Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bars RM-077-2 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number RM-077-2. This is the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, providing a 2" drop or 2" rise measuring from the center of the shank to the center of the pin holes here on the receiver tube. It's actually going to give us 2-1/4" going up and 2-1/4" going down. That's going to be our drop or rise. It is designed for a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. It's a really simple installation. I'm going to go ahead and show you how it installs inside of our hitch.

All you got to do is take the shank and slide it into the receiver tube and push it in until your pin holes line up with one another. Then you'll need to install a 5/8" pin or clip, or pin and clip, or a hitch pin and lock. Those are going to be sold separately and you can find those right here at etrailer.com. It's going to offer a capacity of 10,000 pounds with a maximum tongue weight of 400 pounds. This is going to allow you to double your capacity while using a tow bar. You can add a bike rack or a cargo carrier with a dual hitch receiver.

All the pin holes are going to measure 5/8". The measurement that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the pin holes on the receiver tubes that's going to give us a measurement of 9-1/8". The distance that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of our shank is going to give us a measurement of right at 2". This is made from a steel construction. It has a really nice finish on it so it is going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. The shank of the unit is a solid piece so it's not hollow on the back, it's a nice solid steel. Taking a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the receiver tubes is going to give us a measurement of 5-5/8".

The distance that we have between the receiver tubes here at the front is going to give us a measurement of 1-1/2". The overall length measuring from edge to edge is going to give us a measurement of 13-3/4". Again it does offer the drop and rise that is going to be measured from the center of the shank to the center of the pin holes on the receiver tube. When we did that measurement we can up with 2-1/4". That's going to do it for today's review of part number RM-077-2. This is the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter. .

Item promptly shipped and delivered! Still waiting for my new RV to get delivered to try it out. I have bought many products from eTrailer and have always been happy with their products, prices and service! 166715



- RM-077-2
by:

The product was well built, the receiver end was solid so the Anti-Rattle lock would not have worked as it requires hollow receiver. This is a 10,000 pound rated product. I intended to use to add my existing bike rack and Tow bar together, but the bike rack prevented the Tow bar from being added and so I had to send it back and get a different bike rack that fit on my Tow bar. I did keep one of the locks and added to my Alpha Tow bar for Anti-Rattle and Locking. 80820

The hitch adapter is well constructed... and we're testing it out this weekend. I may want to change to an adapter with a 4" drop... The 2" drop lets the bicycle carrier interfere with the Blue Ox tow bar... I'm thinking that using the 4" drop, and turning it upside down so that the bike carrier rides higher would give more space for the Blue Ox tow bar... Not your fault, will I be able to exchange the 2" drop adapter for a 4" drop adapter? 200668

Perfect for my needs. I use the top hitch for a bike rack and the bottom for pulling my toad. I did need to get longer cables for my particular tow bar. You may not need to with yours. For now, I leave the receiver on the RV with the bike rack attached so I am ready to go should I need to pull my toad. I have so far driven over 3000 miles with out a problem. 717055

  • Trailer Hitch Adapter to Carry Bike Rack for Electric Bikes and Flat Tow Behind Motorhome
  • To use a bike rack while you flat tow a vehicle behind your motorhome all you will need is a dual hitch adapter. There are three of these that could work depending on the rise or drop you need. All of these have a towing capacity of 10,000 lbs and tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs. - Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 2-1/4" Drop/Rise # RM-077-2 - Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 4" Drop/Rise # RM-077-4 - Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 6" Drop/Rise # RM-077-6 -...

  • How To Carry Bikes While Flat-Towing a Chevy Sonic Sedan
  • Yes, I do have an option for you to carry bikes with your flat-tow setup. However, since there is not a trailer hitch for your vehicle yet and you don't want to use a trunk mount or roof rack bike rack then you will have no other option but to use a dual hitch adapter and place the bikes on a hitch mounted back rack between the tow vehicle and toad. For this, we have a few options for you depending on your rise/drop needs. In order to determine what your rise/drop needs are we will...

  • The Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 is absolutely going to be the best option to carry your two e-bikes on the back of your 2018 Tiffin Allegro 34PA, and it can also be used with your Cherokee, but NOT when the Cherokee is being flat towed. The EasyFold XT has a weight capacity of 65 lbs per bike which will accommodate your needs, and the fenders will not be an issue because the EasyFold uses ratcheting straps to secure the wheels and has independent arms that...

However, the further out you go, the less tongue weight the ball mount or extension will be able to carry which is not really an issue for a flat-towing setup but is something you need to keep in mind.

  • Carrying Bikes While Also Flat Towing a Vehicle Behind a Motorhome
  • I do have a solution for you but the RV bumper rack # S80605 would interfere with flat towing a vehicle (especially when turning). You will need to use a dual receiver, # RM-077-2, to be able to both flat tow the Jeep Liberty and carry a hitch mount bike rack. You could then use a bike rack such as # C18029 for a hanging rack or # B01311 for a wheel mount and be good to go! I have linked videos of both bike racks for you.

If you don't already have a tow bar and safety cables then I highly recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 which comes with safety cables rated for 6,500 lbs. For a supplemental braking system the Air Force One # SM99243 is the best for you since your 2013 Tiffin Phaeton has air brakes. You will also need to use the Relay # RM-88400 unless you plan...

  • Dual Hitch Adapter for Flat Towing and Bike Rack
  • There is a dual hitch receiver adapter that will work for what you are looking to do but there is not one with a 3/4 inch drop to make the lower receiver the same level as the height on your motorhome's hitch like you were wanting. That's okay because you only need to be within three inches from level to safely tow, and the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter for Tow Bars - 2-1/4" Rise/Drop # RM-077-2 will have you 1-1/2 inches below level, which is well within the safe zone (see...

  • Dual Receiver Adapter for Use with Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar BX7365 and Hitch Bike Rack
  • Any tow bar, such as the excellent Blue Ox Alpha # BX7365, used to flat tow a vehicle like your (very cool!) 1995 Wrangler should be level or nearly so in order to operate best. Tow bars can be up to 3-inches higher or lower than dead-level on either end, strictly speaking, but they all will work better (less binding of the telescoping arms) when they are level. We offer high-low hitch adapters like # RM-076 and # BX88132, shown on the linked page and reviewed in detail in the linked...

You can flat tow your vehicle with the bottom receiver and then use the top receiver for a bike rack. The top receiver for each product is rated at 400 lbs Tongue Weight (TW) so you need to be under that capacity for your bikes. Be sure to stay within the 3" safe zone (see attached picture)...

An RV mounted tow bar will have the shank to fit into one of the 2 inch by 2 inch openings of part # RM-077-2. If your Blue Ox tow bar is a vehicle mounted tow bar, then part # RM-077-2 will not work, as it will have a ball mount coupler on the end of the tow bar. As long as your Blue Ox tow bar is an RV mounted tow bar, as it would disconnect from the...

This is a Class I hitch so it can only handle 2 bikes maximum and the bike rack has to be rated for use with a Class I hitch. Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) per their warranty requirements.

We offer a Curt Ball Mount with 2 inch Receiver, part # D210, which should work for your needs. This ball mount has a tongue weight capacity of 750 lbs, so the trailers tongue weight and the weight of the bike carrier plus the weight of the bikes cannot exceed that figure. Another...

You could also use one of the Roadmaster versions, part # RM-077-4 or RM-077-2. These parts are only to be used with a rolling load such as a vehicle being towed with a tow bar and should never be used to tow a trailer.

You could use the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, item # S64663, which would be a good choice, or any of the bike racks we have rated for use behind a RV that will fit in a 2 inch hitch, see link.

However, the Swagman XC 2-Bike Platform Style Rack # S64650 cannot be used on the rear of your RV. Bike racks that are to be used on motorhomes and RVs must be built specially to withstand the vertical and lateral forces found at the rear of such vehicles. In the same way that a seat...

You may be able to use a towing bike rack, like # HR135, depending on how many bikes you wish to carry. I have included a link to our towing bike tracks for you to view. Please note that the weight of the rack plus the weight of the bikes will count against the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. Another option is to...

Out of the available bike racks I recommend the Swagman Dispatch # S64684 because it will be a great fit in the 2 inch receiver in # RM-077-2. I have linked a video and instructions for the bike rack for you.

  • Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver # RM-077-2 is designed to have the top receiver hold a cargo carrier or bike rack and the bottom receiver for tow bar use only. We do have other dual receivers that are not restricted to tow bars though. We have Curt dual receiver # D-192 rated for a maximum of 350 pounds tongue weight and 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight. We also have # MT70070 rated for 400 pounds tongue weight and 4,000 pounds gross trailer weight. And we have # MPG544 also rated for...

  • Does Using Roadmaster Dual Receiver Reduce Trailer Hitch Tongue Weight Capacity when Flat Towing
  • In a flat towing situation the use of an adapter like # RM-077-2 does NOT reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch because there is very little tongue weight on it when flat towing a vehicle. So you can use this adapter to flat tow your Jeep and to carry a bike rack. In a regular towing situation like towing a trailer and not a vehicle, the use of an adapter or extender reduces the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. This is because the additional length...

  • Can a Dual Hitch Receiver Be Used to Carry a Bike Rack and a Cargo Carrier
  • Dual hitch receivers, like the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, # RM-077-2, are designed for flat towing a vehicle behind an RV and having the ability to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier in the top receiver. A cargo carrier and bike rack cannot be used together. For your situation I recommend using a roof mounted bike rack like the Swagman Rooftop Bike Rack, # S64720, which is one of our most popular roof mounted bike racks.

  • Solution to Use Thule Bike Rack While Flat Towing Jeep Wrangler
  • It is true that you should not use your Thule T2 Pro XTB 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH9034XT on your Jeep Wrangler when it is being flat towed. The reason is the amount of movement that far behind your motorhome results in the rack not being stable; this is also why this rack should not be used on the back of a trailer. What you can do instead is use a dual hitch receiver adapter which will allow you to both flat tow your Jeep and use your bike rack. The correct one will depend on the rise...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 GMC Acadia Behind an RV and Carry 4 Bikes and Kayaks
  • Weight carrying is the gross trailer weight capacity of the hitch. Weight distribution is a device used to better distribute the tongue weight from a trailer to all axles of the tow vehicle and trailer. It produces more stress in certain places on the trailer frame and tow vehicle. As such some vehicles/hitches are not rated for use with weight distribution. Dinghy towing means flat towing or towing a vehicle with all of its wheels on the ground. So basically your trailer hitch is rated...
