Recommend Ball Mount For Towing Light Trailer With 2014 Prius V With Draw-Tite Hitch 24967


2014 Prius V. I want to tow a Harbor Freight light-duty flat-bed trailer with a coupler height of 14. What rise do I need?


Expert Reply:

We have not had a chance to install the Class I Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24967 but we were able to install the Draw-Tite on a 2016. The ground clearance with the hitch installed on the 2016 was 12-1/4" which will most likely be the same on your 2014 Prius V give or take if there is a tire size variance. Please keep in mind the Class I hitch is only capable of towing 200 lbs tongue weight.

You will need a ball mount with at least a 1-3/4" rise if you install the Draw-Tite on the Prius to tow the harbor freight trailer with a coupler height of 14. That is figured by subtracting the hitch height from the coupler height. For a Class I ball mount I recommend Draw-Tite Ball Mount with 2-1/8" rise part # 3593.
