Hello, I have a '06 ESV and I don't know what kind/size trailer hitch/ball mount to buy. What kind do you use? I can't find the size spec in the owner's manual. Is it out there somewhere?

Depends on what you're hauling, check the mount to see what size of a ball you need. The escalade's have one of the most popular hitch size so it shouldnt be too hard to find a hitch for it.

Ball size depends on your trailer ball size, drop is how many inches to make the trailer level, I have had different trailers, and have two at this time, a 20 ft open and a 26 ft6 enclosed, the open trailer takes a 6" drop the enclosed one takes a 4" drop, both of my trailers take a 2" diameter ball.

What about the hitch pin? What size is the Escalade? 5/8"?
