I needed this to connect a cargo basket and or an ATV trailer to the truck with with a truck camper in the bed. The truck campers bumper extends 48 inches out from my truck. This was ideal. Its sturdy and does not bend or sway. Perfect for my application.

I purchased the hitch extension to accomendate our bike rack to go on the back of our truckcamper. I also purchased the bike rack and steps at all work perfectly together. The extension is very heavy duty and can be used for towing a boat. The only con was not the extension it was the packageing it beat itself up. I also added turnbuckles and safety chain and electrical extension.

I ordered this from etrailer and it was fast and simple. I got it within days. I think this will work well with my pickup camper and trailer combo. The only problem I had was that there was too much paint on it. So much so that it would not fit into my receiver. I am sure they are mass produced, but they should have someone put a micrometer on them once in awhile. I have a 2018 Ram 3500 with a 2 1/2 inch receiver. I tried a friends exact same extension and it slid in easily. Oh, well. I made it work anyways.

I've bought Reese products in the past with no problems but this time one of the pin holes wasn't drilled completely through. It kinda makes one worry about quality control. These hitch extenders carry a lot of weight and if the quality doesn't match the demand it can be very dangerous. This is not a cheap product so I expected higher quality. Also, the hitch hole cover was broken, not a big deal but the hitch was just thrown into a box with no packaging material and sent on its merry way. When the box arrived it was obvious the box had see some tough times in it's journey to it's new home. I know this is a heavy unit but it looked like everybody along the way hated it! I've ordered a number of items from etrailer and they have been quick, responsive to questions and priced well, so this isn't a bad mark on their efforts.

Not sure what other people are talking about but the holes all lined up perfectly and the 48” tube steel fit perfectly with very little movement. That can be remedied with a simple hitch clamp but I don’t think I need it. Very solid with some weight to it. Adding the wire extension the holes also in perfect alignment. I chose to order direct from the website, I feel I will get the best product and customer service. Expensive but much needed to haul my trailer with truck camper. Always great stuff from etrailer.

Extension is very heavily built. Had a little trouble getting it in the hitch on my 2019 F-350. Hoping it was due to new paint and the cold weather making the hitch slightly smaller.

Product was shipped promptly and in excellent condition. All of the information regarding this product was very helpful, especially the video. I was worried that I needed a heavy duty hitch system but after watching the informational video, I was sure this would work for my set up for towing.

I give this 5 stars for its robust design and functionality. It was not an easy install though. The 5/8" pin hole on my hitch did not line up very well with the pin hole on this hitch extension. In all fairness, it could have been my hitch, although other extenders I tried did line up...We use this to tow a 4000 lb jeep behind a truck camper with a 2016 Ram 3500 dually.

This hitch extension is still working great. We have used it to tow our jeep over 25,000 miles with no problems.

This is very heavy duty. When I installed it on my Ford F350 the end of the extension bar hit the spare tire when it went thru the receiver and the pin hole was about a 1/4 hole off. I had to trim the end about 1" to make it so it would clear the spare tire. Hitch extension was a bit loose in the receiver which is typical and expected. I bought a hitch clamp to take care of the play and everything works fine.


Comments
After a year the hitch extension is still working great. As I said before I added a hitch clamp as the extension was loose in receiver - without this the trailer would be bouncing up and down a lot. It is a solid piece of metal and weighs quite a bit. I am only pulling a drift boat so this hitch extension works great because the trailerboat weight is less than 800 lbs. There is a limit to tongue weight for this extension so be aware of this and know what your actual trailer weights are. Overall I am very happy.

very happy now. the first product i received would not fit my hitch. the flange on the extension was not perfectly aligned and my curt brand solid steel hitch would not enter at all. i have some hollow reese hitches (which are just a hair thinner) and they fit but it was misaligned just enough that the curt brand hitch would not go in. on top of that problem, the product was terribly damaged from shipping. i was upset and intended on cutting the bar to remove the flange until coincidentally etrailer customer service reached out to me unprompted. after i explained the problem, they very quickly provided a return label and shipped a new replacement product. the new extension works perfect and it was shipped without one scratch on it. very happy now.

Reese did a very good job designing the 48" hitch extension. It is more substantial than I expected and it's load capacities are probably understated with good reserve margin for safety. Etrailer's service was exellent in all respects inclusive of product description, ease of ordering, exellent pricing, even better shipping and responsiveness, and perhaps best of all outstanding follow-up. I will be a repeat customer and highly recomend this company as a goto company for all your trailer needs. They obviously care about providing first class service and products.

A good, sturdy hitch extension. Cuts easily to desired length with an angle grinder and a cut off wheel. I chose to add turnbuckles for additional stability.



- RP45018
by:

Well designed and HEAVY. Plate for electrical connector is a little too close to the hitch pin (which makes it difficult to get a 7-pin plug in). Otherwise, no complaints. Works as intended to tow my boat behind my truck camper.



- RP45018
by:

Excellent service from etrailer but a problem with the machining of the extension. Pin holes didn't line up correctly with holes in my hitch but a little attention from my Dremel tool remedied the problem. Maybe if I had a Reese hitch it would line up but working with factory Ram hitch. Overall seems to be a heavy duty extension that will do what I need it to do, fishing boat with slide in camper.



- RP45018
by:

Very heavy extension tube. Double wall. Should be plenty strong. etrailer slapped a label on the original Reese box which had no padding at all. Box arrived torn up with holes at each end. Paint was chipped on each end of tube bezel and plug were broken. Fortunately I didn't need those items anyway. Happy with product. Not happy with packaging.

  • Looking for a Hitch Extension for my Ram 3500 with In Bed Camper
    It looks like you're trying to get a good sized hitch extender for your 2018 Ram 3500. The Titan Hitch Box Extension for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches, 41" - 48" Long part # RP45018 is designed to fit any 2.5" x 2.5" hitch it then reduces the opening at the end to 2" x 2" for use with many different accessories.

  • How to Get More than 16 inches of Hitch Extension from 2019 Ford F-350 and Tow 7,000 lb Trailer
    The only way to get that much extension and still have capacity for a 7,000 lb trailer is to first install a Torklift SuperHitch on your 2019 Ford F-350 as the factory hitch option is not going to work. So for that you'd want the part # TLF1008-30. With that installed you could then use the 21 inch hitch extender part # TLE1521 which would give you the capacity and extension you are wanting. This really is only option for what you are looking to do that is both safe and is overall a clean...

Assuming you have a short bed 2014 Ram 3500 dually with a 6.7 Cummins and no running boards the frame tie downs you'd need are part numbers # TLD2131 and # TLD3109. If your truck is a different variation though let me know and I'll come up with a better solution.

  • Hitch Extension for 2-1/2 inch Hitch Reducer of Ford F-350
    The Reese hitch extender part # RP45018 would fit the 2-1/2 inch hitch sleeve you have in the 3 inch hitch of your Ford F-350. The shortest this one can go is 41 inches so you might instead want the # C45048 which is shorter at 34 inches. Cutting either of these does not negatively affect weight capacity but the # RP45018 at 41 inches is rated for 5,000 lbs trailer weight and the # C45048 at 34 inches is rated for 4,500 lbs.

    For a camper that extends 40 inches past the rear of the vehicle the Reese Titan Extender part # RP45018 that you referenced would be what you need. This fits 2-1/2 inch hitches like your truck has and has a 4k capacity when used in the longer 48 inch length or 5k when used in the 41 inch length. I wouldn't recommend adding the variable of a long ball mount with a shorter extension when the Titan makes the most sense and will work well.

The only thing you need for the extension is a properly sized hitch pin like # 74149. For lateral, back and forth movement of the extension, it is normal to see some play.

  • Why the Weight Carrying Rating is Higher on Longer Titan Hitch Extender # RP45018 than Short One
    I ran this by my contact at Reese. This is a little tricky but I can explain. If you look at the pictures I have included for each Titan Hitch Box Extension (# RP45018 and # RP45292) you will notice that the distance between the 2 hitch pin holes is different by 3 inches. On the longer extension the distance between the furthest out hole and the end of the receiver is longer which allows it to carry more weight at 41 inches. The 3 inch difference is the key factor.

    At the 48 inch length the Titan Hitch Box Extension # RP45018 would have a 400 pound tongue weight capacity. If you use this to carry a motorcycle I strongly recommend tying off the furthest ends of the carrier to the truck to limit the amount of vertical movement. The best solution would be to use a small trailer designed to carry 1 motorcycle. It is the safest option and puts much less stress on the hitch. We do not have any trailers like that but you can find a lot of options online.

Or when used with weight distribution it would be 750/600 pounds. Yes, they do factor in temporary shock for bumps, dips, and what have you when providing the ratings, just like with hitches. In other words the unit is not going to break from a spike in the tongue weight due to a bump or something else. If...
