Great extention for under my car, I was able to raise it enough for a standard trailer jack minimum height. This has held up very well under the weight of a small boat.

Vehicle: 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring (5-door hatchback). Hitch: C11471 Wiring kit: Tekonsha 118473 Drawbar: C45015 Ball: C40018 See my previous review on the hitch. The wiring kit took longer than expected to install but went generally well. The eTrailer instructions are good but miss what I consider to be a critical dimension. Note the picture with the ruler; the length of the drawbar must clear the rear bumper of the vehicle. The missing dimension is the distance from the center of the ball mounting hole to the rear of what I call the ball shelf. I now know that for my drawbar, this is about 3.5 inches; however, I did not know that when I ordered the drawbar and consequently ordered a longer drawbar than was required. I went by the distance from hitch pin to ball mount but had to guess whether it would clear my bumper which I knew needed at least six inches from the hitch pin center. No harm done but it would have been useful to know the distance from the ball hole center to the rear of the shelf. My only problem is to get the torque on the ball nut to 160 lb-ft. My torque wrench does not go that high. I'll figure out something. Everything else is great!

I just bought a Land Rover LSII. I pull a travel trailer so I had the dealer install a hitch. I discovered that the hitch was very low and under the bumper. I could not find a drawbar that would stick out far enough and go high enough to allow me to hook up my trailer. Until I found your drawbar (C45015). As you can see by the pictures, it's perfect. Thank you.

Here's 2 photos of the finished product. Doesn't stick out very far which is fantastic, because it definitely would have looked bad on the back of a 2 door coupe GTP. As for installation, being a mechanic, all I had to do was remove 2 rear exhaust rubber hangers and the one right behind the fuel tank, lower the exhaust onto a set of jacks to support the weight. Then drilled 2 1/2" holes with a 90 degree drill. The coiled wires included with the parts saved me tons of time trying to get the bolts in. Overall, it was fairly simple to install. Torquing the bolts proved a little difficult. I would recommend you inform the customers that they'll need at least a 10" eye to eye reciever (I have the 11" one on mine) in order to clear the rear bumper and provide some space between the bumper and trailer tongue. As for the wiring, I cut a small slit in the rubber plug under the spare tire, ran some bulk trailer wiring up through it, under the tire, under the floor matting, to the right side of the trunk, behind the tail light. And up under the lid on the right side, is the tail light wire harness/connector. Test light confirmed which wires were hot, tapped into them and all the wires and lights are good to go. Just some extra info for the DIY'er that might be handy on the website so they won't have to search for it! Couldn't be happier with the hitch.

I looked locally for a drawbar that would fit my 2001 Ford Taurus but couldn't find what I needed. Came to e-trailers where I've bought before and found this. They had a very wide selection. Perfect fit, great price, fast delivery. I would highly recommend this product and company. Steve

This extra-long, 1-1/4" trailer ball mount is designed with a graceful curvature resembling the neck of a swan. The trailer mount had the perfect reach & rise that I needed for my small, garden tractor fitted with a rear PTO. I congratulate etrailer.com for having this uncommon part directly from their stock into my hands so speedily. This was not my first fully satisfactory transaction with etrailer.com, and it certainly won't be my last! My thanks to all the staff at etrailer.com for such great products and service.

The Curt Class II Drawbar with a 5" rise very nicely solved my problem when hooking up my two trailers to my Rave 4. The trailer jack was as low as it could go when it rested on the ball in my of setup. Now I have plenty of jack room to hook up and unhook. Thanks for your excellent product and service. Ralph E.

I still love your trailer hitch one year later! I know its very good because I dont think about it, its just there working for me whenever needed. Thanks.

unit worked perfectly, I got the extended elevated ball mount for the receiver and worked perfect. after a while I found that I needed to back out of steep driveways slower so the receiver did not hit the ground. one thing that helped was replacing my original rear struts with an upgrade set. I needed to after 200,000 miles anyway. The wiring kit with your videos was easy and great.

The hitch on my Sienna is mounted low and recessed under the bumper so this ball mount has been perfect for the right height and reach for my boat trailer to ride level. etrailer is the only place I found what I needed. Actually I always look there first because they have such a good selection.


Comments
This ball mount is no longer needed for my boat since I now have a truck with a 2” ball mount but I still use it for my lawn mower trailer when needed behind my van. I can keep a 1 7/8” ball mounted on it. It is a solid piece of equipment.

I installed this draw bar on my 2013 Camaro to tow my trailer & 4-wheeler. I had a 4 inch riser, but this is a much better height and length to clear the rear lower diffuser. Fitment was spot on, and I would recommend this to any 5th gen camaro owner.

I occasionally have to tow my utility trailer with my Mustang Convertible. The standard drawbar barely cleared the bumper. I was very antsy when hooking up. The slightest mistake and I could do some real damage to the plastic bumper cover. This longer drawbar was just what the doctor ordered. The extra rise was also helpful. I looked everywhere local for a drawbar like this. Nobody had it. A Google search found etrailer.com and in no time I found just what I was looking and at a good price. They even gave me expedited shipping for the normal standard rate. Great product from a great supplier.

  • Ball Mount For a 2013 Chevy Camaro with 1-1/4 Hitch
    You are probably OK but if you are anything like I am it would be too close for comfort. I wouldn't want to take a chance at potentially causing any damage to my fascia. I recommend the Curt Class II Drawbar - 5" Rise - 11-5/8" Long - 3,500 lbs Item # C45015. The hitch on your vehicle is 8-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most part of your fascia and 9-3/4 from the ground to the top inner most part of the receiver tube. This ball mount has an 11-5/8" long shank...

  • Will Curt Class II Ball Mount Fit into Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver
    I just went out to our warehouse and installed the Curt Class II Ball Mount # C45015 into the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24796 and it fit perfectly. The Curt is 11-5/8 inches from the hitch pin hole to the hitch ball hole so it will work great for you. For a 2 inch hitch ball use # 19258 and for a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256. Then for a pin and clip use # F-4.

  • Ball Mount Compatibility with Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2010 Ford Mustang
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11048 is compatible with the Curt Class II Drawbar - 5" Rise - 11-5/8" Long - 3,500 lbs # C45015 you referenced. You will also need a hitch ball like # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch diameter or # A-82 for a 2 inch diameter. For trailer wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118487. This will connect behind your tail lights and then draw power directly from your battery....

  • Trailer Hitch Ball Recommendation for Curt Ball Mounts C45015 and C45014
    For a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball to use with the # C45015 or the # C45014 you would want the part # A-80. For a 2 inch hitch ball you would want the part # A-82. Both of these have a 3/4 inch diameter shank that is 2-1/8 inch long.

    When we installed the Draw-Tite # 24755 Class I hitch on a 2007 Acura TL, we found that the inside top edge of the receiver tube sat 10-1/2 inches above the pavement. To determine which ball mount would place your trailer as close to level as possible, you'll need to put the boat trailer up on it's jack so it's level, then measure from the bottom edge of the coupler to the ground. The height difference between 10-1/2 inches and the level trailer coupler height equals the amount of rise/drop...

  • Roof Rack Options for Loading 2 Kayaks onto a 2018 Honda Civic 4dr
    The first thing to look at is the roof capacity of your vehicle. The combined weight of the rack, 2 kayak carriers, and a pair of 64 pound kayaks is a concern. I confirmed the roof capacity is 110 pounds on the 2018 Civic Sedan. A better option and my recommendation is carrying your 2 kayaks on a Malone MicroSport Trailer designed for 2 Kayaks # MPG461G2. If you don't already have a tow package or hitch on your Civic, it requires a tow hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver...

    On your 2012 BMW Series 1 your only option is the Curt Class I 1-1/4 inch hitch # C11184 which has a max tongue weight of 200lbs and a max gross trailer rating of 2,000 lbs. So, you could potentially haul your two motorcycles on your trailer but there are some things we need to make sure of. First make sure that your vehicle can handle that weight.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation to Clear the Back of a 2007 Chevy HHR

If you have or are looking at hitch # C11447 then the ball mount that Curt recommends is # C45520 which is about the same length as C45015 so it would also have enough length. For either ball mount if the trailer takes a 2 inch ball use # C40018. And if it takes a 1-7/8 inch ball use # C40001. And if you don't already have a trailer wiring harness you...

However, it only provides 3-7/8 inches of rise and cannot be used in the drop position. Much less than the Brophy # BM96 you have. It does have the same 3/4 inch ball hole diameter as the Brophy. Another option that may work is the Curt # C45015 that's 11-5/8 inches long. It can't be used in the drop position either but does...

The center of the hitch pin is about 8-1/2" from your rear bumper. Any adapter that goes from a 1-1/4" receiver to a 2" receiver will reduce the weight capacity of the vehicles receiver by 50%.

  • Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Curt Ball Mount # C45015
    Since the shank of the ball mount part # C45015 is solid you'd have to go with a standard hitch lock like the part # TR63254 which will work well. Then for an anti-rattle device you'd want a universal kit like the part # 63090.

    There is an easy way to make sure you clear the bumper on your 2004 Chrysler Town and Country. You will need a tape measure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel. Hold the straight edge vertically against the rear bumper, making sure it extends below the hitch opening. Then just measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the straight edge. This gives you the distance you need to clear the bumper. The Curt Class Drawbar, part # C45014, measures 9-5/8 inches from the center...

Now these options only can be used on Class II hitches whereas the # C45520 can fit Class I or Class II so you'd need to verify that with the hitch of your vehicle.
