Corrosion-resistant ball mount is 11-1/4" long and fits 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers. Ball mount can be used in the rise position only.


Used on my 1999 Dodge Intrepid's CURT 12006 Class II 1.25 in. Receiver Hitch: 350lbsTW/3500 lbs GTW. I use this Curt Class II Drawbar - 3-7/8" Rise - 11-1/4" Long - 3,500 lbs to tow a 3,500+ GTW dual axle trailer. I have used it with the trailer FULLY loaded and it performs EXCELLENT. You have to make sure the trailer is loaded correctly so as not to put too much down force on the tongue/drawbar. I was skeptical that the SOLID 1.25" bar would not take the load, but it is super strong. I chuck it in the trunk when not in use to protect passerby's shins, but it sticks out far enough clear the Intrepid's bumper, and is solid with a 2" ball (required a bushing). etrailer got it out fast at a good price! I would totally purchase this again from them.

I stand by my review completely. Super rigid drawbar and powder coating has held up well. Not much to go wrong with it and I am still amazed at its strength.
Christian v - 06/10/2019


Awesome drawbar! The order process was smooth and flawless from beginning to end. Shipment was fast and accurate. I would highly recommend etrailer for all of your trailering needs!

I’ve used this product several times over the past year and it continuously works flawlessly!
Randy - 11/11/2021


It work sas described


This drawbar is exactly what I needed. It attaches to the hitch with no noticeable issue, and clears the rear bumper. Excellent!


Every part excellent quality. Perfect fit, all parts were exact for my vehicle. Watched the video on youtube for wiring and being a mechanic for over 50 years was able to connect signal lights all from driver side of harness. Instead of leaving plug inside trunk I wired through the rubber outlet to the back of the hitch ready for use. Very happy highly recommend etrailer.

Very happy with products all high quality feel confident using. Thanks
Brad H - 09/24/2018


Fits well but did not have the pin for the receiver extension. I purchased both extension and hitch from this site and would have figured it would be complete.

The pin and clip for this ball mount is available as # F-4
Curt Hitch Pin and Clip for 1-1/4" Hitches - 1/2" Diameter x 2-1/2" Span
-- Etrailer Expert Rachael H - 05/07/2018


My hitch receiver is low to the ground on a Honda Civic. This raised my hitch ball about 4" so my kayak trailer tows level, and is now less likely to bottom out on a driveway.


Very good ball mount. I have it on a 2012 Toyota Corolla S with 16" wheels. If I had to do it over again, I'd get a lower rise since the 3-1/8" rise on this model seems a little high for my car, but no big deal. I might also get a little shorter one since this mount is 11-1/4" long, but again no big deal. I'm keeping ball mount, it's also good protection if I ever get rear-ended in my small car (it's happened before and my truck sustained no damage whatsoever thanks to ball mount--unlike the car that rear-ended my truck).


Not much to say! really ! I had ordered another hitch for a certain height so I could have clearance of the hitch from the rear door of my Toyota Rav4, the size was perfect, the Mini-Camper-Utility trailer sits 1 inch off level tilting forward , when loaded it sits perfectly level, I can open the rear door 3/4's its full swing, It came in the post wonderfully wrapped, came on time, I have made purchases from etrailer in the past with spectacular service, a follow up e mail that, should I have any problems it would be taken care of. I highly recommend etrailer to all, and a big thank you to Ms. Ashley E. for a spectacular service. Jim Raymond Massachusetts


Installed the drawbar...fits easily into the receiver and looks to be a good height when combined with the C12252 Curt trailer hitch receiver on the 2012 Impala. Didn't rate excellent because I haven't used it to tow yet.


Ordered all three items on 3/16/15 and it was delivered 4 days later (3/20/15) as promised. Can't say enough about what excellent customer service this order system was and very simple to use. The promised date of delivery was right on the money.
I've already installed the hitch and wire assembly and the instructions were very easy to follow.
Thank you


got it in yesterday, very very fast shipping and delivery.
I am well pleased with the product, cannot complain about it craftsmanship at all, very well built.

I added a rattle reducer along with this, I do recommend anyone putting a rattle/noise reducer on along with not only this but with any hitch insert.

plain and simple they all will rattle and make noise..

but overall I recommend this to anyone... you will not be disappointed.

Mine is on my 2016 KIA Soul, 2.0 L
I have one of the Scoota Trailers designed to haul my mobility scooter...


This item is what I was looking for. I needed a longer ball mount and this fits the bill. It is well made and it fits good, it's not sloppy in the receiver like some other brand names. Shipping was fast.


I received this receiver about 5:00 PM only three days after ordering it. I called the customer and he delivered his car at 7:00 PM. I installed the the receiver, the taillight converter and wiring, called the customer back and He picked it up ready to tow his trailer by 8:15 PM. That is amazing. Flawless fit and function. That is how to satisfy a customer.


Great!!! etrailer has great selection, prices and quality. I always buy from them! I bought Chevy Malibu class one hitch to pull our jet ski, no issues, still have it installed!


Excellent, strong, functional. Great buy! Thank you!


Good product, sturdy and made out of solid steel. Before ordering I suggest measuring the distance from the hitch pin hole to the back of the bumper. The first ball mount I received was unfortunately not long enough


Drawbar came as described and fit the 1.25" receiver without problem. Purchase was on the doorstep earlier than delivery time estimate when ordered. This was my second purchase with absolutely no issues. A great place to do business.


I just got my order,Katherina could not have been better,ever thing was just like it
should be,When I call to ask about the hitch I was not going to order that day but
she was so helpful that I ordered then,it took three days to get here,I'm putting
it on a 2007 Chev. Impala,I don't have a camera to take any pictures but I know it
will fit fine.I will be telling all my friends about you. Thank you Katherina
Clarence S


Ease of install--Great. Worse part exhaust lowering. Other than that product is great. Wire harness install- a five year old could do it. very satisfied will always come to you, have now got my business.


Received the hitch components promptly and in excellent condition. Followed the video instructions and had a successful installation without a "hitch". The sales tech was very helpful.


Products exactly as ordered. Very fast shipping. After I ordered, I realized there was another item I wanted. I called the 800 number and Steffen was a great help, cancelled the current order, placed everything in a new order and added the new item I wanted. Allowed me to get the savings due to order value.
Great service.


Fast shipping, everything I ordered arrived in perfect shape. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family.


The product was shipped quick. The hitch is an excellent piece of equipment, looks great. Thank you for your continued quality and customer service.


Great Quality and Price - directions and online video was perfect and easy to follow for installation.

  • What is Rise of Curt Ball Mount # C45522
    Actually we've had this come up a few times. We've had three different people measure this ball mount and we've all come up with 3-7/8 inches of rise despite what Curt's site says. If you need a 3-7/8 inch rise ball mount this one WILL work great for you.

  • Recommended Extended Ball Mount With Rise To Keep Trailer From Hitting The Ground
    It sounds like you need a new ball mount. We do have ball mounts that have a rise, which would lift the coupler of your trailer and possibly give you the clearance you need. If you have a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver opening and need about 3-1/8 inches of additional clearance I recommend part # C45522. This measures 11-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the ball mount hole which should give you plenty of additional room to keep from mashing your hand. If you have...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation with More Rise than Curt # C45016
    The Curt ball mount part # C45016 has a rise of 2-5/8 inches so for a ball mount with more rise you'd want the # C45522 if you were looking for 3-7/8 inches of rise instead. This also fit a Class II hitch. You would want to check out the FAQ article I attached below on picking out the correct rise/drop ball mount as well.

  • Can a Cadillac CTS-V Tow a Trailer
    I do have an option for you depending on what year your Cadillac CTS-V is but they do not offer a trailer hitch with a 2" receiver tube for this vehicle. As you mentioned, power is not an issue on the V model but other factors such as frame strength come into play when trailer manufacturers decide if they will offer a trailer hitch with a 2" receiver tube for the vehicle. Now, with that being said a 2" receiver tube is not required to tow a trailer but you will need to abide by the towing...

    When measuring to see if you need a ball mount with a Rise or Drop you will want to make sure that your 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon is level and you will want to measure from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver. For your trailer you will want to park it on level ground and measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. The difference between these 2 numbers will determine if you need a ball mount with a Rise or Drop. I have attached a helpful article and a picture to...

    For the Curt hitch part # C11438 that you have installed on your 2005 Volvo V50i has a recommended ball mount, part # C45522. This is a couple inches longer than the # C45561 you currently have so it would give you the clearance you'd need.

    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11371 can absolutely be used to tow a U-Haul trailer. However, the towing capacity of your Cruze is only 1,000 lbs so the trailer cannot exceed this figure. I was able to look up a few of the U-Haul trailers and there are some under this capacity. In addition to the above trailer hitch you will also need a trailer wiring harness like the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56214, a ball mount like the Curt Drawbar part # C45522, and...

    If you have a gas engine in your 2015 Chevy Cruze you would want the Curt Hitch part # C11282, if you have a diesel engine you would want the part # C11371. For a ball mount you would want the part # C45522, 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19256, 2 inch ball # 19258. If you are looking for a bike rack the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 is a great option.

    The most popular hitch for a 2013 Chrysler 200 Sedan or Convertible is the Curt Class I trailer hitch # C11133. I wouldn't recommended using a cargo carrier to carry an electric wheelchair with a Class I hitch because your maximum tongue weight is 200 pounds.

The best option to carry the electric wheelchair is by a trailer because...

For a ball mount you would want the part # C45522 and then for a ball part # C40001 for a -7/8 inch ball or part # C40018 for a 2 inch ball. For trailer wiring you would want to go with the # 56076.

For trailer wiring you'd then want the part # C59236 which is a confirmed fit. For a ball mount part # C45522, 2 inch ball part # C40018, or 1-7/8 inch ball # C40001.
