  • Tongue weight: 200 lbs
  • Gross towing weight: 6,000 lbs

Dimensions

Note: This adapter is designed to flat tow a vehicle only. Do not use to tow a trailer. When using with a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, the tongue weight of your hitch will be reduced by at least 50 percent.


Most tow systems require some sort of hitch accessory to either raise or lower the tow bar to an appropriate level. The "Safe Zone" for a motor-home-mounted tow bar ranges from 3" above level to 3" 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.

RoadMaster High-Low Drop - 4" - 6,000 lbs GTW; 100 lbs TW. Bought this to help raise our hitch so that the piece of equipment we need to haul weekly did not drag. It does exactly what it said it would do and more. It also gives us enough room to be able to open the hatch of our vehicle. It's exactly what we needed. The company who installed our hitch said no one made something like this. How wrong they were! Great product. 207311

I bought this in order to extend and lower a Thule T2 bike rack away from the spare tire on the back of a Jeep Wrangler. The stock hitch mount location left the bike rack in the way of the spare tire when trying to fold the rack into the up position - and when lowering the rack to gain access to the rear of the vehicle. This hitch extension gave me the perfect amount of clearance to implement all of the rack's operating positions. It's extremely well-made and super-duty. It's probably overkill for what I'm using it for, but I wanted the peace of mind that my rack and bikes were riding extra safely. I was a bit worried that lowering the hitch would give me ground clearance issues, but those fears were unfounded. I still have plenty of room under there, and I can cross steep rail crossings without anything dragging. For added peace of mind, I also ordered the anti-rattle lock (part #63232) and the quiet hitch (part # RM-061). The anti-rattle lock keeps this extension from being stolen. It also eliminates any side to side movement the extension has in the hitch. The anti-rattle lock cuts down on almost all movement of the extension in the hitch; however, there was still a small amount of up and down movement. With the combination of the lock and the quiet hitch, the connection feels like it's welded on. If I was strong enough, I could lift the entire Jeep off the ground with this thing! I'm really satisfied with the setup. 10531

Thad,I recently got the 6 for my 2015 Wrangler, same reasons as you mentioned.Not knowing anything about TW, I didnt consider this in the purchase maximum 100 Lb. The Thule T2 is a pretty hefty rack and with 2 Mountain bikes on it, I would say its around 80-100 Lbs.Have you had any problems?When I sent in my review is when they cautioned me.

Jeff, I have had zero issues with this extension or the Thule T2. My friends and I ride fat bikes. If youre familiar with them, theyre quite a bit heavier than a regular mountain bike. Ive had two fat bikes on that rack setup on many occasions. No problem.

Thanks for your follow up, but I would like to remind you that you will want to make sure that with your bikes loaded you will want to be within the tongue weight capacities of this high low adapter. Jeff, the Roadmaster High-Low adapters come in 2 different tonge weight capacities, you might consider the higher option that allows up to 400 pounds of tongue weight. These higher tounge weight capacity adapters have a solid shank which gives it the higher capacity, and the option with the same 4 inch drop would be RM-048-4.

The RoadMaster drop down hitch would simply not fit my towbar. The towbar was not unique in the 2” hitch fitting as I confirmed with BlueOx and it fit the hitch on my RV just fine. The Roadmaster drop down hitch would fit my RV 2” hitch fine but the side for the towbar just would not budge. Once eTrailer Customer Service understood the issue they promptly sent me a pre-paid return label and provided a full refund. I believe the issue was a manufacturer defect. Very impressed with etrailer Customer Service and extremely happy with the return and refund process! Outstanding Customer Service and I would definitely buy from them again in the future. 391416

The length is TOO long. I did not need an extension, just the drop. The tow assembly I am using already has about a 15" extension. This unit extends the towed vehicle another 12-15". I plan to drill a hole closer to the drop to shorten the extension. 443800

The offset hitch is everything that it was advertised to be. I am offsetting my hitch up and around the bumper on my motor home. The extra long 4" offset hitch worked perfect. Now the hitch is level with the tow bar on my Jeep. The delivery was fast and customer service was friendly. 433466

I bought an Erickson Big Bed Extender for hauling row boats , but, it was 4" higher than the bed of my Tacoma. Fortunately this 4" adaptor that was just what I needed. Also when I screwed up the address I got an email and then a call from a real person who helped me straighten things out. 432615

Have a lifted jeep wrangler and need to raise the hitch to keep the tow bar level. This is the perfect hitch for my needs.

  • Recommended Adapter for Ground Clearance of Bike Rack
  • The Curt Dual 2" Receiver Tube Adapter, 8" Extension # D-192 will work well to give you the extra height you desire but using any adapter will reduce your hitch tongue weight by 50%. This won't be an issue with a Curt Class III hitch is you just use your Ridgeback # Y02457. A similar option for more height is the Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver # MPG544 but it will also extend the length of the hitch 2-1/2 more inches than the # D-192.

  • Hitch Extension Recommendation for Clearing Spare Tire of 2012 Jeep Wrangler with Bike Rack
  • Since your 2012 Jeep Wrangler would have a 2 inch hitch the adapter you'd want is the Roadmaster part # RM-070 instead as the one you mentioned is for a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch. Then for a locking anti-rattle device we have the Anti-Rattle Device part # 63232 which would work well. It's a lock that holds the shank of the adapter tight to the hitch tube to prevent movement.

  • Choosing a Ball Mount
  • I think we can help you out here. We have several different adjustable ball mounts and ball mounts with with a fixed drop. If you are going to tow only one particular trailer, a fixed ballmount would probably be your best bet. To determine the rise/drop needed, measure from the top of the receiver to the ground. Then, with the trailer level, measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. The difference between these two measurements is the rise or drop you will need. The adjustable...

  • Need Cargo Carrier That Sits Far Enough Away From Dual Exhaust on 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • I recommend taking a look at the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18153. This carrier has a shank rise of 2 inches and the closest edge of the carrier will sit approximately 15 inches from the bumper of your 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you feel that this carrier will still sit too close to the dual exhaust on your Cherokee, you could use the Curt Dual 2 inch Receiver Tube Adapter, # D-192, which will raise the carrier 5-1/4 inches and push it 8 inches further away from the vehicle.

  • High-Low Adapter to Tow a Mini Cooper Behind a Motor Home
  • Most tow bars have a certain range in which they can work. That range is usually 3 inches off from level. A 6 inch drop would get you as close to level as you are going to get which is great. There is a chance that because the base plate connections on the Mini are so low that you could end up making contact with the ground and the adapter on uneven terrain or steep grades but for the most part in everyday towing situations it would not be a problem. What you could do is use an adapter...

  • Tongue Weight Capacity of RoadMaster High-Low Drop Adapter # RM-070
  • When you have all 4 wheels of the toad on the ground, the tongue weight is next to nothing. The 100 pound rating does account for sudden but brief increases in tongue weight such as bumps in the road. The idea of using a high-low adapter like # RM-070 is so that the tow bar is level. A level tow bar means the tongue weight will be low.

  • Will Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-070 Work with Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar and Tow Defender
  • The Roadmaster High-Low Adapter, part # RM-070, is designed for use with a tow bar only. It will work with the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar, part # RM-522, you have referenced. This adapter is meant to be used when towing a rolling load on four wheels so it will not encounter any tongue weight or downward force of over 100 lbs. The tongue weight you will have on the adapter when towing a vehicle with the four wheels down will mainly be the weight of the stinger that is inserted...

  • 4 Inch High/Low Adapter Recommendation for a 2001 Fleedwood Bounder Towing 2013 Honda Fit
  • I would go with the 4 inch drop like the RoadMaster High-Low Adapter part # RM-070 that you referenced for your 2013 Honda Fit being towed by a 2001 Fleetwood Bounder Class A motorhome. That would put you withing a 1/2 of an inch of being perfectly level and I believe would be your best option without breaking the bank on a 3 inch drop adapter like the Blue Ox High-Low Adapter # BX88235.

  • Can Roadmaster High Low Adapter with Lower Capacity that Tow Bar Be Used Safely
  • As long as the tow bar and high-low adapter are rated for at least the weight of the vehicle you are flat towing you'd be fine with one being rated for less weight. So if the 4 inch high-low adapter part # RM-070 will allow your to tow your Colorado level and the vehicle weighs less than 6,000 lbs this would be a great solution that would be perfectly safe. From what I was able to find your Colorado would weigh at most 4,520 lbs so you'd be fine.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2002 Jeep Wrangler with Lift Kit and Double Tube Style Bumper

These base plates were designed to fit a 2002 Jeep Wrangler with double-tube style bumpers. They bolt directly to the frame and have the capacity to pull the Jeep. For a tow bar, the most popular option for the XL base plates is the Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520. I have included a link to the installation details and a link to a video review of the tow...

  • 4 Inch High-Low Drop used with Cargo Carrier
  • I would not use part # RM-070 with your cargo carrier. It is meant for use with a towbar while towing a vehicle on all 4 wheels and does not have a weight capacity suitable for cargo carriers. The part that would work for your application is part # V75090. It has a tongue capacity of 500 pounds, meaning that the total weight of your cargo carrier and cargo cannot exceed 500 lbs. It will provide 6 inches of rise to get your carrier away from the exhaust.

  • Dimensions Between Hitch Pin Holes on Roadmaster 2 Inch Rise/Drop Adapter # RM-072-2
  • The Roadmaster 2 Inch Rise/Drop Adapter, part # RM-072-2 and the Roadmaster 4 Inch Rise/Drop Adapter, part # RM-070 has a measurement of 10-1/4 inches between the center of both hitch pin holes. So if you measure on your hitch receiver from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the rear of the vehicle, the measurement listed above will give you an idea of how far out the adapters will be from your hitch receiver.

  • How to Measure to Determine the Right High/Low Adapter Needed to Flat Tow a Honda Fit Level
  • To determine which hi/low adapter is needed when flat towing your Honda Fit you will first need to have both the vehicle and the RV parked on level ground. On the RV, measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the trailer hitch. Then on the Fit, measure from the ground up to the center of the base plate brackets the tow bar attaches to. The RV is likely higher so the difference in height is the amount of drop you will need.

  • How Much Length Will the RoadMaster High-Low Drop # RM-070 Add to Flat Towing Setup
  • The RoadMaster High-Low Drop # RM-070 would extend your tow bar out about an additional 10 inches. If you don't need the additional drop of 4 inches then this adapter wouldn't be needed as it is not a requirement for flat towing a vehicle. If you did need it the additional length wouldn't be too big of a deal. When you are already flat towing a vehicle behind your RV what's another 10 inches? I attached a picture that shows this adapter being used to flat tow a Mazda Miata.

  • Hitch and Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2008 Nissan Rogue

Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes...

  • Availability of Hitch Adapter With a 4 Inch Rise That Will Fit a Thule Bike Rack
  • You can use the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, part # D210, with a Thule bike rack that fits a 2 inch receiver. The ball mount receiver has a high enough tongue weight capacity at 350 pounds to handle the weight of the rack plus the bikes, and the drawbar has a total tongue weight capacity of 750 pounds. It will provide a rise of 4-3/4 inches above the top of the receiver opening on the hitch. It will help with bottoming out on vehicles that have low ground clearance.

  • Cargo Carrier With Rise Shank Recommendation for a 2014 Toyota Sienna and Curt Hitch
  • The best solution I can recommend for you would be to get a cargo carrier with a rise built into the shank so that it would sit high enough so that it wouldn't drag. The # RM-070 that you referenced has only been tested for use in flat towing setups. If you used it with a cargo carrier you would void the warranty. For a cargo carrier with 4-1/2 inches of rise I would recommend the Rola Cargo Carrier part # 59550. Check out the review video I attached as well. I know this probably...

  • You can use the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, part # D210. It will provide a rise of 4-3/4 inches above the top of the receiver opening on the hitch. This should provide you with the additional height you need, plus the ball mount receiver has a high enough tongue weight capacity at 350 pounds to handle the weight of your sign pretty easily. You should note that when you use any type of adapter or extender you cut the tongue weight capacity of the hitch in half. So whatever the capacity...

  • 2007 Lincoln Navagater to carry a power chair on carrier about 420 Lbs
  • You are correct. The RoadMaster 4 Inch Hi-Lo Drop, part # RM-070 is meant for use with a tow bar used for towing a vehicle. It is meant to tow a rolling load, not a situation where more than 100 lbs of downward force is applied to it.
