Video Transcript for Curt Class III Ball Mount Review

Hello neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount with a two and 5/16 ball or a two-inch hitch. Now this ball mount will give you a six-inch drop, like we have in our configuration here. And that's gonna give you some solid towing capacities with a gross trailer weight rating coming in at 7,500 pounds. So that's gonna be the weight of the trailer plus the accessories on it. You also have a tongue weight rating of 750 pounds, and that's gonna be the pressure that's put down on the ball mount. Now it can also be put in a rise position, and that's gonna give you a four-inch rise.

You are gonna have to re-torque your ball, but you just flip this over, undo this, torque the ball back down, and you do need to actually check the weight capacities on that as it does lower in the rise position. In fact, in the four-inch rise, we're gonna get a 6,000 pound gross trailer weight rating and a 600 pound tongue weight. The ball does come included, comes pre-torqued, so you don't have to worry about torquing it down if you're gonna be in that drop position. And it's gonna be rated at 7,500 pounds, so that's gonna be great for a pretty high capacity on a vehicle like this. Also included is a pin and clip, so that makes it easy.

Once you get this in the mail, you can simply put it in your vehicle, hook up to your trailer, and you should be good to go. Now if you ever want to upgrade to a locking pin and clip, you are gonna wanna pick up a 5/8 pin and clip, and that way you can leave the ball mount on the vehicle locked in place, and no one's gonna walk away with it. Now something you'll want to do on your vehicle is make sure that you have clearance for the coupler of a trailer to get onto the ball without causing any issues with your fascia or your bumper. And this measuring from the center of the hitch-pin to the center of the shank diameter is gonna be nine and a quarter inches. So it puts it out far enough on our Hummer today to make it nice and easy to hook up.

The steel construction is heavy duty, but you do have a hollow shank so it makes it a little bit lighter, which is nice. So that way if you're not using your ball mount, you can store it in your vehicle and it cuts down on the weight a little bit. And you also have a chrome ball here so that's gonna hold up just like the powder coat finish to the extremes of weather. That way you can leave it on your vehicle and it's gonna look nice for a long time. Now, even though you have a two and 5/16 ball included and already torqued down, you're not limited to just this size.

If you ever swap trailers or you need to use a two inch or a one and 7/8 ball, you can definitely put that on this ball mount and it's still gonna work. You are gonna have to torque those down. And when choosing a ball, you're gonna wanna make sure you have a one-inch diameter and that way it works with this mount. So this is gonna be a great option for some of your enclosed trailers or campers. Just that anything that has that two and 5/16 ball. Now keep in mind, you are gonna want to also check the weight of the trailer, the hitch at what it's rated at, and also what the vehicle's rated at towing, and take the lowest of those numbers that way you're not overloading anything during your towing experience and you stay safe. And that was a look at the CURT Trailer Hitch Ball Mount with two and 5/16 ball or two-inch hitch.

Box had a hole in it where hitch ball came through. Other than a couple of scratches there was no damage. Maybe how you ship might need to change. Thanks

The tow bar, ball, and pin, pre-assembled, is a good deal for the money. Shipping was fast. Fits my truck nicely.

Good heavy Hitch



by:

Just your basic ball mount, the product is just like most 2” Hitch ball mounts, the service wasn’t very good though.
Ordered on June 15th (product was in stock) took them 6 days to send it out, took another 6 days in shipping and got all the way to my post office two days before leaving on vacation (I needed it for the vacation) and the post office said “box was empty and they notified seller” etrailer sent a new one (got here a week after my vacation) in a damaged box (packaging is horrible, little bit of paper in a box with a 5 lbs ball mount) almost lost this one too.
I don’t believe I’ll be using etrailer in the future (had issues before)



by:

I bought this on my knowledgeable brother's advice - he gave me the exact order number and link to buy from etrailer! I had it installed locally, without complications. I use my truck mostly to haul my horse or my friend's two donkeys in my 14-foot stock trailer. I have no complaints, the hitch does what it's supposed to do.



by:

The hitch is exactly as described on etrailer. The drop measured exactly 9-1/4" as I wanted it to be. Curt rounds this measurement up or down to a whole number, 10" in this case. That is way off when you want your trailer and truck towing level are looking for a particular drop. Thankfully etrailer measures these themselves and show you where they are measuring from so you know what hitch to ask for.



by:

Looks & works great. Easy to install. Make sure you order or have a locking pin and ball to go with it.



by:

I have two of these. My first I bought two years ago. I very highly recommend this Curt Class III Ballmount 2" Drop because of its price, durability and quality. I towed various class 3 loads with ease and confidence with this ballmount. It slides into the hitch and does its job without fail. It looks excellent after towing a load.

etrailer's price is about as good as it gets and delivery is very speedy.



by:

This is a great all-purpose hitch. I've used it to mount a heavy-duty bike rack and a steel T-rack to carry a canoe as well as lumber. Most recently I hauled 5 x 8 cargo trailers full of plants, then furniture for a 600-mile move. It was simple to use, problem free, very strong and sturdy. Now that I live on some acreage, I see a trailer in my future, so this will get a lot more use. I drive a 2013 Tacoma, so this is a good size hitch at a good price with sufficient capacity for my needs. I do use a key lock for the hitch as well.

Hitch ball and mounts all ready to the test!!!
Great
Products!!
Five Star e-trailer team, very informative, fast and accurate shipping, perfect packaging and "GREAT" customer service"



by:

I bought my first ball mount way back when I was broke (bought the cheapest one in the big box store). With my new trailer I needed 14k capacity instead of 10k so I double checked the mount before buying a heavier duty ball...it was rated for only 5k!! Folks, check those mounts to make sure they're rated for the job!! This one is a honker btw, love it. Side by side with old it's like brick vs bubble gum, embarrassing I haven't upgraded sooner. And thanks for the guidance.



by:

Does the job, however there's a lot of play when hitch mount is inserted into the hitch and when towing with an empty trailer. Very loud. Have to buy a silencer that goes around and secures the product.



by:

My order was missing installation parts, but the etrailer team were quick to correct the issue.

Even without a lift, I was able to install the receiver and brake light cable quickly, thanks to their extensive video libray.

  • Availability of Curt Ball Mount # C45070 with Ball
    For the Curt Ball Mount (4" Rise and 6" Drop) # C45070 that comes with a hitch ball you can use part # C45065 for a 2-5/16" ball or # C45064 for a 2" ball. Both options feature the same 7,500 pound towing weight capacity. Just keep in mind that the hitch ball does come pre-torqued from the factory with the unit in the drop position. It will require a bit of force to remove the ball so that you can flip the mount but you can certainly do this if needed. Otherwise you can simply order...

  • Availability of 5 Inch Drop Ballmount With Preinstalled 2 Inch Trailer Ball
    We don't offer a 5 inch drop ball mount, but if you were to use a 4 inch drop like part # C93KR and installed a # 63845 ball, you'll get a bit of squat in the rear suspension of the vehicle (which would vary according to the trailer's tongue weight) that would put you close enough to the 5 inch drop you're looking for. The ball needs to be torqued to 250 foot lbs, but any local shop should be able to do that for you without charging you an arm and a leg. The trailer doesn't need to be...

  • What Should Ball Mount With 6 Inch Drop be Rated For With Titan Hitch Box Extension
    So you only need the ball mount to be rated for (at least) the amount you are towing, which in this case is 4,500 lbs. That 4.5k is also the max capacity (when used at 34 inches) of the Titan hitch extension, which is the following part number: - Titan Hitch Box Extension for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # RP45292 So as long as your ball mount is rated for the max 4,500 lbs the # RP45292 is rated for, that's all you'll need. There aren't actually any ball mounts with the drop you need that...

  • Extended Ball Mount For Towing an Enclosed Trailer Behind a Motorhome
    I have a couple options for you as the Curt High-Low Adapter 45797 # C27KR is only designed to be used with tow bars when flat towing. The Curt Class III Ball Mount with 2-5/16" Ball # C45065 is only 9-1/4" long from the receiver hitch pin hole to the ball mount hole. The Curt Ball Mount # D-28 also has a 6" drop like the other Curt ball mount but this mount is 14-1/4" long from the receiver pin to ball mount hole. That would gain you 5 inches without using an adapter. The ball mount...
