  • Hitch Adapter
  • Roadmaster
  • High-Low Adapter
  • Fits 2 Inch Hitch
  • 6 Inch Rise/Drop

Make up for the height difference between your RV and towed vehicle with this hitch adapter. Provides either a 6" drop or a 6" rise. Hollow shank is lightweight.


Features:

  • Allows for proper positioning of tow bar
    • Makes up for height difference between RV's hitch and towed vehicle's base plates
    • Also lets you mount a bike rack, cargo carrier, or other 2" hitch accessory
  • Provides either drop or rise for adequate ground clearance
  • Constructed of sturdy steel
    • Hollow shank is lightweight
  • Resists rust and corrosion with black powder coat finish
  • Hitch pin and clip or hitch lock sold separately
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: 2" x 2" trailer hitch receivers
  • Drop/rise: 6"
  • Receiver: 2" x 2"
  • Tongue weight: 200 lbs
  • Gross towing weight: 6,000 lbs
  • Length: 15" overall
    • 5" From center of hitch pin hole to angled brace
    • 10-1/4" From center of hitch pin hole to back of receiver tube
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


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.

I'm giving this 5 stars for build quality but only 3 stars for design. I would have loved if this came directly down instead of reaching out. It essentially added a foot to the tow bar setup I am using due to the rather large offset between the upper and lower pin hole locations. As usual Etrailer shipping was fast and well packed. 726158

I received the Roadmaster High-Low Adaptor Hitch Mount in 2 days. It is exactly how it was described and pictured in the catalog. It is heavy duty with a 6000 lb tow rating. My tow vehicle is 4400 lbs so I don't anticipate any problems. I haven't used it yet, other than inserting it into the receiver. It will solve the tow bar level issue with the tow vehicle. 661393

  • Will Hitch Adapter With 200 lb Tongue Weight Capacity Work for Higher Weight
    We may have an option for you, though the High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars # RM-076 you referenced has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs and using a bike rack and bikes with a weight that exceeds that is not recommended as it does not have the strength of stability. Using any hitch adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent, so please keep that in mind. What may work for you is the MaxxTow Dual Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches # MT70070 which has a...

  • High Low Adapter Recommendation for Toyota Sienna Bike Rack
    Sounds like you'd want the Roadmaster High Low Adapter part # RM-076 which can give you a 6 inch rise. It also will work as a hitch extender like you have already too. I attached a picture that shows dimensions of this adapter for you to check out as well. You should note that adapters like this (and the one you currently have) cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent.

  • Solution for Flat Towed Vehicle's Wheels that Don't Turn as the Tow Vehicle Turns
    Is the tow bar sitting level? Normally if there's a steering axle issue with the vehicle be flat towed the problem is due to the tow bar not sitting as level as it's needed to be. Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing. I attached a link to a page that has all of the ones we carry as well as a help article that details how to pick out the correct one like the Roadmaster # RM-076 which can give you either a 6 inch drop...

  • Effects on Tongue Weight Capacity from Using Hitch Adapter/Extender
    Any hitch adapter/extender, including the Roadmaster # RM-076 which is intended primarily for flat towing a vehicle with a tow bar, will cause a loss of half of your hitch's rated tongue weight (TW)capacity. This occurs due to the load being further away from the hitch, which applies more leverage on the hitch tube. If your hitch's safety sticker says, for example, that it has a 500-lb TW rating then this instantly becomes 250-lbs if an adapter/extender is used. This item itself carries...

  • When Flat Towing a Vehicle Behind a Motorhome How Close to Level Should Tow Bar Be
    When you're flat towing a vehicle, you want the tow bar to be within 3 inches plus or minus of level. If you're outside that range, you can use a High Low adapter to get you in range. Ideally, you'd be as close to level as possible, but as long as you're within 3 inches one way or the other, you should be fine. If you need a high-low adapter I've linked our selection. The most popular is part # RM-076 from Roadmaster. I've also linked an article to help you determine how much rise...

  • Fit and Compatibility of Roadmaster 6 Inch Drop Receiver for Flat Towing a 2012 Jeep Liberty
    Yes, the Roadmaster # RM-076 will work for flat towing your 2012 Jeep Liberty. The curb weight of your Liberty is under 6K. If you have modified your vehicle or plan on towing it with a full load you will want to make sure that the curb weigh doesn't exceed the 6,000lbs towing weight, if it does then I would instead recommend the # RM-048-6. I have linked both products to this page for your convenience.

  • Recommendation for Increasing Ground Clearance with a Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
    The Roadmaster Adapter part # RM-076 has only been tested for flat towing situations so I cannot recommend you use it to give you additional ground clearance with your cargo carrier on your 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander. The best recommendation I could give you would be to get the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 and use the top opening to give you additional an additional 6 inches of rise. I attached a review video for you to check out also.

  • High/Low Adapter for a 2015 Toyota Corolla with 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
    We do have a few options for adapters for a 1-1/4 inch hitch but they can only be used in the rise position: # MT70355 (Class II only) # HT5R (Class I and II) Please note that the use of any adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Adapter To Raise Cargo Carrier For Ground Clearance
    We do have a hitch adapter that might work for you, but it does reduce the capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent when used. I recommend the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter, part # RM-076. This adapter has a 6 inch rise and is designed to work with 2 inch receivers. For an adapter with a 4 inch rise I recommend part # RM-048-4.

  • Ball Mount Needed with a 5 inch Rise for Use with a 2018 Volkswagen Atlas
    A high-low adapter like the Roadmaster Adapter # RM-076 that you referenced is designed for use with a flat towing setup, but I do have a solution for you to tow your trailer level with your 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. If the 10-1/2 inch measurement that you took of the hitch receiver on your Atlas is from the ground to the top of the inside of your 2 inch receiver, like the Curt # C13366, then you will need a ball mount that has at least a 5 inch rise as rise and drop measurements typically...

  • High Low Adapter Plus Bike Rack Solution When Needing 7 inch of Rise/Drop
    You'll need a 6 inch high low adapter like part # RM-076 to flat tow your Mini Cooper level. We don't have a dual hitch adapter with this much rise/drop so a bike rack that can attach to the shank of the high low adapter like the Swagman XCS part # S64664 would be a really great option for carrying two bikes when flat towing.

  • Recommended 6 Inch Rise Adapter For 2 Inch Hitch Receiver On 2016 Coachmen Leprechaun 319ds
    We don't have exacly what you are looking for, but the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 6" Rise/Drop - 6K GTW, 100 lbs TW # RM-076 may work for you. I went out to our warehouse and measured this product. It has 5-5/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the bottom of the angled brace. This will also give you another 1-1/2 inches of clearance on the rise of the angled portion.

  • Max Height Distance Allowed Between Base Plates on a 2012 Honda CR-V and Motorhome Receiver
    When towing a vehicle, like your 2012 Honda CR-V, you need to make sure that the tow bar isn't 3" higher or lower than the center of your motorhome receiver. If your tow bar won't be within this range naturally you can actually use a tow bar adapter like part # RM-076 which has a 6" rise/drop to keep your tow bar as level as possible. I have linked our selection of adapters as well as a helpful article that goes into more detail about how to choose the correct one for your application. For...

  • Can the 6 Rise/Drop Roadmaster High-Low Adapter be Used with the Swagman XTC4 Bike Rack
    If you were to fully load the Swagman XTC4 # S64665 with the max bike weight capacity of 35 lbs each then the weight of the bikes and the rack itself would be 199 lbs so technically this will work. With that being said, the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-076 will reduce the tongue weight rating of your trailer hitch so unless your trailer hitch is rated for at least 400 lbs tongue weight you will be overloading your trailer hitch. Also, placing your fully loaded bike rack further out...

  • High/Low Adapter with 6 Inch Rise to Flat Tow a 3,800 Pound Car Behind an RV
    The Blue Ox High/Low adapter # BX88241 has a few more components to it than the Roadmaster version, # RM-076, and a higher capacity so it is overbuilt. The Roadmaster # RM-076 will still work great for you. It is still rated higher than your toad (6,000 pounds) and provides the 6 inch rise that you need.

    When a flat-towed vehicle is different in height from the RV pulling it you can use a high/low hitch adapter like # RM-076 to allow the tow bar to remain level when connected at the RV and toad. Tow bars should never be more than 3-inches under or over level. The linked page displays all of the high/low adapters we offer which range in their drop dimension from 2- to 10-inches of drop. For reference, all base plate fits for your 2002 Cooper are shown on the other link. And a helpful...

  • Can Roadmaster High-Low Adapters be Used to Carry a Dirt Bike on a Toyota FJ Cruiser
    Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-076 that you purchased is only for use for flat towing a vehicle behind a motorhome primarily. Any accessories used would have to be under the 200 pound tongue weight capacity. Since the combined weight of your carrier and dirt bike is 300 pounds you would instead need to use adapter # RM-048-6. However, the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. If the tongue weight capacity of the Hitch on your...

    The product you selected, while seemingly being a match for your application will not work because it is made for applications with tongue weights of less than 100 pounds.

  • How To Transfer Weight Distribution System From a Truck To An SUV With Different Ground Clearances
    I do have the correct options for you but the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter part # RM-076 cannot be used with a weight distribution system. Since you have two vehicles with very different ground clearances you will just need to have two shanks, one for the truck with more drop and one for the SUV with less drop. The good news is that most weight distribution shanks are pretty universal so all I would need from you is the drop needed for each vehicle. This can be found by subtracting the distance...

  • Solution for Base Plate Tabs on Vehicle That Are 6 Inches Lower than Hitch Receiver on RV
    When hooking your vehicle up to the RV you want the tow bar to be in what is called the "Safe Zone", which is 3 inches above or below level (see attached image). With base plate tabs that are 6 inches below the hitch on your RV you will just want to add a high-low adapter to get the tow bar back into this zone. Because of the difference in height between RVs and standard passenger vehicles these adapters are needed more often than not. The Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-076 should...

    The rise, part # RM-076 will unfortunately lower your tongue weight too far and you won't be able to carry the wheelchair when installed. You're right in noting that the tongue weight of your hitch will be reduced by 50%, which would render the hitch incapable of holding the carrier and wheelchair. You can get a little creative though with the specific kind of attachment you're getting the rise from. A Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, part # D210 doesn't have the same reduction in tongue...

    The High-Low adapter # RM-076 was not designed to be used for that purpose. The adapter has a tongue weight capacity of only 100 lbs, and is designed for towing a vehicle that is resting on the ground behind another vehicle. The Curt Multi-Purpose Ball Mount, # D210 might possibly be an option. The ball mount would raise your bike rack by 4-3/4 inches. The unit is rated at 7500 lbs towing, 750 lbs tongue weight. The receiver portion has a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs.

    The high-low adapters are only for use with a motor home while towing another vehicle with a tow bar. They are not designed or intended for use while towing any trailer, cargo carrier, or bike rack. A safer option would be the Dual-purpose ball mount, part # D210, which will raise the hitch opening 4-3/4 inches. The Dual-purpose ball mount also has a ballmount below the receiver for towing and using an accessory at the same time. The unit has a 7500 lb towing and 750 lb tongue weight...

    Like you pointed out, you will need to level everything to flat tow your vehicle behind your RV. To provide this leveling, you often need a High-Low hitch adapter. For flat towing, you have a "safe zone" that ranges from 3 inches above level to 3 inches below level. To land in the 3 inch "sweet spot", you will need an adapter like the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter Item # RM-076.

A dual hitch adapter, like part # MT70070 might be a good alternative. This adapter provides about a 6 inch rise, or Curt offers the # D-192 that also might be a good choice. Keep in mind, using either of these adapters will reduce the tongue weight capacity (maximum amount of weight that can be suspended from hitch) by half. For instance, say you're wanting...
