Ball Mount with 5 Inch Rise for a Class III Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Nissan Murano


I recently purchased a Hidden Hitch Class lll Round Receiver Hitch-for my 2015 Nisson Murano 600 lb tongue wt. from eTrailer. The installation went smoothly. I have found that the Murano sets quite low to the ground and my little 2 wheel trailer tongue at level is some 5 or 6 inches higher than the ball from my new hitch so I want to purchase a Drawbar with a 5 inch rise. Is the C45014 the right one. If not, what do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

There are numerous ball mounts that will fit your Class III trailer hitch and that have a 5 inch rise that you can use to tow the trailer level with your 2015 Nissan Murano. Ball mount # C45014 will not work because it does not fit a Class III hitch. It is too small.

I recommend # C45336. It has a 5 inch rise and is rated for 10,000 pounds gross trailer weight (limited to the capacity of the hitch or tow vehicle, whichever is lower). This ball mount has a 1-1/4 inch diameter ball hole. If you need a ball you can use # A-90 for a 2 inch or # 19286 for a 2-5/16 inch.

If you already have a ball but the shank is smaller than 1-1/4 inches you can use a bushing # F-2 to use a ball with a 1 inch diameter shank in a 1-1/4 inch ball hole.
