Video Transcript for Hidden Hitch Ball Mounts 80232 Review

Today, we're reviewing Part Number 80232 from Hidden Hitch. This is a Class 3 Ball Mount with a 3-1/4 inch rise or a 2-inch drop and a super extra long shank. The towing capacity rating is 6,000 pounds and the tongue weight is rated at 600 pounds. As you can see the shank is hollow and it is cut at an angle. It makes it a little easier for you to slide this into your receiver. This uses a ball with a 1-inch shank diameter.

There is a 3-1/4 inch rise from the top of the shank to the top of the ball mount platform and a 2-inch drop from the top of the shank to the ball mount platform. Let's see how this measures up, from the center of the hitch pinhole, which is here, to the beginning of the ball platform is 11 inches and it is 16 inches from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of the ball hole. This will accommodate Class 3, that's 2 by 2 inch ball mount accessories. And that's it for Part Number 80232, the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount Class 3 with a 3/4 inch rise and a 2-inch drop.

I bought this product because it was the only hitch long enough to be used on my golf cart and stick out past the rear seat foot plate. It worked perfectly and it’s heavy duty would recommend this to a friend 572233

Needed to move my hitch location back so I could open my tailgate with the trailer attached. (tailgate hit the trailer jack) This solved the problem without losing towing capacity. The product was delivered earlier than promised and etrailer kept in constant contact during the order / shipping process. Great product and an even better retailer. 568746

The biggest issue I have is that the video on the receiver said the rise can go up or down. I try to put the ball in the hole in the rise position and it does not seat all the way the way it does in the down position. Not sure if I can Seat by drawing down the nut or not . 504052


Comments

Brad, thank you for your review. The ball should seat once you torque it down to the spec in the hitch ball installation instructions.

I have an RV with a rear engine/radiator. I needed something that would move the bicycle rack as far away as possible. This worked great, plenty of room for air flow.

Just the solution I was looking for! My Jeep's spare tire hits the utility trailer's hitch latch, preventing me from opening the tailgate. I could flip the old drawbar over so the hitch is lower, but then the trailer would not be level while on the hitch. (maybe just aesthetics, but I am a little picky about stuff). An additional bonus is that this helps make backing the trailer up a little easier since it put more distance between the tow vehicle and the trailer's axle. Etrailer was the only place I could find the extended length drawbar, the price is excellent! 155193

I still stand behind my reviews. Excellent products and a you are a great company!I tell anyone who asks where I get my trailer parts from :

Product came just as described and fit perfectly for what I needed. I used it for a hitch mounted on the frame of the rear of my fifth wheel rv. Hitch was mounted at the very end of the I-beam style frame i had on rv but I wasn't comfortable with the length of a standard size ball mount receiver. It needed to be longer. This product was exactly what I needed to complete my rv hitch setup. Thanks e-trailer ! 142896

This extended hitch ball mount fit my 2004 Nissan Frontier perfect. After I installed my new hidden hitch I was worried because it was so far back underneath the truck. I thought I would have trouble finding a hitch mount that would extend out past the bumper. The straight part comes to the end of the bumper and only the drop down part sticks out, making it a perfect fit. Also, the drop is perfect for my small 4 x 8 trailer. 423826

I got what I ordered quickly. I still need to confirm I have the right parts to hook up to the trailer, but your customer service and advice on your website is awesome! Best customer service I've seen so far for any type of product I've ordered! One suggestion is more info on which ball type to choose. There are too many choices. I figured any 2" ball with 1" dia medium shaft should work. 16710

etrailer was the only site that carried this length. Due to the length this will not play into your tongue weight, you can still use the max tongue weight even at this length 57405

The products are still in place and working great. No issues or concerns. They have been through a harsh NewEngland winter being towed with a 4 place snowmobile trailer - worked great..

This solved a problem for me. I have a Chinook RV which has a rear entry door with electric retracting steps. The tow hitch receiver is mounted on the back of the chassis behind the steps so an extra long ball mount was needed and this was the only one I found. It turned out to ba tailor made, the exact length I needed. The ball and locks are excellent quality too. Thank you for the prompt delivery and great service. 44295

Hard to find item found We have a home with a large back yard with the access layed out so,that only a single vehicle can make the turn around the corner without a trailer,even utility or boattrailer.I had a front hitch reciever on my Suburban and I wanted a long hitch extender for easier handling..It helped even more with the use of my Polaris Ranger,which is short enough and powerful enough to make it around the corner but its hitch receiver is practically on the real axle and the control of the trailer especially backing it is very poor.Instead of an extremely long trailer tongue this extension helps it too. The extender is perfect,nicely finished and arrived within a few days.I want to mention,that the price was very reasonable even with shipping. 5021

The super extra long ball mount is perfect, gives the extra distance between tow vehicle and trailer because without the extra long mount there is only 32" between vehicle and trailer wall. A friend borrowed this trailer and when he backed up the trailer hit the rear tail light and crushed the corner of his truck. With the extra long mount at least the trailer corner wall will clear if this ever happens again. Also great if you have a rear mounted spare tire 171355

This is perfect for vehicles with a rear mounted spare tire. I am using it for my 05 Jeep Liberty, to clear the spare tire before I had remove the spare tire and either leave it home, or put it in the limited spaced cargo area. Now I can leave the spare in its place. I do not recommend leaving the ball mount in the receiver, for the following reasons 1. theft 2 it hurts really bad when you smack a knee or your shin on it unloading or loading cargo. 3. leaving it out in the weather unnecessarily and in salty areas like near the beach, or in the rust belt will cause the mount and your ball to rust. 4. Jeep owners manual advises not to leave the ball mount in the receive unused. 299338

Needed to get more clearance between boat trailer and truck so I could still lower tailgate or make tight turns without worrying. Didn't want to give up towing capacity or tongue weight by using a hitch extension. This solved my problem and fit well in the Class 3 factory tow hitch that came with my 2013 Toyota Tacoma. 98340

I needed a ball mount with a long insert so that I could tow a trailer with my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Because the Jeep has the spare tire on the back I needed the additional length to keep the trailer from touching the tire when turning. As with the last Hidden Hitch I had the quality is first class and service from etrailer was courteous and professional. 146401


Comments

Still working well, I no longer have the Jeep but continue to use it with my Ram truck. The additional length allows me to open the tailgate with the trailer attached.

I have a 2004 RAV 4 and I was trying to get my ball away from the spare tire carrier. I think I probably would have been fine with the next size (shorter) ball mount and still got the job done. The good news is that with the 2 inch drop, I can open the rear door and it just rubs the seal at the bottom of the door a little bit, but I can still easily open the door. I did not want to drop the ball any lower, So this works out well for my rig. 35846

product was as advertised. Was packaged well and arrived in a few days. Bought it to move my camper back far enough to get my tailgate open. It did that. Probably need one with a 4" lift though as the camper is low when hooked up. Didn't take into account that by putting a four wheeler in the back of truck that it will hang lower. 149861

Been working great. I did buy another one with a 4 lift to accommodate the weight of my four wheeler.

A quality insert. I have had trouble finding an insert with the rise and drop plus the length of this insert. The weld is very good. I needed the extra length this insert provides because I have steps on the front of my boat trailer to allow me to get into the boat. A regular length inner did not provide the clearance needed when making a slightly tight turn. The bottom step would hit the truck bumper and cause damage that resulted in $1300.00 repair. The service ETrailer provided was outstanding. I placed the order on their web page late in the day . Shortly I received a reply they would be filling the order. The next morning I received a phone call telling an additional item I wanted was back ordered to them. Asked if it was okay to delay shipment until it came in. I agreed to that. They kept me informed to the status and that they were still keeping track of my order. When they were informed of an additional delay on getting me the item they informed me of the additional delay. I asked them to cancel the item and to ship the remaining items. They said they would and I got the shipment the next day. Plus I asked them to let me know when the back order item would be available so I could order it. They said they would. Excellent customer service and quality product a great combination. 236425

The 16" ball mount has served me very well. It allows me to open the rear doors on my van without hitting the LP tanks. This ball mount is hard to find. I ordered feom etrailer since I have had good service in the past. Shortly after I placed the order someone from etrailer called to say it was out of stock and they couldn't say for sure when they would be back in stock. He asked if I wanted to cancel the order. I said no, I will wait for it. I was impressed with the personal service and will continue to give them my business! 539250

The extra long ball mount arrived 3 days after I ordered it, exactly as promised even though one of those three days was a holiday. I checked it out - the fit was perfect and the length was just what I needed. Good price, extra-fast shipping, and perfect size & fit.....can't ask for more than that. I normally pull a 3-rail motorcycle trailer with three dirt bikes on it. We recently added a quad to the mix. Fortunately the quad fit in the bed of my pickup, but only if I left the tailgate down. For the first run, I put the quad in the bed and hooked up the trailer full of bikes to the hitch. Fortunately, my neighbor across the street was watching and was nice enough to come over and point out that the first time I went around a turn, the trailer was going to smack the tailgate (He had done this himself a few years earlier). Oops!! I really needed that longer ball mount for a trip this coming weekend. eTrailer came through again, as always! Thanks folks!!! 56928

I had looked for an extra long ball mount for quite some time. I was to the point I almost made my own having been a welder and fabricator for many years. But I noticed while looking on etrailers site after ordering some tires and wheels that some more web site they sold exactly what I had been looking for. I could not have made one for the price I paid for this one and it would not have been powder coated either. Its very well made - nice and long to get the ball out away from my bumper. I would recommend this to anyone that needs the extra length and I think Hidden Hitch is the only company that makes this and etrailer the only place to purchase one this long also. I love doing business with etrailer they are super and so organized in every way. I ordered mine using USP ground and received it 2 days later - what a deal. Cheers 97192

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • 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...

  • How do I use a Bike Rack and Pull a Trailer at the same time
  • We carry a very handy 2 inch ball mount for this exact application. The part is # D210. The ball mount slides and pins into your hitch and the top receiver will accept 2 inch bike racks and hold them above the ball. The Ball Mount has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity, which means that the bike rack and the bikes on it as well as the trailer tongue weight cannot weigh more than 500 lbs or the tongue weight capacity of the hitch, whichever is lower. We also have a bike rack that clamps...

  • How to Figure Weight Capacity When Using a Hitch Extender or Extra Long Ball Mount
  • One thing to note when using a hitch extender like the Hidden Hitch, # 80307, is that the the tongue weight and towing capacity of your trailer hitch will be reduced by 50 percent due to the increased leverage that is placed on your trailer hitch from your trailer. In your situation, even with the towing capacities of your hitch capacities reduced by 50 percent, you are still limited to the 3,500 lbs gross trailer weight capacity and 350 lbs tongue weight capacity of the hitch extender....

  • Hitch Extension for Truck with In-Bed Camper that Will Allow Me to Tow Short Tongue Trailer
  • Assuming that your truck has an eight foot bed, the best solution would be to use the Titan Hitch Box Extension, # RP45292. This extension requires your truck to be equipped with a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver and is designed to extend the receiver opening 24 or 34 inches away from the truck. At 24 inches the extender has a weight capacity of 6,000 pounds and at 34 inches, 4,500 pounds. The longest extension/ball mount that will work with a standard 2 inch hitch is our Hidden Hitch Super...

  • Safety of Using Hitch Extender and Other Options To Clear Spare Tire on Jeep Liberty
  • Using a hitch extender is safe as long as you stay within the limits specified of 50 percent of the hitch and vehicle load capacity, and 350 lb tongue weight capacity of part # HE06. The other option to provide additional clearance from your spare tire would be to use a longer ball mount. For this, I would recommend Hidden Hitch Ball Mount, part # 80232, which places the center of the hitch ball 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole.

  • If 24 inches was fine before and the new camper is 8 inches longer than the previous one then it would make sense that you would need an extension that is at least 32 inches long. The only extensions we have that are this long require that you have a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver. You would use # RP45292 that you have referenced.

  • Using a Hitch Extender to Reach Past Lowered Tailgate to Tow Trailer and Carry Golf Cart
  • The Blue Ox extender # BX88265 provides 6 inches more extension but is for flat towing a vehicle behind an RV. There are other extensions, such as # HE06 which can be used for towing. With these or any extender it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. For example if the tongue weight capacity of your hitch is 500 pounds, using the extender will reduce it to 250 pounds. So the tongue weight of the trailer cannot exceed 250 pounds.

  • I take it that your Lance camper overhangs the truck bed so you need an extension of some kind. There are a couple of possible solutions. Many extensions will reduce the tongue weight capacity of a trailer hitch by 50 percent. However if you were to use a long ball mount, the capacity is not nearly as affected.

  • First, the CURT Multi-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount, # D900, measures 15-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball. If you are needing 18 inches, this ball mount will come up just a little short. A fixed ball mount, like # 80232, is just a little longer at 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole.

  • Overall Length of Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount 325-GH-1225
  • I went to our warehouse and measured the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1225 for you. From the center of the hitch balls to the nearest of the hitch pin holes the length dimension is 15-3/4-inches; the two hitch pin holes are spaced apart on center by 1-1/2-inches. Please refer to the photo I prepared for you with these dimensions indicated. The longest standard 2-inch ball mount we offer, part # 80232, is 15-3/4-inches long but is rated for only 6000-lbs.

  • Recommendation For Hitch Extender or Longer Ball Mount To Tow Trailer With Dodge Ram 3500
  • I would recommend to use a longer ball mount instead of a hitch extender. When using a hitch extender the tongue weight capacity is reduced by 50 percent, so a hitch that has a 600-lb tongue weight capacity will be reduced to 300 lbs. If you have a 2 inch hitch on your Dodge 3500 truck and use a longer ball mount like the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount, part # 80232, it will not reduce the tongue weight capacity and it measures 15-3/4 inches from the center of hitch pin hole to center of hitch...

  • Recommendation for Carrying Bikes and Towing a Boat at the Same Time with a 2012 Chevy Traverse
  • I do not recommend using an extender because doing so will cut the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. A longer dual purpose ball mount is not available. What I recommend is a different type of bike rack. You could use a towing bike rack like # HR135 and a super extra long ball mount # 80232. With this set up, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rack should measure 7-7/8 inches, which should clear the back of your 2012 Chevy Traverse.

  • Longer Ball Mount Needed to Prevent Trailer from Hitting Truck During Turns
  • The only thing I can think of is to back the truck up to the trailer at the same angle as it was when it was hitting the trailer before. Then back up so that the trailer ball is 6 inches away from the coupler, and see if that is going to provide enough clearance. When using these extenders, keep in mind that your hitch capacity will be DECREASED BY 50 PERCENT, due to the additional leverage that will be exerted on the receiver by moving it out 6 inches. Perhaps a better solution would...

  • Hitch Receiver Extension and Reducer for Towing a Trailer with a Truck Camper
  • There's a couple of ways you can do this. Which way is better will depend on the amount of extension you need. One is to use an extension, like the Curt # C45048 which will give you an extra 24 or 34 inches. Then you will use a ball mount in the extension that also reduces your hitch to a 2 inch receiver. Another is to use a reducer in the 2-1/2 inch receiver. The Reese Titan # 58102 will work for this. Then get an extra long ball mount like the Hidden Hitch # 80232 that is 15-3/4...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Suggestion while using a Towing Bike Rack and Pop Up Camper
  • For use while towing with your pop up camper trailer and hitch mounted towing bike rack, the best option would be to use the Anti-Rattle Device for a 2 inch hitch # 63232. This device will eliminate any additional rattling by pulling the ball mount portion of the hitch to one side. It also provides a secure locking mechanism for your hitch. Please keep in mind that this locking device can only be used on hollow hitch devices, it is also advised to remove this locking mechanism when...

  • Can Smaller Wheels and Tires be Installed on a Jet Ski Trailer to Lower It
  • The backspacing is not really the issue, it is the tire width on your current versus new tires. Most trailer tires have a zero offset meaning the mounting surface of the wheel is in the center of the wheel so the tire width becomes important. A 175/80-13 tire that you currently have is about 6.9 inches wide and 24.1 inches tall. A 205/65-10 like # AM3H390, is 8.3 inches wide and 20.5 inches tall. Regarding tires, this is a huge difference in width and you would have to measure the distance...

  • Hitch Extender to Tow a Trailer for 2011 Ford F-450 with 2017 Mammoth Camper in Bed
  • You might not need a hitch extender. It is possible that a long ball mount will have the length needed to provide clearance for towing the trailer. Ball mount # 80232 measures 16 inches from the center of the pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It is rated for 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight and it has a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop. It fits a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver so if you have the factory 2-1/2 inch receiver you would also need to use a reducer sleeve such as # C45405. A...

  • Tailgate on 2013 Ford F-150 Makes Contact with A-Frame Electric Trailer Jack
  • Stromberg Carlson has vinyl cover # JET-01 you could use for trailer jack # LC285318. But You might be better off using a longer ball mount so that the trailer is a little further away from the truck. This would eliminate contact between the tailgate that the jack. The longest ball mount we have, # 80232 measures 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. But it is only rated for 6,000 pounds.

  • Dimensions Of Curt And Hidden Hitch Long Ball Mounts
  • I went to our warehouse and took some measurements of part # D-26 and part # 80232 for you. The overall length of part # D-26 is 16-1/2 inches. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the ball mount plate is 8-1/4 inches and to the horizontal plane of the ball mount plate it is 10-1/2 inches.

  • Are Ball Mounts Supposed to Sit Flush With the Hitch They Are Used On
  • Having a longer ball mount wouldn't be a problem at all. The biggest issue you may run into is banging your shins on it as it would stick out further than a shorter one. Ball mounts don't have to sit flush with the hitch they are installed into so you would be just fine. We even sell super long ball mounts like the part # 80232 which has a distance of 15-3/4 inches form the pin hole to the ball hole. I attached a help article on trailer towing that you may find informative.

  • Using Extra-Long Ball Mount vs. Hitch Extension When Towing with Jeep That Has Rear Spare Tire
  • When towing with a vehicle like your 2013 Jeep Wrangler that has a rear-door-mounted spare tire you will probably need either a hitch extension like the Curt # C45796 that you referenced, OR you may be able to use an extra-long ball mount, which is actually a preferable solution. There are a few advantages to using a long ball mount versus a separate hitch extension like # C45796. The first is towing capacity. Extensions cause a 50-percent loss in hitch weight capacity. The other advantage...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2015 Ford Transit T250
  • The bumper on the Tranist T150 in the video for trailer hitch # C13193 does have a unique design with that cutout in the center. The regular bumper doesn't have that cut out but the hitch is still the same, even for the T250. You will just need to use accessories that clear the rear bumper so it isn't going to be a problem for you at all. For towing you could use an extra long ball mount, like those I have linked, or even a super extra long ball mount, # 80232, which measures 16 inches...

  • Can Bikes Be Carried at the Front of a 2015 Chevy Tahoe While Towing a Trailer
  • There a few things to consider when carrying bikes in a front hitch such as # 65064 on your 2015 Chevy Tahoe. Driver visibility will be reduced, the bikes could block the lights, and they can also reduce air flow to the motor. Another possible solution is to use the Curt multipurpose ball mount # D210. This will allow you to tow a trailer with the ball mount part and use a hitch bike rack in the receiver part. For this set up there are a couple of things to consider. First, the total...

  • Will Using a Hitch Extension or Extra Long Ball Mount Help When Backing Up Trailer
  • Using a Hitch Extension or Extra Long Ball Mount, like the # 80232, will give you added clearance between the tow vehicle and your trailer which can be helpful when maneuvering but I can't say that it will actually give you more control or slow anything down. Backing up a trailer is an art that I have yet to master and unfortunately other than disconnecting the trailer from your vehicle and using a product like the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover, # STC-V211, practice is...

  • Carrying Bikes and Towing a Travel Trailer at the Same Time

The capacity is 100 pounds total meaning the combined weight of the bike rack you use and the bikes cannot exceed 100 pounds. Another option is to use a towing bike rack such as # HR135 and a long ball mount like # 80232. Or you could use multi purpose ball mount #...
