Product Details


The pin hole location on different makes of receivers can vary. The two holes in the Tow & Stow shank offer some adaptability. Under normal circumstances, it’s best to have the shank slid as far into the receiver as possible, both from a strength standpoint and because it makes theft of the hitch assembly more difficult, providing a locking pin is used in the receiver and shank.

No. Sway-bar systems, along with weight distribution systems, utilize specialized attachment pieces to connect to the hitch receiver that are not compatible with the Tow & Stow.

With your trailer loaded and hitched up, pull just your vehicle onto a commecial scale, making sure the trailer is not on the scale. Weigh your vehicle with the trailer attached and note that weight.

Next, unhook the trailer and jack up the trailer until there is no trailer weight on the hitch. Make sure the trailer jack is not on the scale. Record that weight of only the truck. This is your Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW).

Now subtract your GVW from the weight with the trailer attached. This will give you your Vertical Tow Weight

For most vehicles, the Model 6 is the appropriate Tow & Stow hitch. However, if you have a vehicle with oversized tires, a lift kit, or a trailer that is not at the same relative height as your receiver, you may need a Model 8 or Model 10. The following diagram depicts how to calculate what is commonly referred to as 'drop.'
