Gives me the extra 6" extension I need so that the rear liftgate on my van can open without hitting the trailer jack, or the spare tire which I carry on the trailer tongue. This is a VERY solid piece, would easily handle far more than my 300lb tongue weight. As usual etrailer delivered exactly as promised. 231046


Comments

its been hung on the back for a year. I never take it off.All kinds of weather, including Hurricane Matthew, Totally bulletproof.I have only one complaint, I bang my shins into it once in a whilewhen loading stuff in the back. But thats me, not the hitch.In a year its pulled 3 different boats, 2 different trailersand, in a pinch, anchor point for the chain while felling a tree.

This product allowed me to open my deck lid on the tow vehicle while hitched. I love it, was delivered promptly and is excellent quality, could not love it more! Also increased capacity from 600/6000 to 1000/10000 lbs. while not needed I like the safety of the margin. 147646

This worked out perfectly. Had a flat bed put on one of our pickups, but the frame mounted hitch sat too far back from the new dock bumper. This ball mount moved it out just right so we didn't have to put a new receiver on the truck. 102524

I purchased a Ranch Hand rear bumper for my 2500HD but wanted to retain the use of a receiver hitch. The ball mount would need to extend 8" from the pin hole to even reach the edge of the bumper. This BM29 ball mount works out perfect. The welds look great and the finish is just fine. The only complaint I have is they gained a little length by moving the pin hole a little closer to the end shortening the insertion amount slightly. Not a big deal, it is just noticable next to the other mounts I have at the house. 60696

ordered 2 items for new Rpod-- searched several auto stores and internet sites and just became frustrated. we needed a certain hook up for the trailer lights (pulled up every place that sells items like this and could not find it )and a hitch that would clear the tire on the jeep because ours was too short. After searching on Etrailer it became easy. The web site is easy to use and even shows videos about every product. They were shipped in just a few days and the price was better than a retail store. 332053

I had never towed anything before and recently bought a small pop up camper. The Ball mount was to short for my 2011 Jeep Wrangler and I had to remove the spare tire each time to correctly hitch. This Ball mount is the perfect solution. Just the correct length to hitch up with out any more problems. Also better made and less expensive then the dealer sold me. By reading the questions asked by customers I was able to pick out the correct product. Great Web Site and Excellent service. 144540

We got this so we could open our tailgate without having to unhitch the trailer. It works great! Product is good, service was fast... it made our trip to Alaska much happier (our dog needs the tailgate lowered so she can jump in and out for potty breaks). We still need to have the truck and trailer pretty much straight in line with each other... if there is too much angle left or right, we can't fully lower the tailgate. We drive a 2015 Ford F-150. 398116

I like a longer receiver for many reasons, such as little more room back there so my trailer doesn't immediately hit my SUV bumper or license plate as I back into it, and a longer length helps protect the rear of my SUV in busy/congested public parking lots where there is lots of bumper touching. My SUV's back up camera with a longer hitch makes for a 100% hitch and ball line up every time. And if you do go longer, just watch out for your shins... 118006

I needed the extended hitch for a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. With a standard length hitch when not on level ground I could not hook up or disconnect my utility trailer because the flip up coupler lock would hit the bottom of the rear-mounted spare. This extended hitch takes care of that by bringing the ball away from the tire allowing a flip up coupler lock to be completely vertical and disengaged 89017

I needed a longer hitch to accommodate my Rock Tamer mud flaps. This ball mount hitch is the perfect length, well made, and sturdy. etrailer.com has always delivered my orders quickly, and well packed. And etrailer.com is good to give me an email notification of receipt of my order, shipping of my order, and then to follow through to ensure that I received my shipment. Thanks etrailer.com! 101017

Excellent, heavy duty, well built. HOWEVER, the width of the lip where the ball mounts is over a 1/4" wider than standard. This means standard accessories such as stabilizers and backup guides will not be able to be used with this ball mount. 72789

No change. I had to have a custom ball mount made because of the limitations of your product and the complete lack of anything else.

This drawbar is exactly what I needed! My truck tailgate would previously hit the tongue jack on one of my trailers. This long drawbar gives the extra clearance I need. Quality is top notch. The notifications from etrailer was great! Shipping was unbelievably fast! I actually received it within 2 days of ordering and a day earlier than originally scheduled! 32111

Product is just what I was looking for to allow me to haul my daughters motorcycle in the bed of my truck and pull my trailer with the truck tailgate down. Communication with etrailer.com was perfect! They let me know when my order confirmed, when my order shipped and followed up with me on my satisfaction. Will purchase from etrailer.com again and again. 98831

This was exactly what I needed. It will allow me to open the tailgate on my truck with my trailer attached without hitting the trailer jack.

Powder coating was damaged on arrival. etrailer.com made offer to make it right. I respect that and thank them. If you don't expect to have a scratch free ball adapter the price and function is as good as it gets with this one. Welds look great and my bet is this will hold up well with some added paint now and then. 13703

I have a 2010 Range Rover and couldn't find a ball mount long enough to get the ball properly away from the bumper. Even Range Rover's "solution" didn't work.

Received the draw bar in record time. Sturdy construction. Should give me the distance to drop my P/U Truck tailgate. When I get my Ram back from the Collision Repair ( just 6 weeks old and a lovley lady changed lanes into me ) and get a chance to hook it up, I will get a pic. 95112

This is exactly what I needed to get my hitch to extend past my spare tire on my Jeep Liberty. It could have been 2" longer, since the locking mechanism on the trailer is still tight to the spare. This was the best product that I could find to solve the problem. 350272

Good service from e-trailer as usual. The extra length allowed me to lower the trundra tail gate with the Escape trave trailr hitched up. Should alse allow for a sharper maximum angle when backing the trailer up before equipment contact. 92732

  • Choosing Extended Length Ball Mount to Provide Maximum Clearance Between Trailer and Tow Vehicle
  • If the trailer has an A-frame tongue on it, you should be in good shape unless you need to make a very tight 90 degree turn. We offer several different ball mounts in extended lengths. The longest ball mounts typically have a lower weight capacity. You will be best served getting the longest ball mount you can that has a capacity that exceeds the loaded weight of your trailer plus its load. If the trailer weight is not known, you can use a scale at a truck stop and have it weighed for...

  • Trailer Hitch Extension for Towing a Trailer with a Truck Bed Camper in a 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually
  • If 24 inches was fine before and the new camper is 8 inches longer than the previous one then it would make sense that you would need an extension that is at least 32 inches long. The only extensions we have that are this long require that you have a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver. You would use # RP45292 that you have referenced. If you can tell me what type of trailer hitch you have I can determine if it will work or if you will need to add a proper hitch to get it to work. Otherwise...

The primary difference between the two units is the ball hole diameter. The # BH20 has a 1-1/4 inch ball hole diameter, which will be compatible with a hitch ball with this same...

  • Long and Short Ball Mount Options for a 2012 Toyota RAV4 Towing a Boat and Boat Trailer
  • From the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole on ball mount # 2923 it measures 8-1/2 inches. This should put the ball about flush with the back of the spare tire on a 2012 Toyota RAV4 based on installations we have done. Measure your specific vehicle to be certain. Boat trailers generally have a coupler at the end of a long pole tongue. And the shape of most boats combined with the pole tongue would allow you to easily make turns without any interference issues....

  • Recommendations for Extending a Cargo Trailer 12 Inches from the Tow Vehicle
  • I have an extension option, but I do not recommend using a hitch extender like part # MT70024. Hitch extenders will reduce the weight capacity of the hitch by half. They also add another piece to the setup which allows for additional movement. Instead, I recommend looking at an extra long or a super extra long ball mount. An extra long ball mount, like part # BM20, has more than enough capacity to tow your trailer and it measures 13-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to...

  • Weight Capacity of Brophy Ball Mount # BM20

I verified these specs with Brophy and they are also available on their website if you wish. With this ball mount you can use a hitch ball with a 1-inch shank diameter, such as the 2-5/16-inch Diameter # 63847 or the 1-7/8-inch Diameter # 19261.

  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75703, will fit the 2011 Ford E-250 as long as it is not a Superwagon. The rounded bumper should not pose a problem. A step bumper would necessitate a ball mount longer than the recommended # 2923 which is 8-1/2 inches long. Part # BM20 would be a good fit. If you so have a Superwagon model, you would need Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75703. Again a longer ball mount would be needed with a step bumper.

Removing some of the powder coat is acceptable provided you do not also remove any metal. What I recommend is looking for a ball mount with the more rounded corners.
