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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Headache Rack to Fit with a Tool Box on a 2015 Ford F-150
  • I may have an option for you but the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Headache Rack # MT70234 is not designed to fit with a truck bed tool box. The brackets that mount to the bed rails will interfere with the box. If you find that it will work it does not include any additional hardware other than what comes with it to mount it to your truck's bed rails. The best headache rack that fits with a tool box on your 2015 Ford F-150 is the Aries # AA1110102. The brackets are much smaller and take up much...

  • 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...

  • Recommendation for Easily Moving a Pop Up Camper Into a Storage Unit
  • If your Coleman Sedona PopUp weighs around 2,000 lbs (I think that is what was indicated), the MaxxTow Trailer Dolly # MT70225 would work well to move it around as long as the ground is level. Moving 2,000 lbs around with a pallet jack isn't that difficult so you should have no problem. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well. The other solution I would recommend would be the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 which has a crank on it that works as an integrated...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • MaxxTow Ladder Rack # MT70423 Height Above Bed Rails
  • The upright bar height of the MaxxTow Rack part # MT70423 that you referenced is 26 inches. That is the distance from the mount to the top of the bars. I confirmed this with my contact at MaxxTow.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Looking for Winch to Raise and Lower Purple Martin Bird House
  • What you are needing is a hand winch that will ratchet in both directions like the Fulton # FT11000301. The winch is not compatible with steel cable, but it can be used with 5/16 diameter rope up to 30 feet long. If you would prefer a winch that could be used with cable, I would recommend the Dutton-Lainson # DL15303, which is also a two way ratcheting winch. The spool of the winch can accommodate up to 50 feet of 1/4 inch cable. The MaxxTow # MT70176 will only ratchet in one direction,...

  • Ladder Rack Compatible with TruXedo Lo Pro QT Tonneau Cover for 2014 Ford F-150
  • I have a solution for you, but the MaxxHaul Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70386 will not work with the TruXedo Lo Pro QT # TX598101. Since the ladder rack will extend down into the truck bed where the tonneau cover is installed, these components would occupy the same space and not install correctly. For a ladder rack that will work with the Lo Pro QT # TX598101, you will want a ladder rack that installs only on top of the truck bed sides. I recommend the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder...

  • Availability of Hi-Low Adapter to Lower Receiver Height of Motorhome
  • If you're needing to lower the receiver for a tow bar that you're using to flat tow a vehicle, Roadmaster offers several High-Low Hitch Adapters that would get your towbar within the recommended 3 inches of level. For a 10 inch drop use part # RM-048-10. For an 8 inch drop use # RM-048-8, for a 6 inch drop use # RM-048-6, for a 2 inch drop use # RM-048-4 and for a 2 inch drop use # RM-048-2. These adapters shouldn't be used for towing a trailer. For a bike rack or a cargo carrier, Blue...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • The MaxxTow Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Load Stops - Aluminum - 400 lbs # MT70423 is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Ford F-150 Super Crew with 5-1/2 foot bed. You can purchase additional load stops like the Load Stops for Thule Ladder Rack and Aeroblade Load Bars - Qty 4 # 753-3761 or the Aluminum Load Stops for TracRac Ladder Rack Crossbars - Qty 2 # TA25110. You can also use T-bar eyelets like # TA44700, but you may also want to consider using a carrier for your kayaks. We have a customer...

  • 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...

  • Will Two 12-3/8 Inch Tall Batteries Fit in a Trailer A-Frame Tongue Mounted Toolbox
  • On the inside the MaxxTow toolbox # MT80350 is 11 inches tall so 12-3/8 inch tall batteries in boxes will not fit. A better option is # MT80349 which is 16 inches tall. I have linked a video review for you.

  • 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...
