B&W Trailer Hitches Tow & Stow
B&W Tow and Stow Magnum Receiver Hitch Ball Mounts adjust to multiple heights and eliminate the need for multiple ball mounts. These ball mounts also stow underneath when not in use, protecting the hitch from shins, garage doors and other safety issues. Black powder-coating over a zinc phosphate base ensures ultimate durability and long lasting good looks.
Your Hitch Was Made Right Here
You’ve got a lot riding on your hitch and the only thing keeping your truck and your trailer connected are those relatively small pieces of engineered steel. That’s why we treat the manufacture of your trailer hitch with the respect it deserves. For one, we insist on American-made steel, like the sheet steel we buy from U.S. Steel out of Gary, Indiana or the round bar that becomes the gooseneck ball made at a mill in Norfolk, Nebraska. Where the strength and flexibility of the steel can mean life or death, we trust the U.S. steel mills with their finely controlled processes and specifications we can trust. A hitch is only as good as the welds holding it together. We insist on making those welds under our roof.
Know Before Towing
We have rated your Tow & Stow hitch to tow 10,000 lbs (14,500 lbs if you have the 2 1/2″ shank model; 21,000 lbs if you have the 3″ shank model). This is called Gross Towing Weight Rating (GTWR*). The Vertical Towing Weight Rating (VTWR*) also called Tongue Weight Rating is 1,000 lbs (1,450 lbs if you have the 2 1/2″ shank model; 2,100 lbs if you have the 3″ shank model). Both your towing vehicle and your trailer ratings are very important. Instructions on how to find these ratings are on the next few pages of this book. All of our Tow & Stow hitches are tested for both strength and endurance according to SAE J-684, the latest standard for bumper pulled hitches.
