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.

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




by:

I’ve ordered several things from etrailer. Each time you got me my stuff within just a few days. All products were in perfect condition and packaged well. It was the same with this hitch. Thanks for a great product with a reasonable price.




by:

Excellent product and shipped extremely quick! Thanks guys!




by:

This is the second B%W Tow and Stow receiver I've purchased. I still have the first and it worked and held up very well through our crappy Michigan winters. The road salt makes a mess out of everything on our trucks, but this receiver has held up better then the others I've purchased over the years. Also really easy to switch from 2" to 2-5/16" ball.




by:

The real deal - The B&W Tow & Stow is very well machined and built. - Buy it.




by:

Great well built hitch and timely delivery by etrailer. Adjustments are simple. Just complete a 12000 mi camper trip to Alaska and back. Performed very well and compatible with Rock Guards also purchased here.




by:

Steven was great!!!great customer service, Would definitely buy from etrailer again, ordered tow ball hitch shipped and deliver as quoted super fast shipping!!




by:

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
Jeffrey O - 06/06/2022


by:

This reciever is amazing. I use it to pull four different trailers, all of which are different heights. The easy adjust makes changing trailers a breeze.




by:

Every time I mow I have to move different equipment and boats around so I can mow were they were at. Each trailer has a different ball size. It is a great time saver and so easy to change to whatever ball size I need. I'm well pleased with the B&W Tow and Stow and how quickly I receive anything I order from etrailer.




by:

Awesome hitch, installed on company F450 work truck, have the 3 ball setup on my personal F450, I'd buy a third one if I had another truck to put it on




by:

Great hitch, super useful. Maybe could have gone with the 3 ball version but haven’t needed it yet. ETrailer made purchasing easy and customer service was on point.




by:

This is a fantastic product. We use it to haul trailer houses.




by:

Very nice high quality hitch. All the pins fit really nice. Even when all the pins are removed the hitch doesn't fall to pieces.




by:

Fitment and style go above and beyond! Delivery was faster than expected




by:

Have them on two trucks. Works well and saves a lot of time as I have several trailers with different size hitches.




by:

Excellent product. It has done everything I expected. I also have a B&W 5th Wheel Hitch. All of there products are second to none.




by:

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.




by:

Etrailer is the best customer service and for any of my trailer needs I will be ordering from Etrailer Because they get it here when you need it no matter what is going on in this crazy world. Also Cheryl is the best rep they have because she tells it like it is and let’s you know how it is with no B.S. and I’m thankful for that !




by: 10/18/2022

Nice looking hitch, get lots of compliments. Pull a 10K dump trailer and flatbed with skid steer...no problem




by:

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.


Comments
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.

I just received the it today. It was delivered quickly. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it is obviously very well made and rugged. Obviously a quality hitch. I love the way it stows out of the way when youre not using it. I'm sure I am going to be very pleased with this purchase.




by:

Works like a dream! Only hitch I will ever own!




by:

Great quality product and very universa l.




by:

Exactly what I needed for towing my boat, trailer and other equipment. Excellent service and these folks gave me the rite information for what I needed to order. Will def purchase from them again when the time comes.

  • 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. Here's a couple...

  • 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.

  • Can the B&W BWTS20037B Be Stowed on a 2018 Chevy 3500HD?
