Video Transcript for MaxxTow Ball Mounts MT70067 Review

Today were going to review part number MT70067. This is the Maxx Tow eight position adjustable ball mount for a two inch hitch. This adjustable ball mount will offer eight different positions to match the height of your application. Itll work good if youre towing trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. It has a channel style mounting system, which is easy to adjust. You can move the ball up or down along the channel.

Then you just secure the ball mount in place with the included pins and clips. This is made of a sturdy steel construction. It has a corrosion resistant black powder coat finish. This does fit on a two inch trailer hitch receiver. The gross towing weight capacity on this is 5,000 pounds.

The tongue weight capacity is 500 pounds. It does have a maximum drop of 10 inches. Basically Ill show you a quick measurement of the drop here. The drop would be measured from the top of your receiver here to the top of where the ball is mounted. If we go up you can see its going to be 10 inches maximum drop.

Now if you put it the other way and do the maximum rise you would again measure from this top of the shank to the top of where the ball mount would be. If we do that that would be maximum rise is 8 inches. Now you can adjust when it says eight positions adjustable. It has holes drilled here on the shank and each one is an inch and a half different from center to center. You can adjust it four positions down, like in a drop position.

If you do it in the rise you can adjust it four positions up. Thatll give you your eight different positions that you can adjust this ball mount for. The distance from the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole, this distance here, will be basically 12 inches. The ball hole dimension, right here, uses a hitch ball shank diameter of one inch and the length of this shank here is going to be 10 of an inch. I just want to show you briefly what you would do. You would have the clips on this side. If you just remove both clips and then pull out the pin that will allow this ball mount, this channel mount, to go up or down. In the drop position and if you turn this over and use it the rise position oops, actually use it this way, there you go. Thatll let you use it in multiple four different positions in the rise and four different positions in the drop. That should do it for review on part number MT70067.

This has been a really good hitch. Easy to use, strong, and very versatile. My Colorado p/u is factory lowered and a standard hitch configuration is so low that launching my boat is nearly impossible. (The tongue is low, making the stern of the boat high. So, the back of the boat doesn't get deep enough into the water.) Pulling the boat off of the bunks is nearly impossible. By raising the ball height, the rear of the trailer rotates downward, getting the stern of the boat more into the water. Even at shallow launch ramps, the boat can float itself from the trailer, and I don't have to pull it off of the bunks. For road trailering, I can lower the ball height to lower the trailer tongue and get a proper weight distribution. This hitch has really worked well for me. If you launch a boat, or recover mobile equipment onto a trailer, being able to securely lower the back of the trailer has a lot of advantages. 441588

Works well, I dont use it for very heavy loads but I like that not having to carry extra mounts for my different trailers.e-trailer is the best!! Had a blowout, needed a tire could not find one in any store, we were passing the area on a Sunday no less I was met at the side door with a tire.

Excellent fit on my Jeep with three and a half inch lift and 37" tires. I flip it over for storage and no drag when off-roading - doesn't hit the ground on steep dips, etc. I can now tow a trailer with my lifted Jeep and still keep the hitch on the vehicle when not in use. 114817

I searched long & hard for an adjustable trailer hitch for our Jayco pop-up. Finally found the MaxxTow & etrailer.com had the best price anywhere online. George at etrailer emailed me & put a rush on the order--unsolicited by me--which allowed us to take our vacation on schedule. We also used the hitch for the cheerleaders' float in our hometown parade; the Dad pulling the float had a new truck that was WAY too high for the trailer. The MaxxTow was perfect for this application as well. I'll definitely shop etrailer FIRST anytime I'm looking for trailer or RV products in the future. Thanks George & etrailer! 401560

I had just purchased a new trailer, and knew immediately that the tongue weight was incorrect. The e-trailer site had all the information I needed to measure the drop for my new trailer. Mine came in at 8 and three quarters. So, I opted for the 10 inch drop 5K GTW vs the 9 inch drop 6K GTW for half the price. The product that came was exactly as described and pictured. The weld joints were all clean and smooth and painted. This would be my second purchase from a trailer, and I'm quite pleased with all the selections offered and the quality of the products received. 256934

Product was just as it appeared on your website. At first, I ordered a similar product which turned out to be discontinued. Stacey A called, explained the situation, and helped me select a suitable replacement product and complete the reorder. The product was tracked and delivery was announced via email. The product was delivered in the time frame estimated and was in perfect condition. Stacey A sent a follow-up email checking to make sure all was satisfactory. This was my second purchase from etrailers and both have been great experiences. Thanks. 464155

Excellent service from etrailer. This product seems very sturdy. One should always adhere to load limitations.Given the rating of 500 lbs hitch and 5000 lbs. Gross tow, I have no doubt the product will deliver. When purchasing a hitch or drawbar.....the user should be aware that anything CAN be broken with enough force applied. That 5000 lbs limit should be given proper attention. Most trailers with 2 axles could overload this drawbar. Most full size pickups weigh more than 5000 lbs. A mid-sized sedan or crossover gets very close. 177650

This is the third time I've ordered from etrailer in about a month. Everything I got has been exactly what they said it would be and functioned as it should. Very good packaging and detailed instructions. Very good, fast and friendly service. Was notified by email when order was placed, when it shipped and a follow up after each order arrived to see if I was satisfied. P.S. I like the etrailer.com boxes. My neighbors don"t think they are adult diapers when they see them on my porch lol. Thanks again for the great service. Jim 394170

I have not installed the adjustable ball mount yet. It appears to be of good quality will do the job, which is an odd step up installation. The videos on the website made the selection process simple and gave me the confidence to order it without going to a trailer supply store and deal with the a salesman and finding they probably do not have this item anyway. The ordering was easy and the follow up by etrailer has been great. I have ordered in the past and continue to look forward to the next time I need something. 111896

This product is cleverly designed - it provides adjustments from 8" above to 10" below the ball of your hitch. I intend to use it to lower the hitch on my motorhome so that I can tow a tow dolly that runs optimum at 16" while my hitch is 24" above. My only concern is that the extension will be driven into the pavement and ruined when the motorhome goes through a dip at driveways etc. The product appears to be very well built although it is rated at only 5000 lbs. It looks to be built at least at 10,000 lbs level. 282843

The hitch works great with my high truck. I'm a little uncertain about the tounge rate rating. The hitch is rated to 5,000 pounds, which is more than enough but the tounge weight is only 500 lbs. if I'd researched this I might have bought a different hitch. My load will be around 4,300, 2 horse trailer loaded. I guess it depends on which formula I use to calculate tongue weight, but if I go with 15%, I'm overloaded; 10% I'm okay. It seems tongue rating should match the hitch rating. 231921

I ordered a trailer hitch, wiring harness and MaxxTow ball mount for my 2015 Ford Explorer. After viewing the rectangular wiring harness plug on my vehicle, I immediately called customer service who substituted the flat wiring harness plug for the round one ordered. The customer service associate substituted the correct wiring harness despite costing about $4.00 more. Excellent customer service and I received all parts ordered one day earlier than promised. 407554

I ordered this hitch to accommodate my smaller truck (Chevy S10 Crew Cab) for the Utility Trailer I finished building which now has leaf springs underneath for better ride/suspension & height. I ordered this hitch and added the 3 day shipping, AND, it arrived in 2 days! I am very pleased with this hitch that's matched with a 2" Ball, It works perfect for my truck/trailer and the adjustment options are perfect for what I need! 208975

Operates as advertised and expected. Also an excellent value. This saved me from going to a more expensive mount or needing special fabrication labor. Note: This is run this upside down on my 2002 LS Xtracab 4.3L with ZQ8 suspension. The mount does drag on my driveway and some intersections but not by much. I will adjust my height up a little for towing and would use this mount again for this application. 188547

everything looks good. i sure needed the 10 inch drop. will use it this week end. the way etrailer handled this was great. even down to the map of tracking the shipping. the order was only in house for about 30 minutes and i received a e-mail that it was ready to ship. that afternoon another e-mail that it had shipped. Very efficient. got it the day they said it would be here. 97321

I just need to pull a small trailer with motorcycle so didn't need a super heavy duty hitch. My biggest issue was the drop and the receiver on the motorhome sets very high. This unit should give me sufficient drop for the trailer to be level. Looks very high quality, certainly is heavy (about 30 lbs). Price was about 1/3 of some other hitches that offered this much drop (or raise if needed). 437783

etrailer's website has a wealth of information and product offerings. I called to get information on hitch configurations matching my particular motorhome year and model. eTrailer's Rep, Sal got the information quickly, so I ordered the items over the phone and the items arrive to my residence in very short order. I highly recommend eTrailer for your hitch and towing solutions. Stan H. 366176

Received product when expected and in great condition. Have not used the ball mount yet, but have no worries based on its heft and construction it will fit great. After changing tow vehicles my old ball mount did not have enough drop so I researched another fixed ball mount with a drop but ultimately decided on the adjustable mount to ensure I had future flexibility with whatever car I have. 168140

I ordered this to tow a vintage pop up that I had just purchased. The hitch was great because the pop up tongue and the receiver were different heights. Well fast forward a few months and my tow vehicle was totaled and get a different car. Since this is so adjustable it worked perfectly for my new tow vehicle! It is very durable and the pins stay in no matter how bumpy the road. 276398

E-Trailer, I am happy with the equipment I received. I must admit I am somewhat disappointed the I did not receive the two hitch pins that are in the photo.

The only thing keeping this from an Excellent is there wasn't a third cotter pin to attach to the car. Wish there was a note somewhere so I could have ordered at the same time.

My 2017 Tahoe was way high when hooked up to my small boat and lawn trailers. The 6" drop hitches at the auto suppy stores were not enough. I found etrailer.com and the problem was solved with an adjustable 10" drop-8' rise ball mount. The company was a pleasure to do business with... and more than the hitch... that is the purpose of this review. 470566

Very nice well-made heavy duty Ball Mount. We purchased this for an RV so we could pull a dolly with a car. It is really heavy duty.

Everything I expected it would be from pictures on website. When the hitch arrived UPS, the box was badly damaged from handling. Thankfully, all parts made it. The overall thickness of the hitch could be thicker. All I'm hauling is a boat/trailer, and a landscape trailer. Heavier applications may desire a more HD hitch. 470433

This hitch was sent to me very quickly. It arrived two days sooner then I was promised, great service. But more important to me was I had just ordered an almost identical hitch from another source for half the price of this one and it was not near the quality as this one. I guess you "get what you pay for". 319220

I recently purchased a new Tahoe 4x4 with a hitch receiver much higher than my old vehicle, so I needed a way to lower the ball mount. I ordered this item and it worked perfectly for my motorcycle trailer. I recently towed it with this item for over 500 miles round trip with not issues. 228679

This product was exactly what I was looking for. It provides all the drop and all the rise that one could ever need. The 10 inch drop is especially good when you have a 4X4 that sits up higher in the back and you are having to pull a smaller or lower height trailer. Great Product! 210939

I have a few different trailers and two different tow vehicles. I used to have different draw bars for each circumstance. Now with this, I only need to have one. I've used it three times and changed the height three times and it works great. Well worth the money. 175610

Heavy duty and adjustable, exactly what I needed as my new-to-me trailer will be changing its height when the new axle goes on. Plus, I can loan to friends who have various types of trailers. I like flexibility. 157821

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Ball Mounts
Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Can a Trailer Ride With the Tongue at an Upward or Downward Angle
  • Yes, a trailer that is nose up can cause big problems. A level trailer is ideal and worth working toward for safety. The good news is that you can get the trailer almost exactly level with switching ball mounts. This is where an adjustable ball mount like MaxxTow # 70067 comes in handy. If you are unable to achieve level even with an adjustable ball mount, it is better for the trailer to be slightly nose down so long as the tongue weight capacity of the hitch and vehicle is not exceeded....

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2013 Honda Pilot
  • On average, the coupler height of a trailer that is jacked up so that it is level is between 17-19 inches high. To determine the rise or drop your ballmount needs, jack the trailer so that the frame is level to the ground. Measure from the underside of the coupler down to the ground. Then measure from the top inside edge of the receiver opening to the ground. The difference between these two measurements is the rise or drop needed. If the receiver height of the Pilot is greater than...

An American style ball mount will work fine when we pair it with a 50mm Hitch Ball on a local trailer in Germany as long as you have a U.S. style trailer hitch on your vehicle with a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver. The look is different, but the function is the same. I'd suggest the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount, # MT70067. This will give you up to a 10 inch drop or a 8 inch rise to allow you to...

  • How Close Does Trailer Ball Height Need to be to the Height of the Trailer Coupler
  • The trick here is to get as close as possible. If you are talking about less than 2 inches or so, there is nothing to worry about. Having the trailer tongue a bit too high is preferable to it being too low. You may be a good candidate for an adjustable ball mount. I would recommend the MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount, part # MT70067 which adjusts between a 10 inch drop to a 8 inch rise. I am including a link to a demonstration video showing the features of the # MT70067 ballmount,...

  • Can a High/Low Adapter be Used to Tow Pintle Hook Trailer With Standard 2-Inch Hitch
  • Since the height of your pintle-equipped military trailer is so much greater than the height of the hitch on your Honda Pilot (possibly as much as 2 feet) I am not sure there is any way to keep the trailer level when hitched. We do not offer an adapter that can make up this substantial height difference. I suggest you check your Honda Pilot owners manual to confirm the vehicle tow rating. Tow ratings can vary by model year and based on the specific equipment set in your Pilot. You want...

  • 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Options Needed To Tow a Trailer
  • On your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, if you do not already have a 4-flat trailer plug installed, then you will need to install wiring harness to allow you to use the lights on the Lets Go Aero Trailer, # TLK864. The wiring harness that I recommend is the Tekonsha 4-Pole Flat Connector, # 118384. This harness is designed to plug in to the existing wiring of your Jeep with no cutting or splicing. The harness will allow you to run the trailer lights off your vehicle's lights. Next, you...

  • Best Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness Option for a 2016 Mazda CX-9
  • For your 2016 Mazda CX-9 I recommend installing the Tekonsha Vehicle Wiring Harness Kit with 4 Pole Trailer Connector # 119147KIT. Tekonsha is a popular and reliable brand. Since you don't have a trailer hitch receiver you most likely do not have a tow package. However, vehicles with a factory tow package would use the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118278. For a quality and cost effective trailer hitch receiver I would go with the Draw-Tite - Class...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2014 Audi Q5 with Factory Trailer Hitch
  • I prefer the S8 myself. On your 2014 Audi Q5 it is likely going to come with a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. This means that it is a Class III or IV trailer hitch and you can use any ball mount you want. You will want one that has the proper rise or drop needed to tow the trailer level. I have included a link to our help article that shows how to measure to get a ball mount with the right rise or drop. I have also included a link to our fixed ball mount main page. Another option is...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount Similar To Master Lock EZ
  • The MasterLock 2841AT has been discontinued. For a similar ball mount, you may be interested in the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop, 6-1/4" Rise - 5,000 lb, # MT70068, the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 8" Rise - 5,000 lbs, # MT70067, or the Reese Adjustable Ball Mount - 5,000 lb which includes the pin and clip, # RP21141.

  • There are a few factors that you will need to consider when choosing a trailer hitch for your 1999 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4. First, you will need to know the weight of the trailer or trailers that you intend to pull and the towing capacity of your truck.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder and Boat Trailer
  • There are a few things to consider when choosing a ball mount. First you need to know the hitch capacity, which should be on a sticker on the hitch, the receiver size, and a couple of measurements to get the correct rise or drop ball mount to tow the trailer level. I have included some links that will help. Ball mount # 2793 will fit 2 inch hitch receivers and has a max drop of 8 inches. It is rated for 500 pounds tongue weight and 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight. If these figures...

  • How to Determine the Correct Rise Ball Mount that will Clear the Spare Tire on a 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • In order to choose the ball mount that will clear the spare tire and have enough rise or drop for your 2005 Jeep Liberty, you will need to take a few measurements. These measurements can be different on each vehicle depending on the brand of trailer hitch that you have installed and the size of the spare tire on your Jeep. To determine the length that you will need to clear the spare tire, you will want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch to the furthest...

  • Recommended Hitch Receiver and Ball Mount for John Deere X590 to Tow Log Splitter
  • For your John Deere x590, I recommend the Reese Towpower 3-Way ATV Hitch w/ Ball Mount Adapter - 2,000 lbs # RP7065100. This will give you a 2 inch receiver that will allow you to use a ball mount like # C45112 in the rise position to get you at the right height for your hitch ball and coupler to meet. This will allow your current jack to work and save your back. I've attached an article to assist with finding the correct ball mount for your trailer. Then you will just need the matching...

  • Ball Mount Recommendations for a 2012 Ford Expedition Towing a Pontoon Boat or Seadoo Trailer
  • You have a couple of options. First, you can buy two ball mounts, one with the correct rise for the pontoon boat and one for the Seadoo trailer. Or, you can get one ball mount that use a 2-1/2 inch rise, # AMSC2HD, and that would be fine for both trailers. If you wanted to go with separate ball mounts, for a 3 inch, use # 40331. You do not have to use that extra sway control bracket welded to it. Another option is to use an adjustable ball mount like # MT70067. It has a max rise of...

  • Availability of 1-7/8 Inch Trailer Ball For EZ Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount Part # AM3296
  • I have spoken with one of my contacts with Andersen Manufacturing who tells me that a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball is not available for the EZ Hitch Adjustable Steel Ball Mount. I understand that they currently have no plans to offer one. Your best bet would be to go with the EZ Hitch you were looking at, part # AM3296. For your smaller trailer that uses the 1-7/8 inch ball, assuming that you are needing a maximum of an 10 inch drop I would suggest an adjustable ball mount like part # MT70067...

  • Coupler Height of Roadmaster Tow Dolly # RM-2000-1
  • On Roadmaster tow dolly # RM-2000-1 the ball height is 18 inches. I have included a picture showing this for you.

Ball mount # MT70067 for example is rated for 5,000 pounds and offers up to 8 inches of rise of 10 inches of drop. For a 2 inch ball that will fit the ball mount I recommend # 63845 which is a basic chrome ball.

  • Rise or Drop of Ball Mount Needed for Rental Trailer
  • Your trailer rental place should be able to provide you with the coupler height of their equipment. With that information, you should be able to determine the rise or drop you need, as shown in the FAQ article I have linked you to. The average height is typically around 17 inches, and I believe your receiver height is approximately 14 inches, which would mean that you will need a ball mount with a 3-4 inch rise. An adjustable ballmount like part # MT70067 might be a good choice for you....

  • Recommended Hitch Ball Mount And Hitch Balls For 2015 Ford F-150 XLT
  • When you are towing a trailer you want the trailer to be as level as possible behind your F-150. I have attached a helpful article that explains how you can measure to find the best ball mount. You just need a tape measure to do this. Park the truck on level ground and then measure form the ground to the top of the receiver opening. Then measure the distance from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. If the hitch height is greater you will need a ball mount with a drop. If...

  • Does a 2 inch Trailer Ball fit the MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount # MT70067
  • The thickness of the tongue on the MaxxTow Adjustable Height Ball Mount # MT70067 is 3/4 of an inch, and it works with trailer balls that have a 1 inch diameter shank. The interchangeable Convert-A-Ball Trailer Ball Set # 900b, that is recommended for use with this adjustable ball mount, has a ball with a shank 2-1/4 inches long and 1 diameter. So it is possible that a trailer ball with a 2 inch long shank may work for you depending on the thickness of the nut and lock washer used...

  • Easy Way to Have Different Hitch Ball Sizes with the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount MT70067
  • I have a better solution for you. Instead of getting 3 different ball platforms for the part # MT70067 so that you can have different hitch ball sizes you would want the part # 900B instead to go along with the ball mount. This hitch ball allows you to easily interchange between the 3 different hitch ball sizes. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Rise or Drop of Ball Mount Needed for 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • There is no specific 'best' rise or length of ball mount for a given vehicle. Since the hitch and coupler height of every vehicle and every trailer is different, you'll need to take some measurements. To determine the rise/drop of ball mount needed, you'd want to measure the distance from the inside top of the hitch receiver tube to the ground. Then with the trailer level, measure the distance from the underside of the trailer coupler to the ground. The difference between the measurements...

  • Will SoftRide Anti-Rattle # SR15219 Work With MaxxTow Adjustable Ball Mount # MT70067
  • It is not recommended to deviate from the original manufacturer components because the combination has not been tested together for fit, compatibility and safety. With that being said, I went to the warehouse and measured the holes of the MaxxTow # MT70067 channel portion and the diameter is 11/16 of an inch and the diameter of the pin that comes in the package is a 1/2 inch. The SoftRide Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin # SR25219 has a pin diameter of 5/8 inch, which is 1/16th inch smaller...
