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.

Had to put on Motorhome because Jeep was 4" higher and roadmaster recommends tow bar to be within 3" high or low. Had to extend safety cables

Perfect. Now my hitch is out from under the bumper and easier on my old back when hooking up. Thank you.

The locking pins keyed alike while be convenient! The 2" drop/rise adapter according to the label stuck to it says it is only rated for 100lb tongue wt, but your item description says 200lb tongue wt??.


Comments
Roadmaster has recently completed further testing that has found that the TW capacity of the RM-072-2 is 200 lbs. Going forward, they will be stickered with the new capacity, but the older examples are safe to use with up to 200 lbs of tongue weight.

5 stars all the way. Installation instructions were very good. Everything worked out perfectly and I am very happy with the entire unit. I also appreciate that Steve at etrailer was always available to answer any questions I had.

The offset is a bit longer than I expected. But after I installed it I was able to still use my safety cables and wire harness. The offset I believe will help a lot with handling while pulling my Jeep behind the motor home.

Placed order with Road Master for this Road Master High-Low Drop and they notified me it would be two to four weeks. Canceled order with Road Master and ordered from etrailer. Ordered on Monday and received on Thursday. The two inch rise and ten inch extension was exactly what I needed to pull my CRV behind my B-Plus RV. Needed to raise tow bar two inches to have the three inches minimum height difference and the ten inch extension was needed to clear bicycle rack. Actually called etrailer B4 ordering and talked with a very nice and courteous lady. Thanks etrailer, you made my day.

Just received, but looks like it will be perfect for dropping my RV hitch height 2" to match up with the baseplate on my Jeep Wrangler. Ordered on Sunday and here by mid-day Wed with regular shipping. Hard to beat that! 4th time I've ordered from Etrailer and very happy with the fast service, great pricing, and excellent descriptions that they provide online.

This works perfectly for lowering the hitch height and increasing distance so that my buke rack can fold down and out of the way of my jeep's tailgate.

Old 4" drop hitch was too much for the right fit with our new car. Not everyone carries the 2" drop hitch. We're close to etrailer's supply center and the order was delivered the day after I placed it. Great service and the fit with the towbar was just right!

    Over time the AutowLock buttons of the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 can wear out and need to be replaced. The good news is that we carry a repair kit for this to get it back to normal. For that you would need the part # RM-910003-60.

  • 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.

  • Hitch Pin and Lock Recommendations for Roadmaster High/Low Adapters
    The High/low adapter # RM-072-2 does not come with a hitch pin. It takes a 5/8 inch diameter pin or lock. For a regular pin and clip you can use # PC3. For a lock you can use # RM-316 which is a set of 2 that are keyed alike.

    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 #...

  • How to Pick Out Correct Rise/Drop High Low Adapter for Flat Towing Vehicle
    If you check out the picture I attached you can see that when picking out a high low adapter for a flat towing setup you need to have the tow bar sit within 3 inches of level to be "safe." Otherwise suspension and tire damage might occur. First thing you need to do is measure from the ground to the top of your hitch opening on your tow vehicle and then measure from the ground to the center of your base plate kit on your towed vehicle. The difference in these two figures is the amount...

  • High/Low Hitch Adapter to Keep Nighthawk Tow Bar RM-677 Level for Best Operation
    Roadmaster does specify the 3-inch safe zone for tow bar height differences at the motorhome and toad ends. Really any tow bar will perform better when it is level since there will be less arm tube friction. A level tow bar will also endure less mechanical stress and it will put less stress on the base plates, the towed vehicle's frame and its suspension. Since you have invested in the Nighthawk # RM-677, one of the best tow bars available, I recommend you protect your investment...

  • Which High/Low Adapter for Flat Towing Lifted Jeep
    You'll need a high/low adapter to bring the tow bar within 3 inches +/- of level. The adapter you need will depend on the height difference between the base plates and the receiver on the motorhome/tow vehicle. Roadmaster offers several different adapters: • For a 2 inch rise/drop, use # RM-072-2 • For a 4 inch rise/drop, use # RM-070 • For a 6 inch rise/drop, use # RM-048-6 • For a 8 inch rise/drop, use # RM-048-8 • For a 10-1/4 inch rise/drop, use # RM-048-10 I've linked...

  • How To Raise Generator Carrier on the Back Of a Winnebago Travato
    I do have an option for you but none of the suspension enhancements we have for your 2019 Winnebago Travato 59K on a Ram ProMaster 3500 Chassis will lift the motorhome from stock height. The SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway Control Kit part # SSA11 which is what I recommend will prevent the motorhome from sagging therefore increasing clearance but again nothing we offer will raise the rear of the motorhome from stock.

  • Hitch Extender for Swagman XTC2 With a Drop For Spare Tire and Tailgate Function
    For your Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 you can use the Curt Dual 2" Receiver Tube Adapter, 8" Extension # D-192 and simply invert it so the bike carrier tube is lower than the receiver tube. This will move your bike rack down about 5-1/4 inches and extend it 8 inches to give you spare tire clearance. This adapter will decrease your hitches tongue weight capacity by 50% but that shouldn't be an issue with a 2 bike carrier on a Jeep. If you want a 2 inch drop, you can use the Roadmaster High-Low...
