I should have paid closer attention to the hole dimension of this item. A lot of times when you buy a product, you get a notification that says “people that bought this item also bought”, then it lists additional related items. That is when I bought the wrong size ball, I bought the first one that was shown, assuming it would fit. I neglected to read the description in detail. 484997

I ordered the Curt Ball Mount w/6"rise, 8" drop as I had a special need as my van had a lower hitch attachment than my full side truck. The Ball mount provided the exact clearance that I needed to tow as I was able to use the 6" rise side to raise the attachment point on my van. Very happy with my purchase. 440081

  • How to Pick Out Correct Rise/Drop Ball Mount for 2016 Honda Odyssey
    When determining the amount of rise/drop ball mount you'd need the two dimensions you need are the distance from the top of the hitch opening to the ground and from the bottom of the trailer coupler when it's sitting level. The difference between those two dimensions is the rise/drop you'd need. So for sure we know the hitch measurement is 12 inches. Lets say your coupler height was 18 inches from the bottom of it that would mean you'd need a 6 inch rise like # C45090. If your...

  • How to Pick Out Ball Mount for Honda Odyssey for Additional Rise
    So what you need is the correct ball mount rise/drop that will allow your trailer to be towed level. If you did need a ball mount with a 6 inch rise we have the # C45090 though. For hitch balls you would want part # 63845 for a 2 inch ball or # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch ball. I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground...

  • Recommended Fixed Ball Mount For 6 Inch Rise
    It is absolutely safe and legal to use a ball mount turned over to make a rise in the hitch height. For a 6 inch rise, I recommend using the Curt Ball Mount - 6" Rise, 8" Drop - 11-1/2" Long - 5,000 lbs # C45090. The weld is secure using a rise or drop. You simply need to reverse the hitch ball. For a 2 inch hitch ball, I recommend # 63845 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 63847. If you are looking for more versatility in options, I recommend and adjustable ball mount like the MaxxTow...

  • Recommended Ball Mount with Correct Drop to Tow Trailer Level
    It sounds like you need a ball mount with a drop of at least 8 or 9 inches. A couple options are the Curt # C45090 with 8 inches of drop and the Curt # C45112 with 10-1/4 inches of drop. Another option since you're not positive exactly how your trailer is going to sit when hooked up is to go with an adjustable ball mount. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS10-2 will give you up to 10 inches of drop so you have the ability to choose the best height for your trailer. This also has a built...

  • Recommended Shank and Head for Unique Rise Required on 2011 Toyota Venza
    You are correct the Curt # C45090 has the 3 inch measurement from the hitch pin center to the edge of that support. You have a deeply recessed hitch based on your description, so there are not any ball mounts that will fit. My recommendation is the Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17122 which has that support bar 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin. Then you can use the head # C17107 for a hitch ball platform compatible.

  • Distance from Hitch Pin Hole to Weld Gusset on Curt Ball Mount # C45090
    On the Curt Ball Mount # C45090 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the near edge of the reinforcing gusset is 3-inches. From the hole center to the end of the shank the measure is 2-1/2-inches. I prepared a photo diagram for you to show these dimensions. I also linked our main page for all 2-inch ball mounts.

Curt ball mount # C45090 has a 6 inch rise and when in the rise position it is rated for 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 350 pounds tongue weight. The rise is measured from the top of the receiver opening to the top of the ball platform. We also have # C45100 with 6-1/4 inch rise. Capacity is the same as the above ball mount. For 5 inches of rise we have # DTBM4600 rated for 10,000 pounds gross trailer weight. I have...

    I have a couple of different options for you to use with your 2010 Ford Explorer that will give you the 8 inch drop that you are looking for and will not decrease the tongue weight. For a shank that will get the job done we have the Curt Ball Mount # C45090 which has a 6 inch Rise and the 8 inch Drop that you are looking for. This ball mount will fit with a 2 inch hitch receiver and is 11-1/2 inches long. Using it in the Drop position gives it a Gross Towing Weight of 5,000 lbs and a...

    For a class III fixed ball mount with a 6" rise that will accept a 2" hitch ball I recommend using the Curt Ball Mount part # C45090. This is actually the only ball mount we have that meets all of your criteria. For a 2" hitch ball I recommend using the 2" Hitch Ball part # 40038. You will also need a hitch pin and for that I recommend a locking one like the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # e98880. The ball mount has a 3,500 lb towing capacity which will not be an issue on your 2013 Chevy...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for EcoHitch Installed on 2019 Tesla Model 3 Towing 18 inch Tall Trailer
    When we installed the EcoHitch part # 306-X7373 on a 2018 Tesla Model 3 just like your 2019 model we found that the top of the hitch opening measures 9-3/4 inches from the ground. So to tow a trailer with an 18 inch coupler height measured at the top of the ball you'd want a rise of right at 6 inches since the standard place to measure is the bottom of the coupler lip. For that we have the Curt ball mount part # C45090 which would work perfectly for this. For a hitch ball then you'd...

The distance between these two measurements will give you the correct amount of rise/drop you will need to look for in a ball mount.

  • Do The Blue Ox High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars Have a Tongue Weight Capacity Rating
    The Blue Ox High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars part # BX88131 is designed for flat towing a vehicle behind a motor home so there is not a tongue weight capacity since the vehicle is supporting itself on all 4 wheels. If you are using this for flat towing a vehicle the overall capacity of the adapter is 5,000 lbs. It sounds like you may be towing a trailer and need a ball mount with 8" of rise/drop. The closest option available to the Blue Ox High-Low Adapter is Curt Ball Mount part # C45090...

I have attached installation videos for each on a similar Routan for you to reference. If you check out the video for the Draw-Tite # 75579, we found that when we installed it on a 2012 Routan that the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver opening was 12-1/4 inches.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan SE
    To be able to tow 2,000 pounds with your 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan you will need to have either the 3.8 liter or 4.0 liter motor and the vehicle will need to be equipped with the factory tow package. Then at the very least it can tow 3,000 pounds with 6 to 7 people and luggage in the van. I have included a picture of 2 pages from the owners manual showing the different capacities based on how the vehicle is equipped.

    With a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 76082 installed on your 2017 Mercedes GLC300 if you need a 6 inch rise you can take a ball mount and flip it upside down. For example we have the Curt ball mount part # C45090 which when upside down gives 6 inches of rise.

  • Ball Mount with More than 5 Inches of Drop to Tow a Trailer Level with a Jeep Commander
    We do have ball mounts that you can use that have more drop than 5-1/2 inches. But you have to choose one based on the hitch you have, 1-1/4 inch receiver opening or 2 inch receiver opening. On a 1-1/4 inch hitch you have to use the ball mount indicated by the hitch manufacturer or it can void the hitch warranty. But if you have a 2 inch receiver then you can use any ball mount that fits your needs. I have included a link to the right that shows how to measure to determine the proper...

  • Class III Ball Mount with 6-Inches of Rise for Use with 2012 Toyota RAV4
    For a Class III ball mount with 6-inches of rise use part # C45090 from Curt. We do not have one with the exact 5-1/4-inches you want but that small difference will not matter. You are correct that you want your trailer to be as level as possible to help minimize sway. Careful loading (to maintain a tongue weight of 15-percent of gross trailer weight) will also help.

  • Can the 8 Drop Dual Hitch Adapter Be Used for Towing
    I do have an option for you but none of the dual hitch adapters that provide adequate drop can be used for towing. Instead, you'd need to go with a standard ball mount with the drop you need like the Curt Ball Mount part # C45090. Then, you can carry the rod rack on the tongue of the trailer (if a-frame) with the Swagman Straddler part # S80503 or on the front of the vehicle with a front mount trailer hitch, the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31028.

  • Ball Mount or High-Low Adapter with 6 Inches of Rise
    It sounds like you're looking for either a ball mount or high-low adapter with 6 inches of rise. If you're looking for a high-low adapter we have # RM-076 that has 6 inches or rise or drop. If it's a ball mount you need then we have # C45090 which has a 6 inch rise. In this case you may also need a hitch ball. Use # 19260 for a 1-7/8 inch ball, # 63845 for a 2 inch ball, or # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch ball. You'll need to choose the correct size ball that fits your trailer's coupler.

  • Will Hitch Ball 63845 Fit in Ball Mount C45090
    Yes, the hitch ball part # 63845 does fit the Curt ball mount part # C45090 since it has a 1 inch diameter shank and the ball hole of this ball mount is 1 inch. I attached review video links for both products mentioned as well.
