Video Transcript for B and W Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - BWBMHD30012 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number BWBMHD30012. This is the B&W Heavy-Duty Ball Mount with a 3 inch rise or a 4 inch drop, it's rated at 16,000 pounds. It's ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank will slide into your vehicle's hitch receiver and the ball platform is going to provide a good mounting point for your hitch ball which is sold separately. This is made from a sturdy steel construction. You can see here at the rear that we have a solid shank, there's hollow shank or cut out back here. This is a solid sturdy steel piece. It is corrosion resistant and it's coated in a high gloss black powder coated finish. Now both the drop and the rise position are available to ensure level towing and a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock is require and sold separately.

You can refer to the Ball Mount's product page and look underneath the related products on the right hand side of your screen to view this . to view this item. This ball mount is made in the USA and is designed to fit a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. It has a gross towing weight of 16,000 pounds with a max towing weight of 16,000. Now I'm going to measure from the center of our hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole and we're going to get a measurement of 9 and 5/8 of an inch. Now this ball mount provides a rise of 3 inches and a drop of 4 inches. We'll go ahead and show that.

The drop is measured from the inside top edge of the receiver tube, it's also equivalent to the hut of the shank to the top of the ball platform. I'll place the ruler on here and if you can picture an imaginary line coming off the top of the shank, it's going to hit at about the 4 inch mark, giving us the 4 inch drop. Now we rotate this to the rise position and we'll take that same measurement from the shank to the top of the ball platform and we're going to get a rise of about 3 inches. Our shank from the end to the top edge has a measurement of 6 inches. This ball mount does have an inch and a quarter ball hole diameter. In selecting your ball accessories you want to make sure that it doesn't exceed that measurement and again, this has a gross towing weight of 16,000 pounds.

I'll go ahead and slide it into the receiver hitch just to show you how to install. All you need to do is slide the shank of your ball mount into the opening of the hitch, line up your pin holes and then insert your pin and clip. Just like that, you're all loaded up and you're set to go. Now to flip it over to the rise position, you'd remove the pin and clip, flip it over and reinsert it and install it just the way I showed you in the drop position. That will compete today's review of part number BWBMHD30012. The B&W Heavy-Duty Ball Mount with a 3 inch rise or a 4 inch drop. .

Ball mount is awesome and super high quality and heavy duty over and above what I will need to tow my 7000 pound car trailer but I like it that way! Great job to everyone involved. My hat is off to the fabricators, made in USA Mount arrived without a nick, perfect weld marks and flawless show quality paint job. I may not even use it, it is that nice. Maybe put it in a display case and start a collection. Fast shipping, 2 days

This is an incredibly beefy hitch. The draw bar is solid, not tubular, which inspires confidence, and I'm sure has something to do with its significant weight rating.

Review from a similar HD Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This ball mount is exactly what I was looking for. It is far superior to other steel ball mounts that I own. SIGNIFICANTLY a much heavier unit which is what I was looking to purchase.

  • 2 Inch Hitch Ball Recommendation for B&W 16K Heavy-Duty Ball Mount
    The B&W ball mount # BWBMHD30012 requires a ball with a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank. Ball # BWTS10051 does indeed have a 1-1/4 inch shank so it can be inserted in the ball mount. However it was designed as a replacement for a pintle/ball combo hitch and would only be rated for 10,000 pounds in that application. it also hasn't been tested in a regular ball mount. For a regular hitch ball I recommend # A-90. It is rated for 10,000 pounds also. The selection of 2 inch diameter balls with 1-1/4...

    We have really great trailer hitch options for your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country like the etrailer # e98854 which is our best fitting and highest capacity option for your vehicle but B and W only makes hitches for larger trucks at this time and they do not have an option for your vehicle.

  • Recommended Ball Mount Height for Ford F-150
    In order to find the correct rise/drop in a ball mount you'll need to measure the distance from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver on the truck and then subtract the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler while level. The difference will be the rise/drop you need to look for in a ball mount. If you want to take rear end sag into the equation you can do so as well but be careful not to overestimate this.

  • Recommended Custom Fit Class V Trailer Hitch Receiver For 1984 GMC K3500 Pickup
    As long as your 1984 GMC K3500 Pickup has an 8' bed I recommend the B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V # BWHDRH25198 if your truck has the Deepdrop bumper, or B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V # BWHDRH25122 if your truck has the standard or step bumper.
