I have the 10" drop/8" rise version of this drawbar. My experience with it over the past year and about 8,000 miles of flat-towing my 5000# has overall been good. I use a Sprinter 3500 Class B motorhome as my tow vehicle, so I'm towing at just about the maximal weight rating for towing. I like that it has some "cushion" for the back and forth one experiences with flat-towing. However, it does have some looseness of the hitch pin holding this draw bar in the hitch platform, and there is still some rattling back and forth as this looseness is taken-up before the rubber cushion is engaged to soften the jostling. I use a floor-mounted inertial tow-braking device in my Jeep, so there's always some lag in when the brakes will engage. I think I have less rattling with another standard draw bar when I use a hitch tightener that clamps the tow bar in the hitch platform; but although that system eliminates the rattle, using that clamp would not allow the cushioning to work. Overall, this isn't perfect, but it does do what it claims to do. The one improvement I'd make would be to figure a way to firmly attach the tow-vehicle end of this tow bar in the hitch platform while still allowing the cushioning to function. 846247

Terrific drop hitch for a lifted truck. I use the 12" drop, my son uses the 10" drop. Great price and very well built. The thick gusset on the backbone helps it stand up to a year of continuous use with a lifted truck. 576758

Bought a new tow vehicle and needed a longer drop down shank for my travel trailer. No one locally had this size in stock and all wanted to charge an arm & leg to "special order" it for me. I politely turned them down and came here to etrailer.com to order it myself. Website was extremely easy to navigate to find the one I needed, including providing me with detailed examples of how to figure out which length I needed. Ordered this item and the 2.5" - 2" adaptor with 3 day shipping, and both arrived in 2 days! Tested them out to make sure they fit my hitch (they did) and then over to make sure they would leave my trailer level for towing (it is). Very pleased with etrailer.com and am already looking at items on here to start customizing my new truck with. Thanks! 550416

From opening the box, the product came as I had expected. However, this is a very sturdy hitch. I was impressed to see the tall drop with the capability of carrying 5k plus. I needed it in two days and you guys shipped it quick fast and in a hurry. Great product and excellent customer service. 549352

Exactly what I needed. Love the way it set my trailer back away from my lifted such, so now I never have to worry about the lift gate hitting and jamming against the "v" front of my trailer again. The dampening is nice too, but will take a little getting used to. 510604

My husband approves of the strength, the solid welding on the gusset and is expecting the 10" drop to level the trailer out on our 1000+ mile trip hauling a tractor and all the implements. Additionally, he's expecting the cushioned feature to smooth out some of the jerking. We'll check back when we reach our destination and let you know if all expectations are met. 442401

I received this yesterday and already put it to good use. I live in the country where rough and snakey dirt roads are common. This hitch allows for tighter turning with its extension outwards (not straight up and down) which is the main reason why I bought it. The construction is very sturdy and the cushion inside made the bumpy roads much more manageable. I would recommend this drop hitch. 424265

Hitch has operated perfectly for the past year. I like the urethane shock absorber that cushions the forward movement of the trailer. It was used on a 24' enclosed cargo pulled by an F350 with 8" of lift. 417507

  • What Size Hitch Ball Does the Cushioned Ball Mount for 2 Inch Hitches # AMSC10 Use
    The Cushioned Ball Mount for 2 inch Hitches with 8-3/4 Inch Rise or 10 Inch Drop, # AMSC10, uses a hitch ball with a shank diameter of 1 inch. For a 2 inch hitch ball you will need part # 63845 and for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball you will need # 19260. Since the Cushioned Ball Mount, # AMSC10, has a ball hole diameter of 1 inch, a hitch ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank will not work.

  • What is the Rise of Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount # AMSC10
    Because there isn't an 8-3/4 inch rise category for ball mounts the Convert-A-Ball mount # AMSC10 is lumped into the 9 inch rise category. The actual rise is 8-3/4 inches. In the grand scheme of things that 1/4 inch difference isn't going to cause you any problems and the trailer will be more level than most other setups I have seen. If exactly 9 inches is required your best option is adjustable ball mount # FA42-00-2800 which has a maximum rise of 9 inches. I have linked a video review...

  • Recommendation to Help Back and Forth Movement in Trailer Hitch While Towing
    To help alleviate the back and forth chucking you are experiencing with your 2 inch receiver there are a couple of things I recommend doing. First is to use a cushioned ball mount, the Convert-A-Ball, which is designed to reduce this type of movement and additional road shock with its polyurethane cushioning interior; if you take a look at the accompanying diagram it displays the cushioned inside of the ball mount. I will list the different rise and drop available for this ball mount below....

Using this setup will give you around 14" of distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball. The other option, which would be a more economical choice if you...

  • Best Fixed Ball Mount Option for Motorhome and Tow Dolly Compatibility with 10-11 Inch Drop
    The Draw-Tite Ball Mount - 9-3/4" Rise, 11" Drop - 9" Long - 3,500 to 5,000 lbs # 80248 will bring your hitch height to 14 or 15 inches to match your tow dolly. The ball mount is rated for up to 5,000 lbs n the drop position so you simply need to use a hitch ball rated for 3,750 lbs or more. I recommend the 2 inch ball # 63845 or the 2-5/16 inch ball # 63847 depending on which matches your coupler. Both are rated for 7,500 lbs so they will work well. The Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount...

It is not suitable for use with a hitch-mount tow dolly like the Roadmaster # RM-2000-1, if that is what you have.
