Was exactly what I was looking for.


etrailer delivered on time as promised and I had no problems with the order. The product was as described and works perfectly with my Husky Centerpoint hitch. The large adjustment range lets me level my trailer when towing with my 3/4 ton Silverado. I have now towed my trailer about 15,000 miles with it and had no problems.



I an still using the shank and am very pleased with the performance. I expect to use it for many years to come.


It is exactly what they described it to be. Very happy with etrailer,I recommend them very highly, I put down the wrong address so i emailed them and they got it corrected with no delay on the delivery,and called to inform me they took care of it. Great place to do business with. Now I can go camping

Still working great, my camper pulls nice and level. And I still highly recommend etrailer.


My initial review of the hitch’s quality and finish is impressive. However, I haven’t had the opportunity to hook it up to the trailer yet due to our current snow conditions. That being said, my transfer of my previous receiver looks flawless to this one and should work very well. Going from a Tundra to a Ram 2500, there is a significant height difference. All my measurements in the garage look to be just what I needed. I’m very confident I’ve made the correct purchase!


I recently bought a new truck (Ram 2500 3/4 ton). My old truck was a Ram 1500 1/2 ton. My Husky hitch was fine on the 1500 truck, but not on the 2500, it sits a LOT higher off the ground. I needed a drop hitch that fit my Husky, and you guys HAVE IT. It worked out great, first trip out today with it, everything level and no sag on truck or camper. As stated in your catalog, this Curt brand DOES fit my Husky brand, NO PROBLEM. Thank you, what a life saver on not having to buy a whole new hitch.


This is one heavy duty weight distribution shank. I am very happy with etrailer, Now I have all Curt equipment on the truck, and super fast delivery. A+ job thank you


This is a good drop shank if you have a truck that is leveled with oversized tires.


Very good quality, heavy duty construction and nice finish. Recently changed tow vehicle and needed to add more drop. This shank did the job.


Exactly what I was looking for. Plenty of room for the adjustment needed. Excellent quality product, well fabricated. Very good customer service and speedy delivery time. Ordered on a Monday morning and had the part before 1pm the next day.

The part I ordered works perfect and we’re ready to begin another season of hauling our 27’ camper tomorrow.


I recently purchased a 2015 Tahoe and since the trailer hitch is positioned above the bumper as opposed to my 2000 Tahoe which has the hitch located below the bumper, I had to find and purchase a new receiver. I found this product at etrailer and it fits perfectly. It is compatible with the Drawtite weight distribution ball.





After getting a new truck that sets a little higher I thought I would have to buy a complete new weight distribution hitch. I was able to find just the shank part at etrailer.


Excellent product! Perfect for my Ram3500 4x4 to drop for a smaller travel trailer.


I needed a lower shank for my husky certerline ts weight distribution hitch. This fit my needs perfectly


Needed a new shank as I bought the Class 5 hitch for my dodge,, I bought the class 5 that fit under the stock hitch and wish I had not, but after thought etc,, should have just removed the class 3 and bought a different 5,., all in all worked out but a new shank because my hitch was now lower than what it was, I probably didnt need a new one because after all the measuring etc,, ( Have to go to a parking lot as I live in dirt) to make it level, worked out fine.



Still good thanks


I needed a weight distribution system and quickly realized that Curt was the best around. You get what you pay for so why not get the best!? Very simple to install and with the correct routine maintenance this will last forever, Shipping was fast and box was In good shape when it arrived.


I have been ordering from etrailer for years. The items I receive are always of good quality and are Ata reasonable price.


After shopping around for a hitch ,I was recommended to etrailer by a friend and found exactly the hitch I needed at a much better price than all the other places that I had looked at,even for the same brand and model of hitch !!



excellent quality, worked great and was major improvement towing my race car


It’s doing just what I need


Fast delivery


This product fit my needs for lowering my hitch point to make the trailer tow level. Absolutely no problems!



Still working fine.


etrailer customer service is outstanding. I needed a long drop down receiver for my lifted truck and Meghan L talked with me on the phone for about 45 minutes. We did measurements and looked for a while to make my trailer ride level. Meghan was very helpful and the product has been top quality. Thank you for all your help.


I ordered this item to help raise the hitch ball about four inches on my 2006 GMC Sierra 1500. The truck sits low normally and my attempt to tow a 4700 LB. trailer only made the back end lower. I was 6 inches too low from being level to tow. To compensate, I installed a Firestone Air lift system to level out the truck bed, giving me 4" of height at 50 psi plus reversing the shank and adjusting the ball height two more inches corrected the problem!
The combination of the two items now gives me a level tow! I recommend both products for any similar mismatches between truck and trailer.


We bought a new truck, with a taller stance, and had to reconfigure the load-leveler hitch to accommodate the difference. A little bit of simple math, and this is the part we needed. Assembly is a snap. It fits the new receiver and the existing ball head like it was made for them. (It might have been, lol)
Shipping was quick. It actually arrived before I was expecting it to. I expected I would have to wait a couple of days longer than I did.
Thanks Etrailer, for an excellent buying experience.


Solid design. Worked out great with my new Titan XD. My new truck sits higher than my old 04 Silverado Z71. The old shank that came with the weight distribution hitch just wasn't long enough. I needed an additional 4" drop. This shank is solid like the original and gives me up to 6.5" additional drop.

Shipping was fast. About 4 days.

I am a repeat customer and will shop here again.


The product arrived in great shape in spite of the box having broken down and had been repaired.
The drop hitch looked of excellent quality and I was able to install on my weight distribution hitch easily.
Your website is very informational and easy to navigate.
Overall it was a pleasure doing business with etrailer.
Thank you very much.
