I am in Germany and found the delivery to my Army Post Office be pretty fast. 100 percent satisfied with the product, delivery and customer service.

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!

Yes, it works well on my Subaru Forester. I pull my johnboat with it.

I installed this on a 2004 Volvo XC70 along with a hitch from etrailer. Both work extremely well for my use (small motorcycle trailer). There's enough clearance between the bumper and the ball to get the trailer connection onto it without scraping the bumper (which is not the case with a 2007 XC70 where I have a similar hitch installed but the bumper plastic is thicker). This drawbar is classy-looking and fits the simple European styling of the car well. Chrome finish on the ball is very tough and I haven't had any rust problems at all.

Product is exactly as represented, high quality manufacture and recommended. I already had a 1 7/8th ball of the same type but most rental trailers suit the 2 inch ball better so now I have both. The 1 7/8 ball tends to rattle even though the fittings work ok and I found that getting it tight enough to not lift off means the ball gets a groove worn in it. Using this for light (up to 2000 lb) towing behind my Ford Focus, works really well and towed 4*8 cargo trailer without any problem.

Still great, towed a Jacuzzi on a trailer from California to Texas in 21 hours without any issue, its solid and work great.

Great product, sturdy build quality. So far, so good. I have no problems with this hitch. This hitch is perfect for my GMC Terrain. etrailer customer service is outstanding also as my first hitch put a hole in the box during shipping, and an empty box was delivered. I called etrailer, and they sent out a new hitch right away. I have done business with etrailer in the past and will continue to buy from them. Great company.

Receiver hitch and trailer tongue scale arrived sooner than I thought. It seems like a lot of money for a little scale like that but it will be well worth it knowing how much weight is really on the motorhome hitch. I can finally know for sure and make adjustments. Thank you Etrailer.

Your product is a great item, its easy to understand instructions, and it fit right up to where it said it would fit. It's has great workmanship. The only problem I had was with the delivery of the product. They came one about 6:15 pm, and my gate was locked, and from there on it became a problem. I change the address to one of UPS, their own access point, and they could not get it to their own access point for a total of four days and 3 tries they still didnt get it right. Finally, I went to UPS distribution center in West Sacramento, where they told me that my box had busted opened and I told them to give it to me like that that they didn't have to repair the Box I would just look in there and pull out the items. It still remains to be seen if there's a items missing from that box.

The drawbar appears perfect. Haven't had a chance to use it but I don't anticipate any problem. The company seems to really care about their image which is a very good thing. In my opinion, the only weak point is their cost of freight and the time it took to arrive. I have to admit, I have been spoiled by the master .com company out there which deals in everything.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Recommended Euro-Style Ball Mount for a 2015 Nissan Altima with Curt Class I Trailer Hitch
    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...

    The Curt Class II Euro Style Drawbar with 2-Inch Ball # C45572 that you referenced is intended specifically for a particular 1-1/4-inch Curt hitch with a Class II rating. This ball mount/ball combo is only usable with this size and class of hitch. It will not fit a Class I hitch (even though they too are the 1-1/4-inch size). Also, there is no equivalent product offered that will fit a 2-inch hitch, which typically has either a Class III or Class IV designation. However, we do offer...

However, Draw-Tite only recommends using the # 3593 ball mount in your hitch. I cannot recommend or endorse doing anything contrary to the manufacturer's recommendations. Also, keep in mind that the Curt Euro Ball Mount is rated for Class II, up to 3500 lbs. Your hitch is limited to 2000 lbs. You'll need to abide by the lowest rated component. Before attempting...

  • Hitch Ball Compatibility with European Model of Thule Easyfold XT
    The US version of the EasyFold XT # TH903202 utilizes the trailer hitch receiver itself and not the hitch ball. The European style that fits onto the 50mm hitch ball has not been tested on a 2 inch hitch ball so I can't confirm the fit. I reached out to Thule and their North American tech group can't confirm the fit or not as they are not cross trained and don't have the ability to test fit the conversion. For a 50mm ball I recommend # 63912 for a standard ball mount like # 3593 for...

  • Comparing Actual Height Rise of Curt Class II Euro Ball Mounts C45572 and C45562
    The nature of the Euro ball mount design, which has a curved shank and a shorter actual ball height than a free-standing hitch ball like # 19258, can allow for multiple interpretations of the actual rise. Not to worry. What I did for you was go to our warehouse and measure these two items. For the time being please ignore the specs and if you would use the following dimension I took on each ball mount.

  • How to Pick Out the Correct Rise/Drop Euro Ball Mount

The goal is to have your trailer towed as level as possible. In order to do that the correct rise/drop ball mount needs to be used.

  • 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...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Toyota Sienna
    On hitches that we have installed on a 2011 Toyota Sienna, we have found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to clear the rear bumper measured approximately 5-1/4 inches. I do not know what the factory installed hitch measurement is, so you will want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the distance required to clear the rear bumper.

Your vehicle has a payload rating between 935 and 1,055 lbs so if somehow you fit it inside your vehicle Ford would be okay with it.
