I ordered the Curt trailer hitch, wiring harness, and ball mount for my jeep. All products are high quality, should last a lifetime. The price is very reasonable and the videos make installation possible by even a not so mechanical minded person. The products are shipped in quality boxes and packed should withstand even rough handling. The shipping was really fast as well. The reps also follow thru with shipping information easy for you to track entire route of the products. I am a very happy camper, comfortable with this company selling quality products for reasonable prices. i will order again, Try them, you will like them too! 339317

I seldom take the time to write a review but I felt compelled to share my excellent overall experience with etrailer.com. I ordered the C13200 trailer hitch receiver, 2" ball, 2" ball mount receiver, pin/clip, and C56217 wiring harness for my 2017 Toyota Highlander XLE. All arrived in no time and in excellent condition. The installation videos and PDF documents are outstanding. I installed the hitch receiver in roughly 45 minutes - includes time to convince brother in-law to come over to help hoist it into place. Wiring harness installation was a breeze, roughly 20 minutes (again, great instructional videos). I could not be happier with the finished product. Thanks etrailer.com for making this a trouble free installation. If you are considering adding a hitch, etc. go no further, you are at the right place...order away. Its very easy to install and you will save a trailer load of cash!!! 849670

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Does Tongue Weight Sag Get Factored In When Picking Out Rise/Drop Ball Mount
    This is a really great question! So ideally you have the trailer sitting as level as possible when you are towing. So that means that if your vehicle suspension is going to sag with the tongue weight of your trailer on the ball mount you'd want to compensate for that with the amount of rise/drop ball mount you select. How this normally works out is that you determine the drop needed (in your case 8 inches) and then go with a ball mount slightly higher like the Curt part # C45100 which...

  • How to Pick Out a Ball Mount to Allow Trailer to Tow Level
    I am sure we have just the ball mount for you, but to determine which one you would need will require you to take a couple measurements. You will need to measure from the top of the hitch opening down to the ground and then from the bottom of the coupler down to the ground when the trailer is sitting perfectly level. Whatever the difference is between these two dimensions is the amount of rise/drop you would need. I attached a help article that covers how to do this as well for you to...

  • Ball Mount for 2016 Subaru Outback with 2 inch Curt Trailer Hitch Installed
    The Curt 2 inch hitch part # C13206 which is a fit for your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon actually doesn't sit too far recessed under the rear bumper of your vehicle. I attached a picture that shows that it actually is almost flush so a ball mount like the part # C45030 that you referenced would be a great choice. For a hitch ball we have the part # 63845 for a 2 inch ball or part # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch ball. For trailer wiring you then would want the Tekonsha kit part # 118467 which...

  • Recommended Way to Measure Trailer Coupler Height for the Proper Ball Mount Rise
    It will not matter if your trailer is loaded or unloaded when measuring, you will just want the trailer to be level when measuring for the proper rise or drop ball mount. The trailer jack will be supporting the trailer and holding it level regardless of the trailer's load. The travel in the trailer's suspension will not have a significant impact on the trailer's coupler height. For your convenience I have linked to this page for your reference a Help Article on ball mounts.

  • Should Trailer Be Loaded or Unloaded When Measuring For Correct Ball Mount Rise/Drop
    You can measure your trailer's coupler height with the trailer loaded or unloaded. The travel in the trailer's suspension will not have a significant impact on the trailer's coupler height. When measuring the coupler height, the trailer jack will be supporting the trailer and holding it level regardless of the trailer's load. I have attached a help article on measuring for the correct ball mount for you.

  • Where is the 7-5/8 inch Length Dimension of the Curt Ball Mount C45030 Taken From
    Check out the picture I attached. I took it from the review video for the # C45030 and it shows the 7-5/8 inch dimension as we took it. The distance is from the center of the ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole. For the # 2923 the same dimension would be 8-1/2 inches.

  • Hitch Ball Reducer Sleeve for Ram 2500 Pickup

  • How to Choose Right Ball Mount for 2010 Honda Odyssey Pulling 2008 Jayco Pop-Up Camper
    Rise and drop is going to be the most important measurement when it comes to a ball mount; getting a ball mount with an extended length will only be necessary if, for example, your hitch is underneath your vehicle quite a bit and you need the added length to clear that amount of space. In order to choose the ball mount with the correct rise and drop, there are a couple measurements you'll need to take. First, make sure both your 2010 Odyssey and 2008 Jayco are parked on level ground;...

  • Recommended Ball Mount Without Hitch Ball for Trailer Hitch Receiver
    We have over 100 options of ball mounts without a hitch ball. The short ball mount is where the issue may come in. I assume you want one that is 2 inches from the receiver opening collar and we don't have that specific measurement as different manufacturers have different collars on their hitches and each one is vehicle specific fit. I recommend the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # C45030 for a 2 inch receiver or # C45518 for a 1-1/4 inch receiver. I've linked the page to all of your...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inches of Drop
    The closest we have is the Curt Ball Mount part # C45030 which has a drop of 2-1/4 inches which would be close enough to the 2-1/2 inch drop you need. For a 2 inch ball you would need the part # 63845 or for 2-5/16 inch ball you would need the part # 63847.

  • What Size Ball Shank Does Curt Ball Mount C45030 Require
    Yes, the ball mount part # C45030 requires a hitch ball that has a 1 inch diameter shank like the # 63845 for a 2 inch ball or the # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch ball.

  • Getting the Correct Parts to Tow a Trailer
    If I'm understanding you correctly the answer is yes you can. Your Explorer has a Class III trailer hitch receiver that measures 2 inches on the inside. This means it must have a Class III ball mount that fits into it to tow a trailer, like part # C45030. I've linked all of our ball mounts that'll fit to this page. On the other side the trailer has a coupler that fits onto the hitch ball. With a trailer that small it's probably a 1-7/8 inch ball. It could be a 2 inch or even a 50...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2020 Kia Telluride
    Hmm, I'm not sure how that happened, but the # 13537 is not a fit for your vehicle, you'll want the # C13420. Curt has confirmed that the # C13420 is indeed a fit on a 2020 Kia Telluride, as you can see in the two install photos I've provided. In order to install the hitch, the spare tire needs to be removed and the exhaust lowered temporarily to allow easier access to the mounting points.

  • 1992 Dodge Ram 250 Conversion Van Hitch Recommendation
    The Zephyr conversion didn't do anything to change the rear bumper and frame area of your 1992 Ram 250 van, so a standard hitch would work great for you. I'd recommend the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # C13041. The hitch has a 6000 lb towing/600 lb tongue weight capacity. If used with a weight distribution system, that would climb to 10,000/1000 lbs. In other words, the hitch will have more towing capacity than the van, although you'll be limited to the actual capacity of the van. The...

    In order to tow a 5x8 U-Haul cargo trailer with your 2018 Mazda CX-9 you will need a trailer hitch, a 4-Way wiring harness, and a ball mount/hitch ball combo. There are two Class III 2 inch trailer hitch receivers available for your CX-9, the Curt # C13284 and the Draw-Tite # 76020. Both feature pretty similar designs and will use the same existing holes in the vehicle's frame but I recommend going with the Curt # C13284 because it offers a slightly more recessed (hidden) receiver and...

  • Parts Needed to Tow 1,500 Pound Trailer with 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13206 that you referenced features a 4,000 pound towing weight capacity so it's more than capable of pulling a 1,500 pound trailer. This trailer weight sits well below its limits. I also took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2017 Subaru Outback and it lists a towing capacity of 2,700 pounds as long as the trailer is equipped with brakes. If the trailer doesn't have brakes the towing capacity drops to 1,000 pounds....

This hitch uses the smaller 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. You also need the ball mount # C45521, pin and clip # F-4, and a 1-7/8 inch ball # A-80 or a 2 inch ball, part # A-82.
