Video Transcript for Convert-A-Ball Ball Mounts AMSC12 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount for 2 inch Hitches, number AMSC12. This is a cushioned ball mount to protect the tow vehicle's drive line and hitch assembly as well as the trailer's contents. It has a polyurethane interior that acts as a shock absorber, reducing bounce and rythmic vibration. You can see right here, the shock absorber is encased in steel and you can see it back here as well inside the hollow shank. It functions as a rise or drop to help you level your trailer. Right now it's in the drop position.

Here is how it would look in the rise position. It's constructed of powder coated steel with, again, the interior polyurethane cushion. It slides into a 2 inch square trailer hitch receiver, like the demonstrator we have right here, and attaches with a standard 5/8th of an inch hitch pin, such as this right here. Again, this is sold separately, but it's available right here on, number PC3. Taking a look at some specs, again, it fits the 2 inch trailer hitch, has a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds, and ton weight capacity of 2,000 pounds.

The drop from here to the ball platform is 12 inches. The rise from here to the top of the ball platform is 10 3/4 of an inch. The full length from here to the end of the platform is 16 inches. The hitch pin hole, which is right here, to the center of the hitch ball hole is 12 1/2 inches. That ball hold diameter is 1 inch, and this does feature a two year limited warranty.

We'll show you how this sets up. Due to the length of the drop, we got to bend our demonstrator back just a little bit. Just like any hitch, you'll line up the holes and then put your pin in there, just clip that off, and you're good to go. Again, this is in the drop position. If you want the rise, just put that in upside down, whichever way provides a level transport for your trailer.

That should just about do it for our Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount for 2 inch Hitches, number AMSC12.

This is a ball hitch mount that is not a standard unit, problem I had I purchased a new p/u going from a 2500 series which stood higher to a 1500 series standing lower by 4" also lowering 3 1/2" towing a 4800 pound boat as we all know, needing to tow level, that wasn't going to happen, this ball mount did the trick, fits D.O.T. standards also more than what i needed for weight requirements 83187


Ball mount achieved the goal for my height requirements, what I didnt explain the piston action in the ball mount, it does cushion the back and fourth while towing considerably if and when I will buy one with it, also you got it to me in two days great device l

Rock Solid and so Smooth I can't give enough praise to this much needed item. I was in a rush to get this during the holidays because my previous mount was thrashed and I was going on a big trip. It shipped the same day at 4pm about an hour after I purchased it and arrived on the 5th day nicely packed and everything I ordered was there. My trip was over 200 miles with about 3,000 lbs on some rugged potholed fire-road bumpy terrain for most of it. I love the "cushion" feature... No more clankity clank - jerkity jerk from the hitch. I'm curious as to it's longevity before the cushion becomes sloppy and I plan on taking it all the way there. I also purchased the stainless interchangeable balls and say this is a must have. The 12" drop is perfect for an 8" lifted truck. This was my first experience with etrailer... And it won't be my last! 5370

Great looking drop hitch and unbelievably fast shipping. Works great on my 2012 dodge diesel with 6" lift and 37" tires. The 10,000 lb. rating is the highest I could find with this much drop not to mention about half the cost of any other hitch I found. Customer service and shipping verification follow up is second to none. I'll be buying from them from now on. 57393

Very good service, came on time as promised. I can see it is a quality product. I had measured the drop I needed on my 2014 Ram 2500 HD limited with class 5 hitch and 2# reducer. it measured approximately 14". This was the closest drop I could find anywhere. I hooked it up to my smaller Horton single axle trailer with a full load and it is just a little off level but will be more then sufficient to keep the trailer from swinging when towing. I plan to also use it for my double axle Horton and Hustler trailers that will be heavier and expect it will be perfectly level with the added payload. Perfect for what I need 182153

Haven't gotten to use this hitch yet, but it is very well made and heavy duty. Also, it seems like the perfect amount of drop for my 6" lifted Dodge 2500 with 37" tires. haha I can't wait to see what kind of difference the "Cushioned" part makes when hauling a heavy trailer, especially through stop-and-go traffic. And one last thing...I am VERY pleased with the service from I got several emails alerting me of the status of my order. They even upgraded my shipping for FREE!!! They have definitely gone above and beyond and I will be looking to them again for all of my future towing needs. 65019

I recently bought a new Chevy Suburban. I've been driving these since before they were called SUV's. Back when they were the only game in town. And I've been towing trailers all this time. But my new Suburban has a hitch receiver that is in the middle of the bumper, much too high. One of my trailers actually scrapes along the ground because of the height of the hitch. I got a 6" drop hitch elsewhere, but was dissappointed that it didn't solve my problem. And 6" drop was the lowest they had. I was so glad to find your site and the 12" drop hitch I just received. Problem solved. Thanks! 79437

Love the ball mount. I have a Toyota Sienna and the rear seats recess into a well, therefore the receiver hitch much go underneath the well. This means the ball mount enters the receiver approximately 10 inches off the ground. By using the ball mount to raise the ball, this makes the ball around 22 inches off the ground, which is recommended height for my trailer. My only regret is that I did not request you attach a ball as I did not have any wrenches large enough to fasten it. Again, the mount is great. Thanks, Ron Baker 71099

Recieved my cushioned ball mount with 12" drop last week and hooked a new motorcycle trailer to it. Just delivered my bike to a tire store 50 miles from home over a very bumpy road. The cushioned ball mount did its job and reduced the banging and overall noise while towing that I have come to expect with other mounts. Outstanding product. Ordered via regular shipping and still recieved product a few day's later in Rangeley, Maine. Overall experience has been outstanding. Will order from this company again. 73108

by: Terry E.11/08/2011

Wow. Product shipped same day, regular ground, but arrived only 2 days later. Had the cushion feature on it that I hadn't even noticed or expected. My Toyota truck is lifted 6" with a Nissan Titan hitch custom welded on so this brought it down to the perfect height for me (14"). Great value too. Thanks! 26697

by: Vic G.10/16/2014

I ordered this product not sure about the quality or if I had the too large of a drop. I use this on my lifted jeep to pull my Kayak trailer. Great quality and works fine. A hitch is a hitch. It either works or it won't. The part I'm most impressed with is the customer service of this company. They expedited shipping without having to ask. The followup after the purchase has been spot on. I deffinately have this company saved in my favorites and will use them again and again. 156409

The product was delivered in an outstanding n as promised date. I thank you very much etrailer. I know now that the 2012 Fleetwood Motor Home Models are required 12"drop hitch in order to accomodate/pull 6x12 ft or 7x14 ft trailers. I loaded my 2006 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic and the height level was just awesome, perpendicular to the ground. My Motor Home and trailer looks eye level. I love it n I'm very pleased with the product"AMSC12". Again thanks etrailer and Katie.:)} 40885

by: Ryan P.12/06/2013

Needed a 12" drop hitch for my truck since it has quite a bit of lift. Not only did etrailer have the highest rated 12" drop hitch I could find but also the cheapest! I also ordered a 2 & 5/16ths ball that also rated at 10,000lbs. My boat and trailer loaded up is about 6500/7000 so this will def cover the pay load and then some. Shipping was very fast and everything was well boxed together. Would def recommend this company to anyone I knew. 109396

I have two of these drop hitches and they do the job very well. The Cushioned pin is nice and makes for a smooth stops and take offs. The only con I have found is the 1" Ball hole diameter: It is difficult to find a 2 5/16 ball with a 1" shank that matches the 10,000 lbs the hitch provides. If the weight is a concern I suggest you order the ball at the same time. Your not going to run into your local tractor supply and find one. 178488

I recently purchased an RV built on a Ford F350 with a raised rear bumper. I needed a ball mount with a 12 inch drop in order to tow a light boat. This mount is heavy duty, very nicely made and finished, and is cushioned - plus it is less expensive than others of lower capacity and quality. I haven't used it yet but I'm sure I'll be pleased when I do. 121826

by: Gary E.04/06/2012

Drop down ball mount with 12" drop was the right distance to accommodate the high Hummer truck height to the low motorcycle trailer. Perfect. Product is single piece construction allowing me to avoid the additional cost of a two-piece installation. Transaction was flawless. Shipped immediately and arrived as predicted 3 days later. 36315

The cushioned ball mount arrived yesterday. It looks like it is very well built. I have not had a chance to try it out yet. The "greaseless" 2 5/16" HardBall hitch ball is unusual. I hope that the plastic (?) cap is strong enough. I have not mounted it on the cushioned ball mount yet either. Too soon to tell.............. 15861

Nice little hitch for the $. Puts my car trailer right where it needs to be on a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 6" lift and 37" tires. It's made in the USA. Good welds. It's rated 10,000lbs trailer / 2,000lbs tongue where most other steel ball mounts with this much drop are 5,000lbs trailer / 500lbs tongue. 45826

I have a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 lifted 6 inches with 37 inch tires. This 12 inch dorp is perfect because not only does it absorb the shock from stopping and pulling but this Cushioned Ball Mount also keeps my car trailer perfect level. Great product for the price! 32288

I originally bought an 8" drop from Tractor Supply. I needed more of a drop for my trailer. I found this 'perfect' hitch on-line. This was only $20 more but is of a lot better quality and can handle more tongue/pull weight. Plus, it looks really cool! 176990

Ask the Experts about this Convert-A-Ball Ball Mounts
Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?

  • Will a Cushioned Ball Mount Work with Surge Trailer Brakes
  • The cushion inside of the Convert-A-Ball cushioned ball mount # AMSC4 would have only a slight affect on the surge coupler on your trailer. You may not even notice it. The cushion is very dense and the more pressure that is put on it the firmer it gets. It would take more force to compress that cushion than to actuate the surge coupler. Cushioned ball mount # AMSC4 has a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop but there are other options if you need a different rise or drop to tow the trailer...

  • How is Rise and Drop Measured on a Ball Mount Like Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSC12
  • We measure rise or drop from the top of the receiver tube to the top of the ball platform. I have included a link to an FAQ that should help. Also remember that the tongue weight of the trailer will cause the rear end of the vehicle to come down a little as well.

Whatever the difference is the amount of rise/drop you need.

  • Can a Roadmaster High-Low Adapter be Used with a Kawasaki Mule for Off-the-Road Towing
  • If the trailer has a regular coupler that fits on a ball then the best solution is a ball mount with the proper rise. I really cannot recommend using any of the High-Low adapters for anything other than flat towing a vehicle, even if it could work. But it sound like a ball mount with the proper rise is the ideal solution. The ball mount we have with the most rise is # AMSC12. It has 10-3/4 inches rise. But something like # 80248 with 9-3/4 inches might be better. I have included a link...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount for Lifted 1995 Ford F150
  • The Hidden Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount you referenced, part # 80414 will work just fine with a 1995 Ford F150 as long as it has a 2 inch receiver.

  • Can Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSC12 Be Used in the Rise Poistion
  • The Convert-A-Ball # AMSC12 cushioned ball mount can indeed be used in the rise position, which would provide 10-3/4 inches of rise. Keep in mind this is an extreme rise. Usually, needing a rise that large would be a good indication that you really shouldn't tow that trailer with your vehicle, but because the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailers are so light, you won't have a problem. You'll also need a 2 inch diameter ball like part # 63845.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for a 2014 Itasca Sun Star 35F Towing a RoadMaster Tow Dolly
  • Thanks for sending us a picture! I haven't heard a county or state restricting the amount of drop for a ball mount when towing. I would recommend verifying this information with the local department of transportation office. If you find there is no restriction on drop, then I have what you will need. Based on your photo, it looks like the actually hitch height is 30-1/2 inches measured to the top of your receiver. The Roadmaster tow dolly # RM-2000-1 you referenced requires a ball...
