Many tow systems require some sort of hitch accessory to either raise or lower your tow bar so that it sits level. To determine if your setup needs an adapter, hook the tow bar up to your RV and towed car and measure to see how close to level it is. The "safe zone" for a motor-home-mounted tow bar ranges from 3 inches above level to 3 inches below. Car-mounted models must be absolutely level. This high-low adapter can provide you with the necessary drop or desired rise to achieve a level tow bar setup.

The Blue Ox 10" rise/drop trailer hitch I order from etrailer.com appears to be of the highest quality. I had hoped to find a dual-receiver hitch with a 10" rise/drop, but it appeared that the maximum available rise/drop in a dual-receiver hitch is about 4". 129914

Very well made..heavy duty! This product will compliment my existing Blue Ox Towing set up. It will allow me to drop the tow bar 4" and will provide a much better angle on the tow bar. Pricey, but worth the money. 139223

  • Can a Roadmaster High-Low Adapter be Used with a Blue Ox Tow Bar to Flat Tow a Honda CR-V
  • You can use a Roadmaster high-low adapter with your Blue Ox flat towing set up without worry about warranty issues. I believe the Roadmaster adapter is # RM-048-10. It is rated for 10,000 pounds. If you wanted to play it safe and stick with Blue Ox then use # BX88132. It is rated at 5,000 pounds which should still be more than enough for a Honda CR-V.

  • Hitch Adapter Recommendation For Flat Towing
  • We do carry adapter bars for the very reason you are experiencing. Many tow systems require an adapter to make the tow bar more level. Normally the safe zone for towing a vehicle is either 3 inches above or 3 inches below. You want to make sure your towed vehicle is absolutely level for safe towing. I recommend the Blue Ox High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars, part # BX88131. It has a weight capacity of 5000 lbs, fits 2 inch by 2 inch receivers, and has a rise/drop of 8 inches. It measures...
