Towing a trailer? This Towing Starter Kit is our most popular towing combination and includes everything* you need to attach a trailer to your 2” receiver hitch!
Hello! Please select a 2" ball mount that closely matches the trailer coupler height when level and that has a weight capacity that exceeds the gross trailer weight. To do this, measure the top of the receiver to the ground, then level trailer and measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground, the difference between the two measurements will be the correct ball mount height needed. You will then need to purchase and install the 2" ball - U-Haul part 4944 features a weight capacity of 7,500 lbs and industry-leading safety cotter pin.
You can also opt to visit your local U-Haul Hitch Center for a free towing inspection. I hope that is helpful!

You need a ball mount to raise your hook up to where the ball is no less than 18" above the ground. Or, no more than 24" above the ground. If you are going to be pulling a heavy trailer, try to get a rise closer to the 24". A light trailer closer to 20" above the ground. In either event, please check with a UHaul Center if you have any questions.
The ball on this product is a 2" ball. Thank you.
Our hitch pro writes: "For a safe comfortable ride the trailer should be set up to tow on a level plane, U-Haul trailer coupler heights when level are approximately 18 inches off the ground. However, before you tow it is always recommended to visit your local U-Haul center for a free tow inspection."
