Sometimes referred to as a trailer hitch, this piece connects to the chassis of your vehicle. It can come in several different forms including a ball, bar, or hook. Each one allows for a swiveling action to take place during transportation which enables movement. In other words, it provides flexibility to turn and reverse with a trailer or camper in tow.

Ball mounts are the most popular in Canada. Generally, they are organized into five classifications with varying load limits. They are as follows:

  • Class I: 910 kg (2,000 lbs)
  • Class II: 1,600 kg (3,500 lbs)
  • Class III: 2.300 kg (5,000 lbs)
  • Class IV: 4,500 kg (10,000 lbs)
  • Class V: 7,700 kg (17,000 lbs)

To install a ball mount, you will also need a receiver hitch. This is a tube-shaped component that can be bolted or welded to the chassis. The tow hitch will be attached here. A typical unit for Ford models usually measures 5 cm (2-inches) and is forged in one piece. Resistant to corrosion, it will last a lifetime.
