Tow & Stow™ - Receiver Hitch
Frequently Asked Questions
For most vehicles, 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 Model 8 or Model 10. The following diagram depicts how to calculate what is commonly referred to as 'drop'.
The Tow & Stow ball assembly is finished with nickel-plated chrome.
Although we do manufacture the Tow & Stow with a hollow receiver tube (similar to that used to make most receivers on vehicles), this does not affect the rating or strength of the product. The Tow & Stow is tested by an accredited testing facility to the SAE standard J684. By using high strength tube, we are able to create better weld penetration which produces a stronger and more consistent joint. As a bonus, the hitch is considerably lighter, making it more user friendly and helping with shipping charges.
