We use this to pull our 20' cargo trailer. We made 7 trips from northern Arizona to western Kansas and it is holding up great.

Great piece of hardware. Used it last summer towing about 7500 pounds. I was not worried using this hitch.

I like the “no bang and jerk “ you have with solid hitches-should be easier on the pin and hole

Hauled 12 loads~6 yards ea with bumper pull gravel trailer-worked great-no noticeable wear

These cushioned ball mounts work perfectly. I had a 2" drop version that I used for a couple years. Purchased this 4" drop due to trailer height adjustment.

This unit continues to work perfectly. It connects our car hauler trailer to our motorhome and gets about 10,000 miles a year of usage

Fantastic! I've used these before with lighter truck/trailer combos, but the difference with a heavier truck and trailer is even more amazing compared to a non-cushioned ball mount.

I just received my ball mount receiver and ball. Great looking product. I'm excited to see how the cushion works. Torqueing the ball to 450ft lbs. was fun!!!

This was my second order from Etrailer. I am very pleased with the quality of this product it appears to be built very well. etrailer came through once again and got my order to me very quickly. Once I tow my 10000lb car hauler I will add to the review.

Review from a similar Cushioned Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I'm running an F350 King Ranch 4x4 with all terrain tires mounted on the factory wheels. The 10" drop Convert-a-ball mount works perfectly with the Curt 2 5/16 rocker ball. I'm also running the large rear stone guards to protect the 5th wheel and boat from stone damage. That stone guard system mounts to the ball mount and requires a minimum distance of 10 1/2" from the center of the ball hole to the center of the lock pin hole. This ball mount I believe is 11.5" and works perfectly. I am very pleased with this product with it's 8k rating.

Review from a similar Cushioned Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I like it. I have a few thousand miles on it by now pulling a 2015 MINI on a uhaul auto transport trailer with a 2020 Tacoma and I think it helps keep a smooth ride. I’ve pulled with it from Phoenix to Seattle and back, and recently from Phoenix to Lewes Delaware. Before my first trip with the hitch I got into a lengthy debate over whether or not I had wasted my money on the entire concept of this hitch or not. The first time I pulled an empty trailer with it, I thought maybe I had fallen for a slick pitch because it wasn’t all too different than any other trip with a trailer bouncing around behind me. I pulled the trailer around my neighborhood on streets that I knew for a few laps around the block, then switched hitches back to my old solid one and did the same route and there was indeed a difference with this hitch. It won’t make the bumps and tugs disappear but it will noticeably mute them. Along all of my tows there have been stretches of road where I have thought to myself I’m glad I have this hitch and wonder how much worse the ride would have been without it. The trailer I use has surge braking and there was a concern that the horizontal movement of the hitch could trigger the brake but I haven’t noticed that to be an issue. I recommend the product but if you don’t buy this hitch, use etrailer for whatever you do buy. THE BEST service, fast shipping, great communication, I appreciate this site so much. Every internet shopping trip starts at etrailer, if they sell what I need I’ll buy it here. I want them to stay around for as long as possible, they remind me of what service and support from a business is supposed be and I’m happy to do what I can to keep them around. I’m glad I found etrailer, thanks!

Review from a similar Cushioned Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


The cotter pin was bent. It didn’t seem to be fitting good so I tried to straighten it which broke the tip off, rendering it useless. Looking back at the pictures on your website for the product it is apparently supposed to be bent to help it fit better in the confined space. Oh well, live and learn...

Review from a similar Cushioned Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This is a ball hitch mount that is not a standard unit, problem I had I purchased a new p/u going from a 2500 series which stood higher to a 1500 series standing lower by 4" also lowering 3 1/2" towing a 4800 pound boat as we all know, needing to tow level, that wasn't going to happen, this ball mount did the trick, fits D.O.T. standards also more than what i needed for weight requirements


Comments
Ball mount achieved the goal for my height requirements, what I didnt explain the piston action in the ball mount, it does cushion the back and fourth while towing considerably if and when I will buy one with it, also you got it to me in two days great device l

Review from a similar Cushioned Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


We bought this to tow our 3,000 lbs. boat with our Subaru Ascent with a 5,000 lbs. towing capacity. With the OEM ball mount, we could really feel every jolt and jiggle from hard stops, going over bumps in the road, and trailering down dirt roads. However, the dual cushion ball has really improved our trailing experience. Once we get up to speed, we hardly notice we are towing our boat. It's also great because some of the lakes we visit are down dirt roads, and the cushion makes this a much more pleasant experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone towing a boat or larger trailer with a SUV as it maintains that comfortable ride and the jostling of the trailer is much less noticeable.

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.

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

  • Is it Okay to Use Cushioned Ball Mount with More Capacity than Needed
    It really doesn't hurt to have a ball mount with more capacity than needed. If anything it's just added insurance that the ball mount wouldn't fail. For 14k capacity cushioned ball mounts we have the part # AMSC2HD which has a 2 inch drop, part # AMSC4HD which has a 4 inch drop and part # AMSC6HD which has a 6 inch drop.

  • How to Pick Out Ball Mount for 2014 Toyota Sienna Towing Boat Trailer
    I wasn't able to find the coupler height of the trailer you are interested in so your best option would be to contact who you are buying it from and have them measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler lip with the trailer level. When we installed the Draw Tite # 76112 on a 2014 Toyota Sienna like yours we found that it measured 12 inches from the ground to the top of the hitch opening. If you compare that 12 inch figure to the coupler height you get for your trailer you'll be...

  • Will a Cushioned Ball Mount Work with Surge Trailer Brakes
    The cushion inside of the Convert-A-Ball cushioned ball mount # AMSC4 would have only a slight affect on the surge coupler on your trailer. You may not even notice it. The cushion is very dense and the more pressure that is put on it the firmer it gets. It would take more force to compress that cushion than to actuate the surge coupler. Cushioned ball mount # AMSC4 has a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop but there are other options if you need a different rise or drop to tow the trailer level: #...

  • Recommended Cushioned Ball Mount That is 10 Long and 4 Of Drop
    We do have a cushioned ball mount with 4" of drop and 10 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole with part # AMSC4HD. I have attached a very helpful video for your reference. This ball mount is rated at 14,000 lbs and has a shock absorbing center to help with bouncing and chucking. For a 2-5/16" hitch ball you can use part # 19286 with the ball mount.

  • Measuring for a Ball Mount with the Right Rise or Drop for a 2008 Chrysler Aspen
    Ideally you would measure for the amount of drop needed in a ball mount with the 2008 Chrysler Aspen loaded because it will be closer to the actual towing situation. Since the vehicle is sagging with gear loaded in it, it is going to sag even more then the trailer is coupled because of the tongue weight of the trailer. What I recommend is weight distribution so that the vehicle does not sag and will provide you will better braking, steering, and visibility. To choose a weight distribution...

  • Availability of Ball Mount with 4 inch Drop, 2-3/4 inch Rise and 10 inch Length
    We have the Convert-a-ball Ball Mount part # AMSC4HD which has a drop of 4 inch, a rise of 2-3/4 inch and an overall length of 10 inches from hitch pin hole to ball mount hole center. If you wanted something more budget priced that is instead 9 inches long we have the # 2753.

  • Minimum Rise for Convert-A-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount CAB-UM
    The minimum rise for adjustable ball mount # CAB-UM is approximately 2-1/2 inches. But unless you tow multiple trailers and need the adjustability of this ball mount I recommend a fixed ball mount with between 2 and 3 inches of rise. Covert-A-Ball has # AMSC4HD or # AMSC4, both with a 2-3/4 inch rise, if you want a cushioned ball mount. If the ball mount does not have to be cushioned we have # C45155 which comes with a 2 inch ball installed and with a 2-1/4 inch rise. The ball is not...

  • 14k Capacity Ball Mount Options
    The ball mount part # AMSC4HD has a 14k capacity and is designed to fit a 2 inch hitch. This ball mount has a 2-3/4" Rise/ 4" Drop. For a hitch ball you would want the part # 63836 as it has a 14k capacity as well and is a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. Or for an adjustable ball mount that can do various rises/drops you would want the part # AM3298. I attached a help article on how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount as well.

  • Which Provides More Cushioning from Ball Mount Convert-A-Ball Vs Curt Rebellion XD
    The Convert a Ball ball mounts like the # AMSC4HD and the Curt Rebellion XD # part # C45949-2516 offer cushioning in a similar way (front to back cushioning) but the Curt Rebellion is going to offer superior cushioning to the Convert a Ball. The reason I say this is because most of the time your ball mount would not be free to move enough for the cushioning to be effective since the tongue weight of the trailer on the ball mount prevents movement where it would be needed. With the Rebellion...
