Towing

Who tows a boat with their Durango. I have a 2014 limited and I am wondering which ball mount to get.

For my boat and cargo trailer I needed a 2" drop and 2" ball. I went with Curt which had the highest tow rating (7500 lbs GTW/750 lbs TW).

Amazon.com: CURT Manufacturing 45036 Class III 2" Loaded Ball Mount with 2" Ball: Curt Manufacturing: Automotive

You can see all their options here:

Did you have to flip yours to make the trailer sit level? Also how does the Durango tow? How many pounds are you towing? I am looking at a boat when loaded with trailer is about 4k.

No, I needed it as is with the 2" drop to get the right height which is about 20" to the top of the ball. Haven't towed yet but my old Honda Ridgeline towed my 5000lb boat just fine so I don't anticipate any trouble.

Re: Towing

Nice setup. I am looking at 19 to 20ft cc's I can take to the coast or fish inland lakes.
