Exactly what I needed for my motor home. I'm able to carry a receiver hitch bike rack with bikes and still tow my car. Works extremely well. This dual receiver is built very well. One point. For my needs, I also purchased anti-rattle locking bolts to take the "play" out of the hitch connections to stabilize the bike rack. They perform exactly as advertised. The bikes are very stable on the hitch except where the dual receiver mounts to the original receiver. Since the dual receiver is built so well, the "male" end is solid steel and not hollow. Therefore, internal locking bolts cannot be used. An external anti-rattle device is required at this connection and they are harder to find.31248

I ordered this product to be able to tow a car and haul 4 bikes on a bike rack. I used it first on a camping trip 150 miles away. The product works as advertised. I towed a Pontiac Grand Am and caried 4 heavy mountain bikes with no problem. I did have to get longer chains and an extension for the electrical hookup for the tow dolly (the extender adds about 8 inches). I was initially worried about clearence between the bike rack and the car but that turned out not to be a problem at all and could have addded a fifth bike easily. I probably had 150 pounds of bikes plus about 100 to 125 pounds of tounge weight from the Grand Am on a tow dolly. This is close, but still under the limit of the product and had no issues while driving across some very bumpy roads. It was worth every penny not to have to drive a motor home and car seperately. It will certainly pay for itself on longer trips. 50764

Great service! I received the adapter in short order and in great condition. I have a need to tow a car and a double trike carrier with my RV. Before I purchased this adapter I had a choice of towing one or the other. Now I can take both!9967

  • How to Use a Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack Together
  • Depending on your rack and carrier, they maybe able to be used at the same time, but more than likely, one will interfere with the other. Keep in mind the shape of your bike rack may interfere with loading cargo on your carrier and the carrier may be in the way of the bikes hanging down. If the cargo carrier has sides or rails that are tall, they may prevent the bike rack from being installed. Additionally this adapter/extension has a tongue weight rating of 350 pounds. This means that the ca

  • Can I use the Curt Dual Receiver Tube Adapter # D-192 with a Cargo Carrier
  • You can use the Curt Dual Receiver Tube Adapter, # D-192, as long as the Class II trailer hitch on your Ford Five Hundred has a 2 inch x 2 inch receiver. Class II receivers can have either a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening or a 2-inch receiver opening. If you have a 1-1/4 hitch opening on your Ford 500, I would consider upgrading your hitch to a 2-inch receiver opening like the Hidden Hitch Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 87108, which will work well with a cargo carrier and scooter.

  • Can Curt Dual 2 inch Receiver Tube Adapter, # D-192 Be Used With Weight Distribution
  • The Curt Dual 2 inch Receiver Tube Adapter, # D-192, can be used to tow a trailer with the bottom receiver while carrying a bike rack in the top receiver. However, you will not be able to use it with weight distribution. There is another option. Since you have a pop up camper you could use the Pop Up Camper Roof Mount 4 Bike Rack - Swagman Pop-Up Mighty Rack # S80550. You install this rack right on top of your pop up camper. You will not have to worry about the tongue weight or adding an adap

  • Can I Use the Curt Dual Receiver to Tow a 16 Foot Aluminum Fishing Boat and a Bike Rack
  • The Curt Dual 2 Inch Receiver, item # D-192, can be used to tow a trailer and carry a bike rack or cargo carrier. The top receiver is not to be used for towing, so your ball mount must be placed in the lower receiver for towing the boat. You then need to consider the capacity of the lowest rated item in your system. The tongue weight capacity for the # D-192 is 350 pounds and the towing capacity is 3500 pounds. Check the towing weight ratings on your hitch and vehicle to be sure they will not

  • Can the Tow Bar Adaptor # D-192 be Used to Tow a Trailer and Carry a Electric WheelChair
  • The Curt Dual 2 inch Receiver Tube Adapter, with 8 inch Extension, item # D-192, is not for use with any type of trailer. The dual receivers that we carry are only rated for use while towing vehicles with 4 wheels down. You could possibly use the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2 inch Receiver for Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers , item # D210, and a carrier large enough to carry your electric wheel chair. Although the # D210 has an overall tongue weight capacity of 750 lbs, the receiver porti

  • Can I Use Curt Dual 2 Inch Receiver Tube Adapter Part # D-192 To Tow 9K Trailer and Carry Bike Rack
  • The item you selected, Curt Dual 2 Inch Receiver Tube Adapter, 8 Inch Extension, part # D-192, is only rated for a GTW of 3,500 pounds and a tongue weight of only 350 pounds, which your trailer surpasses significantly. To use part # D-192, you would have to stay within the total tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds, when using both 2 inch receiver openings. So for example, if you had a trailer with a tongue weight of 200 pounds attached, you could only use a bike rack and bikes with a total

  • Could I Use a Curt Dual Reciever # D-192 to Flat Tow a 2005 Pontiac Vibe and Carry a Bike Rack
  • I did a little research and found that based on various options your 2005 Pontiac Vibe will weigh around 2,700 lbs, which is much less than the 3,500 lb limit of this Curt Dual Reciever # D-192. Also, you are correct, when using a tow bar there will be a minimal amount of tongue weight on the hitch. And, based on the fact that you will only have 100 lbs in bikes and bike rack on the top receiver you should be good in that regard.

  • Trailer Hitch and Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 1999 Buick Century
  • The first thing I would do is upgrade the trailer hitch to a Class II. A Class I trailer hitch is limited in terms of the accessories you can put on it and in overall capacity. With the load you want to carry, I would absolutely go with the highest rated hitch I could get. I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 36374. This is a Class II trailer hitch with a gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500 pounds, and a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. I have included a link to the installatio

  • Ball Mount Recommendation to Carry a Cargo Carrier and Tow a Trailer at the Same Time
  • We do have an option for you that would work better than the Curt Dual Receiver, # D-192. I recommend the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210. This ball mount was designed for your application; towing a trailer and carrying an accessory at the same time. It has a higher tongue weight capacity as well. The cargo carrier and cargo loaded on it, plus the tongue weight of the trailer all count against the 750 pound tongue weight capacity of this ball mount and the receiver portion of the ball mo

  • Can a Dual Purpose Ball Mount be Used to Carry a Dirt Bike and Tow a Seadoo Trailer
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he stated that the dual purpose receivers and ball mounts are not rated for use with something like a dirt bike and carrier. The issue is not the weight but where that weight is placed. It will be too far from the receiver and can cause it to fail. The best option, but still not ideal, is to install a front mount hitch, # 33328, and use the dirt bike carrier in it. However, my contact at Curt did state that for every foot of distance the weight is from the

  • Can I Use Curt 2-Inch Dual Receiver Adapter # D-192 to Tow a 2006 Honda CR-V and Carry Two Bikes
  • I did a little research and found that based on various options your 2006 Honda CR-V will weigh around 3,300 lbs, which is less than the 3,500-lb limit of the Curt 2-Inch Dual Receiver Adapter, part # D-192. So you would be fine to tow your vehicle if you do not load up the CR-V with more than 200 lbs of cargo. To use part # D-192, you would have to stay within the total tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds, when using both 2-inch receiver openings. The tongue weight will be minimal when usin

  • Solutions for Towing Pop-Up and Carrying Bikes Simultaneously
  • Using a ball mount in the Curt Dual Receiver Adapter will place quite a bit of downward leverage on your receiver. You will then have three connection points between the receiver and the trailer coupler, which will add a considerable amount of bouncing, which is why I would not recommend using it for this purpose. A much better option would be the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, part # D210. The ball mount can handle 750 lbs of tongue weight, with the receiver portion having a capacity of 350 l

  • Using # D-192 Dual Hitch Receiver to Carry Bike Rack and Tow Trailer with 2011 Mazda CX7
  • The Curt # D-192 might be an option for you, but I am afraid once you place a ballmount in the rise orientation in the bottom receiver opening, there will not be enough room to install your bike rack. Your best option would probably be a trunk mounted rack like the Thule Raceway, which is available in a 2 bike (# TH9001) or 3 bike (# TH9002) capacity. If you went with a trunk mounted rack, I would recommend using an extra-long ball mount like part # 4285 to provide extra clearance between th

  • Can I Use Curt 2-Inch Dual Receiver Adapter # D-192 as an Extender for a Bike Rack
  • Since the rise/drop hitch opening of the Curt Dual 2 inch Receiver Tube Adapter # D-192 is designed to be used with hitch accessories such as a bike rack I believe the # D-192 would be the better choice to give you a little extension and drop so you can clear the spare tire and open the rear area with the rack tilted. A couple things I would like to point out is when you use a hitch extension you cut the capacities of the hitch in half due to the increased leverage. Also, you will lose some g

  • Dual Hitch Recommendation for Carrying a Thule Apex Bike Rack and Towing a Small Trailer
  • The Curt Dual Reciever Hitch # D-192 that you referenced should work well for you as long as the hitch on your vehicle has the capacity for the tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of your Thule Apex Swing Away Carrier # TH9027 and bikes. You should note that when you use a hitch extender such as the # D-192 you cut the capacity of the hitch in half. So as long as you confirm that you have enough capacity you should have no problem using this setup. I attached an FAQ article on ho

  • Using a Dual Hitch Adapter to Carry a Bike Rack and a Cargo Carrier
  • Due to the lower tongue weight capacities of trailer hitches that have 1-1/4 inch receivers, there are no dual hitch adapters available for a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers. The adapters are only available for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. If you have a 2 inch trailer hitch and a bike rack or cargo carrier with a 1-1/4 inch shank, you could use a hitch reducer like part # HT02 to allow you to use your hitch mounted accessory with the dual hitch adapter. Please note, the dual hitch adap

  • Can 2 Hitch Adapters be Used Together to Carry a Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier at the Same Time
  • You will not be able to use an adapter in another adapter to carry a bike rack and cargo carrier at the same time. This is because the use of 1 adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. So if you have a hitch with a 400 pound tongue weight capacity, the use of one adapter will reduce that to 200 pounds. Then if you were to use another adapter, the capacity will be reduced again to only 100 pounds. If the cargo carrier and bike rack weigh 91 pounds that would m

  • Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount Recommend for Towing a 2010 Coleman Utah with a 2011 Ford Explorer
  • I believe your best option for carrying a bike rack and towing your 2010 Coleman Utah camper would be to use a Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210. This would allow you to carry your bike rack in the top opening and tow your trailer with the ball mount portion. Without knowing what brand of sway control you have it is hard to say if you still would be able to use it with the # D210. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out also.

  • Towing a Pop Up Camper Trailer and Carrying a Bike Rack Together on a 2010 Honda Odyssey
  • The best option for you is going to be the Curt multi-purpose ball mount # D210. The reason it is a better choice is because it has a ball mount built into it so it would not need an additional ball mount. Also, using D210 does not reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch like # D-192 will. The tongue weight capacity of D210 is 750 pounds but the receiver portion is rated for 350 pounds. The combined weight of the trailer tongue weight and the loaded bike rack cannot exceed 750
