Longer Ball Mount that Fits 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitch

Question:

Hi Please consider the info in the attached picture: Along with the fact that from the center of the hitch pin to the outside of the widest part of bumper fascia is about 5inch when suggesting a particular ball mount length that would be adequately sufficient to alleviate any concerns with regards to the minimum/max length of ball mount required for my existing boat trailer situation. I will factor or rise in addition to determine a particular ball mount. At this time it appears the top of the hitch receiver is about 12.5inch from the ground and the bottom of coupler may be about 12inch high. Thanks

A longer ball mount would be a decent idea I would think but since its going to be a Class II 1-1/4 inch ball there aren't super long options. Mostly everything will be about same length with some variations. If you can determine the rise/drop you need I can let you know what longest option would be.

Question:

Jameson While it has been hard to fine a very level surface to check the hitch receiver height measurement at this time it appears the closest drop measurement available that at least comes close to the actual measurements from top of receiver to bottom of coupler is going to be a 1.25” drop ball mount. Can you suggest based on that which Curt 1.25” ball mount will be the longest to meet that requirement? I believe from looking on Curt’s website this might be the one that is longest with the expectected required drop. #45519

Expert Reply:

The Curt ball mount part # C45519 would definitely be your best option. This has the 1-1/4 inch drop you need and is longer at 9-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the ball mount hole center so it would be best option.
