If you have a trailer with a short tongue, like I do, this Hidden Hitch Extra Long Ball Mount is a big help! I bought a 2021 Nissan Frontier, which has a taller tailgate than the Tacoma I previously used, and found that when the tailgate was down so I could see to back my trailer to load my boat, that I only had about 2 to 2-1/2 inches of clearance between the tailgate and the winch mounting post, and I would damage the tailgate and/or winch post when making a tight turn. I went online to find a longer hitch mount, and found this one. Not only does it solve the problem, but the longer hitch mount actually makes the trailer easier to back than a regular mount! The only negative I have to say is that the hole drilled in the long mount for the pin to go through to secure it to the hitch receiver was drilled offcenter, and as a result it is not flush in the receiver and tilts the longer hitch mount at a slight sideways angle. This results in the trailer hitch catching on the ball when I go to raise it, and you it takes the force of continuing to raise the trailer to get the hitch off the ball.



After a year the Hidden Hitch Extra Long Ball Mount is still the best option for me. It also makes it easier to back the trailer into my garage. Originally I needed a longer ball mount due to tailgate being too close to winch post, but pleasantly found out the longer hitch makes backing up easier.


Great hitch ball mount!
Excellent construction,
easy to install
etrailer shipped the product very quickly and as promised


This is exactly the product I needed to extend the hitch on my tent trailer. Now I can open the tailgate without unhitching the trailer.


Perfect fit and now I can open my truck tail gate without hitting the tongue jack!


Bought this a year ago, and I've been towing an 18 foot boat behind a retired ambulance with no trouble. Coating has held up fine. My ambulance has a bumper setup that's resistant to hitches, and this puts the ball solidly behind the bumper. Extra length also keeps the tow rig a little farther from the slimy part of the boat ramp, and keeps the outside corner of the bumper farther from the trailer when backing around a corner.


Communication was incredible. eTrailer team looked to find a different hitch as the one I ordered appeared to be back-ordered. I indicated i would wait and within 2 days I was notified by eTrailer that the original one had actually shipped. Great customer service! Thanks


Needed to extend the hitch on my side by side. This did just the trick. Now I have room to crank the tongue jack on trailers I want to hook up to. As always, Etrailer did an outstanding job on getting the part to me in a timely manner.

Working just fine.Thanks for asking.


The eTrailer staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. The hitch and ball that I ordered fit perfectly on my 2021 Bronco with a 35-in spare tire.


This ball mount is good quality. I needed the long length to essentially extend a utility trailer tongue length in order to carry a small jon boat with adequate boat-to-tow vehicle clearance.


Attaching the trailer was easy and provided me a higher comfort level when backing up to center the ball under the hitch because I had more room between the coupling and my Tundra. Additionally this product provided me the ability to open my Tundra bed door while my trailer is attached. Lastly it provides me a greater turning radius when backing up. I would recommend this product.


This extended ball mount made it a lot easier to maneuver a 16 foot Airstream. The stock ball mount was pretty stubby and didn't allow for much wiggle room with backing up. And of course the added bonus is I can lower my truck tailgate while hitched to the camper that will come in handy when I install a truck tonneau cover.


I have a 2004 RAV 4 and I was trying to get my ball away from the spare tire carrier. I think I probably would have been fine with the next size (shorter) ball mount and still got the job done. The good news is that with the 2 inch drop, I can open the rear door and it just rubs the seal at the bottom of the door a little bit, but I can still easily open the door. I did not want to drop the ball any lower, So this works out well for my rig.


This mount was just long enough for my bike rack to mount to and not interfere with the trailer wheel crank. The service from was excellent. Got the mount to me in record time and packaged to avoid any possible damage. I will definitely return for my other trailer needs to


etrailer and all its folks continue to excel. This company firmly believes in "under promise, over perform". My recent order arrived earlier than usual.


I am very pleased with the product do not have to crawl under the Polaris to hook the trailers up anymore. Just what the Doctor ordered makes hooking up and unhooking so easy. I would give it five stars. Will be ordering again from etrailer. Thanks so much.


Some pictures of the hitch in place. Works very well. Hauled a few trailers already with no issues. Very strong ball mount regarding its long length.


Just what I needed for my 2020 GMC
Sierra tailgate clearance. Worked out great.



Still working out great


Delivered on time and as described. Bought for my utility trailer to avoid smashing my tailgate into the tongue jack. Works as it should and a better alternative than welding on a new piece to move the jack.


Order processing was efficient. The delivery was quick. The product is well built. It is installed on my truck and waiting to pull the trailer. I would recommend etrailer and this product.


Great product and great service. Exactly what I was looking for


Very fast shipping and a great price.


This item was one of many I needed to build a boat trailer for my 16 foot inflatable. COVID and supply chain issues made buying a market trailer impossible, so I decided to build one. I started with a suitable trailer with a fold down ramp, available locally. Then with the inspiration and instruction of many pictures on the etrailer site, I designed and assembled a custom built trailer with bunks, rollers, mounts, winch/stand, etc. with the parts sold here. The trailer worked fine for launching/retrieving the boat fully assembled. Thanks for your help!
Now all that's needed is more water in Lake Powell...


With this long receiver, I can tilt my tailgate down without hitting my trailer jack stand.


fast delivery, great service


As described.

  • Does Hidden Hitch 80232 Reduce Towing Capacity
    You do not lose any towing capacity when you use the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80232 despite it's longer length of 15 inches.

  • Availability of Longer Ball Mount to Fit 2 inch Trailer Hitch
    The Hidden Hitch ball mount part # 80232 is a longer ball mount that fits 2 inch hitches. It is 15-3/4 inches from the pin hole to the ball hole center. This is a Class III ball mount but there aren't any in Class IV.

    The RetraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Trax Rails part # RTT-80232 will fit as you see it in the customer photos. The rad Ram 1500 photos are stock photos from the manufacturer before a slight design change happened.

  • RetraxPRO XR with Tracks Weight Capacity
    Even if there was a third bar option for the Retrax # RTT-80232 you are limited to 500 lbs evenly distributed. There wouldn't be a safe way to increase it. But if you are at 450 lbs and not 500 you'd be totally fine with it.

  • Extended Ball Mount For Jeep Wrangler To Clear Oversized Spare Tire
    For your 2013 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited I recommend the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80232. This ball mount has a length of 15-3/4"(400mm) from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole. That will give you an additional 3-15/16"(100mm) over your current ball mount.

  • Weight Distribution with Longer Shank Recommendation for Intech Sol Horizon Camper
    We have longer weight distribution shanks like the Curt part # C17122 which measures 14 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the vertical holes of the shank. You're pretty lucky your trailer manufacturer said it was okay to use a WD with the aluminum frame. Typically they do not.

  • Do Longer Ball Mounts Have Lower Towing Capacities
    Typically the ball mounts that are longer or have large drops/rises have lower capacities than ones that are more standard in dimensions. This is designed to help take care of the capacity reduction question you mentioned since there isn't a hard and fast rule that applies for the scenarios you mentioned. For example, the Brophy ball mount part # BM20 that you mentioned has a capacity of 10,000 lb trailer weight and 1,000 lb tongue weight.

  • Availability of Extender for Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution Hitch
    Using the hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer by 50 percent. But if you have a 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver and use the Titan hitch extension # RP45292 the tongue weight capacity will not be reduced. If you do not have a 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch you might be able to add one but I need to know your vehicle make, model and year. Please note, when using a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is...

  • How to Gain Trailer Towing Clearance with Owl Vans Cargo Box on a 2022 Sprinter Van
    Since this is towing, using an extension would mean the weight capacity is reduced, BUT you might be able to get away with a ball mount that has an extra long shank: - Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80232 This guy has a weight capacity of 6,000 lbs, offers a 3/4" Rise/2" Drop, and measures 15-.3/4" from the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball hole so it at least gets you closer to the edge of the Owl Vans Cargo Box you're using. Aside from this, I'm afraid there aren't any other...

  • Ball Mount and Ball Needed To Tow Utility Trailer with 2011 Toyota RAV4
    In order to determine which ball mount you need you will need to take some measurements. Measure the distance from the top of your receiver opening down to the ground. Then with the utility trailer sitting on the jack so that it is perfectly level, measure the distance from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. The difference between these measurements is the amount of rise or drop you will need. If the receiver height is taller than the trailer coupler height, you will need a ball mount...

  • How Can Longer Ball Mount Not Reduce Hitch Weight Capacity
    Technically any additional length is going to increase leverage on the trailer hitch. But there isn't an exact standard length ball mount so going super technical on how much the force multiplied when the ball mount is beyond a certain length is just not something our manufacturers do. So when you combine that with fact that most ball mounts are not that much longer than others the tongue weight capacity of a vehicle is not reduced when using a longer ball mount like the part # 80232....

  • Long Ball Mount to Flat Tow a 2016 Fiat 500 and Carry Bikes at the Same Time Using an Adapter
    Brophy Ball Mount # BM20 measures 13-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole which is much longer than standard ball mounts. Provided that the tow bar you are using to tow the 2016 Fiat couples to a ball this is the best ball mount for your application. I have linked a video review of this ball mount for you.

  • Does Using Longer Ball Mount Reduce Hitch Weight Capacity
    Longer ball mounts like the part # BM20 that you referenced are a great way to add clearance at the rear of the tow vehicle like you are looking for without diminishing towing capacity. So, you can use this ball mount and not have to worry about losing any capacity. It's when you use a hitch adapter/extender that causes the capacity to be reduced.

  • Will Long Ball Mount Allow Towing Travel Trailer with Tail Gate Down
    The Brophy extra long 2-Inch Ball Mount # BM20 provides 13-1/4-inches from its hitch pin hole to the center of its ball hole. Without knowing the nature of the trailer's front (is it flat or tapered into a V-shape, for example) or your particular truck I cannot say for sure if you'll have enough turning clearance with your tailgate down. You can estimate this yourself by placing the unhitched truck and trailer near each other at an angle, to simulate a turn, and measuring the length of...

  • Recommended Hitch Extension 2012 Chevy Silverado 3500 With In Bed Camper Towing a Trailer
    You can use the Reese Hitch Box Extension and Reducer for Titan 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches, 24" - 34" Long # RP45292 but it can only be used at the 34" or 24" length. Drilling an additional hole for a hitch pin will void the warranty of the extension and also leave you with an unknown capacity. In order to be able to reach the 6,000 lb capacity you would need to use a weight distribution system because 34" would be the only option. You also need to be aware of your tongue weight.

  • Can Extra Long Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80232 Use 2-5/16 inch Hitch Ball
    Yes, you can install a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball on the platform of the Hidden Hitch ball mount part # 80232 that you referenced. You'd just need a ball like the Curt 2-5/16 inch hitch ball part # C40005 which is designed to fit 1 inch diameter ball holes like what that ball mount has.

  • Can Longer Brophy Ball Mount be Used to Increase Distance Between Trailer and Tow Vehicle
    Yes, longer ball mounts like the part # BM20 that you referenced are designed to do exactly what you described. They add length to the distance between the hitch and the trailer. As long as you stay under the capacity of this ball mount you would be fine. This ball mount has a 10,000 lb capacity with a 1,000 lb tongue weight capacity.

  • Will Adding a Longer Ball Mount to Towing Setup Make Trailer Easier to Back Up
    Going with a longer ball mount or a hitch extender will make backing up the trailer maybe slightly easier, but realistically it's not going to magically fix the issues you are having. The trailer will react a little bit slower when you turn the wheel of the vehicle as you are reversing it but probably not enough that you'll become considerably more confident backing up the trailer. Best advice is to try and line up the right angle you need to back up into while the vehicle is moving forward...

  • Should Truck with Camper in Bed Have Ball Mount Behind Rear of Camper or Under
    To answer your first question about whether or not the pivot point needs to be beyond the rear bumper/camper of the vehicle when flat towing the answer would be yes. This allows changes in elevation like you mentioned to not cause you to risk hitting the tow bar on the bottom of the camper. You also have to consider that when you add length to a ball mount the movement of the ball mount is exaggerated around corners as well which means the angle will become more severe which also affects...

    The longest fixed ball mount we offer is the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount part # 80232 which measures 15-3/4" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. Please note, it does have a 6,000 lb weight capacity and can be used in either the rise position at 3/4" or drop position at 2". In order to add a 2" hitch ball you'd need the part # C40004. I have attached for you below a list of other possible options with long shanks if the above won't work.

  • Extra Long Ball Mount Recommendation for 2" Hitch Receiver and 2-5/16" Hitch Ball
    It sounds like you're needing a longer ball mount like the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80232. This measures 15-3/4" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hole where the hitch ball is installed which should be pretty close to 12" longer than a standard ball mount. This can be used as a 3/4" rise or 2" drop depending on what you're needing. For a ball mount you can use the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # 63847 and then I also recommend using an anti-rattle hitch pin like the Let's...

There aren't hitches that have sway control built into them but you could use a sway control kit like the Reese part # 83660.

So as an example if you are looking to carry a 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874 with your truck. Say your truck and receiver are rated for a maximum tongue weight of 750lbs.
