Product arrived quickly, the price was right, and the customer service by Paula S. Was super! The mount is well made and appears to be very durable. The welds are very well done and there is very little “play” in the adjustable ball mount. Bonus-mount came with 2 pins and safety clips.

Thanks etrailer for another great buying experience.


I bought this hitch for my 2013 Ford Edge cause the boat trailer looked like it was riding a little low. This fit perfectly and cleared the bumper with no problem. Easy adjusting too!


Just received the product itself - haven't used it to tow, but confirmed that it mounts to our hitch and adjusts as expected and all is as it should be.
The best part about my experience with this order was the excellent customer service I received from the eTrailer team. I had ordered a different adjustable ball mount, but I was contacted by the eTrailer team to let me know that it would not be available until September, which would have been too late for what I need. The representative offered an alternate mount and answered my questions about it when we spoke on the phone. I agreed to replace what I had originally ordered with the recommended replacement. After we got off the phone, I not only got confirmation of the modified order, but was told that they had expedited the shipping so that I would have it in a few days (which I did). I have ordered from eTrailer previously and each time everything has been exactly as expected. I'd highly recommend doing business with this company, which clearly gets the importance of great customer service.

After owning this product for a year it continues to meet all of my expectations.

Used maxx tow adjustable height ball mount hitch with 2 inch and 2 5/16 inch balls also ordered from etrailer. It worked well with no issues. Adjustments were easy. Came in very handy when needed. Free and prompt shipping was a big plus.


Really like this product. I like the fact that you increase or lower the height without having to remove the portion that goes into the hitch.


Excellent CS.Great “how to”video.


Fast and cheap!


Great mount with none of the extra stuff I didn’t need. I rent my travel out and this mount allows for easy adjustment no matter the renter’s vehicle height.

Great. I rent my trailer and I let renters use my hitch because it’s adjustable. Love it. It works great.
John S - 08/19/2020


This adjustable height trailer hitch allowed me to set the height of the ball mount to 16.5 inches off the ground to match my bass boat trailer hitch perfectly. I do not plan on adjusting it to other heights, so I replaced the hitch pin with a grade 8 bolt with nylock nut to fix it to the height I need.


The information on your website and online help is very good. I ordered a product, made a mistake (my fault), called to ask if I could cancel and change my problem...fantastic service! I received my new order much sooner than I expected. See you again soon.


The whole experience with Kim at etrailer was excellent. I have very little epxerience with trailers as in none. This is the first time I've purchased one. After struggling to find both the information and products I needed on a variety of sites, one call to etrailer and Kim configured the adjustable hitch, correct ball, and a hitch lock to secure the hitch literally in a matter of minutes. The shipment arrived three days later and works like a charm. Great experience. Great product. Great service. Nice job!


I needed 2 inch hitch ball mount with at least a 6 inch rise. This worked perfectly. It came with two pins. It will be used to two my boom lift with my RTV; it has worked well so far.


This is a straight forward product. Easily fit with my Curt 2 inch hitch for 2010 Sienna. Since I don't know how high my usage application will be, I bought this adjustable ball hitch. Now it will fit and level my load perfectly every time. Also the Sienna has a lower hitch height, I will only use this adjustable ball hitch in the rise position. With 6.25 inch adjustable height, I'm sure this will service many of my various needs! Great product!


Looks sturdy - haven’t tried it yet



DAN H - 08/16/2015


Product arrived quicker than I expected it is exactly as shown on web site.customer service while ordering was as always Great.This is why my first choice for trailer and hitch needs is etrailer.


It is working well for me right now. Gives me the choice to raise or lower for clearance when going in and out of deep pitch drive ways, which keep my trailer stand from scraping the concrete.


This ball mount is perfect for my Tacoma. The receiver is quite low and the adjust-ability of this insert fits the bill. The quick shipping is also a reason for a 5-star rating on the product and company as well.


This hitch is well made and handled towing or trailer nicely. The adjustments for drop and rise are great.


I purchased this hitch to level our RV while towing. It allows me to set the ball at the height I need so the RV is level on the road. The quality is very high.


Bought this for my Son's RAM. I have one on mine and it has always performed flawlessly.
I like the face that you can reverse the mount to increase or decrease the height.
I would reccomend this product to anyone.


The install was super easy after watching the videos. We used it frequently on group camping trips to haul all our gear and our families gear. I am was happy that I got to install it myself.


The order came in two days. Amazing. Great customer service.


The MT70068 hitch works great. The flexibility of adjustment solves the problem of towing different trailers at a level stance.


Just like everything else I have ordered from etrailer it came in quick and exactly what I ordered. These people are great and have everything you need for towing. This is the only place I shop.

  • Are Adjustable Ball Mounts Available For Class l Hitches With 1-1/4 Inch Receiver Opening
    Unfortunately, we do not offer any adjustable ball mounts designed to fit a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening at this time. We do have several ball mounts that have varied rise and drop but none that are adjustable like the Maxxtow # MT70068 you referenced. If you are looking for a mount that has just a couple of height adjustments you can check out the attached product page.

  • What is Distance from Center of Hitch Pin Hole to Upright on MaxxTow Ball Mount MT70068
    The MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount, Part # MT70068, has a distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright of 8-1/8 inches. This part includes both a 1/2-inch pin and clip to secure the ball mount, and a 5/8-inch pin and clip to secure the shank in your 2 x 2 inch hitch receiver. I have provided a link to a video review of this item and a drawing with several key measurements indicated.

  • Why Aren't Adjustable Ball Mounts Made for 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitch
    I really wish we did, but we do not have any adjustable ball mounts that fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch like the # MT70068 that you referenced. The added length and leverage of the adjustable ball mounts is why they aren't made for the lighter duty 1-1/4 inch hitch size. You'd have to go with a fixed ball mount with the correct rise/drop. I attached a help article that covers how to pick this out as well.

  • Inside Tube Size of MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount MT70068

  • Does Longer Shank of MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount MT70068 Affect Capacity of Hitch
    The MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount part # MT70068 does come with a pretty long shank. But the only real thing at risk will be your shins. The added length does put a bit more leverage on the hitch, but it does not negatively affect the capacity of the hitch. In a lot of situations where a short trailer is being towed adding length can make it easier to back up.

  • Is Weight Capacity Lowered When Using MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount MT70068
    There is no change in the weight capacity of the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount, part # MT70068 when the height is changed. This ball mount has a 5,000-lb capacity whether it is in the 7-1/2 inch drop or 6-1/4 inch rise position. This ball mount is designed to work with a 2-inch trailer hitch receiver opening.

  • Long Ball Mount Recommendation for 6-1/2 inches of Rise to Clear Subaru Bumper
    Best option will be the MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount # MT70068 which will have the clearance and will work well to tow your trailer level. This does not have a reputation as having a wobble problem either. Especially if you were to use it with an anti-rattle device like the part # 63232 which will do a great job keeping it tight to the hitch tube.

  • Choosing a Ball Mount with the Right Drop to Tow a Trailer Level with a 2004 Chevy Tahoe
    Since you had them measure to the top of the coupler and not the bottom, the trailer will actually be a little lower than the vehicle by however tall the coupler is from the point they measured it. Those rental trailers are usually fairly low too. But since nothing is certain the best option is an adjustable ball mount such as # MT70068 rated for 5,000 pounds. This ball mount has a maximum rise of 6-1/4 inches, minimum of 1-3/4 inches, and maximum drop of 7-1/2 inches, minimum of 3 inches....

    I went out to the warehouse and took the measurements you are needing on Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 76028. From the top of the center plate that attaches to the vehicle to the top of the receiver opening it is 2-3/4 inches. From the center of the mounting holes on that plate straight out to the center of the pin hole is 2-1/2 inches. I made a picture showing this. On average with this hitch installed the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening is 14-1/2 inches. Since you...

  • Which Ball Mount Should go With Curt Hitch C13382 on 2018 Subaru Crosstrek?
    We haven't yet been able to do a test fit on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with Curt hitch # C13382, so the exact measurement from the top of the hitch to the ground is not yet known. Based on the 13 inches from ground to coupler on your trailer and recent heights from the Crosstrek and it's Impreza brethren, you can use the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount # MT70068. This mount does come with a pin and clip though you'd need 2" hitch ball # 40038 to go with it. I've added a link to a video...

  • Adjustable 2-Inch Ball Mount to Allow More Clearance for Garaging Boat Trailer
    It sounds like you need a ball mount with more than 3-inches of drop to allow your boat's windshield to clear the bottom of your open garage door as you move the trailer inside. If I understand things correctly it is just the combination of the windshield's height and the driveway's angle that are the issue. I suggest an adjustable 2-inch ball mount. One of these will allow you to lower the ball and therefore also the trailer's tongue when you need to garage the boat and trailer and then...

    The MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop, 6-1/4" Rise - 5,000 lb # MT70068 would be a perfect option for your Subaru Outback towing a trailer that needs 6" rise, and another trailer that needs 2" rise as the rise is adjustable between 6-1/4" to 1-3/4". Since adjustable shank uses the standard 5/8" pin and is hollow you can absolutely use the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span # 63232 you were looking at to get rid of any rattling.

For your 2016 Tiguan I would recommend the hitch part # 75658. Which when we installed this hitch we found that it measured 15-3/4 inches from the top of the opening down to the ground.
