Just your basic ball mount, the product is just like most 2” Hitch ball mounts, the service wasn’t very good though.
Ordered on June 15th (product was in stock) took them 6 days to send it out, took another 6 days in shipping and got all the way to my post office two days before leaving on vacation (I needed it for the vacation) and the post office said “box was empty and they notified seller” etrailer sent a new one (got here a week after my vacation) in a damaged box (packaging is horrible, little bit of paper in a box with a 5 lbs ball mount) almost lost this one too.
I don’t believe I’ll be using etrailer in the future (had issues before)


Does the job, however there's a lot of play when hitch mount is inserted into the hitch and when towing with an empty trailer. Very loud. Have to buy a silencer that goes around and secures the product.

David P.


So far so good - thx for checking


Looks & works great. Easy to install. Make sure you order or have a locking pin and ball to go with it.


This is a great all-purpose hitch. I've used it to mount a heavy-duty bike rack and a steel T-rack to carry a canoe as well as lumber. Most recently I hauled 5 x 8 cargo trailers full of plants, then furniture for a 600-mile move. It was simple to use, problem free, very strong and sturdy. Now that I live on some acreage, I see a trailer in my future, so this will get a lot more use. I drive a 2013 Tacoma, so this is a good size hitch at a good price with sufficient capacity for my needs. I do use a key lock for the hitch as well.


Ordered the whole trailer hitch package but did not include the pin for the ball mount. CHEAP and will never order from you again


Excellent workmanship, easy to use, str ong


I know absolutely nothing about hitches! I checked prices and products in my area and was dissatisfied with high prises and confusion over which product would be best for my vehicle. I did an extensive search on the internet and found I called and talked to Jonathan. He walked me thru the entire order process and explained details about the products. I placed my order and received it in time frame I asked for. My local Toyota dealer installed the hitch without any problems! I am totally satisfied with the pricing, product and customer service. I highly recommend!!!


Not much can go wrong with this can it? It's fine.


The product was going to come in late but etrailer offered a more expensive hitch substitute for the product I ordered. I was completely satisfied with the service, communication and product. This is the second time I purchased from etrailer.





It's a ball mount. Feels substantial and well made. Paint looks good, nice looking welding. Can't say anything bad. I understand that the hitch balls come in different sizes and types, but it would have been nice to get a simple hitch pin and clip when buying the hitch and ball mount together, as I was expecting that to be included with one or the other.



Year later, still works fine. Still think it should have included a hitch pin and clip.


Instalation was pretty quick and easy, the completed installation worked great on my new trailer.


Perfect fit for my Curt Receiver Hitch for my Venza !


This hitch is perfect for my needs. Great, quality products, from a knowledgeable source, offering competitive prices. Also, the brief video assist eased my installation efforts.


I'm assuming I have to buy the pin separately, but this wasn't pointed out to me, so when I got ready to use this I had to stop and get a pin.


Good product. Just as one should expect.


I seldom take the time to write a review but I felt compelled to share my excellent overall experience with I ordered the C13200 trailer hitch receiver, 2" ball, 2" ball mount receiver, pin/clip, and C56217 wiring harness for my 2017 Toyota Highlander XLE. All arrived in no time and in excellent condition. The installation videos and PDF documents are outstanding. I installed the hitch receiver in roughly 45 minutes - includes time to convince brother in-law to come over to help hoist it into place. Wiring harness installation was a breeze, roughly 20 minutes (again, great instructional videos). I could not be happier with the finished product. Thanks for making this a trouble free installation. If you are considering adding a hitch, etc. go no further, you are at the right place...order away. Its very easy to install and you will save a trailer load of cash!!!


Great product! Easy install. Completed project myself in 1.5 hours...would recommend for any skill level...just gotta be willing to crawl around on your back


Continues to withstand the workload.

We are more than pleased with your products and the transaction. Thanks again!


This fits my 2" hitch just as advertised. Fit and finish is perfect.


Slips right into the hitch and works pe rfectly!


Very good!


The video and the written instructions for installing the hitch were very helpful for a novice like me. In the process I saw that there was a good reason for every tool listed for installing it. The hitch fits perfectly and looks very sturdy. Now we can't wait to be able to take our bicycles with us when we go to the mountains from Denver, letting us enjoy all the biking trails. Also the hitch arrived only 3 days after ordering it - great!

Dean D.


Great -no problems and very convenient.


Ordered a complete hitch package for my GMC Terrain. Every piece was included and all of it was top notch quality. The fit was perfect and installation was a breeze. The wiring harness matched up perfectly with the OEM plugs, no splicing or crimping required. I highly recommend this company and its products.

Glenn M.


The hitch has performed perfectly. Im a very satisfied customer.


I like it in the up position to give more ground clearance.

  • Is The Reese Sway-Control Bracket Compatible With The Curt Ball Mount # C45030
    Hi David, The Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # C45030 is approximately 2-1/2" wide. The Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 can fit ball mounts that are smaller than 2-5/8" wide so these two components would be compatible with each other.

  • Trailer Hitch Suggestion for 2022 Chevy Colorado LT
    We do indeed offer hitch options for the 2022 Chevy Colorado. Of the available options, I'd recommend the US made etrailer brand Class III hitch, part # e98909. The hitch has a 8000 lb towing/800 lb tongue weight capacity, which actually exceeds the towing capacity of the truck itself, so there's no doubt that the hitch is tough. For a trailer wiring harness and trailer connector that provides both a 7-way and a 4 pole trailer connector, use part # HM40975-11998. For a ball mount, use...

  • Does Tongue Weight Sag Get Factored In When Picking Out Rise/Drop Ball Mount
    This is a really great question! So ideally you have the trailer sitting as level as possible when you are towing. So that means that if your vehicle suspension is going to sag with the tongue weight of your trailer on the ball mount you'd want to compensate for that with the amount of rise/drop ball mount you select. How this normally works out is that you determine the drop needed (in your case 8 inches) and then go with a ball mount slightly higher like the Curt part # C45100 which...

You might consider the less expensive Curt # C13410 Class IIl as well. The Curt hitch features a concealed design that hides the hitch crossbar behind the bumper for a cleaner appearance.

I would instead suggest the Draw-Tite hitch # 75690 over the Curt hitch because if you decide to transport anything like a bike rack or cargo carrier in the future you will need to use a stabilization strap # 18050 per Curt's warranty and with the Draw-Tite hitch you won't.

  • How to Choose Right Ball Mount for 2010 Honda Odyssey Pulling 2008 Jayco Pop-Up Camper
    Rise and drop is going to be the most important measurement when it comes to a ball mount; getting a ball mount with an extended length will only be necessary if, for example, your hitch is underneath your vehicle quite a bit and you need the added length to clear that amount of space. In order to choose the ball mount with the correct rise and drop, there are a couple measurements you'll need to take. First, make sure both your 2010 Odyssey and 2008 Jayco are parked on level ground; you'll...
