An illustration shows the eleven inch clearance level needed between the ground and B and W Tow and Stow hitch.

Note: To avoid the Tow & Stow hitting steep driveways or curbs, we recommend at least 11" of clearance between the ground and the lowest point of the drop hitch, as seen above.

The B&W Tow & Stow adjustable ball mount lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having both 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.

Stow the ball and mounting platform on this double-ball ball mount beneath your hitch for a sleek look when you are done towing. Tow up to 7,500 lbs with the 2" ball or 18,000 lbs with the 2-5/16" ball.


Mike B was excellent! I had ordered the wrong size hitch, thinking my new truck was a 3",in fact I needed a 2.5". Mike worked me thru ordering the correct hitch and sent me all the information and return label for the wrong size hitch. Very smooth process and the follow up was fantastic. What a great customer service experience. I will be recommending friends and employees.


Shipping was amazingly fast and the hitch is exactly as described, very well built strong and great looking. Etrailer always ships fast with great prices and awesome customer service. If you tow with your truck you will like this hitch.


I have used the B&W Stow and Go for a year now and have to say this is the best hitch I have ever used. When it is stowed, you barely know it's there and you can't accidentally run into it. I have the 2" and 2 5/16" balls on the hitch and have used them both. I have a 2 5/16" Bulldog coupler on my travel trailer and this mates with it perfectly but when I rent equipment from the local rental shop, their trailer has a 2" ball, makes life easy.
Also, I upgraded the hitch to the 2 1/2" shank to fit my Ford SuperDuty, no wobble, no noise, overall GREAT hitch!


Haven’t used it yet but seems to be top quality. Glad to support a made in the USA product. Received in record time. Thank you. My only complaint is that you would think for the money this ball mount costs it would come with a pin to lock into the hitch. Had to run out and buy one. Looking forward to using it.


Great heavy duty hitch, hopefully the last one I will ever buy and will definitely never lend out, so well worth the money!



Best hitch ever!! I bought when I was 42 and Im convinced this will be the last hitch I ever own!


Not Multiflex friendly. If you have a multiflex tailgate B&W makes a specific stow away hitch that won’t hit the tailgate. Otherwise the stow away is the best adjustable hitch I have ever seen or used in 20+ years of towing trailers.


Super nice heavy quality hitch. Fast delivery and easy purchase. Great product overall


Great service and a fast delivery. Looking forward to towing with the new hitch


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


I did not expect the product to be this great. The material are good to go. I really like the fact that the tow hitch set has some pretty serious weight to it. Knowing that gives me a peace of mind when I tow. This product was build to last. You will get what you paid for and every dime was worth it! Highly recommend.

One year has passed and the tow hitch stands strong. The quality of this hitch is still worth every penny out fourth. Thank You for such a great product. Highly recommend.


Products are as described and very high quality. Shipping was excellent! Got everything 2 days before expected.i always have a great experience with e-trailer


Nicely built should last for ever. I will never have to be concerned about hitch when towing.


Super fast shipping. Easy install. Agent followed up to make sure my item was delivered. I a extremely happy with my purchasing experience. This hitch is a beast!!


Came quickly, solid, fits perfect. Less concerned about trailer hitch failure now.


Exactly what was needed order the wrong one first time made a call problem was resolved and a replacement sent out the next day.
First class customer service could not ask any more .
Will definitely use again!!



Works great use it ever day


This B & W hitch along with etrailer should be setting the standard for the rest of the manufacturing and e-commerce societies. The quality, craftsmanship and engineering behind this hitch are second to none. The product is not made cheaply therefore it is not priced cheap. You truly get what you pay for and this is no exception. As seen in the attached photo of the new hitch tucked nicely under my 2015 GMC 2500HD I changed the included pins to lynch pins.


Well made adjustable heavy duty hitch. Doesn’t come with locking pins. Excellent product


Awesome product!


Great service, hitch was supposed to come in a week, it came in two days. Have previous experience with B&W , just wanted to upgrade to heavier duty version. Thanks, will definitely order again.


The Hitch is well built, solid and easy to adjust. It has good security features, the hitch balls and slider assembly cannot be removed while hitch is installed.


Very well made think it’s just what I needed instead of two drops for the two ball sizes


Works as intended, used daily for a year now. Would buy again.


As can be expected from B&W, this is a great hitch! Well built! Highly recommend!


B&W hitches are a very nice piece and well made. Great communication and fast 2 day shipping.

  • Can the B&W BWTS20037B Be Stowed on a 2018 Chevy 3500HD?
    As the ball on the B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS20037B can be turned parallel to the ground, you should not have an issue using the 5 inch drop. That being said, if you do need more drop, the 7 inch drop # BWTS20040B will be the better option.

  • How Tall Is The B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS20040B To Maintain The Recommended 11" Clearance?
    I reached out to B&W to verify the height of the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS20040B. They informed me from the top of the hitch to the lowest point will be 11.1" This would only give you approximately 10.4" of clearance. You will want to step down to the 5" Drop # BWTS20037B to maintain the 11" of clearance required when used in the lowest position unless you plan on lifting your 2022 Ford F-250.

  • Can a Ball Mount Be Inverted To Give a Rise Instead of Drop
    I am not exactly sure which particular ball mount this is in reference to but the one you came from, the Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches part # 2753 can be inverted to increase rise up to 2-3/4". This is the case for most ball mounts as well but if you let me know exactly which one you have then I can confirm this for you. Please note, you will want the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler to be equal or close to the distance from the ground to the top inside...

    Sounds like you are looking for a ball mount. It looks like the 2020 Ram 2500 Crew Cab 4WD diesel comes with a 2-1/2" receiver from the factory.

  • Which B and W Adjustable Ball Mount for 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    The amount of drop you'd need from an adjustable B and W Tow and Stow ball mount for your 2021 Ford F-250 really depends on the the trailer you'd be towing but most likely if the trailer is larger you'd get by with the 5 inch drop version part # BWTS20037B but let's say it's a smaller camper with smaller wheels and tires you'd probably need the 7-1/2 inch drop part # BWTS20040B. I attached a help article on how to determine the correct amount of rise/drop you'd need to tow your trailer level.

  • How to Determine Drop of Adjustable Ball Mount Needed
    To determine the amount of rise/drop you'll need, take a measurement from the inside top edge of the hitch receiver tube to the ground. Then, measure from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. The difference between the two numbers will be the rise of drop you need. If the hitch sits taller than the trailer coupler, you'll need a drop. If the coupler sits taller, you'll need a ball mount with a rise. I'll link to a help article that shows exactly how to do this.
