This hitch is a solid addition to our towing equipment. We use this hitch with our F-150 to tow our Apex Nano trailer. We ordered the hitch from eTrailer as they always have the right equipment for the job. It was delivered on the day promised. eTrailer is a trusted advisor for anything related to towing equipment or wiring.

Excellent. It is the best hitch we have owned. Solid steel means more control when we tow our trailer. It stores perfectly in our truck toolbox when not in service.
Steve R - 06/26/2021


I had a great experience ordering from you. Your organization kept me
completely up to date with the order & shipping process and delivered the exact products I ordered. Attached is a photo of the 16,000 lbs capacity hitch and 30,000 lbs 2 5/16 ball you sold me in use. The boat and trailer total about 12,000 pounds. Thanks again.


I had no idea a regular old slide receiver ball mount wouldn't work for for my trailer. It turns out that my old reese ball mount from Wal-Mart was underrated and thus cracked within 2" of the ball. Thanks etrailer for making hitch grade easy to understand and potentially saving me and my family's life.


WOW! I wanted to purchase a really strong ball mount and this one exceeds my expectations! I also purchased in my order the folding wheel chocks which were made of metal. My plan is to mount those permanently on my car hauler trailer so that when I put the car on, I just drive up against these chocks. This makes loading my car super easy. I really like doing business with etrailer because every order I’ve ever placed his arrived quickly and been with products that are excellent quality.


I was at a farm meeting and university rep. was pointing out the dangers in hauling trailers without proper hitch assemblies.The local hardware chains do not have products made for heavy farm trailers.You guys do have all the equipment anyone needs for this type of hauling.Was happy to correct my light setup before something bad happened.Ignorance is not bliss.

Very happy with the product and the confidence knowing the hitch is well engineered to handle any load I hook to it
Tim - 07/22/2014


Bought one of the same ball mounts for another vehicle. Didn't see a reason to change what was working. The only change I made was flipping it over and using it as a 1" rise instead of a 2" drop mount.


I needed a 2 inch drop for my tandem axle trailer to ride correctly but I could not find a ball mount locally to fit my application. An etrailer customer service team member pulled this item from their warehouse, took a couple measurements over the phone to assure me of a correct fit, and shipped it that afternoon. I pulled the trailer last weekend and this solid ball mount from Draw-Tite did the trick.

If you have a question, just call 'em. Thanks etrailer!


Needed a stronger ball mount for pulling my stock trailer. This one is perfect. The original I had dropped too much as well. But, be careful, this is one heavy chunk of forged steel.

Everything is working magnificently. Thank you for checking up with me.
Matthew W - 10/13/2018


The forged ball mount is exactly what I wanted, very heavy duty. I also bought a hitch ball and trailer hitch receiver lock. Thank you etrailer for great products at a great price and very fast shipping!!!


It does the job.


1" rise

Not sure what else to put, if you need something this heavy duty, then it works. If you only need a 6K hitch, it'll work for that too.

16K bumper pull is insane. My total truck and trailer is 13800, so better to have excess capacity than be near or over.

2" " />


This ball mount is not your typical square stock, it is a solid piece of steel and heavy! I am using it with a class 4 Curt hitch. It fits well into receiver and ball mount nicely without excessive play.


A great product , from a great company! I will be telling many people I know about this site and staff interaction!...( my box arrived when they said it would ! was on time, but the box was a little beat up, and the hardware was missing out of it,...I called, and the service department was happy to send a replacement!...thank you!)


Solid one piece of steel and coated. No welding. Also can use it as a high hitch or low hitch with approx 3 inch difference. Works great for my trailer rv


Hitch looks good. One issue that I think may be something to think about. The hitch that I ordered is rated @ 16,000. There is no where on the hitch that the weight is stamped. This could be problematic when I get inspected by the DOT and have to try and convenience them that the hitch is rated for the 14,000 # trailer that it is connected to.


I've made about 5 purchases from etrailer over the past couple of years , and their prices have been excellent . No company which I have ever dealt with , matches their fast service. Etrailer puts most companies to shame , when it comes to speedy , friendly service. If they have what I want , they'll always have my business.


I bought this knowing it exceeds my trucks tow rating, but I wanted the extra peace of mind knowing I have double the protection. It is solid hitch that will outlast me.


I recently purchased a larger boat (approx. 8,000 lb with trailer and gear) and needed a heavier duty ball mount. No complaints....the ball mount is solid and does its job.


Great heavy duty hitch!


Awesome customer service! They upgraded my shipping for free so I got my hitch sooner than expected. This was the most affordable place I could find this either locally or on the internet. Will be using etrailer nextime I have any trailer needs at all.


I use this when pulling heavy fertilizer spreaders behind my truck. It is not unusual to have 8000lbs on a spreader. My Coop manager says it it sht heaviest hitch he has ever seen around here.


The forged trailer ball mount was heavy duty good. It is very solid and wont worry about any overload issues with this. Thanks


This has to be the mother of all Ball Mounts! Very pleased with purchase and the excellent shipping. Will hook up with etrailer again when needed.
Thanks Guys


This item is really stout, and will give peace of mind when towing my 10,000 pound boat and trailer.

I appreciate that you take the time to follow up on past reviews and commend you for your interest in doing so. I can report that I am still completely satisfied with the products and the service from

    It sounds like maybe you are looking for just a ball mount to go along with a hitch that you have installed on your 2007 Toyota Tundra.

  • Is a Ball Mount Spacer Available for a Hitch Ball with a 1 Inch Diameter Shank
    To use the Curt 2 Inch Trailer Ball, # 40038, with the Draw-Tite Forged Ball Mount, # 40330, you will want to use the Reese Hitch Ball Bushing, # 58184. This will not reduce the towing or tongue weight capacity of the hitch ball or the ball mount, but you will be limited to the 12,000 lb towing capacity of the hitch ball since it is the lowest rated component.

    Yes, you will need reducer bushing # RP80106. It was designed for forged ball mounts that are 1 inch thick like # 40330. Using this bushing will allow you to use a ball with a 1 inch diameter shank.

Another ball mount that uses a 1-1/4 inch ball shank is part # 40331. This features a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop. We do not offer an adjustable ball mount that can accommodate a hitch ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank.

  • Higher Capacity Ball Mount Recommendation for Chevy Truck Towing 7,000 lb Trailer
    If your trailer weighs 7,000 lbs and you have a ball mount with a 5,000 lb capacity you will need to upgrade to a higher capacity ball mount like the part # C45341 that you referenced. Then for a hitch ball you would need the part # 63840 which is a 2-5/16 inch ball with a 20k capacity that will fit the ball mount. You will need to ensure that you go with a ball mount that has the right amount of rise/drop to tow your trailer level too. I attached a help article that covers that as well.

Which is very close. Since you have a 2 inch hitch your best option would be a 2 inch hitch ball like the part # A-90 and a ball mount like the # 40330 for if you need a 1 inch rise or 2 inch drop.

  • Can the End of a Ball Mount Be Trimmed Down to Fit in a Trailer Hitch on a 1999 GMC Yukon
    Part of what gives ball mount # 40330 its capacity is the amount of material inside of the receiver. By trimming it down it makes the capacity unknown and could compromise the structural integrity of the ball mount. Also, it is a solid steel shank so trimming it is no small task! The best option is a new ball mount that is a better fit. I recommend B&W ball mount # BWBMHD30010.

The ball mount will have some play when mounted to the hitch because of the difference in tolerances between the shank of the ball mount and the receiver opening. Both may be within specs but up to a certain tolerance, one may be within the tolerance but on the high side, and the other in spec on the low side. Yes,...
