Good quality hitch extender, however, ended up not using it because I just wasn’t comfortable with the weight distribution aspect. Ended up buying a Hensley Hitch for the camper. Will not hesitate to use it for my flatbed trailer pulling a lighter load though.

  • Is Trailer Weight Also Reduced with Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches
    Yes, the Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches part # GY89SR as with any hitch extender reduces both tongue weight and gross trailer weight by half. The weight capacity with this hitch extender is 500 lbs for tongue weight and 10,000 lbs for gross trailer weight unless the hitch is rated lower.

  • 14 inch Hitch Extender That Can be Used with Bike Rack for 2022 Land Rover Defender
    Using a hitch extender does cut the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle it is installed in by 50 percent. Since yours is rated for 350 lbs you'd be limited to 175 lb but we do have a 14 inch hitch extender with the Gen-Y part # GY89SR which would work well for you as long as the weight capacity factor worked out.

  • Comparing Gen-Y and Curt 14 Long Hitch Extenders For a 2 Receiver
    The Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender # GY89SR is far superior to the Curt Hitch Extender # C45795. The Gen-Y is made in the USA, comes with a lifetime warranty and as you pointed out has the higher 10,000lb trailer capacity with up to 500lbs of tongue weight. The Curt is only rated for 3,500lbs of trailer weight and 350lbs of tongue weight. It also only comes with a 1-year warranty. For weight the Gen-Y only weighs 16lbs while the Curt weighs 18lbs.

  • Gaining More Clearance For My Rear Doors When Using GearSpace 34 On My 2022 Ram 3500
    If you are using the GearSpace 34 Enclosed Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitch - Slide Out - 34 cu ft - 300 lbs - Dark Gray, part # HGK819, at its maximum length, you will need to add a hitch extender to your 2022 Ram 3500 in order to provide the necessary clearance to open the rear doors of your 2022 Ram 3500. Your truck has a maximum tongue weight between 1,349 lbs and 1,497 lbs. Introducing the hitch extender will reduce this tongue weight by 50%. I recommend the Gen-Y Hitch Extender For 2"...

  • Availability Of A 12" Long Hitch Extension Rated For 10,000 lbs Towing
    We do have a hitch extender that will work for your application. After looking thru the available options, it seems the Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches # GY89SR is going to be your best bet. This extension is 14" long from the center of hitch pin hole to center of hitch pin hole, it can be adjusted to 12" length as well. It is rated for 10,000 lbs so it will be plenty strong for this setup.

  • Hitch Extender of at Least 13 Inches For 2 Inch Hitch
    We can do that, and what you can do is just get a hitch extender, though keep in mind that an extender will reduce the capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. Assuming that's okay, we have a 14 inch extender you can use, and you'll also need a lock to secure it to your hitch: - Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # GY89SR - Hitch Receiver Lock # e98881

  • Recommended 2 Inch Hitch Extender w/ a 500 lbs Tongue Weight Capacity
    Yes, there is. It is the Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches item # GY89SR which is actually 14" long. This fits a 2" receiver, has a 500 lbs tongue weight, and a 10,000 lbs maximum towing capacity. This extender, like all others, reduces your hitches capacities by 50% so you will want to verify this still gives you enough ability to haul your trailer.

  • Highest-Rated 14 Inch Trailer Hitch Extender
    The highest-rated trailer hitch extender is from Gen-Y and is rated for 10,000 lbs towing/500 lbs tongue weight: - Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches # GY89SR Please note that all hitch extenders, including the # GY89SR, will reduce your hitch capacity by 50 percent, and you have to abide by whatever is lower - the 10k of the extender or 50 percent of your hitch capacity. You will also need a hitch lock to secure this extender to your hitch, the Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Hitch Extender Type Solution for Weight Distribution System
    I have a really great solution for you but none of the hitch extenders that fit a 2 inch hitch can be used with a weight distribution system. Instead you'd want to go with a much longer weight distribution shank. The longest 2" weight distribution shank for 1,400lbs of tongue weight is the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution shank # EQ90-02-4600 which measures 18". This would give you about the same additional length you would get with the hitch extender you mentioned.

  • Can a Hitch Extender Be Used With Ram 1500 Pulling a 5,500LB Winnebago Travel Trailer?
    I have a recommendation for you as there is not a hitch extender capable of supporting the weight of your Winnebago behind your Ram 1500. You may be able to use the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank # EQ90-02-4600 which is 6" longer than most weight distribution shanks. You only need to verify your Husky has a vertical hole spacing of 1-1/4" on center. Adapters like the Gen-Y # GY89SR require you to reduce your receiver capacity by 50%. This will most likely put you below the 5,500lb capacity...

  • How To Determine The Correct Hitch Extender For Towing A Boat Trailer With A Truck Bed Camper
    Adding a hitch extender to your setup does reduce the tongue weight and towing capacity by 50% so we would need to find an extender that's rated around the 10,000lb range to be safe. You'll also need to take into account the size of your Sierra's trailer hitch receiver opening and the length that you'll need to clear the truck bed camper. If you had a 2" receiver opening then something like the Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # GY89SR could be the solution...

  • Is There A 12" Hitch Extension I Can Use While Flat Towing?
    I do have a potential solution for you, but I do not have an extender that will measure exactly 12". At least nothing that will be rated for use while flat towing. I do have a 14" hitch extender from Gen-Y part # GY89SR. This is rated for 10,000 lbs towing and 500 lbs tongue weight. It is recommended to use an anti rattle device like part # e99007 when using an extension. This will help to reduce any additional play at the hitch. You will also need a second hitch pin like the # e98880. Please...

  • Does Gen-Y 14 Inch Hitch Extender Reduce Total Weight Capacity of Trailer Hitch
    So for your GMC Sierra 2500, I was unable to find exactly what the hitch itself was rated for; I'm seeing different numbers all over the place, but I can still answer your questions regarding a hitch extender. Any adapter/extender will reduce the entire capacity and all ratings of the hitch, including the Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # GY89SR. If you use the # GY89SR your capacities will be limited to whichever is lower - half of your hitch capacities or...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender for H2 Hummer With Rear Mounted Spare Tire
    You can use an extender with a B&W Tow & Stow like the # BWTS10048B but it will limit your towing capacity. The use of an extender will reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50%. You will be limited by the 50% hitch capacity or the capacity of the extender itself, whichever is lower. I recommend the Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches # GY89SR. This measures 14" long which should be enough to clear your tire and is on the high end for extender capacity with a maximum gross...

  • Recommended 7 Inch Hitch Extender for a 2 Inch Hitch
    Yes, we do but unless you're using a weight distribution system you'll have to go with the 14" Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches item # GY89SR. It is the only one with a capacity high enough to support a 7,000 lbs trailer. If you are using a weight distribution system then the 7" Hitch Extender For 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver item # HE06 would work great. Please note that every hitch extender on the market will reduce your hitches capacity by 50%. A better option would...

  • Solution for Hitch Extension With 1,000 Pound TW and 10,000 Pound GTW Capacity on 2000 F-350
    I have a possible solution, but none of the 14-16" extensions have a high enough capacity. The only thing that comes close is the Gen-Y # GY89SR which has a gross towing weight of 10,000 lbs, but the max tongue weight is only 500 lbs. This would also reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50% like many hitch extenders do. If you can handle it being slightly shorter, what you could use instead is the Brophy Ball Mount for 2" Hitch # BH20. This is 13-1/4" long and has the capacity you need....
