What if you used boards to raise your tow vehicle instead?

I used to keep two boards laying behind a bush nearby and get them out whenever I backed in the trailer. Hid them when done, ready for the next time.

Buy a cheap 4" drop receiver with appropriate sized ball. Run the receiver upside down with the ball mounted accordingly. Stop outside your drive on a flat spot, switch receivers, back in, and unhitch. Depending on the size of the bump you need to get over, this could be a $20 solution.
