I seriously can't stop looking at my beautiful, shiny hitch receiver! I've wanted to upgrade for over a year and finally did. I feel like I just ordered this YESTERDAY, and it showed up today! Thank you so much for a QUALITY product! ?



by:

Poor packaging. The end was partially open and the Ball Mount almost came out. If any thing else was in there it did not arrive

I see that you only ordered this ball mount so nothing was lost.

The Trophy Ball Mount 7" rise, 8" drop has been awesome. I always have had stainless steel and steel ball mounts in the past. I was quite surprised at the capacities and have been extremely happy with how lightweight it is. Due to a vehicle change and different height in hitch, we had to get a larger drop in order for the trailer to be level. I was dreading working with a large steel drop hitch due to the weight, I'm so happy I found this Brophy aluminum one on ETrailer.



by:

Got this for Sienna minivan b/c hitch is very low (10.5" from ground) and kind of deep under the rear bumper. This ball mount is long enough to (barely) clear the bumper, which is fantastic. I didn't want to have to use an extender.



by:

these parts are easy to obtain through etrailer

towing loads with the right accessories is mandatory and etrailer always help me keep my equipment safely on the road



by:

I use this with a 1" rise ball on my 2013 F150's front hitch to get enough distance from the front bumper and correct height.



by:

It's the right rise for my trailer, it's lighter and it won't rust. Already tried and works perfectly. Very impressed with the product and the company, and their shipping, it was right on time. Nice people to deal with and will again, thanks so much.



by:

Perfect ball mount for my 2019 Kia Sorento which has a low hitch, so finding a good 7" rise was essential. Nice lightweight, well made ball mount. On top of that great customer service, followed my order and made sure I received this in time for our next camping trip!



by:

Outstanding customer service!

The product is exactly as advertised and seems to be high quality. Service was excellent as was the follow up after delivery. The delivery was exactly as said and the whole transaction was very smooth. Totally recommend etrailer based on my recent purchase.

Review from a similar Reversible Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


4 stars due to arriving with scratches and Knicks in aluminum.... 20 minutes of polishing and it looks almost perfect. Weighs 4.45#. with a 2" ball it weight 7#. Nice light weight shin buster. Would have liked it to come without scratches/Knicks over it but it's made to haul and will get them with use anyway. Almost a perfect mirror finish, very attractive.

Review from a similar Reversible Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Very nice ball mount. Smooth, one piece design. Unlike my previous ball mount, it's long enough (enough straight length between the pin hole and the beginning of the bend) to accommodate a Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II, yielding a nice, tight connection.

Attractive polished finish.

Made in Taiwan (according to the box it came in).

Photos show it attached to a Hidden Hitch Class III Hitch Receiver, secured with a Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II, and a Curt 40053 2-inch stainless steel ball.

Review from a similar Reversible Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great looking product and fast service as usual. Now I can keep it clean and stored under my seat without the grease and rust issue. The ball mount with the 2" Brophy stainless ball and the Master Lock Pivot Hitch pin work perfect. Thanks, Garland R in Kentucky...…….

Review from a similar Reversible Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Perfect for my Tahoe. I have a 2019 Tahoe LS 4x4 with the max tow package. The receiver is mounted higher than than on the truck it replaced. Six inches of drop appears to be just about right for my boat trailer.

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Trailer Hitch Ball Mount



  • 8 Inch Drop Ball Mount with Longer Shank for Attachment of Towing Bike Rack
    For a longer 2 inch ball mount that has 8 inches of drop the Brophy part # EA80 would most likely be your best option. This ball mount has 4-1/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the beginning of the bend in the ball mount. Or for a steel ball mount with 4 inches you would want the # AMSC8.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Sienna to Tow a Boat Trailer Level
    Since the coupler height on the trailer is 18 inches and the receiver height on the 2014 Toyota Sienna is 11-1/4 inches a ball mount with a 4 inch rise will not be high enough to tow the trailer level. You would need a ball mount with a 6-3/4 inch rise (or something very close) to tow the trailer level. Let's first make sure we measure things the same way. We measure the receiver height the same as you have done; to the top of the receiver opening. On the trailer side, with the trailer...

  • Ball Mount Extension or Extended Ball Mount For Curt Clamp-On Bike Rack
    If you put on a Hitch Extender # HE06 you will reduce your trailering capacity to 350lbs tongue weight and 3,500 total trailer weight. Most of the receiver extensions with that much rise include a gusset for strength that may prevent the Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack # C18013 from fitting properly. One that you can consider is the Brophy Ball Mount # EA80. It has no gusset but the design may not allow it to work. I have included a picture with the mount measurements for you to compare with...

  • Recommended Ball Mount With 7 Inches of Rise for a 2012 Hyundai Sante Fe
    The Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2793 does have the needed 7 inches of rise, but from the center of the pin hole to the closest edge of the upright gusset is only 3 3/4 inches, so I don't think it will work with your vehicle, unfortunately. That being said, we do have a couple other options available for you. The Brophy # EA80 has the needed 7 inches of rise, but at the closest point it is 4 1/8 inches to the center of the pin hole. This does rise pretty quickly and may still work for you, but...

  • How to Tow a 5th Wheel with a 1995 Ford F-150 Short Bed with Gooseneck Hitch
    The issue you are going to run into when towing a 5th wheel trailer with a short bed truck regardless of whether or not you are using a gooseneck adapter is cab clearance. In order to execute a full 90 degree turn you will need to have a certain amount of clearance between the cab of your truck and the loft of the trailer which is simply not sufficient when using a short bed truck without a sliding 5th wheel hitch or rotating pin box in certain cases. In order to recommend the correct...

  • Hitch & Ball Mount for 2002 Jeep Wrangler to Clear Spare Tire
    You can avoid clearance issues between your 2002 Jeep Wrangler's rear-mounted spare tire and your towing ball mount by using a ball mount long enough that will extend past the rear edge of the tire. The 2-inch hitch I suggest for your 2002 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is Curt # 13408. This is a no-drill bolt-on installation. When we installed a Class III hitch on your vehicle we found that the distance from the hitch pin hole to the rear of the spare tire was 6-1/4-inches. Once it is installed...

  • Gooseneck Trailer Compatibility with 1995 Ford F-150
    The Brophy Ball Mount - 7" Rise, 8" Drop - 15-1/4" Long - Aluminum - 8,000 lbs # EA80 is only rated for a tongue weight of 800 lbs which most trailer hitch receivers won't be able to handle but most gooseneck trailers will exceed. Gooseneck trailers typically use the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball like # SC30-C that is also the size used with larger bumper pull trailers, however it is not recommended to tow a gooseneck trailer behind your bumper as they are designed to be towed over the rear axle...

  • What Small Trailer do You Recommend for My 2015 Dodge Dart?
    According to the stats I found on your 2015 Dodge Dart, it is only rated to tow up to 1,000 pounds. We do have a utility trailer that weighs only 305 pounds. That is the Detail K2 Mighty Multi Utility Trailer - 6' Long # K2MMT4X6. We also have the heavier/larger Detail K2 Mighty Multi A-Frame Utility Trailer - 7-1/2' Long # K2MMT5X7 (451 pounds). However, given these two trailers, I recommend the # K2MMT4X6 because the tailgate can be used as a ramp and it weighs less. If you need wiring,...
