What is the Proper Rise/Drop Ball Mount for a 2006 Honda Civic


How much ball mount rise will I need for a Draw tite hitch on a 2006 Civic? Will the reciever be about 10 inches off the ground? Im thinking a 4inch should work, but if I needed a 5 inch, could I use the Class 11 ball mount you sell?


Expert Reply:

The recommended drawbar for a 2006 Honda Civic with Class I hitch is part # 3593. The hitch manufacturers recommend draw bars based on the weight capacity of the hitch and vehicle and the trailer coupler height of trailers that fall in that weight capacity. Part # 3593 is the proper amount of rise for most trailers that fall under 2,000 pounds. The rise on part # 3593 is 2-1/8 inch so if this rise will not keep the trailer level, chances are that trailer should not be towed with your vehicle.

The Draw-Tite model available for a 2006 Honda Civic, part # 24763, does not include the above drawbar.
