Video Transcript for Gen-Y Stacked Receivers Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Review

Hey, everybody, how's it going Today, we're gonna be going over the line of Gen-Y adjustable ball mounts with stacked receivers. An adjustable ball mount is really gonna be best because we can change the hitch ball height for multiple trailers. So whether you only have one trailer right now or you do have multiple trailers, I do recommend adjustable just because it leaves you with a wide range of compatibility. If you switch trailers, you get a second trailer, I just recommend these in general over the fixed because overall, down the line, it is gonna save you money. So this particular ball mount here is offered in a ton of different variations. The first one comes down to hitch size compatibility.

Now, the model we have pictured here today is just the standard 2-inch, which is gonna be the most widely compatible with your half-ton trucks, but if you have a larger 3/4-ton or 1-ton truck, this ball mount is also offered in 2 1/2-inch and 3-inch hitch configurations. So one of the main features of this ball mount and how it's gonna set itself apart from some of the other options on there is the stacked receiver design. So this is great for a number of different reasons. Number one, let's say we wanted to tow a trailer and haul a bike rack. We could certainly do so because we would just have to have the ball mount in the lower hole and then our bike rack or other accessories, such as a cargo carrier in the top one.

So it's really gonna allow for a wide range of accessories to be used. I know some people use these on their motor home as a high-low adapter to get your towbar nice and level and there's also options that have offset receivers. So one of these stacked receivers is above the shank and that's gonna be great for those people with ground clearance issues. So there's all different kinds of things you can do with these. They're very versatile.

They work great for pretty much everything. So in regards to that adjustability, there's really a wide range of options. We have the standard 5-inch drop version, which is what you see here. You can also invert this to use it in a rise for 5 inches of rise all the way down to 17 1/2 inches of drop or rise. So really, no matter what truck and trailer combo you have, there is gonna be an option to get everything nice and level.

Now, if you're not sure how to measure for your rise and drop, this is actually very simple. On the vehicle side here, we wanna make sure we're parked on a nice level surface. We just simply measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube and then we compare that to the measurement on the trailer from the ground to the bottom of the coupler while that trailer is level. Now, the difference between those two measurements is gonna let you know what your rise and drop requirements are. Now, keep in mind, a lotta guys like to think that, "Oh, I'll just get something with a ton of rise and drop. That way, it's gonna cover me no matter what truck and trailer I have," but unfortunately, that's really not the best option. You want something that's gonna cover you by a few inches, but you don't wanna go too far because you'll see that you're gonna run into ground clearance issues due to the stacked receiver design. You can see this is a half-ton truck. I do have it lifted a little bit. This is a 5-inch drop version and there's plenty of clearance here, but I really wouldn't go much more. So you wanna make sure that you're covered for all your trailers, but you don't wanna go too far 'cause then you'll run into issues with ground clearance. So we're also gonna get a wide range of weight capacity. So this particular one is a 16K. This is a great middle-of-the-road option. If you don't need that extra capacity, you can save some money, go down to the 10K, but it's also offered into a capacity up to 32,000 pounds. So no matter how light or how heavy your trailer is, there's gonna be an option for you. So with all of our ball mount configurations, we're gonna get two included hitch ball sizes. A smaller 2-inch and the larger 2 5/16. When we need to flip sizes, it's very easy. We have a pin clip on the side here. Simply pull that out, pull out the pin, and then we can just flip this around. Line everything up. Reinstall our pin and clip, and now we've successfully changed hitch sizes. Now, if we wanna go one step further, how easy it is to adjust the rise and drop 'cause we mentioned earlier there's a wide range here that this offers. All we do is just simply move this up or down into the respective stacked receivers depending on your rise and drop needs. So our current configuration is gonna be designed for trailers that have a 2-inch or a 2 5/16-inch trailer coupler, but there's also an option out there that it comes with a pencil hook if you have one of those ag trailers or industrial trailers with a lunette ring. So one of the reasons that I really like Gen-Y, it's not only that they have all these great features built in, but they also do a really good job of making their products durable and look great. So I really personally like the hammer powder-coated finish that they use here. It's got specs of black and silver in there and it does look great if you ask me, but it's also very, very durable. Ball mounts are certainly one of the more abused items because we're banging other metal components in them, such as the trailer coupler. So keeping our ball mount looking nice and new, it's not only gonna look great, it's also gonna help protect the metal underneath from rest and corrosion and the actual hitch ball assembly here has a nice matte finish. So overall, it looks great and it's gonna be super durable. So in regards to what comes with your adjustable ball mount, you're gonna get the main portion here known as a stacked receiver and you're also gonna get a two hitch ball, that 2-inch and 2 5/16, and you're also going to get a pin here that's gonna secure the hitch ball to the stacked receiver. What you don't get is a hitch pin and clip, which secures it to the vehicle. Now, you could just buy a standard one like we have here. These are pretty cost-effective. You would need to pick one of those up, but what I highly recommend, I like going with a locking hitch pin. That way, you don't have to worry about someone coming up and taking off with your expensive ball mount. Here is the locking hitch pin that I use. There's many like it, all different kinds of designs. This is one made by Bolt, we carry this and this actually uses your vehicle's ignition key to lock and unlock so you don't have to worry about carrying a spare set of keys. Now, this isn't available for every vehicle, but most of your major trucks out there are gonna have this option. I do like this a lot and I recommend it, but again, there's plenty of locking options out there. The main goal is just to provide security of our ball mount. So there is one downside to this ball mount here and it's pretty minor, but that's that it's heavy and that's how it maintains the weight capacities that it does. As we said, these are rated up to 32K for select models. So in order to retain that high of a capacity, you do have to add a lot of metal, which is going to add weight to it. Now, granted this isn't something that most people are gonna constantly be removing and installing on their vehicle, but if for one reason or another, you do need to do that, I know a lotta people just leave these on at all times, even when they're not towing, it is gonna be a little bit hard to get on and off just due to the sheer weight of them. This is actually the 2-inch version with the 5-inch drop. So this is kind of like the bread and butter of their line here. This is gonna be the most standard and common one and even this one is still pretty heavy. Go ahead and remove it here. It's not unmanageable for one person by any means, but it does have some weight to it. So just take that into consideration for your purchase and that's gonna do it today for our look at the line of Gen-Y adjustable ball mounts with stacked receivers..

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (104 Customer Reviews)

Insert this heavy-duty mount into your 2" hitch to get 3 stacked 2" receivers for mounting the included 2" ball, 2-5/16" ball, or other hitch-mounted accessory.

by:

Super heavy duty! BUT, there is a little play in the ball attachment and receiver that slides back and forth? Really doesn’t sound good when pulling my 14,800lb boat! Makes you feel a little uneasy!




by:

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!




by:

Free shipping and the product arrived in two days! Excellent customer service and a very heavy duty hitch.

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.

The customer service was above and beyond what we expected to get. The hitch arrived much sooner and was just what we needed to pull our enclosed trailer behind our motorhome. It has not given one ounce of trouble, very sturdy and well pleased with etrailer.com. Highly recommend.

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.

Use it all the time, love being able to adjust the height. This hitch is very heavy, but that's because it's heavy duty! I use it on 3/4 ton pickup.

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


Beefy; never a shadow of a doubt that it will hold up to anything I tow with it. Solid fit with zero wobble. It is heavy, but that is a positive to me as I prefer strength above all else for a purpose such as this.

Ive had this hitch for a year now and I am very happy with the craftsmanship. I work in the masonry business and have allot of very heavy loads and it is holding up excellent.

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

  • Recommended Adapter With 500 Pound Capacity for Additional Clearance Carrying Mobility Scooter
    In order to mount your carrier and mobility scooter on your trailer hitch I recommend using the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-513. This fits a 2" receiver and gives you 2" stacked receivers for multiple height options. It has a maximum 5" rise/drop and a tongue weight capacity of 1,500 lbs which will be more than enough for your needs. I have attached some video reviews as well as a link to all of our Gen-Y ball stacked receivers if you need a different rise/drop....

  • Highest Tongue Weight Rating for 2 Dual Hitch Adapter
    The dual hitch adapters aren't really made for heavy duty towing which is why they don't carry very high tongue weight ratings. The Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver part # MPG544 for example only has a 400 lb tongue weight rating. The Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver for Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers part # D210 maintains a higher capacity at 750 lbs. If you have the extra funds, you can obtain much higher capacities with the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mounts like part #...

  • Recommended Way To Extend Weight Distribution Hitch So That Tailgate Clears Trailer Tongue Jack
    I recommend swapping out the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Shank # BXW4002 for a Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank # EQ90-02-4600. The Equal-i-zer shank is 5" longer giving you enough to clear your tailgate. With using with a weight distribution hitch the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-513 would create another point where there is going to be play in the receiver tube. While this will extend your hitch out it is not the route I would recommend going.
