Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45270 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C45270. This is the Curt, class three draw bar. It's going to be made from a study steel construction. It's going to feature a hollow shank here on the back side. It is going to have a nice corrosion resistant, black gloss, powder coat finish, so it's going to stand up really well to the elements. You don't have to worry about rust or corrosion for quite some time. This goes through a high quality manufacturing process, it's CNC machined for strong consistent cuts and welds.

You can see right here, it's got some nice welds on it, nice and smooth, and it goes through a seven stage washing method so it's going to deliver that nice, clean, smooth surfacing. Now you can use this in either the drop position or you can use it in the rise position, whatever position is going to work best to make sure that your towing as level as possible. See here at the back we're going to have a five eighth inch diameter pin hole. Your hitch pin and clip or hitch pin and lock is going to be sold separately, if you don't already have one you can find those on our web sight. The product is made right here in the USA, it's designed for two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers. It's going to offer a gross towing weight of seventy five hundred pounds with a maximum tongue weight of seven hundred and fifty pounds. A few measurements I want to go over with you real quick.

We're going to take a measurement of the ball hole diameter. That's going to give us a diameter of one inch. The thickness of the draw bar, that's this right here, that's going to measure three quarters of an inch. Taking a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank, that's going to give us a measurement of two and one half inches. And if we take a measurement from the center of our hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole, this right here, that's going to give us a measurement, looks to be, right around thirteen inches.

If we had to go with an exact measurement I'd say about thirteen and one eighth of an inch. Overall length from edge to edge, that's going to give us a measurement of about seventeen and three eighths of an inch. Now with it installed in the drop position, that'd be this position here, if we take a measurement from the inside top edge of the receiver to our hitch to the top of the ball platform, that measurement is going to give us a measurement of about three and three quarters of an inch. Even though you'll notice right here, it says we've got a four inch drop and a two inch rise, these are rounded off measurements but we're wanting to give you exact measurements. A drop of three and three quarter if you install in the rise position, measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of the ball platform, that's going to give you a rise of about two and a half inches. We're going to show you how it installs inside of a trailer hitch. Very simple process.

Slide it in until your pin holes a-line up, then all you have to do in insert you pin and clip or your hitch pin and lock to secure it in your hitch. That's going to do it for today's look at part number C45270, this is the Curt, class three draw bar.

Nice ball mount. Exactly as described in product description and video. The long length of the ball mount provides clearance from the trailer jack when my tail gate is down. The 13.5" length also facilitates tighter turning radius. 607260

I needed a bit longer ball mount so I ordered the Curt 4" drop with the 13" long shank drawbar and it is much more than I expected. I was wanting adequate to pull a motorcycle trailer, but the Curt turned out to be high quality, nice paint with more towing capacity and tongue weight than my previous ball mount. I highly recommend it. 528211

Great product, just what I needed so that my tailgate would clear the tongue jack on my trailer. Product is well made and appears to have a good durable finish. 388586



- C45270
by:

etrailer's measurements of this item are accurate. The finish is nice out of the box but it seems like a dipped plastic coating. There's no way it could hold up to any kind of real-world use. I imagine after just a few trips it will look like a rented mule. You know, with patches missing and flies buzzing around and little stink lines coming off. After my 5,000 mile round trip I predict I will fix it with fire (a propane torch) and some enamel spray paint. 410445

Excellent service from etrailer! Required an extended hitch so I could open the truck tailgate with the trailer attached and has done the job it was purchased for. The finish looks as new as it did when I bought it a year ago. 696813

My 2010 Tundras tailgate would hit my pop-up campers trailer jack when hooked up; and I could not fully lower the tailgate. My dog was not a fan. Needed an extended hitch, and this one was a solid 5” longer than the typical size I’m accustomed to. Works like a charm. As always, fast shipping and quality products, thanks again etrailer! 670205

Product is per specs. Attached is why I needed and how it helped me attach the mud flaps and still be able to plug in my 7 pin. I was really happy that I didn’t have to pay two day shipping, and it still arrived in that amount of time just like it said it would. 667045

Not usually a fan of any extra length between the truck and trailer, I opted for this extended ball mount so I could drop the tailgate without hitting the trailer jack. This did the trick. But this not a mount you should leave on your truck after detaching the trailer! Ouch! 633601

I have not had a chance to actually use the bar, because it is for my camper, and is winterized for the season, but I measured it to make sure it's long enough for me to drop the tailgate on my truck with the camper hooked up. It has a nice finish. It's well built, and the price was good. 452021

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Solution for Tailgate That is Hitting A-Frame Jack
  • While your frustration is understandable and we have a solution for you, I wouldn't be able to tell you with absolute certainty that using the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-3755 will stop your tailgate from hitting the jack. The reason is, A-frame jacks like these mount to a specific place on your trailer and if your tailgate comes down at that point, they will hit. What you can do instead is use a side-frame mount jack like the Fulton Marine Jack # HD50000101 or you...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender to Clear Truck Camper on 2016 Ram 2500
  • The dual tube TorkLift extenders that you mentioned do offer a longer extension but they are designed specifically for dual receiver trailer hitches from TorkLift like # TLC1204. Unfortunately there is not one currently available for your 2016 Ram 2500 so your only option will be with a standard single tube extender. The longest standard extender we have available is an 18 inch long unit like the Curt # C45796. This inserts into a 2 inch receiver like what you already have on your truck...

  • Will The Hidden Hitch Ball Mount 80232 Work With Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack
  • Yes, The Hidden Hitch Ball Mount part # 80232 is ideal for the Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack part # C18013. The Curt C18013 requires a 2 inch ball mount so this one is perfect and measures 15-3/4 inches Long so it provides a lot of clearance. Our extra long ball mounts only come in 2 inches but if you are asking about the 2 inch drop then we do carry the Curt Ball Mount part # D-28 that measures 14-1/4" Long with a 6 inch drop. If you need less drop than 6 inch we carry, 13 inch Long Curt...
    view full answer...

  • Why are Some Ball Mounts Longer Than Others?
  • The reason some ball mounts have different lengths is simply to allow for more clearance between the tow vehicle and trailer. Some people like a longer ball mount if, for example, they want to be able to open the tailgate of their truck when the trailer is attached. Something like the Curt # C45270, which is 13" long may allow that while Curt # C45010, which is 8-1/4" long, may not. I've added a link to each of our ball mounts for you to take a look at.

  • Your number one priority with picking out a ball mount needs to be going with one that allows the trailer to tow as level as possible.

The ball mount we offer with a 2 inch rise is the Curt Class III Drawbar # C45270. This is considered an extra long ball mount, measuring 13 inches from the hitch pin hole to the ball hole.

A rack like this is suitable as long as you have plenty of turning clearance between the vehicle and trailer. The width of your bikes come into play here too. Sometimes an extra-long ball mount like # C45270 will be needed to provide enough clearance for turns. There are other options for bike transport that might be better. If you...

Instead, the Reese Hitch Extender # RP11004 can be used to tow, will extend 18 inches, and has a GTW of 4000 lbs. Another solution is to go with an extra long ball mount like the Curt # C45270 which is 13 inches long. It's rated for 7500 lbs. GTW and 750 lbs. TW which is still enough for your Rockwood.

  • Is the Curt Ball Mount part # C45270 a Hollow or Solid Shank Ball Mount
  • The Curt Ball Mount part # C45270 that you referenced is a hollow shank accessory. It may seem counterintuitive but hollow shank accessories are actually stronger than solid ones and would be considerably lighter. This ball mount has a 7,500 lb trailer capacity and 750 tongue weight capacity. Based on the weight of your trailer this ball mount should work well. For a 2-5/16 inch ball to fit this you would want the part # C40007, for a pin and clip # F-4 or for a locking one part # e98880.

  • The sway control bracket part # RP26003 would fit on the ball mount part # C45270 that you referenced. You would need to go with a much longer shanked hitch ball like the part # 63849 to ensure you have enough threads to attach the nut.

  • Hitch Ball Shank Length Recommendation for Sway Control Tab Used with Curt Ball Mount C45270
  • The sway control tab # RP26003 is 3/8 inch thick. The hitch balls recommended for the Ball Mount # C45270 are 2-1/8 inches long and 1 inch in diameter. So for a ball with a long enough shank you would want the part # C40020 for a 2 inch ball or part # 105TB for a ball that comes with several ball diameters.

  • Recommendation for Adding Clearance Between RV and Trailer
  • Using a hitch extender like the Tow Ready # HE18 referenced in your question is a great option for giving you some additional clearance between your RV and trailer. Using this or any other hitch-mounted adapter will reduce the tongue weight of the hitch by 50 percent, but it will not affect the towing capacity/horizontal pull. You should have no issue pulling your 2,000 pound boat with your 7,500 pound hitch, even when using an adapter like this one. Another option to consider that...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Draw Tite Hitch # 41945 Towing 18 inch Tall Coupler Trailer Height
  • When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 41945 on a similar Ford Van as your 2005 model we found the distance from the top of the hitch opening to the ground to be 16-3/4 inches. So if your coupler height is 18 inches that means you'd want a rise of right at 1-1/4 inches. Which the closest to that we offer is # C45270 which has a 2 inch rise and would work well. For a 2-5/16 inch ball you'd want the part # 63847 or for a 2 inch ball part # A-90. The trailer tongue weight will pull...

  • Longer Ball Mount for More Clearance Between 2016 Chevy Traverse and Boat Trailer
  • A longer ball mount will not cause you any problems as far as capacity or clearances or anything like that. So, if the Curt ball mount # C45270 has the proper capacity (7,500 pound gross trailer weight and 750 pounds tongue weight) then it will work with your 2016 Chevy Traverse. The Hidden Hitch ball mount 80228 has a little more rise, 2-3/4 inches, and the capacity is lower (6,000/600) and is shorter. Since the Curt ball mount is more like what you are looking for I would go with it.

  • The best option for clearing the open tailgate on your Ford F-150 when towing a trailer is with an extended ball mount like the Curt # C45270. This ball mount measures 13 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the ball hole and has a gross towing weight capacity of 7,500 pounds.

I have included a short video review on this product for...

  • Determining Clearance Needed Between Travel Trailer and Tow Vehicle Rear Bumper
  • There isn't a specific clearance number that is needed between a travel trailer and tow vehicle rear bumper, as it will really depend on several factors including the width of both the trailer and your motorhome. A V-Nose trailer like what you have will also reduce any potential for turning clearance issues. What I recommend doing is taking your motorhome and trailer out to an empty parking lot so you can make some slow, controlled turns. You can have a buddy observe how close the trailer...
