Tow up to 12,000 lbs safely and conveniently, and get up to a 6-1/4" drop or a 7-7/8" rise with this MaxxTow ball mount system. Turn the ball mount over to select a drop or a rise. After the ball mount has been installed on your vehicle, just pull the included pins to adjust the ball platform up or down or to flip the ball platform between the 2" or 2-5/16" hitch balls as needed. Replace the pins, and you're ready to tow. The ball mount fits 2" square trailer hitches and is a great solution for those who tow several different trailers.


Keeping your trailer level with your tow vehicle makes it easier and safer to tow. If your trailer is more than 2" nose up, it may sway while being towed - increasing tire wear and making your ride less comfortable. Lots of sway makes it harder to drive your vehicle. If the trailer is more than 2" nose down, the load may put too much weight on the hitch and tow vehicle, exceeding the weight limit for both. This puts stress on the connection between your trailer and hitch and may not leave enough weight on your front wheels, affecting your ability to steer and brake properly. An adjustable ball mount system makes it easy to keep whatever you tow as level as possible.

Great product but will not work with a v-lock or slide lock trailer...the ones with the v shape..once it's hooked up and you turn it will bend the receiver or pins pretty bad due to distance between trailer and receiver arm Just have to ensure you use it on the rounded tongue connections on a trailer.

The trailer hitch receiver, mount and ball assembly were all received in good condition and earlier than anticipated. There are multiple videos available on line for the installation so the directions were not critical for installing and this review. Every item in the package is heavy duty & of high quality and installed easily and exactly as expected. The assembly will be used to tow a 400 lb 5 x 7 trailer. I cannot comment on towing performance yet but I expect it will be very satisfactory. I am very satisfied and would use etrailer again for future purchases.

Excellent! No problems, no negative issues or concerns.

Very strong great welds holds everything hooked to it. Two small issues. Chrome ball assembly rusts uncontrollably. Ball is located too close to upright u channel with adjustment holes. Had to grind back edge of upright to allow coupler to seat and rotate. One thousand towing miles and no signs of wear.


Comments
Ball chrome is almost totally gone even with monthly efforts to polish. May have to send it out and have it powdercoated.

I bought this hitch for a 1/2 ton dodge. I tow a boat and a couple flat bed trailers. Adjustable yes, fast and easy to adjust, marked for different heights for the trailers. Really is a good hitch, pretty cheap for what you get. Is built more than strong enough. Easy to install. I build alot of stuff in my shop. welders, torch, bad saws, cutters, quit alot of stuff. Darn good hitch. I'm glad I bought it. Serves me well.

Very satisfied. Product finish has held up well. Used to tow 8000 lb. boat and trailer 2800 miles round trip Price was good as well. Was very easy to make adjustments for use on other trailers. No complaints about this purchase.

Am generally happy with it but still think it it is rusting more than it should. I would suggest that if a person buys this it should pay be stored inside vehicle during days of non use.

Used the hitch drop formula: truck hitch receptacle height minus the level trailer tongue height and it resulted in the trailer front being 1.5 inches too low. This adjustable ball mount allowed me to make an easy adjustment to correct the formula error. Didn't have to return the ball mount to adjust for the error like those that aren't adjustable. The price was much better than the competition for a 12k pound hitch.

This adjustable trailer hitch is solid and heavy duty. I haven't used it yet on a trailer, but it does appear to have a little slop in the reversible ball. The cotter pins seem way too long for this hitch, but are of good quality. I would definitely recommend this to others.

Heavy duty, very nice. Pulled a 2500 Diesel in a 24' cargo trailer 700+ miles without any problems. Other products similar to this I've used in the past had what felt like alot of play between the ball and pins but this product had very little to no play which made for a smooth less tense haul.

Pulls straight down the road. Hangs a little low for my truck (stock height 3500 dually) but allows my to match trailer height with any of my trailers, and is rated quite high for towing. Heavy and solid. The wobble shown in the video exists in mine, but I dont hear it rattle when on the road, so it doesnt bother me. Easy to change positions. The only draw back I have had was when reversing over a curb it drops low enough to gouge the ground and fills the channel with dirt. Should not be a problem on a lifted truck though, and is not a problem as long as I stay on the road.


Comments
Its been great for my Chevy 3500 van and my Yukon XL as well. No problems with either, on cross country tows, up to 10k, put at least 3k-4k miles on it, no issues so far.

My first ball mount purchase, ever. Knew I wanted high-capacity, an affordable price, and -since I would be towing with differing loads in both tow vehicle (a van) and trailer- I required an adjustable height range. This MaxxTow ball mount met all three of these needs. I have since received my purchase from etrailer.com (in good time!) and found the item to be as described and pictured. NOTE: some customer comments have mentioned loose tolerances on these ball mounts. I understand that possibility, though the product I received has only slight slack in all of the areas including the receiver/shaft fit, the fore/aft play amongst the adjusting pins, and the side-to-side movement between the balls and mounting rack it sits between. It may be that these tolerances have improved due to manufacturing tweaks; it may be that my being a novice tower leaves me more easily pleased. I'll simply end with this: since I've only used this item once thusfar (for 5,500 lbs. over 20 miles), so long as the steel and welds hold up (as they appear that they would), this product seems a fine thing to have for many uses. I am glad that I found and bought it -especially through etrailer.com. Thanks, guys.


Comments
I have since used this product coupled to my Draw-Tite Ultra Frame 10K cap.1.5k tongue to pull my Car-Hauler-to-Toy-Hauler Camper conversion 650 miles. With my little car within, it was a full 10,000 lb. package. Worked as it should. Nice and level tow. No issues found.

MaxxTow Adjustable 2 ball mt hitch. First, let me say that the ball hit and the hitch locks were delayed in shipping due to production delays. I want to thank Pat C. in customer service for providing me a running account of when the product was made and shipped right up to delivery of the hitch. Thank you Pat. Now for the hitch, the pricing of the hitch is very fair. Compared to comparable hitches, I saved at least 50$ on the hitch with no apparent downgrade in the equipment. So I got the hitch well-packaged. Everything was included that i had ordered. Next was the product to truck install. That went easy. Fit and finish was good for a Chinese made product and they certainly didn't skimp on the steel. The ball mount looks classy and it looks like it will be rugged and dependable. I guess we won't know until it is put to the test. That will be happening soon. I expect it will perform as other reviewers had indicated.

I know it was cheap, but chrome came off ball after light use with light duty trailer. 2-5/16 side does not allow for use with some trailer trailer tongues because of lack of clearance



- MT70380

Have used this for a year. Works well in my situation. If you have a high trailer mount this is the ticket to get it down to a more level plane, or if you have multiple types of trailers, this should accommodate most of them, if not all. Should also work well for low trailer hook ups as all you have to do is turn it over. Strong and sturdy enough to survive the harshest treatment.


Comments
Its solid steel. Only thing that could possibly happen to it is Superman bending it up, which of course has not happened.

Great all around hitch. I bought this hitch for occasional use and so I wouldn’t have to worry about having the right size ball for the job at hand. Since then I’ve used it for the last year in everything from small equipment hauling, to 20” campers, to loaded up car haulers (flatbed). I’ve put about 3k miles of hailing on the hitch so far and even with leaving it on my truck about 6 months out of the year and not being great about the occasional oiled wipe down, I have minimal surface rust and it still looks great. It still gets 5 stars because it’s by far the best hitch you can get for the money. The only improvement I would make is to fine-tune the size of the ball/hitch pin-hole. There is just enough of a size difference between the pins and the holes they slide in to that there is some play in the actual ball. Other than that it’s a fantastic hitch.



- MT70380
by:

Product shipped and delivered within 2 days of my order. Really good value compared to the pricier hitches out there. Pins are a little long, but that’s an easy gripe to overcome. It’s definitely a heavy duty hitch with good strong welds. Easily handled my 10k cargo trailer.


Comments
Still using it and it hasn’t failed at all! Great product and will definitely be one of the last hitches I ever buy.

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • How To Tow A Trailer Without Measuring for Rise/Drop
    The only true way to determine what ball mount you need is to measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube on the vehicle and then subtract the difference from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on the trailer while level. However, if you do not have access to the trailer then the best option for you is an adjustable ball mount as this will not only more than likely allow you to tow your boat trailer level without measuring beforehand but will also accommodate...

  • Why Do Adjustable Ball Mounts Have Slight Play Between Ball Platform and Shank Parts
    The 2-sided hitch ball part of the MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # MT70380 connects to the shank portion with a set of two pins and clips. These pins are sized to easily fit the holes in the shank. In other words they are intentionally just a little smaller in diameter than the holes in the shank to ensure you do not have any problems adjusting its height. The small amount of "slack" or "play" between these two parts does not affect stability, safety or capacity for this item and truly...

    Since there are 2 places of movement (at the hitch and where the ball attaches) on ball mount # MT70380 it can have more rattle than more fixed ball mounts when not towing.

  • What Hitch Ball Size is Needed to Tow a Hi-Lo Towrite 22T Trailer
    The hitch ball size of your Hi-Low Towrite 22T depends on the model year. In the 90's it appears they used to use 2 inch hitch balls and then moved to 2-5/16 inches.

If you want to be sure you have the correct hitch ball on hand, I recommend the MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 6-1/4" Drop, 7-7/8" Rise - 12K # MT70380 which has both hitch ball sizes and will give you adjustability to tow level.

They should be more than willing to take the measurement as it will allow you to buy it from them and drive it home. A longer shot might be to find a Forest River RV forum and ask around in there. Your truck sits up pretty high so an adjustable ball mount with a decent amount of drop like the Rapid Hitch part # AM3296 would most likely do the trick. It can do a drop of up to 8 inches...

  • Is there a Lot of Movement, Play, Slop when Using MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount MT70380
    The slight movement of the ball portion of adjustable ball mount # MT70380 would not be nearly enough to take the trailer off level while towing.

  • What is the Pin Size for the Ball Part of MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # MT70380
    Yes, the pins that hold the ball part of the MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # MT70380 are 5/8" diameter pins. You can put a lock on in place of a regular pin but you would only need 1. If you get 2 you can get some that are keyed alike such as # e98881 and have one for the ball portion and one can be used as a hitch lock.

  • Recommended Ball Mount with Drop for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    We do not currently have any hitch adapters available that will expand the 2 inch receiver on your truck to a 2-1/2 inch receiver for use with your existing ball mount. Your best option might be to simply replace your ball mount with one that is compatible with 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. I have attached a link that will take you to our available selection of ball mounts, as well as an article that explains how to choose the best one for towing your trailer level. I recommend looking...

  • Could the MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount MT70380 be Used to Reduce Sway
    If your trailer isn't setting level the part # MT70380 can help reduce the sway by allowing you to select the correct height that will allow the trailer to sit level. You cannot use a sway control tab with this though. That being said the best way to prevent trailer sway is proper trailer loading. You need to ensure you have between 10 and 15 percent of the total trailer weight as tongue weight to prevent sway.
