Expert Answers about Detail K2

  • Recommended Trailer for Towing with a 2017 Subaru Outback Long Distances
  • Your 2017 Subaru Outback has a maximum towing capacity or 2700 lbs. For a trailer that will meet your towing needs and hold up to long distances, I recommend the Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer # K2MMT5X7. This trailer has the payload capacity of 1640 lbs, but has the GVWR of 2,090 lbs. It has 12 inch wheels, leaf spring suspension, a tilt bed, and has a 2 inch coupler. I've attached some videos to help further.

  • Snow Plow and Mount Recommendation for 1994 Jeep Wrangler 4WD
  • I'd recommend going with a plow mount for your vehicle over a hitch style mount. On some hitch mount setups we've seen the hitch not be as durable as the mounts that mount to the frame and are specifically for plows so that's what I feel is the better solution. The Detail K2 Storm Plow part # K2AVAL8422 that you referenced is a great choice, and then for mounts custom fit to your 1994 Jeep Wrangler we have the part # K284115 which would work great.

  • How to Replace the Winch Strap of a K2 Snow Plow
  • We don't have a video that details how to replace the strap of your K2 Winch like part # K2RASP8219, but I did speak to my contact at K2 and he gave me a brief description of the process. On the winch there is a u-bolt that needs to get removed after feeding the strap all the way out. He said this is pretty obvious and easy to do. Next, there is a pin holding the strap to the spool. On the side of the winch there are a couple of holes. You will need to line the pin up with one of the...

  • Recommended Snow Plow for 2004 Dodge Ram
  • One of the most popular snow plows we carry is the Detail K2 Rampage II # K2RAMP8219. It measures 82 inches wide and 19 inches tall and can be used at 5 different angles. It's also electric and includes an in-cab switch and wireless remote to control it. To install the Rampage II onto your 2004 Dodge Ram you will need the mounting brackets. If your truck is a Ram 1500 you'll need part # K284311, and you'll need part # K284312 if it's a 2500 or 3500.

  • Replacement Cross-Member Plow Attachment for Detail K2 Snowplows
  • The Replacement Cross Member Plow Attachment for Detail K2 Snowplows # K2CRM3312 is what is used to connect to the custom fit mounting brackets. These brackets are used instead of a front mounted hitch receiver. I pulled the part from our warehouse and it is a long u-shaped piece made of 2x2 tubing with 2 holes for mounting and 2 tabs along the outer curve. I've attached a photo of a similar tab to help. The bar itself is just over 3-1/2 feet long and has just the two tabs and then...

  • Scooter Carrier for the Back of an RV and a Burgman 400 Scooter
  • I cannot recommend the use of the K2 motorcycle carrier on the back of an RV or converted Sprinter van in this case. The issue is that this carrier, and most others, are not rated for the additional stress and movement associated with being at the back of such a vehicle. But there is an option that is rated for use behind an RV. It is Ultra-Fab carrier # UF48-979033. It is rated for 500 pounds which is very close to the weight you mentioned at 485 pounds. Please verify the weight prior...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for the Back of an RV
  • I checked with K2 and you are correct the K2 Tilt Down Motorcycle Carrier part # K2TMC201 has been rated for use behind an RV or travel trailer. They offer two versions of this carrier, one without taillights like the part # B04100-1 and then one with taillights that we don't currently carry.

  • Recommended Trailer For Golf Cart Towing
  • We don't have tow bars and base plates compatible with golf carts as they are not able to be flat towed. We do however have the Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer - 7-1/2' Long - 1,640 lbs # K2MMT5X7 that I recomend for a golf cart application. This trailer is 88" long x 52" wide x 14" tall on the sides. Depending on the wheel base of your golf cart, this may be a good option for you.

  • Does a 2014 Ford F-150 Have Enough Tongue Weight Capacity to Carry a 387 Pound Motorcycle
  • Since there are different configurations of the 2014 Ford F-150, it is going to depend on the specific model. The vehicle will have its own tongue weight capacity, some models may have a higher capacity than others. So knowing that ahead of time will help since it would not help to add a hitch with a high tongue weight capacity of the vehicle cannot handle that much weight as well. So if you can get an F-150 with enough tongue weight capacity without a factory hitch then you could install...

  • Tilting Motorcycle Carrier that Works on a 24 inch Tall Trailer Hitch
  • For a hitch height of 24 inches theThe Detail K2 Carrier part # K2TMC201 that you referenced would be able to tilt down and allow your scooter to be loaded. You would not need to use a ramp. You would just need to tilt the ramp down and wheel the scooter up. I attached an install video that shows it being used on a truck hitch that would easily be over 24 inches in height.

  • Recommended Snow Plow and Mounting Brackets for 1997 Ford F-150
  • The snow plow I suggest for your 1997 Ford F-150 is the Detail K2 Rampage II # K2RAMP8219. It uses a remote controlled electric winch to adjust the plow. It also has springs so the plow will lean forward when it comes into contact with an unseen object. This will protect the plow and your truck. To mount the plow you'll need # K281512 if your truck is a 4-wheel drive model or # K281511 if it's 2-wheel drive.

  • Towing a Motorcycle and a Pop-Up Camper
  • The only motorcycle carrier we have which can be used behind a pop-up camper is the Detail K2 # K2TMC201, though in order to be used for your 450 lb motorcycle, you'd need a hitch with a tongue weight capacity of 750 lbs, and unfortunately the highest rated hitch we have that will work with a trailer is the Curt # C13701, which has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. We do not carry tow dollies for motorcycles so I am unsure of their maximum tongue weight, but if you find one...

  • Using a Ladder Rack and Toolbox at the Same Time on a 2014 Chevy Silverado
  • With the Detail K2 ladder rack installed, # K2TFR150, the clamps that hold the base to the truck bed would get in the way of a toolbox. What could possibly work for you is Rola rack # 59742. If you where to clamp the front part back behind the toolbox it could work.

  • Are Thule Easyline Trailer Kits Available?
  • We offer a few utility trailer kit options, but the Thule Easyline trailer kits were discontinued about about 10 years ago. If you are in the market for a lightweight trailer kit, I recommend looking at either the Detail K2 Mighty Utility Trailer, # K2MMT5X7, which is very similar to the older Thule Easyline trailers or the Detail K2 Multi Utility Trailer, # K2MMT4X6, which has lower sidewalls, but it includes a taller tailgate that can act as a ramp for 4 wheelers and ATVs. I've attached...

  • Is there a Ladder Rack that Will Fit a 2006 Chevy Avalanche
  • Because the Chevy Avalanche has a unique bed design, there are no ladder racks that will fit it. What you can do is add a roof rack, see link, and also use a trailer hitch, like # C13422 if needed, and use the Thule Goalpost, # TH997, and achieve the same effect. Or, you could use a universal roof rack single bar, # DTA968, the hitch, and Goalpost, which would be more economical than a complete roof rack.

  • Headache Rack for a Nissan Frontier
  • I would need to know the year and bed length/cab style of your Nissan Frontier to determine if there are any headache racks that will fit. We do have a rack that is a ladder rack and sort of a headache rack that might work for you. It is the Detail K2 Flip Rack Fold Down Ladder Rack # K2TFR150. It will fit: 2000 - 2004 Nissan Frontier 5 Foot Bed 1998 - 2004 Nissan Frontier 6 Foot Bed 2005 - 2014 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab, 5 Foot Bed without Utili-Track System 2005 - 2014 Nissan Frontier...

  • Trailer for Carrying a Motorcycle with a Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • We carry one utility trailer that may work for you. The Detail K2 Mighty Mutli Utility Trailer # K2MMT5X7 is 7-1/2 feet long and carry up to 1,640 pounds. This will be plenty for your motorcycle. However, since you said you have a Class I hitch receiver you should verify that your tow vehicle is rated for towing a trailer and how much weight it can tow. The hitch you purchased will have a rating but you are limited by the lowest rated component which is often the vehicle. If you...

  • Recommended Motorcycle Carrier for a 2002 Honda Reflex 200 Scooter that Weighs 360 Pounds Dry
  • The carrier I recommend for your Honda Reflex is the K2 tilt down hitch mounted carrier # K2TMC201 because it will work with multiple applications including scooters with rear mounted engines. You will need to ensure the tongue weight of your trailer hitch is at least 440 pounds because your scooter weighs 360 pounds dry and the actual carrier weighs around 80 pounds. Note that your scooter tires must not exceed 4-5/8 inches. I added a picture for you to view too. I also recommend you...

  • 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Options Needed To Tow a Trailer
  • On your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, if you do not already have a 4-flat trailer plug installed, then you will need to install wiring harness to allow you to use the lights on the Detail K2 trailer, # K2MMT5X7. The wiring harness that I recommend is the Tekonsha 4-Pole Flat Connector, # 118384. This harness is designed to plug in to the existing wiring of your Jeep with no cutting or splicing. The harness will allow you to run the trailer lights off your vehicle's lights. Next, you...

  • Hitch and Hitch-Mount Snow Plow for 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • The Detail K2 Avalanche Snowplow for 2-Inch Hitches # K2AVAL8219 is intended to install into a 2-inch hitch receiver. In most cases a plow will be used on a front-mounted hitch but a rear-mounted hitch can also be used. Rear-mounted 2-inch hitches are offered for your 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan, such as Draw-Tite hitch # 75658, which is the one I recommend. This hitch installs without drilling but does require a bit of fascia trimming. All required hardware is included with the hitch....

  • Spare Tire and Tire Mount for Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer
  • You can get a tire and wheel combo to use as a spare for the Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer - 7-1/2' Long - 1,640 lbs Item # K2MMT5X7. The trailer uses 5.30-12 load range C tires and a wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. So for a spare you can use # AM30850, # AM30820, or # TTWAS53012WS45HP. To mount the spare I recommend attaching Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier - Fits 4- and 5-Lug Wheels Item # FSTC1000301 to the frame at the front of the trailer.

  • What is Needed to Add Detail K2 Rampage II Snowplow to 1983 Ford F-250?
  • To install the Detail K2 Rampage II Snowplow # K2RAMP8219 you only need add Custom Mounting Brackets # K281516. The brackets install directly into your F-250's frame so as long as the lift kit on your truck does not have any interference with the frame the brackets will work. These brackets are a fit for a 1983 Ford F-250 4 wheel drive, bolting onto your truck's frame. Those are the only two items you will need to assemble and plow snow.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier for Kawasaki Ninja 650r On 2015 Mazda CX-5 650r?
  • For a hitch mounted carrier, your best bet would be the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, part # UF48-979033. The Class III hitches we offer for your CX-5 all have a 525 lb tongue weight capacity. This means that the weight of the bike plus the weight of the carrier you're using can't exceed the tongue weight capacity. With a full tank of gas, your bike weighs about 460 lbs, and when the 45 lb weight of the carrier is added, you'll be very close to that tongue weight capacity so you'll want...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for the Back of a Class A Motorhome
  • RVs and motorhomes have a very long distance between the rear axle of the vehicle and the back of the vehicle. Because of this bumps in the road are greatly exaggerated back there. So anything mounted on the hitch will experience a much harsher ride. To the point certain hitch accessories just aren't rated for it. There is a solution for you though. The Ultra Fab motorcycle carrier part # UF48-979033 is very similar to the # SC2001 and Ultra Fab has assured us that this carrier can be...

  • Carrying a Motorcycle on a 2010 Toyota 4Runner With a Factory Hitch
  • For your trip, you'll be able to carry your cycle as long as the total weight of the carrier plus cycle is less than 500 pounds. According to my research, this means that you'll want your Kawasaki KLR 650 to be hauled without fuel if possible, where it will be somewhere in the 400 pound range.This means that your carrier will have to weigh 100 pounds or less to stay safely in your tongue weight capacity while hauling the bike. One of our best options is the Detail K2 Motorcycle...

  • Trailer Hitch Mounted Carrier for a Honda PCX150 Scooter and Toyota Tacoma
  • For your Honda PCX150 scooter I recommend a carrier that has a solid track. This is because the other style will allow the scooter tires to drop into gaps and that could damage suspension or brake components. Carriers that have a solid track include the Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier - 2" Hitches - Tilting # K2TMC201. It is recommended to have a trailer hitch with a tongue weight capacity of at least 500 pounds. If your Tacoma does have a hitch with at least a 500 pound capacity then...

  • Are the Mounting Brackets and Hardware Included with the Replacement Cross Member # K2CRM3312
  • The Replacement Cross Member Plow Attachment # K2CRM3312 that you referenced does not come with the mounting brackets or hardware. It is just the cross member itself, although some packages may include the safety clips (which you should already have). For mounting hardware for your 2005 Chevrolet Silverado you will need to pick the kit that is specifically for your truck model: 1500 LD - # K283013 1500 HD - # K283011 2500 HD or 3500 - # K283011 My contact at K2 said that if you...
