The products were as expected. The packaging was poor. The heavy, forged steel, Hitch ball mount was thrown into the same box as the wiring harness. There was no attempt to secure or pad the items so the ball mount wouldn't hammer away at the wiring harness everytime the package was turned over. It shows a lack of respect for the hard earned dollars that were spent on the parts...no appreciation for the business. 589791

I like etrailer for all my towing needs over the years. The fact you wait a year to ask for a review speaks volumes. 2018 Ram truck has a 2.5" receiver! The square "bushing" set-up supplied with the vehicle did not seem very sound, although it probably is. Anyway the forged 2.5" stinger has been fine-no worries for me! Bomb-proof!! 603086

The products I received are exactly as represented on the website. They appear to be of the high quality that I have come to expect from e-trailer. I have ordered numerous things from them over the years and these were shipped promptly and received in a short period of time as is always the case when I order from e-trailer. 599196

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Recommended Pintle Hitch and Lunette Ring for 2015 Ford F-750 with 23,800 lb Trailer
    For your 2015 Ford F750 boom truck, there is not a ball mount rated for that weight capacity. The largest capacity is 20K for a 2-1/2 inch hitch like # C45458 or 21K for a 3 inch hitch receiver like # C45430. We don't have a trailer hitch receiver rated that high either. It appears the truck does have the towing capacity to handle that trailer, but you will need to use a direct mount like the Curt Pintle Hook - Bolt On - 30,000 lbs # C48215. A pintle hook and lunette ring combination...

  • How Long Should Hitch Ball Shank Be to Fit Curt Forged Ball Mount # C45458
    The 2-1/2 inch shank length on B&W ball # BWHB94004 might be just a bit too short for ball mount # C45458. The recommended ball, # C40008, has a shank length of 2-3/4 inches. Basically the shank has to be long enough for the nut to thread all the way on with about 3 or more threads sticking out past the bottom of the nut.

  • Will Hitch Balls # 19286 and # A-90 Fit the Curt Forged Ball Mount # C45458
    Yes, both of the hitch balls ( # 19286 and # A-90) would have long enough shanks to fit the Curt Forged Ball Mount # C45458. They also have the correct shank diameter of 1-1/4 inch.

  • Determining Proper Trailer Ball Height
    In order to determine what rise/drop ball mount you need, you'll need to take some measurements. Measure the distance from the inside top of the receiver opening to the ground. Then with a level trailer, measure the distance from the underside of the coupler to the ground. The difference between these two measurements will be the rise/drop you'll need. If the hitch is higher than the coupler, you'll need a drop. If the coupler is taller than the hitch, you'll need a ball mount with a rise....

  • Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch Hitch that Has 4 inches of Drop
    We do have the Curt fixed ball mount part # C45458 which fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch and has a 4 inch drop like you said you needed. I attached a review video for this ball mount for you to check out as well.

  • Are Solid Shank Ball Mounts Better Than Those with a Hollow Shank
    You can absolutely trust the manufacturer ratings for the ball mounts we have available, regardless of whether or not they feature a solid or hollow shank. Ball mounts and other towing products are typically tested well beyond their actual listed capacities, so you can be sure they can handle the specificied maximums without issue. You will just need to make sure that the various other components of your towing system can also support the weights you are looking to pull, such as the trailer...

  • What is Hitch Pin Size for Curt # 45458 Class-V Hitch
    Your Curt # 45458 Ball Mount uses a 5/8" hitch pin with clip or locking mechanism. I would recommend the Draw-Tite # PC3 pin and clip, or if you (perfer) PREFER a locking hitch pin I recommend the BW # BWTS51235 Receiver Lock. I have attached a link to these product pages and a video review of the BW lock.

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 4" Drop for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The Roadmaster High-Low Adapter part # RM-058-4 is designed for flat towing applications and is not rated for the tongue weight associated with straight pull towing. If you need a ball mount with a 4" drop then I recommending using the Curt Forged Ball Mount part # C45458. As long as you have a 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver on your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 then this ball mount will work well for you. If you have a standard 2" trailer hitch receiver then you will want to use the Curt...

  • Is there a Ball Mount Larger than a Class V 2-1/2 Inch
    If your hitch receiver opening is larger than 2-1/2 inches then the next step up is a 3 inch if you are talking about physical size and not capacity. The 3 inch ball mount you need is # 40701 if this is the case. The hitch ball to fit is # C40085. This is not a common size though so I do recommend verifying the size of the receiver opening on the hitch. I have also included a link to our ball mount main page. If you mean capacity then the highest capacity 2-1/2 inch ball mount that we...

  • Recommended Mud Flaps to Use on Both 2014 and 2020 Ford F-350 With Different Receiver Sizes
    Since you're already using a 2" ball mount in this application, it might be easier for you (or at least more cost effective) to continue going that route depending on your towing needs. Because you'll need a sleeve reducer for your 3" hitch when you switch to that truck, you can use the Curt Hitch Reducer # C45408 which will reduce both a 3" and 2.5" receiver down to a 2" receiver and allow you to use your existing ball mount. From there, the Access Rockstar XL # A10100311 will provide...

  • How to Add Friction Sway Control Tab to Side of Curt Ball Mount # C45458
    The # RP26003 would not fit the Curt ball mount part # C45458 as the ball hole of the ball mount is too big for the # RP26003. Instead you'd need to weld on the tab # 3442 to attach it.

  • Anti-Sway Options for Towing 33 Foot Camper
    It is true that we recommend using 2 friction anti-sway systems like the Curt # 17200 when the trailer exceeds 26' long. This is simply because 1 system won't be effective enough to make a difference. I believe that you are referring to the Curt Forged Ball Mount # C45458 which has a 4" drop and fits 2-1/2" hitch receivers. You can have 2 of the weld-on sway control tab # C45822 installed on this ball mount so you can use 2 of the kit # 17200 and it would work just fine. Even though...
