The B&W Tow & Stow adjustable ball mount lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having a 1-7/8" ball, a 2" ball and a 2-5/16" ball allows for even more versatility, making this the ultimate go-to ball mount if you own multiple trailers.


Easily Adjusts and Stows

B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount Operation

To switch the hitch ball, simply remove the pin holding the balls in place and rotate the entire block that the balls are mounted on until the ball you want to use is on top. Then replace the pin to secure the block in place.


Adjusting the height of the ball is just as easy. Remove the pins holding the ball mount platform in place and slide the platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Once you have found the correct height, reinsert the pins and replace the clips.


When you're not towing, you can flip the ball mount platform around and stow it beneath your hitch so that you won't bang your shins. Just remove the pins to slide the ball platform down along the channel and up the back side so that the hitch balls face towards your vehicle. Then replace the pins.


Built-In Anti-Theft System

The Tow & Stow ball mount features a channel that runs along both sides of the shank. This channel not only allows you to slide the ball mount platform up and down to adjust the ball height, but it also prevents removal of the platform when the ball mount is installed, which will help prevent theft of your trailer.


Single Dimensions

A slot is cut into the adjustment channel near the top of the shank. To remove the ball mount platform from the shank you will need to remove the entire ball mount from your hitch. Then remove the pins that hold the platform in place. Flip the platform around to the stowed position on the rear of the shank, and then slide it up until the center pin lines up with the slot in the shank. Pull the platform out towards the rear of the shank until the pin pops out of the adjustment channel.


When the Tow & Stow is secured in your hitch receiver, you will not be able to remove the ball mount platform. This is because the slot in the shank is positioned in such a way that the collar on your hitch will block the pin on the platform from being able to leave the channel. Even if the pins holding the ball mount platform in place are removed, the platform will still be confined to this channel. So, as long as a hitch lock is used to secure the entire ball mount in your hitch receiver, and a coupler lock is used to prevent your trailer's coupler from being disengaged from the ball, your trailer will be secure.

I finally bit the bullet and bought a B&W hitch, 3 ball 7" drop, for my 2021 2500HD. This unit is a tank, not to mention looks pretty awesome as well. Adjustments can be made to any height or ball size needed in minimal time or effort. Now I have everything I need in 1 hitch to accomodate my 3 trailers with very different tongue heights. I was concerned the 7" drop would be dangerously low to curbs but there is plenty of room and no cause for concern This hitch is clearly an investment but over a lifetime of use, should be well worth the money. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with a locking pin

Mounted on a 2021 Yukon XL and used to pull both <1000lb boat trailers with a 1 7/8" ball and a 5,500lb boat trailer with a 2 5/8" ball. The smaller trailers require the full 7" drop on the Yukon, and not many hitches I looked at have this much adjustment range. The hitch is very well constructed and machined. It should stand up to a lot of abuse (and it's heavy as a result). I was pleasantly surprised at how small the profile is when the ball is swung forward and out of the way-- the hitch is almost even with the bumper. I didn't think that would be useful, but it turns out that it really is.

It has been good hitch I measured pickup & measurements said 7” was what I needed but I drag hitch every time I drive in driveway when balls aren’t in hide mode will drag one of balls. Wished I had bought 5”. It is a finger masher if your not careful when adjusting height or moving to hide mode



- BWTS10049B
by:

Love the product! Versatility is amazing I can use it on multiple vehicles low and high. I have the ball I need for all my trailer needs. No bolts to make any adjustments, just pull out some pins and snap them back in. I have had it for over 1 year and its still clean and working out great.



- BWTS10049B
by:

Great hitch. I bought the 3 ball with 8" drop hitch. My utility trailer needs it almost all the way down. My boat trailer needs it almost all the way up on my Chevy 2500HD. The only time I have removed it was to install a Pintle hitch one day to haul a trailer for a tractor. Tip: Use silicone spray on the adjustable pins. Use of lithium grease fouls them up so it's difficult to remove and reinstall them (collects dirt, dust). Also lubricate your hitch lock monthly, or you won't be able to open it if you ever want to remove the hitch.


Comments
After one tear the hitch is still like new. Regular cleaning and light litigation of the pins is required. Since I leave the hitch on my truck all the time I often forget to lubricate the hitch pin locked often as I should. Great hitch. Id buy it again. If youre considering buying one, do it. You wont regret it.

I need the adjustability for different tongue heights. The added benefit is connecting to trailers that have been parked without blocking and whose jacks have sunk deep into the ground beyond what they can compensate for. Being able to drop my ball to get under the hitch to connect is a big help.



- BWTS10049B
by:

Excellent workmanship, materials, and Made in USA. Looks great on the truck. Lotta bang for the buck in this design. Dont think any other hitch offers all the versatility this hitch provides. Quick shipping with no hassles from the etrailer folks.

This thing is awesome. No more switching hitches out for different trailer tongue heights or ball size. Just pull a few pins, adjust and you are off and running. Will have one of these in each of my tow vehicles.

I've owned this hitch a year paired behind my 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD with a 7" lift. Performs excellent! Towed several different trailers with different ball sizes and different towing heights totally over 5k miles. Don't ever plan on replacing it because it does everything I need it to do in great fashion! Thanks B&W for making a great product and etrailer for being an excellent provider!



- BWTS10049B
by:

I would like to split my review into two parts. First, I can't say enough about how great the customer service was from the beginning of my ordering process all the way through delivery of my hitch. I placed my order over the phone and my rep was extremely professional, efficient, and thorough during the entire call. Shipment was very fast and FREE. Etrailer.com really has their stuff together! Next will be my review of the hitch I purchased; I can't say enough about the B&W tow and stow hitch. I bought my first one many many years ago and it still performs today like it did when it was new. However, it only had a 5" drop and I needed more drop in my current truck/tire combination that I'm running. This hitch is the 7" drop 7 1/2" rise three ball model and likely the last hitch I'll ever have to buy. Don't let the price scare you if you have different trailers that require different height set-ups or ball sizes. These are the best hitches out there and Etrailer.com brings it to market as well or better than anyone. One recommendation... Purchase a locking pin for through receiver use. This is a very nice hitch and someone may tempted to make it their own if it's not secured properly.

Just received ball mount yesterday. This ball mount is heavy duty with a quality feel. Fit and finish are impressive with durable coatings and tight tolerances. Allows me to tow my motorcycle trailer and cargo trailer with one ball mount (different ball sizes and heights for each trailer). I was worried that the 7” drop might be too low for my 2016 Ram 1500 with stock air suspension, but since installed, it looks good and I’m no longer concerned with possibly bottoming out during daily driving. Added the silencer pad upon initial install and haven’t heard any rattling. So far I’m overall impressed with this product.

I received my hitch 1 day before schedule. Wow, and what a beautiful piece of American craftsmanship it really is. I will be hauling my 2 horses across the country with confidence knowing I have the best trailer hitch made. Soo happy with the entire experience!! I would recommend etrailer.com and b&w to anyone. Thanks



- BWTS10049B
by:

Best hitch ever. I use on my daily driver that goes a week with no trailer then maybe 3 different trailers in a two day window. Being able to stow the balls under the bumper is great and having all three sizes, at the correct height, at the ready is fantastic. I do take it out and spray lube/clean maybe 2x/year. I don’t know if that’s necessary but I know my pins for adjustment are always easy to use and it makes setup quick and easy.

I love my tow and stow hitch. I have multiple trailers that require different size balls. This hitch eliminated a half a dozen hitches with different size balls and different drop lengths. One of the best purchases I have ever made!! I would highly recommend this hitch to everybody who tows a trailer.



- BWTS10049B
by:

Well built, very strong. The welds look awesome! This is a heavy ball mount but if you are considering an adjustable height and ball mount this is the best one I ran across. Most people will install it, lock it in place and seldom remove it so the weight isn't really an issue. I love the flexibility this hitch provides. Numerous height and ball diameter combinations allow me to back up to any of my trailers and hook on. I didn't think I cared about the ability to fold the balls up under the receiver but I actually use this feature and like it. Highly recommend!

I'm very pleased with the new Tow and Stow. We have several trailers with different ball sizes and coupler heights. In the past, we have purchased a new ball mount and ball for each new trailer that we didn’t already have a combination to fit. This has resulted in quite the collection of them hanging in the garage. None of the trailers are stored at home, some are stored at properties several hundred miles away at vacation or hunting properties. Inevitably we found ourselves hauling one trailer to a property with one ball mount and forgetting or picking up the wrong ball mount for a trailer we wanted to use stored on that property, we would purchase another…. The B&W Tow and Stow has solved ALL of these problems and a few others. The fit and finish are excellent. The mounting tube is the perfect size and doesn’t rattle like the Reese ball mounts. We always have the right ball at the right height for anything we need to pull from the smallest utility trailer, jet ski, boat, or side by side hauler. The best part is since we tow with a GMC Yukon, I never have to ram my shins into the ball mount as we unload the back of the truck. The price seemed high for this ball mount until I started adding up the money for all of the other ball mounts. It doesn’t take very long to exceed the price. Another advantage is we never have to place another dirty extra ball mount in the back of the Yukon in case we want to pull a different trailer. Best purchase I have made in years!



- BWTS10049B

Very convenient. Was concerned that in the stow position it would not fit under the bumper of my 2013 Yukon. It tucks under nicely with the middle ball pointing down.

Since getting a newer truck I needed a longer/drop down hitch. I am now starting to pull trailers that have all three size balls. This hitch has worked perfectly and with having all sized balls I don't worry about what trailer I'm pulling. I have never had issues with wobble or any play in the hitch. I typically take it off when not is use but have left it on for a couple weeks a time. Weather has not deteriorated the finish at all. I would high recommend using a locking type hitch pin - if nothing else for a piece of mind that your $$ hitch won't be stolen. Would I buy it again - absolutely. It may be pricey but it seems to be a well built piece of equipment and for me, when I'm pulling a trailer, I don't want to worry about the attachment point. With this hitch I don't worry that I'll have an issue.


Comments
Its been a year and I have no complaints and would buy it again. I tow various trailers from time to time and having this ball/hitch allows me to know I can back up to a trailer and Ive got not only the size ball I need but I can also adjust the height of the ball to make sure the tongue of the trailer Im pulling is level when Im towing. You will want to purchase a lockable hitch pin so someone wont want this great hitch more than you. Once you have it locked on it is designed that no one can take the adjustable piece off the main hitch.And buy the way- I usually remove it when not in use but sometimes due to pulling a trailer more often I leave it mounted to receiver so its in the weather. I did pull it apart a couple time just to oil up the sliding surfaces but other than that it hasnt weather or rusted anywhere.

Great product. Fair price and delivered as promised. The hitch has more adjustment than I’ve needed so far. It appears to be sturdy enough to expect a lifetime of service. I really like the fold-away feature and the anti-rattle attained with the lock down accessory. It even looks good; several people have commented on the hitch and have asked about it over this past year.



- BWTS10049B
by:

Quality product with the reputation to back it up. Highly recommended. I should have just gotten the 2 ball setup as not much use for the 1-7/8". But an extra $10, why not?

  • How to Pick Out Correct Ball Mount Rise/Drop for 2017 GMC Canyon Duramax ATX
    I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount rise/drop. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch while on level ground. Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground. Since I do not know what either of those dimensions are on...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for Truck with 6" Lift
    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount is an excellent ball mount option. It's made in the USA and has a proprietary stowaway design.

  • How to Determine What Ball Mount Will Work With Silverado With Lift Kit
    The best way to determine what size ball mount you need is to take a couple of quick measurements. Park the trailer and the tow vehicle on a level area.
