This did what's the reviews said it would do. No complaints.

Works as described to soften the jostling as you go down the road. It made a noticeable improvement in noise as well as jerking of the truck back and forth. As always, eTrailer.com's service and shipping was outstanding.




by:

The cushioned ball mount looks very strong and will work to cut down the trailer
noise while towing. The 2" ball also looked very strong and well made. Looking
forward to many miles of trouble free towing.

The receiver hitch was exactly what I wanted and ordered. It was delivered promptly with no issues. I'll be back to etrailer when I need trailer parts or accessories. Thanks.

I received my shipment on time and in good condition. The hitch and ball fit with the correct measurements I needed and looks to be built with high quality but I haven’t pulled my trailer with it yet to rate how it works. I hope to do that soon.

Great product...never fail me after first year of use....I recommend!!

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


Looks good but haven’t towed with it yet. Price was a little higher after conversation and shipping but looks like a decent product. My truck is a dodge 3500 with a 6” long arm lift on 37” tires and this 12” looks like it will be perfect for my cargo and utility trailer’s. Other note it was a little loose in my 2” hitch so I added a receiver clamp to stop rattle.

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


Bought the Convert-A-Ball Mount because I pull an Off Grid trailer for off road camping. I'm very impressed with how this hitch cushions the push and pull on the receiver, making it a very quite ride while pulling my trailer in rough rocky road conditions, with a lot less stress on the drive train too.

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


After having trouble finding the right drop height and weight rating receiver for my new Ford Expedition Max, I called etrailer and Ashley was awesome in helping me as I needed something quickly. I've just travelled 1200 miles interstate with the "Convert-A-Ball" unit and I'm thrilled with it. The mount cushions the movement and had zero jolts or tugging with the trailer. Great product so far and at this stage I wouldn't use anything else!


Comments
This has been truly amazing and I wouldn’t use anything else towing these days. I’ve recommended the mount to a lot of people who tow who have never heard of it or seen it before. Great job!

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


Was hoping this would help with shock reduction. It doesn't. Has to fit loosely into hitch to function so it slams side to side and front to back. Would not recommend. Very disappointed in this purchase. Trailers service is exceptional. Easy to order. Arrived quickly, well packed.


Comments
To help reduce the play in your set up, I recommend part # RM-061
Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches
$29.95
. This anti rattle device once installed will help to stabilize what you have installed in your hitch.

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


We purchased these 6 months ahead of the arrival of our new trailer with 2 Max Air fans. At the time, no one had the transparent/smoke ones in stock, so we wanted to get ahead of supply chain issues. etrailer had them, and we received them quickly.

Had the trailer dealer install them and two others on the new trailer, so they could do any caulk work if needed. These are fantastic, in that you almost can't tell they are on the fan. A bit of tint, but otherwise crystal clear, and we never worry about leaving the vent covers open while travelling, or in inclement weather. etrailer is our go to for as many of our RV supplies as we can get from them, instead of the "A" company. Great customer service, good prices, and speedy shipping.

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


With our trailer weighing in at only 1,500 lbs, this drop hitch is seriously overkill. It functions as advertised and is well made. However, when towing our light trailer it clunks vertically each time we go over a bump in the road or start and stop. The mount on the drop hitch is a little small for our receiver.




by:

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


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

Replaceing one that I have had for 22 years. The shock absorbing feature is great for heavy trailers without brakes because it will absorb the initial shock of a trailer in a quick stop.




by:

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


This device is a great idea. I would highly recommend it for towing with smaller uni-body utility vehicles and small trucks because of their smaller drive components, but any vehicle will benefit. This is really nice with utility trailers that tend to bounce over potholes. I've used this product with a Jeep Wrangler and CJ7, Toyota RAV 4, Sienna and 4Runner as well as a Chevy Suburban.

  • What Size is the Hitch Pin Hole of the Convert-a-Ball part # AMSC6HD
    The hitch pin hole diameter of the Convert-a-Ball part # AMSC6HD that you referenced is 5/8 inch which is the standard size for ball mounts like this that fit 2 inch hitches.

  • 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...

  • Version of Convert a Ball Cushioned Ball Mount with 6 inch Drop That Fits 2.5 inch Hitch
    Yes, the # AMSC6HD could be used with a hitch reducer sleeve like you mentioned but since these types of adapters can cause a bit of movement your best option would be the version of this ball mount that is designed to fit 2-1/2 inch hitches directly part # AMSCV-6. This has the same 6 inch drop but has a higher 18,000 lb towing capacity.

  • 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: #...

  • How to Match Different Heights of Hitch Ball and Trailer Coupler for Safe Level Towing
    Thank you for providing a photo of your trailer coupler. Trailers should always be level when hitched. If a trailer is out of level when towed it will tend to have more sway. I notice you have weight distribution (WD) lift brackets on your trailer frame. If you are using a WD system you can get a new shank that has enough height drop to let your trailer be level when hitched. Based on your 6-inch height difference between the hitch ball and coupler, you can use a WD shank with 5-6 inches...

  • How Do You Orient Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount AMSC6HD To Be Used In Rise Position?
    You are correct. To get the 4-3/4" rise you need with the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 4-3/4" Rise, 6" Drop - 14,000 lbs # AMSC6HD you were looking at you will insert the ball mount so the portion that the hitch ball installs into will be point up. You will need a hitch ball with a 1-1/4" diameter shank so I recommend the 2" # A-90 or 2-5/16" # 19286. I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Can Hitch Ball Bushing F-2 Be Used With Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount AMSC6HD
    Yes, you can absolutely use the hitch ball bushing and ball mount together without any issues at all: - Hitch Ball Bushing - 1-1/4" to 1" # F-2 - Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # AMSC6HD The slight gap with the small difference in height isn't going to be problematic in regards to tightening the hitch ball in the ball mount. You will still be able to fully tighten the hitch ball on the Convert-A-Ball ball mount without issue and retain the full capacity of a hitch ball like...

  • Can Hitch Stabilizer be Used With Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount For 2" Hitch
    Good question, and you can definitely still use a hitch stabilizer with the cushioned Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # AMSC6HD. Even with a stabilizer there is still going to be some play in the hitch, so combining it with the cushioning of the Convert-A-Ball is going to be the best way overall to reduce any bounce or rattling, and I recommend going with the Brophy Stabilizer Clamp # RSCP. You can secure the ball mount to your hitch with Hitch Lock # e98880 and for a hitch ball...

  • Availability of a Ball Mount that Provides a 6 Inch Rise
    The Draw-Tite Ball Mounts, item # 4283, does not come in a 6 inch rise configuration. At this time we do not have a ball mount with a 6 inch rise available. We do offer two ball mounts with a bit higher rise. The Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount for 2 inch Hitches, item # AMSC6HD, has a 6-1/2 inch rise, and the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount, item # AMSC8, has a 6-3/4 inch rise.
