Review of the Brophy Ball Mount for 2 inch Hitch


Today at etrailer, we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy Ball Mount. This is going to be for our two inch hitches, and it is going to give us a two inch drop or a three quarter of an inch rise. This is going to have a trailer tongue weight of about 1000 pounds and a gross trailer weight of 10,000 pounds, but really kind of makes that possible, it is a solid shank, so it's super, super beefy. It isn't going to be one of these ball mounts where we can get an anti-rattle system to go on the inside, but we do have other types of re anti-rattle systems that will work with this ball mount. I highly recommend doing that just because even when I put this pin in, just like that, you still have a lot of noise and play. So I don't like listening to it, and the components probably don't appreciate all that rattling around.

So, if you really want to take care of your hitch, your vehicle, and of course your ball mount, I would definitely recommend getting one. It doesn't come with a pin and clip. So, if you wanted to go ahead and grab some of those too, go ahead and do that. And also it's not going to come with a ball. We're using a two inch here, but any other size ball that you need to go in here, it's going to work with that.

From a center of the hitch pin hole, to the center of our ball here, it's going to be about 13 and a 1/4 inches. It's a little bit longer than some of the shorter ones that we have here in etrailer. This is going to be great for maybe just getting a little bit more angle whenever you're backing out or turning, and if you do have storage on your trailer or maybe a bike rack, it's always nice to get a little bit more length from the bumper of your vehicle, to the coupler, just to give you a little bit more space to move. If you do own a Jeep or a pickup truck, maybe you want to make sure it's going to clear your Jeep spare tire, or you want to be able to let down your tailgate, so it doesn't hit your electric jack or something like that. This is probably going to be right at the beginning of where it's going to start clearing.

Just go ahead and take some measurements and then use the length of this to determine whether it's going to do that for you or not. We do have longer ones on our website, so if it's isn't long enough, we've got you covered. To sum it all up, this is going to get the job done. It does give you a rise and drop, so you can kind of determine which trailer you're using and which orientation you really need to use it in. For me, I'm really only going to use the rise whenever I hook up to my one specific trailer, that's pretty heavy, just because as my suspension starts to sag, all I really need is about an inch or so of rise to equal out.

So this is going to do a good job and it is kind of the heavier end of the entry-level mounts. I think it's going to do really well for you..
