Can You Change The Ball Mount Height On The Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver For a 2017 BMW 3 Series?


Ill be towing an ultralight trailer but on the trailer end it mentions the top of the ball should sit 15inch from the top of the ball. Is there a available for the Stealth Hitch, or whats the best solution for this, would that ~3inch difference be OK?

The Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver w/ Towing Kit # SH33VR will come with a 7" Ball Mount # 391BMU7S. When we had this installed on a 2014 BMW 3 series it had a ball height of 18-1/2". You can get either the 5" Ball Mount # 391BMU5S to drop the hitch 2" or the 3" Ball Mount # 391BMU3S to drop the ball height 4". I recommend installing the hitch and connecting your trailer with the 7" ball mount to determine how much your suspension will sag to determine which ball mount will work best for your trailer to get it to the correct height.

The hitch will come with a 2" ball or you can get a 1-7/8" Ball # C40002 if you have a 1-7/8" Coupler. A Carrying Case # 391CASEC will help you keep all your components together and protect them if you leave them in your trunk.
