Yeah me too until one day while walking around the back of my TV(tow vehicle) I experienced the lovely shin pain from not noticing the ball mount sticking out. From that day on it was a stinger to me......

I've also heard "shank." So we've got shank, ball mount, drawbar, and stinger. Any others?

"Shank" normally refers to only the part of a multi-piece adjustable-height ball mount or WD hitch head which goes into the receiver; it is not interchangeable with "ball mount", which is the whole thing right to the hole for the ball, either in a single piece or as an adjustable assembly.

"Drawbar" is often used to mean a ball mount, but I don't think this is appropriate for something which supports the trailer's tongue weight - it normally refers to a bar which is used to pull a full trailer (for which the drawbar is hinged at both ends) or implement.

My guess is that "stinger" should be considered a synonym for ball mount, but I think the term ball mount is much more descriptive, and ball mount is what the towing equipment industry generally uses.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

My husband had a drawbar from a John Deere on his 78 chevy pickup. It was very immobile.
