Gone are the days I need to carry three different hitches with different sized balls on them. Gone are the days when I, or others, walked around the back of my truck and cracked their shin on a protruding trailer hitch. I keep this folded up in front of the drop where it's not going to catch anyone by surprise. When I'm ready to use it, I simply pull two pins out which allows it to drop free and rotate out. I choose the height I need and install the two pins/clips. To rotate the balls, again simply pull the third pin and rotate to desired size. It was more than I wanted to spend at the time but since I'm glad I spent the money.


Quality Hitch. Love having all 3 ball sizes on one adjustable hitch.


Very impressed with it. It is a really solid hitch Probably overkill for my F150 and 10' utility trailer, but rather have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.


Super convenient and well worth the money. All 3 of my trailers have a different ball size, and this is a breeze compared to constantly swapping tow hitches. Keep the pins well lubricated, and they slide well maintain their appearance.


This has been one of the best hitches that I have owned. It is adjustable to change between my Jeep Wrangler and my Ford F-150 Limited. Both have different tow heights and tow needs based on trailer type and payload capacity. This hitch has worked great for those purposes!


Super hitch. Best money spent for towing so far. Prompt shipping and a pleasure to buy from this vendor! Thrilled with my experience and will look here for all my trailer and towing needs.


The last time I had to change out a hitch was over a year ago. It's been a great buy. The initial price shock has been long forgotten as it performs exactly as you need it to. I will always have one of these on any truck I own.


This hitch setup is top notch! Very heavy duty. I went with this setup over cheaper similar options because those other 3 piece options that are similar just seemed clunky and held together by a lot pins with lose tolerances (IE recipe for wiggling and rattling), not to mention multiple stress points. This B&W unit is sleek and solid, no wiggling around, and tucks up out of the way nicely when not in use...which is more handy than you would think!

We are using this on a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 Big Horn with factory air suspension.

Still very pleased with all of the products you mentioned and have absolutely no complaints. Thank you


I should not be rating this item. I am disappointed! I was led to believe that this would work on my 2022 GMC Elevation when my tailgate was down. It does not, in fact, it messed up my back up camera. I have never used it. I removed it and now it's in my garage. Is there something that you all can do?

Jenny N.


I am not sure as to what may have happened however I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. The ball mount that will work with the tail gate would be part # BW49FR.


Delivered as scheduled. Product and box were in great condition.





Tough as nails! Quiet, too!


Installation went well but with mine being an underslung trailer there were some challenges getting it set up. B&W had me text them photos and got an engineer on the phone with me. I can't say enough about their service, they are awesome. He looked at my picture and made some other suggestions to make the hitch work better with my trailer.

I took the trailer out for a test run for about 20 miles. We had very little wind, but the hitch overall performed really well. It was one hand on the steering wheel for me; a very enjoyable ride. I was able to pull into a gas station and make a few fine adjustments in the span of 5 minutes which is what I really love. With my other old-style hitch when I stopped to make adjustments, it took 30 minutes. This is a very well-made product, and I'm looking forward to camping with it soon! I'm running an F150 with a 2015 Jayco 29QBS.


Very well built product. Customer service has been excellent!!!!!


Most versatile hitch I have ever had. 10 of 10 recommend!


Great. I switch from utility trailer to boat trailer to cargo hauler with just a quick rotate. If you work with all these ball sizes regularly, it’s fabulous. It is expensive though, so if I only rarely switched trailers, I’d just get 2 standard hitches. After a year, I do notice some squeal on turns, so some maintenance is probably in order.


This is a quality built product you can count on for all your towing needs.
Plus, proudly built in the USA.



After one year of use the B and W Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - BWTS10048B has worked great with no issues at all.

@David Awesome, great to hear that!


Quick and easy!


Super fast shipping. Opened the box and noticed this was a great piece. Very well made. Looks awesome on the truck. Very convenient that it folds under and out if the way. . No shin buster here. Very easy to use.
I haven't t towed with it yet. But I'm sure it'll be great.


Great service a usual.


It has worked well!


This is an incredible hitch. Super strong construction. Just what I needed for towing multiple sized trailers.


Easy installation and switching ball size is a breeze… stowing it is easy as well


Great Product, excellent service, free delivery and track ability of your order


This is the handiest hitch I’ve ever owned. It is completely out of the way when stowed. No more bruised shins! It also looks great and is nice to have all three balls on one hitch. I did add a noise reduction kit but honestly I don’t know if it was needed, I didn’t try it without it. I do recommend a locking pin system to keep it on your truck, protect your equipment.


Though I can’t write a review, I know nothing about trailer hitches, I can say this....I ordered this for my son for Christmas. He said all he wanted for Christmas was a B & W hitch. So, I had my husband help me to pick the right one for his needs. The hitch arrived almost immediately. Shipping was fast and really great. I am sure my son will be thrilled Christmas morning! Although, I am glad he was not home when it arrived since it was shipped in it’s own box, and the contents completely exposed. Might be good to let customers know that in case they are ordering as a gift.



AAAAAMAAAAZING! Strong, well made, functional to a fault! No multiple hitches! One hitch, and get gone!!!

  • Which B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount Do I Need for a 2006 Ford F-250
    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS30048B is designed for a 3" receiver tube opening therefore if this is what you have on your 2006 Ford F-250 then yes, it will work for you. However, if I had to guess I would say that you have a 2" receiver tube opening on your F-250 therefore for a similar same ball mount with a 2" receiver tube opening you will need the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount part # BWTS10048B which offers a 5" drop and has the three hitch balls you are looking for (1-7/8",...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Luxury Edition
    The Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport have different frames for the 2011 model year. The sub-model within those specifications do not change the trailer hitch receiver fit, so the Curt # 13456 will fit your 2011 Land Rover Sport Luxury Edition. The luxury interior and features will not change the hitch fit. If you have a full size spare stored under the vehicle, it will not fit with this hitch installed. For your wiring I recommend the Upgraded Circuit Protected ModuLite...

  • Choosing the Correct B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount for 2015 GMC 2500HD with 20 Inch Rims
    For safe and comfortable towing, a trailer should always be as level as possible. In order to determine which B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount will work best on your 2015 GMC 2500HD with 20 inch rims, you will need to measure your hitch height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening as well as the coupler height of the trailer that you intend to tow. The difference between the measurements will determine the rise or drop that is needed for your setup. I have attached an article which...

  • B and W Tow N Stow Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2017 GMC Sierra 1500
    That would depend on the height of the trailers you plan to tow, but unless you plan to tow something unusually small and low the 5 inch drop B and W Tow n Stow part # BWTS10048B would be what I think would be the best match for your truck. But if you plan to tow a lower trailer the 7 inch drop part # BWTS10049B would be the better option. I attached a help article on how to pick out the best ball mount for a truck for you to check out as well.

  • Best B&W Tow & Stow for a 2018 Ford F-350
    In order to find out how much of a drop you need to look for in a ball mount, you will need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside edge on your trailer hitch and then from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler on your trailer while level. If you subtract the trailer height measurement from the hitch that will give you the amount of drop you need to look for in a ball mount. I recommend doing this for both trailers. Please note that the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount...

  • B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount Fit for 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 with GM MultiPro Tailgate
    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B is for standard tailgate systems. Since your 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 has the MultiPro Tailgate you'll want to use the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - MultiPro # BW49FR instead. This has the same specs aside from having a 4-1/2" rise as opposed to the 5" rise of the part you were looking at. The head piece is different though which is why it can fit with the newer tailgate design. I also recommend securing your investment with a hitch lock. You can...

I called my contact at B&W and they told me the shank and mount included with the BWTS10056 has a much higher capacity than the BWTS10048B, and they do not recommend using either part with the other system.

  • Trailer Hitch with Most Capacity for 2019 Ford F-150 Truck
    The trailer hitch with the most capacity that fits your 2019 Ford F-150 is the Curt # C26HR, which has a 1,000 lb tongue weight capacity and 10,000 lb towing capacity. This is a Class IV hitch with a 2 inch receiver that is a complete bolt-on installation which does not require any type of drilling into your truck's frame. This hitch has a mostly hidden crosstube, as you can see in the accompanying photo, so your 2019 F-150 can maintain its factory appearance. The Curt # C14017 is made...

    The Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches # 989900 would be a great option if you only have a couple trailers, but could be an issue with multiples and in some cases will involve tools. I definitely recommend going with an adjustable ball mount like # C45900. This will give you both a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch diameter hitch ball and the adjustment for switching hitch ball size and height takes only seconds with no tools required.

  • Adjustable Height Ball Mount Recommendation for 2000 Toyota Sienna for Towing Pop Up
    For a camper that weighs at 1,700 or less for your 2000 Toyota Sienna you wouldn't necessarily need a brake controller as that weight is less than half of the towing capacity for the Curt hitch part # C13511 that you have installed. There's a bit of variance in how tall the coupler will be on the trailer you end up with, but we do have the Tow and Stow # BWTS10048B which I can guarantee as a solution because it has an adjustable height to accomodate for various height trailers and because...

    Out of those two options, I recommend the 3" Drop B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount item # BWTS10047B for your 2019 Ford F-150. Both the 3" B&W Tow and Stow item # BWTS10047B and the 5" B&W Tow and Stow item # BWTS10048B are recommended to have 11" of clearance from the lowest portion of the ball mount to the ground so you don't have to worry about hitting the ground.

I've linked an installation video for you. If you prefer a hitch that has a higher weight rating, the Curt # C26HR is a Class IV, 2 inch hitch rated at 10,000 towing and 1,000 pounds tongue weight.

If you plan on using this hitch for towing then you'll also need the Wiring # TK99VR if you have LED lights or the Wiring # TK33VR if you don't have LED lights, as well as wiring bracket # 18144 (plus the No-Drill # 18140 if you use the Curt Hitch).

This will also bolt on very quickly and requires no drilling to get installed.

    Out of the Draw-Tite # 76154 and the Curt # C13304 trailer hitches I recommend the Curt option for your 2019 Nissan Titan SV because Curt tends to have stronger welds and a thicker powder coat which gives it better protection. Both options have the same weight ratings and so it really boils down to construction, for which Curt takes the prize.
