The New 2 1/2" Tow & Stow

The New 2 1/2" Tow & Stow

  • With truck manufactures constantly upping the load and towing ratings of their trucks and now producing more and more trucks with 2 1/2” hitch receivers, we’ve been getting a steady stream of customers asking when we’ll be coming out with a 2 ½” Tow & Stow. One of the challenges of producing a hitch with the larger shank, is making sure it can withstand the additional stresses from the heavier loads, and we wanted to make sure we got it right before introducing a new version of our Tow & Stow.

     

    After a lengthy design and development process to make sure the finished product lives up to B&W’s standards, we’re happy to announce that a 2 ½” Tow & Stow will be available starting sometime in February 2016.
