Ball Mount and Ball Recommendation for a 2010 Ford Escape with Factory Trailer Hitch


I just purchased a 2010 Ford Escape Limited with a trailer package hitch, tranny cooler, etc and I need to add a ball mount and ball. Is there a standard measurement in the mount that I get or is there a recommended one for standard towing, if there is such a thing?


Expert Reply:

If your 2010 Ford Escape came with a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver (measured internally) then you can use ball mount # 2923 with ball # 19260 (1-7/8 inch diameter), # 19247 (2 inch diameter), or # 63847 (2-5/16 inch diameter).

If the Escape came with a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch (this is probably the case), you can use ball mount # 36051 with ball # 19256 (1-7/8 inch diameter) or # 19258 (2 inch diameter).

I have included a link to our FAQ article on choosing the correct ball mount. Usually for a Class I or II, 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch, there is a specific ball mount recommended by the hitch manufacturer. But if that information is not available, you can use our FAQ to find one that will work for you.
