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.

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

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 :

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.

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

Needed to extend the hitch on my side by side. This did just the trick. Now I have room to crank the tongue jack on trailers I want to hook up to. As always, Etrailer did an outstanding job on getting the part to me in a timely manner. 217213

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.

I talked with Jonathan about the hitch prior to submitting the order. good guy. I finally used the hitch to put my boat in, worked great, and the price was very reasonable for a quality product. 229770


Comments

I actually own two, one with a 2 ball. one with 1 7/8 ball. They are strong and make a short tongue trailer manageable Not the only product I have purchased from etrailer, all fine products.

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


Comments

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..

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

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

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

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

George - Thank's for the quick great service. I was told by a local nation wide company that my hitch is no ware in the country to be found and that they do not have any ideal when it would be available. By searching the internet and by luck I found you and you had it in stock. You got it to me very fast and that has made my trip with my trailer possible - we thought our vacation went to pot but because of your company it was on again. Thanks very much for your help and I know where to go in the future and where to refer many of my friends to go. Best regards, Garey 384460

This mount was just long enough for my bike rack to mount to and not interfere with the trailer wheel crank. The service from etrailer.com was excellent.

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

Needed an alternative solution due to support a new trailer and a bike rack. Called and spoke to Lisa who took the time to discuss the options and confirm that everything would work as expected. I was even able to view the online videos and product overviews ahead of placing the order. Everything was delivered promptly and fitting together as expected. Looking forward to getting back on the road with the trailer and the bikes. 353187

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

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

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

I chose this super long ball mount for my Jeep Liberty, which due to the mounting of the spare tire can be a problem for towing a trailer that needs a rise rather than a drop. I used this ball mount in the 3/4" rise position (upside-down) and I can now hitch my boat trailer with surge breaks and it clears the spare tire, just barely. Worked very well for my needs, and appears to be very sturdy construction. 26004

I searched the Internet for hours before finding a long shaft ball mount that would allow me to make sharper turns with boat trailers on the front hitch of my truck. The mount is well built with a great finish and should easily meet its 6,000 lbs. spec. Etrailer web site was easy to use, and the mount was delivered the day after I ordered it. The packaging of the mount was close to bullet proof. 115078

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

This extension was just what I needed for my 06 jeep liberty,with the e-trailer 2"ball extension I can now pull my trailer without removing the spare tire off back door,plenty of clearance to open back door as well and with the drop of the hitch with the 2" ball trailer is level,after a year of use the chrome has not wore off and powder coating on hitch is still good,would highly recommened. 332450

Seems fine quality. Shipping and replies quick. Only comment would be that I wish these came in a longer length. Perhaps the overall tongue weight capacity could be improved by a longer and thicker tubing. But that is no complaint about etrailer. This is the only place that I found that sells one this long. So thank you. Have a great day. Wayne U.S. Navy 203787

I have a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the spare tire on the rear door which causes clearance problems with some trailers, this product eliminates those problems by bringing it out past the spare tire.

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 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.

The product arrived quickly and as advertised, paint work is acceptable and function is excellent. Having a few extra inches helps keep from scratching/denting bumpers and does not appreciably increase tongue weight. I would recommend this product and etrailer for prompt, courteous service. 7750

This hitch ball mount is reallllly well built. Even better is the service I received. I ordered it two days ago and it arrived today carefully packed and in perfect condition. Do be aware that the pin doesn't come with it so if you order one be sure to order a pin to go with it. 289734


Comments

I purchased it to use to mount an amateur radio antenna. The hitch is great but it didnt work well for the antenna so it you ever want a bargain on a hidden hitch ball mount, just let me know. The hitch wasnt the problem. The location of the antenna was. So after a year, it is, sorry to say, collecting dust!! I hope things are going well for you and your company.

Product works perfectly for intended use. It allows extra clearance on the back end of my Can Am Commander Side by Side so that I can get trailers on without worrying about damage to the rear bumper and the extra effort of hooking the hitch on way underneath the machine. 255045

The two items I ordered are excellent quality and fit my truck to a T! I needed to extend my 2" ball back about 30" to get out past my camper. I also got the 24" extender for the 2" receiver for the total of 30" I have a small ATV trailer to pull with it. 60381

Once I found this drawbar on etrailer.com I was convinced to order it by the excellent pictures of its application for a Jeep Liberty which has the spare tire mounted on the liftgate and needs the extra-long bar to get the ball past the tire. Thanks for the pix! 165496

This works great - we needed to leave the tailgate down and still pull the trailer. Perfect solution...an extended hitch connection. The tail gate can remain down and even if we take a very sharp corner the tail gate does not hit the front of the trailer! 214678

I actually only bought this to deter women tailgaters. It's a beast! It's super long and definitely seems to be working so far. The ordering process was super easy and it arrived before they said it would. I'll definitely be ordering from these guys again! 235852

Ask the Experts about this Hidden Hitch Ball Mounts
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 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....

  • 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...

  • 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 your ball mount requires a larger rise...

  • Trailer Hitch Extension for Towing a Trailer with a Truck Bed Camper in a 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually
  • 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. If you can tell me what type of trailer hitch you have I can determine if it will work or if you will need to add a proper hitch to get it to work. Otherwise...

  • Trailer Hitch Extension to Tow a Boat Trailer with a GMC Sierra 2500 with a Lance Camper
  • 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. A ball mount like # 80232 measures 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. I have linked a video review for you. I have also linked all...

  • Will Using a Long Ball Mount Reduce the Tongue Weight Capacity of a Trailer Hitch
  • 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. One of the longest ball mounts we have is an unconventional type. Take a look at the Roll-A-Hitch Cushioned, Telescoping/Swiveling...

  • 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...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for Pulling a Pop Up Camper with a 2011 Toyota Rav4 with Rear Spare Tire
  • The standard ball mount that is recommended for the 2011 RAV4 has a 2 inch drop and a 3/4 inch rise and in most cases the # 80232 ball mount will be correct, but this does not mean that it will be the correct ball mount height for towing your trailer. The height of your trailer coupler and the height of the top of the receiver opening on your RAV4, when parked on a fairly level surface with the trailer frame level, will be needed to determine the correct ball mount drop or rise that...

  • 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...

  • 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 # S64600 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Does a Trailer Hitch Extender Reduce the Gross Trailer Weight Capacity or Just the Tongue Weight
  • The use of a hitch extender reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. So if the trailer hitch is rated for 1,000 pounds tongue weight it would be reduced to just 500 pounds tongue weight capacity when using an extension. It doesn't reduce the gross trailer weight capacity, only the tongue weight. Extender # BX88264 has the additional restriction of flat towing only (towing a vehicle with all 4 wheels down) and cannot be used with trailers. Since the use of...

  • 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. Adapter # HE06 has...

  • 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...

  • Can Curt Dual Receiver Adapter # D-192 Be Used to Tow and Support a Cargo Carrier on 2011 Jeep
  • Use of any hitch adapter or extender, such as the Curt Dual 2-Inch Receiver Tube Adapter, part # D-192, will reduce your hitch capacity by 50 percent. This reduction in hitch weight capacity occurs as a result of the change in the geometry of how the weight load is applied to the hitch. In the case of your 2011 Jeep Wrangler all of the 2-inch hitch receivers we offer all have a 350-lb tongue weight rating; with this cut in half by use of an adapter/extender, you would have only 175-lb...

  • Ball Mount and Ball Recommendations for a 2010 Subaru Forester

The Super Extra Long Ball Mount # 80232 that you referenced would most likely not be necessary, unless you have the need for a very long ball mount. Whichever ball mount you choose you should always stay under the towing capacities of the lowest rated component in your towing setup and go with the lowest rated component as the overall towing capacity for your...

  • Can Rear Fascia Panel be Replaced After Installing Curt Trailer Hitch # 13424, 2011 Chevy Traverse
  • You will notice in the instructions that I have linked for Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13424, that it states that the panel in question may be reinstalled on some models. So I spoke with my contact at Curt to determine if the 2011 Chevy Traverse was a model that it could be reinstalled on. He stated that they did not have information on the 2011 but on the 2010 it can be reinstalled. Basically, if the rear fascia is the same on the 2011, then it will fit. But if it has been redesigned, it...

  • Swagman Towing Bike Rack S64600 Clearance

You could purchase an extended ball mount (see links below) or you could buy a hitch mounted bike rack and use our multi purpose ball mount to carry your bikes and allow towing of a trailer at the same time. Remember, do not exceed the tongue weight of your hitch or your towing vehicle (whichever is...

  • Downsizing Trailer Wheel and Tire Combination to Lower Personal Water Craft (PWC) Trailer Height
  • The 5.70-8 could be a viable replacement size for your PWC, but I also have another solution that may work to make loading and unloading easier. The benefits of downsizing your tire and wheels are mainly the height loading aspect. With your current setup you have an outer diameter of 20.5 and the down sized tire is 18.1 inches. You may also see some ride stability because the center of gravity will be lower so you may get less sway when towing. Some drawbacks of downsizing your tires...

  • Can a 48 Inch Long Combo Bar be Used to Make a Hitch Extender
  • Combo bar # 80948 is used in hitch fabrication and is not technically an extender. It has no hitch pin hole to secure to the receiver on the trailer hitch. The longest regular extender that we have for a 2 inch trailer hitch is # RP11004 at 18 inches long. If you used it with a super extra long ball mount, # 80232, then you would have a total of 34 inches of extension. Please note this will severely reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. The use of the extension alone...

  • Recommended Option for Safely Towing Tear Drop Trailer and Using Bike Rack
  • Your 2017 NuCamp T@G Outback tear-drop trailer is nice indeed, but it does not lend itself too well to use with an RV bike rack since the tongue area is already well-utilized for (and mostly covered by) cargo and storage structures. Were this not the case then the a-frame-mount Bike Bunk # CC-275 would do the trick. The adjustable Bike Bunk mounts to the a-frame and provides a 2-inch receiver for use with an RV-approved bike carrier like the Lets Go Aero BikeWing-2 2-Bike Rack # B01311....

  • Hitch Receiver Extension and Reducer for Towing a Trailer with a Truck Camper

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...

  • 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.

This should put the ball about flush with the back of the spare tire on a 2012 Toyota RAV4 based on installations we have done. Measure your specific vehicle to be certain. Boat trailers generally have a coupler at the end of a long pole tongue. And the shape of most boats combined with the pole tongue would allow you to easily make turns without any interference issues....
