Trailer Hitch Extension to Keep Trailer From Contacting Truck During Turns  


How long has to be my trailer tongue if the with of my truck is 98inches and extend 19 inches from the hitch hole out. Do I need a hitch extention to of how many inches.


Expert Reply:

You want to make sure the hitch ball is out past the furthest point of the truck.

An 18 inch extender like the Curt # C45796 will reach most of the way to the edge of the truck. Then any ball mount will make up the rest. We have a ball mount kit, # 989900, that includes two different ball mounts and hitch balls that may work for you. Depending on the rise or drop you need, if any, with your trailer.
