Recommended Ball Mount For 2017 Honda Pilot To Clear Bumper In Rise Position


Hello. I purchased a Curt hitch for my 2017 Pilot from you. The top of the receiver is 14inch off the road. I intend to pull U-Haul trailers that I understand have the couplers 18inch off the road. So do I need a 4inch rise ball mount?? What about standard or long length ball mounts. Thanks

For your 2017 Honda Pilot, I recommend you use an adjustable ball mount with your Curt hitch # C13146. I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10037B. This ball mount will give you the adjustability to you need to tow many trailers level, including the U-Haul trailers. It also will give you 2 pin holes, both of which will clear your bumper, but the second of which will give you a little more comfort when towing in the rise position. This ball mount is stowable when not in use to give a clean look that also will protect your shins when loading and unloading cargo from your Pilot.

I recommend using the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span # 63232 to keep your ball mount snug in the receiver and to reduce noise.
