This is really nice. Beveled edges so it slips into receiver hitch so sweet. Beautiful welds heavy weight mount for my weigh safe ball. I bought a 10,000 lbs hitch and I wanted a draw bar with the same type rating. Now the only thing limiting my trailer capacity is my truck's ability to tow, not the hitch, bar or ball. 798099

Before I ordered, I sent a question via the on-line help box because I wanted to make sure that I was ordering the right part for my vehicle and my particular use. A consultant was there almost immediately and then after quickly researching, confirmed that the part I had in mind would fit my vehicle and my intended use. The product was shipped and I received it sooner than expected and was delighted with the quality. It fit my vehicle and was at the perfect height for my trailer. The customer service was excellent and the product is excellent. I was very happy to find this company online and will happily continue to shop with them 773462

Products were shipped extremely fast. The hitch I received was a hollow design. While this may be rated for 10k I do not believe it will last near as long as a solid shaft insert. It was not stated hollow in the description. Aside from that etrailer is top notch service 585439

I love the hitch. However, the crime [chrome] has come off of the ball and it has rusted. The extended hitch has worked very well in towing and launching my boat.

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Difference Between Brophy # BM20 and # BH20 Ball Mounts
    The Brophy Ball Mount # BM20 and the Brophy # BH20 referenced in your question are extremely similar to each other. They are both designed for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers, have a 10,000 pound towing weight capacity, feature a long, 13-1/4 inch shank and will give you either a 3/4 inch rise or a 2 inch drop. The primary difference between the two units is the ball hole diameter. The # BH20 has a 1-1/4 inch ball hole diameter, which will be compatible with a hitch ball with this same...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2017 Range Rover
    As long as the OEM hitch receiver is not placed drastically behind the bumper, a standard ball mount like the one that comes with the Curt Starter Towing Kit # C45534 will work just fine. Your best bet is to measure from the center of your hitch pin hole on the hitch to the edge of the bumper and determine what that measurement it. If it's more than 5" or so, you're going to need a slightly extended ball mount like the Brophy # BM20 that you were looking at. From what I was able to find...

  • Using An Extended Length Ball Mount for Towing with a Bike Rack
    Yes, you can use an extended ball mount like part # BM20 to give more space for a bike rack to be used such as the Swagman Traveler XCS part # S64664 or the Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack part # C18013. I have attached a list of the extended length ball mounts that we offer below. If you already have a bike rack then you can use the MaxxTow Ball Mount part # MT70066. However, the drop that you require to tow level must be 2-1/4" or close in order to use this ball mount. If your drop is...

  • Longer Ball Mount Recommendation for Adding Distance Between Hitch Ball and Bumper
    There isn't a specific distance you want to have between the bumper of a vehicle and the hitch ball, but in general you'll want more than an inch. This will give you additional leeway when hitching up the trailer so that you don't slam the coupler of the trailer into the bumper as your backing up and will give you a bit more clearance. I'd recommend going with a longer ball mount like the Brophy # BM20 which is 13-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole. For a 2 inch...

  • Need Thickness of Ball Mount # BM20 Ball Platform and Hitch Ball Recommendation

This ball mount has a 2 inch drop or 3/4 inch rise. When used with a standard hitch ball, the small drop will help you tow your boat trailer level. This ball mount uses a hitch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank. A great hitch ball option that will work with the Brohpy Ball Mount # BM20 is the Curt Hitch...

    As long as both your 2005 Jeep Liberty and your trailer hitch have towing capacities that are above 2,800 lbs you would have not a problem using Ball Mount 3/4 inch Rise or 2 inch Drop, part # BM20, on the hitch. You might also be interested in purchasing a Hitch Ball with 2 inch Diameter and Long Shank, part # 63849, as well as a Hitch Ball with 1-7/8 inch Diameter and Long Shank, part # 19261.

  • Weight Capacity of Brophy Ball Mount # BM20
    I cannot explain the contradictory information you found on the online retailer's site as the Brophy Ball Mount # BM20 that you referenced does indeed have the 10,000 lbs GTW and up to 1,000 lbs TW capacities as shown on the etrailer product page. I verified these specs with Brophy and they are also available on their website if you wish. With this ball mount you can use a hitch ball with a 1-inch shank diameter, such as the 2-5/16-inch Diameter # 63847 or the 1-7/8-inch Diameter # 19261.

Remember, you'll be limited to the capacity of the lowest rated component.

  • Longer Ball Mount Recommendation with Drop As Near to 1 inch As Possible
    If you can't get the exact figure for the rise/drop you need the best solution is (if available) to go slightly higher in rise so that once the vehicle suspension is compressed slightly from the tongue weight it settles into being right at totally level. But if you can get much closer with a bit more drop than needed I would go that route over considerably too much rise as that will potentially add sway to the setup. But in your situation where you want 1 inch of drop from a longer...

  • Choosing Extended Length Ball Mount to Provide Maximum Clearance Between Trailer and Tow Vehicle
    If the trailer has an A-frame tongue on it, you should be in good shape unless you need to make a very tight 90 degree turn. We offer several different ball mounts in extended lengths. The longest ball mounts typically have a lower weight capacity. You will be best served getting the longest ball mount you can that has a capacity that exceeds the loaded weight of your trailer plus its load. If the trailer weight is not known, you can use a scale at a truck stop and have it weighed for...

    The shank you referenced, Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP63971, is intended for use in the drop position only with their weight distribution systems that use either round or trunnion spring bars. I pulled a sample of the Reese shank # RP63971 to take the measurement you requested. As shown in the linked photo that I prepared for you, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the point on the shank where the curvature begins measures 3-1/2-inches.

  • Compatibility of Reese Sway Control Bracket with Brophy Fixed Ball Mount

I recommend using hitch ball # C40007 for a 2-5/16 inch ball or # 40038 for a 2 inch ball. This will work with friction sway bars like # 83660 or # 17200 to help control the sway on your trailer.

  • Recommendations for Extending a Cargo Trailer 12 Inches from the Tow Vehicle
    I have an extension option, but I do not recommend using a hitch extender like part # MT70024. Hitch extenders will reduce the weight capacity of the hitch by half. They also add another piece to the setup which allows for additional movement. Instead, I recommend looking at an extra long or a super extra long ball mount. An extra long ball mount, like part # BM20, has more than enough capacity to tow your trailer and it measures 13-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to...

  • 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Extension for 2014 Dodge Ram with Front Mount Trailer Hitch
    I do have a solution that might work for you, though it is not an extender. An extender would reduce your tongue weight capacity of the hitch by half, so it is not the best solution for you. Instead, I recommend a long ball mount. Take a look at # 2736 as an example. It is rated for 5,000 pounds and measures 12 inches long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It has a 3/4 inch rise or a 2 inch drop. We also have # BM20.

  • Can Longer Ball Mount Be Used Without Reducing Trailer Hitch Capacity On 2011 Ford Escape
    A longer ball mount is always a better option that using an extender for the reason you mentioned. Using an adapter reduces trailer hitch capacity by fifty percent.

This ball mount measures 13-1/4 inches from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole. And for a ball mount that has...

    What you are describing is a common problem with some factory hitches. You are correct, you do not want to grind away any of the metal of a ball mount to get it to fit. Removing some of the powder coat is acceptable provided you do not also remove any metal. What I recommend is looking for a ball mount with the more rounded corners. A ball mount like # BM20 has more rounded corners but it is rated for 10,000 pounds whereas the mount you referenced is rated for 16K. Cushioned ball...

A step bumper would necessitate a ball mount longer than the recommended # 2923 which is 8-1/2 inches long. Part # BM20 would be a good fit.
