How to Choose the Correct Tow and Stow Ball Mount to Pull a Boat Trailer


What model Tow and Stow do you recommend for pulling a Triton 21 TRX with a Ford F-150?


Expert Reply:

In order to choose the correct ball mount, you will need to take a couple quick measurements first. With your F-150 parked on level ground, measure from the top of the receiver opening to the ground; your Triton 21 should also be parked on level ground, and you'll need to measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. If the height of your hitch is greater you'll need a Tow and Stow with the appropriate drop. Should the height of your coupler be greater, you will need a Tow and Stow with the right amount of rise. I've added a help article on ball mounts for you to take a look at which you may find useful.

Two other things you'll need to know are the size of your receiver opening as well as the weight capacity you need. For example, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10049B is for 2" hitches, offers a drop up to 7" or rise up to 7-1/2", and has a capacity of 3,500 lbs with the 1-7/8" ball, 7,500 lbs with the 2" ball or 10,000 lbs with the 2-5/16" ball.

There is also the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10035B, which also fits 2" hitches, offers a drop of up to 3" and a rise of up to 3-1/2" with a 1-7/8" ball that can tow up to 3,500 lbs or a 2" ball that can tow up to 7,000 lbs.
