Heavy-duty, sturdy steel ball mount with hollow shank measures 13-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole. Powder coat finish is corrosion resistant.


I’m pleased with the product and how prompt the delivery was. However the packaging was insufficient and the packaging was torn open all over. Scuffing of the finish is a result and of little consequence due to the intended use. It’s a stinger w/ball for motorhome. May I suggest better packaging in the future


I like the extra long length. No one else make a hitch this long.


Slightly longer, so you can open your tailgate with a cargo trailer attached. Trailers with a tongue jack that is forward are problematic for tailgates...


I didn’t receive the ball mount. Only thing in the box was anti rattle device


This is really nice. Beveled edges so it slips into receiver hitch so sweet. Beautiful welds heavy weight mount for my weigh safe ball. I bought a 10,000 lbs hitch and I wanted a draw bar with the same type rating. Now the only thing limiting my trailer capacity is my truck's ability to tow, not the hitch, bar or ball.


The products themselves I’m sure will do the job. I’m very disappointed in how they arrived. Poorly packaged, one piece of paper wrap did nothing. There was a hole in the box from the hitch not being wrapped up. There are chips in the powder coat.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. I recommend touching up the affected areas with a rust resistant paint such as Rustoleum.


I purchased a Ranch Hand rear bumper for my 2500HD but wanted to retain the use of a receiver hitch. The ball mount would need to extend 8" from the pin hole to even reach the edge of the bumper. This BM29 ball mount works out perfect. The welds look great and the finish is just fine. The only complaint I have is they gained a little length by moving the pin hole a little closer to the end shortening the insertion amount slightly. Not a big deal, it is just noticable next to the other mounts I have at the house.


Perfect size for a 2004 Jeep Liberty with spare wheel on back. Very nice quality. I can now mount my trailer hassle free.


Just bought a set of front steps for my boat, and needed some extra length on the ball mount.
This mount fits the bill at 13 1/4 long


Needed to extend my hitch due to tailgate needing to be open. E-Trailer had this one on hand for a very decent price. Easy order, and fast shipping. Thank YOu.


BM20 Long Drawbar. Perfect for my 2005 Jeep Liberty. I no longer have to remove the spare to tow. Solved what was a major pain!


Great for chassis cab trucks with long boxes.


Just what I needed to tow my boat

Richard J.




Gives me the extra 6" extension I need so that the rear liftgate on my van can open without hitting the trailer jack, or the spare tire which I carry on the trailer tongue.

This is a VERY solid piece, would easily handle far more than my 300lb tongue weight.
As usual etrailer delivered exactly as promised.

Paul R.


its been hung on the back for a year. I never take it off.All kinds of weather, including Hurricane Matthew, Totally bulletproof.I have only one complaint, I bang my shins into it once in a whilewhen loading stuff in the back. But thats me, not the hitch.In a year its pulled 3 different boats, 2 different trailersand, in a pinch, anchor point for the chain while felling a tree.


just what i needed


This worked out perfectly. Had a flat bed put on one of our pickups, but the frame mounted hitch sat too far back from the new dock bumper. This ball mount moved it out just right so we didn't have to put a new receiver on the truck.

Jim H.


Holding up very well after a year.


I love this trailer hitch for my truck because it allows freedom to put tailgate up and down when we do equestrian camping. It has been a great purchase.





Excellent, heavy duty, well built. HOWEVER, the width of the lip where the ball mounts is over a 1/4" wider than standard. This means standard accessories such as stabilizers and backup guides will not be able to be used with this ball mount.

Garry R.


No change. I had to have a custom ball mount made because of the limitations of your product and the complete lack of anything else.


Hard to find item. But extends trailer back enough to open tail gate without hitting jack crank. Was not available at Northern or other suppliers locally.



Product has worked out to exceed my expectations. In fact it makes my trailer easier to tow.


This product allowed me to open my deck lid on the tow vehicle while hitched. I love it, was delivered promptly and is excellent quality, could not love it more!
Also increased capacity from 600/6000 to 1000/10000 lbs. while not needed I like the safety of the margin.

Skip G.


Could not be happier, great item.


This was exactly what I was trying to find in various stores with no luck. Quality built, American made product. Gives me the little extra distance for turning and allows tailgate to drop without hitting trailer.



I love the hitch. However, the crime [chrome] has come off of the ball and it has rusted. The extended hitch has worked very well in towing and launching my boat.


We got this so we could open our tailgate without having to unhitch the trailer. It works great! Product is good, service was fast... it made our trip to Alaska much happier (our dog needs the tailgate lowered so she can jump in and out for potty breaks). We still need to have the truck and trailer pretty much straight in line with each other... if there is too much angle left or right, we can't fully lower the tailgate. We drive a 2015 Ford F-150.


I ordered the Dexter nev-er-adjust electric trailer brake and bearing kit's for my Aliner. The installation was easy thanks to your instructional video's. The delivery was fast and everything fit perfectly. I took one twelve hundred mile trip and had no issues. I also ordered the Brophy ball mount because it was long enough for me to drop my tailgate without hitting the hitch crank.



Always have the products and ships immediately. Thank You


As advertised. Great way to get extra clearance under my sled deck to haul our enclosed trailer and still open the front door.



A year later and still no complaints. No signs of abnormal wear or stress on the hitch or stinger. Seems like it will do its job for a long while.

  • Long Ball Mount and Hitch Extension for 2000 Ford Excursion with Dual Rear-Mount Spare Tires
    The extra-long 2-inch ball mount we offer, part # EA40 from Brophy, is 15-3/4-inches long and may give you the clearance you need at your dual rear-mounted spare tires to let you use a friction sway control unit like # 83660 on a bracket # RP26003. If you measure from the center of your hitch pin hole rearward 15-3/4-inches that point will be where the center of the hitch ball hole will be. Do note however that this ball mount is rated for 6000-lbs gross trailer weight and 600-lbs tongue...

It is rated for 750 pounds tongue weight and 7,500 pounds gross trailer weight. And we also have ball mount # EA40 which has a 4 inch drop and measures 14-5/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole.

  • Do Longer Ball Mounts Have Lower Towing Capacities
    Typically the ball mounts that are longer or have large drops/rises have lower capacities than ones that are more standard in dimensions. This is designed to help take care of the capacity reduction question you mentioned since there isn't a hard and fast rule that applies for the scenarios you mentioned. For example, the Brophy ball mount part # BM20 that you mentioned has a capacity of 10,000 lb trailer weight and 1,000 lb tongue weight.

  • What Do I Need To Tow A Trailer With My Trucks Tailgate Down
    There isn't really a special type of trailer you can use with a longer tongue to clear the tailgate. The best option is to use an extra long ball mount to clear the tailgate because extenders like Trailer Hitch Extender for 2" Hitch Receivers - 8" Long # e88YR will cut the tongue weight capacity of your hitch in half. I recommend the Brophy Ball Mount for 2" Hitches part # BM20 which is 13-1/4" long so you can clear the tailgate. This particular ball mount has a 3/4" rise and 2" drop. To...

  • Long Ball Mount for Factory Hitch of 2011 Honda Pilot
    The Brophy ball mount part # BM20 isone of the least shortest options we have (I think that's what you meant to type) which would work great for your application. Since you don't plan to tow, you'd have no reason to use a hitch ball either.

  • Extension to Tow Trailer with Truck Tail Gate Down
    How long of an extension do you need? I've linked our complete selection for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers for you. One example is the Curt, part # C45795, that's 14 inches long. Another option is an extra-long ball mount like part # BM20. It's 13-1/4 inches long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball mount. This is often a better solution to your problem because you're not adding extra pieces to your tow setup. Hitch extenders can cause additional movement...

  • Weight Capacity of Brophy Ball Mount # BM20
    I cannot explain the contradictory information you found on the online retailer's site as the Brophy Ball Mount # BM20 that you referenced does indeed have the 10,000 lbs GTW and up to 1,000 lbs TW capacities as shown on the etrailer product page. I verified these specs with Brophy and they are also available on their website if you wish. With this ball mount you can use a hitch ball with a 1-inch shank diameter, such as the 2-5/16-inch Diameter # 63847 or the 1-7/8-inch Diameter # 19260.

  • Choosing the Correct Ball Mount for a 2013 GMC Terrain to Tow a Small Utility Trailer
    When choosing a ball mount, the first thing to consider is the size of your trailer hitch receiver opening. Your Terrain will have either a 2 inch receiver opening or a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. You can find this by measuring the height and width of the receiver opening on your trailer hitch. After that, we will want to find the correct rise or drop needed to tow your trailer level. To do this, we will need two measurements. You will want to park your truck and trailer on level ground...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2013 Ford Edge and R-Pod Trailer

It has a 3/4 inch rise and a 2 inch drop with a weight capacity of 10,000 lbs, which should be more than sufficient for your 188 inch R-Pod. You will also need a pin and clip for this mount and I recommend the # PC3. For more information, I have provided a link to our FAQ page on how to choose the correct ball mount.

  • Will Using a Hitch Extender Help in Carrying a Motorcycle and Tow a Camper With a 2006 Chevy Truck
    A hitch extender, like part # HE18, will allow you to move the hitch point 18 inches from the your OEM trailer hitch on your 2006 Chevrolet Silverado. However, the draw back of using a hitch extender is it will cut your hitch's over all capacity by 50 percent. With the weight you plan to haul in your truck bed and the added camper, a hitch extender will not work. I recommend going with an extended ball mount, like # BM20. This mount will give you a length of 13-1/4 inches from the center...

  • Downsizing Trailer Wheel and Tire Combination to Lower Personal Water Craft PWC Trailer Height
    The 5.70-8 could be a viable replacement size for your PWC, but I also have another solution that may work to make loading and unloading easier. The benefits of downsizing your tire and wheels are mainly the height loading aspect. With your current setup you have an outer diameter of 20.5 and the down sized tire is 18.1 inches. You may also see some ride stability because the center of gravity will be lower so you may get less sway when towing. Some drawbacks of downsizing your tires...

  • Ball Mount, Hitch Ball, and Locking Hitch Pin Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-150
    For a ball mount, or drawbar, rated at 10,000 pounds that fits in a 2 inch hitch receiver, I recommend the Brophy Ball Mount 3/4 Inch Rise or 2 Inch Drop, 13-1/4 Inches Long # BM20. This ball mount has a 2 inch drop or 3/4 inch rise. When used with a standard hitch ball, the small drop will help you tow your boat trailer level. This ball mount uses a hitch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank. A great hitch ball option that will work with the Brohpy Ball Mount # BM20 is the Curt Hitch Ball...

  • Longer Ball Mount Recommendation for Adding Distance Between Hitch Ball and Bumper
    There isn't a specific distance you want to have between the bumper of a vehicle and the hitch ball, but in general you'll want more than an inch. This will give you additional leeway when hitching up the trailer so that you don't slam the coupler of the trailer into the bumper as your backing up and will give you a bit more clearance. I'd recommend going with a longer ball mount like the Brophy # BM20 which is 13-1/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole. For a 2 inch...

  • Can the Curt 18 Inch Hitch Extender Be Used for Towing
    The Curt Extender for 2" Receivers part # C45796 can be used for towing but they do reduce your weight capacity but 50%. If you give me more info on what you are trying to do I may have other options for you but I typically recommend using a ball mount with long shank instead, the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount part # BM20 for example as this will not limit your capacity beyond the 10,000 lb rating.

    As long as the OEM hitch receiver is not placed drastically behind the bumper, a standard ball mount like the one that comes with the Curt Starter Towing Kit # C45534 will work just fine. Your best bet is to measure from the center of your hitch pin hole on the hitch to the edge of the bumper and determine what that measurement it.

I have attached a list of the extended length ball mounts that we offer below. If you already have a bike rack then you can use the MaxxTow Ball Mount part # MT70066.

The downside to using a hitch extender of this type is that it will reduce your hitch's overall capacity by 50%. Depending on what you are hauling this may or may not be an issue.
