I was very pleased with etralier for filling my order promptly. I was not pleased with usps.When the hitch arrived the box had been damaged. It was empty. I contacted etrailer about the problem. They were very helpful and offered me a refund or replacement. I chose the replacement. It was shipped promptly in good shape.It was a pleasure doing business with etrailer. Jon


Excellent product. I have been using the Convert-A-Ball shock absorbing mounted hitch for 30 yrs on 3 1500 Chevy's and now a F250. The 2 1/2" hitch is massive and I expect the same great performance from it as all my others.


Partial order. What I got was damaged and incomplete. The rest of the brake parts will be a few more days now….. will definitely not recommend


Seem Heavyduty


This ball mount fits very smoothly, with virtually no "slop" when inserting into the truck's receiver. Don't know if this is the receiver or the ball mount that is made with good fit tubing, or both. The mount is clearly marked as to it's capacity. The "cushioning" effect of the mount is very subjective, but I have towed our trailer with load distributing that jerks all over the place. Some surging just cannot be avoided, but on the first trial run of about 15 miles the surging seemed reduced. On a side note, I have gone to this load bearing mount as opposed to the usual weight distributing system simply to avoid all the heavy hardware. I now have a F-350 long bed crew cab which very adequately tows with load bearing and it handles better than any tow vehicle-trailer combo I have ever owned. By the way, our travel trailer has a gross weight of 13,500 lbs and the tongue weight is 1350 lbs. The whole vehicle combo sits absolutely level. The rear suspension on the truck drops under the hitch weight so that the overload springs "just" pick up some load. The very long wheel base of my truck makes sway and sag a non-issue. I'm happy!


The hitch is one I owned prior to this one love the product. Shipping was another story. The package arrived ripped to shreds and the product feel out of the destroyed box onto my concrete porch no damage to the hitch chipped the porch.


Glad it finally made it.


It’s a good hitch and I like the idea of not jarring so it doesn’t elongate the hitch pin holes.


Ordered this cushioned ball mount because the new truck has a 2.5” receiver and I didn’t really like the idea of using a reducer. Thought the cushion would be great for towing farm implements and wagons based on some of the other reviews for this product. Haven’t had a chance to use it yet but it seems very substantial yet I was surprised at how light weight it was considering the 18,000 lb tow rating. etrailer seems to have all the coolest stuff at the best prices.



Works great! It definitely cushions the ride. Works so well I’m considering getting the convert-a-ball cushioned gooseneck for the new trailer.


I just received the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitches - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 18,000 lbs - AMSCV-2

I also received the 2" ball mount for my old truck...
They look to be well made...
The hole to put a ball or drawbar pin is 1 1/4 " .....So I will be making a Bushing to bring it down to 1"...This will be better for my needs...

I would recommend part # F-2 to reduce your 1-1/4 diameter ball hole to a 1 diameter hole.


Awesome product! Yes the poly "cushions" work and make a huge difference. I pull a 10,000lb +/- equipment trailer on a 2 5/16 ball. Highly recommended for heavy trailers in traffic. Needless to say etrailer has the best price and makes on-line ordering a breeze. Shipped fast and well packaged.



Still performing just like new. When I pull with other non cushion ball mounts it’s nightday difference.


should include the pin to attach with the hitch.


My first order resulted in an empty box being delivered. My reorder came close to the same result. That particular hitch needs to be shipped in a more secure box.


Love it!

Feel alot less jarring
across dips and uneven road surfaces when towing my camper with the rubber cushion in the hitch.



Still works well. Worth the purchase. If you are looking for a way to feel less jarring when start stop this product is worth a try.


Works great good product.


Nice product, fits well. Works way better that using the 2" version and the adapter sleeve in my f450. Took all the slop out and my hitch mounted mud flaps don't wiggle around anymore. The only thing I don't like is there in not a convert-a-ball type system for this size. Received prompt service from etrailer. Thank you.


I can't tell if the cushioned part makes a difference or not towing our 6-7k lb horse trailer, but the good thing is it fits in my 2007 Silverado's receiver snugly without using a clunky, noisy adapter. This thing is super solid and should last a lifetime if it doesn't get stolen.


Good quality. Shipped in 3 days. Fits well into the 2 1/2” receiver on my 2013 Chevy 2500 pickup. No need for the adapter anymore. Only thing I don’t particularly care for is the large 1 1/4” hitch hole.


Works as it should. Cushions the movement of my Jeep that is being flat towed when I stop. It also dampens the sound that I don't even hear it in the cab. Shoot, it's so good that someone else helped themselves to my first one (read: stole) so I bought a second one.


Purchased this hitch to haul a 7x14 trailer full of goose decoys to Canada. Could not believe how nice to have no banging and jarring around on rough country roads. There were times you wouldn't have believed the trailer was behind us. Great product!!
I would not hesitate to recommend to any one of my friends.


Easy HaulingWaited till I had put some miles on this hitch before doing a review as I was unsure of how well the cushioned hitch would perform, now done over 2000 miles towing 29ft cargo trailer with various weights and found that it performs very well under all conditions damps out most vibrations from the road and trailer and feels a lot better on the back of the truck than a standard solid hitch, especially at the weights and sizes a class v hauls would recommend this for anyone hauling larger size and weight tag trailers


This hitch works great, have pulled up to capacity, up to a dozen trailers a day, have small & large ball attached, easy to flip over to match trailer, cushion takes some of the roughness out of a stop, recommend it.


I needed a 2.5 inch with very little drop for my 2017 F250 SD and a target 23.5 inch to top of ball for my trailer. Works great and has a good fit up with little movement of part in reciever. Appears well built and a lifetime part.


We really like these hitches for a little cushion pulling farm equipment. No it's not like a DMI hitch which we also have where you can swing or pull out to assist with hook-up.


Not an abundance of 2 1/2" ball mounts out there in any size much less the exact one I needed. This is it! Also has the cushion poly material at the pin area. This has greatly reduced the harshness and noise with metal to metal contact. This is a heavy duty piece of hardware. Rated at 18,000lbs...that ought to be enough.

See what our Experts say about this Convert-A-Ball Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Is Sag Caused by Trailer Tongue Weight Considered When Choosing Ball Mount w/the Right Rise or Drop
    At most the tongue weight of a trailer would cause about 1/2 inch to 1 inch of sag at the ball mount (give or take a little and different for every vehicle). But on a 2016 Ford F-250 the suspension is potentially beefy enough to limit the sag to even less than that. The trailer can be off of level one way or the other (high or low) by as much as 1 inch and still be considered level. For cushioned ball mounts that fit a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver we have the following options: #...

  • Would Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitches # AMSCV-2 Be Effective Towing 7k to 10k Trailer
    Yes, the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitches # AMSCV-2 that you referenced would work great for your truck and the amount of weight you plan to tow. The forward to back cushioning of the ball mount does not require a minimum amount of trailer weight to be effective. The weights you listed would work just fine with it.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F-350 with Factory 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    The OEM Ford 2-1/2 inch receiver has more rounded edges. Many 2-1/2 inch accessories, in this case ball mounts, have more squared off corners. This difference causes the squared off accessories not to fit. In some cases, some of the powder coating can be removed from the shank on the accessory as long as none of the metal is ground off. That could work on a ball mount like # 45123 since it has more rounded corners than something like # RP45323. If you use an accessory that has more rounded...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a Ford F450 with a 2-1/2 inch Hitch Opening
    There are three ball mounts we offer that will work for the 2-1/2 inch hitch on your Ford F450 with a 2-1/2 inch opening. The problem that many encounter is that the Ford 2-1/2 inch hitches are very tight with round corners and many ball mounts like the Reese Titan Ball Mount # RP45323 that you referenced will not fit without modification. The ball mounts we have found to work on the Ford 2-1/2 hitches are the Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSCV-2, the Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSCV-4, and the...

This ball mount is designed to work on 2-1/2 inch hitches like what you have on your 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD and has an 18k capacity which is more than enough for your sport boat and trailer that weigh a total of 12k.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation Rated for 14,000 Pounds Gross Trailer Weight on a Ford F-450
    To determine the receiver size you have, I have included a link to an FAQ that will help. The Reese 2-1/2 inch Titan ball mounts like # RP45323 or the one found in # EBMK25318, tend not to fit the factory 2-1/2 inch receivers on Ford Super Duty trucks. You will need to use one of the Convert-A-Ball ball mounts. We have # AMSCV-6 with a 6 inch drop or 4-3/4 inch rise. We also have # AMSCV-4 with a 4 inch drop or 2-3/4 inch rise.

  • Does The Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount AMSCV-2 Move Around In The Hitch
    The Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitches part # AMSCV-2 does not move back and forth in the receiver enough to wear the inside of the receiver. The polyurethane interior of the ball mount does help to absorb vibration so it reduces the amount of slamming and banging that occurs especially when stopping. You will not need to worry about it wearing the inside of your receiver. If you need a 2" hitch ball part # A-90 will work well for you. You can use part # 19286 for a 2-5/16" ball.

  • Availability of a Trailer Hitch Ball with a 1-1/4 Inch Shank and a 1-7/8 Inch Diameter
    The only 1-7/8 inch ball that we carry with a 1-1/4 inch shank is # C48810, but this is used for a pintle hitch combo hitch. What you can do is use a bushing like # F-2 to go from a 1-1/4 inch ball hole to a 1 inch. You could then use a ball like # 19260.

  • Ball Mount with 2-1/2 Inch Shank to Fit the Factory 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch on a 2009 Ford F-350
    The Reese Titan accessories used to have more squared edges and the Ford Super Duty 2-1/2 inch receiver requires something with more rounded edges like # AMSCV-2. It still may be a tight fit and in those cases, usually if you remove some of the powder coat from the ball mount shank (not any of the metal) you can get those snug accessories to fit properly. But we have had confirmation from a customer with a 2011 Ford Super Duty that it does fit his 2-1/2 inch receiver.

  • Is There a Curt RockerBall Anti-Rattle Towing Kit with 2" Ball and 3" Drop
    It sounds like you are looking at the Curt RockerBall Anti-Rattle Towing Kits but wanting one with a 2" hitch ball and 3" drop ball mount. If that is the case then you will just need to use part # C63KR. In regards to the Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount like part # AMSCV-2, they both use a polyurethane bushing to reduce shock. The benefit however of the RockerBall is that it can be lubed so it will ideally last longer and reduce noise more.

  • Using High Rise Trailer Ball to Achieve No Rise or Drop on Ballmount
    When determining the required rise or drop of ball mount needed, there will be many instances where the available ball mounts will not match up exactly with the rise or drop needed. As long as the ball mount used places the trailer within 1-1/2 inches of level, you will be absolutely fine. Having the trailer above level is preferable to under level, as most vehicles will squat or settle a bit once the trailer is hitched to the vehicle.

    You are correct that the product description for the Curt Class V 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver, Part # C15810, shows the same tongue weight and gross towing weight ratings with and without weight distribution. This is because unlike lower capacity hitches, say a Class III, this Class V hitch is already rated at or near the vehicle structural limits. Strictly speaking, adding a weight distribution setup would give this hitch receiver higher capacity, but it would serve no purpose. Unless...
