Video Transcript for Reese Trailer Hitch RP3022 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the spacer block. This spacer block is normally used in a situation where you're going to be using a fish wire or a bolt leader, something like this, to bring a bolt through a hole that's in a closed vehicle frame. You want to use the spacer block with the bolt, usually like a carriage bolt like this that would go through the spacer block. You want to hold that into the frame. You'll use the bolt leader or fish wire to attach to the end of this bolt, along with the spacer block, and bring it through the hole in the frame. When you detach the bolt leader, it will leave your bolt sticking out thought the vehicle frame to allow you to hook your trailer hitch to your fifth wheel, your gooseneck, or any other item like that. Just to give you a few dimensions on this spacer block, overall length on it, it's going to be right at three inches.

The width on it is right at one inch. The thickness is right at a quarter inch. That should do it for the review on the spacer block.

Replaces (1) 3" long x 1" wide x 1/4" thick spacer block for your trailer hitch receiver.


A police car pulled into my lane and hit me head on. I escaped without injury but my car was totalled ( photo attached). I salvaged my brand new trailer hitch but the company that put it on would not install it on my new car because there were two bolts and spacers I was unable to recover. Luckily I learned they got the hitch from etrailer. I called and got Rose who was very friendly and helpful and soon had my parts on their way to me. Wish all my purchases were this easy.


I purchased a used hitch for my CRV and did not have all the hardware to install it. I called etrailer and received great customer service and was able to get all the hardware that I needed to make the installation a breeze. I would definitely recommend the bolt leaders if you're going to be doing installation yourself it made the job a lot easier on me.


Worked perfectly as I was installing my trailer hitch, which is a simple task but ran into an issue. The bolt holes were pretty corroded on the right side so they needed the threads cleaned, with good ole WD 40 I continued to clean with a tap. After getting 2 done the center one weld nut break off inside the frame, as they have very small tack welds from factory holding them on. So I ordered up this bolt, plate, washer, leader, and a nut to fix the issue, it was simple and an easy fix to a problem at first I wasnt sure how I was going to fix. Fast shipping from and it was done ready to be used in a jiffy. Highly recommend

Ryan T.


The parts are doing what they were intended to do and super happy with my purchases. If I am ever in need for future vehicles etc I wouldnt hesitate to buy from you again. Thanks again Ryan thumbs up


Product was fine, I had to take the hitch to my local shop because I couldn't get the last bolt through to complete the installation. My SUV really benefited from being put on a lift by my local shop, they completed the installation.


This product is a great replacement for the electric heads. No more worying about a dead motor or not electric to bring your awning back in.


Delivery was fast. Wanted to put hitch on
A different car(same model/year) and not used stressed bolts. Needed spacers and leaders so purchased the items needed from one location,in one box.


I haven't used this product yet; however, I am 100% satisfied of the communication with etrailer regarding this product of being on hold to them. I still received it quickly and uneventfully. I order 10 and got 10 even though I just needed 2 because I am sure this item will come in handy with other applications other than reattaching receiver hitches. The carriage bolts required for this product was easily located at the local Tractor Supply.

Thanks etrailer


How easy was the install of my 2008 Ford Escape hitch?

I watched the video and then I installed my hitch two days before I was scheduled for rotary cuff surgery. My right shoulder was more cosmetic than functional for heavy lifting. So, patiently, with jacks at the ready, I installed my hitch. I had to call on my wife once to hold a screw driver, otherwise, I did it solo.

In total, it took less than an hour and I needed one arm, an adjustable wrench, vise grips to hold the lead wire, some floor jacks and a wife (for about 15 seconds after she stopped asking questions.)

I didn't do the electrical, because I'm using it for bike racks only.


Received the spacer blocks today and they are excellent. Good quality and they are very difficult to find. I read several internet forums topics where people spent loads of time and money trying to create these things. This is the cheapest and simplest option i could find on the internet. Also the bolt leaders save a lot of time from trying to devise a solution to pull a bolt through narrow frame rails. With these leaders the bolt hole only needs to be as big as the bolt itself because the leader does not take up any space and holds the bolt very securely.


A new-to-me truck meant a
new hitch installation. Needing the mounting hardware for a hitch that I already own, I tried several local vendors for the needed parts to no avail. After a brief internet search, I easily located the bolts, nuts, washers, and fish wire on your website and placed an order. Then, WOW! The level of attention and communication from your staff regarding my order was incredible. The order and the communication was timely, accurate, and thorough. I am now a loyal customer. Thanks for the great experience! Wish me luck in not busting my knuckles during installation.



I applaud after I did not receive my order in a reasonable amount of time, I called and they were very responsive and quickly got my order to me. Great job! This unique product was tough to find anywhere else and it will work great when I install my receiver hitch assembly.


Received my package for lost parts for my Curt 13333 hitch for my Ram 1500. I thought shipping was a little exaggerated for 4 small parts, but this was the only places I could find them. Prices for the actual parts were excellent.

The spacers were simple steel with a square hole in them, not a big thing, but difficult to find elsewhere and impossible for a DIYer to make.

Be warned, if you plan on purchasing item 8101-1, the 1/2" bolt leader, they are cut WAY TOO SHORT. Plan on buying 2 and make small hooks on the ends and tape the ends together, that's the only way to use them.


Thus is a bad news good need review. The package was delivered as told bad news the package was damaged and spacers missing. Good news call to customer service was quickly answered and a re ship was done same day.

I have bought several things from etrailer always as promised with some of the best customer service of any online company I buy from.

I used this to help with a Jeep XJ trailer hitch install. I pretty much destroyed the install wires due to the way I had to fish the parts through the frame area, but the install was successful.


So glad I called. I thought there was no way they would have the oddball spacer I needed for a trailer hitch install but I had the parts in a couple days! Awesome!


Thanks etrailer for the parts to install a hitch receiver on my son's 08 Ford Escape Hybrid. I had the receiver but not the hardware backing plates. these fit perfectly. reasonable prices and quick shipping.


This carriage bolt block was impossible to find locally. Couple this with the bolt leader wire and the how to video on this website and I had zero issues. I was actually amazed at how quickly I was able to fish the bolt/spacer combo into the frame of my car to fix the broken weld but issue. Now all I need is the bolt up the hitch. Thanks etrailer!


The hole in the block must be in Metric size for a Canadian built vehicle. Otherwise the Receiver is very versatile. First as a receiver, second to hold a winch, third to hold a boat cradle over the roof of the truck.

These are typically used with a bolt leader to bring a bolt through a hole in a closed vehicle frame. This spacer block fits a half inch carriage bolt.


Part are as stated and will work well on hitch install
Did take extra time for delivery due to supply chain issue
No fault of etrailer
Communication with me was excellent


glad to see you can buy parts individually to put on a trailer hitch

Russell A.


very good product to get the job done right


My overall experience was excellent with this company. They have instructional videos available that made all the difference in the world when it came to installing my hitch after breaking two of the welded frame nuts removing rusted bolts that had to come out. I'm not sure I would have figured out without the videos. The hitch is on and I am ready to roll!


Short in hitch package purchased elsewhere, needed 2 of these and 4 reinforcements.
Looked for two weeks on the internet before finding on delivered quickly, Now can finish hitch install.


I looked everywhere locally for this part - including 3 hitch installation shops. Nobody would sell it to me. The manufacturer's website would ALSO not sell it. Then I saw an ad for etrailer and gave it a look. They had the part and I received it in 3 days. Saved me $100 by being able to install the hitch myself. etrailer ROCKS


(RP-01266-007, 80101-1)
My Odyssey had
a missing weld nut, etrailer and their team had the answer. From the parts to the helpful video's - kudo's to etrailer and their great support!

I was able to install my receiver and wiring harness - thank you!


Can't get this part (carraige bolt spacer with square hole) anywhere except, unless you buy a new hitch.
Went to uhaul, home depot, lowes, fatenel and other fastener places, ebay and amazon all with negative results, thank God for!!!

  • What is the Trailer Hitch Spacer Block Made From
    The Trailer Hitch Spacer Block - 3" Long x 1" Wide x 1/4" Thick # RP3022 is made of carbon steel, so it will be susceptible to corrosion. You could put a coating of some sort of Plasti-dip type substance on this before installation to help protect against that, but I don't believe it's completely necessary because of the typical use of this part will shield it from most direct exposure to moisture.

  • How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2005 Honda Pilot with 2 Broken Weldnuts in the Frame
    When using replacement hardware kit # RHK you would get the same hardware that originally came with the kit (some specialty pieces may not be included). Since you have broken weldnuts the only thing you can do is use a block and carriage bolt, drop them down through the frame using the fishwire technique and then use a nut to secure the hitch to that bolt. This is assuming you do not want to go through the trouble or expense of having new weldnuts professionally installed in the frame.

  • How is Hole Enlarged Typically on 2011 Honda CR-V to Install Curt Trailer Hitch
    To install the Curt hitch # C11555 you only need to shave down the edge of the holes slightly until you are able to slide in the 1 inch x 3 inch spacers. This can be done with a metal file or a rotary tool like a dremel like you mentioned would work as well.

  • Completing Hitch Install on 2008 Toyota RAV4 after Weld Nut Breaks
    Your best bet would be to use the spacer block you referenced, in conjunction with a grade 5 or higher, 1/2 inch by 1-1/2 inch carriage bolt, lock washer and nut. You would use a fish wire like part # 80101-1 to fish the bolt and the block washer up into the frame member through the access hole shown in the photo and out the hole where you want to install the hitch. You might need to slightly enlarge the access hole as shown in order for the head of the carriage bolt and the block washer...

    A grade 8 carriage bolt would be fine to use to install the # 75684 and is comparable to the metric 10.9.

You can use the bolt leader to fishwire the bolts and blocks through an opening in your frame to get them in place for installation. I have attached a helpful video to show what the process is like along with an installation video of the hitch itself.

  • Having Trouble Getting Curt Trailer hitch to Sit Flush on the Frame of a 2015 Toyota Highlander
    It is not uncommon for some hitch installations to require spacer blocks of some kind to get the hitch to install properly. If they are required in your situation then it is permissible to use them. A spacer block such as # RP3022 could be used unless Curt recommended to you a specific spacer. You will want to make sure the hitch is level by using spacer blocks equally on the left and right side as needed. Since this is on a very new vehicle, the material that is causing the fit issue...

  • Bolt for Hitch Will Not Torque Down
    If a bolt will not torque down while installing a trailer hitch this means the bolt was likely cross threaded. There are a few options to fix this, the first would be drill out and then re-tap the hole with the next largest thread size using a kit like the Tap Wrench Kit for Standard Pipe Sizes part # PT22FR. The weld nut however could break when tightening down the new bolt so in which case the final option would be to drill the rest of the weld nut out and then using a spacer block like...

  • How To Install etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver On a 2007 Honda Pilot With Broken Off Weld Nuts
    We do not have a specific kit for attaching our etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98851 to your 2007 Honda Pilot with broken weld nuts. The best option would be to have your mechanic weld in some new weld nuts for the M12 - 1.25 hardware used for this receiver. Otherwise we do have the Square Hole Spacers # RP3022 and Bolt Leaders # 80101-1 you would need, but you would need to source the rest of the mounting hardware locally since these will require different carriage bolts.
