Looks heavy duty. Great price and even better customer service. It shipped fast and I received it acday sooner than I was told. This was my 2nd order with etrailer.com and it won’t be my last.

I am completely satisfied with the product. Great quality and excellent finish. Prompt shipping and excellent customer service. It is stylish and functional and will meet my needs for towing up to 3,500 pounds. I would definitely do business with this company again!!!

Great product, fits trailer nicely, heavy duty, and very well packed. I purchased the Hitch from Carid, and it was shipped straight from Curt Mfg. The hitch busted holes in the box from floating around (no packaging materials inside), when I bought this 2" ball from etrailer it came in a etrailer box and was surrounded by brown paper to where the ball/bar didn't shift in the box.

Still works great! Curt makes some good products, no issue with the light wiring, ball, or hitch receiver.

The hitch shop wanted $400.00 to get and install the receiver. I ordered the part from you with ease from the website. When it arrived I installed it in less than 30 minutes. I watched the short video on the website and it went right in. All the holes lined up perfectly. The only problem I had was my sockets rolling down the driveway. Great product easy install and great instructions.

Not as versatile as a traditional hitch mount and ball, but much neater if it happens to fit your needs. This fits my Subaru Outback perfectly and places the ball at the ideal height for my trailer. One piece means one less thing to fail.

The mount has held up. I've been babying mine so no rust and barely any scrapes on it. It's helped me in a few pinches. Overall very satisfied. The real star is Natalie. I remember her from when I bought the thing. That's excellent example of customer follow through. Good on ya.

Great. No problems. Ive been quite pleased with the hitch. Id recommend it to anyone

This ball was mounted on our 14' Subaru Forester. It is just the right height to pull our TENTRAX trailer and doesn't interfere with the rear hatch. It also stores easily in the spare tire compartment when not in use. Good Purchase !!

I love love love European style hitches for sports cars. They look right. The only thing I wish is that they had an option for a higher rise, since the Fiesta ST is a pretty low car.



- C45562
by:

Drawbar works as advertised. FWIW, the TOP of the ball to the TOP of the drawbar is 6-5/8". If the ball was round on top (it is flat, as can be seen in the pictures), the distance would be more like 6-3/4". This should make it easier to detemine if this is the hitch for your needs. I had trouble finding this info on the web.



- C45562
by:

Not much to say. Clean and works! (It's too tall for a VW AllTrack pulling a SylvanSport Go, so I ended up buying one with a little bit less raise/height.)

This hitch has worked perfectly on my Subaru for over a year now. Last summer I pulled my tear drop trailer around the country with no problems and the finish on the hitch still looks like new. I would recommend this hitch to a friend.



- C45562
by:

Product is perfectly as described. I will just have to get a bit higher rise. Also the chrome plating peeled off ball within a 2 mile drive. So product durability will possibly be an issue. It is just a trailer ball but the plating should not be peeling off this soon.

Comments
All of the Curt Euro Ball Mounts are Class II ball mounts designed to fit 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers. For a ball mount with a similar rise that fits a 2 inch receiver, you would want something like part # C45341
Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 3" Rise - 4" Drop - 17,000 lbs
$54.63
with a hitch ball # A-90
2" Hitch Ball - 1-1/4" Diameter x 2-5/8" Long Shank - Chrome - 10,000
$20.23
. You could also use a hitch reducer sleeve to allow this Euro Ball Mount to fit a 2 inch hitch receiver, such as part # HT02

$96.48

I was told by the sales rep that this hitch would give 3.25" of rise. When I received it I could tell it was too high so I measured it. It's 5.125" from the bottom of the ball to the top of the square shank, and 6.5" from the top of the ball to the top of the square shank. And it's even printed right on the sticker 5 1/8" rise.

Excellent! Customer service was great too!! I'm using this to haul a pop up camper with my Subaru Outback. A regular hitch makes the connection too close to the bumper. This is perfect!!

by:

Seems to work like it is supposed to. I bought this for my wife's SUV, picking this style just to offset the look apart from the usual. Based on my trailer tongue height, I would have liked a bit more rise, say 5" total, but everything seems to load and unload easy enough.

This item was accurately described, and EXACTLY what I needed to complete my trailering needs. Another pleasant etrailer transaction.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • How to Select the Correct Rise or Drop for a Euro Style Drawbar on 2017 Subaru Outback
    Thank you for the dimensions; you correctly measured from the ground to the top of the hitch on your 2017 Subaru Outback, though the other measurement is from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. Assuming your coupler is roughly 2 inches tall, from the ground to the bottom of the coupler would be approximately 18 inches. Since the top of your hitch is 15 inches, you need a drawbar that gives you about 3 inches of rise. For Euro Style drawbars rise is measured to the beginning of...

  • What is the Rise on Curt Euro-Style Ball Mount # 45562
    For Curt Euro style ball mount # C45562, it measure 3-1/8 inches from the top of the shank to the beginning of the vertical curve that leads up to the ball. To the bottom of the ball is just over another 2 inches so it is about 5-3/8 inches to the bottom of the ball measuring from the top of the shank. I have included a picture showing the measurements.

  • Choosing Correct Ball Mount for 2014 Mercedes Benz GLK 250 BlueTec w/ Factory Hitch
    I would imagine that Mercedes puts a Class III hitch on that vehicle as the factory option. You can confirm that by measuring the INSIDE dimension of the receiver opening. If it measures 2 by 2 inches, it's a Class III. If it's 1-1/4 by 1-1/4 inches, its a Class I or II. The sticker on the hitch should tell you which. Both the ball mounts you mentioned could be used in a Class I or II hitch, as long as the capacity of the hitch or the ball mount isn't exceeded. If you have the Class...

    Sounds like your Mazda Miata's trailer hitch is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver. If so you won't need any additional parts to attach a bike carrier. You'll just need the carrier. For a bike rack, I recommend going with the Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack, # B202-114. This is a quality, lightweight bike rack that is compatible with Class I trailer hitches.

  • Trailer Hitch to Carry Bikes with a 2010 Nissan Sentra
    To carry bikes on your 2010 Nissan Sentra I recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24794. It is the most popular hitch option for your Sentra. This trailer hitch has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and is rated as a Class I. Because it is a Class I trailer hitch you will need a bike carrier that is rated for use on a Class I trailer hitch and you are limited to carrying a maximum of 2 bikes. For a compatible bike carrier that meets those requirements I recommend the Swagman Trailhead...

  • Will the Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar, # C45562, Fit a 2008 Ford Escape with 1-1/4 Inch Receiver
    The Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar, # C45562, fits a 1-1/4 inch receiver and has a 2 inch diameter ball. Normally on a Class II trailer hitch, you have to use the ball mount recommended by the hitch manufacturer to avoid voiding the warranty. Otherwise to choose the correct ball mount you would follow the steps to measure for rise or drop in the FAQ I have linked for you.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2004 Chrysler Sebring Sedan
    We have 2 trailer hitch options available for the 2004 Chrysler Sebring Sedan- a Draw-Tite and a Curt; I recommend using the Curt # C12186 since the powder coating on the Curt hitches is a little bit more durable, so you'll have a hitch that stands up a bit better to some of the rigors of towing. If you're going to be towing with this hitch you'll also need a ball mount, hitch ball and wiring harness to power the trailer lights. For the wiring harness I recommend using the Tekonsha #...

By that measure this golf cart job will be in excess of what Honda recommends. For smaller towing jobs under that limit, the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24787 with T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118302 and the Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar with 2" Ball # C45562 would be a fine...

    The recommended 2 inch Euro style ball mount for Curt trailer hitch # C11352 on a 2015 Nissan Altima is # C45572. I went out to the warehouse and pulled one to take some measurements. From the center of the pin hole to the part of the shank where it starts to bend up is 3 inches. This will work because the rear bumper on the Altima tapers upward above the hitch receiver. At 6-1/2 inches out from the center of the hitch pin hole, where the shank starts to bend straight up, it is at a...

I know you have a hitch already but for trailer wiring then the kit we'd recommend is the part # 118336 because it installs very easily and has the most reliable converter box of the kits we offer.

It is designed to angle at both ends of the crosstube, whereas the Draw-Tite # 24866 has a crosstube which is straight at one end, allowing for more flexibility during the install.
