Review of the Curt 1-7/8 Inch Stainless Steel Hitch Ball


What's up, everybody out of here with Etrailer today, we're gonna be taking a look at the CURT Trailer Ball. When it comes to trailer balls, there's a couple of things we need to make sure of, to make sure it's gonna work. One, this is an 1-7/8 size, so make sure to check your coupler, make sure that it is the right size, and also keep in mind the weight that you're working with. It's gonna have a 2000 pound weight limit, and with that, that's just gonna make sure that the ball's in the right size, and it's gonna be able to handle some of the weight that you have on your trailer. And then another thing that really matters is the ball mount. So we are gonna have to pick one out, and one thing we need to make sure of is of course, we wanna pair it up with the weight rating of the ball to make sure that the ball mount is not gonna be limiting us at all, and also with the plate that amounts to, it needs to be in between 3-7/8 inch to 7-7/8 inch thick, anything more than that it's not gonna work, anything less isn't gonna work either.

The shank is about two and eight inches long, and the diameter is three quarters of an inch. With the diameter, that's just gonna be the hole on your ball mount, and we wanna make sure that that is the correct size, anything bigger than that there's gonna be a lot of play and anything smaller than that, it's just not gonna fit. With this, we really wanna piece this together kind of carefully just, to make sure everything's gonna be safe on the road. So once you figure out capacities, once you figure out the right size, and then of course just make sure that the ball mount works with it, you're pretty much ready to go. It's made of stainless steel, so it is gonna resist against that rust and corrosion pretty well.

If you we're to upgrade, there are some that are machined out of one piece of metal. So those are gonna be coated as well, so that is gonna be an upgraded version of this, but when it comes to trailer balls, it just gets the job done. Pretty much, that's all there really is to know about the CURT 1-7/8 trailer ball..
