Video Transcript for Buyers Products Hitch Receiver Extension with Step Review

Randy: Hi guys, it's Randy here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the Buyers Hitch Extender with Step. Now these are available in both 12 and 18 inch lengths. So we can get our current pinhole backing around obstacles. In our Jeep, the spare tire tends to always interfere. But also in-bed campers can be an obstacle, trying to get up and into the back of those.

Or even just to get up and over the tailgates, they tend to be getting pretty high on newer trucks.Now we also see these used in the front of vehicles. If you have a front mount hitch, you can put them in there. It allows you to more easily access that engine bay, or get up so you can clean the windows. 'Cause you can see it's a nice, sturdy step. Little bit of movement, if we don't use an anti-rail device side-to-side, that's pretty common.

But it does a great job of allowing you to get extra access.Now here's just one example of the many ways a hitch extender can come in handy. With our Jeep, we can't get our pinholes lined up without interference of the spare tire. So as you can see here, with that extender installed, we're going to have full use of our bike rack, or whatever accessory that we're putting in the back there. It's going to move that pinhole either 12 or 18 inches further back from its current location.And we also have the benefit of the step there, so we can get up to that roof, or take care of any other job we might need to up on top. Now one thing to keep in mind when we use this hitch extender, is that it's going to reduce our hitch's capacity by one-third.

So we want to be sure to limit our ton weight, our trailer weight rating, or the weight or our carriers, to that two-thirds of our hitch's capacity.Now the step itself is going to be 17 inches by six and a quarter. And you can see it's going to have almost like a diamond plate texture to it there. Give us some good grip as we're stepping up on it. The entire extension and step has a nice heavy-duty black powder coat finish on it. Even from shipping and everything, I don't really see any marks or damage on it.

So that's a good thing.For both of our pinhole locations, the one that's going to go in our receiver tube, and the one that's going to hold our accessory, it's five-eighths of an inch in diameter. You want to choose any type Class Three pin and clip, or anti-rail device. This should all work out pretty well. We've got a two inch by two inch receiver tube opening. So that also means we'll only choose Class Three ball mounts, bike racks, or accessories.Now unlike some of the other extenders that are out there on the market, you can see the Buyers Extender, whether you're going with the 12 . is what we have here . or the 18, it's going to have the full, solid steel shank. That give us superior strength and durability.Now to install our extender, it's going to be just like any other Class Three accessory. We're going to slide that in, and we want to line up our pinhole with the pinhole that's in our receiver tube. We're going to secure that with a five-eighths diameter pin and clip. It's not included . if you don't have one, be sure to pick one up. And then you'll notice a little bit of play, and a little bit of movement. That's very common with items that are secured with just a pin and clip.So for towing duties, I don't think you'll have too much of a concern there. But if you're going to be using this with a bike rack or cargo carrier, think an anti-rail device would help you out quite a bit, and keep that thing from moving around.And here's a look at that movement that we experience without using anti-rail devices. Now when I compare this Buyers to a similar one, which is going to be the Reese Hitch Extension with Step. The Reese was a little bit tighter in there. It didn't have quite this much movement. But, in either case, those could both be completely eliminated using an anti-rattle device, that would just bolt around here.And that's going to complete our look at the Buyers Hitch Extender with Step.

As advertised - well made, including the finish work. I will add non-slip strips to the top for extra footing in wet weather. And etrailer was fast and professional as usual.

Good quality product, heavy duty, well built. Great service - I would buy from Etrailer again.


Ask the Experts about this Buyers Products Hitch Adapters

  • Does Hitch Extension Cut Towing Capacity or Just Tongue Weight Capacity
    The hitch extensions like the Buyers Products Hitch Adapters # 3371804015 technically cut the tongue weight capacity by 50 percent but since you won't find yourself able to tow a trailer at the hitch's normal capacity but at 50 percent of just the tongue weight capacity it effectively cuts all of the towing capacity then. As long as your trailer is under 50 percent of your hitch capacity this would work find to help load boat trailer.

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier Step for Truck Bed Camper Access
    We do not have a cargo carrier that has a step, but we do have hitch extenders with a step integrated to allow you to have both. I recommend using the Buyers Products 12" Hitch Receiver Extension with Step # 3371804015. You will want to note that using an adapter like this will reduce the tongue weight of your trailer hitch receiver will be reduced by 50% which means your cargo carrier max will be reduced.

  • Recommended 12 Inch Hitch Extension with Step for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The closest option we have available to what you're needing is the Buyers Products 12" Hitch Receiver Extension # 3371804015. This 12 inch long hitch extender features a weld-on step but is designed to be used with a 2 inch receiver opening. Because of this you will just need to add a reducer sleeve like the Reese # 58102 to your truck's hitch. We do not have a similar hitch extender/step available that is directly compatible with a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver. I have attached a few video...
