Getting the right drop or rise for the class of receiver that you need is a must before buying. The support that they have can talk you through on how to determine what class you need and the rise or drop to be able to safely pull your trailer. Next time you are on the highway and you see a tandem axle trailer it will most likely have to much drop hitch putting all the weight on the front axle. Etrailer staff will help you get your trailer to tow level saving you money on fuel and trailer repairs. 738036

The product is basic, but reliable. It turned out that I had to flip the bar to make sure the distance to the ground is good enough, but since it didn't impact the rating it gave me more flexibility 628618

Great products and service. I was able to order everything I needed to add a tow hitch and ball to my 2006 Jeep liberty. Very fast shipping. They even called me to verify orders and availability. Clear and easy to follow installation instructions. I hauled an [retailer] trailer from Texas to Ohio without any issues. Even bought a trailer and use it frequently for hardware stoe runs. 347097

I needed a longer ball receiver on order to accommodate the bike carrier that I purchased and found this one at etrailer.com. The service was great and the expedited shipping worked great. I received the product in Canada 2 days after I placed the order. Great service and an excellent product. Ready to hit the road!! 192608

2008 Honda Element SC setup was perfect with this turned over to provide 2 3/4" rise to the 2" ball. My jetski trailer was perfectly level with that setup. 627813

Solid component. Used with a 5000 lb hitch to tow a 2200 lb camp trailer behind a Kia Sorento. No issues over 14,000km in 12 months across the Canadian Rockies twice going coast-to-coast. 800606

The ball mount, recommended by a customer service rep, is a bit of a sloppy fit in the recommended hitch from etrailer. I had to purchase a stabilizer to stop the clanking, which is both an added expense and added work each time I want to remove the ball and mount. Etrailer has always been 100% in my book so I’m slightly disappointed in this product. 706803

Just what I needed. These longer ball mounts are difficult, if not impossible, to find, even in Houston. Shipping was quick and etrailer even upgraded to expedited shipping without me asking and without additional charge. Doesn't get any better than that. 691612

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 2-3/4" Rise and Extended Shank
    The longest fixed ball mount we offer with a 2-3/4" rise is the Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches part # 40345 which measures 11" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. If this will not work you will need a hitch extender, the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Hitch Receivers part # C45791 but keep in mind this will reduce your hitch capacity by 50%. If you go with the Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches, you'll also need the 2" Hitch Ball part # 63845.

  • Distance from Pin Hole to Each End of Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 40345
    I went out to the warehouse to measure Draw-Tite ball mount # 40345 for you. From the center of the pin hole to the closest end of the shank it is 2-3/4 inches. From the very front of the ball mount to the center of the pin hole it is 12-1/2 inches.

  • How Long is the 2 Inch Shank on Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 40345
    There are actually 3 shank length measurements for Draw-Tite ball mount # 40345 depending on where you are measuring. At the top, from the back of welded-on ball platform to the end of the shank is 9-5/16 inches. On the bottom it is 7-5/8 inches from the end of the shank to the support gusset and 9-5/8 inches to the back of the ball platform. I included a picture showing these measurements for you.

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness and Ball Mount for 2020 Mazda CX-5
    The etrailer brand # e98902 Class III hitch is a great choice for your 2020 Mazda CX-5. Finding the necessary rise/drop ball mount is a straightforward process. Measure from the top inside of the receiver tube to the ground. Measure from the underside of the trailer coupler when its jacked up level to the ground (or, you can use 17 inches as an average). Subtract the two numbers and the result is the rise/drop you need. If the receiver tube is taller, you'll use the ballmount in the...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer With a 2010 Honda Odyssey
    By all means, take your children camping! I took a look at the owner's manual for a 2010 Honda Odyssey and it looks like the maximum total trailer weight (the weight of your loaded trailer) you Odyssey can tow is going to depend on the number of occupants. According to the manual, the number of occupants is calculated at 150 lbs per person, so take that into account, though it seems likely your Odyssey will still have enough capacity for a 2,300 lb trailer, just be mindful of the amount...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2010 Ford E-150 With Step Bumper
    The rear bumper you have on your 2010 Ford E-150 is called a step bumper and is not anything out of the ordinary. Therefore, you will not run into any issues installing a trailer hitch. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75703 which will be perfect for light-medium duty towing. It has a class III rating with a 2" receiver tube opening. It also comes with a lifetime warranty. In order to tow a trailer with your van you are also going...

  • Do Longer Hitch Extenders Reduce Hitch Capacity
    There isn't a 100% direct mathematical relationship I'm aware of but yes, the further rearward you go from the hitch receiver, the lower the tongue weight capacity gets. Which is why extenders typically will reduce a trailer hitch's capacity by at least half or more. The same doesn't hold true for a longer ball mount, because it's a single piece and not an add-on like an extender. I'm assuming you have a 2 inch class III receiver on your 2012 Outback. I'm not sure what kind of rise/drop...
