This product weighs about 23 pounds. It’s nicely made. Connecting my Blue Ox Avail to it and a future bike rack. Ordering from etrailer went very smoothly. I was amazed how fast I got it. I do need to order a hitch extender. This won’t go all the way into my Class A mobile home hitch receiver to the second pin hole. The coach body is in the way. Not etrailer’s fault. Mine. These guys are great to work with. I already have an email into them to ask for a hitch extender recommendation.

Having had less expensive or solidly built drop hitches, this unit is exceptional and provides a real sense of security for towing a vehicle with a motorhome.

  • Gen Y Replacement Shank on 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Towing Travel Trailer
    The Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-303 is a great option for lowering the ball mount for your 2021 GMC Sierra 1500. This shank is rated for 10,000lbs which is well below the 6,000lbs of your travel trailer. The one thing that I want you to consider is you said you have a 5" Lift. Does that include or exclude any larger tires that may have also been installed. If it doesn't include the tires you might want to consider the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable...

  • How To Lower Bike Rack Connection Without Reducing Weight Capacity
    I do have an option for you to drop the connection point with the bike rack and that is with the Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount part # 325-GH-303. This is one of the only options that won't reduce weight capacity and it can be used for towing a well with the Replacement 2-Ball Mount part # 325-GH-031 if need be. The Roadmaster High-Low Adapter part # RM-048-4 is a more cost effective option but will reduce the weight capacity of the hitch by 50% or 400 lb, whichever is lower.

  • Towing Capacity on Gen-Y Replacement Shank
    Not only does the Gen-Y Replacement Shank # 325-GH-303 have the 10,000-lbs capacity (1500-lbs tongue weight) that you're looking for, it will provide you with a 5" rise or drop, depending on how you decide to use it. This hitch will work with your existing ball mount and give you 7-1/8" of clearance from the center of the hitch pin on the shank to the center of the hitch pin for the ball mount.

  • How Can I Haul My Trailer And Bikes At The Same Time?
    Getting a dual hitch converter will pose some issues with towing. Whenever using an extension of any kind, you will reduce the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. This isn't something you will want if you plan on hauling your trailer with your 2020 Subaru Outback. There are some other options you can use, but this will depend on your trailer. You can use the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # CC-275. I've included a video to show you...

  • Can Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter be Used for Towing and a Bike Rack
    You are on the right track of thinking, but the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-8 actually isn't rated for towing a trailer so we need to look at a slightly different with the Gen-Y Hitches. For your application you could probably use part # 325-GH-303 or # 325-GH-304 as these are somewhat similar to the Roadmaster that you were previously looking at and they are definitely rated for towing and utilizing your bike rack. When it comes to the correct height of your ball...

  • High-Low Adapter Needed for Flat Towing a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara
    Since you can use different brand high-low adapters with any tow bar we actually have flat towing high-low adapters that will work for your situation. Unfortunately none of our dual adapters have the weight capacity to accomplish this. Attached is a link to our selection of high-low adapters that you can filter through. These range from a 2" rise/drop # RM-072-2 all the way to a 10-1/4" rise/drop # RM-048-10. If you're looking for an option with about a 7" drop like what the Malone #...

  • Hitch Adapter for Flat Towing Vehicle and Bike Rack Behind RV
    There are some great options out there for towing a vehicle behind your RV along with a bike rack, and you are heading in the right direction. You are correct that Roadmaster does not make any dual hitch adapters that allow you to use your tow bar in-line with the hitch receiver. The best option available is the Gen-Y # 325-GH-303, which is a more economical alternative to the # 325-GH-314 adapter you were looking at. It also has the same 10,000 lb gross towing weight and 1,500 lb tongue...

  • Drop Shank Adapter For Carrying A Black Widow Motorcycle Carrier Lower On Vehicle For Easier Loading
    I have a recommendation as the Roadmaster High Low Adapter # RM-058-4 is only designed to be used with tow bars and not a motorcycle carrier. The Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-303 gives you 3 stacked receivers. This will give you different options on how much you want to lower your carrier. You can place it level with your receiver, 2-1/2" or 5" of drop. This adapter allows for 1,500lbs of tongue weight and will be able to handle your Black Widow motorcycle...

  • Ball Mount Needed with Longer Shank for Use with a Ford E-350
    I do have a solution for you but the MaxxTow # MT70197 (and all of our other long shank ball mounts) is shorter than the Curt # C45900 that you currently have. You could use a Gen-Y shank like part # 325-GH-303 for a 5" rise/drop or part # 325-GH-304 for a 7-1/2" rise/drop along with the Gen-Y Tri-Ball Mount # 325-GH-034 which comes with 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" hitch balls and has a 12" long shank. Another option is to use a fixed ball mount with a long shank like the Hidden Hitch...

  • Recommended Gen-Y Hitch for 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 and Trailer with DO45 Coupling
    It looks like the pin part of the DO45 (which takes the place of a standard hitch ball) has a shank with a 1-1/4" diameter so I recommend using the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45340 with a Gen-Y hitch as this ball mount has up to a 17K towing capacity. For the Gen-Y hitch it all depends on the height of the trailer and if your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 is stock height or not. If your Chevy is stock height then you should be just fine with the Gen-Y Shank # 325-GH-303 which gives...

  • Distance from Hitch Pin Hole to Edge of Arms on Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack
    From the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge of the arms on the Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack # S63380 measures 38-1/2". The only thing that you're missing is that most dual hitch adapters will reduce the weight rating by 50% and then any hitch extender has a 50% weight reduction as well. To keep your trailer hitch weight rating the highest it can be I recommend using a Gen-Y Hitch like part # 325-GH-303 as the dual hitch adapter because it is built in such a way that Gen-Y...

  • Dual Hitch Receiver for Use with Tow Dolly
    I do have an option for you but they do not make the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount part # D210 with a 4" drop. Instead, I recommend taking a look at the Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount part # 325-GH-303 which can be used as a dual hitch receiver and will allow for you to obtain either a 5" rise/drop, 2-1/2" rise/drop, or 0" rise/drop. We do not have any dual hitch receivers that can be used for a tow dolly and will allow for a 4" drop.

  • Dual Receiver Recommendation for Towing Car and Using Bike Rack Simultaneously
    The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 8" Drop/Rise # RM-077-8 does have the 2 inch receiver like a Class III hitch on both openings but the Roadmaster adapters have a rounded shape to the inside of them to help be a tighter fit on accessories and the shank of your Swagman bike rack, # S64663, is extremely square and won't fit into Roadmaster adapters. Instead you can use the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop/Rise - 10K # 325-GH-303 or 7-1/2"...

  • Recommended Dual Receiver Ball Mount that Wont Reduce Weight Capacity
    The Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver for Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers - 7,500 lbs # D210 is only available with the rise for the receiver accessory and the slight drop for the trailer hitch ball. The best option for what you are seeking is the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2 inch Drop/Rise # 325-GH-3145 or the 5 inch # 325-GH-303 if you want to use a different ball mount. This will allow you to use the bottom receiver for towing and...
