Video Transcript for Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount Review

Hello neighbors. It's Brad here at etrailer. And today, we're taking a look at the CURT heavy-duty forged ball mount for the 2 1/2 inch hitches. Now, this is gonna have a 2 5/16 ball with a two inch drop or a half inch rise. Now, as far as capacities go, this is a pretty heavy-duty ball mount. In fact, this has a gross trailer weight rating of nearly 20,000 pounds and a tongue weight of 2,000.

So, if you have a heavy-duty trailer, this is gonna match that trailer and be able to tow it with no problem. Speaking of heavy-duty, this is also solid steel construction. The ball is also steel with a chrome plated finish. Now, the ball mount itself has a nice carbide black powder coat finish in a nice matte color. So, over time, it's gonna look great and hold up to that road grime and salt.

And so, it should prevent that rust and corrosion from building up long-term. Now, we have it hooked up to a 2 5/16 coupler here and that's what it actually comes with. The ball is pretorqued, so that's really nice. You don't have to worry about getting a torque wrench that has the specs to be able to tighten this as well as the socket that's gonna a fit on there. Now, if you do wanna swap it out for a different size ball, you can also do that.

You just wanna make sure that the ball that you pick up is gonna have that inch and a quarter diameter. Now, this trailer coupler does sit up higher than a normal trailer and so does our truck. So, this two inch drop is gonna be the perfect drop for it, allowing our trailer to level out. Now, if your truck or trailer combination requires a larger rise or drop, there's actually plenty of different options available through CURT here at etrailer. Now, when you're ready to install your ball mount on your vehicle, simply slide it into the 2 1/2 inch hitch, put your pin and clip through, and you're gonna be ready to hook up to your trailer and tow.

Now, something I'm gonna point out is it does not come with the pin and clip, unfortunately. But we do have plenty of options here available at etrailer, including walking ones. And that's gonna be really nice because you can leave this on your truck and not have to worry about this leaving in the hands of someone else. So now, we're ready to lower our trailer down on here, get hooked up and tow. But before we do that, just make sure that even though this is rated for 20,000 pounds, that you're not exceeding the vehicle's towing capacity or your hitch's towing capacity. With everything all hooked up, we're ready to tow. And that was a look at the CURT heavy-duty forged ball mount for 2 1/2 inch hitches with the 2 5/16 ball, a two inch drop or a half inch rise..

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


Joshua K, the Customer Service Rep with whom I called in and spoke with gets a bazillion stars. The online description doesn’t include if it is qualified to give rise or not.

Josh checked through the product description and figured I could remove the ball, invert it (and recalibrate) and get 5“ of rise. Josh assured me after checking my zipcode that even when selecting free shipping I would have it by the weekend. I ordered on Tuesday morning and it arrived Thursday - 2 days later!

I unpacked the box and was pleased to read that it is qualified for 5“ rise. Very assuring since I wasn’t sure and trailering can be stressful as is.

I really appreciate Joshua K’s customer service. Thanks for making this an efficient and pleasant experience!

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


Heavy duty and ball mounted saves me the hassle. The new F350’s are taller and had to make adjustments for the cargo trailer and 5th wheel. I can count on etrailer to have what I need.

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


Exactly what you would expect. A massive chuck of metal for use in a 3 inch receiver without hte need for reducers and the issue and rattling they can cause. Sure, and adjustable may be more versatile if you have multiple trailers of different heights, but they are 3 times the cost, or more.

I already have one for my camper ball and needed another for my other trailers so I wouldn’t have to switch’s balls on the mount all the time….. now I just pull the pin and swap out the whole thing

Perfect, just what I want for heavy duty. Fast delivery at a very good price.
having the ball installed from etrailer is the way to go. Need to pack the box with some stuffing so the weight doesn't move around in shipping.

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


I tried twice to get this hitch and ball from [online vendor]. Twice the shipment was lost and I had to get a refund. Shipment from etrailer is right the first time and arrived quickly. Plus, since the ball is already torqued on the ball mount, I don't need to by a large socket.




by:

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


I t looks like an excellent product but I will have to return it (no fault of yours) because it is not the right hitch for my trailer and I have no other use for it. The person who sold me the trailer gave me the equipment that works for it so I am returning your product.

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


Arrived sooner than expected. A very sturdy hitch with pin. I especially appreciate having the rounded edges where we frequently walk at the back of the SUV. 4" drop is correct to match my truck and trailer hitch height on my Subaru Ascent.

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


I was looking for a heavy duty ball mount for use in pulling my bumper pull cattle trailer. The mount kit I found on your website was just what I wanted, in stock and the price was reasonable. It fit my truck and the height was perfect.

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


We’ve already installed it and hitched up the horse trailer. Works great for my needs. Half the weight of the much heavier weight distribution system we had been using (and will continue to use for Interstate travel). Hook up was fast and easy.
