Delivery was fast. Arrived in well packed box. Installed product with no issues at all. Works great and as advertised. Will be towing a travel trailer and needed a connection for a bike rack. When all installed, have plenty of room for placing bikes on bike rack. Really like this product! 574176

Product arrived ahead of schedule due to upgraded shipping at no extra cost. Order was accurate and appears to be high-quality. Obviously, I won't know for sure until I take it out with a trailer a few times, but I am glad to find a product that can tow my car and carry my bike rack at the same time! 559573

This worked perfectly for me to haul my small pop up camper and my bike rack. It is very sturdy and easy to install and remove. I usually take it off at the campground so I can get my other supplies out of the back of my SUV without knocking my shins on it. 495003

great idea. top reciever is too low, itshould be higher so you can operate the lock on a trailer. also be aware that my trailer crank was in the way if you want to put bikes on the hitch. good quality. hope that it works for me 559252

Have you used it with your boat yet and if so, any problems with clearance when turning?

First, let me say that eTrailer is fast, easy, and well-priced. Just received this ball mount and tried it on my Tacoma pulling a Jayco Jay Feather 17C hybrid. Works like a charm. The only issue is that the bike tires MAY hit the dual propane tanks if I really jack knife, but I can probably strap the tires together to avoid it. 66031

Excellent Service. Shipping was upgraded at no extra charge and we received the hitch within a few days instead of over a week. Hitch works great with our bike rack. Brilliant design !! 387674

The product works as advertized. Note that you should look at the profile of the bumper above the receiver hitch to ensure that it will fit. It works fine on our Toyota Tacoma, but will not fit in our Volvo. It allows us to tow our Popup Camper and use a hitch mounted bicycle rack (North Shore). Price, customer service and delivery were excellent. A great company to deal with! 384754

Gives me the ability to pull the boat and take our bikes. The receiver is very loose in my Silverado's 2" receiver, had to buy a anti-wobble pin. I have many other ball mounts or attachments to go into my Silverado's receiver with no wobble at all. Curt could have made it closer to 2". 11473

I bought the Curt D210 Multipurpose Ball mount to raise the level of a Kuat platform bike rack with extender for 4 bikes from my Drawtite hitch on a 2007 Toyota Sienna. Service from eTrailer was superb, the mount is extremely well-built, and it fits my Sienna/hitch like a glove. We used the rack with 4 road bikes on two trips this week-end and it worked flawlessly; not even a minor scrape through many driveways and turn-ins. The system does move the rack back a few inches; 50.5" from the bumper, so we needed a red flag on the end (at least in MO). This is the only nit in an otherwise great product. 130019

This was just what I was looking for to raise my cargo carrier above the level of my car exhaust and will work for my bike rack as well (not at the same time). It will also allow more room to open the rear lift gate. Product appears to be of high quality but I haven't had a chance to use it yet. Shipping was fast. 213172

This ball hitch may work for some, but not for the application that I purchased it for. The accessory receiver is too low to the ball mount. You must first remove whatever you have mounted in it before you can open the trailer coupeler of whatever trailer you are towing. In my case I needed to tow a car dolly and have a bike rack in the accessory receiver. Too much hassle to remove bikes and rack before removing car from dolly. 221255

I originally thought this would work for a pop up camper and adding the bike rack. We have a Thule rack with a Jayco camper. It does not work at all for this set up. However, the product is excellant quality and delivery was prompt. I would recommend it for some other type of set up but not what I described above. I have to send it back. 218188


Comments

Does this not work due to the turning problem with the bikes coming in contact with the trailer or propane tank? I was thinking of getting this but not if that is the problem.

-- comment by: Tom - 09/01/2015

The effectiveness of the Curt Multi-Purpose ball mount # D210 used for both hitch mounted accessories is dependent on the configuration of the trailer, cargo on the trailer, and the hitch mounted accessories. Using this with a bike rack is always interesting and you have to account for the hitch location on the towing vehicle, the configuration of the bikes, and the trailer set up. It is very easy for turning radius to be effected by all of these things. We do have other options such as towing bike racks and trailer mounted bike racks that you might consider. I have provided links to both of these product categories for you to view and see what may work best for your specific application.

Great. Solid as a rock. Car hit the thing, and I think it took the bumper of the car off. no damage to the hitch or my vehicle, what so ever.

Thank you for your follow up, happy to hear you are pleased with your Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount. We do advise a thorough inspection of your hitch, attachment points to your vehicle, and the ball mount itself before using it for towing or accessories. If there is any indication of any damage to the components, welds, or attachment locations we strongly recommend replacing any damaged equipment..

This multi hitch receiver fits our needs great. We need to use it for hooking up our pop-camper and for our bike rack. With this receiver, we can now take our bikes with us and not have to mount the bikes on the camper. The delivery time was fast. We ordered this on a Sunday evening and we received it on Wednesday. The only thing that we would change is that if the top receiver was about an half inch or more higher, then we would have more than enough clearance for our camper locking part, but there is enough clearance to make this system work. 49394


Comments

how many bikes does your bike rack hold? and, have you noticed any problems with turning sharp corners and your bikes coming into contact with your tent trailer?

-- comment by: Stefan - 06/14/2013

I will send Chad an email about your question. If he has anything to add, it will appear below his original review so keep an eye there. Turning ability is going to vary greatly depending on trailer shape and size, as well as the bike rack used and the shape and size of the bikes themselves. Also remember, this ball mount has a tongue weight capacity of 750 pounds. That means the tongue weight of the trailer, the weight of the bike rack and the weight of the bikes has to be less than 750 pounds or the tongue weight capacity of the vehicles hitch, whichever is less. If you need to carry 4 bikes and have a pretty hefty camper, this may not be the best solution. You can always contact us and let us know what you need to accomplish and we can certainly help you find a solution.

I have 10' xterra and I ordered this so could tow my pop up and use a bike rack. it showed up looking just like the picture. I have a Yakima 4 bike rack and it fit fine. But the catch is I had to hook up the camper and the put the rack on. Then take the bike rack off to unhook the camper. It's trivial but it takes time. Also with your bike rack loaded with bikes watch your turns so your bikes don't hit stuff like your propane tank. Remove bike tires if necessary. Overall it's a sturdy hitch and I have no big complaints. 141881

I have been looking for a light up trailer hitch for a long time. So when I saw this one from etrailer I was very happy. I ordered it and it came in few days. I also purchased the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver so I could mount the light and still be able to tow with out switching them out. Both Product's are perfect for my needs. Your company is the best and I would definitely recommend Etrailer to others. Thanks for the great service! 137834

The added receiver is a good idea, but I cannot find a trailer that allows enough clearance to hold even a small child bike with my Thule vertex 4. The bike rack itself has only 1/2 inch clearance over the hitch to my pop-up camper. The clearance with a boat trailer is slightly more, but the added length of the rack will not allow room for bikes to be carried. Again, great theory, it just doesn't work in the real world. 98580

WOW! This piece of gear is built so solid that it is never a worry hooked up to my motorhome, towing a two wheel dolly with a Jetta Diesel Sportwagon and a 4 place bike rack in the upper reciever! The turn around time between order and delivery was very quick and I was kept aprised of shipping during the entire time. Thanks! 40591


Comments

It appears that other comments say that in order to remove the car dolly from the ball, you have to remove the bike carrier. This seems to make the whole thing not very good. You do not mention this problem. It appears from the comments, the problem relates to the lack of space between the two receivers

I purchased this ball mount to add a canoe carrier to my truck/travel trailer rig. It arrived in good shape, however, the box looked like it had a tortured trip. Initially, the holes on the receiver section did not match up exactly with my canoe carrier. The pin made two trips in and out with the assistance of a hammer-problem went away. I believe the issue was the thickness of the paint in the holes on the receiver section. If you want to add this capability to your tow/trailer rig, this product is simply and a good purchase. 61499

This product would have been perfect if the manufacturer made the upper accessory hitch higher from the lower ball. As it is, if you have an accessory mounted, you have to remove it to be able to unhitch the trailer since you cannot open the lock. Makes for a very awkward trailer and accessory combo. If you think you can keep your bike rack attached, drop off the trailer and go biking.....think again. You must remove bikes, remove bike rack, disconnect trailer and reinstall bike rack and bikes. Really????? Either the drop for the ball should have been a bigger drop or upper hitch higher. 95968

I installed one of your Draw Tite trailer hitchs on my 2014 Ford Edge. However my carrier would not fold up without hitting my car. I just ordered a Draw Tite hitch for my wife's MKX and stumbled on this accessory which solved the problem. Hell to get old! 539774

Great product, but did not fit on my 2014 Traverse. The top receiver would rub on my fiberglass bumper of the Traverse and therefore only half the pin hole would line up with the receiver. Plus my 4 bike rack would not fit between car and pop up camper then. 395182

I have never seen a hitch like this one, that I found on etrailer.com. I saw this hitch, and knew it would be perfect for my side by side, and it is. I can hook up to a small trailer, and then unhook, and slide in a feeder in the top receiver, and feed the roads of our hunting lease. This thing is perfect!! 522242

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • How do I use a Bike Rack and Pull a Trailer at the same time
  • We carry a very handy 2 inch ball mount for this exact application. The part is # D210. The ball mount slides and pins into your hitch and the top receiver will accept 2 inch bike racks and hold them above the ball. The Ball Mount has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity, which means that the bike rack and the bikes on it as well as the trailer tongue weight cannot weigh more than 500 lbs or the tongue weight capacity of the hitch, whichever is lower. We also have a bike rack that clamps...

  • High Capacity Dual Hitch Receiver With Capacity Greater Than 5,000lbs
  • Roadmaster offers a Dual Hitch Receiver, part # RM-077-4 that has a 10,000 lb towing capacity. However, the Receiver is meant for flat towing a vehicle and carrying a hitch mounted accessory, not for towing a trailer. The top receiver has a 400 lb tongue weight capacity, which means that only 400 lbs of downward force can safely be applied to the Dual Hitch Receiver. If you're wanting to tow a trailer and carry a hitch mounted accessory at the same time, I'd recommend using the # D210...

  • Choosing Bike Rack to be Used While Towing a Camper
  • The Dual Hitch Receivers such as part # RM-077-2 cannot be used for towing a trailer. These receivers are meant for use with a towbar carrying a rolling load and an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. 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...

  • One option would be to use a dual receiver like the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, part # D210. This will allow you to mount a bike rack to the top receiver while towing a trailer. The total tongue weight capacity of part # D210 is 750 lbs and the receiver portion is rated to carry 350 lbs. You will want to make sure not to exceed the towing and tongue weight capacity of your hitch and your vehicle as stated in the vehicle owners manual.

The # D210 is compatible with and an existing 2 inch hitch and provides a 2 inch receiver for accessory use.

  • How Can I Tow a Camper and Use a Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Together at the Same Time

With this, you should be able to use any 2 inch hitch mounted bike rack. You must take extra caution though and keep a careful eye on the tongue weight of the trailer and the combined weight of the rack and bikes as these 3 things make up the total tongue weight exerted...

  • Availability of Dual Hitch Adapter To Use a Tow Dolly and a Bike Rack on the Back of a Motor Home
  • The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, part # RM-077-4, can only be used with a tow bar and bike racks. It is not designed to support the tongue weight of a trailer (or tow dolly). This adapter can be only be used with a rolling load, like when flat towing a vehicle, because there is hardly any tongue weight that is put on the adapter when towing a vehicle with 4 wheels on the ground. A tow dolly will normally have a coupler on the trailer tongue that will attach to a hitch ball...

  • On any vehicle that has exhaust that exits straight out the back and not out the side or towards the ground could potentially damage a trailer hitch mounted item and its contents. I believe I have a great solution for you though. To get enough distance from the exhaust you can use multipurpose ball mount # D210 and that will get you plenty far from the exhaust. For a carrier, if using the multipurpose ball mount, you can use any carrier that fits a 2 inch receiver. The receiver portion...

  • Can a High-Low Trailer Hitch Adapter # RM-048-8 be Used To Raise up a Cargo Carrier
  • The Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter, # RM-048-8, is only designed for tow bar applications. I do have another, more cost effective solution. You could use the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210. Though it is designed to tow while carrying a cargo carrier or bike rack, you can use it to just carry a cargo carrier. The rise on the receiver is not as high as the High-Low adapter, but the receiver portion has a 350 lb tongue weight.

  • Can A Cargo Carrier Be used as a Hitch Extension for Towing a Boat
  • A cargo carrier like the Pro Series # 63153 you mentioned cannot be used as a hitch extender, primarily because the extended length would place too much leverage upon the receiver hitch and its mounting points. This excessive leverage would most likely damage the receiver and could cause the hitch to become detached from the vehicle. I would recommend using a Multi-Purpose Ball Mount like the Curt # D210. The ball mount is rated at 7500 lb towing, 750 lb tongue weight, and the receiver...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Scrape the Ground when Going Up Inclines with 2006 Honda Odyssey
  • Roller # RM-050 is a good option for a Class III trailer hitch on your 2006 Honda Odyssey. It does hang down lower than the hitch receiver so it will actually make contact with the ground sooner than if the roller were not on it. This roller will not help with the Kuat bike rack though. What might work better is to use # D210 and put the bike rack in the upper receiver. This will raise it up higher and keep it from scraping on the ground, even if the hitch does scrape.

  • Pulling a Pop-Up Camper and Using a 4-Bike Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Behind a 1999 Dodge Caravan
  • Depending on the size of the bikes and how many you intend to carry, turn clearance may become an issue, especially if the tongue of the trailer is relatively short. There is another method to tow and use a bike carrier that will provide some more clearance and reduce the chance of the trailer hitting your bikes. You could use Curt Multi-Purpose Ball Mount, part # D210. This will set the bike rack up another 4-3/4 inches, plus you can use a standard hitch mounted bike rack that you...

  • Carrying a Scooter and Carrier While Towing a Trailer Behind an RV
  • The first thing to check is to make sure the scooter carrier you have is rated for use at the back of an RV. Due to the distance from the rear axle to the back of an RV (which is longer than on a passenger vehicle) there is considerably more bouncing (like being at the back of a school bus). This additional stress creates a lot of stress on the hitch and the carrier. If the carrier is rated for use at the back of an RV then what might work for you is the multipurpose ball mount, # D210....

  • Can you Attach a Ball Mount to the End of a Cargo Carrier to Tow a Boat Trailer
  • I do have an option that will allow you to carry a cargo carrier and tow your 2,500 lb boat, however, a ball mount cannot attach to the end of a cargo carrier to tow a trailer. Instead, check out the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210. This ball mount will allow you to tow your trailer with the lower ball mount and carry your cargo carrier using the receiver. The towing capacity of this ball mount is 7,500 lbs and the tongue weight capacity is 750 lbs. The receiver weight capacity...

  • Recommended Roof Rack Options for Carrying a Canoe on Roof of 2014 Ford F150 w/ Camper Shell
  • I have two alternatives. One would involve installing tracks and crossbars on your truck camper shell. You'd start by installing Thule Top Tracks, part # THTB60. You'd also need the feet # TH460, the fit kit, part # THKIT3101 and crossbars, part # THLB50. Installing this kit would involve drilling into your camper shell to install the roof tracks. Another option would use a Hitch Mounted Load Bar, part # TH997, a single square load bar # 853-0182-14, the foot for the crossbar, part #...

  • Solutions for Towing Pop-Up and Carrying Bikes Simultaneously
  • Using a ball mount in the Curt Dual Receiver Adapter will place quite a bit of downward leverage on your receiver. You will then have three connection points between the receiver and the trailer coupler, which will add a considerable amount of bouncing, which is why I would not recommend using it for this purpose. A much better option would be the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, part # D210. The ball mount can handle 750 lbs of tongue weight, with the receiver portion having a capacity...

  • Recommendation for Carrying Bikes and Towing a Boat at the Same Time with a 2012 Chevy Traverse
  • I do not recommend using an extender because doing so will cut the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. A longer dual purpose ball mount is not available. What I recommend is a different type of bike rack. You could use a towing bike rack like # HR135 and a super extra long ball mount # 80232. With this set up, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rack should measure 7-7/8 inches, which should clear the back of your 2012 Chevy Traverse.

  • Availability of a Dual hitch Receiver to Carry a Hitch Mount Bike Rack and Tow a Trailer
  • There are actually adapters made that offer 2 receivers so you will not have to weld a bike rack to the top of the receiver. We have numerous options like the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, # RM-077-2. Or, you could use Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210, which has a receiver on top and ball mount on the bottom. When using one of the above products remember that the top receiver cannot be used for towing and that the tongue weight includes the combined weight of everything...

  • How to Tow a Boat Trailer and Carry a Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
  • I have a solution that would work for you and allow you to use both the Curt # D210 and the Thule Bike Rack part # TH956, but most likely your jack is going to interfere with bikes on the rack. It sounds like your jack does not swivel at all. What I would recommend you do is replace your trailer jack with one that does swivel like part # FTJ12000101 so that when not in use the jack can be folded down and out of the way so that your bikes can fit on the rack.

  • How to Determine the Right Rise/Drop Ball Mount Needed
  • In order to select the correct amount of rise or drop you would need you will need to take a couple measurements. The goal is to have your trailer sit as level as possible. The first thing you will need to do is park your tow vehicle on level ground and measure from the ground to the top of the hitch opening on your hitch. See picture Next, you will want to have your trailer on level ground and have it sitting as level as possible to the ground and measure from the ground to the bottom...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier with High Ground Clearance
  • The Surco 24 by 60 Cargo Carrier, part # 52018 has a straight shank, which means that the height at the back end would be the same at the height of the receiver. For the Toyota Venza, once a hitch is installed, the top of the receiver would fall just below the bottom of the rear fascia. Depending on the height from the ground to the bottom of a hitch receiver on your vehicle, this might present a problem. If you are concerned about ground clearance, you could use the Pro Series 24 by...

  • Recommendation for Carrying a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier on a Truck or Trailer
  • I have a solution for you that you may find better than putting a hitch on the back of the trailer. Take a look at CURT Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210. With this ball mount, you would be able to tow the trailer with the ball mount portion and carrier a cargo carrier on the top receiver portion, provided that the combined tongue weight of the trailer, cargo carrier, and generator does not exceed 750 pounds, and the total weight placed in the ball mount receiver does not exceed 350 lbs.
