Can the Winch Mount Plate # C31010 be Used with the Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210

Question:

Hi - awesome website - I have a 2015 F150 and I tow a single Harley trailer behind it. No problem. I would like to buy this #D210 and then also add Item # C31010 to the top in order to attach a winch. That way I can winch the bike up onto the trailer in a safe manner. The trailer has a ball socket and would fit perfect on the lower section of the D210. The bike weighs about 800 lbs....and again the bike would be not be towed with the upper section, just using that to mount the winch. Thoughts? Thanks

Using the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 to tow a motorcycle trailer and the Winch Mount Plate # C31010 to pull the motorcycle onto the trailer is a great idea!

The multipurpose ball mount has a Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) rating of 7,500 lbs and a Tongue Weight (TW) rating of 750 lbs. That is a combination of both the ball mount and the 2nd receiver so you will want to make sure that you stay within those weight capacities.

I have attached some review videos for you to check out as well as some photos that give the dimensions of both products that you can use to make sure everything will fit properly.

If you don't already have a winch then just let me know what type you are looking for and I can make a recommendation.

Hey Jon - awesome. Thanks for the quick reply. Yes - a winch recommendation would be great.... electric probably 2000-3000 lb. would be plenty. Preferably something that fits the mounting holes on the winch plate without more drilling!!! Thanks - really appreciate your help

Most people who are using the Winch Mount Plate # C31010 are using it for multiple applications that are on the heavier side of things so a winch but since you are looking for a lighter duty winch I recommend going with the Bulldog Winch # BDW15017 instead.. This winch comes with a handheld controller to make it easier to use.

You may also need some extra wiring like the Bulldog Winch Wiring Kit # BDW20307 for the power and ground to reach your battery.
