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

Hi there heavy hollers. Today we're gonna be taking a look at B&W's Tow & Stow 3-Ball receiver hitch. This ball mount comes with three different sized balls, and it's designed to fit in 2.5 inch hitches. We can see here in the end, we've got our two inch ball here, currently in the rise, 'cause our boat trailer here uses a two inch hitch, but we've also got a 1 7/8, and a 2 5/16 available. Another thing that's nice about this ball mount, is that it is adjustable. We've got seven inches of drop in its current position.

And if we we're to take it out and flip it over to where this portion was going upward, that would be the rise position, And we'd get about 7.5 inches in the rise position. We've got plenty of adjustment holes here, and each hole, the distance between those, is gonna give us about 1 3/8 of an inch of adjustment. When you're ready to adjust the height, it's pretty easy. We simply pull out the clips that hold our pins in place. And since this is a B&W, you'll appreciate how easy the pins just slide in and out.

The machining on these is just fantastic. So you can see here, also that, when we go to adjust it, that this is completely secured to our drop here. So, nobody can come along and grab our pins, and walk away with our ball. It's gonna stay secure on here. So, we can go ahead and slide it up to the position and that's gonna work best for us.

So, it's looks like, we're gonna be at about this position here. So, we'll just slide our pins back through, line up our holes, and then resecure the pins. So, now that we know the right height, we are gonna select the ball size that's appropriate for our setup. To do that, you'll wanna pull the pin for the ball, and you can see here that it now rotates. So, you can choose the most appropriate one for your trailer, whatever size your coupler is.

The smallest one on here is the 1 7/8. With this one, we're gonna have a maximum of a 3,500 pound towing capacity. The two inch is gonna give us a maximum of 7,500 pounds, and with our 2 5/16, we're gonna have a 14,500 pounds of towing capacity available to us. Regardless of which position you're using, this ball mount does have a 1,450 pound towing weight rating on it as well. And, that should be more than enough for anything you're gonna be hooking up to this thing. One of the things I'll point out, is that we've got two holes here for securing our ball. If you're gonna use the two, or the 2 5/16, you'll use the rear most hole to secure it in that position. If you're gonna use it in the 1 7/8, or in the storage position, you would use the forward most hole. So we're gonna set ours to the two inch, because that's what our trailer is here, and then resecure that pin. And having three different ball sizes, is going to maximize the versatility of what your truck can bring with you. Two inch balls are great for a lot of your boat trailers, and maybe your smaller car haulers. A lot of those have two inch hitches on them, so we've got a two inch available. We can bring all these things along with us. Your larger bumper pull campers and enclosed trailers, often have 2 5/16 inch balls, which we've got that available, again, with that 14,500 pound capacity, which should be more than enough than any of these campers have. Oftentimes these things usually top out about 10,000 pounds. So, you usually have plenty of leeway with that 2 5/16 ball. And, maybe it won't come up as often, but you've got a 1 7/8 inch ball in there as well. So, if you're doing a little bit of work around the house, you've got a small utility trailer that you'd like to hook up to just get some work done, you can do that. Or, maybe you've got a jet ski trailer or a kayak trailer. Something like that often has a 1 7/8 inch ball, 'cause it doesn't really have a lot of weight capacity to it. We're now over here, on our big enclosed camper. This is gonna show it off the best, as it's the biggest weight we've got here. It's a 2 5/16 ball. So, we've gone ahead and backed up. We did hook up our electrical so we can operate the jack, and we're just lowering our trailer onto it now. Once you've got it loaded on there, it's not uncommon for you to have to pull forward a little bit in order to get it latched. And, then you wanna finish hooking up the rest of your components, which includes your safety chains. Make sure you cross those to create a cradle underneath. So, in the event of a catastrophic disconnect, it'll catch your components, and keep from digging into the pavement. And, if you have brakes on your trailer, make sure you hook up that breakaway switch cable as well. The balls are double-chrome plated, to protect against rust and corrosion. And you can see, we put a little bit of grease on the ball that we use too, to help prevent any metal to metal contact, and extend the life of our ball. The body of it is constructed of steel, and can come in either a black powder coat finish, or chrome like we're showing off today. Now, we've talked about a lot, with our tri-ball features on this, but they don't call it the tow and stow for nothing. With this unit, we can actually store it, and reduce the distance that it sticks off the back of our truck here. So, to do that, we're gonna remove the pin and clip, and we're gonna put it in the 1 7/8 position. That's actually our storage position. We'll then resecure that. We'll pull both the pin and clips then, for our drop and rise position. And, you can see it'll drop all the way down. And once it drops all the way down, our ball actually will roll underneath. We can lift it back up as high as it'll go, and then reinsert our pins, and then store it right back into this position. And this is nice, because we've now reduced the distance that was sticking off the back here, by almost about six inches. It's quite a bit that sticks off the back. And, what this can do, is it can make the difference between being able to store your vehicle in the garage and shut the door. That sticking off at the back there, might've been just that enough that prevented that door from shutting. And also, if you have a slightly oversized garage, mine's a little bit deeper, and if I wanna park my truck in there, and I've got a ball on the back, it will fit, but I can't get around the truck. This will give me the distance that I need to be able to walk around and still utilize my garage when the truck's inside. And I like it. One of my favorite parts, is when you're doing stuff in the garage, or out working, you're usually in a hurry, you're running by, and all of a sudden you've hit your shin on that ball. And boy does that hurt. You're saying a lot of things you shouldn't say. Putting it like this makes it much closer to the truck, and it really minimizes the odds of you accidentally hitting it. I also kind of like the chrome finish. It makes it a little bit easier to see. So, even when it's darker outside, you're walking, maybe just using a flashlight or just a small light, it's gonna reflect really well, making this obvious that it's there. And one final feature that we really haven't talked about, is the hitch pin mounting holes located on our receiver hitch here. We've got two that are a little bit over an inch apart from one another. So, you can adjust as necessary to ensure you've got the appropriate distance for the truck and trailer that you're using in combination together. And that completes our look at B&W's Tow & Stow 3-Ball receiver hitch..

It has worked for everything I have needed. Great when you can stow it away and not have to dig out a different size ball every time you hook up to a different trailer. I have had a few friends order them based on seeing mine.

Received my B&W tow and stow today (February 16, 2018) and this thing is a masterpiece and a beast!. I pick apart anything that I buy and I can't find one thing to say negative. B&W made this with precision and heavy duty materials, very solid!!, even the packaging. The browning logo is well done, slightly recessed so it shouldn't get nicked. I will mainly use it for a 800 pound waive runner and at times a 2,500-4,000 pound trailer. I love the adjustability and the stow capability. This looks to be my last hitch ball. Thanks Danny T (customer service)

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.

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.

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


Just installed on my f250. I love it! I ordered the 7.5 inch drop with the 3 different trailer ball sizes. Super simple. I recommend getting the silencer pad as well as the locking pin. Super fast shipping and super fast responses from the team. They go above and beyond. Will be towing a car trailer with a dodge 2500 on it this weekend so it came at a perfect time. PS: I have a leveled 2016 F250 on 35x11.50’s. The 7.5 inch drop may be a little bit over kill. Any one looking that has the same truck could probably get by with a 4.5 inch drop.

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


I recently received this B&W Tow & Stow hitch, and it's one of the highest quality mechanical devices of this type I've ever seen. The components are all precision machined, welded and painted, and it fits and functions flawlessly. Also, I was quite impressed with the OEM packaging that fully protected it during shipment while being almost 100% recyclable. I needed a hitch that would work well with the EcoHitch hidden front bumper mount that I recently installed in my 2019 F250 to move our travel trailer out of and back into its tight parking space beside our garage, and this B&W unit fits perfectly with approximately 3/8” clearance from the front bumper face when installed. But I also wanted a hitch that would work (with a reducer) in the rear 2.5" receiver of my truck whenever I need to rent a small utility trailer. This adjustable hitch will definitely work great for these two jobs, as well as with the rear 2" receiver of our Jeep if I need to use it for similar duties at any time.


Comments
Im still amazed every time I use this hitch to pull our travel trailer out and later return it to its really tight parking space beside our backyard garage at how strong and well made this hitch is! Id definitely recommend it to anyone who needs a top-quality hitch where variable mounting heights are needed for proper towing configurations.

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


Great product. Extremely well built and looks great. Very easy to put into stow mode and move it back to the positions you want to tow from. The rated capacity of it is great it’ll do everything your truck will do in a bumper pull mode. It is a must for a 19 F-250 with the ride height to get your load level and to make the connection a easier process.


Comments
It’s a great hitch. From height adjustment to having 3 different sized balls that you can tuck and stow out of the way when not in use. Great product with towable weight capacity stamped on it so you now what it can safely tow.

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


Hitch was backordered, but etrailer kept up with the anticipated ship date, kept me informed and shipped as soon as it was available. Great customer service. I installed the hitch yesterday, have not used it yet. Appears to be a very heavy duty hitch and I really like the "stow" part of the "tow and stow" hitch.


Comments
Excellent hitch, easy to switch between sizes, very well built and easy to stow. I would highly recommend.

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


This is a versatile hitch. It could fit the receiver better…seems to be quite a bit of “slop”. I also wish it as a bit longer between the pin hole and the head. I run a Rock Tamer rock deflector and can’t install a clamp to tighten up the hitch to the receiver. I have installed the available B&W rubber gasket. It makes the hitch move less but due to its thickness, makes for difficult install and removal.
