How do I know if I need a 2 1/4 or 3 1/2 inch drop. Which does a U-Haul trailer require?

–Mark Clark 3/11/2014 7:01:12 PM

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."

Is this available with a 2" ball ?

–me 5/15/2014 11:42:09 AM

The ball on this product is a 2" ball. Thank you.

My tow bar hitch is 12 inches off the ground, so would I need Towing kit that would set the ball @ 18'' above the ground making it a 8 inch up set up?

–Roger 6/20/2014 11:15:50 AM

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.

Am I purchasing this or just renting?

What is the distance between the center of the hitch pin and the center of the ball/post?

–Ann P 10/28/2017 9:59:44 PM

Hi, Ann! The distance is 8-1/4 inches. Thanks for asking!

–Savannah 11/27/2017 10:25:02 AM

If I were to purchase a lock for the tow while utilizing a U-Haul 2 1/4" or 3 1/2" starter drop, what size lock pin is required? 1/2" and 5/8" hitch pin? Or, does U-Haul sale locks as I would rather lock the trailer on rather than deal with someone disconnecting the trailer and possibly driving off with it.

–Richard Gaines 1/27/2018 7:32:41 AM

Hi, Richard! The U-Haul 2" Starter kits are designed with a 5/8" diameter pin hole. Please see the U-Haul lock set part 3794DAT. Thank you!

–Savannah 1/30/2018 11:22:47 AM
