The CURT Curt Steel Ball Mount Trailer Hitch Ball Mount has worked well for me. Easy to use and has held up nicely. Zero issues.


Very pleased with etrailer. Very easy to order from website. Fast delivery, easy to install ,perfect fit . Thanks.

Perfect as I expected with no problems so far
George - 08/07/2021


Outstanding hitch, wiring harness & attachments. Online help (when given the trailer manufacturer and year) chose correct size and offset for ball to perfectly align trailer and car. You can see the lawn tractor sitting absolutely level on the trailer with the snow flying. It shows why I was in such a rush to acquire the hitch. From online chat with sales agent to her selection of right fit for the particular trailer and car to the ease of installation and the perfect ride behind my RAV4...RATING: A+! Couldn't be happier. Expedited 2 day shipping arrived exactly as promised. So impressed!!! Thank you etrailer for outstanding service. Very happy customer!


I use this to pull a small sailboat trailer. It's worked fine, and after a year of use still looks new. I'm very satisfied.

Ive been using it for two years now with no problems at all. It looks like new.

Perfect fit for 2 inch Draw Tite receiver. good price, fast shipping.


Great quality. I can pull anything with this hitch.


Looks like a nice piece of work, and works great, just bought a utility trailer and brought back home.. Works like a champ..


I installed two Curt hitches last year. One was for a 2006 Honda CR-V and the other was for a 2011 Toyota RAV4. Both were used to tow small U-Haul trailers across the state and both performed well. They were easy to install. The only downside I have is that the ball mount rattles around in the receiver a bit more than previous hitches I have had. All in all, though, I am pleased with the product.


Pretty painless install, I was able to do it with out extra hands, with the rear of the car up on ramps. If installing on a CRV, removing the exhaust hanger in front of the rear wheels made this go much more smoothly.


My shipment arrived ahead of time and in great shape. No damage to any of the items I ordered. This ball mount is as described when ordered and is very sturdy and allow me to use my new vehicle to tow my utility trailer

Thanks for checking in on this item, as when I received to date the product has performed great and holding up well. I purchased this item along with a hitch assembly and am very satisfied with the product and would definitely look at purchasing any needed items from your company if the need arises.
mark k - 11/15/2017


What can i say? It's solid. The receiver mounts low on my Honda CR-V so I just flipped the ball around and it brought the ball to an appropriate height for small utility trailers.


Fits well. Adjustability is great. Very satisfied, Recommend this hitch to everyone.


Just as expected, it is a quality piece. Only complaint is, like most others, the fit is a
little sloppy. I usually don't keep the ball mount in the receiver when not towing
so I'm sure it will be ok.

perfect fit

This is the third time I've purchased from etrailer and have been very happy with the quality of their merchandise, the price and the speed of delivery. The website is tops. There's no surprises about anything they sell. Clear photos, complete spec's and fabulous installation videos. This is a first class organization from start to finish for the customer. If you're not a customer yet... you will be before long!!


Made in USA
Was all assembled and all
I had to do was put it on my truck and hook up the trailer to this hitch.
I had a hard time finding a 1 7/8 ball to fit a 1in hole, but etrailer come threw. Thanks


Fast delivery and received exactly what I ordered. Thank you etrailer!


Works great!


Great quality and service.


Great product. Even greater service. I wish other internet companies had this good of customer service.


Initially shipped without the pin from the manufacturer.

Etrailer took care of it immediately.

Product has been excellent.


Works great! No issues.
Very pleased
with etrailer. After I ordered the wrong part, etrailer took care of me.
They were great to work with.


This product is well made and it works great pulling my teardrop trailer. I would recommend this item.


Super solid mount at a great price. Just the right drop for my boat trailer.


Product quality is top notch and instructions were helpful. I would definitely recommend these products.


I had a great experience with this company. They answered my email in a reasonable time and the shipping was very fast. Cheap prices, fast shipping, good communication, and a quality product. That pretty much covers my experience with them.

  • Can Curt Class III Ball Mount # C45034 be Used in Rise Position
    If you removed the hitch ball of the Curt Class III Ball Mount # C45034 and reinstalled it with the ball mount in the rise position this would be possible to be used in the rise position.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2013 Toyota Highlander Towing Travel Trailer
    Thanks for all of the dimensions you listed. Since drop/rise needs the measurement from the ball mount platform and not the top of the ball you will need to take one more measurement to be sure. That measurement compared to the 14-1/2 inches is the rise/drop you would need. Check out the help article I attached for more info on this. For trailer wiring you would then want the part # 118449.

  • Can A 2015 Honda CRV Pull A 5 x 10 Trailer
    Yes, as long as you do not exceed the gross towing capacity of your 2015 Honda CRV. The tow rating of the vehicle can be found in your owners manual. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # 75742. This hitch is a class III hitch with a 675lb tongue weight and a 4500lb gross towing weight. For your wiring I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector Item # 118561. This harness is a simple plug in instillation...

  • Ball Mount with 2 inch Drop that Can Fit Shallow Hitch Pin Trailer Hitch
    We have a ball mount with a short enough distance from end of ball mount to pin hole diameter with 2 inches of drop with the Curt part # C74WR but the Curt # C45034 you mentioned has this dimension at 2-1/2 inches.

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring & Ball Mount for 2003 Honda CR-V
    Curt Class III hitch # 13535 is a confirmed fit on your 2003 Honda CR-V, as is the 4-pole trailer wiring harness kit # 118336. Curt part # C45036 does have a 2-inch ball but for an equivalent item with a pre-installed 1-7/8-inch ball you can use # C45034. You can refer to the linked articles for tips on the hitch install and for general towing guidelines.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500
    I have a solution for you, but we do not offer, not have I ever seen any type of adjustable trailer coupler like you mentioned and we do not have any bumper mounted hitches for your Silverado. I understand not wanting to add an aftermarket hitch, when a bumper pull might do the job, but since those are so limited you really are best served by adding an aftermarket hitch like the Draw-Tite # 76016 . Adding an aftermarket hitch will allow you to tow your current trailer safely, plus give...

  • Trailer Hitch, Wiring and Ball Mount Recommendation for 2015 Ford Edge
    For a trailer hitch for your 2015 Ford Edge to tow your trailer I'd recommend the mostly hidden etrailer hitch part # e36RR that has plenty of towing capacity and installs pretty easily as well. For trailer wiring then the Tekonsha kit part # 118669 is the easiest to install and most reliable. For a ball mount with a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball then you'd want the Curt Class III part # C45034 and you'd be ready to tow.

  • Compatibility of a Curt Hitch on a 1998 Nissan 200SX
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11261 is a custom-fit Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch opening designed to fit the 1998 Nissan 200SX. The Curt hitch is designed to fit up under the bumper and to bolt on to the frame of your vehicle. You will need to know what your vehicle's towing and tongue weight capacities are before installation. The Nissan 200SX has an approximate towing capacity of 1,000 lbs. The max tongue weight for your vehicle will be between 100-150 lbs. The max tongue weight...

  • Availability of Just Ball Mount of Curt Ball Mount # C45036
    Yes, for just the ball mount portion of the part # C45036 you'd want the part # C45312 instead. This doesn't come with the pin and clip # C21504. If you want the smaller 1-7/8 inch ball kit use # C45034 or # C45041 for the 2-5/16 inch.

  • Easiest Hitch Installation for 2017 Subaru Forester for Towing 4 x 8 Rented Utility Trailer
    Of the hitches available for your 2017 Subaru Forester, the easiest installation will be with the 2-inch etrailer hitch # E98839 and the Draw-Tite # 75876 that you referenced. Both are no-drill installs that will take about an hour and both require unbolting the car's heat shield. I linked a video showing hitch # E98839 being installed on a Forester. I also included the written instructions and a helpful article. For a wiring harness use kit # 118467 which is a simple plug-and-play installation....

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 1-7/8 Inch Diameter Hitch Ball for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The 2018 Toyota 4Runner comes with a 2 inch hitch receiver that is commonly referred to as a Class III hitch. There are ball mounts that will allow for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball that will fit your trailer hitch receiver. For the most adjustable option, I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B which will give you the 3 standard hitch ball sizes and give you the ability to adjust vertically for your trailer coupler height to tow level. It also has a nice stowable feature...

  • What Curt Hitch and 4-Way Wiring Harness is Best for My 2022 Honda Passport?
    Yes, the Curt Hitch Receiver - 2" # C13421 will fit your 2022 Honda Passport. As far as the correct 4-way wiring harness, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118809 because of its better-quality converter box than its competition. If you are planning to tow a small utility trailer with your vehicle like the detail Detail K2 Multi Utility Trailer # K2MMT4X6, I recommend a ball mount/ball like the Curt Class III Ball Mount with 1-7/8" Ball -...

  • Can a Motorcycle Carrier be Used on a 2017 Toyota Sienna
    I looked in the owner's manual for your 2017 Toyota Sienna and the tongue weight capacity is 350 lbs. I understand that the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76112 has a 500 lbs tongue weight capacity. However, the vehicle and trailer hitch are tested separately of one another which means you will need to abide by the lower of the two ratings which is the vehicle at 350 lbs. I know this is not what you are wanting to hear but I need to make sure that you are aware that the...

  • What Bike Rack do You Recommend a Non-Recumbent Trike and a Regular Bike on a 2015 Ford Escape?
    The only option we have that will give you the flexibility of mounts to accommodate a non-recumbent trike is to use the roof-mounted SeaSucker Trike Rack for 1 Trike - Wheel Mount - Vacuum Cup Mounted # 298-BD1005. However, it is important to note that the trike rack comes with a 45-pounds weight capacity. The only hitch trike option we have is designed for recumbent delta or recumbent tadpole style trikes. Unfortunately, this rack will not work if you have a non-recumbent trike. If the...

  • What Hitch Weight Capacity do I Need for Hauling My 230 Pound Motorcycle on My 2020 Kia Sportage?
    As far as the tongue weight capacity on hitches, every hitch has a specific rating. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13281, for example, has a maximum tongue weight of 525 pounds while the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76074 has a maximum tongue weight of 675 pounds. In addition, we need to consider the weight capacity of the motorcycle carrier itself. If you were looking at the Ultra-Fab Dirt Bike Carrier for 2" Hitches - With Ramp # UF48-979033,...
