How to Pick Out a Ball Mount for Towing a Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Level


I have a 2015 Subaru Outback with a factory 1.25inch receiver. I will be towing my Yakima Rack and roll with a 1 7/8inch ball hitch. I pull a 17 foot canoe or hobie odyssey. Which drawbar/ receiver would be best for this combination?


Expert Reply:

In order for the Yakima Rack and Roll trailer part # Y08107 to be towed level you will want to go with a ball mount that will put the hitch ball right at 22 inches from the ground. You will need to measure from the top of your hitch opening to the ground. The difference between that measurement and 22 is the amount of rise/drop you would need.

Once you determine that you will want to check out the link I attached that will take you to a page that has all of the 1-1/4 inch ball mounts we offer. You will want to select the amount of rise/drop needed to tow your trailer level.

You will need a 2 inch hitch ball as well. On the product page of the ball mount you pick out there will be related products where a 2 inch hitch ball will be listed.
