Recommended Ball Mount for 2015 Ford Escape OEM Hitch


Hi, I am looking for a ball mount with a 2inch ball for my 2015 Ford Escape with a factory hitch/towing package. I will be towing a 16foot sailboat that displaces 1100 lbs. I would estimate the total weight of the trailer around 1500 lbs. Im pretty sure I need a little drop but not sure which one. Thanks

Your 2015 Ford Escape has a Class II Trailer hitch but it looks to have a 2 inch receiver opening if you have the OEM hitch. If this is the case, then the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 8" Rise - 5,000 lbs # MT70067 with hitch ball # 63845 and pin # PC3 is a great option that is also economical.

A fixed hitch like the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 2923 is another option when using # PC3 and # 63845. It has a 2 inch drop. To confirm the correct drop needed for your trailer, I've attached an article to help you with measuring so that your trailer will tow level.

If you have a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening or need another size based on your measurements, let me know and I'd be happy to assist.
