I purchased Curt's 6" drop ball mount for my 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport which is not lifted but has 32" tall tires. The utility trailer I plan to purchase recommends a 12" tongue/ball height for level towing. The Curt 6" drop ball mount places my tongue/ball height at 13.5" which is acceptable. The bottom of my tow ball mounting nut is now 12" above the road surface. Plenty of clearance for safe towing. I'm very pleased with the quality and functionality of my Curt ball mount. I'm looking forward to purchasing a utility trailer soon. I think it will tow very nicely using my Curt 6" drop ball hitch.


I bought this on my knowledgeable brother's advice - he gave me the exact order number and link to buy from etrailer! I had it installed locally, without complications. I use my truck mostly to haul my horse or my friend's two donkeys in my 14-foot stock trailer. I have no complaints, the hitch does what it's supposed to do.

Wise brother you have there! I am so glad this was the perfect fit for you. Let us know if you need any other items.


Easy install, everything included, and great instructional video. Worked out great for my RAV4.


Perfect height for my boat trailer on 2021 Toyota Rav 4 Adventure with EcoHitch. Quick service and easy ordering.


Works as advertised. Great fit and now my boat is level traveling down the road. Fast turn-a-round. For [xx] shipping and the heavy weight, expected delivery in a week or two. Two days later it was at my doorstep, arriving late evening. Great service. Thank you.


The mount has worked well. It is sized right to pull our small trailer and I also pulled a boat 600 mi with no issues.


Worked perfect for my tool tug application. See attached photo.


The products (ball mount; hitch pin; spring) i received from are Curt branded. For me that means a first class hitch, accessories and great service from had the best total cost for the items I wanted. There C/S was outstanding.

I am pleased with the products for my Curt hitch.....also please with thank you


trailer hitch works great with no flaws in manufacturing welds. Purchased to drop cycle trailer down 4 " off my honda Pilot. Now trailer is level and goes down the road great.



Great Hitch, Curt is a forerunner in trailer hitches.


Just what I needed for an unusual setup on a VW Vanagon. What I like about etrailer is the detailed information provided on the site. The measurements were very helpful in getting the right parts. Thanks

Terry B.


Works great. Just what I needed.


This product has the lowest drop of any bar I could find while still supporting 7500lbs. I needed it because I just bought a big flatbed landscaping trailer, and when I tow it, I do so with a Y-connector and a bike rack. With the 7500lb drawbar that came with the new trailer, there wasn't enough room above the ball hitch to connect or disconnect the trailer to it without removing the bike rack first. This product solves that problem.


The trailer hitch was top notch, very impressed. Unfortunately, the packaging was NOT. The receiver hitch was shipped loose in the box and the flanges that bolt to the frame of the vehicle busted through both ends of the box. The powder coat was scraped off one side due to this. The hitch needed to either be wrapped better or cardboard added to the box ends to keep this from happening.

The electrical receptacle I ordered at the same time was also loose out of the packaging, inside the box bouncing around with the heavy 4" rise ball mount. I was actually surprised that none of the fasteners were lost due the gaping holes in the box or that the electrical connector wasn't damaged, but fortunately, this time everything was okay.

I think this is a great company with great products, it's just very unfortunate that their shipping department doesn't take as much care in the delivery of those products.


We didn't actually use this drop hitch. We were going to use it in the rise orientation, but it was a tad bit too tall as the tail gate hit the trailer hitch. It looks like a quality part, but I don't have any use info for you.


I have been very pleased with this product so far and am extremely pleased with the Customer Service I have received from etrailer. I originally ordered a ball mount with a 8" drop. After receiving it and trying it out I found that I miscalculated and my boat trailer was not sitting level. I contacted etrailer and received an email with a UPS prepaid shipping label the next day. The whole thing could not have been easier on my end. That is how it should be done. Thanks to the etrailer team.



I just want to say. The trailer receiver I ordered was the best. The shipping deliver was fast. I called by phone to get just what I wanted. Do not trust the email pictures with what you just ordered. When I saw them I tried to cancel the order. It did not look right. When I received my order it was more than prefect.
My suggestion to all of you, explain in full detail what you need and they will ship the right hitch.


Great product. Fast service. Thanks.


The products bought were exactly what I expected with regards to quality. But what I appreciated most was the short amount of time it took to receive the items - very quick turn around from placing the order to receiving all of the items. I had emailed etrailer a couple of times, once to get the tracking number and another just to acknowledge receiving it and both times customer service replied right away - so kudos to George J and the customer service team.


Fits perfectly in the rise position on our ‘84 Dodge B250 Ram van that has a class III Draw-Tite hitch. There is about 1 1/2” clearance between the vertical brace on the front of the ball mount, and the vehicle bumper. Be sure to watch the product video. It gives you all of the measurements you need to see if it will fit your vehicle.


nice hitch , just what i needed


I received my order very quick and all items are just as advertised. I will defantly order from e-trailer again. Prices are ok too. I am impressed with the product lines they offer.
I'll be in the market for one or two trailer brake controllers very soon.


Hitch and ball arrived quickly and were of high quality. powder coat finish looked great. Also compliments to the etrailer folks: their followup on the order was fast and professional. Their website is very easy to use and the tracking system for orders uses a pictorial map.
great work etrailer!


The ball mount, ball, hitch pin and light kit are still working well after a year.


Works great, and the low profile keeps it out of the way. The adaptor cable made it plug and play for my 2021 Nissan Frontier.


What is there to say about a trailer ball and ball mount? Many miles on it and the trailer hasn't fallen off. Never had any problems with any Curt product.


Product is straightforward and is solidly built. Works great as an easy solution for anti sway if you use several different hitches.

  • Installing Two Anti-Sway Bars On A Standard Ball Mount.
    For your Reese Friction Sway Control Kit - Economy - by Draw-Tite, Reese and Hidden Hitch, # 83660, you can use a ball mount in the rise or drop position without any trouble. It sounds like you are using a 4 inch rise position, like the Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 4" Rise, 6" Drop - 9-1/4" Long - 7,500 lbs, # C45070. To use one of your sway bars, you would need the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts - Class III and IV, # RP26003, but for two you will need the weld on tabs...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Setup for 2020 Toyota RAV4 Adventure Series
    According to Curt, their # C13416 Class III hitch is compatible with all models of the 2020 Toyota RAV4, including the Adventure series. If you'll be towing with your RAV4, you'll need a few other items to complete your setup. For a trailer wiring harness, use # C56434. For a ball mount use # C45070 and # 19260 for a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball or # 63845 for a 2 inch. I've linked you to install videos for the hitch and the trailer wiring harness.

  • Class III Ball Mount With a 4" Rise and 2" Trailer Hitch Ball
    While the ball on the Curt Class III Ball Mount # C45056 can also be used in a rise position it will only give you 2" of rise. Instead you would want the Curt Ball Mount # C45070, a 2" Ball # 40038 and a Pin and Clip # C21500 for a 4" rise. You will want to check the hitch ball to verify the torque spec but it currently is 250ft-lbs as we are not able to install the ball for you at our facility.

  • No Drill Class III Trailer Hitch Fit for 2019 Ford Edge SEL
    According to Draw-Tite, the # 75234 Class III hitch is a fit for all models of the 2019 Ford Edge with the exception of the Titanium model. This is a no-drill installation, but one small stud on the underside of the vehicle above the muffler will need to be cut off using a Dremel tool or die grinder. I've linked you to the installation instructions and an installation video showing the hitch being installed on a 2018 Edge. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll need a trailer wiring...

  • Selecting The Correct Trailer Hitch Ball Mount For a 2020 Honda CR-V
    Honda list the ground clearance of the 2020 Honda CR-V all wheel drive trims at 8.2" and the front wheel drive trims at 7.8". It is really hard to recommend a ball mount rise height without knowing the coupler height for the trailer. It is important to remember when calculating rise or drop this is done based on the measurement to the inside top of the receiver. This should be around 13-1/2" based for an AWD CR-V with the Draw-Tite Receiver # 76128 we installed it on in our shop. I like...

  • How to Correct for Rear-End Sag in 2013 Toyota Tacoma When Trailer is Hitched
    It is normal for a trailer's tongue weight (TW) to cause some sag in the tow vehicle's rear suspension. Ideally the top of a trailer ball will be about 1-inch to 1-1/2-inches higher than the top of the level trailer's coupler before the two are hitched. This provides some compensation for that normal sag and usually allows the hitched trailer to remain level, which is important for good handling. You may simply need to use a ball mount with a bit more rise in it to allow the trailer frame...

  • Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2020 Toyota RAV4 Adventure
    The two hitches available for your 2020 Toyota RAV4, the Curt # C13416 and Draw-Tite # DT82QR are just about identical visually with very similar capacities. They would install in the same manner with similar procedures. Both hitches are pretty much on par with each other quality-wise, but the Curt powder coat typically looks a little better and is a bit more durable over time than that of the Draw-Tite # DT82QR. If I had to choose, I'd go with the Curt model but you could choose either...

  • How to Choose a Ball Mount to Correct for Different Hitch and Trailer Heights
    When the trailer hitch on the vehicle and the coupler on the trailer have different heights you can use a ball mount with the required amount of rise or drop to allow the hitched trailer to remain level. It is important to keep the trailer's frame level when towing for better handling. Since your trailer's coupler is about 4-1/2-inches taller than your hitch receiver you will want to select a ball mount that has about 4-inches of RISE, to bring the hitch ball up to the height of the trailer...

  • Differences Between Available Class III Hitch Options for 2020 Honda Odyssey
    Both hitches would share the same 525 lb tongue weight/3500 lb towing GTW towing capacity, but the similarities would end there. The Curt # C64NR is a concealed design, meaning that the majority of the hitch would be concealed behind the Odyssey's bumper when the hitch is installed with just the receiver and safety chain loops being visible. Because of the concealed design, the bumper cover would need removal to install the hitch and would be reinstalled afterward. The Curt # C13370 is...

  • Recommendation for Getting 4 Inches of Rise from Ball Mount and Hitch Ball
    The closest 2 inch hitch ball we currently have available to what you are looking for is the Draw-Tite 2 Inch Hitch Ball # 19255. This hitch ball features a 3-3/8 inch long shank with a 3/4 inch diameter. It has a corrosion-resistant chrome finish and a weight capacity of 3,500 pounds. We also have high-rise hitch balls, such as the 2 inch # C40033 from Curt.

  • Ball Mount Rise Recommendation for 2010 BMW X5 Towing 18 inch Tall Trailer Coupler
    From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 13-3/4 inches when you install the Draw Tite hitch part # 75600 on your 2010 BMW X5. So you will need a ball mount with about a 4 inch rise. The Curt Ball mount # C45070 would be perfect for that. For a 2 inch ball you would want the part # 63845 or for 2-5/16 inch ball part # 63847. For trailer wiring you then would want the part # 119250KIT which I attached an install video for.

If you'll be towing with your RAV4, you'll need a wiring harness, a ball mount and a trailer ball to complete your towing system. For a wiring harness, you'll need # C56434 which installs according to the video I've linked for you.

    Draw-Tite has been around a lot longer than Curt, but both make a high quality product, you can't go wrong either way. If your CX-5 has a Diesel motor, you'll use the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # DR44FR which is the only fit offered. If you have the gasoline engine, you'll have the choice between the Curt # C13315 or the Draw-Tite # 76138 that you'd looked at. Both hitches are a concealed design, which means that once they're installed, everything but the square receiver tube and...

  • Locating Correct Ball Mount to Connect with Trailer on Mazda CX-5 with Low Ground Clearance
    I do have a solution for you, however there is definitely not enough ground clearance at the hitch connection between your Mazda CX-5 and 6x12 utility trailer. Any slight incline or bump in the road is going to cause issues with your current setup. To add clearance while also ensuring that the trailer itself is level when connected (it's a little hard to tell in the picture but it does appear that the tongue/trailer is nose low), you will need a ball mount with a larger rise such as...

    Hey Greg, so the Curt ball mount part # C45070 does have 6 inches of drop but the ball mount platform like you noticed does angle down instead of go vertical like what you have now. One style isn't necessarily better than the other but the angled style does add some length to the ball mount setup which could be helpful for if you were having turn clearance issues. Some couplers are pretty tall on the front (like old Atwood Actuators) so having the angled ball mount would allow for a bit...

    Once installed, the Draw-Tite Class III # 75234 receiver hitch will slightly limit the areas under the bumper where the hands-free liftgate sensors can 'read' your foot passing under the bumper. The square receiver tube will block access in the middle of the under-bumper area, but the sensors will read just fine off to either side. The hitch will work great on your vehicle, and be pretty inconspicuous as well. Most of the hitch is hidden behind the rear bumper fascia, so the only visible...

    Actually, all of the hitches available for the 2019 Ford Edge, regardless of trim level will have the sensors for the Hands-Free liftgate feature blocked at the middle of the bumper. This is because the receiver tube extends below the bumper and would sit between where you'd sweep your foot and the liftgate sensor. The system uses 3 or 4 sensors (depends on the vehicle) and the sensors will still pick up movement but you'll need to sweep your foot to the left or right of the center of the...
