Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable 5K Ball Mount - GY62FR Review


Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at this Gen-Y Phantom ball mount with stacked receivers. This is going to slide right into your two-inch by two-inch trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle. The standard 5/8 inch diameter pin and clip to secure this to year hitch is sold separately and we also have locking options available here at etrailer.com, if you want to add a little extra security to this. It does have a powder coated heavy duty steel construction so it is going to resist corrosion and it's gonna provide a gross towing weight capacity of 5,000 pounds and a max tongue weight of 500 pounds. You can see we do have the five stacked receivers here.

These are all two-inch by two-inch receivers so these are going to accept the included ball platform as well as your other hitch-mounted accessories. They do include one pin to keep your accessories in the shanks here, or in the receivers here. Then we also have the ball platform that's included. Has a one-inch diameter hitch ball hole so you can put your hitch ball preference in there and get it set up to tow your trailer. So having those stacked receivers is going to allow us to adjust the height of our ball platform so that we can accommodate trailers of different height settings.

So if you're gonna be towing multiple trailers, if they're not the exact same height, having this option will make sure that everything's gonna stay nice and level for you as you're going down the road. So we've got a maximum drop, if we we're to put this at the lowest point, we measure our drop from the top inside edge of the receiver tube or about the top of our shank here down to our ball platform, which is about where your hitch trailer coupler is gonna be sitting. So our max drop here is about 11 inches. If we we're to flip this over, use it in the max rise position, put our ball platform up like this, it's gonna give us a max rise of 9 1/2 inches. So quite a bit of variety there to accommodate trailers of different heights.

So it gives you lots of ability to make sure that your trailer is gonna be level as you go down the road. Very simple to just switch that to the appropriate height setting and then put your pin and clip through. You'll be ready to go. This is made here in the USA so you can trust it's made to the high quality standards that we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the U.S. It also comes with a limited lifetime warranty, so if you we're to have any issues with it, you're more than welcome to reach out to us here at etrailer.com, but I think this is gonna do a really good job for you, gives you a lot of adjustability and make sure that you can tow those different trailer heights.

We do have diagrams of dimensions, so depending on what dimension you're looking for, you can find that on our web page for this product. That completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
