Can Longer Hidden Hitch Ball Mount be Used to Increase Distance Between Trailer and Tow Vehicle


Can I use this on my RV to move my tow vehicle further back?

Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes, longer ball mounts like the part # 80232 that you referenced are designed to do exactly what you described. They add length to the distance between the hitch and the trailer.

As long as you stay under the capacity of this ball mount you would be fine. This ball mount has a 6,000 lb capacity with a 600 lb tongue weight capacity.
