Ford Mustang

I occasionally have to tow my utility trailer with my Mustang Convertible. The standard drawbar barely cleared the bumper. I was very antsy when hooking up. The slightest mistake and I could do some real damage to the plastic bumper cover. This longer drawbar was just what the doctor ordered. The extra rise was also helpful. I looked everywhere local for a drawbar like this. Nobody had it. A Google search found etrailer.com and in no time I found just what I was looking and at a good price. They even gave me expedited shipping for the normal standard rate. Great product from a great supplier.

2012 Hyundai Elantra

Vehicle: 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring (5-door hatchback). Hitch: C11471 Wiring kit: Tekonsha 118473 Drawbar: C45015 Ball: C40018 See my previous review on the hitch. The wiring kit took longer than expected to install but went generally well. The eTrailer instructions are good but miss what I consider to be a critical dimension. Note the picture with the ruler; the length of the drawbar must clear the rear bumper of the vehicle. The missing dimension is the distance from the center of the ball mounting hole to the rear of what I call the ball shelf. I now know that for my drawbar, this is about 3.5 inches; however, I did not know that when I ordered the drawbar and consequently ordered a longer drawbar than was required. I went by the distance from hitch pin to ball mount but had to guess whether it would clear my bumper which I knew needed at least six inches from the hitch pin center. No harm done but it would have been useful to know the distance from the ball hole center to the rear of the shelf. My only problem is to get the torque on the ball nut to 160 lb-ft. My torque wrench does not go that high. I'll figure out something. Everything else is great!

Upgrading to Class III Hitch for Towing 3000 lb Boat with 1997 Chevy S-10

You can see the various hitches available for your vehicle by clicking on the provided link. Use the drop down menu to choose the bumper style of your S-10. The Class II hitch for a 1997 S-10 has a 3500 lb towing/300 lb tongue weight capacity, while the Class III has a 3500 lb towing/350 lb tongue weight capacity. You can certainly change to a Class III if you wish, but you will only realize a 50 lb increase in tongue weight. I would recommend you determine the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of the trailer. If you click on the link, you can see an FAQ article showing several ways of determining this. If the tongue weight of the trailer is over 300 but less than 350 lbs, you would benefit from upgrading to the Class III. If the tongue weight is greater than 350 lbs, you can move any gear stored in the boat rearward to lessen the tongue weight. If this is not possible, I would strongly recommend using a different tow vehicle for the boat. At 3000 lbs plus, you are getting pretty close to the towing capacity of the hitch. I would suggest consulting the owners manual to determine the towing capacity of the truck. I did an online search, and found mention of tow ratings anywhere from 2000-5000 lbs depending on how the truck is equipped. You will want to ensure that the towing capacity of the vehicle is not exceeded. If you are planning on towing the boat for long distances or up and down hills, and your truck has an automatic transmission, I would also suggest a transmission cooler like part # D13503. A transmission cooler provides inexpensive insurance to protect your transmission.

Ball Mount Compatibility with Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2010 Ford Mustang

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11048 is compatible with the Curt Class II Drawbar - 5" Rise - 11-5/8" Long - 3,500 lbs # C45015 you referenced. You will also need a hitch ball like # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch diameter or # A-82 for a 2 inch diameter. For trailer wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118487. This will connect behind your tail lights and then draw power directly from your battery. I've attached an article to assist with this wire routing.

Is there a Euro Style Ball Mount with a 5 Inch Rise for a 2016.5 Mazda CX-5

There are only a handful of Euro style ball mounts and like you said none of them have the amount of rise you need to tow the trailer level with your 2016.5 Mazda CX-5. The best option is to go with the regular ball mount # C45014 and a properly sized ball for the trailer coupler. If the coupler takes a 1-7/8 inch ball use # A-80. For a 2 inch ball use # A-82.

Kawasaki 3010 Mule

The C45025 provides the perfect extension and rise for my 3010 4WD Mule, allowing it to tow my wood splitter. The cargo bed can be raised to it's service (latched) position without the tailgate contacting the 2" ball I installed. This drawbar is made in the US of A, folks, of solid, not tubular, steel, and the fit and finish are excellent! Order a hitch pin, if you need one, as this bar does not come with one.

fit to hidden hitch was a little snug, but a little white grease took car of that. I wish I could have found a 1 1/4 inch drawbar with a 7 inch rise but alas it was not to be found.

Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota Corolla with Hidden Hitch

When picking out a ball mount for a Class I hitch like the part # 60345 you have to go with the ball mount that is recommended for the hitch. If the one that came with this hitch doesn't have the right rise there's nothing I can safely recommend since Draw Tite states that the use of any other ball mount will void the warranty. You will have to use the part # 3593 that came with the hitch in the rise position. This will give you 2-1/8 inches of rise. For a 2 inch ball you would need the part # 19258 or for a 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19256.

What is the Correct Ball Mount for Curt Trailer Hitch C11227 on a 1994 Toyota Celica ST

This is actually a lot easier to determine than you might think. With any Class I or II trailer hitch you will need to use the ball mount recommended in the hitch instructions. The use of any other ball mount can result in voiding the hitch warranty. The reason is that on Class I and II hitches the ball mount recommended has been tested for and approved for use as the best option for those hitch and vehicle combinations. For trailer hitch # C11227 the recommended ball mount is # C45503. This ball mount accepts a ball with a 3/4 inch diameter shank so you can use # C40018. This is a chrome ball so you are going to see some corrosion. The recommended ball, # A-82 for a 2 inch diameter is stainless steel which is much better for corrosion resistance.
