Video Transcript for B and W Tow and Stow 3-Ball Mount Review

Hi there heavy hollers. Today we're gonna be taking a look at B&W's Tow & Stow 3-Ball receiver hitch. This ball mount comes with three different sized balls, and it's designed to fit in 2.5 inch hitches. We can see here in the end, we've got our two inch ball here, currently in the rise, 'cause our boat trailer here uses a two inch hitch, but we've also got a 1 7/8, and a 2 5/16 available. Another thing that's nice about this ball mount, is that it is adjustable. We've got seven inches of drop in its current position.

And if we we're to take it out and flip it over to where this portion was going upward, that would be the rise position, And we'd get about 7.5 inches in the rise position. We've got plenty of adjustment holes here, and each hole, the distance between those, is gonna give us about 1 3/8 of an inch of adjustment. When you're ready to adjust the height, it's pretty easy. We simply pull out the clips that hold our pins in place. And since this is a B&W, you'll appreciate how easy the pins just slide in and out.

The machining on these is just fantastic. So you can see here, also that, when we go to adjust it, that this is completely secured to our drop here. So, nobody can come along and grab our pins, and walk away with our ball. It's gonna stay secure on here. So, we can go ahead and slide it up to the position and that's gonna work best for us.

So, it's looks like, we're gonna be at about this position here. So, we'll just slide our pins back through, line up our holes, and then resecure the pins. So, now that we know the right height, we are gonna select the ball size that's appropriate for our setup. To do that, you'll wanna pull the pin for the ball, and you can see here that it now rotates. So, you can choose the most appropriate one for your trailer, whatever size your coupler is.

The smallest one on here is the 1 7/8. With this one, we're gonna have a maximum of a 3,500 pound towing capacity. The two inch is gonna give us a maximum of 7,500 pounds, and with our 2 5/16, we're gonna have a 14,500 pounds of towing capacity available to us. Regardless of which position you're using, this ball mount does have a 1,450 pound towing weight rating on it as well. And, that should be more than enough for anything you're gonna be hooking up to this thing. One of the things I'll point out, is that we've got two holes here for securing our ball. If you're gonna use the two, or the 2 5/16, you'll use the rear most hole to secure it in that position. If you're gonna use it in the 1 7/8, or in the storage position, you would use the forward most hole. So we're gonna set ours to the two inch, because that's what our trailer is here, and then resecure that pin. And having three different ball sizes, is going to maximize the versatility of what your truck can bring with you. Two inch balls are great for a lot of your boat trailers, and maybe your smaller car haulers. A lot of those have two inch hitches on them, so we've got a two inch available. We can bring all these things along with us. Your larger bumper pull campers and enclosed trailers, often have 2 5/16 inch balls, which we've got that available, again, with that 14,500 pound capacity, which should be more than enough than any of these campers have. Oftentimes these things usually top out about 10,000 pounds. So, you usually have plenty of leeway with that 2 5/16 ball. And, maybe it won't come up as often, but you've got a 1 7/8 inch ball in there as well. So, if you're doing a little bit of work around the house, you've got a small utility trailer that you'd like to hook up to just get some work done, you can do that. Or, maybe you've got a jet ski trailer or a kayak trailer. Something like that often has a 1 7/8 inch ball, 'cause it doesn't really have a lot of weight capacity to it. We're now over here, on our big enclosed camper. This is gonna show it off the best, as it's the biggest weight we've got here. It's a 2 5/16 ball. So, we've gone ahead and backed up. We did hook up our electrical so we can operate the jack, and we're just lowering our trailer onto it now. Once you've got it loaded on there, it's not uncommon for you to have to pull forward a little bit in order to get it latched. And, then you wanna finish hooking up the rest of your components, which includes your safety chains. Make sure you cross those to create a cradle underneath. So, in the event of a catastrophic disconnect, it'll catch your components, and keep from digging into the pavement. And, if you have brakes on your trailer, make sure you hook up that breakaway switch cable as well. The balls are double-chrome plated, to protect against rust and corrosion. And you can see, we put a little bit of grease on the ball that we use too, to help prevent any metal to metal contact, and extend the life of our ball. The body of it is constructed of steel, and can come in either a black powder coat finish, or chrome like we're showing off today. Now, we've talked about a lot, with our tri-ball features on this, but they don't call it the tow and stow for nothing. With this unit, we can actually store it, and reduce the distance that it sticks off the back of our truck here. So, to do that, we're gonna remove the pin and clip, and we're gonna put it in the 1 7/8 position. That's actually our storage position. We'll then resecure that. We'll pull both the pin and clips then, for our drop and rise position. And, you can see it'll drop all the way down. And once it drops all the way down, our ball actually will roll underneath. We can lift it back up as high as it'll go, and then reinsert our pins, and then store it right back into this position. And this is nice, because we've now reduced the distance that was sticking off the back here, by almost about six inches. It's quite a bit that sticks off the back. And, what this can do, is it can make the difference between being able to store your vehicle in the garage and shut the door. That sticking off at the back there, might've been just that enough that prevented that door from shutting. And also, if you have a slightly oversized garage, mine's a little bit deeper, and if I wanna park my truck in there, and I've got a ball on the back, it will fit, but I can't get around the truck. This will give me the distance that I need to be able to walk around and still utilize my garage when the truck's inside. And I like it. One of my favorite parts, is when you're doing stuff in the garage, or out working, you're usually in a hurry, you're running by, and all of a sudden you've hit your shin on that ball. And boy does that hurt. You're saying a lot of things you shouldn't say. Putting it like this makes it much closer to the truck, and it really minimizes the odds of you accidentally hitting it. I also kind of like the chrome finish. It makes it a little bit easier to see. So, even when it's darker outside, you're walking, maybe just using a flashlight or just a small light, it's gonna reflect really well, making this obvious that it's there. And one final feature that we really haven't talked about, is the hitch pin mounting holes located on our receiver hitch here. We've got two that are a little bit over an inch apart from one another. So, you can adjust as necessary to ensure you've got the appropriate distance for the truck and trailer that you're using in combination together. And that completes our look at B&W's Tow & Stow 3-Ball receiver hitch..

Love it. One of a kind with the Browning logo.

It has worked for everything I have needed. Great when you can stow it away and not have to dig out a different size ball every time you hook up to a different trailer. I have had a few friends order them based on seeing mine.

It’s great because it does everything I need

Received my B&W tow and stow today (February 16, 2018) and this thing is a masterpiece and a beast!. I pick apart anything that I buy and I can't find one thing to say negative. B&W made this with precision and heavy duty materials, very solid!!, even the packaging. The browning logo is well done, slightly recessed so it shouldn't get nicked. I will mainly use it for a 800 pound waive runner and at times a 2,500-4,000 pound trailer. I love the adjustability and the stow capability. This looks to be my last hitch ball. Thanks Danny T (customer service)

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great price and fast shipping. However the hitch is very loose in the receiver. I’ve never had a hitch wobble like this one does. I guess I’ll have to order something to correct that.


Comments
It sounds like your ball mount might be a bit too small. If you measure the inside to inside of the hitch receiver, we can confirm the exact size you need. We do have part # BLU79XR, that would fit a 2.5 inch hitch, but I would like to double check and make sure that this ball mount will actually fit your application.

I have a 2.5 receiver on my 2015 F350 Super Duty. I do have the 2.5 to 2 adaptor to accept the 2 hitch, but I suspect the adaptor only amplifies the sloppy fit. I tried my old BW hitch with has a shorter and its just as loose, but I never noticed it as much because the is much shorter.

I have noticed in your picture that you actually have the 3 inch OEM hitch with the adapter sleeves that are provided when purchasing larger trucks. We do have some safe application options for you. We have a 3 inch ball mount with a 7 inch and 7.5 inch rise, part # BWTS30040B

. This will prevent you from needing to use adapter sleeves at all. We also offer a hitch receiver immobilizer for 3 inch hitches, part # BLU85QR

, as well.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Sent the wrong hitch in a box that was obviously opened previously. I paid for newz NOT an open box. Hitch is filthy, and is for a 3" receiver, NOT a 2 1/2". Will have to cancel my trip this weekend as a result. Thanks for nothing.

Thanks for reaching out. I have sent your information along to our customer service team.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


New buy but they seem to be well built. I like that the lock screws into the pin as opposed to the assembly that latches on (I’ve seen video where those can be forced off).


Comments
Highly recommended. I bought locking pins so that i can keep it mounted 247. Would buy this product again. Very sturdy, well worth it.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


After doing some research and trying to figure out what style and brand of ball mount to get…..I settled on this B&W product. Its nice to have the ability to adjust your ball mount for different trailers just in case you need to. Being a machinist, I found that this was very well made……no burrs anywhere, clean welds, very nice powder coat finish and packed in heavy duty cardboard to prevent hopefully no issues with shipping.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Awesome product & service. We have B & W adjustable hitches installed on all of our trucks. As we tow various trailers with various trucks these hitches are the ticket, best ever made & excellent quality.
Awesome job on etrailers service, wouldn't go anywhere else. Thank you

Perfect drop for my lifted truck, feels solid. Documentation indicates use only B&W pins but I purchased locking pins. Hope they are within specs.

Review from a similar Tow and Stow in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Our GOTO hitch for all our high profile trucks. We have several different B&W hitches.
Purchased this hitch 15-20 years ago... NEVER disappointed, never a failure. Bequeathed this older hitch (she didn't want a new one?) to my oldest daughter, she had always wanted this one for her truck. She said IT had been "TOW" tested to the extremes.
A NEW Ford F250 required a new hitch. THIS B&W is the one we use for our 7K GTW (Gross Trailer Weight), bumper-pull travel trailer. It has a 10k working limit, but a safety factor is built into this hitch. We have used this hitch with a 12k GTW (Gross Tongue Weight) on the farm, for a short tow (less than 10 miles) on many occasions, but it's NOT recommended!!!
One must be aware, when in the drop position the hitch can drag (again, NOT recommended!) on a low departing rise, but it can handle it (depending on your receiver). I have (slowly) backed into rocks that jarred the truck to a stop, but no issues with this B&W.
I normally rate my product reviews with 4 Stars to leave room for improvement. This B&W hitch gets 5 STARS!
Purchase ANY B&W hitch and you will NEVER Regret you did.


Comments
Nothing I can add to a one year review. The original comment leaves nothing out. Like others have said, a hitch lock is a necessary insurance investment!

  • Recommended 3-Ball Tow and Stow Compatible with Custom Bumper
    We do have the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5.5" Rise - 10K - Browning # BWTS10048BB which has a pin hole farthest from mounting block dimension of 5-5/8 inches. Another option with the same depth measurement is the # BWTS10047BB which has a 3 inch drop. These are the only B&W hitches that have the 3-Ball option that will fit your bumper. I recommend the hitch lock # BWTS51234 to secure your investment.

  • B&W Tow & Stow Adjustable Ball Mount Adapter for 2 Inch Receiver
    There isn't an adapter available, because using one would reduce the hitch capacity to the point where it wouldn't be safe. I checked to see if B&W perhaps offered a 2 inch shank, but unfortunately they do not. You'd be best off selling your # BWTS20049B Tow & Stow and using the proceeds toward one for a 2 inch hitch. If you would be interested in a replacement that offers the same 7 inch drop/7-1/2 inch rise as the one you currently have, you could use part # BWTS10049B. However, you'll...
