My usage of your hitch is a bit unusual, I think. I pull a two ton roller with my Ram and I've used your cushioned hitch to smooth out the process. The roller Lunette just dropped over a 2" ball and then banged and jerked on the ball neck. Check out the photos for my adaptation.. I can flip it over and use the 2" ball! Have enclosed some photos. The cushion is holding up very well and it takes a beating!! Thanks

We have a Pink Tractor (google Mom's Pink Tractor) that we pull to events, mainly in Ks, Ok, Mo, and Ne. We have around 35 events a year we take the tractor to to promote breast cancer awareness. The other day my wife and I were leaving for an event, i had let a friend borrow the hitch to see how he liked it. In less then a mile from the house my wife started complaining about the trailer jerking. That is coming from a lady that really was upset when I paid that much for a hitch. She told me to stop and buy one. (a long and expensive trip, we had to stop at a casino so she could rest her neck) I could write a review with a lot of trailer talk, but, this story tells the story.

Bought this for my wife’s truck after owning one myself and is worth it! Takes the jar and shock out of pulling trailers( we mainly pull hay wagons and farm equipment). Highly recommend these cushioned hitches and fast service!

She loves the hitch. If someone borrows it she makes sure she gets it back! I own several now for several trucks.

AFTER A YEAR OF FREQUENT SALT WATER BOAT LAUNCHES I CAN SAY THIS ITEM IS HOLDING UP FAIRLY WELL. I HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO RINSE IT OFF AND LUBRICATE IT ALMOST EVERY TIME I DO LAUNCH MY BOAT IN SALT WATER. IT STILL FUNCTION AS STATED AND I HOPE TO GET ANOTHER YEAR OF USE FROM IT.

2007 Toyota Tundra 5.7L, 7X14 Parker flatbed tandem axle utility trailer 7700 lb capacity. I've only used it once since purchasing it, but compared to my previous non-cushioned ball mount it does an excellent job cushioning the load and keeps the trailer from banging the mount in the box and shaking the truck upon braking and acceleration. Very nice when hauling 2+ tons of cargo. Fast shipping from etrailer too.

I give this five stars for its functionality, quite stops and same for take off. However the shaft could be an inch or two longer for my FX 35. I cannot turn 180 degrees to use higher height without my trailer’s receiver hitting/rubbing the bumper. I would prefer height as trailer stand bottoms out on aprons. I could get an extension but that would defeat purpose of the shock absorber. My advice to potential buyers is to measure the distance from pin to ball to make sure there is enough clearance between ball the bumper. Wouldn’t be surprised if it just an issue with this vehicle model.


Comments
Christopher,Thank you for your review. The best option for your clearance issue is a longer ball mount. Hitch extenders reduce your tongue weight by 50 percent. I am not sure how much rise you need to be level with your trailer. The convert-a-ball, ball mount part # AMSC8

This hitch replaced a standard non cushioned hitch. which was great - when I only had a jetski to pull. as I've gotten older, my toys have gotten bigger. The cushioned hitch reduces the shockload from start / stop with a heavier trailer attached. now, pulling a trailer is less of a head (and neck) ache. we'll have to see how well the elastomers hold up - but for now, I would only recommend this type of hitch to my friends and family.

this is the second cushioned ball mount I have purchased. I haul a specialty trailer daily for work, stop & go, rough terrain first ball mount I used was just a cheap hollow one witch was turning the pin hole on the truck into an oval. Bought a cushioned ball mount and it lasted 4-6years of towing 3-5days/week before one of the pins holding the cushion in finally corroded in half. I'm sure the pin could have been replaced with some work to compress the rubber again but for the price and longevity of the product I just ordered new and keep on going.

Thanks for the feedback Timb. You are correct the Gen-Y Ball mounts are significantly more expensive than this one. They do offer a torsion style shock absorbing cushion to the ball mount, but do also offer many additional features when compared to this ball mount from Convert-A-Ball.

Super happy with this cushion ball mount- I pull loaded grain wagons with my truck and this hitch really takes the shock out of the starts and stops. eTrailer has always provided easy ordering, quick shipping and quality packaging, along with the best pricing available. Thanks, I will be back.

Does take the sharp shock out of take off and braking. I am using this ball mount on a surge brake system and seems to work fine. A little expensive but worth it in my opinion for spec weights it can handle and additional feature of shock control. I purchased the 12K lb. Curt ball #40038 to go on mount and they are great match for pulling 6,500 lb. boat and trailer. I have more piece of mind than my previous 5K lb. spec ball and mount.

well over the hitch is very well made. The hitch itself fit great all holes lined up fine.The only problem the flat round washers were to small for the bolts supplied and you should supply washers for the bracket that mounts under the bumper because the holes on the hitch are pretty big , its possible for the lock washer to seat crooked. A trip to the hardware store fixed the issues. Overall were very happy with the hitch.

Ask the Experts about this Convert-A-Ball Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Can the Bushing Inside the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mounts Be Replaced
    The bushing inside the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mounts like part # AMSC2 is not replaceable. Therefore, if the bushing is worn or damaged the entire ball mount will need to be replaced unfortunately.

  • Will Anti-Rattle Device Compromise Shock Absorption of Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2 Inch Hitches
    I can definitely see why you might think that, but an anti-rattle device is not going to compromise the shock absorption of the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # AMSC2. The polyurethane interior of the ball mount will continue to be effective for its intended purpose and reduce vibration, but without an anti-rattle device, the play inside a larger OEM hitch will continue. So with that in mind I definitely recommend the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches # RM-061...

Convert a Ball is the brand that makes the ball mount # AMSC2 which is cushioned.

    Cushioned ball mounts like the Convert-A-Ball # AMSC2 are rated for trailer weights up to 10,000-lbs but they will still provide a benefit when used with lighter and smaller utility trailers like your 2000-lb-er. These use a polyurethane insert that acts like a spring to reduce shock, bounce and vibration.

    You can use the cushioned ball mount # AMSC2 with a surge brake coupler. But it sounds like the coupler may need to be surfaced. You should get relatively smooth operation from it. To test it you can uncouple from the tow vehicle and try to move the actuator in and out. If you can do it by hand then there is definitely something wrong, likely the shock. If you can move it using only a lever of some sort (like a 2x4) but it does not slide back on its own or does so very quickly then that...

  • Trailer Hitch Extension Needed to Allow Tailgate to be Lowered with Trailer Attached to Vehicle
    I would not recommend any type of extension with your towing setup.
