IE recipe for wiggling and rattling), not to mention multiple stress points. This B&W unit is sleek and solid, no wiggling around, and tucks up out of the way nicely when not in use...which is more handy than you would think! We are using this on a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 Big Horn with factory air suspension. 413904

Still very pleased with all of the products you mentioned and have absolutely no complaints. Thank you

I received this yesterday, so I haven't towed a thing with it yet, but what I can say is this thing screams QUALITY. The fit and finish is fantastic. You can't ask for something to be 'better built' than this, and with three balls and all the height adjustment, no doubt this is the last hitch mount I'll ever need. Hat's off to eTrailer.com, too. The price was right and it shipped fast and free. That's the kind of experience that will make come back! - Chris S. 271295


Comments

Awesome. My initial impressions have proven right. It fits snug, holds tight, and the adjustments have made ut worth the money to me. Different towables have drastically different tongue heights! U-Hauls are super low so you can tow them with a sedan. But boats and travel trailers are higher. And im glad i have the 1-7/8s ball, because i rented a log splitter amd those have the little coupler. I highly recommend this hitch.

I have used this hitch for about a year now. I have an 18' dovetail trailer that i mainly use this hitch for. This trailer has very little clearance at the lower edge of the dovetail. This hitch allows me to adjust this with the many different height adjustments provided by multiple holes. I also really like the way you can store the ball portion away from unknowing chin bones. Only word of caution I have is when you pull the pins to adjust/use the hitch, be ready for the ball portion to drop fast! It has some weight to it and can pinch/smash fingers. Ask me how I know. Overall great hitch. 422811

Super fast shipping. Opened the box and noticed this was a great piece. Very well made. Looks awesome on the truck. Very convenient that it folds under and out if the way. . No shin buster here. Very easy to use. I haven't t towed with it yet. But I'm sure it'll be great. 340359



- BWTS10048B
by:

The B&W hitch seems to be very well built, and pulls like a dream! I also enjoy the convenience of being able to quickly switch ball sizes in order to tow trailers with different size couplers without changing the hitch. 659348

Products is awesome. Only complaint is that the pins can be aggravating even using the white lithium grease. 659319

Actually purchased 2 BW hitches for my trucks. Very easy to adjust various heights in order to pull any trailer level. Also tucks out of the way until you need to tow. Hitch itself helps add protection to the back of your tow vehicle without being a leg breaker when you walk around. Have made other purchases through etrailer and am very happy with customer service and with the products. 646525

Great but....... I purchased this trailer hitch for my new truck and was very pleased with how easy it was on the website and the product its self. Unfortunately while making the purchase I did not realize That it did not come with HITCH PIN AND CLIP I was all excited to see it on my doorstep I go to install with no luck due to a simple cheap pin. I guess it’s my fault but it is a nice looking product and look forward to using it no real complaints PS fitment was perfect on a 2018 Ford F1 50 and the materials used in the product looks strong and durable feels heavy and built well 615038

by:

Great product except for an issue with the stowed position. When stowed the 2 5/16 in ball is at the bottom and can drag on the ground when going through a dip like leaving a parking lot. This causes the large ball to get chewed up. Would be much better if the large ball stowed in the up position. 606258



- BWTS10048B
by:

Really solid hitch. Feel very confident towing a heavy boat. The height adjustment and multiple balls are great features. Stows away nicely. Make sure you have a locking pin of equal towing capacity to attach to your hitch receiver. 596504

I bought this for my husband of Christmas. He loves it!! I put a picture in a box as a gift, because there was many different features and functions that I needed to his input.

This is a great hitch, love the fact you can flip it over and not hit you knees when walking around your truck. This is a perfect addition when not pulling a gooseneck. ETrailer has the best prices around and fast shipping. I will continue to buy from them only. 514637

If you frequently make changes to your trailer hitch to accommodate different trailers this is the best there is. It also rotates and stores out of the way so nothing much sticks out to catch a leg on. 476004



- BWTS10048B
by:

Works as advertised. I tow a lot of boats that have different size hitches and this makes it a snap to flip sizes as needed and then flip out of the way to save the shins. 461825



- BWTS10048B
by:

Have had this for a year now and really like it. I have a horse trailer, a hay trailer, and sometimes pull for other people so the ability to change ball sizes quickly is really helpful. After a year of heavy use it looks new, still rotates freely, and just looks right and solid. Not cheap but I'd buy it again. 461744


Comments

Not precisely sure what I can add to whats already been said about this hitch. One year later and I still love it. Come back from hauling hay, pull one pin, spin to hook up to my horse trailer. Cant imagine theres a better one out there. Now I need a gooseneck hitch and I guarantee you it will be a B&W.

I love this ball mount, got 3 trailers 3 different size couplers. no need to switch just rotate it around and go. i have also been rear-ended twice since getting this hitch and thanks to its heavy duty construction, no damage to my truck, but screwed up a couple of bumpers though. i would most definitely buy this again. there is also a double one too if you dont need 3. 453168

  • Locking Pins for a B&W Tow & Stow
  • The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B does not come with a keyed locking pin to secure the shank to the receiver. For that I recommend the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Trailer Hitches # 1480DAT. If you want a locking pin for the ball mount, you would need the longer of the two pins that comes with the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # AM3492. I have added links to video reviews of each product for you.

  • Best B&W Tow & Stow for a 2018 Ford F-350
  • In order to find out how much of a drop you need to look for in a ball mount, you will need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside edge on your trailer hitch and then from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler on your trailer while level. If you subtract the trailer height measurement from the hitch that will give you the amount of drop you need to look for in a ball mount. I recommend doing this for both trailers. Please note that the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount...

This will not only work well with all 5 of your trailers but will also give you great ground clearance. If you had a lift on your truck, then I'd recommend the 7 inch drop # BWTS10049B, but it won't be needed on a non-lifted truck and will give you less ground clearance.

  • Locking Hitch Pins Needed for a B&W Tow & Stow
  • The Rapid Hitch Trailer Locking Hitch Pins come in 2 sets.

The longer pins have a 5/8" diameter and the shorter pin has a 3/4" diameter. The longer pins work great for a B&W Tow & Stow like part # BWTS10048B.

  • The etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches # 989900 would be a great option if you only have a couple trailers, but could be an issue with multiples and in some cases will involve tools.

This will give you both a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch diameter hitch ball and the adjustment for switching hitch ball size and height takes only seconds with no tools required. I've attached an article on ball mount height to assist....

  • How to Choose the Correct Hitch Ball Size
  • A 2" hitch ball like part # A-90 is pretty standard but you really need to know what size hitch ball your coupler is compatible with. It should be stamped on the trailer coupler itself. If you already have a ball mount then you need to make sure that the shank of your hitch ball is compatible with that as well. The # A-90 has a shank with a 1-1/4" diameter and is 2-5/8" long. For people who will be towing different sized trailers it is a lot easier to have multiple hitch ball options....

  • Choosing the Correct B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount for 2015 GMC 2500HD with 20 Inch Rims
  • For safe and comfortable towing, a trailer should always be as level as possible. In order to determine which B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount will work best on your 2015 GMC 2500HD with 20 inch rims, you will need to measure your hitch height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening as well as the coupler height of the trailer that you intend to tow. The difference between the measurements will determine the rise or drop that is needed for your setup. I have attached an article which...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Reciver for 2016 Ford F-150
  • I suggest using the Curt # C13118 for a trailer hitch receiver on your 2016 Ford F-150. This is a 2 inch, Class III hitch with a gross towing weight of 6,000 pounds and maximum tongue weight of 600 pounds. It includes all the necessary hardware to bolt it to your truck. I've linked an installation video for you. If you prefer a hitch that has a higher weight rating, the Curt # C14016 is a Class IV, 2 inch hitch rated at 10,000 towing and 1,000 pounds tongue weight. This hitch is...

  • How Much Ground Clearance Do You Lose With the B&W Tow & Stow BWTS10048B
  • The distance from the top of the shank to the bottom of the platform on the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10048B while in the stowed position is 8-1/2". I am not sure where you were measuring from but if you measure from the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground and then subtract 8-1/2" that will then give you your ground clearance measurement. Unfortunately, there are too many variables at play to give you a definite answer as to whether or not it will scrape but...

  • Can Locking Pins Be Used With B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount
  • I spoke with my contact at B&W about locking pins for the Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B. He confirmed that pins can be used in the ball mount, but they need to be able to span the hitch, have a diameter of 5/8 inches, and be rated for 10,000 pounds. I found the longer of the 2 pins in the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # AM3492 to span the width of the Tow & Stow # BWTS10048B. I have attached some photos I took showing the adjustment pin lock in the...

  • Would B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount Be Good Choice for 2016 GMC Canyon
  • For the price it's pretty hard to beat the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B. It has all of the ball sizes you are going to ever need and it has height flexibility which means that you can basically tow most trailers level. 5 inches of drop would cover most trailer so this would be a great option. Smaller trailers like waverunner trailers will still have the 1-7/8 inch ball on occasion so it's not a waste by any means.
