Hitch for 2021 Chevy Colorado to Tow Trailer with Lower Ball than Bumper Ball


I have a 8 foot x 5 foot utility single axle trailer that is 22 inches high if attached to bumper. Is there a better way?

Sounds like the hitch ball location on the bumper ball of your 2021 Chevy Colorado is quite a bit higher than what would allow most trailers to be towed level. So your best option would be to install a frame mounted hitch like the etrailer # e98909 which would not only be lower but also would allow you to use a ball mount which gives you ability to have a higher or lower platform for the ball.

Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
