2018 Toyota Tacoma Ball Hitch Mount Size  


We ordered a travel trailer Braxton Creek Bushwhacker Plus, the manufacturer said the coupler height is 23. Our Tacoma is 18inch to top of 2inch hitch receiver. The dealership doesnt seems to be able to provide rise/ advise for the ball hitch mount size required for us to purchase prior to picking up trailer. Im assuming we need a 5inch rise with 2inch ball. Any suggestion is very much appreciated. Were confused at this point.

That's a tall camper!

I'd recommend going with a 6 inch rise option like the Curt # C45090. Even though your camper doesn't have much tongue weight, you'll still get a bit of sag in the truck's suspension when you hitch the camper, so the little bit of extra height will compensate for that. For a trailer ball, use # 63845.

I've linked to some help articles that will tell you everything you ever needed to know about ball mounts.
