    As per thread title: I've been looking at Torklift's hitch products and am wondering why they might sell their ball mount adapter separately from their hitch. Can a product whose interface points down have any functionality without such an adapter?

    Stated another way, might I or anyone else possibly have a use for their hitch if not also purchasing said adapter?

    I believe it's included. Perhaps sell separately as well for those that want both 1.5" and 2"???

    There is a thread under Model S: Interior and Exterior that the EcoHitch folks participate in semi-regularly. You could probably verify there.

    There are multitude of ball sizes, this way someone can buy whichever they need themselves.

    brkaus: I unsuccessfully looked for that link. Happy to have this thread subsumed there.
    Zaphod: No, this question is independent of ball size

    Sorry, guess I misunderstood what you were asking. I see now, by ball mount adapter I thought you were referring to the actual receiver part where the ball mounts. What they call the ball mount adapter is the hitch part that accepts the receiver. There are still different sizes of receivers though as brkaus mentions.
