Note: Designed for flat towing only. Do not use to tow a trailer.

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.

Ordering from etrailer is so easy their products are top quality and their staff is professional and knowledgeable I will continue to order from etrailer


Have been using the drop bar for about 6 months and 4000+ miles. It works well.


Bought this to use on our motor home for a tow vehicle. I have used Blue Ox hitches before and this drop adapter is very robust and I know I will not have any problems with it. I would recommend them.


Great customer service!! The product I ordered was exactly what I needed and the quality was exceptional. Received it in two days. A very pleasant experience unlike what many places offer. I will use them in the future for all my trailer part needs.


Can not say thank you enough!! Product shipped quickly as well as received it within a couple of days from the time we ordered it. Craftsmanship and quality exceeded our expectations. I have purchased Blue Ox equipment in the past and have had zero problems. Again excellent quality on this receiver riser. Have already hooked it up to our Jeep Wrangler and everything is a smooth fit. With etrailer and Blue Ox you can’t go wrong.
Thanks again!!


The adapter is heavy duty and works well. I wish there would have been 1 more hole to put the pin through to shorted it. Other than that, awesome!


Very heavy duty. Quality product. As is the rest of the equipment I purchased to be able to tow my pick up truck behind our RV. Great service. Very fast delivery. And good information on your webpage to make Ordering easy.


Very well built, a solid adapter.


Works well. Thanks


Perfect fit; cleared all onstructions.


Great product. Fits perfect. Very happy, I will continue to order parts as needed from etrailer.


You guys at etrailer consistently provide great parts and excellent customer service. Thanks once again for meeting my towing needs.


Does the job


Very good quality, and timely shipping.


My tow bar with 8" drop is solid heavy good welding just what I ordered

I could not be more pleased with my blue ox and I thank you for the concern. It’s always refreshing to see a company self check their buyers feelings on the product they sell. Thank you.

The website was easy to use and it was easy to place an order. My ordered arrived quickly and on time. I gladly recommend Thank you


This is a beefy hitch adapter, worked just as I imagine. I used it to raise my hitch mounted cargo carrier when off-roading, caring about 200 lbs. max. I would recommend this product.


The unit came at the time they specified and is super heavy duty. It is stronger then I expected but exactly what they described.
Very satisfied and highly Reccomended


super heavy duty, strong welds, beefy construction. We have yet to get it onto the coach for our new toad, but initial indicates are its a beast! thumbs up!


I was impressed with the quality of this hitch riser. I am using this to raise my hitch 8" so my tow bar lays flat level. My jeep is raised and the motor home hitch is low under the body. Solid stock male end, heavy wall material for the other parts. Should work perfectly for my purpose.


I installed a front hitch on my 2016 GMC Sierra 1500. The hitch was a little lower than I had expected so I researched for a hitch extension to allow needed clearance. The measurements on this were exactly what was needed. This item fit perfectly and the order process was flawless! Thank you!


I run a business from the road in my RV so I am never in one place to long. I needed this part for my RV and was concerned about shipping. I called and spoke to Lisa D and she was very cordial and helpful. We discussed my travel plans and the best method to ship the unit and it arrived as promised. Lisa emailed me a few times to keep me up to date on my shipping progress. The videos on etrailer are great too. etrailer also has a low price guarantee. So I get low prices, and great service, and I don't have to deal with other online stores. Lesson learned, buy from etrailer, not the other big online store where you will get lost in the shuffle of big business. Lastly, I have used Blue Ox equipment on my RV for years and it is all great stuff.


Looks Pretty Nice ,Put on car for a Rise for a 4 Bicycle rack .That used to rub on Curbs .Hope it does the Job.


Great teamwork and prompt results !
