Video Transcript for etrailer Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - EBMK25318 Review

Today were going to review part number EBMK25318, this is the Etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2 -inch hitches. This ball mount kit will work on the class 5 2 -inch trailer hitch receivers. A kit will include a ball mount, a 2 5/16 hitch ball and the Etrailer.com ball mount bag to carry it all in.First Im going to start with the ball mount. As you can see, it is a size 2 -inch to fit in the class 5 receivers; very heavy, very solid. Now it does come with Ill show you the dimensions on it the drop is a 3-inch drop so the measurement for a drop will be from here to here. So if we basically put a tape measure on that will give you a 3-inch drop and has a 1 -inch rise.

So if we flip it over and its installed that way into your hitch; itd be from here to here. So basically if we measure from here up would be 1 -inch rise. This ball mount part number is RP45322. It does have a gross towing weight capacity of 18,000 pounds and has a tongue weight capacity of 2,000 pounds.The next part we have here is part number 63840 which is the 2 5/16 trailer hitch ball. It does come with the nut and the washer for installation onto the ball mount.

The nut size 1 7/8 inches. And Ill give you a few dimensions on this hitch ball. The shank which is this part here, the diameter will be 1 inches. Now the shank length which is here to here will be 3 inches. And this hitch ball does have a gross towing weight capacity of 20,000 pounds.And the last item we have on this kit is the Etrailer.com Ball Mount Bag part number ETBMB.

This ball mount bag works great not only for carrying your ball mounts but for also all your other towing equipments such as tie down straps, pins, clips, locks. A strong handle makes it easy to carry and the large zipper opening which extends the whole length of the bag makes it easy to operate. And when you have a large long ball mount like this, it makes it easy to put in to the bag. This will conveniently store the ball mounts or drawbars when not in use and it also works great for all the trailer equipment like tie down straps, etc. This bag is made of a durable nylon construction which will provide many years of use.

And again we mentioned the no hassle zipper closure the whole length of the bag, the handle for transportation and then Im just going to give you a few dimensions on the bag. The overall length is 16 inches. The overall height is 5 inches and the overall width is 4 inches. And that should do it for our review of part number EBMK25318.

I am a frequent etrailer customer, the variety and availability of quality components and excellent service is what keeps me coming back. When trailering I strive to be as safe as possible, which is why I chose this heavy duty ball mount to tow my 10,000# car hauler trailer. With this very robust piece, I can be assured that the connection between my truck and trailer is secure. 333421

Just received the product today. The box it arrived in was extremely damaged but all of the parts appeared to be in it. 611840

This was our company's first ETRAILER order. My original order was for a Blu Ox receiver reducer. The plan was to continue using our current 2" drawbars with the 2 1/2" receiver on the "new" (2008) truck. Upon installation it was very apparent that there was way to much side play for safe towing of heavy loads on gravel roads. ETRAILER customer service was contacted for assistance. Holly was extremely knowledgeable regarding the product line and also had "hands on" experience with trailer towing. She not only guided me to the best resolution to my issue; but, also expedited shipment of the replacement drawbar. She further emailed a return shipping label for the reducer that was easy to print, along with straight forward and easy to understand instructions for the return. The UPS driver even commented about the label being the correct size as opposed to many undersized labels that he has received. Our company will now use ETRAILER as our "go to" vendor for trailer repair and towing supplies. As for the drawbar, the construction is one piece forged steel with an I-beam design. The ball appears to be high quality. I have complete confidence that the drawbar and ball kit will perform as needed when we are towing equipment or logs on gravel and dirt roads; as well as, off-road. 566214


Comments
For 12 months we have subjected the ETRAILER drawbar ball mount through on and off road tests pulling our 7ton GVW equipment trailer. Other than normal signs of weathering it is just like the day it arrived. If we have a need, we will purchase this product again!

I purchased this 2.5" insert to eliminate the adaptor spacer for my 2" insert on my new truck and eliminate rattle. However, this one has more play that the 2" insert with its adaptor. Time will tell as I pull my trailer more but we will have to wait and see. 242253

Arrived as promised. My Eagle boat trailer instructions state that the centerline of the ball should be at 18-20" for best effect. You should know that with the 3 inch drop, the centerline of the ball is exactly correct for my 2014 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD crew cab. As an aside you should know that Masterlock receiver lock 1469 DAT does NOT work on the 2014 Silverado 2500 HD 2.5 inch receiver. IT IS TOO SHORT. Even though it is advertised by the manufacturer as "extended reach," the advertising is false in implying that it will work on a 2.5" Chevy receiver. 128675

Purchased this Ball Mount Kit for 2013 Super Duty that is equipped with a factory 2½" Class V receiver. The ball mount fits great with minimal slop. The bag which comes with the kit is very handy to either store the ball mount and/or retractable Ratchet Straps and stores perfectly under the rear seat. Great product/kit and am pleased with this purchase!! 125365

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Ball Mounts

  • What Comes with the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2-1/2 inch Hitches
    The difference between what comes with the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit # EBMK25318 and the Reese Titan Ball Mount # RP45322 is that the # EBMK25318 comes with a # RP45322 plus a hitch ball # 63840 and ball mount bag # ETBMB. So basically if all you wanted was a ball mount you would want the # RP45322, but if you wanted that plus a hitch ball and a ball mount bag you would want to get a # ETBMB25318. The ball mount has a distance of 10 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to...

  • Difference Between 2-1/2 inch Hitch and 2-5/16 inch Hitch Ball
    I think you may have a couple things confused but that's pretty easy to do so I don't blame you. A 2-1/2 inch hitch is a hitch with a square opening that measures 2-1/2 inch by 2-1/2 inch like what you see in the picture I attached. 2-5/16 inch refers to the diameter of a hitch ball that installs in a ball mount which then installs in the hitch. The part # EBMK25318 is a ball mount that installs in a 2-1/2 inch hitch and comes with a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. Based on what you mentioned...

  • Fit of Reese Titan 2½ Inch Ball Mount on OEM Class V Receiver of 2013 Ford Super Duty
    Originally, because the radius at the inside corners of the Ford OEM hitches were more rounded than usual, getting aftermarket hitch accessories that would fit was a problem. Ballmounts could be altered to fit by sanding off the powder coat at the corners. In the meanwhile, Reese has altered the design of the ball mount slightly by rounding the shank edges so that it will be compatible with the Ford OEM 2-1/2 inch receivers. I have confirmed this with Reese. The # RP45322 ballmount...

  • Can a 2 Inch Ball be Included in a Ball Mount Kit Instead of a 2-5/16 Inch Ball
    What you can do is get the parts individually since we can't swap the balls out in a kit. The ball mount is # RP45322 and the bag is # ETBMB. For a 2 inch ball that will fit use # A-90. But keep in mind that the ball is rated for 10,000 pounds which is less than the ball mount which is rated for 18,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 2,000 pounds tongue weight.

  • Trailer Hitch for 2012 Ram 3500 that Replaces the Factory Installed Trailer Hitch
    For your 2012 Ram 3500 with factory trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Class V hitch # DT45509. The factory hitch will need to be removed so this hitch can be installed. Once installed the receiver will be right up under the bumper in the same location as the stock hitch was. All of the other options require mounting a hitch so that the receiver will be below the factory receiver and you will lose the ground clearance. I also recommend etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2-1/2" Hitches...

  • Does Factory Hitch and Cross Member Get Removed to Install Draw-Tite Hitch on a 2004 Dodge Ram 3500
    To install Draw-Tite trailer hitch # DT45509 on your 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 you would remove the factory hitch and the bumper structure it is attached to. This is mentioned in the instructions which I have linked for you. The new hitch will take the place of that bumper structure that the factory hitch is welded to. The recommended ball mount kit for this hitch is # EBMK25318. It comes with a ball mount with a 1-1/2 inch rise or 3 inch drop, a 2-5/16 inch ball, and a storage bag.

  • Class V Trailer Hitch that Will Fit a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with a Factory Installed Trailer Hitch
    You will not be able to remove the factory hitch on your 2007 Dodge Ram because it is welded and integrated into the bumper cross member which it welded to the truck frame. You would need to use a hitch that fits around the factory hitch. For a Class V hitch, you can use Curt # C15809. This hitch will also give you a 2-1/2 inch receiver and a capacity of 2,700 pounds tongue weight and 20,000 pounds gross trailer weight.

    To determine the receiver size you have, I have included a link to an FAQ that will help. The Reese 2-1/2 inch Titan ball mounts like # RP45323 or the one found in # EBMK25318, tend not to fit the factory 2-1/2 inch receivers on Ford Super Duty trucks. You will need to use one of the Convert-A-Ball ball mounts. We have # AMSCV-6 with a 6 inch drop or 4-3/4 inch rise. We also have # AMSCV-4 with a 4 inch drop or 2-3/4 inch rise. And then we have # AMSCV-2 with a 2 inch drop or 3/4...

  • Best Trailer Hitch that Will Fit Under Factory Hitch on a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500
    The issue with the factory hitch on a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 is that the hitch is actually welded to a sort of u-shaped support piece of steel. So because of this design the factory hitch cannot be removed. You will need a version that fits beneath the factory hitch such as # C15809. I have linked a video to the right showing how this hitch installs. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK25318.

  • Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 with OEM Trailer Hitch
    Curt trailer hitch # C15800 is designed to fit cab and chassis models. Cab and chassis models have a more narrow frame width compared to regular pickups. If you do not have a cab and chassis model this hitch will not fit. For a regular pickup version of the 2011 Ram 2500 with the OEM hitch you can install Curt hitch # C15809. It will fit beneath the factory hitch. I have included links to the instructions and an installation video for you to view. I also recommend etrailer ball mount...

The Curt hitch will fit beneath the factory hitch and provide you with a 2-1/2 inch receiver. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

  • Does the Factory Need to be Removed to Install the Curt Hitch part # C15810
    Yes, the factory hitch on your 2013 Ford Super Duty truck will need to be removed to install the Curt Trailer hitch part # C15810. If you need trailer wiring you would want the Draw Tite wiring harness part # 18252. For a ball mount and hitch ball you would want the etrailer.com Ball Mount kit part # EBMK25318. You could use the Titan Hitch Box Extension # RP45018 with this hitch as well.

According to my Curt representative, the drop of the # C15845 hitch is right at 6 inches between the top of the receiver tube and the bottom of the truck frame.
