Video Transcript for Hidden Hitch Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 80232 Review

Today, we're reviewing Part Number 80232 from Hidden Hitch. This is a Class 3 Ball Mount with a 3-1/4 inch rise or a 2-inch drop and a super extra long shank. The towing capacity rating is 6,000 pounds and the tongue weight is rated at 600 pounds. As you can see the shank is hollow and it is cut at an angle. It makes it a little easier for you to slide this into your receiver. This uses a ball with a 1-inch shank diameter.

There is a 3-1/4 inch rise from the top of the shank to the top of the ball mount platform and a 2-inch drop from the top of the shank to the ball mount platform. Let's see how this measures up, from the center of the hitch pinhole, which is here, to the beginning of the ball platform is 11 inches and it is 16 inches from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of the ball hole. This will accommodate Class 3, that's 2 by 2 inch ball mount accessories. And that's it for Part Number 80232, the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount Class 3 with a 3/4 inch rise and a 2-inch drop.

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. 707871

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. 35846

The biggest issue I have is that the video on the receiver said the rise can go up or down. I try to put the ball in the hole in the rise position and it does not seat all the way the way it does in the down position. Not sure if I can Seat by drawing down the nut or not . 504052

Brad, thank you for your review. The ball should seat once you torque it down to the spec in the hitch ball installation instructions.

Hard to find item found We have a home with a large back yard with the access layed out so,that only a single vehicle can make the turn around the corner without a trailer,even utility or boattrailer.I had a front hitch reciever on my Suburban and I wanted a long hitch extender for easier handling..It helped even more with the use of my Polaris Ranger,which is short enough and powerful enough to make it around the corner but its hitch receiver is practically on the real axle and the control of the trailer especially backing it is very poor.Instead of an extremely long trailer tongue this extension helps it too. The extender is perfect,nicely finished and arrived within a few days.I want to mention,that the price was very reasonable even with shipping. 5021

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

Just the solution I was looking for! My Jeep's spare tire hits the utility trailer's hitch latch, preventing me from opening the tailgate. I could flip the old drawbar over so the hitch is lower, but then the trailer would not be level while on the hitch. (maybe just aesthetics, but I am a little picky about stuff). An additional bonus is that this helps make backing the trailer up a little easier since it put more distance between the tow vehicle and the trailer's axle. Etrailer was the only place I could find the extended length drawbar, the price is excellent! 155193

A quality insert. I have had trouble finding an insert with the rise and drop plus the length of this insert. The weld is very good. I needed the extra length this insert provides because I have steps on the front of my boat trailer to allow me to get into the boat. A regular length inner did not provide the clearance needed when making a slightly tight turn. The bottom step would hit the truck bumper and cause damage that resulted in $1300.00 repair. The service ETrailer provided was outstanding. I placed the order on their web page late in the day . Shortly I received a reply they would be filling the order. The next morning I received a phone call telling an additional item I wanted was back ordered to them. Asked if it was okay to delay shipment until it came in. I agreed to that. They kept me informed to the status and that they were still keeping track of my order. When they were informed of an additional delay on getting me the item they informed me of the additional delay. I asked them to cancel the item and to ship the remaining items. They said they would and I got the shipment the next day. Plus I asked them to let me know when the back order item would be available so I could order it. They said they would. Excellent customer service and quality product a great combination. 236425

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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Extra Long Ball Mount For 2001 Ram 3500 With 11.5 Lance Camper
    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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Longer Ball Mount Recommendation for Towing Trailer with Tailgate Down

    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...

  • 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.

    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...

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.

    It sounds like there are a couple of things going on here. First, you need a ball mount with a 2 inch rise. But then it also sounds like you need a ball mount that is longer than 7 inches. The other issue is that on Class I and II hitches you are supposed to use the ball mount recommended by the hitch manufacturer or it could void the hitch warranty.

  • Will the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount Part # 80232 Reduce Towing Capacity
    The Hidden Hitch Ball Mount part # 80232 has a 6,000 lb gross trailer weight (GTW) and 600 lb tongue weight (TW) rating. Your R-Pod trailer does not exceed either of these ratings therefore it will work well for you.
