Curt Class II Drawbar - 5" Rise - 9-5/8" Long - 3,500 lbs - C45014

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (1972 Customer Reviews)

Corrosion-resistant ball mount is 9-5/8" long from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball mount hole and fits Class II 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers. Ball mount can be used in the rise position only.


I am an infrequent trailer user, but getting my daughter home from college was necessary in March. This drawbar fits my hitch and utility trailer well, did exactly what it is supposed to do, and was the last thing to be concerned about right then. I have a '11 Mini Countryman S with a Class II receiver from Mini Fini, (which cost twice as much as a Curt) where the hole is flush with the fake grille near the bottom of the bumper cover, so I needed the long bar to reach out past the bumper. The Curt receiver for that car hangs visible underneath the bumper (ugly), which also increases the lever arm on the receiver beam and would have needed an even taller rise. (Curt take note!) All just part of the kit to create an occasional 1 ton pickup out of my Mini, leaving the "bed" at home most of the time.


This drawbar did exactly what I was hoping for. It leveled out my trailer and took the weight off the tongue. Perfect!

Mike S.


The drawbar has worked great. Ive hauled my bike to Florida and back and other places with no problems.


Purchased for a Hyundai Elantra. After a 2" ball is mounted, there is about 7.5" from the top of the square shaft to the top of the ball. This is what was needed to get the center of the ball 18" off the ground for most U-hual trailers.
This design has no plate edge protruding below the square shaft. This helps reduce scraping when going over bumps, which is an annoying issue with my other ball mount.
I would have much preferred the euro ball mount, which has a nice 45' bend to avoid scraping, and a ball that will never vibrate loose, but one was not offered with this much rise.

The ball mount is well made of solid steel, not a hollow tube. Finish quality is excellent.
The mount does not come with the locking pin needed and so that must be ordered separately with the ball.

Item was packed a little loose in the box and was clanking around with the other item I bought, but they did not get scratched up.


The trailer hitch works great, it allows me to tow my 4' X 8' Trailer behind my Auto without bottoming out like my old straight hitch setup used to do. I feel very satisfied with the product, the hitch and ball where both in great condition and installed the way they were designed to.


I needed a ball mount that boosted the level of my new rafting trailer. UHaul sold me one with a 3" lift that wasn't enough, and then wouldn't let me return the hitch once it had been used for a short drive to pick up my trailer. etrailer has lots and lots of ball mounts and I initially ordered one that didn't allow enough space between the ball and my Subaru bumper. Mike, from etrailer, went out to the warehouse, measured the ball mounts and sent me a photo with the exact measurements. I am so grateful for this great customer service and now have exactly what I need.


Great product, fast shipping, great customer service, fixed my problem I just wish I ordered it sooner! 4/5 stars because the male piece could have provided a snugger fit inside the hitch, but hey it will get the job done.

Thanks for the follow up Jacob. If you would like to snug up the fit of the drawbar and your hitch I recommend the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061-125.


Quick. Fair Price. Excellent Communication. First, we ordered the hitch and had it installed. Then we needed the perfect fit for the task at hand: to pull a tank with gray water through a campground. Very specific. Just for our toad, a Smart car. has the perfect software to lead you to what you need for the perfect combination. Quick shipment, reasonably priced. Direct communication for every step in the process. All in all, exactly what you’d hope for during these extremely dysfunctional time.


The 5 inch rise on this hitch ball mount was perfect for my 07 Toyota Rav4. The rear door opens to the side on this year Rav4 and it has plenty of clearance. I tow a 16 ft aluminium boat and this 5 inch rise ball mount works perfectly on the Rav.


etrailer shipped fast and had great communication. The hitch was built very well look like a quality product and was just what I needed. The 5 inch rise was perfect for our 2009 Toyota sienna.


I just want to say buy from Etrailer products an customers service is out standing I ordered the wrong ball for this set up they sent me an email stating so I said to send me the right one at what ever the cost they fixed the problem nothing extra an as u can see perfect fit. Thanks you Etrailer


Fit perfectly, arrived quickly what more can you want? Needed a tall hitch so the trailer would ride level.


The 5" rise works very well on an '07 Subaru Forester to level out a utility trailer with 12" wheels. Shipping was prompt as well.


Fits right in my car as they said, looks amazing. Thank you!!! ETRAILER.COM


Fantastic product, Works great for the 2001 Oldsmobile Siloute Mini Van that I recently purchased. I had a class II hitch already installed by previous owner and I was not sure if it was a class I or class II and etrailer explained that a class I will have a restriction inside of the 1 1/4 inch square opening that prevents a class II from being inserted. That was helpful to get the correct hitch ordered. After that advice I could tell this is the one that would match what I had.Thanks etrailer! FAST SHIP ALSO.

George B.


I have used this for a Year now.I am as pleased now as I was when I first received it. It has worked great for towing my boat as well as for towing a utility trailer. Due to the fact that my van sits so low to the ground, this 6inch uplifted shape is perfect. Would recommend to anyone that has a need for this type of hitch.


Ordered this product for my 2015 Rav 4 and it has worked perfectly. I tow a trailer about 4 times a week and needed a hitch that would step the ball up to make the trailer level and allow the wheel to be lowered without manually lifting the trailer myself.
Product came quickly and was advertised. Would order again if I needed one for another vehicle.



I still use the trailer several times a week and use your product each time. Performed perfectly. Thanks for checking back.


I ordered the ball mount to fit my trailer under construction that was changed to an off-road axle option to keep the construction of the trailer moving forward. E-trailer website provides all the information one needs to correctly determine the correct rise or fall of ball mounts and has a wide selection to choose from. This ball mount will fit my trailer and tow-vehicle requirements.



The ball mount is the correct size and rise for my trailer. The etrailer videos helped me calculate the correct size and rise for my trailer.


Long shank necessary to extend beyond bumper.


I replaced my trailer hitch drawbar with the same model drawbar- both purchased from etrailer because they are well made and in my case the first one bent when I accidentally jack-knifed my trailer while backing it up. It's better to have the drawbar bend than have my trailer frame bend!


I was very suspicious how will it fit and suit Dodge Challenger. But when I received trailer hitch, and by they way it travelled across the planet to reach me, I was totally impressed with the quality, ease of installation and accessories which I ordered with it. I basically installed it myself with a help of a friend, it took about 30 minutes to fix it. It really saved me as I needed the trailer to transport my bike to the race track and I didn't want to change the car.
So the conclusion, I own it for more than a year and have zero issues or complaints about the hitch or accessories. I used to travel long and short distances and in average I use it every second week. You barely can notice it when you remove drawbar so it is very good solution.


The drawbar has the perfect rise I need for towing a small trailer with my sedan. The drawbar that came with the hitch was way too low and put more weight on the hitch because the trailer was not level. This drawbar leveled out the trailer so that more of the weight is on the trailer axle and not on the hitch.

When measuring to determine how much rise you need, don't forget to add about an inch or so to compensate for how much the vehicle rear suspension will compress once the trailer tongue weight is on the hitch.


I'm so very glad I found etrailer, I purchased this hitch and a ball mount and was easily able to have it installed onto the car without the need to trim my vehicle's heat-shield. It looks as great as it is functional and adds a good bit of versatility to the vehicle as well as a nice cosmetic look when not in use. The hitch tucks nicely under the vehicle and supports weight well. I drive a Fiesta ST with already low clearance on the suspension, but am still able to tow a small trailer which is really nice to be able to do with a smaller vehicle. Excellent product and e-trailer was great to work with an answered any questions I had!


The tow hitch on my daily driver (Kia Soul) is much lower than our other tow vehicle (1926 model T) Using this hitch allows us to tow with the trailer near level. Only important because it's a super light weight teardrop. It is not set up with a landing leg or levelers. So the trailer can only be used when hitched to a vehicle. It's two pieces of steel welded together with two holes drilled in it. As long as it doesn't fall apart it's excellent.
E-trailer shipped quickly, no hassles! Sometimes it's not the product. It's the seller.


Fantastic vehicle-specific hitch! I had it unpacked and installed in half an hour and most of that time was finding tools! Instructions were clear and simple, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase!


I ordered this hitch to raise the height of the boat trailer that I tow on a 2013 Hyundai Sonata. The receiver had to be mounted underneath the rear bumper so it was quite low to the ground. This hitch solved the problem of the trailer scraping the ground going to and from my driveway. I ordered the hitch on a Friday evening and it arrived the following Wednesday. I am extremely happy with the product and the service that I received from and would recommend this company to anyone needing their products.


Excellent Customer Service kept me from ordering the wrong parts for my hitch. If you're confused -- give them a call!

I recommend consulting with your local dealer regarding the towing capacity of your vehicle.

    Class II trailer hitches and accessories all have 1-1/4 inch receivers/shanks. Class III accessories and hitches are 2 inch. If you have a Class I or Class II trailer hitch then you are supposed to use the ball mount recommended by the trailer hitch manufacturer for warranty reasons. If you have a 2004 Scion xB then all of the hitches for it are Class I trailer hitches and you should be using ball mount # C45521.

  • Why Must the Curt Class II Drawbar # C45014 be Used in the Rise Position Only
    I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said the Class II Drawbar, # C45014, has not been tested for use in the drop position. They only test it for the rise position. If you were to use this ball mount in the drop position and it fails, the warranty would be voided and you could be responsible for all damages. If you need a Class II drawbar with a 5 inch drop, I recommend looking at the Draw-Tite Class II Drawbar, # 36078. Keep in mind, most Class I and Class II trailer hitches are only...

Now these options only can be used on Class II hitches whereas the # C45520 can fit Class I or Class II so you'd need to verify that with the hitch of your vehicle.

The best option is to go with the regular ball mount # C45014 and a properly sized ball for the trailer coupler. If the coupler takes a 1-7/8 inch ball use # A-80. For a 2 inch ball use # A-82.

If you have a Class I hitch this ball mount may not fit depending on the brand of the hitch. For a Class I hitch we have several ball mounts that offer a 3-1/4 inch drop: # C45022, # C45026, and # C45027. Also keep in mind that the tongue weight of the trailer will pull down on the back of the vehicle some so that can help in keeping the trailer level.
