Video Transcript for Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Road Master Hitch Extender for 2 inch hitch receivers, available in 2 sizes. The 11 inch long version, it's part number RM-071 or part number RM-071-1075 for the 7.5 inch version. Here you'll see we've got our tight angle turned here with our Falcon 2 tow bar. Plenty of space here. That's going to be until our customer puts his basket back on the back of his coach here. He's got a basket that's about as wide as the back of the coach and it sticks out a couple of feet.

You can imagine if that basket we're hanging back here, we're going to have some interference issues when it comes to making these sharp corners. That extender, we're able to move this pin hole out 11 inches and it's going to give us that much more room for clearance. Now you'll see in that same turn situation we're going to have a lot more room here. Some items on the back like our customer's basket, maybe spare tire holders, maybe ladders or back racks that come down are going to have a lot more room for clearance. The extension offers a black powder coat finish and sturdy steel constructions so it should last a long time for us. Now, the measurements on the extender is going to be 11 inches from the center of the hitch pin holder to the center of hitch pin holder. It's really going to give us good clearance there.

It's going to slide right into the standard 2 inch by 2 inch receiver tube opening. We can simply slide in our pin and clip and we'll secure it there, holding it in place. This is going to maintain a 6,000 pound capacity. Our vehicle can up to 6,000 pounds and it offers us a 200 pound tongue weight rating. That's the maximum downward force we can put down here at the receiver tube opening. Not a very big deal in this situation because there's not a lot of tongue weight when it comes to flat towing a vehicle.

We can take our tow bar and slide that on in. Line up those pin holes and slide through a pin and clip. Now this isn't provided so you'll want to be sure to pick one up. Part number on our website there is PC3. That's going to complete our look at the Road Master Hitch Extender for 2 inch Hitch Receivers..

We are extremely pleased with the customer service received by etrailer, we searched all local area businesses for our hitch extender to add that extra few inches to allow us to tow our boat behind our truck camper and found there was no businesses that carried it locally. We received our product in a timely manner and packaged well. 265901

This hitch extender will allow us to carry our bikes on the back of our RV. The bike rack was too short to fit outside of the step. This extender takes care of the problem nicely. We were so happy to find the extender! 409045

It is what it is... makes it to where you can actually pull something that doesn't have a 5ft tounge on it with your ranger/sXs but it does fit lose in the receiver so if you want a tight fit a little modifying is in order i.e put a few weld beads on it and grind smooth 404971

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Accessories and Parts
Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Pin Hole to Pin Hole Dimension on RoadMaster High/Low Receiver
  • The pin hole to pin hole distance of the # RM-048-4 is 9-5/8". The Blue Ox # BX88241 has a pin hole to pin hole length of 12 inches, but it also has a rise/drop of 7 inches. This will be crucial to picking out the right adapter for your RV, see attached Help Article. Two adapters that are similar to the Roadmaster one you were looking at are the Blue Ox # BX88235, with the length from center of pin hole to center of pin hole is 10-1/8" and the Roadmaster # RM-076 has a pin hole to...

  • Availability of Hitch Extension To Keep Pickup From Hitting RV When Being Flat Towed
  • The Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter, part # RM-048-8, will extend the truck further away from the RV, but it will also change the height of your tow bar connection. It has a 8 inch rise or drop which will either raise or lower the tow bar connection of your pickup to the RV. If you have a level connection now you will not want to use the # RM-048-8 to extend your vehicle away from the RV. The end of the tow bar that attaches to the base plates on the vehicle should not exceed a rise...

  • Could I Use a Hitch Extender For Additional Clearance When Towing My Trailer
  • This Roadmaster Trailer Hitch Extension # RM-071 would not be the correct hitch extension for you. You might be able to use an 8 Inch Hitch Extender for 2 inch hitches # 80307. However, you should note that if you use a hitch extender you essentially cut the towing capacities of the hitch in half. The # RM-071 that you referenced is designed for flat-towing purposes only. I attached an FAQ article on hitch extenders for you to check out also.

  • Recommendation For Hitch Extender or Longer Ball Mount To Tow Trailer With Dodge Ram 3500
  • I would recommend to use a longer ball mount instead of a hitch extender. When using a hitch extender the tongue weight capacity is reduced by 50 percent, so a hitch that has a 600-lb tongue weight capacity will be reduced to 300 lbs. If you have a 2 inch hitch on your Dodge 3500 truck and use a longer ball mount like the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount, part # 80232, it will not reduce the tongue weight capacity and it measures 15-3/4 inches from the center of hitch pin hole to center of hitch...

  • Roadmaster Hitch Extension Availability for Roadmaster Flat Towing Setup
  • That's going to depend on how much extension you'd need. From Roadmaster we have the part # RM-071 which is 11 inches or the part # RM-071-75 which is 7-3/4 inches long. If you needed something different let me know and I can see what we have that might work.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Extender for Truck Bed Camper and Boat Trailer Combination
  • The Roadmaster Hitch Extender for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 11" Extension # RM-071 is the only extension we have to fit your combination as it stands. The only other option you have for that trailer weight is to get a Torklift hitch and a SuperTruss Extension that would be longer but also stronger. They are really well made, and will cost you some money, but would definitely be the best option for your application. If you let me know the year/make/model of truck, I'll be happy to further...

  • Weight Capacity of the Roadmaster Trailer Hitch Extension RM-071
  • The Roadmaster Hitch Extender part # RM-071 has a 6,000 lb total towing capacity and a 200 lb tongue weight capacity.

  • Can I Use A Ball Mount Extension With A Flat Tow Setup
  • In order to extend your ball mount out 8-10" from the hitch receiver, you will want the Roadmaster Hitch Extender for Tow Bars part # RM-071. The hitch is rated for use with a max gross trailer weight of 6,000 lbs and a max tongue weight rating of 100 lbs which is more than enough to flat tow your Jeep. To secure the hitch extension to your hitch, you may want to consider the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # 40107. I have attached a product review of both items for your viewing.

  • Why is Tongue Weight of Roadmaster Hitch Extender # RM-071 100 lbs
  • The Roadmaster Hitch Extender part # RM-071 that you referenced is designed to be used only in flat towing situations where there wouldn't be hardly any tongue weight. This is due to the fact that the vehicle being towed has all 4 wheels on the ground unlike a trailer that only has one axle. It's not rated for trailer use, but it can be used when flat towing a vehicle up to 6,000 lbs. Even our most heavy duty hitch extenders like the Torklift Super Truss part # TLE1521 have lower...

  • Using Hitch Extender on 2012 Jeep Wrangler so Cargo Carrier Clears Spare Tire
  • The particular extender you referenced, part # RM-071 is designed for a rolling load, like flat towing a vehicle behind a motorhome. It is not intended for use with a hitch-mounted accessory like a cargo carrier. An extender like part # MT70024 that offers 12 inches of extension would be a better choice. Using any hitch extender will lower the tongue weight capacity (the maximum amount of weight that can safely be suspended from the hitch) by 50 percent. All of the 2 inch receiver hitches...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Extender for Class V Hitch
  • Hitch extenders are not rated based on Class III, IV, or V. The use of a hitch extension in most cases will reduce the tongue weight of your hitch by 50%. There is not a 10 inch option, but there are many similar sizes that may work for your application. For instance, the Roadmaster Hitch Extender for Tow Bars--11 inches # RM-071 has a towing capacity of 6,000 lbs but only a tongue weight rating of 100 lbs. It is designed to be used for flat towing. The MaxxTow Hitch Extender...

  • Why Does the Roadmaster Hitch Extender Part # RM-071 Only Have a 100 Lb Tongue Weight Capacity
  • The Roadmaster Hitch Extender part # RM-071 is designed specifically for flat towing. A toad vehicle will not have much of a tongue weigh at all which is why this adapter is only rated for 100 lbs tongue weight (TW) and 6,000 lbs gross trailer weight (GTW). I have attached a review video on the extender for you as well.

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for Use with the Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter # RM-048-10
  • I have a solution for you that will get you within 1 inch of the extension you need, but the # MT70024 would not be the correct extension to use. Instead you would want the Roadmaster Trailer Hitch Extension # RM-071 to go with the Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter # RM-048-10.

  • Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver for Cargo Carrier
  • You can use your cargo carrier and tow a trailer with your Sea-Doos by using the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver for Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers # D210. The ball mount has a 7,500 lb towing capacity and 750 lb tongue weight capacity and the receiver has a 350 lb tongue weight capacity. The ball mount will require a hitch ball with a 1" shank, so if you do not already use one you need either # C40051 for a 1-7/8" hitch ball or # 63845 for a 2" hitch ball. If you do...

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for Use with Tow Bar and AutoStop Braking System
  • The Roadmaster hitch extender part # RM-071 is designed for flat towing applications and would work well for you to get an additional 11 inches from your tow bar setup so that you can make tighter turns. Let me know if you need something different though and with more info I can see what your best option would be.
