Video Transcript for Roadmaster Accessories and Parts RM-048-8 Review

Today we'll be reviewing RM-048-8, this is the Road Master High Low Hitch Adapter, traded at 10,000 pounds when it comes to weight capacity. It's going to have maximum ton weight of 400 pounds. This is designed to fit a two inch by two inch trailer hitch. The opening on the receiver itself is a two inch by two inch opening. If we take a measurement of the drop measuring from the top edge of the receiver tube to the top edge of the receiver tube it's going to give us a drop of eight inches. This can be used in the rise or dropped position, so if you flip it over to the rise position it's going to also give you an eight inch rise. Let's go over a few measurements real quick.

We're going to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest point here on the angle brace. That measurement is going to give us a measurement of five and a half inches. If we measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest point here, that part that's welded on. That's going to give us a measurement of three and a half inches. The distance from one pin hole to the other, center on center, is going to give us a measurement of nine and seven eighths of an inch, and up top here we're going to take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank, and that's going to give us a measurement of two inches. If you we're to go at a straight angle from one pin hole to the other, a forty five degree angle, you're going to come up with a measurement of about twelve and a half inches.

You can see here on the back side that this is a solid shank, it's a solid piece. It is going to require a five eighths inch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. We do sell those at etrailer.com, you can go to our website and type in part number PC3, it's going to refer you to a great option that's going to be a five eighths inch pin that's going to come with a clip. Please keep in mind that this is not for use with any type of trailer, this is designed for use with tow bars only. Again, it's going to give us a weight capacity of 10,000 pound with a maximum ton weight capacity of 400 pounds. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RM-048-8, this is the Road Master High Low Hitch Adapter.

Originally ordered a 10" High-Low Hitch Adapter and needed a 7-day (maximum) delivery date to stay on my departure schedule. etrailer responded within one day to say that there was a manufacturer's delay but they had 8" adapters in stock. This would work, so we changed order and it shipped before end of that day. I received order from UPS yesterday (one day before due). Quality, appearance and application looks great. We'll be on road on schedule and see if performance and fit meet my plans and expectations. So far, so good. Thanks. 55383

Just received the order - everything was perfect! Fast shipping and appears to be a great product. Fits perfectly and solves my towing height issue. Being used with Blue Ox products (much less expensive option, and rated for more weight). Excellent value and customer service (called prior to my order, ordered via web, and received follow up). Will definitely use them again should the need arise! 130446

This product is fabricated well. The finish is durable, the welds are substantial and neat, as I have come to expect with Roadmaster products. As always, the service from Etrailer was quick with shipping updates and status. The parts arrived well packed using a stout carton with handles, thus no damage to the carton or contents. Etrailer knows how to pack and ship! 82548

This is something I need and etrailer has a number of different sizes and the one I picked was an 8" unit. This should work fine on rising my Hitch carrier to he right rise from the ground. The 3 ball carrier is something I ordered in hopes I can store my interchangeable balls 36043

This drop down is so much better than we expected. It's well made, heavy duty and made the wheelchair carrier so much better. Now my power wheelchairs go up onto the carrier easily. No more fighting with the chair to go onto the carrier ramp, which was way too steep. 127038

Great service. The 8" adapter wasn't in service, but I asked to switch my order to the 6" adapter so I could begin using the product immediately. The customer service staff switched the order immediately and shipped the product! A+ on customer service! 42740

Ordering experience, delivery and follow-through on the part of this company and especially the sales agent was excellent. Part looks great and fits the motorhome hitch perfectly. While I haven't connected the towbar yet I do not anticipate any issues. 141796

Looks like the high-low hitch adapter is just what I need to raise my rod rack higher for surf fishing and driving on the beach. They even shipped it in 3 days time rather than the 7 days I paid for...at no extra charge. 66940

Your reps did excellent job except for one suggestion. The High-low Hitch Adapter does not come with the Hitch Pin. This should be mentioned as you must have the Hitch Pin. Keep up the good work. Richard B. 105093
