Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 45291 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Reese Titan ball mount, part number 45291. This ball mount fits a 201/2" trailer hitch receiver. It has a gross towing weight capacity of 12,000 lbs., and a tongue weight of 1,200 lbs. It provides a drop, but not a rise. This item cannot be turned upside down and used as a rise, as many ball mounts are, so keep that in mind. You will only be able to use this as a drop.

The drop from the top of the ball platform to the top of the shank is 7-3/4". From the center of the hitch pin hole here to the center of the ball mount here is 10-1/2". The diameter of the hitch pin hole is 1-1/4". That should just about do it for our Reese Titan ball mount, part number 45291.

No issues. Very solid mount. All the towing gear that I've bought recently I've gotten from etrailer.com, and I'm very pleased. Lots of good info on the site, great selection, prompt shipping, and they seem genuinely interested in making sure what they sell does what you need it to do. 249471

The Titan Ball Mount was exactly what I needed to get the right drop to level my car hauler. I shopped local auto supply stores and similar ball mounts were $20 more and needed to be "special ordered". Ordering online was easy and the product videos were great! 221910

Ball mount for class V receivers... It leveled out my trailer and does the job without using 2" to 2-1/2" adapters... 459580



- 45291
by:

Pleased with the drop hitch and both the 2" and the 2 5/16" ball. Will be using the bigger ball to move my travel trailer in the drive way. I've ordered from etrailer in the past and always satisfied with the products, as well as the customer service. 442027

by:

Etrailer was the only online distributor that had exactly the hitch I needed for my application. Shipping was quite expeditious and most importantly the hitch fits and functions exactly as I wanted. Would certainly do business with Etrailer again. 182770

Looks well built. Good welds. Heavy construction. Fit well in 2017 Ram 3500 factory receiver. Pin hole lined up perfectly. Pulled a 17' bass boat around for a couple of hours. No clunking or rattling. For a fixed-height class 5 hitch, you can't do much better. Great price & prompt delivery, as usual. 398682

Tried using a cheap 2" from a box store and the reducing sleeve that came with my truck. I ended up having way to much slop and movement with that setup. The 2 1/2" has a much tighter fit and doesnt clunk around every start and stop. Great product. 659958

Comments

Ive had this product for a year now and have had the chance to pull the trailers it was bought to pull. This product works perfect. It is so nice to have a 2.5 drawbar that fits and doesnt have any slop in it. Trailers tow nice a straight and feel solidly connected to the truck. Will definitely come back for future needs.

Great hitch and a perfect drop for many trailers. Also, this hitch now works just fine with Ford SuperDutys with OEM 2.5" receivers. Either Ford or Reese made some design changes since Ford started including 2.5" hitches from the factory (back in 2011ish timeframe many Ford owners had issues with aftermarket ball mounts not fitting their OEM receivers). On my 2015 there isn't even close to an interference. I tried it on a buddies 2015 SD as well, plenty of room. 259302

This is the second one of these I have bought. I have one with a 2" ball and the other with a 2-5/16. Super tough and built to last! I have a 2014 Ram 2500 Longhorn. This is just about perfect drop to haul my trailer with the Razor on it. The bigger ball one I use to move the camper in close area's. It is as heavy as it looks. 242548

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Titan Drop Hitch in Ball Mounts


Very beefy. It was going to get a receiver that had a sliding cushion, but I felt this was going to be more durable. I think it will serve me well. I was a bit disappointed that it can't be used with anti-rattle devices that Etrailer sells. I think it is a tradeoff to get a beefier receiver. I like my choice. 117457

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Titan Drop Hitch in Ball Mounts


I have a truck with a class 5 hitch. Using the 2" to 2 1/2" adapter had a lot of play in it and this ball mount removed that play. The truck and me won't bounce around so much. Thanks for the great deal and fast shipping. Will be shopping with you again. Thanks again. 109463

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Titan Drop Hitch in Ball Mounts


Over the last couple of years, I have purchased different parts for my towing needs from etrailer.com. The parts have ranged from hitch adapters to trailer tires. The customer service from Crystal K., and the quality of the products from etrailer.com have all been the very best that you could expect. I highly recommend that you at least consider etrailer.com for anything that you may need when you are towing or RV'ing. 686838

Impressive - this thing weighs a ton and has a nice thick paint or powdercoated finish. Just what I needed for my GMC 2500HD truck when pulling a 30' boat. 73862

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • 8 inch Drop Ball Mount Recommendation for 2018 RAM 2500 with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
  • We have the Draw Tite ball mount part # 45291 that fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch like what you have and has an 8 inch drop which is the closest fixed ball mount we have to 10 inches of drop. This has a capacity of 12,000 lbs too. Otherwise you'd have to look into an adjustable ball mount like the part # WS10-25 which does have 10 inches of drop.

  • Ball Mount with 4 to 6 Inch Drop for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • B&W ball mount # BWBMHD30214 has a 6 inch drop and will fit the 2-1/2 inch Ford receivers. It is rated for 16,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 1,600 pounds tongue weight. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • Ball Mount for 2-1/2-Inch Hitch That Gives 8-Inches of Drop
  • The Convert-A-Ball 2-1/2-Inch Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSCV-6 provides height drop of 6-inches but since they do not offer one like it with 8-inches of drop you can instead check out the items on the linked page which provide 8-inches of drop. These include both fixed ball mounts like 12K Draw-Tite # 45291 and 20K Curt # C45460 and adjustable ball mounts like Bullet Proof # ED258.

  • 2-1/2 inch Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a Ford Hitch
  • The issue with the Ford factory 2-1/2 inch receiver is that the radius of the rounded corners is different than the radius of the rounded corners on the Titan shank you mentioned. It may not be the solution you had in mind, but the only ball mounts we have that will fit a 2-1/2 inch hitch and give you the amount of drop you need would be an adjustable ball mount like the part # DTSTBM6825.

  • Ball Mount to Fit a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver with 6 Inches of Drop
  • We have a couple ball mounts that are going to be very close to what you're looking for. The Curt Ball Mount # 45291 is a fixed ball mount that has 7-3/4 inches of drop and 10-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It also has a maximum tongue weight of 1,200 pounds. However, it is steel and not aluminum. You also need a hitch ball # C40030. Another option is the Fastway Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2625 that's rated up to 1,800 pounds...

  • Ball Mount with 8 Inch Drop Rated for 15,000 Pounds for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch on a 2017 Ford F-250
  • The closes ball mount we carry with those specs is # 45291 which is rated for 12,000 pounds and has 7-3/4 inches of drop. It has a ball hole diameter of 1-1/4 inches so in order to use a Convert-A-Ball interchangeable ball set such as # 902B you would need to use reducer bushing # F-2. Please note that the interchangeable ball sets have a maximum capacity of 10,000 pounds so the ball mount would be limited to that.

  • Recommend Ball Mount To Clear Rear Bumper of 2008 Toyota Sienna
  • We do have a ball mount that should work well for your towing setup, but, the item you referenced, Forged Ball Mount, part # 40332, will not provide the 7 inches of clearance from the pin hole to the edge of the bumper. The item you selected, Titan Ball Mount, part # 45291, cannot be used in the rise position, so it will not work for your towing setup either. A good solution to provide rise to keep your trailer fairly level when towing and to clear your rear bumper would be the Curt...

  • Is Ball Mount Adapter # A81008 Needed to Install Rockstar Mudflaps While Using Brophy Reducer # HR26
  • To use the Rockstar Mudflaps on the # HR26 reducer you will need to use the Ball Mount Adapter # A81008 if you do not have a 2 inch ball mount installed as well. If you have a ball mount in the adapter then the mud flaps can be installed on it. If you're using the reducer as a location to install the mud flaps then the # A81008 is needed. Another option instead of the # HR26 is to install a 2-1/2 inch ball mount with a long shank like # 45291.

  • Ball Mount with 8-Inches of Drop for Use in 2-1/2-Inch Hitch
  • We can offer you a choice of fixed and adjustable type ball mounts in your required 2-1/2-inch size that give you the 8-inches of drop. You can see all on the linked page. For a fixed ball mount you can use Draw-Tite # 45291. Be sure to choose a hitch ball that has the correct 1-1/4-inch diameter shank to fit this, such as 2-5/16-inch ball # C40030. If you prefer a multi-ball adjustable mount you might consider the Weigh Safe # WS8-25.

  • Can a Ball Mount for a 2-1/2 Inch Class V Trailer Hitch be Used in the Rise Position
  • Depending on the ball mount, you can use it in the rise or drop position. Some ball mounts, like # 45291, can only be used in the drop position. The Reese Titan Ball Mount, # RP45323, that comes in the etrailer Ball Mount Kit, # EBMK25518, can be used in the rise or drop position. It will provide 3-1/2 inches of rise or 5 inches of drop. I have included a link to our FAQ article on choosing the right ball mount for you.
