Video Transcript for Roadmaster Accessories and Parts RM-077-2 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number RM-077-2. This is the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, providing a 2" drop or 2" rise measuring from the center of the shank to the center of the pin holes here on the receiver tube. It's actually going to give us 2-1/4" going up and 2-1/4" going down. That's going to be our drop or rise. It is designed for a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. It's a really simple installation. I'm going to go ahead and show you how it installs inside of our hitch.

All you got to do is take the shank and slide it into the receiver tube and push it in until your pin holes line up with one another. Then you'll need to install a 5/8" pin or clip, or pin and clip, or a hitch pin and lock. Those are going to be sold separately and you can find those right here at etrailer.com. It's going to offer a capacity of 10,000 pounds with a maximum tongue weight of 400 pounds. This is going to allow you to double your capacity while using a tow bar. You can add a bike rack or a cargo carrier with a dual hitch receiver.

All the pin holes are going to measure 5/8". The measurement that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the pin holes on the receiver tubes that's going to give us a measurement of 9-1/8". The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of our shank is going to give us a measurement of right at 2". This is made from a steel construction. It has a really nice finish on it so it is going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. The shank of the unit is a solid piece so it's not hollow on the back, it's a nice solid steel. Taking a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the receiver tubes is going to give us a measurement of 5-5/8".

The distance that we have between the receiver tubes here at the front is going to give us a measurement of 1-1/2". The overall length measuring from edge to edge is going to give us a measurement of 13-3/4". Again it does offer the drop and rise that is going to be measured from the center of the shank to the center of the pin holes on the receiver tube. When we did that measurement we can up with 2-1/4". That's going to do it for today's review of part number RM-077-2. This is the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter. .

- RM-077-2

by: Tom O05/18/2013


The product was well built, the receiver end was solid so the Anti-Rattle lock would not have worked as it requires hollow receiver. This is a 10,000 pound rated product. I intended to use to add my existing bike rack and Tow bar together, but the bike rack prevented the Tow bar from being added and so I had to send it back and get a different bike rack that fit on my Tow bar. I did keep one of the locks and added to my Alpha Tow bar for Anti-Rattle and Locking. 80820

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Accessories and Parts


  • Choosing Bike Rack to be Used While Towing a Camper
  • The Dual Hitch Receivers such as part # RM-077-2 cannot be used for towing a trailer. These receivers are meant for use with a towbar carrying a rolling load and an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. We offer a Curt Ball Mount with 2 inch Receiver, part # D210, which should work for your needs. This ball mount has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs, so the trailers tongue weight and the weight of the bike carrier plus the weight of the bikes cannot exceed that figure. Another...

  • 2 Bike Rack For Use Between a Class A Motorhome and a Towed Vehicle
  • It sounds like you are looking for a Dual Hitch Adapter, see link. I would recommend the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, item # RM-077-2, for towing a vehicle and using a bike rack in the top receiver. You could use the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, item # S64663, which would be a good choice, or any of the bike racks we have rated for use behind a RV that will fit in a 2 inch hitch, see link.

  • Availability of a Dual hitch Receiver to Carry a Hitch Mount Bike Rack and Tow a Trailer
  • There are actually adapters made that offer 2 receivers so you will not have to weld a bike rack to the top of the receiver. We have numerous options like the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, # RM-077-2. Or, you could use Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210, which has a receiver on top and ball mount on the bottom. When using one of the above products remember that the top receiver cannot be used for towing and that the tongue weight includes the combined weight of everything...

  • Towing a Dual PWC Trailer and Using Cargo Carrier at the Same Time
  • For your cargo carrier, a better option would be the Curt Trailer Hitch Ball mount with 2 Inch Receiver, part # D210. Keep in mind that this ball mount has a tongue weight capacity of 750 lbs. This means that the tongue weight of your PWC trailer, the cargo carrier and anything placed on it can weigh no more than 750 lbs. I am including a picture of the Valley dual hitch receiver with dimensions that might help you decide if it will work for your application. The Roadmaster Dual Receiver...

  • Dual Reciever Extensions for Flat Towing a Car and Using a Cargo Carrier
  • Yes we do have an adapter available that should work for you. You could use the Curt Dual 2 Inch Receiver and Extension, part # D-192. You could also use one of the Roadmaster versions, part # RM-077-4 or RM-077-2. These parts are only to be used with a rolling load such as a vehicle being towed with a tow bar and should never be used to tow a trailer.

  • Recommendation for Carrying Bikes While Towing a Trailer at the Same Time
  • The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, # RM-077-2, is for tow bar use only and cannot be used with any type of trailer. But there may be another option. You may be able to use a towing bike rack, like # S64955, depending on how many bikes you wish to carry. I have included a link to our towing bike tracks for you to view. Please note that the weight of the rack plus the weight of the bikes will count against the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. Another option is to...

  • Hitch Adapter Needed with a 6 Inch Extension and a 2 Inch rise
  • The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Adapter, part # RM-077-2, may be what you are looking for. It is designed for tow bar use only and is not to be used with any type of trailer. This adapter fits a 2 inch receiver and will give a 2 inch rise and drop. The overall length of the hitch adapter is 14-3/4 inches and the measurement from hitch pin hole to hitch pin hole is 6-3/4 inches, which is the amount of useable extension when installed in the receiver. You may also be interested in the...

  • Carrying Two Bikes on Rear of 2012 Ford F150 While Towing Forest River R Pod 178
  • For starters, be aware that the use of any hitch adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by fifty percent. So, if the tongue weight capacity of your hitch is 600 lbs (consult sticker on hitch for actual tongue weight capacity), using a dual hitch adapter will lower that tongue weight capacity to 300 lbs. If the hitch or tongue weight of the Rpod is 257 lbs, then your bikes plus the rack you use would need to weigh less than 43 lbs to prevent overloading the hitch (which...

  • Bike Rack for Use with a Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter and ReadyBrake Elite Tow Bar
  • Any bike rack that you could use, see link, would most likely have to come off first before being able to easily fold and stow the tow bar. Out of the available bike racks you would have to go with a 3 bike model, # S64910-2, because none of the 2 bike models will fit the 2 inch receiver in # RM-077-2. I have linked a video and instructions for the bike rack for you.

  • Can a Dual Hitch Receiver Be Used to Carry a Bike Rack and a Cargo Carrier
  • Dual hitch receivers, like the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, # RM-077-2, are designed for flat towing a vehicle behind an RV and having the ability to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier in the top receiver. A cargo carrier and bike rack cannot be used together. For your situation I would recommend using a roof mounted bike rack like the Swagman Rooftop Bike Rack, # S64720, which is one of our most popular roof mounted bike racks. If you do not have a roof rack on your 2010...

  • Can Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, Part # RM-077-2, be Used with a Towing Dolly
  • The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, Part # RM-077-2, has a rated tongue weight capacity of 400 pounds. Its intended purpose is to allow use of an accessory such as a bike carrier or cargo carrier at the same time that a tow bar is being used. However, it is designed for use only with tow bars and is not intended for use with any type of trailer; this restriction includes a towing dolly. Please keep in mind that any type of hitch extender or hitch adapter will reduce the tongue...

  • Can I Use The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-2 With My Blue Ox Tow Bar
  • If your Blue Ox tow bar is an RV mounted tow bar, then part # RM-077-2 will work if your receiver is a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver. An RV mounted tow bar will have the shank to fit into one of the 2 inch by 2 inch openings of part # RM-077-2. If your Blue Ox tow bar is a vehicle mounted tow bar, then part # RM-077-2 will not work, as it will have a ball mount coupler on the end of the tow bar. As long as your Blue Ox tow bar is an RV mounted tow bar, as it would disconnect from the...

  • High-Low Adapter for Flat Towing a Vehicle and Carrying a Bike Rack at the Same Time
  • A lot depends on the tow bar you are using, the hitch height, and the vehicle being flat towed. The 2 inch drop on # RM-077-2 would be fine if you are using a tow bar that has a shank that fits into a receiver rather than the type that has a coupler which would be more likely to interfere. The 4 inch drop, # RM-077-4, does have better clearance but like you said that will change the angle of the tow bar. You will want the tow bar to be as level as possible. Each tow bar has a little...

  • Using a Cargo Carrier and a Bike Rack With a Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter on a 2008 Mercedes ML320
  • A cargo carrier and bike rack should not be used together. Depending on your rack and carrier, they may be able to be used at the same time, but it is more likely that 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. Dual hitch receivers, like...

  • Will The Swagman Standard 4 Bike Rack # S64400 Work With Hitch Adapter Behind an RV To Tow Vehicle
  • You could use the Swagman Standard 4 Bike Rack, part # S64400, fits 2 inch receivers and will work with a 2 inch adapter like the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, part # RM-077-2, or Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, part # D210. You will want to make sure not to exceed the tongue weight capacity of the adapter you are using. You will also want to make sure that the bottom shank of the bike rack is at least 15 inches off the ground. The Swagman Standard 4 Bike Rack, part # S64400,...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a Motor Home Towing a Car Dolly
  • I do have a solution for you. You can use the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver, # RM-077-4, or # RM-077-2. You can then use a 4 bike, hitch mount rack like # S64400 that you have referenced. There are only certain bike racks that can be used at the back of a motor home, see link, and this rack is one of them. The dual receiver will allow you to tow the car on the dolly and carry the bike rack and bikes at the same time. Then when not towing, just insert the rack in the hitch without the...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for Use on a 2004 Honda CR-V Being Flat Towed Behind a Motor Home
  • The issue is that when a vehicle is connected to an RV it can change the way that vehicle rides which in turn can put additional stress on the bike rack. So to cover their bases Hollywood Racks has indicated that the Sport Rider # HR1000 should not be used in any time of towing situation. Not to worry though because you and other RV owners with toads still have some options. There are several racks that you can use at the back of an RV or trailer. This means that you can also use them...

  • Dual Hitch Receiver For Bike Rack And Trailer
  • We do have a product that will accomplish the same thing for you. If you have a 2 inch receiver on your vehicle I recommend the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver, part # RM-077-2. This has dual 2 inch receiver openings which will allow you to be able to tow a trailer with the bottom receiver while using the top receiver to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier. I have attached a photo of this dual receiver you can check out. You will need to make sure the bike rack does not interfere with...

  • Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2009 Saturn Vue
  • I would recommend you use a Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver # RM-077-2. This product has a towing capacity of 10,000 lbs and should have no problem flat-towing your 2009 Saturn VUE that weights approximately 5,000 lbs. When in use you will want the tow bar to be sitting as level as possible. If the tow bar is not level you may experience handling problems and tire wear issues on the front tires of the towed vehicle. I attached an FAQ on flat towing vehicle for you to check out also.

  • Does Using Roadmaster Dual Receiver Reduce Trailer Hitch Tongue Weight Capacity when Flat Towing
  • In a flat towing situation the use of an adapter like # RM-077-2 does NOT reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch because there is very little tongue weight on it when flat towing a vehicle. So you can use this adapter to flat tow your Jeep and to carry a bike rack. In a regular towing situation like towing a trailer and not a vehicle, the use of an adapter or extender reduces the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. This is because the additional length...

  • Bike Rack Options When Towing a VW Jetta with a Motor Home
  • I might have a solution for you, but this Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-2 that you referenced is designed for tow bars only. You might be able to use a bike rack that will install onto the ladder rack of your motor home. This would give you a bike rack to carry your bikes and still be able to use your tow dolly to tow your Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen. If you have a ladder at the back of your motorhome you would want the Surco Bike Rack part # SP501BR.

  • Clearance Dimensions of Roadmaster Dual Hitch Reciever With 2 Inch Rise
  • The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back side of the receiver openings is 6-3/4 inches. From hitch pin hole to hitch pin hole on receiver openings is 10-1/4 inches. If you are simply looking for an extension and not necessarily two receiver openings, we have several extensions available in various sizes. I have included a link to all of our 2 inch extension parts. Please note that using one of these extenders will reduce hitch capacity by 50 percent.

  • Recommendation for Carrying a Cargo Carrier and Towing a Vehicle on a Tow Dolly with RV

  • Recommendations for Carrying Bikes on T&G Trailer Towed By Toyota Sienna
  • The issue you're going to run into is that you don't have much ground clearance at the rear of your Sienna. Using a dual hitch adapter or a towing bike rack like the Swagman # S64975 isn't likely to provide the kind of rise needed to tow your trailer so it's level. When the trailer isn't towed level, it'll be more susceptible to trailer sway, which can be dangerous. We do have a solution that would allow you to carry two bikes on the A-frame tongue of your trailer, the Bike Bunk from...

You would then use a bike rack with a regular shank like # S64670, in the top receiver and the tow bar in the bottom receiver. This one has a 4 inch drop/rise. We also have # RM-077-2, which has a 2 inch drop/rise. I have included a link to the installation details and a video review of the bike rack for you.

The most popular option is # 87108. Then you could use a towing bike rack, see link. Another option is to carry the bikes on the roof of the vehicle.

  • Can Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-2 Be Used with Bike Rack and Towbar
  • Yes, the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-2 can be used simultaneously with both a hitch-mount bike rack in the upper receiver and a tow bar in the lower receiver to flat tow your dinghy. However, the Swagman XC 2-Bike Platform Style Rack # S64650 cannot be used on the rear of your RV. Bike racks that are to be used on motorhomes and RVs must be built specially to withstand the vertical and lateral forces found at the rear of such vehicles. In the same way that a seat...

  • Using Roadmaster # RM-077-2 Dual Hitch Adapter for Towing 5000 lb Travel Trailer
  • The Roadmaster # RM-077-2 Dual Hitch Adapter isn't meant for towing a trailer, only for a rolling load like a vehicle being flat towed. We do have other dual-hitch adapters, but using them will lower the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent. If your existing hitch has a 600 lb tongue weight capacity, using an adapter of any kind would lower that to 300 lbs, which wouldn't be enough for your travel trailer. There are some possible solutions, however. Curt makes a Multipurpose...

This rack has a capacity of 400 lbs tongue weight and 4,000 lbs total weight. So as long as your Liberty weighs less than 4,000 lbs total you would be fine. If you need something with more capacity the # RM-077-2 would be a better choice as it can tow a vehicle up to 10,000 lbs. For a bike rack you will need one rated for use behind...
