Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know which Tow & Stow hitch model I should purchase?

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'.

How do I know which Tow & Stow hitch model I should purchase?
What type of plating is on the Tow & Stow ball assembly?

The Tow & Stow ball assembly is finished with nickel-plated chrome.

Why does the Tow & Stow have a hollow receiver tube now?

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.

Can I use a sway-bar with the Tow & Stow?

No.

Can I turn the Tow & Stow over in the receiver?

Yes.  If you need rise to better meet the coupler on your trailer, then you can simply turn the hitch upside down in the receiver and use the height adjustment to give you the needed rise.

Customer Reviews

Super easy to use and tough as nails.
By Spence Johnson from Huntsville, AL on April 16, 2014

I have owned a Tow & Stow Hitch for almost ten years and it is without a doubt to best towing investment I've made. The convenience and versatility are great and worth every penny for the quality and durability. It only took a year to badger my department director into buying one for our Facilities truck and it only took one use and he is a believer.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
The best built
By Tom Bailey from Aransas Pass Tx on March 25, 2014

This is the greatest hitch I have ever bought. I have a few different trailers and they all take a different size ball. I will never buy any other brand of hitch again. I find it simple to use and stows out of the way so neither the Wife or I hit our shins on it.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
If one of my hitches ever grows legs and walks off I will buy another one in a heart beat.

Worth its weight in gold

I am a B&W dealer as well as own a full machine, fabrication shop and hot shot service. I do not sell anything I do not believe in and the Tow and Stow is fantastic! I own a Tow and Stow for each one of my tow vehicles and it makes my life easy. I recommend this to everyone I know, not because I am a dealer, but because I use them as well.

love hate relationship

Really awesome design! The only downfall would be that with the price being $250+tx it doesn't come with locks with the removable pins. I would be disappointed if someone was attempting to steal this and realize the design and then just take my pins.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

We would like to let you know what we were thinking. We have creatively designed the Tow & Stow so that when it is installed on a vehicle, the two pieces (pin block and swing arm) cannot come apart.  Therefore a single lock, placed through the receiver, will keep the hitch from being stolen. 

Locking each of the three hardware pins that allow adjustability of the hitch would really cut down on the ease of use.  We share your frustration that occasionally someone strips the hardware off of the hitch that was made especially for the Tow & Stow and has no other use for it. 

Need More Tube Length From Last Hole To Drop
By Dean Gadberry from Mayville, ND on September 3, 2013

I bought a new trailer and I needed a new ball hitch that was easy to adjust. I found that the adjustment was easy but it does not work with my towtector. There is not enough distance between the last hole and the drop plate to fit the towtector. If there was 1/2" more room then the hitch would work the way I need it to.
No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.

Unfortunately our hitches won't work with every aftermarket device.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.  In this instance, Towtector sells a longer-than-standard, shank ball mount on their website that might work better.  Our aim with the Tow & Stow is to stay out of the way of shins and garage doors. We wouldn't want to change the hole location so it protrudes further out from the bumper.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

If you tow you need this hitch!!!

I have been using my Tow & Stow hitch for a year now and wouldn't trade it for anything! It's so easy to switch balls when changing trailers (I have six) and I don't have to carry multiple hitches any more. Changing hitch height is a breeze to accommodate each trailer and load requirement. When running empty, I just fold the hitch back under the bumper out of the way and no more bruised knees or shins It's a quality product (made in America) that I would recommend to any one that tows a trailer.
