Review of the Curt Stainless Steel 2 Inch Hitch Ball


Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Curt Trailer Ball. When it comes to trailer balls you wanna just make sure that it's the right size for your coupler. So this one's gonna be for a 2" coupler. So you just wanna make sure and check that, and it is gonna have a 3,500 pound capacity. So we also wanna make sure it's gonna be hefty enough for whatever we plan on hauling. And of course we need to pair it up with a correct ball mount.

So when you're looking at ball mounts, one, we wanna make sure that the platform's gonna be anywhere from 3/8" to an 1 1/4" thick because the shank is about 2 1/8" long. So it comes with the nut and the lock washer. So you wanna make sure it can go all the way through. And then of course, with the hole on the inside of our ball mount, we wanna make sure it has a diameter of 3/4". Anything bigger than that, of course it won't fit and anything smaller, we're gonna have a lot of play there, and that's not something that you want with your towing setup.

So just make sure all that kinda lines up. It's made of a steel construction, so it should not rust away over time, but you never know. There's just a lot of friction that happens, almost every single trailer ball that I've seen has a little bit wear after a couple of years of use. So don't expect this not to rust away. If you really wanted to upgrade from this trailer ball, you can get one that's machined out of straight stainless steel, but we do have some other ones that are going to resist against rust and corrosion completely.

That's probably the only thing you could do to upgrade. When it comes to trailer balls there's not really a whole lot to 'em. You just wanna make sure you pair it up with the right ball mount. You wanna make sure it is gonna be rated the same as the ball mount. And of course, it's gonna be rated for whatever you are hauling.

That's pretty much all you really need to know to pick out the right system to haul whatever you're hauling. And that's pretty much it for our look at the Curt 2" Trailer Ball..
