Video Transcript for B and W Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - BWHB94050 Review

Today we're going to review part number BWHB94050, this is the BMW 2 5/16 hitch ball. This is a long shank design, has a nice chrome finish with a 16,000 pound weight capacity. This chrome plated hitch ball will provide a connection point for your trailer's coupler. The threads on the shank are a fine thread, which is 12 threads per inch, helps provide a tight, strong grip. The chrome plated finish helps as a chrome plated steel finish, which will help resist corrosion. It does include the lock washer and the 1 7/8 inch size nut.

As you can see, 1 7/8 inch wrench is needed to tighten this down. The ball diameter itself is 2 5/16. The shank dimensions, let me show you the measurement on that. The length of the shank, from right here to the very bottom of the mount is 2 1/2 inches. The diameter of the shank is 1 1/4, and again the weight capacity, which is stamped on the very top of this ball, is 16,000 pounds. Basically when you go to install this, you just put this onto your ball mount, put your washer on and then go ahead and tighten down your nut, using a 1 7/8 inch size wrench.

That should do it for the review on part BWHB94050, the BMW 2 5/16 hitch ball with the long shank and a 16,000 pound weight capacity. .

I wanted to purchase a ball and mount for hauling up to 14000# and wanted them made in the US. Etrailer had exactly what I wanted, communication was great and shipping was fast. I've used the Convert-a-Ball cushioned mount before on a smaller trailer, but I couldn't believe how great it worked with a heavier trailer. I'm really happy with my purchase. Thanks. 199148

I used a vice grip and pipe wrench to screw the nut on and it was quick and easy. Heavy duty and nice quality. 505363



- BWHB94050

The B&W 2 5/16" ball is of a high quality build, just what I would expect. My only concern is that the base of the ball has no flat grab sides for a wrench to hold it still while the nut is being tightened. Once I got it as tight as I could, both the nut, shank and ball rotated as one. I did not want to use a pipe wrench to hold the base of the ball and gouge tool marks into the metal and finish. Something with this much weight rating, I think, should be able to be tightened down to a recommended torque spec, which was absent from the mounting instructions. I tightened it as much as I could and put a torque stripe along the mount, nut and threads... So far, it has not moved. Other than that, I think its great. 525449


Comments

Our installers typically wrap the trailer ball with a rag or towel so that they can get a good grip on the ball but not damage the finish.

Nice product. Wrench flats would be handy but I don't plan on removing it. A friend with a big truck repair shop is handy. Not everybody has a torque wrench that will do 415 ft lbs. 555706

Rachel B was awesome to deal with. I ordered this hitch ball and received it quickly through UPS. When I tried to install it the threads were burred that caused the nut to seize and not fully tighten. I called eTrailer and talked to Rachel B who promptly addressed the issue and sent me out a new ball which works flawlessly. The ball is of very high quality and very well made. Worth every penny. It's rated for 16,000 pounds versus China made Reese Tow Ready balls are only rated 10,000??? I also purchased this ball because it's made in the USA!!!! Will purchase again soon from eTrailer! 345921

There is no method of securing the ball while tightening the nut (i.e. no flat spots on the base). I am unable to tighten the nut to have at least one thread show, let alone to the proper torque. I will probably have to mangle the ball just trying to remove it so that it can be replaced (in a hurry) with a suitable ball before this weekend. 239212

Ask the Experts about this B and W Hitch Ball

Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • Recommended Class V Hitch for 2006 GMC Sierra for Towing 10,800 lb Boat
  • I'd recommend upgrading that hitch, ASAP. If the hitch fails while you're towing, causing an accident, your insurance company would be well within their rights to deny you coverage which would leave you wide open to all kinds of legal liability. Not a pretty situation. Usually, Class V hitches do indeed have a 2-1/2 inch receiver tube. However, companies like Curt Manufacturing, Draw-Tite and B&W have developed Class V hitches with a 2 inch receiver tube that are strong enough to be...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 1999 Ford Super Duty with Lift and 10,000lbs Camper
  • I can help you get set up with all the right equipment for towing a travel trailer with your 1999 Ford Super Duty. A weight distribution system is recommended if the gross vehicle weight (GVW) of the trailer is more than 50 percent of the GVW of your vehicle. A weight distribution system will distribute some of the tongue weight to the front axle of the tow vehicle. This will help with sag and allow your setup to brake and handle better.

  • I noticed you were looking at the Curt Hitch # 13241, this American made hitch is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Nissan Frontier and will work great for your camper's towing needs. For the 7-pin harness, I recommend is the # 118266, I've linked an installation video to help you install this on your Frontier.

  • Recommended 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball for Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45340
  • The Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount for 2 Inch Hitches # C45340 referenced in your question has a ball hole diameter of 1-1/4 inches. You will just need to make sure that the hitch ball you choose will fit this opening. For example, the B&W 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball # BWHB94050 has a shank diameter of 1-1/4 inches, so it will work well with the Curt Ball Mount. The shank length on this hitch ball is 2-1/2 inches, which is also compatible with the platform thickness on the Curt Ball Mount....

  • Weight Distribution with Sway Control System Recommendation for Trailer with 1,500 lb Tongue Weight
  • If your tongue weight is 1,500 lbs you'll want the Strait Line system # RP66075 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 lbs. Ideally you get your tongue weight to fall as close to the middle of the range of the system. The # RP66075 would work great for 1,500 lb of tongue weight. If you went with a system that had 1,500 lbs as the top of the range you'd be at the max and the system wouldn't be as effective. If you have a 2 inch hitch you'll then need the shank part # RP54998....

  • The B&W Heavy-Duty Ball Mount # BWBMHD30010 requires that the hitch ball have a shank diameter of 1-1/4-inches. The 2-inch Curt hitch ball # A-90 has this size shank and will work fine. For a 2-5/16-inch hitch ball you can use # BWHB94050.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited And Pop Up Camper
  • On your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, you do not need to use a weight distribution system for this application, but you will appreciate using one. The sway control is the biggest benefit. The best system for sway control and what I recommend for this application is the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 10,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # RP66082.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System that Prevents Sway for 3,500 Pound Trailer
  • When choosing the best weight distribution system for your setup, the most important factor to consider is your total tongue weight. This number will include both the loaded tongue weight of your trailer (everything loaded as if ready to go on a trip) and any added weight coming from behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. You will want the total tongue weight to fall somewhere around the middle of the weight capacity range of the weight distribution system you choose. Typically the...

  • Recommendation for Helping Control Sway on a Enclosed Trailer
  • The ProSeries friction sway bar # 83660 it will definitely help but won't eliminate it. This will be the most economical route, but if you wanted to ensure the enclosed trailer will be completely secure I recommend a full weight distribution system with integrated sway control. We offer a variety of systems that use different types of sway control. I really like the Reese Stait-Line Series like # RP66086, because of its 200-600 lbs. tongue weight capacity and 10,000 lbs. gross towing...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 1996 Ford F-150 to Tow Limos on a Trailer
  • For a 1996 Ford F-150 with a standard or step bumper the most popular hitch option is # C15300. It is considered a Class V hitch but has the more common 2 inch receiver. It is rated for 2,400 pounds of tongue weight and 16,000 pounds gross trailer weight (17,000 when used with weight distribution). This likely exceeds the capacity of the truck but check the owners manual for the trucks capacity and, if lower, go by the lower rating. Since you will be doing some towing I recommend etrailer...

When picking out a weight distribution you want to do it based on the loaded tongue weight, which also includes the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle.
