Truly the last mount I’ll ever need. It fits perfect on my 2021 Sierra AT4 and even works with the multipro tailgate, which was an important fact for me in selecting a mount. etrailer is the best and from my personal experience ordering from them, they typically deliver FASTER than they estimate and provide excellent and friendly customer service every step of the way. This purchase was no exception.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great price and fast shipping. However the hitch is very loose in the receiver. I’ve never had a hitch wobble like this one does. I guess I’ll have to order something to correct that.


Comments
It sounds like your ball mount might be a bit too small. If you measure the inside to inside of the hitch receiver, we can confirm the exact size you need. We do have part # BLU79XR, that would fit a 2.5 inch hitch, but I would like to double check and make sure that this ball mount will actually fit your application.

I have a 2.5 receiver on my 2015 F350 Super Duty. I do have the 2.5 to 2 adaptor to accept the 2 hitch, but I suspect the adaptor only amplifies the sloppy fit. I tried my old BW hitch with has a shorter and its just as loose, but I never noticed it as much because the is much shorter.

I have noticed in your picture that you actually have the 3 inch OEM hitch with the adapter sleeves that are provided when purchasing larger trucks. We do have some safe application options for you. We have a 3 inch ball mount with a 7 inch and 7.5 inch rise, part # BWTS30040B

. This will prevent you from needing to use adapter sleeves at all. We also offer a hitch receiver immobilizer for 3 inch hitches, part # BLU85QR

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


New buy but they seem to be well built. I like that the lock screws into the pin as opposed to the assembly that latches on (I’ve seen video where those can be forced off).


Comments
Highly recommended. I bought locking pins so that i can keep it mounted 247. Would buy this product again. Very sturdy, well worth it.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Sent the wrong hitch in a box that was obviously opened previously. I paid for newz NOT an open box. Hitch is filthy, and is for a 3" receiver, NOT a 2 1/2". Will have to cancel my trip this weekend as a result. Thanks for nothing.


Comments
Thanks for reaching out. I have sent your information along to our customer service team.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


After doing some research and trying to figure out what style and brand of ball mount to get…..I settled on this B&W product. Its nice to have the ability to adjust your ball mount for different trailers just in case you need to. Being a machinist, I found that this was very well made……no burrs anywhere, clean welds, very nice powder coat finish and packed in heavy duty cardboard to prevent hopefully no issues with shipping.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Awesome product & service. We have B & W adjustable hitches installed on all of our trucks. As we tow various trailers with various trucks these hitches are the ticket, best ever made & excellent quality.
Awesome job on etrailers service, wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you

You guys are awesome, informed me on every step of the process from receiving the order to delivery. This hitch works great with the ford Tremor.

Perfect drop for my lifted truck, feels solid. Documentation indicates use only B&W pins but I purchased locking pins. Hope they are within specs.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Our GOTO hitch for all our high profile trucks. We have several different B&W hitches.
Purchased this hitch 15-20 years ago... NEVER disappointed, never a failure. Bequeathed this older hitch (she didn't want a new one?) to my oldest daughter, she had always wanted this one for her truck. She said IT had been "TOW" tested to the extremes.
A NEW Ford F250 required a new hitch. THIS B&W is the one we use for our 7K GTW (Gross Trailer Weight), bumper-pull travel trailer. It has a 10k working limit, but a safety factor is built into this hitch. We have used this hitch with a 12k GTW (Gross Tongue Weight) on the farm, for a short tow (less than 10 miles) on many occasions, but it's NOT recommended!!!
One must be aware, when in the drop position the hitch can drag (again, NOT recommended!) on a low departing rise, but it can handle it (depending on your receiver). I have (slowly) backed into rocks that jarred the truck to a stop, but no issues with this B&W.
I normally rate my product reviews with 4 Stars to leave room for improvement. This B&W hitch gets 5 STARS!
Purchase ANY B&W hitch and you will NEVER Regret you did.


Comments
Nothing I can add to a one year review. The original comment leaves nothing out. Like others have said, a hitch lock is a necessary insurance investment!

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Item was described very well. Shipping was fast as well. The ease of changing the ball for the application i need, and stowing away when not needed make this hitch the only one I'll ever own.


Comments
Its working fantastically. So easy to have a one size fits all hitch. I do keep it lubricated just a bit on the pins. But thats because I keep it on the truck year round.

Excellent quality. A great idea with the adjustability .Tucks under the bumper and it can be left on. Much better than having 2 or 3 different hitches

Really well made. All parts are machined. The fit and finish is very nice. It easily transforms from the usable position to a tucked away position. It's more than what I though I purchased

Great quality hitch for my new 2022 2500HD LTZ. Quick and efficient shipping. Looks great on my truck. Works very good for all my trailers.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


B&W hitches are great hitches. I ordered a new one that will pull 14k. My original was 10k. Very important to keep the pins lubed, otherwise they will freeze into place.


Comments
Great product. Works well as long as you lubricate the pins

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Absolutely wonderful! Super heavy duty! I haul around my heavy duty dump trailer with 15-20k pounds in it and this hitch can withstand anything. I have it turned upward instead of downward to lift up the trailer a little higher to help with sag on my truck from the weight. I also love the ability to stow it however I never use that feature cause I’m always towing.



by:

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Excellent hitch , easy to switch to different size balls , simple to stow , 2022 super duty tremor sits 2 inches higher than regular f250 , so went with 9inch drop , perfect hitch for the tremor

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I have a 2017 F350 4X4 with factory 20 inch wheels and no lift. I used several videos to help determine the amount of drop that I needed. I went with this hitch. It was delivered quickly. The box was a little "ratty" looking, but the hitch was not damaged. I installed the hitch easily and to my surprise there was less play than I had expected. I had to use the lowest drop setting to get the tongue of my trailers level.
Their description advises that you have a minimum of 11 inches from the bottom of the hitch to the ground/road. This hitch is "comes in" at just 11 inches of clearance. The stow & go feature also worked well. It is a little aggravating only because the hitch is heavy, which is a good thing. I made a short pull (unloaded) and there was minimal noise in the receiver. That can be eliminated with various solutions. The trailer pulled very well with no issues. So far I am pleased with my purchase. e-trailer also had the lowest price, as I was given a 5% discount...Thanks for that. I looked at numerous places/sites.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


First and foremost etrailer is awesome. Secondly they should pay me for the information and pictures I'm going to include. The B&W hitch # TS10065BMP (BW29FR) works with the Multi Pro tailgate on the GMC and Chevy 1500 pickups. I was ready to return it after talking to Bailey because it didn't do what I wanted. I like to have my hitch in tow position to ward off all of the idiots that want to rear end you. This wards off the majority with a little intimidation. The hitch needs to be pushed over the receiver into the recess to work! Then in the lowest position rotate the balls and nirvana! See Photos! Balls out!!

    For a solid adjustable ball mount with the least amount of play I definitely recommend the Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for MultiPro - 2" Hitch - 4-1/2" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise - 10K # BW49FR.
