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. .

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

Review from a similar Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter


I bought 4"/2" drop/rise receiver adapter( RM-077-4) and 2 stainless steel locking hitch pins. I needed the 4" drop to line up our "toad" behind our motor home. This device with the 2" rise solved the problem of, "Where do I hang the bike rack?" and saved me from having to install a hitch on the towed vehicle for that purpose. The adapter and pins were shipped for free and we saved considerably over what we would pay at a nearby major RV retail store. The quality of the locking pins speak for themselves in one word "STAINLESS". I wish they offered a similar quality pin in a side locking model instead of the end locking style. I would definitely replace the so called chrome one I have for the receiver on the coach. 148667

Excellent service from etrailer.com ! I just recieved the Roadmaster drop/rise bar & Roadmaster Quiet Hitch items. Very well packaged, and delivered in a timely fashion. I'll be installing the items on the motorcoach this week. Top quality items at great prices, and excellent service. I'll try to post a pic of everything that I purchased, in use, in the near future.

Expert Answers about Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 2-1/4" Rise/Drop - RM-077-2Do you have a question about this 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...

  • 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.

  • 2 Bike Rack For Use Between a Class A Motorhome and a Towed Vehicle

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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

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.

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.

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.

  • Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2009 Saturn Vue

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.

  • 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...

  • Availability of an Adapter to Tow a Car with a Tow Bar and Carry a Bike Rack
  • What you need would be something like the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, # RM-077-4. 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.

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes and Tow a Pop-Up Tent Trailer with a 2008 Ford Taurus X
  • There are no towing bike racks that are compatible with a 1-1/4 inch hitch but you have a few options. First, you could install a Class III trailer hitch on your 2008 Ford Taurus X. 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. I have included a link the roof rack main page for your vehicle. After adding a roof rack you would then need bike racks that fit. Because of the extra expense...

  • 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...

  • Recommendation for Carrying a Cargo Carrier and Towing a Vehicle on a Tow Dolly with RV
  • Yes there is an option that would work for you. You would want the Blue Ox SportCarrier # SC2100. This is a cargo carrier that will carry your generator easily and comes with a hitch extension so that you could tow your tow dolly as well. You will need to replace the hitch on your RV with a 3-Receiver Hitch for Blue Ox Sport Carriers # SC9000.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Dual Hitch Adapter for Flat Towing Truck Behind Motorhome and Carrying a Cargo Tray
  • We don't offer an adjustable dual hitch receiver, sounds like it would be a good product. Depending on how much drop you need, we might have something that would work for you. Assuming that you're flat towing a vehicle, something like the Roadmaster # RM-077-2 might work for you. According to Roadmaster, you'll want to have the receiver within 3 inches high or low of the height of the base plates. With the dual hitch receiver, you could use a cargo carrier with an angled shank that would...

  • Dual Hitch Adapter Recommendation for a Motorhome Flat Towing a Jeep Liberty and Carry Bike Rack
  • The MaxxTow Dual Hitch Extender # MT70070 was designed to do exactly what you are trying to do; flat tow a vehicle and carry an accessory like a bike rack. 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...

  • We do not have a dual receiver hitch for your 2009 Ford Escape with a 1-1/4 receiver hitch, however we do have several excellent options for you. You can use a Class III hitch like the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch with 2" receiver, part # 87626. Check out the installation video of this trailer hitch on a 2010 Ford Escape that I have included for you. With this hitch you have the option of using a Hitch Mounted Folding Towing Bike Rack # S64600. This rack fits firmly over the ball mount...

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Bike Rack be Used at the Back of a Vehicle Being Towed by a Motor Home
  • Bike Rack manufacturers tend to advise or flat out say not to use a hitch mounted bike rack on a vehicle that is being flat towed. You would want to look at a dual hitch receiver such as # RM-077-4 with a 4 inch drop or rise rated for 400 pounds tongue weight. We also have # RM-077-2 with a 2 inch rise/drop. These adapters would allow you to use the tow bar in the lower receiver and the bike rack in the top receiver. But there are only certain bike racks that are rated for use at...

  • 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...

  • Will Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, # S64663, Fit a Class A Motor Home While Flat Towing
  • If your Class A motor home has a 4 to 4-1/2 inch square steel bumper with a continuous weld the length of the bumper AND it is rated for weight carrying then yes, you can use the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, # S64663. You would not be able to install it in the trailer hitch if you are flat towing a vehicle unless you used a dual receiver deigned for flat towing and an accessory such as # RM-077-2. The other issue that you need to be careful of is turning with the toad and the...

  • Curt Multi-Purpose Ball Mount Recommendation
  • I think the closest thing to the Roadmaster Dual Hitch part # RM-077-2 that you referenced that would let you tow a trailer and have a hitch opening above it for an accessory like a bike rack would be the Curt Ball Mount and Hitch Receiver part # D210. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out also. Although the # RM-077-2 looks as if it would have plenty of capacity for a trailer towing situation, Roadmaster does not recommend this for any use but flat towing,...
