Hitch Solution for 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI that Can Do Ball Mount Rise of 9 inches

Question:

I bought a Curt 114123 hitch for my 2015 VW GTI. Installed, the top of the receiver tube has a height of 9. The coupler height of my PWC trailer is 17. So Im looking for 8inch of rise, and need a bare minimum of 6inch of rise. Without the availability of 2inch ball with 2inch of rise and a 3/4inch shank, I cant figure out a way to make this happen with the available ball mounts. Can you find a solution to this?

I really wish there was a good solution for your problem but with Class I hitches like what you have there isn't a way to use a taller rise ball mount. The added length and leverage of the taller ball mount just is too much stress on the lower capacity hitch. Aside from going to a 2 inch hitch I really don't have a solution I can provide.

Thanks for the super quick reply. Is a 2" hitch available for my car?

There is a 2 inch hitch for your 2015 Volkswagen GTI available with the EcoHitch part # 306-X7309.

The Curt ball mount part # C45112 has an 8 inch rise then which would work well for you. Then for a 2 inch hitch ball you could use the part # 63845 and you'd be set.
