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 8 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 8 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable 2 Ball Mount - 325-GH-318

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at this Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount with stacked receivers. This is going to allow you to hook your trailer up to your tow vehicle. This will slide right into your two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle. And then it's going to provide both a two inch diameter ball and a 2 5/16 inch ball to provide the connection point for your trailer coupler. So whether your coupler has a 2 5/16 inch ball coupler or a two inch ball coupler, you're gonna have both options available here.

Very easy. You can just pull the pin, flip it over depending on what you're needing. And then of course, we're also going to have these eight stacked, two inch by two inch receivers that will accept the included ball mount as well as other hitch-mount accessories like your bike racks and that sort of thing. So having these receivers stacked like this is going to allow us to accommodate lots of different trailer heights. So we can move our ball mount up or down to accommodate that trailer height.

Make sure it's gonna be nice and level as we're towing it. Our maximum drop from the top inside edge of our receiver tube, down to where our coupler is gonna sit at the lowest point here would be 17 1/2 inches. So that's gonna be quite a bit of drop there to accommodate those trailers that sit quite a bit lower than your vehicle's hitch. So then of course we have all those other adjustments in between straight out and down to 17 1/2. So, lots of adjustability there to accommodate different trailers.

So if you are hauling multiple different trailers, using some for work, some for camping, that sort of thing, you can adjust to accommodate all those different heights. But this does have a nice heavy duty steel construction. So it is gonna be ideal for your extra large towing needs. This does have a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds. That of course is the weight of the trailer plus the load included, and it's gonna have a tongue weight or downward pressure on your hitch ball of 1,500 pounds.

So you wanna make sure that that's gonna work for your setup. This does have a Zinc Primer and Powder Coat finish. That's gonna resist corrosion. Our balls do have the Matte Black finish on them. So they're gonna look really nice for us and provide some corrosion resistance as well. So the 2-Ball Mount is going to come with the pin, so we can easily move this, and we can also use the same 5/8 inch diameter pin for other hitch-mount accessories like a bike rack and that sort of thing. If we're not needing to use the ball mount, we can easily use that pin for that as well. They do not include a hitch pin for keeping this whole unit mounted in your hitch. You probably already have one, but if not, it's just gonna be a standard 5/8 inch diameter pin there as well. We have lots of options available here at etrailer.com. We also have locking pins available that will ensure that stays in place for you. This does meet the SAE J684 certified standards. So it's gonna-- You can trust it's gonna do a good job for you, meets those quality standards. It's also made here in the USA so you can trust it's going to be made to the "high-quality" standards. We've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US. And Gen-Y does have a great reputation for building very solid, robust products. And as you can see, this does come with these arms, support arms that will mount onto your vehicle just because this is such an extreme drop. This is gonna provide extra stability for you. So you're not gonna have to worry about things mounted on the bottom. Most point here, swaying or anything like that. These support arms are gonna provide that secondary connection to ensure that it's gonna be a nice stable connection for your trailer or bike rack, other hitch-mount accessories. So overall, really nice build here. It's gonna hold up well. Do a good job for you for towing or other hitch-mount accessories that you want to have stacked like this. So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

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
Gen-Y Torsion Pintle Hook Mounting Plate for 2" Hitches - 14 Hole - 16,000 lbs
$513.43
, that you can pair with a Curt pintle hook item # C48210

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


Other than the little paint chip on the trailer hitch that I purchased from these guys that I don't really care about because It's gonna get dinged up one way or another I love it it's great it gets the job done



by:

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


The hitch is heavy and appears well-made. Paint finish is excellent. Two suggestions: the top weld could be smoothed a bit more. This is only an appearance matter, very minor. Second, hitch is supplied with two pins -- not locking. Please -- on a $250 item, the extra cost of furnishing locking pins must be small. Yet, I have locking pins already (for class III) which I assume will work fine for class Iv hardware. And any buyer can always order locking pins. I bought this to tow a U-Haul car trailer on an F150 with max tow package. Have not tried it yet.

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.
