Was needing a 7-8 inch ride for my camper that could sustain a GVW of at least 5000 lbs. Let me say, it’s a hard to find item. Thankfully I called Etraer and with some research, found me the perfect ball mount. It’s heavy duty for a reasonable price.

Still perfect!

I had to flip this upside down and put a hitch ball on this to get it to work with my Dodge Journey and my camper. It's held up without issue for a half-dozen camper pulls. I wish the paint hadn't already started flaking off at the receiver end, but that's to be expected when you connect metal to metal. The other parts of this haven't started flaking yet after a year so hopefully it continues to hold up.

My boat was dragging on the boat ramps and this solved the problem. A very quality product

Very sturdy, very happy with purchase.

This is a great drop hitch for my lfted truck, very great experience dealing with Etrailer in all aspects of my order, will definitely order everything I can from them in the future.



by:

Items arrived on time and quick. Great company

No problems



by:

It fir the purpose perfectly.



by:

The hitch was able to perform as I had intended it to. However instead of using it as a drop I am using it as a rise and it would have been better if I had a 10 inch rise. I am using a front hitch (which I also got from etrailer) to maneuver a trailer into a tight parking space.

Best price I could find!

First, I appreciate William, and his customer relations skills. He's very pro customer! Many sales reps that I have dealt with don't have a clue of just how valuable a customer is.

The product itself is fine. However, it was abused during shipping, leaving dings on it. The shipping box arrived almost destroyed. The ball mount itself is good quality, heavy, and solid.

I see that your hitch has received some scratches on it due to shipping. This does tend to happen and when it does, we recommend using a Rust-oleum type paint to cover up any scratches and prevent corrosion in the future during use. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them to better assist you. I have a link below for your reference.

completely satisfied , good shipping, good products . I use the 2 inch hitch and 2 inch ball about every week on my jeep grand cherokee . I use the trailer dolly to park the utility trailer behind the shed.by using the trailer dolly I don't have to drive the jeep on the lawn. (sorry I don't have pictures to send.)

Great. Even after I purchased a different truck, I was able to make it fit by minor adjustments to it. Customer service was very helpful picking the right tool for the job.



by:

I love ordering from etrailer. Easy to find what I'm looking for and it gets here quick. Everything they carry is great quality from my experience so far. I needed yet another drop hitch for my truck this time for a 2 5/16' ball. Great price for something that is rated 10k pounds.



by:

Purchased a hitch and ball from eTrailer. The information and videos on the website were very useful. The products were shipped out the same day and everything was received promptly as advertised. Very satisfied.



by:

After a year the mount shows no wear at all I would recommend this product to any one needing a good hitch mount, with a large rise and drop.



by:

This drop hitch is well made and has a nice protective finish. We just bought a much bigger truck and the drop will allow towing of my smaller trailer nice and level. The specified amount of drop is accurate.



by:

Awesome product!

Its worked fantastic . I cant say too many good things about curt products theyre the best in the industry. You cant go wrong buying curt products.



by:

great product, looks great, problem is I ordered the wrong rise, I ordered 7 inch and actually need a 5 inch rise. should have ordered
Curt Ball Mounts
Code: C45336



by:

This drop hitch rated at 10,000 lbs is so much cheaper than anyone around me and the quality is excellent. I've used etrailer for several purchases over the years they always deliver. I'm always impressed with their selection and pricing. On this last order they upgraded my shipping and I received my order 4 days earlier than expected.



by:

Perfect fit exactly what I needed. I have a light duty adjustable hitch that I worried was inadequate. I purchase this for the rating and reassurance that I was safe towing my heavy trailer and tractor.

  • Recommended Hitch and Ball Mount for a 2017 Audi Q7
    Thanks for the picture! The Curt Trailer Hitch item # C13277 you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2017 Audi Q7. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your Audi with included hardware. To be level you will typically want your ball mount to be within 3" of the height of your trailer's coupler. The receiver on your Audi will be right at 12" above the ground so you will want to use the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches item # C45338. This ball mount will give you 7" of rise. You will also...

  • Hitch Pin Hole to Support Gusset Distance on Curt 10K Ball Mount 8-1/2 Inch Drop
    On Curt ball mount # C45338 it measures approximately 5 inches from the center of the pin hole to the support gusset. However, the welds could be slightly different from one to the next so on some it will be less and others it will be more but only by a fraction of an inch. I have linked a video review of this ball mount for you.

  • Does Capacity of Ball Mount Change if Used in Rise Position
    The towing and tongue weight capacity of the Curt Ball Mount # C45338 does not change if you use it in the rise position; it has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and towing capacity of 10,000 lbs no matter if you use it to get 8-1/4 inches of drop or 7 inches of rise. Keep in mind your capacity is limited to that of your truck and hitch receiver. For example, the Curt Trailer Hitch # C14006 for your 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 also has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and towing...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2 inch Hitch that Needs Rise of 6.75 Inches
    For the Curt hitch part # 13266 that fits your 2012 Volvo XC70 the ball mount you'd want would be the Curt # C45338 which has rise of 7 inches. With suspension sag from the tongue weight of the trailer this would put you right where you need to be for the trailer to sit level. I also attached a help article on determining the correct rise/drop ball mount for you to check out as well.

  • Ball Mount with 6 inch Drop and 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball
    For a 6 inch drop ball mount that would fit the 2 inch hitch of your 2019 Subaru Ascent we have the Draw Tite part # 40346 and then for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball you'd want the part # 19260 and you'd be set. The Curt ball mount does not have the smaller ball size available for it since the ball hole is larger.

  • Can the Ark Articulating Coupler Be Used with an Adjustable Channel Mounting Ball Mount
    We haven't tested using an Ark Articulating Coupler # AR44FR with a Curt Adjustable ball mount like the # C45902 and I don't think this is going to work because of the limited clearance from the hitch ball to the channel. You'll instead want to use a ball mount with a drop like the # C45338 specifically for towing with the AR44FR, since it will allow the coupler to move freely. I've linked an article on how to properly measure for a drop/rise ball mount to this answer in case you're not...

  • Gaining Rise With a Hitch Ball
    You can get get a hitch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank that will give you 2 inches of rise with a 2 inch ball # C40034, though that is going to limit your towing capacity to 6,000 lbs. If you needed to stick with a 10,000 lb towing capacity, then you would need a new ball mount, # C45338 for 8 inches of drop, # AMSC6 for 6 inches of drop or if four inches of drop was needed, # AMSC4. I have added links to video reviews of each of these ball mounts for you to take a look at.

  • Can Curt Hi Rise Hitch Ball C40034 be Used with Curt Ball Mount # C45338
    Since the Curt Hi Rise Hitch ball part # C40034 is designed for a 1 inch diameter hitch ball hole you'd need the hitch ball bushing part # 58184 to use it with the Curt ball mount # C45338 that you have.

  • 12K-Rated 2-Inch Ball Mount with 8-Inches of Drop
    For a 2-inch ball mount rated for 12,000-lbs that has 8-inches of drop we offer two options you can see on the linked page. Part # 4283 from Draw-Tite provides 7-inches of rise or 8-inches of drop, as does Curt # C45448. Both take a hitch ball, sold separately, like 10K-rated # A-90. This is the highest-rated 2-inch ball we offer. We do not have a 12K ball mount with this rise/drop that comes with the hitch ball pre-mounted.

  • Recommended 2 Inch Hitch Ball with 10,000 lb Capacity for Curt Ball Mount
    There is a 2 inch hitch ball rated for 10,000 lbs that is compatible with the Curt Ball Mount # C45338. I recommend the 2" Hitch Ball # A-90 because it is rated for 10,000 lbs and has a shank that measures 1-1/4" diameter x 2-5/8 long so there will be minimal excess once the nut is tightened. I have added a link to a video review of this hitch ball for you to check out as well.

  • Ball Mount Needed With at Least 8 inch Drop, 1-1/4 inch Ball Hole Diameter, and is 3/4 inches Thick
    Yes! The Curt Ball Mount # C45338, which has a 7 inch Rise and a 8-1/4 inch Drop, has a ball hole diameter of 1-1/4 inches and the ball hole platform is 3/4 inches thick. You will want to secure this to your trailer hitch receiver with a pin and clip # C21500. You can use either a hitch ball that has a 2 inch diameter # A-90 or a 2-5/16 inch diameter # 19286.

This ball mount will fit 2 inch hitch receivers and has a gross towing capacity of 10,000 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 pounds. In order to have an 8 inch rise with a high enough towing capacity, you will want the Convert-a-Ball Adjustable-Height Ball Mount # TK5007. This adjustable ball mount has a maximum rise of 9 inches.

  • What is the Ground Clearance for the Curt Hitch # C13397 for My 2021 Honda CR-V?
    The height from the ground to the bottom edge of the Curt Hitch # C13397 on your 2021 Honda CR-V is 11-1/4 inches. With this ground clearance height, I recommend using a drop hitch like the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 7" Rise, 8-1/4" Drop - 9-3/8" Long # C45338. With this adapter, you will be able to have a higher ground clearance if you use a small utility trailer.

  • How To Carry Motorcycle With 2018 Audi Q3
    Trailer hitch manufacturers like Draw-Tite part # 75218 for the 2018 Audi Q3 do make their hitches to be as strong as possible and to handle more weight then what the vehicle itself can handle. You will still need to follow the guidelines of the tongue weight of your Audi to avoid damage to the vehicle which is in place for any hitch, aftermarket or factory. I was not able to pull up the owner's manual of the 2018 Audi Q3 but if your copy says 300 lbs I cannot recommend exceeding that...

  • Ball Mount for Trailer Hitch Height of 12-1/2 inch and Coupler Height 19 Inches
    The two dimensions needed to be compared when picking out rise/drop ball mount is the top of the hitch opening down to the ground as well as the bottom of the coupler lip on the trailer down to the ground when the trailer is level. Since you measured from top of the coupler you'd need to remove right at 2 inches from 21 so you'd have from 12-1/2 inches to 19 inches which is 6-1/2 inches. So the closest you can get to that is 7 inches of rise like the part # C45338 which would work great.

  • Fit and Compatibility of Reese Sway Control Ball Mount Bracket on Curt Ball Mounts
    The Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 will fit the Class IV ball mount # C45338. For the Class V ball mount you would want the weld-on sway control tab # C45822. I have linked all the above mentioned products to this page for your convenience.

  • Ball Mount to Use for 6 inch Drop When Using Curt Rockerball
    The place to measure on your trailer for picking out correct rise/drop is actually from the bottom of the coupler lip. So since you measured from the top of where the ball fits into the coupler you'd need to subtract about 2 inches from that so you'd have 17 inches. So difference between 23 inches and 17 inches is 6 inches which means you'd need a drop of inches. So since you have a Curt Rockerball that adds 2 inches you'd need a 8 inch drop then. So for that you'd want the part # C45338...

  • Ballmount Rise/Drop Needed for Towing Rental Car Dolly with 2015 Dodge Charger
    The closer you can get the hitch ball height to the level height of the trailer (tow dolly in your case), the better. Towing the trailer nose up or down can cause trailer sway, which you'll want to avoid. For best results, you'll want to get the coupler and ball height within 1-1/2 to 2 inches, and it's better to have the coupler slightly lower than the trailer ball than vice versa. A ball mount with a 7-inch rise like # C45338 would put you right where you need to be, height wise. If...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Needing 7 inches of Rise
    Based on what you mentioned it does seem like a rise of about 7 inches or so would be ideal for you. For a fixed ball mount the part # C45338 would be a really great option or for a more universal solution an adjustable ball mount like the part # FA42-00-2600 would cover basically everything.

  • Can Curt Ball Mount Part # C45338 be Used with Tow Dolly
    Yes, if you had a tow dolly that attaches to a hitch ball the Curt ball mount part # C45338 that you referenced would work well with it. For hitch balls you'd want the part # A-90 for a 2 inch ball or part # C40036 for a 2-5/16 inch ball.

  • How to Determine the Amount of Drop Needed on Ball Mount for Towing Trailer
    When determining the amount of rise or drop you will need on the ball mount for your towing setup, you just need to take a couple simple measurements. The first, which you have already taken, is from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver when your vehicle is parked and on level ground. The second is from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when it is also parked on level ground. You did state you took a measurement when the trailer was attached to a different vehicle,...

  • Ball Mount to Clear Rear Bumper on 2013 Toyota Sienna and Provide Close to 7 Inch Rise
    Based on your measurements getting exactly what you need is a little tricky but I have some possible options for you. I can get you close to the rise you need by using ball mount # D-28, which has a 4 inch rise, with hi rise ball # C40034 or # C40032, both of these balls offer another 2 inches of height for a total rise of 6 inches. The tongue weight of the trailer will pull it down a little so at most you would be off level by 1 inch.

  • Hitch Extended to Keep Trailer From Hitting Flat Bed Truck While Turning
    Since flat beds are longer than regular truck beds situations like yours can occur more often than with a regular truck. Using a longer ball mount or a hitch extender is a viable option. Since the longest ball mount with an 8 inch drop is # C45338. It measures 9-3/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. If that is not enough length then an extender will need to be used. The use of an most extenders reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer...

  • Recommended Drop Hitch For My 2021 Thor Windsport Motorhome With 2" Trailer Hitch
    When you are towing you want the trailer to be as close to level as possible. If the top of your trailer hitch is 22" and the height of your coupler is between 14" and 16", you will need a drop between 6" to 8" for your ball mount. I would go with something closer to 8" since you still have a slight rise in your coupler with the 6" drop of your Curt ball mount, part # C45338. I recommend going with an adjustable ball mount rated for the 5,000 lbs you are requesting. I recommend the Gen-Y...
