The correct size hitch ball mount is essential for trailer towing safety. This is true whether the trailer weighs 8,000lbs and is towing a $100,000 boat or is a small trailer being towed by a car. We carry a wide selection of ball mounts to provide the perfect amount of rise or drop depending on the height of the towing vehicle and trailer.
The trailer should be as level as possible and can be adjusted with the correct rise or drop ball mount. A balanced trailer will set the correct amount of tension on the towing vehilce and the trailer. Because the trailer and vehicle heights frequently vary, a ball mount with the proper rise or a drop is vital for proper towing safety. A ball mount can be utilized to elevate or sink the height of the ball to allow for level trailer towing.
There are a few things to take into account when determining the level of rise and drop you need with the use of the ball mount. First is the measurement for your ball mount such as the hitch height and the coupler height, then computing the difference. If the hitch height is greater than the coupler height, the difference is the drop that is necessary. The trailer hitch ball mount with the rise or drop nearest to the difference should be preferred.
We carry adjustable ball mounts, drop ball mounts, rise ball mounts and multi-ball mounts from Curt manufacturing, Reese, and other Cequent brands such as Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite.
