Extended Ball Mount Measurements and Compatibilities for a 2012 Chrysler Town and Country


I want to use a extra supper long ball mount #80232 on a 2012 Chrysler Town and Country mini van so I dont have to back the trailer as far into the boat launch.Would that be OK.

You won't have any problems using the Super Extra Long Class III Ball Mount, # 80232, on your 2012 Chrysler Town and Country as long as you have a 2 inch receiver on your hitch. This ball mount has a 6000 lb gross trailer weight capacity and a 600 lb tongue weight capacity. Be sure you do not exceed the capacity of the lowest rated item while towing. You may also want a hitch ball, # 19247 or #19261.

If you want to know the measurement for the extension, then you will want to start from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch and measure out 16 inches. That will give you the center of the hitch ball where your trailer coupler will attach.

I have attached an article for you to check out showing how to measure for the correct ball mount rise and drop. This ball mount has a rise of 3/4 inch and a drop of 2 inches.

Ground clearance could be an issue when going over speed bumps, entering steep drives or navigating deep dips with the low position of the hitch and the extra length of the ball mount
