How to Pick Out Correct Ball Mount for 2015 Ford F-150  


I need a receiver and ball for my 2015 F150. What do you recommend? Trailer capacity is 2500 lbs? But I may get a class 111 for heavier towing loads. Thanks

I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch while on level ground. Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground.

Next, you will need to compute the difference. If the hitch height is greater than the coupler height the difference is the drop required. If the coupler height is greater the difference is the rise required. You will want to pick the ball mount with the rise/drop closest to the difference.

Or if you email me back with what you need I can help you pick one out. Once you have the ball mount picked out we can then pick out the correct hitch ball. But I'd also need to know what size ball your trailer calls for. On the coupler of the trailer there should be a size listed for the ball it would take. It should be either 2 inch or 2-5/16 inch most likely but possibly 1-7/8 inch.
