Longer Ball Mount Recommendation With at Least 750 lb Tongue Weight Capacity


Ive got a 2008 Hummer H2 SUT. I have a rear mounted spare tire which sits directly over my hitch ball. I need to extend it out 6 to 8 inches but Im worried it not be strong enough to tow my 6500 LB Jayco Camper. Will one of your Blue Ox extensions be safe to use? Blue Ox is the only one Ive found rated above 5,000 lbs. Tongue weight on my camper is 750 lbs. Any advice is appreciated.

We most likely will have a solution for you, but hitch extenders end up cutting the capacity of a hitch by 50 percent. Your best solution would be to go with a longer ball mount to help give you that distance.

For example, the Brophy ball mount part # BH20 measures 13-1/4 inches from the center of the ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole and it has a 10,000 lb capacity with a 1,000 lb tongue weight capacity.

I attached a page that has all of the longer ball mounts we offer with higher capacities for you to check out as well.
