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 2,000-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.

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!

Writing this before I have actually used the hitch. So far I'm very impressed. The hitch arrived here in west central Ohio in 2 days with the free standard shipping'
Extremely well packaged. The Hitch is built like a tank I expect to have this for as long as I have an RV

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


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.

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
Curt Pintle Hook - Bolt On - 20,000 lbs
$79.48

  • Will Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-516 Fit Factory Hitch on 2010 Toyota Sequoia
    Yes, the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-516 that you referenced will fit and work great with the factory 2 inch receiver on your 2010 Toyota Sequoia. This heavy-duty ball mount features up to a 12-1/2 inch drop or rise and a gross towing weight capacity of 12,000 pounds when used with the 2 inch ball. This capacity increases to 16,000 pounds when using the 2-5/16 inch ball but you will still need to adhere to the limits of your Sequoia if it is lower. The towing capacity of your...

  • Recommended Adjustable Drop Hitch for 2015 Ram 2500 with 8 Inch Lift and 37 Inch Tires
    Yes. The Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-516 will mount directly into the receiver on your 2015 Ram 2500 Diesel and allow the coupler on your trailer to connect to the ball mount. This is a great solution for lifted trucks or trucks with larger tires, like yours, and the Gen-Y hitches are extremely durable. This is the option I would absolutely recommend for this setup.

  • 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. This comes with the adjustability to adjust the hitch ball down to give you the driveway...

  • Dual Hitch Solution for Tow Bar and Bike Rack with Rise for Tow Bar Hitch Opening
    The best solution for needing a rise for the tow bar and then a hitch opening above that would be a Gen-Y solution like the part # 325-GH-525 like you mentioned which has several hitch openings that could all be in a rise position. This one has 5 stacked openings whereas the part # 325-GH-516 has 6 if you needed more.

    For your Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 12-1/2" Drop - 16K Item # 325-GH-516 the etrailer Anti-Rattle Hitch Stabilizer for 2" Hitches - Vinyl Coated Steel Item # e99007 will work for the connection point from your vehicle's hitch and if you place it sideways will be able to latch onto any of the receivers in the # 325-GH-516.

  • Locking Hitch Pin Needed for a Gen-Y Hitch Being Used with a 2017 Toyota Tundra
    You most likely have a Gen-Y hitch that is compatible with a 2" receiver like part # 325-GH-516. This means that you would need to use the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-096 which is comparable to the locking hitch pin # WS05. If you happen to be using a Gen-Y hitch that fits a 2-1/2" receiver, like part # 325-GH-624, then the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-099 that comes with it is comparable to the locking hitch pin # BD580412.

  • High/Low Tow Bar Adapter for 13 inch Height Difference Between Motorhome and Jeep Base Plate
    The largest rise/drop we offer is the # RM-048-10 from Roadmaster that offers a 10-1/4 inch rise or drop. You want to be within 3 inches plus or minus of level, and this adapter would put you within that range. If you click the provided link, you can see a product description video featuring the adapter. This being said, the Gen-Y adjustable ball mount you have looked at # 325-GH-516 would also work well for you, and would allow you to get a bit closer to level.

  • Weight Distribution System Drop Recommendation for Lifted Trucks
    For your weight distribution shank I recommend the Reese Weight Dist Shank - Drop Only - 11" Long # RP3344. This shank will give you a 7-5/8" drop using a trunnion-bar system or a 8-5/8" drop using a round bar system. If you have a round bar system, you can get a deeper drop of up to 9-1/2 inches with the Curt # C17124. These are the deepest drop shanks we carry based on the bar style of your system. If you need a deeper drop then you will need to use the Gen-Y stackable ball mount...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 13 Inch Drop on a 2017 Ram
    If you are measuring from the inside top of the receiver to the bottom of your coupler then you have a 13 inch drop. I've attached an article to help, but have also included a photo for fast reference. That is a significant drop, so you can use one of the following: Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 12-1/2" Drop - 10K # 325-GH-316 Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 12-1/2" Drop - 16K # 325-GH-516 Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 15" Drop...
