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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier for a Yamaha TW200
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier part # MT70101 will actually be prefect for your Yamaha TW200 for two reasons. The first reason I feel this is the best carrier for you would be its track width. This carrier will work perfectly with your 7" wide tire which is close to the limit as far as hitch mounted motorcycle carriers go. The next reason I feel this carrier will be good for you is its weight which will lead into my next segue. The carrier has a shipping weight of around...

  • Inside Dimensions of MaxxTow # MT70260 Hitch Mounted Wheelchair Carrier
  • The inside dimensions of the MaxxTow # MT70260 30 x 50 Wheelchair Carrier are 48 inches long by 28 inches wide by 5 inches deep. You can see this in the photo I've edited for you. These and the other relevant dimensions are also listed on the product description page which I've also linked for you. If your snow blower is just a bit under 28 inches wide, it should just fit. You can see a product demonstration video by clicking the provided link.

  • 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...

  • Can a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Ball be Mounted on the MaxxTow Trailer Dolly
  • You could put a 2 inch ball on in place of the 1-7/8 inch ball on the MaxxTow dolly # MT70225. However, it is not necessary. For a dolly, you do not have to have the same size ball as what the coupler on the trailer requires. That is why all the dollies that we carry have a 1-7/8 inch ball. It is the smallest size and will fit all couplers that take a 1-7/8 inch or larger ball. I can personally attest to this. Just yesterday I used this exact dolly to move a trailer outside that had...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Availability of Hitch-Mount Ramped Scooter Carrier With 60-Inch Platform
  • The MaxxTow 30x50 Ramped Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 that you referenced has a platform that measures 30- x 50-inches, and its ramp measures 60-inches long. This and all other ramped carriers we offer are viewable using the link to your right. This 50-inch platform length is the longest we have available. This carrier's 60-inch ramp is also the longest ramp on any of these items. Please note that these carriers vary considerably in their weight capacities, ranging from 230- to 500-lbs....

  • Recommended Wheelchair Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch on 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
  • You can use an adapter like the Brophy # HTAD in order to use 2 inch hitch-mounted accessories with the 1-1/4 inch receiver on your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer. An important factor to keep in mind when using this or any other hitch adapter is that it will reduce the tongue weight capacity by 50%. This means that if the trailer hitch on your Mountaineer has a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds, it will be reduced to 100 pounds when using the adapter. The MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier...

  • To install a 60 inch tool box like the DeeZee Red Label 5th Wheel Toolbox - Wide, Utility Chest Style - Aluminum - 14.9 Cu Ft - Black # DZ8560WB to a receiver hitch on the back of your Class B Winnebago Aspect, I recommend using the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901. This will carry the toolbox as well as the golf clubs behind your RV. If you want to use a Cargo Carrier as the base, you can use the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 500 lbs...

  • Motorcycle Wheel Chock in Toy Hauler Recommendation Where Under Trailer Access is Limited
  • You could use the Tow-Rax Removable Wheel Chock # TWSPWC. You would not need to access the bottom of your trailer to install the install hardware. All you would need to do is drill hole for the anchors of the wheel chock and then you would be able to use the install bolts that thread into the anchors to secure the # TWSPWC. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.
