Expert Answers about Maxxtow

  • Recommended Ladder Rack Compatible With Deck Rail System On 2017 Toyota Tacoma
  • MaxxTow Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Load Stops - Aluminum - 400 lbs # MT70423 will fit ONLY if you don't have the Deck Rail System. There is not an adapter kit available for this product to be used with the Deck Rail System. If you have the Deck Rail System, I recommend the Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 800 lbs # 59799 as well as the Eye Bolt Tie-Down Kit for Rola Haul-Your-Might Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Steel - Qty 4 # 59796 or the Load Stops for Rola Haul-Your-Might...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Anti-Rattle Device that Can be Used when Towing a Trailer
  • The MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70283 has not been tested or rated for use when towing a trailer. Because of that it should only be used for hitch mounted accessories such as bike racks or cargo carriers. So basically since they have not tested it for towing they can't rate it for towing and that is where that note on the product page came from. For an anti-rattle device that you can tow with and costs about the same as the MaxxTow I recommend # 63232. This will work with a ball mount...

  • Capacity Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 Explained
  • The capacities of the Detail K2 Carrier part # K2TMC201 vary depending on the tongue weight capacity of the hitch it is installed in. They rate it like this to help you prevent overloading the hitch. Also you have to keep in mind that a lower rated hitch is going to allow a bit more flex which would possibly put more strain on the rack as well. I attached a chart that shows how the numbers relate to each other. What you need to do is find out the tongue weight capacity of your hitch...

  • Adjustable 3-Ball Trailer Hitch Ball Mount
  • So are you looking for everything except for the shank in MaxxTow adjustable ball mount # MT70197? If you want just a tri-ball part we have # C45800. The receiver part it fits into is # C45802. The combined cost of those parts though is about the same as the MaxxTow complete assembly. I have also included a link to all of the tri-ball options we have. The most cost effective is # MT70270 but it is not adjustable.

  • Trailer-Tongue-Mounted Cargo Tray for A-Frame Trailer
  • We do offer trailer-mounted cargo control items such as tool boxes and racks for propane tanks, shown on the linked page, and we also have a tray from Stromberg Carlson, their Trailer Tray Cargo Carrier # CC-255, that mounts to an a-frame trailer tongue. This cargo tray measures 20 x 32-inches and offers a weight capacity of 300-lbs. A nice benefit of this elevated design is that you can install this tray along with other trailer-mounted cargo items, depending on their size. We also offer...

  • Can MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70258 be Used with a Travel Trailer
  • The MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70258 is an accessory anti-rattle device so provided you are using it on the back of your travel trailer in a hitch mounted accessory, such as a cargo carrier, you will be good to go. But it is not rated for use on the tow vehicle for towing a trailer. If that is what you are looking for I recommend the similar Pro Series device # PS63091. I have linked videos of both devices for you.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Folding Cargo Carrier With Ramp
  • The Flip-up Stinger for Scooter Carriers RFUB has a measurement from center of hitch pin to upright when folded of 6 inches. This will most likely be too close because the part you reference is similar to our # MT70275 carrier that measures 7 inches tall. This also would require some customization and you'd need to be careful with steel and aluminum contact points if the powder coat or paint were to fail. That stinger is intended to be a replacement option for the Trailer Hitch Mounted...

  • Recommended Wheel Chocks for a 6 x 12 Enclosed Single Axle Trailer
  • It really just depends on what you are looking for in wheel chocks. For some basic wheel chocks that get the job done you can use the MaxxTow Wheel Chock # MT70073. It comes in a quantity of 1 so you will need to order 2 per tire. Since it is solid rubber it will do a great job on concrete plus it has received great reviews from our customers. If you are wanting to ensure that you are level 100% of the time, even when you park elsewhere, then you may want to use the Hopkins RV Leveling...

  • A-Frame Trailer Mounted Toolbox with Lid that Opens a Full 90 Degrees
  • In the video for toolbox # MT80349 it looks like it opens to 90 degrees but it is sort of an optical illusion. Seen from the side you can see that it does not open a full 90 degrees. DeeZee box # DZ91717P does open a full 90 degrees. I have included a link to this box for you. It is a little different, it is made of poly-plastic and not metal. MaxxTow box # MT80350, which is a little larger, does open to 90 degrees. I have linked a video of it as well. We also have RC toolbox...

  • Does Light Bar Mounting Bracket # MT70453 Attach to Headache Rack
  • The Light Bar Mounting Bracket # MT70453 that you referenced is designed for attaching to MaxxTow Headache Racks like the # MT70234. If that's what you mean by back rack this would be what you need.

  • Comparing MaxxTow Anti Rattle Devices MT70283 and MT70258
  • They both work great. The difference is the part # MT70258 does use the two bolts, has a galvanized finish, and has a longer sleeve. The part # MT70283 uses 4 bolts, is powdercoated and does not have a sleeve at all basically. If it were me I would go with the 2 bolt version as it works great, will install a bit quicker, and because it is galvanized.

  • Weight of MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket
  • The MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # MT70115 has a shipping weight of 27 lbs so if you subtract for packaging it checks in at just about 25 lbs. Since you are trying to maximize your cargo use, another option is the Stallion Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 288-09200 which is only a pound less at 24 lbs but has a bit more room for cargo, with inside dimensions measuring 2-1/2" longer and 2-3/4" wider.

  • Dolly Recommendation for Moving Utility Trailer In and Out of Garage
  • The MaxxTow dolly # MT70225 is designed for much lighter trailer than what you have. For something similar that would make getting the trailer in and out very easy you'd want the part # TVXL2 which has a crank handle that turns the dolly wheel so that you aren't having to drag the trailer around. I attached a review video for this for you to check too.

  • Trailer Mover for Use with 16-Foot 3500-lb Airstream Sport Travel Trailer
  • The trailer mover I suggest for your 3500-lb Airstream Sport travel trailer is the Trailer Valet 5X model # STC-V211. This 2-speed chain-drive trailer mover simply clamps on to either side of your A-frame (no welding and no drilling) and it can handle the loaded trailer tongue weight up to 500-lbs. It features an automatic brake for your safety. You can hand-crank the Valet or use the cordless drill adapter # TVDA to give you a really easy method for maneuvering the trailer into tight...

  • Recommended Trailer Jack with Lower Retracted Height for Landscaping Trailer
  • I looked through our selection trying to find a similar jack to the MaxxTow, part # MT70149, with a retracted height less than 14-3/4 inches and found a couple of good options for you. You didn't say exactly what height you need, however part # MJ-1200B has a retracted height of 12-1/2 inches. The weight capacity is slightly less, at 1,200 pounds but that's probably still plenty for your trailer. It also offers 11 inches of travel which is a 1/2 inch less than the MaxxTow. A second...

  • Truck Bed Crane to Load Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch into Chevrolet Truck
  • The MaxxTow Hydraulic Crane # MT70238 will be able to get a fifth wheel hitch into your truck bed but it's likely not going to be able to get it into position. The boom is 43 inches long and you'll be reaching from the side of your truck's tailgate. Whatever kind of crane you use the bracket # DM6100 would make a great addition to it. The bracket fits into the jaws of the hitch and then it would be hooked to the crane.

  • Headache Rack Recommendation for Use with Toolbox That Sits on Bed Rails
  • The L-brackets that are used on the lower portion of the MaxxTow headache rack part # MT70234 would make it harder to install a crossover style of tool box that sits on top of the rails but I attached a picture of a guy who was able to do it for you to check out. The Aries rack part # AA111000 would be an easier fit due to the design of the lower rail and how it attaches to the bed rails.

  • How Much Space is Needed Between Toolbox MT80350 and Trailer for the Lid Clearance
  • For MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox # MT80350 I estimate at least 2 inches will suffice so that the lid can open. There are other toolboxes like this with a little different design such as # MT80349 which has a lid that opens in its own footprint (for lack of a better term). I have linked a video of this toolbox for you.

  • Trailer Dolly Options for 7x14 ft Enclosed Trailer
  • The Maxxtow dolly part # MT70881 that you referenced should work well based on the size of the trailer but you would want to make sure the tongue weight is below 600 lbs. Other option is the Trailer Valet Jack part # STC-V211 which has a crank handle built into it that allows you to easily move the trailer around.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device to Use for Trailer Towing
  • I do have a solution for you, however the MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70258 referenced in your question is not recommended for use when towing a trailer. This particular device is designed to be used with hitch-mounted accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. A better option will be with the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 as long as the 2 inch hitch receiver on your Silverado has a ring or collar around it. This will simply slide over the shank of your ball mount and the U-bolt...

  • Cargo Weight Capacity of Hitch Carrier Used on Honda CR-V
  • It sounds like you have a lot of cargo to transport in and on your Honda CR-V. Hitch carriers like the 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 are a great way to move heavy cargo items that might be too difficult to get up on your roof. Most vehicle roofs are limited to a weight rating of 165-lbs or less and this is only a fraction of the weight that can be carried on a hitch carrier. But these hitch carriers are not intended to hold a large rooftop cargo box. The issue is that such a...

  • How to Use Motorcycle Carrier While Flat Towing Vehicle Behind RV
  • The only option we have available that might allow you to mount a motorcycle carrier while also flat towing a vehicle behind your Winnebago is with the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-4 that has a 4 inch rise/drop or # RM-077-2 that has a 2-1/4 inch rise/drop. This adapter is designed specifically for flat towing and the top receiver can be used with a hitch-mounted accessory like a bike carrier. A potential issue you will have is just remaining under the capacity of...

  • 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...

  • Compatibility of Bike Rack Receiver Mount while Towing Pop-Up Camper
  • The MaxxTow Ball Mount w/ 2" Accessory Receiver - 2" Hitches - 2-1/4" Drop - 5,000 lbs # MT70066 will work as long as you have 6 inches of clearance for the hitch pin hole of your receiver to the edge of the bumper. The Curt # D210 is rated for up to 7,500 lbs and is slightly shorter. You will need 5 inches of clearance between the center of the hitch pin hole and the outermost edge of the bumper to not make contract with the top receiver tube. Your other options are the Stromberg...

  • Manual Dolly Recommendation for Moving Trailer that Weighs 1,500 lb
  • We have one trailer dolly that will work with a total trailer weight of 1,500 lbs. For that you'd want the RackEm dolly part # RA20 which has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs which would easily be compatible with a 1,500 lb trailer like what you have. The # MT70881 only is compatible with total trailer weights of up to 600 lb.

  • Best Way to Determine Coupler Height on Trailer That is About to be Purchased
  • Best option would be to contact the dealer selling the trailer and ask them to get that figure for you. 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...

  • Will Four 10.25Lx7.08Wx10.82H Batteries Fit in the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox MT80349
  • I do have a solution for you, but the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Trailer Tongue Toolbox w/ Latch, part # MT80349, will not be able to fit your four 10.25Lx7.08Wx10.82H size batteries in it. Since the MaxxTow toolbox has a height of 16 inches, an inside measurement of 14 inches for the width, an inside length of 33 inches at the longer end, and an inside length of 20-3/4 inches at the shorter end (see attached picture). You will only be able to fit 3 of your batteries along the longer end of it....
