Basically I bought this ball-mount after I installed the low-slung hitch receiver from ETRAILER to know I have an ability to haul something if really needed in an emergency situation. The receiver hitch was purchased for my Thule bicycle rack , purchased from Etrailer.


Works as advertised, owned and used weekly for over a year. Would highly recommend.


Awesome drop ball mount. The price was right and they shipped it to me quickly. Couldn't be happier with the service. Will definitely be a repeat customer!


This is a product I could not find anywhere else with this much drop.
It arrived swiftly and is a high quality hitch at a very good price.


Great products and wonderful service!


Installation picture


Excellent because it's the exact right height for my Tahoe's high hitch to get my utility trailer to ride level. Build quality was great, and delivery fast.


Inexpensive. Does the job for a small yard trailer. Do not use often enough to justify cost of an alloy one for less weight. If you are fitting and removing your unit to the tow vehicle on a regular basis then you probably will be happier with the alloy drop hitch which is way lighter but more $.


Had to get a 12" drop hitch to pull a very low-sitting trailer. Etrailer came through yet again! Picked up this hitch, ball mount, and factory wiring harness and they fit my needs to a T. Just what I needed, and had no issues putting anything together or hauling the tiny trailer.


Best $30 ball mount I ever bought. Needed a huge drop because my Ram2500 is lifted 6 inches. This mount allowed my jet ski trailer to be close to level...Etrailer is a wonderful company I buy all my trailering needs through them. I wish I could say the same for their shipper UPS who it took a week for them to get me my package even know I paid for fast shipping. They explained the package was temporarily lost.. I eventually did get my package..


I installed a 4" lift on my Jeep and needed a longer hitch receiver. After searching the Internet I came across eTrailer and they just what I needed. Great service and super fast shipping. Couldn't be happier with the hitch mount and the excellent customer service.


product shipped very fast. Was actually called and had my order changed by Etrailer staff to save me @ $30 in shipping fees since I needed the Item by a specific date.

Still good to go!


Have not had the opportunity to actually tow but this 11" drop puts my towbar almost level, the 12" drop would have been better however, I felt event that 1 inch more could cause problems with dips in driveway. what I liked was I did not lose weight capacity with this hitch


The drop hitch worked perfectly with the front hitch receiver to locate the ball at the perfect height. Parking a trailer in a tight location is easy using the front hitch.


This drop hitch is being used on a 3/4 ton ram 4x4 that had 24" from the hitch to the ground and will be pulling a small boat trailer thats only 13" off the ground. Haven't had a chance to use it yet but is very heavy duty and well made. E- trailer staff was great and shipping was fast.


Attached are the before and after photos of my truck/trailer after installing the 11" drop trailer hitch. As you can see there is a big difference in the drop which puts the trailer parallel to the ground. I can't wait to load it and see how it maneuvers going down the road at 55 mph.


I needed an 11 inch drop hitch and it turned out very hard to find, as soon as I found etrailers I found the one I needed very quickly, ordered it & it was at my house within 2 days, now I am pulling a trailer (level). I also messed up my shipping address during the online order, I called in and talked with a real person and they straightened the order out for me. I would recommend etrailer for all your trailer & towering needs.


This is a great hitch. Is exactly as it was shown to be. I have a receiver on the front of my vehicle and needed the ball to be higher so I am using this upside down from normal. It works perfectly for me .


Works well and as advertised


I recently purchased a boat & trailer that required a drop hitch to level the trailer. I found exactly what I needed on and made the purchase. The product received was exactly what I needed and the website was easy to use and very informative. The product was shipped immediately and the company followed up on the shipment to ensure that it was delivered. I am very pleased with the products purchased and service provided.


Is a great product will buy a thing I need for my trailers from

Chris P.


Product is awesome love


Not much to really go wrong with a hitch draw bar. Welds look good. It's the proper height for what I needed with such a low hanging hitch to get the rise I needed for my small 3-rail motorcycle trailer.


Fast shipping and product is as it should be. Works wonderfully.


Works as advertised. Best if combined with a "quiet-hitch" type mechanism to reduce the extra play in the system if it's just slid into place and held there with the hitch pin.


I bought this ball mount to use in the rise position on my front hitch. I fits precisely the way I had hoped to enable me to push my boat up a steep driveway into my garage.

  • Is Shank of Hidden Hitch # 80248 11 Inch Drop Ball Mount Hollow or Solid Steel
    The shank portion of the Hidden Hitch # 80248 ball mount is hollow 2 inch steel tube. The ball mount is rated for 3500 lbs towing/350 lbs tongue weight when used in the rise position, or 5000 lbs towing/500 lbs tongue weight when used in the drop position. You can get a better look at the ball mount by viewing the video I've linked for you.

    If you have a 2-inch hitch we offer fixed ball mount # 80248 that offers 9-3/4-inches of rise. This ball mount is rated for 5000-lbs trailer weight. If you have a 2-1/2-inch hitch we also have ball mounts in that size. Two helpful links are included that will help you choose the right ball mount for your application.

  • Recommendation for a Trailer Ball Mount with an 11 Inch Drop For a Motor Home Towing a Tow Dolly
    The Hidden Hitch Ball Mount, # 80248, with the 11 inch drop would be a good choice. The 11 inch drop will put you right about where you need to be (14 inches from the ground). It will actually be a little higher at 14.5 inches but the tongue weight from the tow dolly should take care of that. I have included a link to our FAQ article on choosing the right ball mount for reference. Keep in mind that this ball mount is rated for 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 500 pounds tongue weight....

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 9-1/2 inch Rise
    Between the two ball mount options referenced in your question, I recommend going with the Convert-A-Ball # AMSC12 that has the larger 10-3/4 inch rise. This is because when loading your tow vehicle up for a trip with your trailer, there is bound to be some rear sag that will lower the ball mount even further. Choosing a ball mount with a slightly higher rise than you need will help to account for this. Another option you may consider is the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 80248 that has a 9-3/4...

  • Ball Mount Replacement for 12 inch Drop and Trailer Sits 1 inch Too Low
    We have 12 inch drops and we have 14 inch drop ball mounts but we do not have a 13 inch. Going an inch lower would be better than an inch higher though. But you did say that the 12 inch drop put your trailer 1 inch lower than that your hitch so that would mean you would want an 11 inch drop instead like the part # 80248.

  • Troubleshooting Camper Trailer that Sways Towed by Jeep Wrangler
    You'd have a pretty low amount of ground clearance based on the drop you need and your trailer's coupler height but to prevent the type of sway you are experiencing you'd actually need to address something else. The type of trailer sway you described is caused by not having enough tongue weight typically or the trailer tongue sitting too high. So if you can move weight forward in your trailer and allow it to sit level you'd have taken care of the problem. It will help to have a ball...

  • Trailer Hitch and 10 inch Rise Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2008 Chevy Equinox
    You would need a 10 inch rise ball mount with the Curt hitch part # 13591 to tow your trailer level. For that you would need the part # 80248. For a 2 inch ball you would need part # 63845 or for a 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19260.

  • Can Hitch Extender be Used with Ball Mount to Clear Rear Bumper
    A hitch extension like the Curt # C45791 can be used to gain the bumper clearance needed for the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 80248 that you mentioned but there is an important thing to keep in mind when using this or any other adapter. When the adapter/extension is in place your trailer hitch capacity will be reduced by 50 percent. This just means if the hitch on your Odyssey has a 3,500 pound towing capacity and a 350 pound tongue weight capacity these limits will be reduced to 1,750 and 175...

  • Availability of Ball Mount with 10 inch Rise for Class I Trailer Hitch on 2005 Jeep Liberty
    The highest rise on a ball mount we currently offer that is compatible with a Class I trailer hitch is the Curt # C45028, which has a rise of 5-3/8 inches. Higher rise ball mounts are only compatible with higher rated hitches. If you need this additional rise to tow your trailer level with your 2005 Jeep Liberty, I recommend changing to a Class III trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Max Frame # 75128. This will give you a tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds and a towing weight capacity...

    To even out the height difference between your CR-V's hitch opening and the coupler on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 you will need a ball mount with rise, or height increase, as described in the linked article. Based on your measurement you will want a 2-inch ball mount with about 10-inches of rise. We offer Hidden Hitch ball mount # 80248 that will fit your 2-inch hitch and provide 9-3/4-inches of rise.

  • Best Fixed Ball Mount Option for Motorhome and Tow Dolly Compatibility with 10-11 Inch Drop
    The Draw-Tite Ball Mount - 9-3/4" Rise, 11" Drop - 9" Long - 3,500 to 5,000 lbs # 80248 will bring your hitch height to 14 or 15 inches to match your tow dolly. The ball mount is rated for up to 5,000 lbs n the drop position so you simply need to use a hitch ball rated for 3,750 lbs or more. I recommend the 2 inch ball # 63845 or the 2-5/16 inch ball # 63847 depending on which matches your coupler. Both are rated for 7,500 lbs so they will work well. The Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount...

  • Fixed Trailer Hitch Ball Mount Needed That Has 12" Of Drop
    If you're after a more traditional fixed ball mount, the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # AMSC12 will work if your trailer coupler is 26" and your receiver height is 14". This ball mount provides 12" of drop, 10-3/4" of rise, and 7,500-lbs of gross towing weight. If it's greater than 26", I recommend the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-316.

  • Can a Roadmaster High-Low Adapter be Used with a Kawasaki Mule for Off-the-Road Towing
    If the trailer has a regular coupler that fits on a ball then the best solution is a ball mount with the proper rise. I really cannot recommend using any of the High-Low adapters for anything other than flat towing a vehicle, even if it could work. But it sound like a ball mount with the proper rise is the ideal solution. The ball mount we have with the most rise is # AMSC12. It has 10-3/4 inches rise. But something like # 80248 with 9-3/4 inches might be better. I have included a link...

  • Will the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 80248 Clear the Bumper on a 2016 Jeep Renegade.
    I contacted my tech contact at Curt and the distance from the hitch pin hole on the Curt # C13269 hitch to the bumper is 4-1/2". The center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the gusset on the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 80248 is 5-3/4" which means this ball mount sticks out enough to where it will not hit the bumper on your 2016 Jeep Renegade in the rise or drop position.

What you can do instead is attach a fixed ball mount, and the Draw-Tite # 80248 is going to give you 9-3/4" of rise.
