We tailgaters love our tailgating gear accessories that can fit into our tow hitches. After all, by utilizing the tow hitch that comes standard on many trucks and SUVs, that frees up more room in the bed or the cargo area for a bigger cooler, more chairs, a bigger tailgating TV or whatever else you can think of. Also, carrying something on the back of your car to the tailgate party just makes you look cooler.
Over the years of testing out tailgating gear and offering up product reviews on here, many of them have been of the “tow hitch” variety. Many of you are very familiar with the Custom Tailgating Grills we have grown quite fond of. In addition to those types of grills that travel to the game on the back of your truck or SUV we have also encountered gear like the Tailgate Partymate, the Party-a-Cargo Tow Hitch Kegerator and even a Tow Hitch Stripper Pole that all arrive via the tow hitch. The only problem we encountered with all this great stuff was that your car only has one tow hitch receiver.
With all these great Tow Hitch Accessories to choose from, how can you choose just one? Trying to decide which one to take and which one to leave home is like a tailgater’s Sophie’s Choice. Upon receipt of the Hitch-N-View and doing the product review I knew in the back of my mind that just having one tow hitch was not going to cut it anymore.
I had always known there were tow hitch accessories that expanded the tow hitch to include two receivers but never felt compelled strongly enough to go and get one of my own. After reviewing the Hitch-N-View and knowing that I was not going to be leaving my Chargers customized grill at home, I knew I was overdue for getting a Dual Tow Hitch Receiver.
As you can see from the photo gallery above, we just set it up in our driveway to get the feel of what it would be like while out in a tailgating parking lot. The one thing we did notice right away was that the grill felt slightly a bit lower than we were normally accustomed to after all of these years of using it directly out of the tow hitch that comes standard on our SUV. It was not substantially lower, just slightly lower because we placed it in the bottom hitch receiver. It may take some getting used to it at the next tailgate, but standing next to it it was not uncomfortable. It just felt different.
All in all, we are pleased with our newest addition to the tailgating cache and plan to break it out and use it at the next Chargers home game. Probably the highest, ringing endorsement we can make is revealing that we purchased the Dual Hitch Receiver from Camping World with our own money. Not a freebie and not an item sent to us to review.
Of course you don’t have to buy one from where we bought ours. We’re sure you can do some snooping online at Amazon.com or other online retailers and find one that will fit your needs. No matter if you choose to get one or not, the peace of knowing you don’t have to choose between tow hitch accessories does not exist anymore. That is unless you have THREE accessories you want to use while tailgating…
