I use this hitch when I pull my horse trailer to make the stop/start transitions as smooth as possible for the horses in the back. It works great. I also love that its a category IV hitch. Really heavy duty. My truck sits pretty high, and the amount of drop - 8" is perfect. I never worry about hitch failure travelling with my horses - they're a heavy load, and any failure would be a disaster.
E Trailer provided excellent service, and their shipping to Canada was prompt and hassle free. Way to go guys, keep up the great work!


I have a 2012 GMC Sierra HD with a 12" suspension lift. I recently purchased a ball mount hitch with 8" inch drop for our 36' RV trailer and it worked great. It took 3 days for the hitch to get to me. Great service from e-trailer.


After having trouble finding the right drop height and weight rating receiver for my new Ford Expedition Max, I called etrailer and Ashley was awesome in helping me as I needed something quickly. I've just travelled 1200 miles interstate with the "Convert-A-Ball" unit and I'm thrilled with it. The mount cushions the movement and had zero jolts or tugging with the trailer. Great product so far and at this stage I wouldn't use anything else!



This has been truly amazing and I wouldn’t use anything else towing these days. I’ve recommended the mount to a lot of people who tow who have never heard of it or seen it before. Great job!


Excellent quality. Ordering was easy and delivery was fast. Looks like the perfect amount of drop for my jeep to keep trailers level.


I have a 2011 Dodge diesel 3500. I tow a large horse trailer and haul heavy loads of hay on a flat bed trailer...I need a hitch with large towing capacity and strong tongue weight...I looked locally and was not able to find one with an 8 inch drop. My truck is 4 x 4 and has air bags in the rear...I needed an 8 inch drop to keep my trailer level... The hitch I got from Etrailer is just what I was looking for and gives me assurance that I will not be over loading my hitch..

Al M.


The 8 inch deop cushoned ball hitch I got is working just great. I have had no problems at all and am very happy with it.. Thanks, Al M


A well made product, works as expected. The anti vibration is a great addition.


Bought a new 4X4 pickup and old ball mount was too high. This cushioned ball mount was just what I needed. I measured the drop per e-trailers guide and it came out perfect. The new ball had a 1" shank that fits tightly in the ball mount and the new pin allows any alignment of the clip which is real handy. The pin was about 1" longer than it needed to be but makes it easy to slide my breakaway cable on it. I tow two different trailers, 1500 & 2700 pounds, so I have lots of margin with this mount and ball.


I love this hitch!
It took 100% of the
annoying trailer bumping and tugging that you feel when pulling a trailer. I have a 2012 tahoe and pull a 1000 pound trailer frequently, after getting this hitch I sometimes forget im pulling a trailer.


I wanted my truck and cargo trailer to ride level. This drop down hitch worked perfect. The cushioned trailer hitch receiver was an added benefit. The UPS tracking feature was fun to watch as the package traveled from town to town. I will give you folks an A+++ for quality and service. Thanks for the personal touch in your E-mail inquiry. Awesome Possum


Excellent product. Basically eliminates any shock and hitch rattle when towing my boat.

Mike M.


A year has passed and the hitch is still performing as new. Buy it and solve your problem once and for all.


I have been looking for an 8 inch drop Class IV draw bar for my motor home to get my car trailer to pull level during a 1500 mile trip to Oshkosh, WI. None could be found with the weight rating required. Andrea C. at was very helpful, ordered exactly what I needed and the parts were delivered to a campground where I was staying safe and complete. My order was delivered in 2 days, the order was complete and in perfect condition. I would suggest you go on-line or give them a call for any trailer parts or accessories you might need. Thumbs up!


Nothing complicated here. Ball mount works as advertised. Good price, fast delivery.


I needed a 10,000 lb. rated hitch with an 8" drop to tow my car trailer and this hitch fit the bill. I LOVE the cushioned mount system! Another winner from


Owned for 1 year, it has been reliable and no issues. Happy about the availability of various drop sizes. I’m not sure that the cushion makes a huge difference on light trailers. I have one of these for my boat and I think it makes a bigger difference than for my light snowmobile trailer.


This ball mount is a beast. It may be a little overkill for my little trailer, but better safe than sorry. Hooking a small camper to a Nissan Pathfinder required an 8" drop and this fit the bill perfectly.
Extremely sturdy unit and the shipping was fast. Ordered it Friday and received it the following Tuesday. Not impressive until you add the fact that I'm In Calgary AB and it came from MO. That's fast.
I've ordered many things from etrailer and the service has always been exceptional.


This product and company is very good. Ask you would like and expect. On this particular ball mount; I couldn't attach my Anti-rattle bracket due to the triangular brace on the underside of it interferes. Using it in my 2004 F350. I'll try again to figure something out but an not willing to cut into it modify anything on this back mount which would compromise it.


This ball mount was EXACTLY what i have been searching for! I was searching for months to find something with this big of drop and the right weight ratio and was not been able to find it until i found it on this website and i COULDNT HAVE BEEN HAPPIER! Exactly what i needed to pull my horse trailer. Very accurate discription and fast shipping!
thanks so much!


Paula and etrailer are great! I needed a higher rise hitch and Paula was great to help me return the one I purchased and get the right one ordered!!!! Thank you!!!


Hitch fits and works great. Excellent price AND free shipping to boot. Good thing because this hitch is heavy duty. Tech support was also helpful when I needed them.


Placed a 6 inch lift under my 350 Ford, found these 8 and 10 inch drop hitches to be of great quality and good value. The order shipped free and only took 3 days to receive. Great company that I will inform my friends of and use in the future. Thanks !


After carefully considering all the options, I went with the cushioned ball mount. I was pleased with the excellent shipping and quality of the product - exactly as advertised. I am anxious to get this ball mount into use on my truck with a car hauler trailer. Thanks to etrailer for a great online shopping experience - I will be coming back for sure.


perfect drop for my trailer. Good distance from truck and strong,



1 year later and its great. Super solid. Been using the heck out of it too,


Great quality ,Made in USA, Right out of the box you could tell this was a quality piece.. The cushion system helps out especially when towing a heavier trailer when you stop and start.. was a pleasure to do business with.


Awesome product and great customer service. I received a notification every step of the way to let me know that the product I ordered was available and would be shipped shortly and again when it shipped. Received my mount a day ahead of schedule. Will definitely buy from again.


The ball mount I purchased was exactly as described. etrailer does an excellent job in presenting the products they sell, and the selection is the best on the web.

    The Malone Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock System, # MPG908, would work well with your Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount, # AMSC8. The Malone anti-rattle device will help stop the unwanted movement between the ball mount and your vehicle's receiver hitch. However, by using an anti-rattle device on this ball mount you will loose most of the cushioned function of the your ball mount.

  • 8 Inch Drop Ball Mount with Longer Shank for Attachment of Towing Bike Rack

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.

  • Will a Cushioned Ball Mount Work with Surge Trailer Brakes
    The cushion inside of the Convert-A-Ball cushioned ball mount # AMSC4 would have only a slight affect on the surge coupler on your trailer. You may not even notice it. The cushion is very dense and the more pressure that is put on it the firmer it gets. It would take more force to compress that cushion than to actuate the surge coupler.

  • Recommendation to Help Back and Forth Movement in Trailer Hitch While Towing
    To help alleviate the back and forth chucking you are experiencing with your 2 inch receiver there are a couple of things I recommend doing.

I will list the different rise and drop available for this ball mount below....

    I attached a help article on how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount so that you can tow your trailer level. For an 8 inch drop ball mount Cushioned part # AMSC8 would be a great choice. The customers who have reviewed this ball mount all love it so I am confident you will too. For a 2 inch ball you would need the part # 40038, for a 2-5/16 inch ball part # C40007, and for a 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19260.
