Corrosion-resistant ball mount is 6-1/4" long and fits 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitch receivers.


Order was processed quickly, delivery was very fast. Although corner of box was damaged, no parts were lost due to proper packing of smaller parts. cost was good. Product quality is very good.


Perfect fit for my new Volkswagen ID.4 1st Edition


All equipment was delivered on time. Hitch, wiring harness, receiver and ball. Watched video's on installation of harness and hitch. Went down to my garage and installed both with the help of my girlfriend. Very satisfied with the products and the installation. etrailer supplied the goods and the knowledge. I am very happy that I went this route.


Received hitch receiver and accessories in perfect condition. Installation was very easy. (Especially if you have a lift). I fit this on my 2014 camry SE. Everything fit perfectly. The installation video helped a great deal with measurements. Shipping was fast. I searched around for the best price and had the lowest overall price. Big thanks.


The hitch was just what I wanted. Upside down, it clears bumper and puts the trailer height at level position. Shipping was fast. Thanks.


This is the first drawbar I ever bought. It is solid metal and has a rated capacity much greater than I intend to use it for. It's a Curt product but fits well in my DrawTite receiver.


Delivered quicker than expected. All the dimensions were given on your website, this made it easy for me to chose the right drawbar for my SUV hitch.


I received the ATV drawbar today. It is a well constructed product that will last for many years. Thanks again for you superb service and products.

Great, no rust. Still looking like new.
Dave M - 08/05/2017


Works great for atv and big utv side by sides has just enough height if you turn it around it wont catch going up and down steep hills .. instead of a hith ball "d" ring comes in handy for pulling towing


Worked good, used it for my ATV fit perfectly to flip over and raise trailers to proper height. Does exactly what I need it to.


Product was as described. Etrailer answered my questions promptly giving me confidence that I was ordering the correct product.


always quality products from etrailer


Exactly what I wanted, fast shipping, good tracking, highly recommend.


Prompt service, competitive pricing, quality items. Thanks!


SUPER deal.... Quality stuff. Thanks a ton....


Exactly as described and very quick shipping. Perfect!


Everything was perfect for my wife's electric scooter. Awesome job team!!


I use it on my 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid for small pulls.
It works exactly as you'd expect, which is a good thing.

No surprises == 5 stars!


a bit short, close to bumper.

Curt does offer some longer ballmounts that have an identical rise/ and capacity. The ballmount you purchased as a 6-1/4 inch length, measured from the hitch pin hole laterally to where the ball would attach. They offer one thats an inch longer, at 7-1/4 inches as part # C45521
Curt Class II Drawbar - 2-5/8" Rise, 3-1/4" Drop - 7-1/4" Long - 3,500 lbs
or one thats 9-3/8 inches long as part # C45016
Curt Class II Drawbar - 2-5/8" Rise, 3-1/4" Drop - 9-3/8" Long - 3,500 lbs
. Either of these would provide more clearance to the vehicle bumper.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 10/09/2018


Good Quality, Exactly as expected


Best price for the thing, seems solidly made, hasn't broken yet.


Wonderful service! Thank you so much!


Great product. Just as I needed. Very prompt delivery


It works.

  • How to Pick Out Ball Mount for 2015 Chevy Impala to Allow Trailer to be Towed Level
    Sounds like you are in need of a ball mount that offers more rise than the part # C45017 that you are using on your 2015 Chevy Impala. In order to get the correct ball mount you are going to need to take two measurements. The distance from the top of your hitch opening to the ground and the distance from the bottom of the coupler lip on the trailer to the ground when it is sitting level. The difference between these two measurements is the rise/drop you need. I attached a help article...

    For your 2016 Toyota Camry the Curt hitch part # C12107 is a confirmed fit since it also fits the hybrid models. For trailer wiring then the Curt kit part # C55567 would work great and is easy to install. The ball mount you'd need is the part # C45017 and then for a ball # 19256 would be correct for a 1-7/8 inch size.

    There will be no issue with the dual exhaust on your 2005 Mercedes E-Class sedan and the Curt Class I Receiver Hitch # C11701. This hitch does require drilling for installation. I have attached installation instructions for you. If you are planning on doing some light-weight towing, the ball mounts recommend for use with the # C11701 hitch are # C45562, # C45017, and # C45561.

For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring you will need to visit a local Mercedes dealer since there are no aftermarket harnesses that will fit.

    For a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch with a concealed cross tube for a more discrete appearance on your 2012 Buick Regal Turbo the best option is the Curt # C12115 that you referenced.

The wiring you referenced, CURT Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, part # 56098, is the correct wiring kit for your vehicle. For a ball mount use # C45017.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2011 Buick LaCrosse CXL
    Curt trailer hitch # C12115 has a capacity of 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 350 pounds tongue weight. But I checked the owner's manual online for your 2011 Buick LaCrosse and found that it has a towing capacity of 1,000 pounds so you are limited to that even though the hitch is rated higher. If the gross trailer weight is under 1,000 pounds then you can pull it with your LaCrosse. A 17 foot boat and trailer is likely heavier than that though. The recommended ball mount for this...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2014 Chevy Malibu LS to Tow a 16 Foot Jon Boat
    Curt trailer hitch # C12115 is rated for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 350 pounds tongue weight so a 16 foot jon boat with 30 horse power motor won't be a problem for the hitch. But for the vehicle you will need to look in the owners manual for the towing capacity. It will likely be lower than the hitch rating. Whichever ends up being lower is the capacity you will need to go by. The correct ball mount for this hitch is # C45017. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch...

    The 2 inch Diameter Tow Ready Hitch Ball with Short Shank, part # 19258, would work well with the Curt Class II Drawbar, part # C45017. For a 1-7/8 inch diameter hitch ball I recommend part # 19256. The C45017 will fit hitch receivers with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening, and measures 6-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the hitch ball hole. This draw bar is Class l or Class ll compatible. If you need a hitch pin and clip I recommend part # F-4. I have attached links...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2015 Buick Regal GS
    We carry hitches from two manufacturers, Cequent Performance Products, who manufactures Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite and Curt Manufacturing. In terms of overall build quality and the quality of the finish, the hitches from both companies are pretty equal. I agree with you about the quality of Curt products. That said, the Curt trailer hitch # C12115 is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Buick Regal GS. Trimming of the fascia is required for the Impala models, but not for the Regal GS. We don't...

It has a concealed cross tube so it would be mainly out of plain sight. Check out the install video I attached.

    A hitch that came off of a 1999 Toyota Camry would not also fit a 2015 Toyota Camry. The vehicles are different enough that a new hitch design would be required. The hitch you will want is the Curt Hitch part # C12107. The correct trailer wiring would be part # C55567. If you also need a ball mount you would want the # C45017 and then for hitch balls # 19256 and # 19258.

    The hitch you're needing is the Curt Class II, part # C12207, which we do offer. If you were wanting to use the hitch for towing purposes (as opposed to using it as an attachment point for a bike rack or cargo tray) you'll also need a trailer wiring harness like part # 119178KIT, a ball mount like part # C45017 and a trailer ball like # 19256 for a 1-7/8 ball or # 19258 for a 2 inch ball.

    The ball mount recommended with the Curt Class II hitch # C12107, when installed in the rise position will place the base of the trailer ball at approximately 13-5/8 inches above the ground. The ball mount is part # C45017. If 13-5/8 inches wouldn't be high enough to level your trailer, you can measure the height above the ground of the bottom of the coupler when the trailer is level.

If you were wanting a ball mount with a similar rise where you could interchange the trailer ball, I'd recommend going with a standard type ball mount, like part # C45017. If you anticipate needing to change between 1-7/8 and 2 inch trailer balls frequently, I'd recommend using a interchangeable ball set-up like what Convert-A-Ball offers....
