Expert Answers about Maxxtow

  • 60 x 36 Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • I have a solution for you, however there isn't a carrier that's exactly what you're looking for. Instead, I recommend the similarly sized 32 x 72 Let'sGoAero Gear Cage FP6, part # H01397 and the 30 x 50 MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier, part # MT70106. The Let'sGoAero Gear Cage FP6 features a slide-out carrier that allows rear hatch access while boasting a 300 pound capacity. This solid floor carrier is appropriate for a wide range of vacation and camping uses, as well as handy around...

  • High Capacity Dual Hitch Receiver With Capacity Greater Than 5,000lbs
  • Roadmaster offers a Dual Hitch Receiver, part # RM-077-4 that has a 10,000 lb towing capacity. However, the Receiver is meant for flat towing a vehicle and carrying a hitch mounted accessory, not for towing a trailer. The top receiver has a 400 lb tongue weight capacity, which means that only 400 lbs of downward force can safely be applied to the Dual Hitch Receiver. If you're wanting to tow a trailer and carry a hitch mounted accessory at the same time, I'd recommend using the # D210...

  • How To Tow Popup Camper and Hitch Mount Bike Rack At The Same Time
  • You are correct in that it will not work for you to tow your popup camper with the # MT70070 dual hitch. In order to carry your hitch mount bike rack while towing your camper, you will want to use something like the MaxxTow Ball Mount with 2 Inch Accessory Receiver # MT70066. This will provide you with a ball mount to tow your popup and a 2 inch receiver in which to carry your bike rack. The # MT70066 will not extend out from your vehicle in the same way as the # MT70070. This means...

  • Largest Available Hitch-Mount Ramped Cargo Carrier for 2-Inch Hitch
  • A good first step in considering your best option in a ramped cargo carrier is a check of your hitch's tongue weight rating, which should be indicated on its safety/warning sticker. This is the maximum weight the hitch can support and the combined weight of the cargo carrier you choose, plus what you load on it, must be within the hitch limit. If your cargo loads will get close to the hitch's limit then a lighter weight aluminum carrier may indeed be a good choice. Here are the key stats...

  • How to Carry a Motorcycle with a Toyota RAV4
  • I have a solution for you, but most hitch mounted motorcycle carriers require a hitch with a tongue weight capacity rated 500lbs or more. After doing a little research, I found that the tongue weight capacity of the base and sport models of the RAV4 is approximately 150 lbs and the tongue weight capacity of the limited model is approximately 350 lbs. I would not recommend using any hitch mounted motorcycle carrier on a 2006 Toyota RAV4 to carry your 325 lb bike because the vehicle cannot...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Carrier For Vespa Scooter To Carry Behind 2015 Ford Edge
  • We have a couple carriers that will work for your 2015 Edge and your wife's Vespa. You mentined the weight of the Vespa at 245-lbs. Is that the weight of the scooter when it is full of fuel or with the battery included? You will want to make sure you do not exceed the capacity of the carrier or the trailer hitch on your Edge. Since the motor on the Vespa is located right in front of the rear wheel, you want to make sure you place the scooter in the carrier so that the weight is evenly...

  • Recommended Trailer Dolly for 4,500 Pound Travel Trailer
  • For a travel trailer weighing 4,500 pounds, I recommend going with the Trailer Valet XL Trailer Dolly # TVXL2. The Trailer Valet XL is going to offer much better support for the tongue weight of your trailer than a standard trailer dolly. The Trailer Valet XL has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 pounds and a gross trailer weight capacity of 10,000 pounds, so it will work well with your travel trailer. I've attached a review video of the Trailer Valet XL for you. A traditional trailer...

  • Recommended Pintle Hitch Made In the USA
  • The MaxxTow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - Bolt On - 12,000 lbs/16,000 lbs, # MT70240, is not made in the USA. We also have Curt Pintle hitches that I called to confirm are also made overseas. My recommendation for you is the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2" Hitches - 10,000 lbs/16,000 lbs, # BWTS10056. I reached out to my contact at B&W and confirmed that this part number is made in the USA...specifically in Kansas. This hitch has some really great options...

  • Removable Motorcycle Wheel Chock for Trailer Recommendation
  • I wish we had a motorcycle wheel chock that was designed to fit E-tracks but we do not. I do have a wheel chock that can be easily removed but it is not the part # MT70075. Instead you would want the Tow-Rax Removable Wheel Chock # TWSPWC. This chock can be easily removed when not in use. Check out the review video I attached.

  • Maximum Height Clearance and Weight Capacity of MaxxTow Hitch Crane # MT70238
  • You will have no problem hoisting your 130 lb generator onto the bed of your Ford F-150 with the MaxxTow Hydraulic Truck Crane # MT70238. It has 3 weight settings: 500 lbs, 750 lbs, and 1000 lbs. These settings are based on the position of the boom while being operated. After going into our warehouse to get a measurement, I found that this crane has maximum height clearance of 84 inches from the bottom of the connector chain to the ground. For your generator that is approximately 2 feet...

  • Could a Hitch Cargo Carrier be Used to Transport Propane Tanks
  • Of the solutions we can provide a cargo carrier like the MaxxTow part # MT70107 that you referenced would be an excellent choice. You will need to do some modifications to get the tanks to securely attach to the carrier in an upright position, and that is something I won't be able to tell you exactly how to do. But this carrier has a 500 lb capacity so it would work well assuming you have a hitch on your vehicle that has a tongue weight capacity that is higher than the weight of this carrier...

  • Offset Dimension for the MaxxTow Spare Tire # MT70214

  • Measuring the Bolt Pattern of a Wheel to See if it Fits MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier MT70214
  • MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier # MT70214 fits wheels with a 4 on 4 bolt pattern or 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. I have linked a help article below that shows how to measure a wheel's bolt pattern.

  • Wheel Chock and Lock for a Tandem Axle Travel Trailer
  • Wheel stops such as # UF21-001070 are designed to stop rocking back and forth just like you said. For a wheel chock I would go with # MT70073 but to keep someone from trying to steal the trailer you could use a wheel lock, # WI490 or # RA-25.

  • Can I Use a Trailer Dolly to Move a Loaded Trailer
  • The MaxxTow Trailer Dolly, part # MT70225, has a 600 lbs trailer weight capacity, meaning that as long as your trailer's weight is below 600 lbs loaded it will work fine.

  • Recommended Lightweight Hitch-Mount Wheelchair Carrier
  • MaxxTow's 30x50 Ramped Cargo Carrier # MT70100 weighs 55-lbs; this is the lightest ramped carrier we offer. If you do not need a ramp on the carrier then you do have other options that are lighter, and some of these carriers will fit both 2-inch and 1-1/4-inch hitches. For example, Curt 17x46 Cargo Carrier # C18145 weighs only 28-lbs and fits both hitch sizes. You will want to note the capacity of your trailer hitch before you select a carrier. There should be a safety sticker on...

  • Replacement Tires for Trailer Dolly w/ 4.10/3.50-6 Tire
  • Take a look at the Replacement Wheel for MaxxTow Trailer Dolly, # MT70225-1. This replacement wheel has a 1 inch wheel hub bore and a 4.10/3.50-6 tire. This is our only option for that size of tire.

  • Recommended Trailer Dolly for Moving Pop-Up Camper Trailer into Garage
  • If you can't use your tow vehicle to move your pop-up camper into your garage then your best option is a trailer dolly like the MaxxTow # MT70225. This cost-effective dolly features pneumatic (inflatable) tires and a 1-7/8-inch hitch ball. It can handle a trailer with a weight as high as 600-lbs. You might want to have some wheel chocks like # MT70072, and a competent helper, for safety when moving the trailer especially if it will be moved on an incline.

  • Recommended Ramps for Loading a Snow Blower
  • If the snow blower isn't self-propelled, the # MT70144 ramps you mentioned wouldn't be the best choice. It would be pretty difficult to push a snow blower up a ramp that doesn't have a solid surface. Something like the Erickson folding ramps, part # EM07464-2 would work much better for you, as it would be much easier to push a snow blower up the heavy duty grating that makes up the ramp surface. I really like the way the ramps fold up for easy storage. The ramps feature integrated handles...

  • Trailer Dolly Capable of Moving Small 1900 lb Travel Trailer
  • The MaxxTow # MT70225 trailer dolly has a 600 lb capacity. According to MaxxTow, the total weight of the trailer cannot exceed the 600 lb capacity, so your trailer would be too heavy. Rack'em makes a # RA20 dolly that can handle trailers with tongue weights up to 500 lbs. Since yours would be between 200-300 lbs, this particular dolly would work great for you. As you can see by checking out the customer reviews, the Rack'em dolly is highly rated by our customers.

  • Quick Release Motorcycle Wheel Chock Recommendation
  • I have a solution for you, but the Wheel Chock part # MT70271 is designed for permanent install. Instead you might be interested in the # TWSPWC which has slotted install holes so that you can slide the chock backwards and remove it easily when needed. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Motorcycle Carrier for the Mini Bike CT200U
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier part # MT70101 will not work with your Mini Bike CT200U because the tires are too large to fit between the tracks. For a hitch mounted motorcycle carrier that will work I recommend using the Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier with Long Ramp and Aluminum Track part # SMC600 as this carrier will work with motorcycle tires up to 8" wide. This motorcycle carrier fits vechiles with a 2" receiver opening and is capable of carrying a motorcycle...

  • 2-Inch Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier to Transport Permobil C300 Power Chair That Weighs 350-lbs
  • I contacted Permobil to find out the weight of their C300 power chair and it weighs 350-lbs including the batteries. We do indeed offer several ramped carriers that will have the capacity for this chair and that also will fit a 2-inch hitch. Since I do not know your vehicle or hitch I suggest you first take a look at the vehicle owner's manual for any guidance regarding its tongue weight (TW) capacity. (TW is the downward force on the vehicle frame from whatever is attached to it.) Your...

  • Is there a Motorcycle Wheel Chock that Does not Require Drilling Into the Floor for Installation
  • If you had MaxxTow wheel chock # MT70271 up against a wall then it would stay in place when putting the bike in it but it might pull away when removing the bike. Otherwise for it or any chock to stay in place it would have to be secured to the floor.

  • Wheel Chock Recommendation for Harley Davidson Street Glide with 5-1/2 in Wide Tire
  • I have a better solution for you that I can guarantee will work. Check out the MaxxTow Adjustable Wheel Chock # MT70075. This can fit tires up to 5-1/2 inches wide and would work well for you so we would recommend it for you. I attached a picture we got from a customer that shows it being used on a similar Harley as well. Even though it's only 1/2 inch difference I can't recommend the # MT70271.

  • Towing a Vehicle on a Tow Dolly Behind a Motor Home and Carrying Bikes at the Same Time
  • Curt offers dual hitch receiver # D-192 but it does not have a drop. It is rated for 3,500 pounds gross towing weight and 350 pounds tongue weight. But using it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. I would normally recommend going with # D210 but it only has a 2-1/4 inch drop. Another option is to use a ball mount with 8 inch drop # AMSC8 with a bike carrier such as # S64664. But this may or may not work depending on how far it is from the face of the...

  • Replacement Jack Recommendation for Replacing Shelby 5764A Jack
  • Your Shelby jack that you are looking to replace has a 1,200 lb capacity. The MaxxTow Jack part # MT70149 would be a great replacement jack that has even more capacity at 1,500 lbs. I attached a review video for this jack for you to check out as well.

  • Installation Requirements for MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 on 2013 Silverado
  • Installation of the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 on your 2013 Silverado will require you to drill a few holes in your bed rails. If your truck has stake pockets you will need to drill 1 hole on each bed rail; if it does not have stake pockets you will need to drill 2 holes on each bed rail. Mounting hardware is included. The base of the universal-fit MaxxTow rack is adjustable in width from 64- to 74-inches and it is fabricated from 2-inch square steel tubing. This rack...

  • Do Trailer Jacks with Two Wheels Make it Easier to Maneuver a Jack on Concrete
  • Having 2 wheels will provide more surface area/contact with the ground. This could actually make it more difficult to maneuver compared to a single wheel. But two wheels are better than one when not on pavement. A single wheel tends to dig into dirt or gravel easier. A Fulton jack such as # FXPD15L is going to be the better jack compared to the MaxxTow line of jacks. I do recommend going with a Fulton. For a single wheel version use # FXP15L.
