Multiple Stacked Receivers for Easy Adjustment

stacked receivers

This unique mount from Gen-Y Hitch includes a ball mount that can be easily positioned in one of the 6 stacked receivers that sits along the vertical shank of the unit. This dual-ball mount lets you tow a trailer with a 2" ball coupler or a 2-5/16" ball coupler.


With the 6 stacked receivers, not only do you have the ability to adjust the height of the included ball mount, but you also have the ability to add various other hitch-mounted accessories. Insert a bike rack or cargo carrier. Mount a spare tire carrier. Use a tow bar to flat tow your vehicle. Or just add a fun hitch cover. This heavy-duty mount is built with a 1,500-lb tongue weight, so you can even use multiple hitch accessories at the same time, as long as there are no clearance issues. This means that you can use your hitch-mounted bike rack to haul your bikes while also flat towing your vehicle.

This ball mount is about as heavy duty as it gets. I needed it for the 12.5” drop not for so much for it’s 10K rating. The quality is outstanding, precision made. I’m sold on Gen-Y’s. I’d buy this again. eTrailer got this to me super fast which is a huge plus.

Haven't used it yet but this thing is very well built. I moved away from a wrap around style drop down hitch to this, machined pockets for the ball, the wrap around style has too much movement with heavier loads. Shipping and price very good as well in my opinion.

Used on 2020 Jayco Seneca 37K motorhome. Product is really well built and easy to use. So far only towed about 50 miles, this has leveled our auto hauler trailer.

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Has done what it is supposed to do. I have used the hitch to tow two boats over the last two years using both ball sizes. The only issue is the appearance. Saltwater creates rust and break down of the coating on the hitch. Was never dunked in salt has been effected being near saltwater. Hitch was washed with freshwater after each use in salt. I probably wouldn’t buy again. I have seen some other hitches that can do similar adjustments that do better near saltwater environments.


Comments
Thank you for your review! Black powder coated products to tend to take a beating when it comes to salt water environments. You should be able to use a stainless steel coated ball mount that will resist salt water much better. Attached is our ion of ball mounts that have similar characteristics to this one that you have been using.

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I've not towed with it yet, but it's very high quality and seems way overbuilt. I like the hammered finish and the components are very nice. Once I figured out how they work, Gen-Y's 'twisting lock pin' is easier to use than a standard cotter pin and adds some piece of mind that it's not going anywhere. Love that you can store the ball mount in front of the hitch when not using it - including sideways so that it doesn't reduce ground clearance, even when in the lowest receiver. The only thing I don't like about it - which etrailer comments on in the online item description - is that it doesn't fit very snug. Combined with the 2-1/2 to 2" reducer sleeve, there's a fair amount of play. Not sure yet if this is going to create rattling when towing (that would reduce my stars). One note: based on the Gen-Y website's method for determining the appropropriate drop for my vehicle, I should have ordered the 10" drop. I did my own measuring and ordered the 7-1/2" drop instead, which works perfectly for my 2021 RAM 3500 SRW 4x4.

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Haven't used the product but I have no doubt it will do the trick. I'm a over thinking, over prep kinda guy so...if I had any doubts this was the best option, I wouldn't have purchased it. etrailer...so...I'm pretty impressed with your sales/customer support. I received very quick responses to specific "will this work with this thing?" questions....and the answers were on target AND specific. No generalities, no sales pitch BS. If my idea wasn't the best...I got an alternative, along with part numbers, pictures etc. AND...I ordered this on a Thursday afternoon, and got the part delivered the next day. FREE Wasn't next day service...just happened that way. Pretty freakin nice.


Comments
Well, Im sure the product is ok but it becamse immediately apparent it would not work for my configuration. Pretty much a waste of $300 but that was a risk I took.

Showed up on time. Needed a heavy duty hitch for my lifted super duty. Used for first time today and worked perfectly. My beaver tail landscape trailer has to towed level or it bottoms out. With this hitch no worries about towing level. Great product!

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I love this hitch. It is exactly what I wanted for my new f150. It is beefy and I expect it to last a very long time. Etrailer.com was equally as amazing. I ordered the mount with 4 day shipping because we had a weekend at the lake planned with our boat. I ordered it around 5 pm. THEY SHIPPED IT AT MIDNIGHT. It arrived in 2 days. Just wow.

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


The hitch is everything I wanted and couldn’t be more pleased how it performs! The only complaint I have is when I received the hitch is that the powder coat was chipped away in two spots and down to the bare metal. I contact etrailer and was told by one of there customer service reps that it’s a common occurrence and normal to receive a hitch with scuff and chips because of the way it’s stored in the warehouse, I just hope they can improve on this on the future. The product works awesome and I couldn’t be happier for how it looks and performs on towing the many different trailers I have!

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Adding to the back of my Newmar Dutch Star to provide a 3 to 4 inch drop for my flat towing of a Ram 1500 with Blue Ox setup. A little disappointed that there is a little play in the connection to DS tow hitch, just a slight wiggle. Got a J-Pin, but Newmar hitch didn’t have 2 holes.May use the top holes for some sort of carrier ( bike or spare ). Didn’t have need for ball hitch, but maybe in the future. Infinite pins DID NOT work with this 16k ball mount - too short.

Review from a similar Versa-Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


We live on an Island in SW Florida where everyone has some sort of Hitch, mostly for Boats. After Lugging this Beauty out to our 34ft Class A Motorhome, we installed our Tow Dolly and Double Bike Rack, and everything came together. The non-rattle screws worked great on the Bike Rack. The 10in Drop leveled the Dolly Tounge just right. We are off to be Full Time RVers, never to worry about Towing again... Thanks..

Ask the Experts about this Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Is Stabilizer Bar Kit # 325-GH-0100 Needed When Using the Gen-Y Adjustable Receiver # 325-GH-316
    To address your initial question, yes, if you are using the Gen-Y Adjustable Receiver # 325-GH-316, that has a 12-1/2" rise/drop, then you will need to use the Gen-Y Adjustable Stabilizer Bar Kit # 325-GH-0100. The reason being that the adapter hangs down so low that in order to use the lowest receiver normally and keep the weight capacity of 10,000 lbs requires some extra stability. You will want to ensure that 12" of drop is exactly what you are needing by measuring from level...

  • Recommended Ball Mount with Large Drop for Lifted Ram 2500
    We do have a nice selection of adjustable ball mounts that might work to tow your trailer level with your 2009 Ram that features an 8 inch lift. I first recommend taking a few measurements to see exactly what kind of drop you are needing on the ball mount. Starting with the truck parked on level ground, measure from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver. Then on your trailer, take a measurement from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. The difference in these two measurements...

  • Is Hitch Stabilizer Needed When Using Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount In 12-1/2 inch Drop Setting
    Yes, Gen-Y does strongly recommend using a stabilizer kit # 325-GH-0100 with the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-316 if you end up using a drop setting of more than 12 inches. This ball mount setup in the lowest setting is 12-1/2 inches of drop which is why you'd need it if you were to use the lowest setting. This prevents any wobble or sway from starting.

    It sounds like you're trying to mount a bike rack on your Gen-Y Ball Mount using a hitch adapter on the top receiver with enough clearance to not interfere with your trailer's jack. I'm not going to tell you that you can't do this (and Gen-Y says it's ok to do), but honestly, I think your best bet is returning the Gen-Y 5" Rise/Drop # 325-GH-214 that you just bought and going with one that can give you the rise you need without using a hitch adapter for your accessory.
