Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45016 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number C45016. This is the Curt Class One or Class Two Draw Bar. It's going to provide a two and five eighth inch rise or a three and one quarter inch drop and it's rated at 3500 pounds. This is made from a sturdy steel construction providing a nice solid shank here on the back side. It is corrosion-resistant due to the black gloss powder coat finish. It goes through a high quality manufacturing process.

It is CNC machined for strong consistent cuts and welds and it goes through a seven stage washing method that's going to deliver a smooth clean surface. Both the drop and rise positions are available with this mount to ensure level towing. This does require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock, those items are sold separately. You can refer to our website underneath the related products of this product page to view those items or go to our website and type in part number PC2 to view this item. This is designed to fit an inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter trailer hitch receiver. It is class one or a class two compatible.

This is going to provide a gross towing weight of 3500 pounds with a maximum tongue weight of 350 pounds. Now, when choosing your hitch ball you need to be sure that it has a three quarter inch diameter when it comes to the shank because when we measure the diameter of our ball hole it measures three quarters of an inch. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole is going to measure nine and three eighths of an inch. Then the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of our ball mount is going to measure an inch and a half. The measurement from the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright portion is going to measure six and one quarter inches. Now, with this installed in the drop position this is going to provide a drop of three quarters or three and one quarter inches that's going to measure from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the ball platform.

If you we're to install this in the rise position it's going to provide a rise of two and five eighths of an inch. Again, measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the ball platform. It is a simple installation. The shank is going to be the portion it's going to slide in to the receiver tube of your hitch. You slide it in until you have the hitch pin holes in line with each other and then you will take your hitch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock, slide it in the appropriate holes to fully secure everything together. That's going to complete today's review of part number C45016, that's the Curt Class One or Class Two Draw Bar rated at 3500 pounds.

I have been impressed with you guys so far. Your prices are good and to have what I need. I went on {a different website}, but I like to deal with people, and talk to them when its needed, {that other website} is a selling machine, they are good with returns, but they really don't know their products, and rely on reviews to give you answers. Anyway, I will be calling you guys very soon to buy a wiring harness, and I,d like to pick one of your technicians brain for the right harness. Thanks Again for being out there 634199

Online ordering was a breeze and the item shipped within a day or two of ordering. etrailers let me know via e-mail when the order was filled and provided a tracking number. The drawbar was well packaged and quality is perfect....good welds, solid paint to prevent corrosion and the holes for the pin and ball are perfectly sized...no slop and not too tight. I would purchase again from etrailer 443076

It had a few burs that had to be smoothed off to fit in the receiver and for the pin to go through but other than that it should be good to go for the kayak trailer. 396956

This, and the trailer hitch I purchased earlier are good, solid products. There was a bit of very hard paint preventing the hitch key from going through the hole, mut a half minute with a round file cleaned it out. The paint is TOUGH so I guess that will be good for long wear. The tongue had blown through the end of the shipping package, but there was no damage. The whole experience with etrailers.com was excellent, especially with the video instructions. 440476

I needed to tow a trailer with a 2" ball. My original ball mount has a 1 7/8" ball installed. I had previously tried to change a ball on a hitch and destroyed the nut and damaged the underside of the ball mount. The lock washer had done a great job in keeping the nut from coming off. I dreaded trying to remove my 1 7/8" ball to install a new one that I would only use once. I decided to buy a new ball mount and mount the new 2" ball. This ball mount is so inexpensive that I realized I could have both ball sizes permanently mounted for use in either ball size. 598151

A good product! This is the second hitch I have installed using etrailer and it went as well as the first. Not being a super skilled Tech it took longer than expected, but for me it was a project that needed to be done, and I enjoy a good project when it comes together, no matter if it took a little longer due to an average person's tool inventory and simple jack stands and floor jacks. The instruction videos are the best I have seen as of yet. If you enjoy working with your hands, I recommend etrailer products! 414515

  • Towing Capacity of a 2016 Ford Fusion SE and Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations
    The towing capacity of the 2016 Ford Fusion is going to depend on the powertrain in the vehicle: 1.5L GTDI models have a 1,000 pound towing capacity 2.0L GTDI models have a 2,000 pound towing capacity 2.5L TiVCT models have a 1,000 pound towing capacity 2.7L GTDI models have a 1,000 pound towing capacity None of the models can tow 2,800 pounds. If yours has the 2.0 liter motor then that would have the highest capacity at 2,000 pounds. You are limited to the capacity of the vehicle...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for a 2006 Toyota Sienna Ball With a Class II Trailer Hitch
    The recommended ball mount for your 2006 Toyota Sienna would have a 2-5/8 inch rise, like Curt ball mount # C45016. This would put the hitch ball at the most common trailer height, but to ensure it will work with your particular setup, I would recommend taking a couple simple measurements. First, measure from the ground to the top of your class II hitch opening. Then, with your trailer level, measure from the ground to the flat bottom of the trailer coupler. The difference between...

The Curt hitch part # C12091 is a fit for your 2013 Ford Fusion and it has a 3,500 lb trailer weight capacity. You would need to verify your towing capacity by checking the owners manual as well.

  • Ball Mount and Roof Rack for 2015 Ford Escape
    Let's start with the ball mount; since your Escape has a towing package and a hitch, you should start with a ball mount. You mentioned a Class II hitch so I am assuming your receiver is 1-1/4". As for the correct rise or drop, since your camper company specified 16 inches to the top of the ball you'll only need to measure from the ground to the top of your hitch receiver and find the difference between the two measurements. If the height of your hitch is greater, you will need a ball...

  • What is Required to Tow Lets Go Aero LittleGiant With 2017 Ford Fusion?
    It is not necessary to have a 2" receiver to tow the Let's Go Aero LittleGiant TLK864; this utility trailer has a coupler which attaches to a 2" hitch ball. That size hitch ball is what you'd need, along with a ball mount. The correct ball mount for a 1-1/4" hitch on your 2017 Fusion Sport would be Curt Class II Drawbar # C45016. This drawbar has a 3/4" hitch ball hole diameter, and the 2" hitch ball that would fit is the Curt # A-82. If you have this, along with a wiring harness such...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation with More Rise than Curt # C45016
    The Curt ball mount part # C45016 has a rise of 2-5/8 inches so for a ball mount with more rise you'd want the # C45522 if you were looking for 3-7/8 inches of rise instead. This also fit a Class II hitch. You would want to check out the FAQ article I attached below on picking out the correct rise/drop ball mount as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2015 Ford Fusion Energi
    Officially we have to recommend that you always stay with the recommendation of the manufacturer on towing as they are who the warranty of the vehicle is with and they are who would have tested the vehicle for towing. That being said we realize that a lot of people ignore their owners manual and tow with vehicles that aren't designed for it and allegedly do not have any problems. So our hitch manufacturers make hitches for these vehicles as there is a demand for them but it's a situation...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2010 VW GTI MK6
    For your 2010 VW GTI, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11000. This is a system rated for 2000 lbs max and 200 lbs tongue weight max, so you will want to make sure your trailer doesn't exceed that and that your towing capacity in your owners manual allows for that. The manufacturer specs trump the hitch ratings, so you will go off that capacity if it is less than the hitch is rated for. For a ball mount, I recommend the Curt Class II Drawbar...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring and Ball Mount Recommendation for 2005 Volvo XC70
    The hitch I recommend for your 2005 Volvo XC70 is the Curt part # C12318 that you referenced. This has the highest capacity of all of the hitches we offer for your vehicle and will install easily too. For trailer wiring the # 119147KIT is what I recommend as it has the most reliable converter box. For a ball mount you'd then want the part # C45016, pin and clip part # F-4, 2 inch ball part # 19258, or 1-7/8 # 19256.

    According to owner's manual for your 2008 Dodge Caliber the gross trailer (GTW) and tongue weight (TW) rating of your vehicle with the 2.0L I4 engine is 1,000 lbs and 150 lbs respectively. Therefore, I cannot recommend you use this vehicle to haul your motorcycle (206 lbs) and carrier (36 lbs) as this would exceed the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle. The only way I can offer you to haul your motorcycle is on the back of a trailer. In order to use this trailer you would need a trailer...

This hitch has been tested to hold a maximum tongue weight of 200 lbs and a maximum trailer towing weight of 2,000 lbs when loaded. A riding lawn mower on a small trailer is probably at close to the maximum capacity of this hitch, so I recommend calculating the weights before doing this as your owners manual states 1000 lbs towing max and 100 lbs tongue weight.

    I cannot recommend that you tow a 1,100 lb trailer with your 2016 Ford Fusion SE that has a maximum towing capacity of 1,000 lbs for liability reasons but in all honesty, you would most likely be just fine. Personally, I wouldn't really be concerned with towing over capacity by only 100 lbs. I would just avoid hilly areas if at all possible. In order to tow a trailer with your Fusion you will need a trailer hitch, trailer wiring harness, and ball mount/hitch ball. Also, if you will...
