Expert Answers about Maxxtow

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Transporting a 30 inch Wide Snowblower
  • You would need something wider, check out the 32x48 Pro Series Steel Solo Cargo Carrier # PS10401-10402. This carrier is slightly wider to fit your 30 inch wide snow blower and has a loading ramp. This carrier has a floor dimension of 31-3/4 inches wide by 47-3/4 inches long which you would want to compare to the dimensions of your snow blower. Check out the review video I attached for this product. The useable dimensions of the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 is only 28...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can I Use a Trailer Dolly to Move a Loaded Trailer
  • The MaxxTow Trailer Dolly, part # MT70225, has a 600 lbs tongue weight capacity, meaning that as long as your trailer's tongue weight is below 600 lbs loaded it will work fine. A typical trailer's tongue weight will be 10-15-percent of its gross weight. As a point of reference I have attached a FAQ article covering how to determine trailer tongue weight.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Cargo Carrier with Ramp Recommendation for a Transporting a Snowblower
  • For a great cargo carrier with ramp that would work well for you without breaking the bank I would recommend the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106. The internal dimensions of the carrier are 28 inches by 48 inches. So to clear your handles that measure 54 inches long you will need to load the carrier handle first so that they clear the ramp when it's folded up. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. You will want to be sure that the hitch on your 2014 Toyota...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • No-Drill Truck Bed Ladder Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Chevy Silverado
  • For a similar ladder rack that has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Chevy Silverado that doesn't require drilling to install check out the # 59742. This rack uses clamps to attach the rack to your bed rails. I attached an install video plus installation instructions for you to check out as well.

  • Can a High/Low Adapter be Used to Tow Pintle Hook Trailer With Standard 2-Inch Hitch
  • Since the height of your pintle-equipped military trailer is so much greater than the height of the hitch on your Honda Pilot (possibly as much as 2 feet) I am not sure there is any way to keep the trailer level when hitched. We do not offer an adapter that can make up this substantial height difference. I suggest you check your Honda Pilot owners manual to confirm the vehicle tow rating. Tow ratings can vary by model year and based on the specific equipment set in your Pilot. You want...

  • 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...

  • Can MaxxTow Off-Road Light Bar Be Mounted On Rear Bumper To Help When Backing Up
  • The MaxxTow Off-Road Light Bar # MT80630 is designed for off-road use. The light bar does come with the wiring and a switch. Since it is intended to be used for seeing what is ahead I recommend checking with the authorities to see if there is any reason you cannot use it as a back up light as you want.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for Top of Utility Trailer
  • Yes, the width of the Maxxtow Ladder Rack part # MT70386 that you referenced is adjustable from 52-71 inches so it would work well for you on your utility trailer that is 60 inches apart.

  • 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 tongue weight (TW) as high as 600-lbs. Your pop-up camper TW should be a small fraction of that weight. You might want to have some wheel chocks like # MT70072, and a competent helper, for safety when moving the trailer...

  • Hand Winch Recommendation to Tilt a Folding Motorcycle Trailer For Storage in the Garage
  • The MaxxTow Positive Lock hand winch that you referenced # MT70176 will work for your application. This winch is rated for up to 1,000 pounds capacity. So it would work for your 230 pound folding motorcycle trailer. Please be aware that this is a one way ratcheting system. You can place the handle in free spool mode to release the strap, but if you would like to use the ratcheting system you will have to turn the handle. For your reference this handle is 9 inches from the attachment...

  • Using MaxxTow Trailer Dolly # MT70225 to Move Pop-Up Camper
  • Moving trailers for short distances is exactly what a trailer dolly like the # MT70225 was designed for. As long as the trailer tongue weight does not exceed 600 lbs, the # MT70225 would be an excellent choice for moving your trailer.

  • How to Attach MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox # MT80349 to Trailer Tongue
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox w/ Latch # MT80349 referenced in your question will simply mount directly onto your trailer tongue. The hardware is not included, and there are no pre-drilled mounting holes on the unit, so it can install however needed for your specific application using screws or bolts. You will just need to drill your own mounting holes. The overall dimensions of this toolbox are 33-3/4 inches long x 14-1/4 inches wide x 16-1/4 inches tall. I have attached...

  • Kayak Carrier Solution for MaxxTow Truck Bed Ladder Rack MT70423
  • Since the MaxxTow ladder rack has T-slots on the top of it the best solution for a kayak carrier is one that attaches to the bars with those T-slots. For that we have the Inno Surfboard, SUP, Kayak, and Canoe Carrier # INXA445 which will allow you to secure the kayaks directly to them.

  • 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 Ball Mount and Hitch Ball for European Trailers
  • Thank you for your service. I would be happy to make some recommendations for you. An American style ball mount will work fine when we pair it with a 50mm Hitch Ball on a local trailer in Germany as long as you have a U.S. style trailer hitch on your vehicle with a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver. The look is different, but the function is the same. I'd suggest the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount, # MT70067. This will give you up to a 10 inch drop or a 8 inch rise to allow you to...
