Determining Proper Ball Mount Height for 2009 Saturn Vue

If you follow the provided link, you can see our Ball Mount FAQ article that will walk you through the process.

You will measure from the top of your hitch receiver opening to the ground, then measure the bottom of your trailer coupler to the ground (make sure the trailer is perfectly level when measuring). The difference between these two measurements will be the rise or drop of the ball mount you need. If the receiver height is taller than the trailer coupler, you will need a ball mount that drops. If the coupler height is taller, you will need a ball mount with a rise.

For the average height trailer, we have determined that the # 2923 ball mount that has a 2 inch drop or a 3/4 inch rise when flipped would work best for the 2009 Vue, but I would recommend measuring to confirm.
