Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy Hitch Extender with step for 2-inch hitches. It's available at 19-inches-long, part number ST12 and 23-inches-long, part number ST18. Extend your trailer hitch receiver opening to give you more clearance during turns. This 19-inch Brophy Hitch extender will work with ball mount, bike rack, cargo carrier or any other hitch mounted accessory. As you can see we've got it set up here with our ball mount and the step is going to come in handy for anything you might need to get out of the back of your truck. The extension's also going to help with any clearance issues that we may have with our jack. If your vehicle has a spare tire at the rear you can use the extender to bright 00:01:00 enough clearance for your bike rack or cargo carrier. The 19-inch-long one gives us a 14-inch extension and the 23-inch-long one gives us an 18-inch extension. Our step measures 17 inches wide by 6 and a half inches deep. It features a diamond shred pattern for good grip and has a 300 pound weight capacity.

It features the gross towing weight of 3500 pounds. When used with a weigh distribution it goes up to 7000 pounds. The tongue weight is 350 pounds and the tongue weight with weigh distribution is 700 pounds. Keep in mind when using the set extension it will reduce your hitcher's capacity by 1/3. The whole thing is made of the sturdy steel construction with the black powdered coat finish so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. Now when we got all the features I go ahead and show you how to get it installed. First thing I'll do it's go ahead and load the shank into our receiver tube and we'll line up our pinholes.

You will have to provide your own pins and clips. Let's start with our first one. Slide that through, put on a clip. Then we can take our ball on or any accessory we have. We'll line up our pinhole there.

Take our other pin and clip and if you need pins and clips you can picked them up right here, etrailer.com, part number PC3. Now you can just use your accessory as you normally would. That's going to complete our look at Brophy Hitch Extension with step for 2-inch hitches.

This Brophy Hitch Extender with Step worked GREAT! Allowed me to keep the tailgate on on truck down so I could load my ATV into the truck bed and still tow the trailer with stabilizer bars without banging into the trailer jack. 639021

We are using this extension on a truck with a 8 ft bed and popup truck camper. We are pulling two horses in a 12ft steel stock trailer. The step helps for getting into the camper. The only thing that I don't like is that it adds one more sloppy joint between the trailer, but I don't think I could have the truck camper and still pull the trailer without worrying about hitting the trailer without it. Other than that, it is very well built and solid. I would buy it again for sure. I have been happy with purchasing trailer products from etrailer and will do so in the future when the need arises. 519060

  • Step for the Back of a 2016 Ram 2500 Long Bed
    I may have a solution for you but Roadmaster dual receiver # RM-077-4 cannot be used for towing trailer and it only has a tongue weight capacity of 400 pounds so it is not a good option. Hitch extender with step # ST12 would be a good option. The only problem is that since it is an extension it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 33 percent. And it is rated for just 350 pounds tongue weight itself so it isn't a good option either. If you can tell me the year...

  • Bike Rack for a Camper on a 1982 Ford F-250
    You'll need to take a few measurements prior to purchasing a rack to ensure a good fit. First, you'll want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point away of either the tailgate or camper, whichever is further. Your bike rack will need to be able to clear this distance to be able to equip to the vehicle. Because you have a camper, I recommend picking an extender with a step that will be far enough away to use to get into the camper. This has the added...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Pickup Step Usable with Tailgate Down
    The HitchMate TruckStep Extendable, Hitch Mounted Step for 2" Hitches - 9" x 6" - 500 lbs # HE4045 is the only extendable step we carry that reaches that far. We do have hitch extenders that have the step for that same purpose like the Reese Hitch Extender with Step for 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers 18" # RP11006 or the Brophy Hitch Extender with Step - 2" Hitches - 19" Long - 6-1/2" x 17" Platform # ST12.
