Multiple Stacked Receivers for Easy Adjustment

stacked receivers

This unique mount from Gen-Y Hitch includes a ball mount that can be easily positioned in one of the 6 stacked receivers that sits along the vertical shank of the unit. This dual-ball mount lets you tow a trailer with a 2" ball coupler or a 2-5/16" ball coupler.


With the 6 stacked receivers, not only do you have the ability to adjust the height of the included ball mount, but you also have the ability to add various other hitch-mounted accessories. Insert a bike rack or cargo carrier. Mount a spare tire carrier. Use a tow bar to flat tow your vehicle. Or just add a fun hitch cover. This heavy-duty mount is built with a 2,000-lb tongue weight, so you can even use multiple hitch accessories at the same time, as long as there are no clearance issues. This means that you can use your hitch-mounted bike rack to haul your bikes while also flat towing your vehicle.

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Gen-Y Adjustable Receiver Hitch. This unit has a 16,000 pound gross trailer weight rating, and a 2,000 pound tongue weight capacity. It's designed to slide into your 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. It can be used in either the drop, or rise positions. It provides up to a 12 1/2" rise or drop. You'll notice that we have six adjustable positions, which allows you to tow trailers with different coupler heights.

This helps you ensure that your towing set up is always as level as possible, which is the safest way to tow a trailer.When you're using this slot right here, that's going to be straight out from the receiver tube on your hitch. This one provides a 2 1/2" drop, 5" drop, 7 1/2" drop, 10" drop, and then a 12 1/2" drop. You flip it over to the rise position, and you have those same measurements available with it in the rise position. Now each receiver tube opening measures 2" x 2", and the unit can be used for multiple purposes, which is one of my favorite features about this system. It's great for recreational use, because for example, you can use one of the top positions for a bike rack or cargo carrier, and a lower position for towing a trailer.

It can be used with any standard 2" ball mount, luggage rack, motorcycle carrier, bike rack, cargo rack, and so on.It's fabricated with heavy duty steel, so it's very strong and durable. The mount is heavy-duty, and it's precision milled and driller, for a perfect, and a perfect fit. It's fully corrosion resistance. Is coated with durable powder coat finishing, on the mount itself, and on the Versa-Ball mount. This Versa-Ball mount is included, and it has two hitch balls on it, so you can tow trailers with different coupler sizes.

You can switch between a 2" coupler and a 2 5/16" coupler, very quickly. We have a 2 5/16" ball, 2" ball here. Then we have a center slot, where a 1 7/8" ball can be added if needed. That item is sold separately, and available at etrailer.com.It also has an anti-rattle screw located right here, to reduce rattle and movement from with in the receiver slot. You can actually move this to whatever slot you have your accessory mounted in, and tighten it down, to remove that rattle and play.

Or you can get some other screws as well, but it does come with one. Real quick, I just want to show you, right now I have it pretty loose. As you can see, we have quite a bit of play right here in our mount. All we have to do is take a tool, which I'm just using an adjustable wrench. Place it on there. Start tightening that down, and as I do that, it really takes out that rattle and movement that we had from within that slot. So that's a really nice design of the unit.I'm going to go ahead and loosen it back up, because I do want to show you how easy it is to adjust. When you're ready to switch between the different slots, all you have to do is remove the pin and clip. It does come with two of them. Then you can take this, slide it out. You can put it into any one of the available slots. You could also take it, flip it over, and that's how you switch between the two differently sized hitch balls. Also, you could take this, and install it on the backside here. That way, you can get it out of the way when it's not in use, if you'd rather do that. We'll place it in there, line up the pinholes, and just secure it in place with the pin and clip.This is compatible with Gen-Y Weight Distribution System, part number 325-GH-302. The product is made in the USA, and comes with a lifetime guaranteed warranty. A few measurements I want to go over with you real quick. I took a measurement from the center of the hitch balls, to the center of each pinhole. So you'll notice that it does have two pinholes here on the shank. You can use whatever one works best for your application. From the center of this pinhole, to the center of the hitch ball was 12 1/4". From the center of this pinhole, to the center of the hitch ball was 13 3/4". Overall shank length, 12". The overall length, including out to the edge of the hitch ball assembly, that is 16 1/8". The overall height is 15 5/8". That's going to do it for today's look at the Gen-Y Adjustable Receiver Hitch.

Showed up on time. Needed a heavy duty hitch for my lifted super duty. Used for first time today and worked perfectly. My beaver tail landscape trailer has to towed level or it bottoms out. With this hitch no worries about towing level. Great product! 644832

Until you get your hands on a hitch like this Gen-Y you haven't picked up a receiver. Unless you need it for the weight it's way overkill for a small trailer. I got a 16K for my 13000 lb boat at a great price. 515484

Purchasing experience was outstanding. Order placed on Monday March 26 and received on March 27. Noah was very helpful and great to work with. Shipment came in 2 packages and was complete.

Review from a similar Gen-Y Hitch Stacked Receiver Drop Hitch in Ball Mounts


Haven't used the product but I have no doubt it will do the trick. I'm a over thinking, over prep kinda guy so...if I had any doubts this was the best option, I wouldn't have purchased it. etrailer...so...I'm pretty impressed with your sales/customer support. I received very quick responses to specific "will this work with this thing?" questions....and the answers were on target AND specific. No generalities, no sales pitch BS. If my idea wasn't the best...I got an alternative, along with part numbers, pictures etc. AND...I ordered this on a Thursday afternoon, and got the part delivered the next day. FREE Wasn't next day service...just happened that way. Pretty freakin nice. 640854

We live on an Island in SW Florida where everyone has some sort of Hitch, mostly for Boats. After Lugging this Beauty out to our 34ft Class A Motorhome, we installed our Tow Dolly and Double Bike Rack, and everything came together. The non-rattle screws worked great on the Bike Rack. The 10in Drop leveled the Dolly Tounge just right. We are off to be Full Time RVers, never to worry about Towing again... Thanks.. 637813

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Weight Distribution System Drop Recommendation for Lifted Trucks
  • For your weight distribution shank I recommend the Reese Weight Dist Shank - Drop Only - 11" Long # RP3344. This shank will give you a 7-5/8" drop using a trunnion-bar system or a 8-5/8" drop using a round bar system. If you have a round bar system, you can get a deeper drop of up to 9-1/2 inches with the Curt # C17124. These are the deepest drop shanks we carry based on the bar style of your system. If you need a deeper drop then you will need to use the Gen-Y stackable ball...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 13 Inch Drop on a 2017 Ram
  • If you are measuring from the inside top of the receiver to the bottom of your coupler then you have a 13 inch drop. I've attached an article to help, but have also included a photo for fast reference. That is a significant drop, so you can use one of the following: Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 12-1/2" Drop - 10K # 325-GH-316 Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 12-1/2" Drop - 16K # 325-GH-516 Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch -...

  • Locking Hitch Pin Needed for a Gen-Y Hitch Being Used with a 2017 Toyota Tundra
  • You most likely have a Gen-Y hitch that is compatible with a 2" receiver like part # 325-GH-516. This means that you would need to use the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-096 which is comparable to the locking hitch pin # WS05. If you happen to be using a Gen-Y hitch that fits a 2-1/2" receiver, like part # 325-GH-624, then the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-099 that comes with it is comparable to the locking hitch pin # BD580412.

  • Yes, the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-516 that you referenced will fit and work great with the factory 2 inch receiver on your 2010 Toyota Sequoia. This heavy-duty ball mount features up to a 12-1/2 inch drop or rise and a gross towing weight capacity of 12,000 pounds when used with the 2 inch ball. This capacity increases to 16,000 pounds when using the 2-5/16 inch ball but you will still need to adhere to the limits of your Sequoia if it is lower. The towing capacity of...

  • What Is The Best Drop For Ball Mount To Gain Prop Protector Clearance?
  • If I understand you correctly, it sound like you have a couple of things going. On level ground you want to tow as level as possible, but you don't want to bang up your trailer going in and out of your driveway. I recommend you go with an adjustable ball mount like the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 12-1/2" Drop - 16K # 325-GH-516 or the 15" Drop - 10K # 325-GH-317.

  • High/Low Tow Bar Adapter for 13 inch Height Difference Between Motorhome and Jeep Base Plate
  • The largest rise/drop we offer is the # RM-048-10 from Roadmaster that offers a 10-1/4 inch rise or drop. You want to be within 3 inches plus or minus of level, and this adapter would put you within that range. If you click the provided link, you can see a product description video featuring the adapter. This being said, the Gen-Y adjustable ball mount you have looked at # 325-GH-516 would also work well for you, and would allow you to get a bit closer to level.
