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 3 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.


pintle hitch

Also included is a pintle lock, which can be inserted into the receiver directly above the ball mount to create a pintle hitch for hooking up a trailer with a lunette ring. Unlike other adjustable pintle hooks on the market, there are no nuts and bolts to remove and retorque when you change the positioning of this hitch. Just move the ball mount and pintle lock up or down to get the proper height and secure them in place with the included pins.

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

Hi everyone. Aiden here with the trailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at some Gen-Y ball mounts for your two and a half inch hitches. Now this is going to come in a variety of different sizes. We've got a few of them here to choose from right now so we'll be showing you those and checking them out. The main difference between these is gonna be the variations in the drop height, but aside from that, they're gonna work with the same hitches and have the same weight capacities.

Let's check 'em out. So right away I do wanna point out the range of sizes we're working with. This is going to be the six inch drop variant we have in our hitch right now, and then over to the side is the 12 inch drop. These are the smallest and the biggest sizes in this hitch capacity. So if you need other sizes there, there's gonna be a few in between.

And there's also going to be this offset design which also features a six inch drop, but has one of these stacked receiver tubes up above where it attaches. So if you need a slight rise on occasion, this could be the way to go. That being said, these all have the capability to just completely remove from the hitch, flip upside down, and in the case of this 12 inch one, also give you up to a 12 inch rise. Now that's really gonna depend on your application, your truck and trailer combination what you're gonna need. But just know that if you need a little bit of both and you don't always want to be flipping it inside out from your hitch, then you can go with this option that can give you a little bit of that offset on either side.

Now that we've taken a look at some of the different sizing options, let's take a look at the things that are gonna be the same between all those options like the ball options you have here. There's the two and five sixteenth inch ball up top that can give you up to a 21,000 pound gross trailer weight rating with a 3,000 pound max tongue weight rating. Now if you need to, you can flip that around to a two inch ball that can give you a slightly lower weight capacity. That's gonna be 16,000 pounds of gross trailer weight rating with a max tongue weight of 1,500 pounds. Something else you get here is a pintle lock attachment.

So I've got it pinned in the storage position. I can unpin it after I drop my lunette ring trailer on top and then re-secure it just like we would with the ball below. What that lets us do is hook up to a lunette ring trailer. It's gonna afford the same weight capacities as the two and five sixteenth and the ball will allow, so that's good to know and it's really nice that right out of the box it's gonna work with a variety of different trailers. One thing I do wanna point out is that the ease of using the pins and clips even with large gloves on right now is actually really nice. Gen-Y does a good job at adding the small bend to their clips that actually makes it very easy to use and put on or take off. So that's just one of the nice touches that includes with this. Just something to note though is that it doesn't include a hitch pin, so you will need to pick up one from either etrailer or Gen-Y yourself. We've got all those options here on our site and I would definitely recommend a locking hitch pin for that. So I do wanna point out some measurements with these ball mounts. Again, they're gonna be pretty much the same for all of these different options. And one thing I'd wanna point out is on the shank of every ball mount, there's going to give you two hitch pin holes to choose from. Those are spaced an inch apart so if you need to get a little extra clearance from your vehicle and your trailer, you can put it on this outer one or slide it in a little bit more for this one. We're gonna be taking our measurements from the outer hole here, that gives us a little more clearance so just keep that in mind as we're measuring these. If you want to know the measurements from the other hole, just subtract an inch. Now from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball, that's going to be 13 and one quarter of an inch. That'll let us know how far our trailer is whenever we're hooking up to it. And then from that same point to the bare outside edge of the ball, that's gonna be 14 and a half inches. That lets us know how far this is sticking out from the vehicle when it's in our hitch. With the ball mount in the drop position though we can reduce some of that space it takes out and actually flip the ball around, having to put it sideways, re-pin it like that and then obviously the pintle hook attachment could flip around or just slide back into itself and take up a lot less room sticking out from your hitch. In this position, it only sticks out 10 and one quarter of an inch from the center of the hitch pin hole to the face of the ball mount right here, so it does take up a lot less room that way. The pintle lock and the ball are gonna have this matte black powder coat on top of it and then it's all going to be a steel construction. Now the ball mount itself with the stacked receivers, that's going to be a zinc primer base with this textured powder coat finish on top. That textured finish does give it a cool look but it's also going to be really resistant to rust and corrosion. Just feeling it and working with it it does feel a bit more durable in that standard powder coat so I do expect that it'll hold up pretty well to the elements over time. And hooking up with this ball mount is really much like any other. The height adjustment lets us get this matched up to our trailer so we can really match it to our truck and trailer combination and be hauling everything level. Even though we're not utilizing the pintle lock right now, it's stored down underneath, so it's locked away and ready to go for next time. If I needed to use that bottom slot, I just moved that pintle lock up to a different slot, and then all that you have to do is just hook up to your trailer. (metal clanging) And when it comes to adjustable ball mounts there's tons of options out there, ranging from the really entry level options all the way up to some very premium options. I think this one from Gen-Y lands itself in a really nice spot where you've got excellent construction and very good ease of use. I like the stacked receiver design because one, it makes adjustment very easy, but two, it's very modular in a sense. If for whatever reason the ball where our trailer's hooking up gets chewed up and starts to rust and corrode over time, then we can replace just that part. We can take it out, slide a new one right in and it's good to go very quickly. So things are replaceable, upgradeable and you can use it for a long time. Not to mention you've got a ton of different size options so you can get this fit to your truck and trailer combination pretty easily with all the different drop height variations. That'll do it for our look at this adjustable ball mounts for your two and a half inch hitches from Gen-Y. Thanks for watching.

Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2-1/2" Hitch - 6" Drop/Rise - 21K - 325-GH-623

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (234 Customer Reviews)

Insert this heavy-duty mount into your 2-1/2" hitch to get 3 stacked 2-1/2" receivers for mounting the included 2" ball, 2-5/16" ball, pintle hook, or other hitch-mounted accessory.

by:

It's a great hitch. Fits our needs. Only negative thing I can say is the paint/coating rubbed off almost immediately after putting it to use so there's a rust ring around it where it meets the receiver.



by:

No doubt it's "mega duty". Thing weighs 54 lbs. I don't know if its worth the money but I'd say its probably the best hitch you could get!



by:

Bought this product from etrailer and was amazed at the high level of customer service and knowledge. The product arrived ahead of schedule and was packaged well. This product is made well and I’m glad it’s a product of the USA.



by:

Extremely high quality, performs as expected and looks good.



by:

Did great hauling a 20k lb boat. Like the adjustability of it and different ball sizes.



by:

Great hitch, have never had any issue with it



by:

This has been a great heavy duty hitch for our company. It is on our truck year-round and is still in good condition (lots of road salt where we are). My only complaint is that if you use it as a pintle, the ring of the pintle has to be against the ball or else the latch won't slide all the way back into position. Worst case scenario is that you have to pull your truck forward an inch and set the parking brake so that it doesn't role back. Really not that big of a deal when you consider the versatility of this hitch.

It wasn't that big of a deal and I ended up buying a few more of these.



by:

There really isn't a more durable, heavy duty trailer hitch that I've encountered. The set-screws that keep the ball/slide from rattling works perfect. I didn't think it would, but it's great. No rattling whatsoever. The ONLY negative which isn't a product negative, is it's heavy. You won't be just tossing this into the back of your truck or shop. It's a beast, but well worth the money if you've got several trailers that require different hitch heights and sizes.



by:

Haven't had a chance to use it yet but IT IS RUGGED! What a nice hitch. It is heavy but I plan on separating the parts as I put it away and reassemble as needed the next use. I needed a hitch that had height adjustability and was rated for more than 10K lbs. Most hitches I looked at were rated for 10K, some at 14K but no adjustability. And required multiple hitches. I haul trailers with 2", 2 5/16" and pintles and they are all used at different heights. I was tired of two hitches being in the way. Now I have one that will do everything.



by:

After a year of hard use, 10 cross country trips from coast to coast towing everything from 40ft TT's to 16ft cargo haulers I am highly impressed and glad I purchased this hitch. I have had no failure from sheering pins, no sag or drooping at all. Handle the weight like a champ.



by:

After two failed attempts and three weeks lost trying to buy same hitch on [online] n, same hitch from etrailer was ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday. Same hitch same price. The status updates were clear, uo to minute and never once saw a "lost in transit" once. `The hitch itself was a snug fit on my ram 2500 and I guess that's not a bad thing but its in and I have no doubts it will do the job.



by:

We've bought several of the GenY receivers. We pull equipment trailers everyday with our 1-ton work trucks and need heavy duty receivers and these are versatile. I specially like the option of using this receiver for a pintle hitch. They hold up well and because they're so valuable to us, we use a locking pin so they stay on our trucks not someone else's!



by:

I was looking at all the hitches on the market and after some comparisons I decided to go with Gen-Y. The reason being is their versatility 4in1 hitch. After receiving the hitch I can say it is very heavy duty and heavy!



by:

Very well built and will stand up too whatever I hook to it.



by:

Quick shipping and excellent product



by:

Great product. Extremely durable & perfect to pull our heavy trailers at the farm and our rv. My husband was very pleased with the trailer hitch.



by:

Great product , fast shipping. I do have a 7 trailers and this is a hitch I was looking for



by:

Great ship time! Site is easy to navigate and checkout is easy. Gen Y hitch is 57lbs and worth the money!



by:

Heavy duty should meet my needs for hitching bumper pull trailers I use.



by:

Great heavy duty hitch



by:

Excellent craftsmanship, highly recommend this product.



by:

Fast shipping! Ordered Saturday and received on Tuesday at noon. Heavier than expected and appears indestructible. Should be perfect for heavy hauling.



by:

This is high quality

  • Recommended Gen-Y Hitch for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 and Trailer with DO45 Coupling
    It looks like the pin part of the DO45 (which takes the place of a standard hitch ball) has a shank with a 1-1/4" diameter so I recommend using the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45340 with a Gen-Y hitch as this ball mount has up to a 17K towing capacity. For the Gen-Y hitch it all depends on the height of the trailer and if your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 is stock height or not. If your Chevy is stock height then you should be just fine with the Gen-Y Shank # 325-GH-303 which gives...

  • What is the Distance From Hitch Pin Hole to End of Receiver on Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver
    The distance from the hitch pin hole on the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # 391TES317 is 2-1/2". Once installed on your 2018 Tesla Model 3 it will stick out about 3-3/4" from the bottom edge of your rear bumper. You are also correct, using an extension typically reduces your capacity by 50%. In order to avoid this problem I recommend using the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2-1/2" Hitch - 6" Drop/Rise - 21K # 325-GH-623. The Gen-Y stacked receiver design does...

  • Hitch Adapter For Using 3 Inch Hitch Accessory in a 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
    Due to the high capacity of the 3 inch receiver, an adapter that would allow you to use a 3 inch hitch accessory in a 2-1/2 inch receiver hitch doesn't exist. By necessity, an adapter that lets you use a higher rated accessory in a lower rated hitch would need to extend out, away from the hitch. The leverage that this would apply with the accessory in place with the weight bearing down on it would damage the hitch and/or the hitch attachment points to the vehicle. If you have two different...

  • Should All The Pins and Clips On The B&W Tow & Stow 2.5" Hitch Be Replaced With Locking Pins?
    I recommend using the InfiniteRule Locking Pins # 34061775-D with your B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS20049B. This will allow you to secure all parts of the hitch. The ball portion of your hitch could still be removed by removing the included pin and the snap ring which holds the ball in the adjustable mount. Just as well as the vertical adjustment pins could be pulled out and the track pins removed.

  • Recommended Hitch Reducer from 2-1/2 Inch Hitch to 2 Inch with 5 or 6 Inch Drop for 2016 Ram 2500
    A high-low adapter like the Roadmaster High Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2-1/2" Hitches - 4" Rise/Drop - 10K GTW # RM-058-4 is designed for use when flat towing which is pulling a vehicle behind a motorhome. The reason an adapter is needed is because tow bars that connect the vehicles need to be within 3 inches of level for safety. I've attached an article to assist. It sounds like you are looking for something for the back of your truck that allows for a drop for towing or accessories....

  • Adjustable 3 Ball Mount With Pintle Hitch For a 2-1/2" Receiver
    The Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-623 will have everything you are looking for when you add the 1-7/8" Bolt-On Hitch Ball # 325-GH-090 to the included 2 ball mount. This fits your 2-1/2" receiver and will have all 3 ball sizes and a pintle hook. It is capable of a 6" drop or 6" rise with its stacked receivers.
