Have a 18" pontoon boat that we drive 1/2 block to the launch with our CRV. The trailer even with 12" tires was just too high to launch and retireve the 'toon. It came to me that I had a sailboat with a "tongue' extension that slid out. Next best thing..... the extension! It worked pretty well! We were able to back farther into the water and get the 'toon off. This year the high water at the St Lawerence made it impossible to launch, (rented a slip), but I am going to get a longer extension. If you have a steep ramp, need a bit more "tongue" to launch.... get this! it has worked well for us! 694693


Comments
Well, 1 year, but, really a few months of, boating season. The extension work well! coupled with 12 tires on the toon trailer, Im able to back down and not float it off, but close to, getting the toon off. Its not bad when pulling it to the ramp, I dont think Id pull it a LONG way with this set up, but, seeing how the boat weights more than the CRV, I never do! The perfect cure for a making a CRV do a trucks job!

This long ball mount is difficult to find and exactly what I needed. This extended the ball away from the rear bumper of my new BMW X-7; decreased chance of trailer banging rear bumper when connecting up; when connected, much more room to open rear hatches not to hit boat bow or trailer winch and access rear of SUV; rig back a bit farther, launching just a bit sooner which keeps rear wheels a bit farther from water edge. 920037

I have a utility trailer whose tongue jack would be in the way of opening my tailgate when the trailer was attached. This Ball mount with the longer distance from ball to hitch pin more than successfully moved the trailer back so that I have clearance to open the Tailgate. It also appears to be of a slightly heavier guage steel for the longer distance. It works Great I would definitely suggest to anyone needing these dimensions 891790

Ask the Experts about this Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Can I Extend My Hitch Without Using TorkLift Hitch and SuperTruss Extension
    The only other extension option we carry besides the Torklift SuperTruss extender that does not cut your tongue weight in half is an extra long ball mount. Traditional extensions such as part # C45796 cut the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on the truck in half because it creates extra leverage and movement in your towing setup. The only extra long ball mount we offer that is long enough for your setup is the Hidden Hitch ball mount part # 80232 at 15-3/4 inches long. That length...

  • Will The Hidden Hitch Ball Mount 80232 Work With Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack
    Yes, The Hidden Hitch Ball Mount part # 80232 is ideal for the Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack part # C18013. The Curt C18013 requires a 2 inch ball mount so this one is perfect and measures 15-3/4 inches Long so it provides a lot of clearance. Our extra long ball mounts only come in 2 inches but if you are asking about the 2 inch drop then we do carry the Curt Ball Mount part # D-28 that measures 14-1/4" Long with a 6 inch drop. If you need less drop than 6 inch we carry, 13 inch Long Curt...

  • Recommended Hitch Ball for Hidden Hitch Ball Mount 80232
    The Hidden Hitch Ball Mount part # 80232 has a 1" diameter ball hole so you will need to use a hitch ball with 1" diameter shank, the Curt Hitch Ball part # 40038 for 2" or part # C40007 for 2-5/16".

  • Does Using Extra Long Ball Mount Affect Towing Experience or Capacity
    A longer ball mount like the Hidden Hitch # 80232 that you referenced will indeed put a bit more stress on the trailer hitch/rear of tow vehicle due to that added leverage, but not to the point of it having an actual negative impact on towing or cutting into your overall towing capacity. The manufacturers of this particular ball mount have determined through testing and physics well over my head that it will maintain the full weight capacity of your existing hitch, along with the tongue...

  • Longest Trailer Ball Mount Available
    The longest fixed ball mount we carry is the Hidden Hitch # 80232. It's 15-3/4 inches from the hitch pin hole to the ball hole. It provides 3/4 inches of rise or 2 inches of drop. For a hitch ball to fit the ball mount use # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch, # 63845 for a 2 inch, or # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch.

  • Can Hidden Hitch 80232 Ball Mount Be Used With an 18 Inch Hitch Extender
    You can use the Reese 18 inch extender # RP11004 and the # 80232 extended length ball mount together, but using the extender will lower your hitch tongue weight and towing capacity by 35%. If your Class V OEM hitch receiver is 2-1/2 inch, you'll also need a reducer like # C45405

    For your 2001 Ram 3500 Dually 4x4 with Lance 11.5 camper, I recommend the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80232. This extra long ball mount will allow you to put the hitch ball center 15-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch receiver. It will give you 11-1/4 inches from that hitch pin center to the closest edge of the ball platform piece. This is rated for 6,000 lbs. I recommend the # 63845 for a 2 inch hitch ball or # 19261 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. If...

  • Does a Trailer Hitch Extender Reduce the Gross Trailer Weight Capacity or Just the Tongue Weight
    The use of a hitch extender reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. So if the trailer hitch is rated for 1,000 pounds tongue weight it would be reduced to just 500 pounds tongue weight capacity when using an extension. It doesn't reduce the gross trailer weight capacity, only the tongue weight. Some extenders also have the additional restriction of flat towing only (towing a vehicle with all 4 wheels down) and cannot be used with trailers. Since the use...

  • Does Going with a Longer Ball Mount Make Trailer Harder to Back Up
    Going with a longer ball mount for your situation would be a great solution. The only real downside is that you might be more likely to bang your shin against the ball mount since it will be sticking out further, but the increased length does not make for difficulty backing the trailer up or decreased backing up angle. If anything the added length will make backing up the trailer a bit easier as the trailer will be less quick to jackknife and the added length if anything would allow...

  • Will Extra Long Ball Mount Reduce Towing or Tongue Weight Capacity
    The Hidden Hitch # 80232 ball mount will not reduce your vehicle's towing capacity like an adapter or extender will. The ball mount's max towing capacity is 6,000 pounds and its max tongue weight is 600 pounds. You should check the capacity of your hitch and your 2005 Jeep Liberty for their max capacities because the lowest rated component will be what determines how much you can tow.

  • Longer Ball Mount Recommendation for Towing Trailer with Tailgate Down
    For situations like yours the best solution is a longer mount to get the extra length since the use of a hitch extender cuts the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. For example, check out the Hidden Hitch ball mount part # 80232 which has a drop of 2 inches and is 15-3/4" from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole.

    I see by the records that you have the Draw-Tite, part # 75270 for your Odyssey. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole and the back of the rear bumper is 6-1/2 inches. We do offer extra long ball mounts that are designed to fit a 2 inch receiver opening. I have attached a helpful article that explains how to select the right ball mount you can check out.

  • Can Curt Dual Receiver Adapter # D-192 Be Used to Tow and Support a Cargo Carrier on 2011 Jeep
    Use of any hitch adapter or extender, such as the Curt Dual 2-Inch Receiver Tube Adapter, part # D-192, will reduce your hitch capacity by 50 percent. This reduction in hitch weight capacity occurs as a result of the change in the geometry of how the weight load is applied to the hitch. In the case of your 2011 Jeep Wrangler all of the 2-inch hitch receivers we offer all have a 350-lb tongue weight rating; with this cut in half by use of an adapter/extender, you would have only 175-lb...

  • Why Do Longer Ball Mounts Not Cut Hitch Capacity but Hitch Extenders Do
    You are correct. I know it seems somewhat conter-intuitive, but an extended ball mount does not cut the capacity of the vehicle hitch yet a hitch extender does do that. Reason being the hitch extenders are typically much longer than the longer ball mounts and they have quite a bit more movement due to the two connection points. Those being the extender to the hitch, and the extender to the ball mount. The fixed ball mount # 80232 is longer at 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin...

  • Will Using a Hitch Extension or Extra Long Ball Mount Help When Backing Up Trailer
    Using a Hitch Extension or Extra Long Ball Mount, like the # 80232, will give you added clearance between the tow vehicle and your trailer which can be helpful when maneuvering but I can't say that it will actually give you more control or slow anything down. Backing up a trailer is an art that I have yet to master and unfortunately other than disconnecting the trailer from your vehicle and using a product like the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover, # STC-V211, practice is...

    We do have a solution for you to be able to carry bikes on your Coleman popup camper but we do not have a trailer hitch that will work with your camper. The only bumper mount hitch we offer for a 2 x 4 bumper will not work with a C-channel bumper. I recommend using a Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack like part # SR1020. This rack attaches to the roof of your camper and you can attach crossbar mounted bike carriers. Since it is mounted on the roof of the camper you don't have to worry about ground...

  • Hitch Extender For Adding Enough Space Between Trailer and SUV to Open Rear Hatch
    You can do that if you wish, but be aware that using an extension lowers the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The further the load gets extended away from the hitch, the more leverage is applied. This leverage can damage the hitch or cause it or its attachment points to the vehicle to fail. If you can get by with the reduced capacity, I'd recommend the 12 inch # MT70024, the 14 inch # C45795 or the 18 inch # HE18. An extra long ball mount might be a good alternative. If you click...

    For a standard ball mount the part # 80232 is very long at 11-1/4" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the ball platform piece. For a longer tri-ball mount the part # BWBMTT31004 has 8 inches from hitch pin hole to 1-7/8 inch ball, 9-1/2 inches when in the 2 inch ball setup, and 7 inches when used with 2-5/16 inches.

  • Does Using Long Hidden Hitch Ball Mount part # 80232 Cut Capacity of Hitch at all
    This is a very good question, but when you use a longer ball mount you do not cut the capacity of the hitch in half like what happens when you use a hitch extender. Reason being an extender adds quite a bit more length and leverage plus quite a bit more movement.

  • Can Longer Ball Mount Be Used Without Reducing Trailer Hitch Capacity On 2011 Ford Escape
    A longer ball mount is always a better option that using an extender for the reason you mentioned. Using an adapter reduces trailer hitch capacity by fifty percent. A ball mount like part # 80232 will give you 15-3/4 inches distance from center of hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. For a little shorter ball mount you can check out part # BM20. This ball mount measures 13-1/4 inches from center of hitch pin hole to center of ball hole. And for a ball mount that has...

  • Side-Mount Trailer Jack to Avoid Tailgate Clearance Issue
    Usually the best fix for tailgate-to-jack clearance issues is an extra-long ball mount that will move the trailer further away from the tailgate, such as # 80232, but since you are using a weight distribution/sway control hitch you cannot use this solution. So the best option in your case is to change to a side-frame-mounted jack instead of the tongue-mounted jack. The linked page displays all side-mount jacks, both jacks with caster wheels like # MT70149 and jacks with foot plates like...

  • 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...

  • Is the Tongue Weight Capacity of Ball Mount 80232 Reduced by 50 Percent Like Other Adapters
    The Ball Mount Class III, # 80232, does not reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch. The tongue weight capacity of just this ball mount is 600 pounds. But you need to stay within the limits of your hitch and, ultimately, your vehicle. Check your owners manual to find the towing specifications of your 2009 Nissan Murano.

This unit also features an extra long shank that measures 15-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole.

However, the draw back of using a hitch extender is it will cut your hitch's over all capacity by 50 percent.

  • Will Super Extra Long Ball Mount 80232 Decrease the Tongue Weight Capacity of a Trailer Hitch
    No. Because ball mount # 80232 is not an adapter or extension, if used directly in the trailer hitch it will not decrease the tongue weight capacity enough (though it may decrease it only slightly) to be an issue. You will need to make sure that the combined trailer tongue weight, bike rack, and bikes does not exceed the 500 pound tongue weight capacity of the hitch. Also check the vehicle owners manual for its tongue weight rating and if lower go by the lower rating.
