E Series Dims

The Fastway Flash E Series ball mount is strong, durable, and easy on the eyes, making it the best of both worlds. It's solid, aircraft-grade aluminum construction is durable, rust resistant, and sturdy enough to last for years to come. With a polished mirror finish, this ball mount will make any vehicle look fantastic.

The adjustable ball height lets you tow a variety of trailers with different tongue heights. Having both a 2" ball and a 2-5/16" ball allows for even more versatility, making this the ultimate go-to ball mount if you own multiple trailers.

Changing Ball Height and Replacing Balls

To adjust the height of the ball, remove the pin so that you are able to slide the ball platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Re-insert the pin once you have found the correct height and replace the clip.

Switching the hitch ball is just as easy. Simply remove the pin holding the ball platform in place and slide the platform off of the shank. Flip the platform upside down so that the ball you want to use is on top. Then slide the ball platform back onto the shank and replace the pin.

It’s a great product and performed as I needed it. I need the two inch ball and the 2 1/4 in ball scraped the street as I was backing out. There should be a way to take the ball you don’t use off!

- FA42-00-2800

Nice looking and very well made. I will be hauling a 24’ enclosed trailer with combine weight of 6000 pounds. I am replacing a one piece steel unit that was showing signs of bending. This should be safer.

- FA42-00-2800

I bought a new truck and needed a receiver for the truck. I am really pleased with the hitch I bought. It looks good on the truck and pulls my stock trailer like a champ. I love the fact that it is adjustable because it fits all 4 of my trailers heights with quick and easy adjustment. This is a great looking and working product.

What a great product. Works on all my trailers. Adjusts quickly, and handles all the weight that I have put on it. Still works and looks great. Have had many compliments on my hitch.
Jack A - 06/13/2018

- FA42-00-2800

Great looking and strong. I almost hate to hook a trailer to the flawless finish. Only issue is that when the ball is mounted on the front of the drop to get it out of the way when not towing it will only fit into the bottom pin hole which leaves the ball significantly lower than the drop mount. Should have been able to fit into the second from bottom hole to protect the ball and give more ground clearance

- FA42-00-2800

Great product...

Excellent in all areas. Great product!

Very pleased with adjustable hitch and service! It was reasonably priced with free shipping. The hitch allowed me to properly adjust height and travel level with my trailer. I plan to be a repeat costumer.

- FA42-00-2800

First, I'm very pleased with the level of customer service from etrailer.com. Site is easy to navigate, ordering was simple, and the item was shipped on time. The hitch itself is a thing of beauty. Well-designed, solid, bright and shiny. I put it on my truck to see if it fits as expected, which it does. I haven't attached my trailer yet, but I can see that it will work as advertised.

- FA42-00-2800

Great used all year long no problems.

- FA42-00-2800

Was easy to order and delivered third day. Great looking and light to carry compared to steel hitches. Great purchase at a fair price.

- FA42-00-2800

Very solid construction. i was afraid it would rattle but it doesn't . Easy to change ball size and height for my different trailers

Haven't used it yet (just got it yesterday), but it looks great! Shipping came when promised, good communication from etrailer, thank you very much!

- FA42-00-2800

Looks great and well made, looking forward to using it with my trailer.

This worked perfectly with my 6" lifted Nissan Titan. Overly built but with peace in mind when towing your toys.

Ask the Experts about this Fastway Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Can Fastway Flash E Series Adjustable Ball Mount be Used with Sway Control Device
    I do have a solution for you, however, as you referenced in your question, an adjustable ball mount like the Fastway Flash E Series # FA42-00-2800 will not be able to accept a sway control kit such as the Reese # 83660. This ball mount does not have a platform for the sway control bar to attach to and using a bracket like # RP26003 will not work because the hitch ball cannot be removed. If you are needing an adjustable ball mount that you can use with a sway control bar, I recommend...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Use with Fastway Flash E-Series Ball Mount
    Since the Flash E Series Ball Mounts # FA42-00-2800 have aluminum, solid shanks you would have to use an Immbolizer like part # BX88224 to get rid of the movement. I attached a review video for this anti-rattle device as well.

  • Recommended Hitch Lock and Ball Mount Compatible with 3 Inch Hitch with Reducer Sleeve
    The Flash E Series Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls # FA42-00-2800 has a 5/8 inch pin hole diameter. I believe you will be able to use the Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set for Flash E Series Ball Mounts # FA86-00-3660 for a locking combination. The hitch lock is 3-5/8 inches from inside to inside so as long as your 3 inch receiver is under that 3-5/8 at the outer edges you will be fine. You can alternatively use the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Lock - 3" Hitch...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for a 2016 Ram 1500
    In order to find the correct ball mount for your 2016 Ram 1500 you are going to need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside edge on your truck's trailer hitch receiver tube opening and then compare that to the distance from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your trailer while level. The difference between these two measurements will give you the correct amount of rise/drop you need to look for in a ball mount which I have attached a list of for you. With that being...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-350
    It sounds like from your history on our site that you're looking for an adjustable ball mount for your 2017 Ford F-350. Of the three ball mounts you looked at, parts # MD206, # FA49-00-5625,and # FA42-00-2825 I like the Fastway # FA42-00-2825 because it has a slightly higher amount of travel in the rise and drop but more importantly is completely aluminum causing it to be lighter and resistant to corrosion. The # FA42-00-2825 fits a 2-1/2 inch receiver so if your truck has 2 inch...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount With 2-5/16" Hitch Ball for 7,000 lb Trailer
    So the answer to the exact adjustable ball mount you need really depends on the amount of rise or drop you require. If you aren't sure how to measure for that, I've added a link to a help article detailing how to determine that. With that in mind, I'll give you some options, and I also want to point out that adjustable ball mounts do come with both a 2" hitch ball and 2-5/16" hitch ball, though if you never need the 2" ball you can simply store it away. I recommend the Flash E Series...

  • Compatibility of a Hitch for a 1972 Chevrolet K Series Truck
    The Curt # C15511 hitch is the confirmed fit for a 1972 Chevrolet K Series truck if you have the 8 foot bed and the deep drop rear bumper. The measurement from the top of the tube to the mounting flange is 8-1/32 inches. The extended length was to make sure the hitch would clear the bumper. If you have the standard bumper, then the Curt Hitch # C14082 is the confirmed fit. If # C15511 can be installed on the standard bumper model, then there will be a large gap between the bumper...

  • 2014 Cadillac Escalade Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation
    Your 2014 Cadillac Escalade would most likely not have a 2-1/2 inch hitch installed on it, but if it did the part # FA42-00-2825 would work. Most likely you have a 2 inch hitch installed though and would need the # FA42-00-2800 which is the same thing but for the 2 inch hitch size. The larger hitch size is normally only seen on heavy duty trucks.

  • Aluminum Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation that has 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch Hitch Ball
    To get an aluminum adjustable ball mount that can have a 1-7/8 inch ball on it you would need to replace the balls of the # FA42-00-2800 with the part # DTBM23 and then you would have a 1-7/8 inch ball and a 2 inch ball. There isn't a version of the 180 ball mounts that has both sizes you wanted.

    It sounds like you are looking for an adjustable ball mount to allow hitching your Terra Class A motorhome to your trailer, which is about 8-inches lower to the ground. The linked article explains how to measure to determine the correct fixed ball mount, or you can select an adjustable one if you prefer, such as # FA42-00-2800.

    The Flash E Series HD 18K Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2825 is intended for a 2-1/2-inch hitch but we do have similar adjustable ball mounts that will fit the 2-inch hitch on your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado. Do note that these will not have the same 18K weight rating since they are for use in lower capacity 2-inch hitches.

  • What is the Rise of Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount # AMSC10
    Because there isn't an 8-3/4 inch rise category for ball mounts the Convert-A-Ball mount # AMSC10 is lumped into the 9 inch rise category. The actual rise is 8-3/4 inches. In the grand scheme of things that 1/4 inch difference isn't going to cause you any problems and the trailer will be more level than most other setups I have seen. If exactly 9 inches is required your best option is adjustable ball mount # FA42-00-2800 which has a maximum rise of 9 inches. I have linked a video review...

  • Differences Between Fastway E Series and Self Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount
    The Fastway E-Series # FA42-00-2800 and the # DT-ALBM6800-3S self locking ball mount have the same 10K capacity (which depends on the ball used) and the same 8 inch drop or 9 inch rise. The self locking ball mount has a built in lock that secures the ball mount in the receiver hitch. There's an additional lock that secures the ball and the ball platform to the ballmount, preventing either from being removed without the key.
