Is there a Euro Style Ball Mount with a 5 Inch Rise for a 2016.5 Mazda CX-5


For my 2016.5 Mazda Cx-5, I need a ball mount with a rise of 5 inches to match the trailer I intend to use. Your C45014 Class 2 drawbar looks like a perfect fit. So I know I can go that route. My question isis there a euro style mount that would be equivalent to the C45014. From ground to top of my class 2 trailer hitch receiver is 13.5 inches, so I need at least 5 or so inches. It looks like the euro types only prove rise in the 3 inch range. Am I missing something?


Expert Reply:

There are only a handful of Euro style ball mounts and like you said none of them have the amount of rise you need to tow the trailer level with your 2016.5 Mazda CX-5. The best option is to go with the regular ball mount # C45014 and a properly sized ball for the trailer coupler.

If the coupler takes a 1-7/8 inch ball use # A-80. For a 2 inch ball use # A-82.
