Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mount Review

Hi there, heavy haulers. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at CURT's line of 3/4 inch rise, two-inch drop drawbars with a one-inch hole for its shank. We've got the 8 1/4 inch length model here hooked up to our trailer and installed in the hitch. And the one I'm holding in my hand is going to be the 10 1/4 inch length version. So, this one is gonna be a little bit longer. So if you need that extension, you've got it.

Now, the only difference between the lengths of our drawbars here are going to be the lengths. As far as the weight ratings, they're still both gonna have a 7,500 pound gross trailer weight rating, which is how much that it can pull behind it. And they're both gonna have a 750 pound tongue weight. So, going with a slightly longer drawbar here, you don't sacrifice any weight ratings. If we take a look down the tube, you can see that it is a hollow shank.

It's not a solid shank. And we can see here, we do have a very thick platform for our ball to attach. And that is gonna be a 7/8 inch thickness. That's important when determining the length of shank that you're gonna need on the ball that you install on it. I recommend at least a two and eighth-inch shank for your balls when installing them on here.

Now, before you can use your drawbar, obviously, you have to install a ball on it. So, you can follow along with me in the shop. And we have a CURT ball with the same weight rating and appropriate shank size to install into our drawbar here. The first thing we're gonna wanna do when choosing your ball is verify what ball size your trailer needs. So, if your trailer, usually on the coupler, you're gonna see that it's written on there what size you need.

And two-inch is kind of one of the most common sizes for your midsize trailers. So, we're gonna go ahead and show you how to install the ball here. You also wanna double check your weight ratings and try to match those up with your trailer. So, if your trailer's 5,000 pounds, I'd recommend getting like a 6,000 or more bar and ball to make sure that you've got plenty of capacity available there. That way, you also get a little bit of head room in case you happen to maybe overload it just a little bit or something. So check your weight ratings, check your trailer ball size. At that point, the only other thing you really need to check is for a drawbar 'cause your truck can sit at varying heights and your trailer also sits at varying heights. Oftentimes, with a two-inch ball on a trailer, usually between 16 and 18 inches is kind of the average that you would typically find a trailer riding level at. So, you would take to see where your hitch is at the back of your truck, level your trailer, and make sure that you get a drop or rise that will allow your ball to sit roughly at the height that it needs to for your trailer. So, we're gonna be using this mount from CURT here today. You can actually get these in a couple of different lengths, depending on if you need one that sticks out a little further. That can be important depending on the vehicle you're working on. A lot of times, trucks don't really care and they use the shorter one here just fine. But some of your vehicles could have the hitch tucked up further underneath the vehicle where you would need a little bit more extension. You also wanna double check your shank diameter and make sure that the diameter of your drawbar matches that of your ball. The ball we're installing today has a one-inch shank. So, make sure you got a one-inch hole on your drawbar to match that. So, we're gonna go ahead and get this mounted on here. We're gonna install it in the rise position, which means it will be like this with the ball on top. This would be the drop position down here, but we do wanna go ahead and put it in the rise position. So, we're gonna go ahead and grab our ball, unscrew the nut, and slide the washer off of there. The ball will drop down into whatever position you're intending on putting it in. We'll then take our ball, we're gonna go ahead and slide it into the vice here. Go ahead and you can drop your nut and your washer on top there. Get those loosely started. And the ball has flat spots on each side. So that way, you can hold it here in the vice to tighten it down. And you can see those flat spots there. So, we're just gonna line those up in there, snug down our vice here, and that'll hold our ball in place. And I also like to line up the flat spots with the drawbar. Just think it gives you a nicer final look once you're done. So now, we'll go ahead and tighten it down. We're gonna use a 1 1/2 inch socket to do so. And you are gonna need a pretty beefy torque wrench to be able to tighten these down. And you should be able to accomplish this with a half inch drive torque wrench. Many of those are gonna go up to the required torque spec for this. But do double check because it is gonna be towards the top end of what a half inch torque wrench typically will torque up to. All right. Once we got it torqued, at that point, we can just take it out of the vice, slide it into the two-inch receiver on the back of our vehicle, and secure it with a 5/8 inch hitch pin and clip. We'll now just insert our drawbar here into our receiver and secure it with the pin and clip. Typically, with your two-inch receivers here, you're gonna have a 5/8 inch hole diameter. And a lot of the drawbars available here at etrailer, you can get them in a lot of different configurations. Whether you get a pin and clip included, get a ball included, or just get random parts, if you are gonna part it out yourself, then you're looking at three different pieces you would need here to be able to secure this to your hitch. The ball, the drawbar, and the pin and clip. So, here we are now at our trailer. This uses a two-inch ball. This is just a kind of a utility trailer. It's a tandem axle. Something that would pair well with this. Our trailer here should not exceed 7,500 pounds. And we have 7,500 pound ratings here so we should be good to go there. Both our ball and our drawbar are rated for 7,500 pounds. So that way, they match. And you always go by the lowest rating. So, if for example, our hitch was only rated for 6,000, that means our max would be six, not 7,500. Now, our hitch is gonna be higher than that here, but that's just an example. Now, before you hook up your ball, typically, you would want to grease the ball. That lubrication provided on there will let it maneuver inside of the trailer coupler easier and help to prevent metal on metal wear. And that also helps to protect the chrome surface here, which protects your ball against corrosion and makes it look nice as well. So, for demonstration purposes today, we're not going to be lubricating the ball but we'll just go ahead and lower it on here so we can show you the hook up. Just drop your trailer down. And sometimes it's necessary to push your trailer a little bit to the left or to the right to kind of get it to line up with the ball there. After we get it dropped down on there, we'll secure it in place and then hook up the rest of your connections that you would have for your trailer, which is typically going to be a pair of safety chains. So, make sure you hook those up. And if you have the ability to, you'll wanna cross those, putting the driver's side chain on the passenger side and vice versa with the other. That way, it creates a cradle. In the event of a catastrophic disconnect, this cradle will hold our coupler up off the ground to keep it from digging down into the pavement. And, of course, you also wanna hook up your electrical connector as well. And then we just need to bring our tongue jack up and we're ready to go ahead and haul off. All right, once we get this up, we should be good to go. And it may seem like we are a little bit high here on our trailer, but we have a completely unloaded trailer here. Once we would put some weight in the trailer, that would help even it out, giving us a nice flat towing experience. And that completes our look at CURT's line of 3/4 inch rise, two-inch drop drawbars with a one-inch shank hole..

Our problem: back lift gate on our Subaru Ascent SUV would not clear the powered tongue jack on our Casita trailer. Technical person on the phone suggested this this extended ball mount was just the solution and has served us well. Easy to take on and off. Sturdy. No problems for > 9,000 miles of towing this year.



by:

This allowed me to back up my camper easier because it move the distance from hitch to wheels just enough. Very very strong.



by:

Haven’t received this yet I’m hopeful it is what we need. Say’s it won’t be delivered until the 14th. Planned on using it on the 14th so I hope it’s here then.



by:

Great product, super fast shipping. Would recommend them, and Of I need anymore trailering needs I'll surely shop here!



by:

I wish I had searched etrailer YEARS ago for this receiver that allowed me to clear the rear bumper of my camper along with a 18 in extension! Easy ordering and great service

Always great products and great pricing. Not to mention super fast delivery.

The hitch and ball i purchased is the perfect match that i was looking for.super strong and is working out great.



by:

Not what I originally ordered. I ordered one similar that was on back order. They called me on a Sunday and suggested this one since it was in stock. I actually prefer this one and can’t believe how good their service was. They shipped it that day and I received the next. OUTSTANDING SERVICE. It’s rare today when people exceed expectations. Thanks for all of your help.



by:

I needed to replace a hitch drawbar that had a 3" drop to level my off road trailer during towing so I chose this one from etrailer, and as with every other time that I have ordered from etrailer the product quality and ease of ordering was excellent. I have been ordering products from etrailer for several years and I have never had an issue with the quality of their products or the ordering process.



by:

This longer draw bar has eliminated car to trailer interference I used to get when making sharp turns with my two kayaks on a short trailer.

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)

  • Width of the Ball Mount Platform of the Curt Ball Mount # C45250

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Jack Upgrade for a 2022 Gulf Stream Ameri-Lite 189
    The 2022 Gulf Stream Ameri-Lite 189 will accept pretty much any standard electric a-frame trailer jack. I recommend the Electric Trailer Jack part # 3370093500 as it will simply plug into the vehicle trailer connector and pull power from the battery. Therefore, you don't have to do any additional wiring so un-bolt the old jack and install the new with same hardware.

  • Differences Between Curt Ball Mounts # C45250 and # D-26
    The two ball mounts from Curt # C45250 and # D-26 also known as 45260 are very similar but there is a small difference along with the different style you noticed. The # D-26 has a center of hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole length of 12-5/8 inches while the # C45250 has 12-1/4 inches. That 3/8 distance might allow for better bumper clearance for a particular vehicle. Both are Class III ball mounts, both will fit 2 inches hitches, they both have the same weight capacity and...

  • Shock Absorbing Ball Mount/Trailer Ball Recommendation for Pop Up Camper
    Curt offers a solution that would provide additional shock absorption to help isolate the tow vehicle from the shock the trailer experiences on bumpy roads, while still allowing you to use your existing # C45250 ball mount. The Curt # C40047 RockerBall is a 2 inch trailer ball with a 1 inch diameter shank that would be fully compatible with your existing ball mount. The ball has a 7500 lb capacity, so it'll work great with your pop up camper.

  • How to Gain More Height Clearance for Towing a Trailer and Using the Swagman Trailhead
    The multipurpose ball mounts like your Curt # D210 are pretty unique and while I do have a solution for you, the other options like high-low adapters aren't meant for towing. The best (and only) solution for you to use a Gen-Y Hitch like part # 325-GH-314, flip it upside down, and use a ball mount with a 2" drop like part # C45250. This gives you the same height for your ball mount but then it has stacked receivers for a max difference of about 7-1/2" to mount your Swagman Trailhead # S63381..
