Ball Mount Recommendation for 2017 Chevy Suburban Z71


We have a 2017 Chevy suburban z71 4x4 can you recommend the correct ball mount normally required

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.

There really is not a maximum length of a ball mount that is considered safe. You will need to consider the height of your vehicle and not get one with a drop that would put the ball mount platform to close to the ground.

Other option is an adjustable ball mount like the part # BWTS10037B which allows you the ability to use varying heights for varying height trailers.
