Worked with Madeline at Etrailer for a bar and wiring harness fir a LS460 She did the research and took the time to get me the right parts for my vehicle Outstanding service and pride in their products Will only shop here for all trailer needs

It is heavy duty and well-built. I am not disappointed at all and I get comments everyone smile from people who are used to traveling overseas asking where I got the European style hitch from. The only downside is the lack of interchangeability in the size of the ball itself but I don’t think that’s a big deal because I set it up for what I need it for and keep a vehicle vehicle for longer periods of time.


Comments
Still looks great and works perfectly. It may have the disadvantage of not having interchangeable balls but Let’s be honest, once you’ve used it for a year regularly it’s going to be corroded enough you’re not gonna want to change it out anyway so having multiple sizes of them sitting around and not having to change the ball mount is a better design anyway

Solid, heavy as heck. Bought this model because 1) I only have 1 lightweight trailer (Malone xtralight, also purchased from etrailer at the same time) and it’s light weight. 2) I am stuffing this into an adaptor also bought from etrailer to further stuff into a receiver also purchased from etrailer. 3) All this is on the back of my 2018 Subaru Outback. Beings that it’s a Subaru it’s not going to be used to drag a huge or heavy trailer. I’ll repeat this part in my review of the adapter, buy probably from etrailer, a receiver lock that is sleeved, to be both 1/22 and 5/8 and long. That way if you don’t want this sticking way out the back (shin killer) you can use 1 lock and go all the way through receiver/ adapter/ and this ball mount. Otherwise buy you’ll need 2 locks 1 for receiver to adapter 5/8 and a second 1/22 to go through adapter into this unit. A side benefit is it’s just different. It’s not an everyday boring looking ball mount, it’s heavy duty so why not.

Just received it and haven't made any long trips with it yet, but it fits very snugly into my OEM Subaru receiver and the pin fits very snugly through both, so already I'm anticipating a much more quiet and rattle-free experience than I've had with the Curt & DrawTite equipment on my other vehicles. Will follow up this review with any substantial information.

It was available for exactly the rise needed for our GO trailer. No issues, clean look and hangs tough. Nice choice for a sleeker look.

Very good quality item. Although I needed to buy a hitch adaptor as I have a 2" hitch. I'm using this with a European bike rack so I don't need the towing capabilities though.

This drawbar is a perfect fit for my vehicle. Feels very sturdy with a high quality look and feel. Wanted something that was one piece instead of separate parts that needed assembly and this is the one. Thanks etrailer for great communication and speedy delivery.

I like that this design keeps trailers level rather than pitched forward for my 2007 Subaru Forester. Seems incredibly strong because of its weight and being one piece.

Review from a similar Euro Style Drawbar in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This worked out to be the perfect ball and mount for my purpose- occasionally having to use my car to tow my utility trailer. I got this and the DrawTite receiver hitch for my '99 Monte Carlo and everything went together in less time than the estimated time that had been shown. Very happy with both purchases!


Comments
Very well! Trailer is just the right height and towing is very easy.

Review from a similar Euro Style Drawbar in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great Product! After installing a Curt (C11184) Hitch on my '08 BMW 135i convertible, I needed a drawbar and ball. I really liked the elegant design and one piece simplicity that this one has. It is very sturdy and the dimension measurements were accurate. The whole reason I got it was to trailer my new (old) wood boat home from the barn I found it in. Once the hitch was on and the (56146KIT) Wiring kit was installed. This drawbar slid right in. Thanks to the accurate measurements the trailer sat at the perfect height the first time.


Comments
Its now been a year and the hitch is still working wonderfully. I get plenty of comments from folks on how cute it looks. Its simple, non rugged appearance, while being strong as an ox, really works well with my little BMW convertible and delicate appearing wood boat. It was a great purchase

Review from a similar Euro Style Drawbar in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great product. Fit and finish is excellent. I've mounted the Curt 1 1/4" hitch to my 2007 Mazdaspeed3. Taking the rear bumper off, which only took 30 minutes (maybe a few minutes more than that) made it very easy to attach the Curt hitch to the car. I wanted to compliment the Mazdaspeed3's overall appearance, so, I decided to go with the Curt euro ball mount 11 3/4" . Very pleased with the outcome.


Comments
The CURT 1-1/4 HITCH along with the CURT 1-1 3/4 EURO BALL MOUNT have exceeded all my expectations and have performed excellently. The tutorial from ETRAILER made this installation a breeze. When asked or prompted, Ive highly endorsed ETRAILER for providing quality accessory products for my 2007 Mazdaspeed3. From the ROLA Roof Rack and accompanying ROLA bike racks, to the CURT Hitch and CURT EURO Ball Mount, ETRAILER has stood head and shoulders above the competition in customer service, correspondence, quality name brand products, and value for your money.Whenever I need an accessory for my Mazdaspeed3 , I check ETRAILER first. I will be a loyal customer with ETRAILER for as long as they are in business.

Review from a similar Euro Style Drawbar in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Heavy duty! I was a little bummed when I found out how much more difficult it was to find a half inch pin for this, but no matter. It is a tad loose inside the hitch, so there's a little rattle, but I doubt it's as noticable as I make it seem. Super classy and a welcome change from the typical draw bar style. Goes great with my Volvo V70 T5. Thanks etrailer.com!

Love this item. Installed on a 2016 Hyundai Sonata, vehicle sits low so the rise on this was perfect. Installed with the Curt wiring harness #C56247 and the Drawtite Sportframe receiver #24940. Works excellent together.

I was looking for the euro-style drawbar for our 2017 VW Tiguan, because we are going to have it shipped back to Europe. And I found one here in the USA at etrailer.com. So we do not have to convert our hitch in Europe. Good and solid product.

Love this hitch. It looks and fits my Optima perfectly. I was really pleased to find a modern looking hitch to fit on my car. Very strong, solid construction. I don't plan to pull a large trailer with my car but this will work perfectly for my utility trailer. Very friendly and helpful customer service and it was delivered faster than I hoped for. Extremely pleased. Thanks...

Review from a similar Euro Style Drawbar in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Has been able to tow my jetski on a fairly low "hot-hatch" type car. I would maybe go one notch taller if I could, but I'm not sure they make them in a higher rise size.

Thanks for your review. We do not have any taller Euro style or regular ball mounts for inch and a quarter receiver with a 2 inch ball.

Review from a similar Euro Style Drawbar in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Service from eTrailer was great, they even wrote to ensure I got the order correct when I ordered a different size hitch cover than the drawbar that I ordered. Picture attached of the somewhat unique application for the Euro style setup I’m using – I’m dragging my race tires to racing events with my 750HP Cobra!

This exceeds the rating on your 2012 Toyota RAV4. If you have the V6 your tow rating is 2,000lbs or with the Inline 4 you will be able to tow 1,500lbs.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Mini Clubman 2012
    For a 2012 Mini Clubman the recommended hitch is the Curt # C11387 which is a confirmed custom fit. This also fits 2011 model. This hitch has a 2,000 lb towing capacity which you'd need to stay under that weight and the towing capacity for the vehicle listed in the owners manual. I attached an install video for this hitch as well. For a ball mount you'd want the part # C45552 and for trailer wiring part # C59236.

    There is a special circumstance when using a Class I trailer hitch for towing. Basically you will have to use the ball mount specified by the hitch manufacturer or it can void the warranty. This is to ensure that the wrong ball mount is not used (which could be too much stress on a Class I hitch). Trailer hitch C11085 does not fit your 1992 Mercedes 400E. The hitch you need is # C11816. The recommended ball mount for this hitch is # C45503. For a compatible 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256...

  • Choosing the Right Curt Class II Euro Style Ball Mount to Tow a Trailer Level
    If you are measuring to the top of the coupler then I will have to ask for the measurement to the bottom of the coupler instead. This is because the coupler covers the ball so the measurement to the bottom of the coupler provides a more accurate representation of what kind of rise or drop is needed to tow a trailer level. I am willing to bet that the measurement to the bottom of the coupler will have you at just about level. That would make the best Curt Euro-style ball mount with a...

Since you have the port for the trailer wiring the Curt harness part # 56096 would fit and work well.
