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

This item is very solidly built and allows me to connect both a camping trailer and a kayak trailer, with their different-size hitches. 635390

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

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

This hitch is awesome for my 2017 gmc sierra. The 5" drop is perfect for smaller trailers for hauling lawnmowers and four wheelers & can accommodate any of the larger trailers. Also really like the stow position to keep from hitting my shins. And best of all, I'm never without the right size ball! 893543

I have 2 trucks and several trailers. I was sick of constantly swapping out hitches and this one hitch takes care of all my needs. Super easy to use and change around to fit the trailer you are hitching up to. This is my second adjustable hitch but, my first one only has a 2" ball, this is way more useful. 760656

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for Ford F-250 Trucks
    For your standard height trucks and trailers, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10048B will work very well for both of your trucks. 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.

  • 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...

    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...

  • B and W Tow n Stow Ball Mount Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-150
    The B and W Tow N Stow ball mount part # BWTS10048B would be a great option for you. It's adjustable in height, comes with all three popular hitch ball sizes and has a 10k capacity which would be way more than you'd need.

  • How Does B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount with 5" of drop # BWTS10048B Affect Ground Clearance

  • Will Master Lock Hitch Pin Work with B&W Tow & Stow Adjustable Ball Mount
    Because of the large span required to secure the ball mount of the B&W Tow and Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B, the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1480DAT will not work to secure the ball mount to the shank. The span of the # 1480DAT hitch pin lock is not long enough to secure the ball mount to the shank.

  • Distance from Hitch Pin Holes to Mounting Block for the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B

  • B and W Tow N Stow Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2017 GMC Sierra 1500
    That would depend on the height of the trailers you plan to tow, but unless you plan to tow something unusually small and low the 5 inch drop B and W Tow n Stow part # BWTS10048B would be what I think would be the best match for your truck. But if you plan to tow a lower trailer the 7 inch drop part # BWTS10049B would be the better option. I attached a help article on how to pick out the best ball mount for a truck for you to check out as well.

    The 2018 Toyota 4Runner comes with a 2 inch hitch receiver that is commonly referred to as a Class III hitch. There are ball mounts that will allow for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball that will fit your trailer hitch receiver. For the most adjustable option, I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B which will give you the 3 standard hitch ball sizes and give you the ability to adjust vertically for your trailer coupler height to tow level.

  • 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.

  • Adjustable Height Ball Mount Recommendation for 2000 Toyota Sienna for Towing Pop Up
    For a camper that weighs at 1,700 or less for your 2000 Toyota Sienna you wouldn't necessarily need a brake controller as that weight is less than half of the towing capacity for the Curt hitch part # C13511 that you have installed. There's a bit of variance in how tall the coupler will be on the trailer you end up with, but we do have the Tow and Stow # BWTS10048B which I can guarantee as a solution because it has an adjustable height to accomodate for various height trailers and because...

If you were towing with the hitch balls in the lowest position that would reduce ground clearance by another .5". This should then help with your decision.

    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B that you referenced will fit perfectly to the 2 inch hitch you have on your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500. For a hitch lock the part # 63232 is a great option as it also doubles as an anti-rattle device which means there will be less movement. To lock the ball mount platform to the shank you'd then want the part # AM3492. Then for a 7-way to 4-way adapter the part # HM47365 will work really well and is also easy to use.

    The length of the ball mount is not really something that you need to make note of for towing in most cases unless you have a recessed hitch but you will need to note the rise/drop. That said, I can only imagine you may need to tow a different trailer at some point in time so the best option we can offer you is an adjustable ball mount with multiple hitch balls.
