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 7 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 7 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.

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 have used this hitch setup with a 7.3 F-250 for just over a year. It has been put to the test, hauling loads at rated capacity over thousands of miles. I love the ability to quickly adjust hitch levels for different trailers and the whole assembly is well made. It is machined very tight and so there is virtually no slack, so no banging and clanging as you drive. My only suggested improvement for the manufacturer is to improve the coating on the product. The crinkle coating is easily damaged and will flake, exposing bare metal and allowing rust to take hold. Thankfully the steel is very high grade and so corrosion is light at these bare spots.

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


I purchased based on the photos that show 2 pins in the hitch as the top pin holds the pintle attachment. When it arrived and was not included I was told cannot send pintle attachment and would have to pay xx to return. Said no option for pintle attachment separate.
Person I spoke with even agreed it looked as if included. I have one on my other truck and love the product. I felt the advertisement was not what I received.


Comments
Unfortunately Gen-Y no longer sells their pintle hook. The good news is they do sell a pintle mounting plate for 2 inch hitches, item # 325-GH-1201

  • Measuring Ball Mount for Deep Drop Needed to Tow Trailer Level
    The frustration is in where you are measuring. The measurement is from the top of the shank othe the bottom of the ball platform. This is what will get you the correct ball height because the coupler will sit over the hitch ball. So if you are measuring your trailer coupler when level, then you measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground and then from the ground to the inside top of your receiver opening on your trailer hitch to get the proper drop. This is how all manufacturers...

  • What Is The Best Drop For Ball Mount To Gain Prop Protector Clearance?
    If I understand you correctly, it sound like you have a couple of things going. On level ground you want to tow as level as possible, but you don't want to bang up your trailer going in and out of your driveway. I recommend you go with an adjustable ball mount like the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 12-1/2" Drop - 16K # 325-GH-516 or the 15" Drop - 10K # 325-GH-317.

  • How Do I know How Much Drop Is Needed When Getting A Ball Mount?
    Finding the correct rise or drop will depend on two things. First will be the measurement from the ground to the inside top of your trailer hitch. This measurement will vary between hitch manufacturer, vehicle manufacturer, tire size if not the stock tires, and if a lift is used. As you have the lift and I am guessing tires that are not the stock size, you will definitely need to measure. Once you have this measurement, you will need to measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler...

  • Longest Drop Adjustable Ball Mount for a 2 Inch Receiver
    Our longest drop hitch for a 2" receiver is going to be the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers item # 325-GH-318. This adjustable ball mount has a 17-1/2" drop and a 10,000 lbs capacity like the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount item # 325-GH-317 you were looking at. The 17-1/2" Gen-Y comes with the recommended stabilizer system as well. You won't be able to add another ball mount to either of these drop hitches to gain the 3" or more you could possibly need so these will...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount With Large Drop For 2007 Ford Van
    For your application, I recommend an adjustable ball mount with a large drop like the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 15" Drop - 10K # 325-GH-317. The Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 17-1/2" Drop # 325-GH-328 is the deepest drop we have available. The hi-low adapter Blue Ox High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7" Rise/Drop - 12" Long, # BX88241, is for flat towing use only. It cannot be used to pull a trailer.

  • Finding the Correct Ball Mount to Tow a Trailer with a Lifted Jeep
    That's quite a bit of drop. Before guessing that you need 15 inches of drop you can measure to determine exactly what you need. I've linked a help article about finding the correct rise or drop. Basically you need to measure on level ground to the inside top of your Jeep's hitch receiver opening. Then measure from level ground to the underside of your trailer's coupler and find the difference between the two. This number is the amount of drop (Or rise technically but in your case it's...

  • Availability of Ball Mount with More Drop Than 12-1/2
    If you are wanting a ball mount with a further drop than the 12" Drop Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount # AMSC12 you will need a Gen-Y Hitch like part # 325-GH-317 which has a 15" drop. Aside from that we don't have a "traditional" ball mount with as much length or drop as the Convert-A-Ball option that you referenced. Gen-Y does recommend using a stabilizer bar kit like part # 325-GH-0100 to help keep their hitch from wobbling. I also recommend installing a hitch lock like part # 34061072-D to...

    To determine the correct ball mount for your 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 that has a 3" leveling kit and you are planning on putting 35" tires on you will need to measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the trailer hitch receiver on your truck, and the with your trailer level you will need to measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler.

    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.
