Curt 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball Review

Hello neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer and today we're taking a look at the Curt 1-7/8" Trailer Ball. This is gonna be an extra long shank. So for something like bumper towing like we have here on our F-150, this is gonna be a great option. Now what separates this ball from a lot of other balls on the market, it's gonna be the extra long shank and this is gonna be a 3". So from the bottom of the ball platform to the bottom of the shank, this one is 3", which works out really well for mounting this up on our bumper. It's gonna work with ball mounts, so we're bumper platforms that are gonna be 1" to 2" thick and that's still gonna give us that nice secure mounting up, whereas another ball mount, the shank will be too short to be able to crank that down. more

Curt 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball Installation - 2023 Ford F-150

Hello neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer and today we're taking a look at the CURT 1-7/8 Trailer Hitch Ball with an extra long shank on a 2023 Ford F-150. Now from the factory, not all F-150's come with a trailer hitch and if that's the case, you do have an option to mount up a ball on the bumper and be able to bumper tow, so that way you don't have to get a hitch or a ball mount. You can simply run it through the hole that's already there torque this down and then you'll have your ball ready to hook up to your trailer. Now what separates this ball from a lot of other balls on the market is gonna be the extra long shank and this is gonna be a 3 inch. So from the bottom of the ball platform to the bottom of the shank, this one is 3 inches, which works out really well for mounting this up on our bumper. It's gonna work with ball mounts or bumper platforms that are gonna be 1 inch to 2 inches thick and that's still gonna give us that nice secure mounting up, whereas another ball mount, the shank will be too short to be able to crank that down. more

Curt 1-7/8

Hello neighbors, it's Brad here at Etrailer and today we're taking a look at the Curt inch and seven eighths trailer hitch ball. This one's rated at 3,500 pounds and has a built-in one inch rise. When hooking up your trailer, you try to get your coupler and trailer tongue to be exactly level with the towed vehicle. And sometimes you just need about an inch to get that perfectly set up. And instead of having to go out and buy a new ball mount, you can pick up a ball with that one inch rise already built in. So the ball mount we had had a two inch drop, but all we needed was a one inch drop. more

Hello neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the Curt stainless steel inch and seven eighths ball mount. Now this is gonna be a great option if you have a smaller trailer with a coupler with an inch and seven eighths and you already have a ball mount because this just comes singular and this will bolt up to those ball mounts with a one inch diameter. Now this ball mount is gonna be rated at 3,500 pounds, which is gonna be great. So anytime when towing any trailer, you're gonna want to take a look at all of your components. So this one being rated at 3,500 pounds. We have this on a 7,500 pound rated ball mount, but we also need to check the hitch as well as the towed vehicle to make sure that they're all capable of towing that. more

Hello neighbors. It's Brad here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the B&W 2 5/16 trailer ball with a 1 inch diameter and a 12,000 pound weight capacity. Now we have this on our weight distribution hitch today because we swapped from a 2 inch ball to a 2 5/16 ball, and this is gonna be a great option for that, but also it's gonna work on your ball mount if you have that 1 inch diameter. And this is a pretty heavy-duty ball. So for something like our Duramax that we have here today, it's gonna be a great option. Now this ball is a heat-treated steel, and it's got a raw finish, meaning it's not chrome, it's not painted, and that means it's not really gonna scratch. more
