Recommended Ball Mount Kit For 2015 Ford Explorer


I have a 2015 Ford Explorer that came with tow package. What size hitch and ball so I need?


Expert Reply:

If your Explorer has a Class lll trailer hitch already installed I recommend the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

If you have a smaller receiver opening on your trailer hitch you will need a 1-1/4 inch ball mount and appropriate hitch ball.

I have attached a link to our product page for the ball mounts we offer. You can use the filter on the page to select the class trailer hitch and select the ball mount that will work best for you.

If you have a Class l or Class ll trailer hitch I recommend the # A-80 hitch ball for a 1-7/8 inch and part # A-82 for a 2-inch hitch ball.
