Video Transcript for Reese Ball Mounts RP45294 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Reese Titan forged pintle hook mounting plate for a 2-1/2" trailer hitch, part number RP45294. This is a pretty hefty piece of work here, weighing in at 19 lbs. It has a black powder-coat finish to resist rust and corrosion. It can be used in either the drop or the rise position. As we said, it is intended for 2-1/2" trailer hitches. The way that would work is, you'd put that in your receiver like this.

You'd match up the holes, and then you would get your pin and clip. This pin and clip does not come with this item; however, it is available here at etrailer.com, part number PC3. You would just slide that right in there, clip that off, and you're all set. And as you can see, this is in the rise position. For some additional security when using this, we also carry a wide range of hitch locks that you can use.

Taking a look at some of the specs and dimensions, this item has a gross towing weight capacity of 18,000 lbs., and a tongue weight capacity of 2,000 lbs. The length of the shank from the center of the part number here to the face of the plate is 8-1/2". The size of the mounting plate is 5" x 7-1/4". The mounting holes here from center to center is 3-3/8" from left to right, and up to down is 1-3/4". That should just about do it for our Reese Titan forged pintle hook mounting plate for 2-1/2" trailer hitches, part number RP45294..

It is a little longer than I thought it would be! heavy duty, tight fit, does not rattle going over bumps 142678


the hitch is still as solid as the day it was installed, the paint is holding up well, still a tight fit, does not rattle, I have purchased several items from Etrailer this year, shipping is fast and customer service is excellent.

E Trailer's customer service on this order was outstanding. I ordered a pintle hitch mount on 9/20. I was then quickly notified that they did not have the specific product in stock, but they offered a comparable product that could ship out immediately. Product showed up quickly as advertised, and within the specification that is required. I would highly recommend working with them, as their customer service and attentiveness to detail was top notch. It is rare to find people who genuinely care that much about their customer in today's age. I look forward to a long relationship with an outstanding company. 301516

Rugged Perfect fit for my 2011 Silverado 2500HD. The new truck has a heavier duty receiver with the 2 1/2 inch opening. With the 18,000 lb rating of this pintle hook mount, I can safely (and legally) tow a 5 ton trailer (over 12,000 GVW). This is the most rugged and solid mount I've ever seen. I found it quite convenient that the holes have the hexagon shape on the back side. The nuts for the pintle hook fit perfectly, making it easy to install the bolts with just one wrench. Very happy. 4337

I've bought 5 of these so far for all the new model chevy/gmc trucks. I hate using the reducers gm provides with the hitch as they are not as tight of a fit as i would like, plus my guys end up losing them when we remove/reinstall the hitch insert. So for me using the 2.5inch insert is a safety issue. Product is built tough and i'm happy to buy more in the coming years. Shipping was fast and customer service is top notch. 218581

The ball/pintle mounting plate worked very well. I was surprised that it stuck out past the bumper so far on my 2008 Silverado 2500HD, but it was only about 4-5 inchest past where my ball usually sits with other hitches. I suppose it will work well as strong as it is to take care of anyone who choses to park to close to me in parking lots! :-) 100454

Appears to be good quality. I assembled it, mounted it, and have not been able to tow with it yet. I had a very good experience with the company. They were able to help me with special delivery instructions and kept me posted on the status of the shipping. The shipping was expeditious! Thank you all so much! 137574

Hitch was shipped in a timely manner. It was everything I expected. This is one heavy duty hitch. It fits my 2-1/2" receiver perfectly.I have purchased from etrailer in the past and I will purchase from etrailer in the future. Satisfied customer. 147744

by: Todd M.03/17/2015

This mounting plate is very heavy duty, and a tight fit on a 2.5" receiver - no rattling. it is made for 5/8" bolts, not the 1/2" bolts the average 6 ton pintle hitch uses, some washers may be needed for smaller pintle hitches. 178882

After one year the hitch is performing well, it was very tight to install new, it is easier now that some of the paint has worn. it is a very sturdy hitch, we have bent the plate on welded models but not these! 320188

The item description was lacking, it only tells you how tall the plate is, not how far the drop is. It is a very beefy product. I'm very pleased with it so far. 27949
