Video Transcript for B and W Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - BWBMHD30210 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the B and W heavy duty ball mount. Now, this ball mount inserts into your two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitch receiver. It does not require a reducer sleeve, so if your hitch opening is two and a half inches by two and a half inches, this will slide right into your hitch. It's a ball mount, so it lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle.As you can see, this is our ball mount platform. Does not come with the hitch ball, that item is sold separately. If you're interested or in need of one, we have multiple options here at eTrailer.com to choose from.

Basically, when you're ready to use this, the shank slides into the hitch on your vehicle. Ball platform provides a nine point for your hitch ball. When choosing a hitch ball, you want to ensure that the shank on the hitch ball does not exceed the measurement of the ball hole diameter; which on this mount is an inch and a quarter. That's the diameter of that threaded post on your hitch ball.This unit itself features a gross towing weight capacity of 16,000 pounds, and a tongue weight capacity of 1600 pounds. That information is located right here on the sticker.

Both drop and rise positions are available to ensure level towing. Right now, this is in the drop position. With it in the drop position, it offers a two inch drop. That's from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of the ball platform. You can flip it over and use it in the rise position.

It would provide about a one inch rise.Now, to determine the amount of drop or rise that you need for your application, pretty simple. You can just take two measurements, take a hitch height measurement, make sure your vehicle is on level ground. Measure from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch. Then, take a trailer coupler height measurement, measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your trailer, right where the ball connects. Track those two measurements, and that's going to give you the amount of drop or rise that you need for your particular vehicle and for your particular trailer set-up.The unit is made from a sturdy steel construction.

It's got a nice hollow shank design on it, as well as a corrosion resistant black powder coat finish. When you install this into your hitch, it does require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock to secure it. Those items are not included. They are sold separately and available at eTrailer.com if you need one. The pinhole diameter will accept a standard five-eighth inch diameter pin.Now, a few measurements I want to go over with you real quick. I did take a measurement from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of the hitch ball hole and got a measurement of eight and a half inches on this unit. The ball platform width, or the draw bar width, it's this area here. That measures three inches wide. That thickness is one inch thick. This product is made in the USA, and it's covered with a limited lifetime warranty.That's going to do it for today's look at the B and W heavy duty ball mount for two and a half inch hitches.

I was unable to find the correct size hitch in my small town, so I purchased the hitch, ball and pin from etrailer. The items were received in a timely maner and were securely packed. The hitch is well built and fits perfectly on my Ford F-250. Very pleased

Review from a similar Heavy Duty Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Although I had to exit about a month to receive this order, it was out eTrailers responsibility due to manufacturer back order. Once they got it, they wasted no time shipping it out. As far as the hitch goes, it fits perfectly in my 2 1/2” receiver. Pretty stout construction and more up to the task for towing my 4,300 lb boat and trailer. Customer service from eTrailer as always, the best.

Review from a similar Heavy Duty Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Good - except intended on using the ball mount with a Rock Tamer mudflap system. However the hitch pin location is to far foward ont eh ball mount to allow placement of the Rock Tamer mount between ball mount and truck receiver. Need the hole to be back another 5/8" to 3/4" back. Vehicle to be used on is a Chevy K3500HD - 1 ton pick-up

Review from a similar Heavy Duty Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


It took me a bit of experimentation to decide how much drop I needed for my 1-ton. Once I figured that out, this was the thing as I can't afford one of those adjustable models. Heavy Duty, well designed. So nice I bought a locking pin to protect it.

  • Recommended Ballmount for 2-1/2 inch Hitch Receiver, Hitch Ball and Sway Control Arm
    Our standard 2-1/2" ball mounts come in a 1 inch rise, like part # BWBMHD30210. I have included a FAQ about choosing the correct ballmount for you to check out. For a Hitch Ball with a 2-5/16" diameter you can use # C40008. This ball has a long shank and 20,000 lbs GTW. For a friction sway control system I recommend the Reese Friction Sway Control unit, part # 83660. This system can be used on the left or right side of the trailer.

  • Does the B&W Receiver Reducer Sleeve Reduce the Tongue Weight and Towing Capacity
    The short answer to this question is- No. The B&W Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve # BWRHXA2182 does not reduce the tongue weight or towing capacity of your hitch in the same manner that a hitch adapter like the # HTAD would. You will still be able to tow and carry the full capacity that your vehicle and hitch are rated at. While it is rated for towing, you would still be best served by using a ball mount for a 2-1/2" receiver since those are often rated properly for towing applications...

  • Needing High Capacity Ball Mount With 1 Inch Rise
    For a ball mount with a rise with a rating that meets or exceeds that of the Draw-Tite Class V # 41948 hitch, I'd recommend the # BWBMHD30210 from B&W. Unfortunately, none of the interchangeable ball sets we offer would be compatible with a high capacity ball mount like what you're looking for. I'd go with the # BWBMHD30210 with a # BWHB94050 trailer ball for your heavy duty needs, which would be good up to 16K and a lower rated ball mount like # 2923 and a ball set like # 901b.

  • 2 1/2 Inch Hitch Ball Mount And Shank For A 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    We have a few products that may be what you are looking for, the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve # C45405 will turn your 2 1/2" hitch opening, to a more standard 2" opening. We also offer standard ball mounts in 2 1/2" like # BWBMHD30210 which features a 1" rise and 2" drop and weighted for 16,000lbs GTW. Additionally, we have 2 1/2" adjustable shanks like # EQ90-02-4900 which feature a 10" rise and a 6" drop, and is also rated for 16,000lbs GTW.

  • Does The Rock Tamers Heavy-Duty, Adjustable Mud Flap System ERT00110 Require a Ball Mount?
    Yes, the Rock Tamers Heavy-Duty, Adjustable Mud Flap System for 2-1/2" Hitches # ERT00110 does require a 2-1/2" Ball Mount # BWBMHD30210 with at least 1" of space for the Hub # ERT057 to fit without any gussets. It will also fit with 2-1/2" adjustable ball mounts as long as you have the 1" space for the hub. I recommend using a BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # BL7023582 to secure the assembly in your receiver. This lock will key to your trucks ignition key so there is no need for carrying...
