Hitch Box Extension and Reducer for Titan 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches, 24" - 34" Long - RP45292

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (53 Customer Reviews)


by:

I had to remove burrs from the inside of the tube, both at the holes drilled (for hitch pin) and the end where the ball hitch goes in. The welded boss on the end of the tube had burs left over from the cutoff operation. The ball hitch would only slide in a couple of inches prior to deburring it. Also the packaging was not very good, see pictures. No damage to the product but I am surprised it even stayed in the box during the trip here, it was completely loose in the box and tore it apart during transport.


Comments
You can use a metal file to remove small burrs. If you do be sure to touch up the area with a rust resistant paint.

Terrible customer service. I will never buy anything from your business. Cardid is the best.




by:

Delivered in a timely manner! Exactly as described! Great product! Super heavy Duty! Great web site! Very easy to use!




by:

Well made, high quality. I initially installed it without support chains and turnbuckles. Even in that configuration it was rock solid. I've since installed the turnbuckles as seen in the pictures (I got the turnbuckles from etrailer.com also). A small issue with the product - I had to cut approximately 1" off of the extension to use it "at full length" due to the positioning of the pin hole; the extension hit my spare tire. Not a big deal to cut it, which brings me to my second issue - in the video they say to cut it with a hacksaw. This thing is made from hard, thick steel and I would not recommend nor envy the person who has to cut it with a hacksaw; get a metal cut-off wheel for your angle grinder.




by:

I haven't had the chance to use this Extension on my truck yet, but it looks like it is going to work great!! etrailer went above my expectations and supplied a part the was broken during shipment. Extremely pleased with etrailer, they also meet my expectations and then some!




by:

The tube has to be shortened 1" to fit stock 2021 F250 receiver hitch otherwise end hits full size spare tire.




by:

Good value. Strong and just what I needed. Required cutting an inch off the butt for it to seat deep enough in my RAM 3500 factory receiver. Also required grinding out the corners of the receptacle to insert hitches. Not perfect but I'd buy it again.




by:

I'm very happy with the hitch extension bar, the product arrived on time in excellent condition and there were no complications with the seller. I did decide to add support chains at 45 degrees going back to the hitch because I was uncomfortable with the lateral movement. That decision added about $50 to my final installation cost but now I am very comfortable with the set up.


Comments
I have only had one opportunity to use the hitch extender but I have no regrets purchasing it. I am certain it will come in handy sometimes.

Looks like it will do exactly what I need it to




by:

A great heavy duty extension just what I needed for the pickup when the camper is on. The service at eTrailer was great. There was a slight mix up in the billing versus shipping information. eTrailer called me got it taken care of and the product arrived with in a few days of the order.


Comments
After a year of use I am still satisfied with the heavy duty extension.

I bought this to extend the receiver on my F350SD 4x4 diesel SRW out to the bumper of my Alpenlite Camper. I like that it tapers to a 2x2 receiver at the trailer end, so I can use my 2x2 hitch bar to haul a light kayak trailer. It looks to be heavily constructed and should meet my needs since the largest trailer I will haul is a 5400#(fully loaded) Lance 1685 Travel trailer with a tongue weight of 500 pounds. I use an adjustable WD hitch with a only enough tension to level the trailer and smooth the ride.

"The extension did not fit a new Curt 2 1/2" receiver, both fresh out of the box. This is contrary to this comment "Yes, the Curt trailer hitch # C15809 will fit your 2011 Dodge Ram 3500. As far as the Titan extension, # RP45018 or # RP45292, I have tested these extensions in a Curt hitch with the 2-1/2 inch receiver and found that it will fit. I have included a link to the installation instructions for the trailer hitch."

The problem appears to be with the extension, not the Curt hitch, because a 2 1/2 to 2" reducer fits the Curt hitch in a typical fashion, easily inserted. I was able to fit it to the hitch by grinding off the paint and easing the corners a little.




by:

Fits fine now, but had some installation issues on my 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. Out of the box at full extension it fit my truck fine. Once I cut it down to the 24" length at the factory marking it was too long and interfered with the spare tire. I cut an additional 1/2" and it went in with clearance for the tire. Then I found the hole for the hitch pin was crooked. Too high on one side and low on the other. Half an hour with a Dremel and all was OK.

The bracket for the wiring is excellent.

I haven't towed with it yet but it appears solid and I expect it will do the job.




by:

Good fit...had to trim 1.5 inch's to allow for the spare tire on the Chevy 2500 HD. Only problem is the pin hole does not line up with the holes in the hitch....so will have to use a dremel tool to trim some metal away from the existing pin hole on the extension. One other comment, I wish the raise on the ball end of the extension was 4 inchs higher.... It is low to the ground, I am concerned I will have clearance problems with some driveways at gas stations, with the welded skid plate on the extension dragging....




by:

Been using this extension for about a year. Made several long trips pulling my boat which has a 730lbs tongue weight. I added side turn buckles to add side to side strength.




by:

I received and installed this hitch extension. The service from etrailer was very prompt and I am well pleased with their service. The fit to my Ford F350 was fine and the holes lined up to my receiver. It does however, butt right up against the spare tire through the receiver with no room for error. it could use a little more spacing but I am well pleased with the quality and finish.




by:

Part came double boxed and was shipped on the day I order it. I have a 2011 Chev 3500 HD, crew cab, short box and I had to cut off 1 1/2 inches from the back of the hitch, because it hit my spare tire. Might be a Chevy thing.




by:

I use this hitch extension to pull a 23 foot Center console boat behind my slide in truck camper. I have never had a problem with this hitch extension it is excellent.




by:

the home made extension that came with the 11.5 ft camper was to springy I used a 2 and 1/2 ft. 2"x2" extension between my receiver and the Titan extension this gave me the support I needed to haul my 16ft. boat behind my camper. the service and shiping was fast and great.




by:

Works great. I just need to add a few turnbuckles to help with the side to side movement a little bit




by:

I needed this hitch extension due to my truck camper overhang. We are hauling a u-haul cargo trailer. It shipped the same day I ordered it and arrived in perfect condition. I had to shorten the length to 24" and used Etrailer suggestions on how to cut the pipe. Thank you Etrailer.




by:

Just what the Dr. ordered.




by:

It works great the only thing is for a GM truck your have to cut off a half inch more to clear the spare other than that it works real well.

We use it a lot to haul the boat and jeep its great works well

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Extender be Used with Weight Distribution
    Using the hitch extension will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer by 50 percent. But if you have a 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver and use the Titan hitch extension # RP45292 the tongue weight capacity will not be reduced. At the 24 inch length the extension is rated for 8000 pounds when using weight distribution. If you do not have a 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch you might be able to add one but I need to know the year of your Chevy 2500. When using a weight distribution...

  • Weight Capacity of Titan Hitch Box Extension and Reducer for 2-1/2-Inch Trailer Hitches # RP45292
    The Draw-Tite Titan Hitch Box Extension and Reducer for 2-1/2-Inch Trailer Hitches # RP45292 is rated for 4500-lb trailers when used at its full length of 34-inches and 6000-lbs when cut down to 24-inches. Both of these ratings increase if weight distribution is employed. My contact at Draw-Tite advised that this item cannot be cut down below the 24-inch length. They do not currently offer a similar 2-1/2-inch to 2-inch reducer extension in the 12- to 14-inch length you require.

  • Why Do Hitch Extenders Reduce Hitch Capacity but Long Ball Mounts Do Not
    This is a great question that there isn't exactly a great answer for. Hitch extenders not only put the weight further away from the hitch which would increase the leverage on the hitch, but they also add movement to the assembly which will increase the impact of the tongue weight since there will be play between the hitch and hitch accessory. Think of how a jack hammer works to help visualize what I mean. I wish there was an exact figure as to how much the tongue weight gets reduced by...

  • 24 inch Hitch Extension Recommendation for Chevy Truck with 2-1/2 inch Trailer Hitch
    We have a perfect hitch extender for your setup. The Titan Hitch Extender part # RP45292 will fit your 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch and can be cut down to a 24 inch extension like you need as well. It has more capacity than you'd need for a 320 lb tongue weight trailer as well.

  • Weight Distribution Compatible Hitch Extension for 2011 Dodge Ram 3500
    The Reese Hitch Box Extension you mentioned, part # RP45292 can be cut down to 24 inches long. At that length, it would have a 8000 capacity when used with a weight distribution system. You'd need to use the extension with a Class V hitch with a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening.

  • Can Weight Distribution System Be Used with Hitch Extension and Camper
    You'd want to set the WD system up after putting in the slide in camper so that it takes into account the added tongue weight of the camper. If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch you can use an extension like the # RP45292. This size hitch is basically the only size available that can use an extension with a WD system.

  • Can Hitch Box Extension and Reducer Handle 5,300 Pound Trailer
    If I did the math right the combined weight of the trailer and the vehicle is 5,300 pounds. At the 24 inch length the Hitch Box Extension and Reducer for Titan 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches, 24" - 34" Long Item # RP45292 is rated for 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight (8,000 when using weight distribution) so it can handle the weight of the transporter with the 3,800 pound vehicle loaded! I have included a link to a video review of this extension for you.

  • 24 Inch Hitch Extender for Flat Towing Jeep Wrangler Behind Ford F350 w/ Truck Bed Camper
    It sounds like your Ford F350 has a 2-1/2 inch receiver. If that's the case, I'd recommend the Reese Titan Hitch Box Extension, part # RP45292. The extension will extend the receiver opening 34 inches rearward, but it's designed so that it can be cut down to 24 inches. The 2 inch receiver on the rearward end of the extension would work well with your Aventa tow bar. If the receiver height of the F350 isn't within +/- 3 inches of the base plate tab height of the Wrangler, you'll need to...

  • Trailer Hitch Extension Recommendation for a 2-1/2 inch Hitch Using Weight Distribution
    Since you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch and need an extension for a weight distribution setup on your trailer you would want the # RP45292 as it is designed for use in a 2-1/2 inch hitch and can be used with weight distribution systems. You would need to cut it down to 24 inches in length and then it would have enough capacity for use with a weight distribution system towing a 8k trailer.

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for 2-1/2 inch Hitch that Needs at least 18 inches
    The best solution we would be the Titan Hitch Box Extension # RP45292 which can be cut down to 24 inches in length. When used in the 24 inch length it has a 6,000 lb trailer weight capacity or 8,000 lbs if you use it with a weight distribution system.

  • Availability of a 34 inch Long Hitch Extender
    Sounds like you are looking for a pretty long hitch extender for the hitch you have on your truck. The closest we have to what you described is the Reese Titan hitch extender part # RP45292 that offers up to 34 inches of extension and fits a 2-1/2 inch Class V hitch.

  • Tongue Weight Capacity when Using Titan Trailer Hitch Extension RP45292 with Weight Distribution
    A weight distribution system is used to more evenly distribute the weight of the trailer to all axles of the trailer and tow vehicle. When using the extension, # RP45292, the tongue weight capacity is going to depend on the length the extension is cut to. If it is cut down to 24 inches, the tongue weight capacity 600 pounds. At the 34 inch length the capacity is 450 pounds. It does not sound like you have a weight distribution if you are using the extension and a ball mount and are connected...

  • Will the Amount of Titan Hitch Extender in Receiver Affect the Capacity on a 2012 Chevy Silverado
    Actually, since the maximum amount of the extension # RP45292 would be in the receiver based on the measurements you have provided, you will not see a drop of capacity on the extension. On a 2-1/2 inch receiver, it would be rare to see any drop of capacity even if using an extension because the 2-1/2 inchers are so robust.

  • Is Lateral Stabilization Required for the Titan Hitch Extension for 2-1/2 inch Hitches When Towing
    I spoke with my contact at Reese and as long as you are using the Titan Hitch Box Extension for 2-1/2 inch Trailer Hitches, item # RP45292, at the 24 inch extension length, there are no stabilization chains or cables required. Since your trailer is over 6,000 pounds you would not be within the capacity of the Titan Hitch Box Extension at the 34 inch extension, so you will be limited to the 24 inch extension. Reese does not make stabilization chains and does not recommend welding or grinding...

The longest extender we offer for a 2 inch opening is the Hitch Extender For 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver 18 inches, part # HE18.
