Towing a boat and with my f250 loaded with a camper I need a ball receiver hitch with a 8 in rise to be level. Towing weight is only 4000 lbs and 300 tw,

I recommend the Curt Ball Mount # C45338. This ball mount offers a 7 inch rise, which will put you within an inch of level. 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. The gross towing weight capacity of the ball mount is 5,000 pounds and maximum tongue weight is 500 pounds.

I have attached a help article on how to choose the correct ball mount.
