    Question for those of you folk who have "multiple toys" ever try this turnover ball?

    Hey!
    has any tried the "turnover ball" I thought this might be a good idea, but was wondering if any one used it. I have my ski, small bass boat and a popup trailer thought that this might be a good idea
    www.turnoverball.com
    when i received my "trailer boat mag i saw this.. looks pretty sturdy but once again i was just curious.

    Are you asking about the Tow & Stow drawbar/ball mount?

    Question

    yes that be the item... it looks like it might be just the ticket I wonder what that thing actually weighs any how.. my company gave us tow hitches for our company Chevy frailblazers, it's gotta weigh30+lbs. the turnover ball can be far behind. i think i will look into this thing.. sure beats playing "which hitch am i going to use today or walk into"
    you have any input on this contraption?

    There is an aluminum version called the Rapid Hitch, made by Andersen Manufacturing.
    PDF Installation Instructions





    All three drops have a 10,000 lb. GTWR and 1,500 lb. tongue weight
    All three drops are fully tested and verified by an independent lab for SAE J684 and V-5 certification
    The 5 1/4" drop has a whooping 10 1/2" vertical adjustment.
    Reversible double ball combs that includes either a 2" x 2 5/16" plated steel or Greaseless Alumiball ball combinations (as seen on the order page), or a 1 7/8" x 2" plated steel ball combo. A 1 7/8" Zinc plated single ball system is also available as an add-on item (see below). Stainless steel ball combos are also available in the 2" x 2 5/16" ball combination.
    The 3 1/4" and 5 1/4" drops are extremely light weight; only 14 lbs, and 19 lbs respectfully, and the 10" drop only an incredibly light 21lbs.
    Each drop size fits a standard 2" receiver and can be used in the drop or rise position
    The only hitch a multiple trailer owner will ever need
    Anti-theft keyed locking pins available for both models as add-on items (see below).


    They also make aluminum ball mounts;

    I like the aluminum that the Rapid Hitch is made from. After a few years, just soak her down with some Alumina Brite and all better. I've been trying for about a year to justify the price, though (~$200 to my door on ebay).

    I think you are talking about the receiver insert but I have the B & W gooseneck turnover ball hitch in my truck (we have a total of three where I work) and they are well built. Nice to be able to remove the ball for a slick bed too.

    They make a very nice fifth-wheel that goes in the same receptacle as my gooseneck ball--one of the guys here has one. Very nice and again, easy to install/remove.

    Thanks for the tip.
    I'm worried about the weight of this thing.. I went to see if the local 4x4 shop had one in stock, but they did not have the exact model i was interested in. I did however get a rough idea on what the weight was.

    This is a pretty neat gadget to have i think that when the summer arrives i'll go get me one. The Stow n go is all black (as my truck is) so i think that moght be the ticket.

    Thanks for the reply
