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   (66 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.

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.



by:

The product is good the packaging for shipping needs improvement. The box came ripped in half and only the tape on the bottom of the box was holding the box together. The plastic cap for the one end was broken and unusable. The other end had a dent in the metal that had to be filled down to be able to insert it into the receiver. The bracket for the plug extension to mount into the hitch extension was bent together so it had to be bent back straight. This was to be able to insert the plug and line up the 4 holes to be able to mount the receiver plug to the extension.



by:

Have not had a chance to use the hitch extension as of yet but I am sure it will perform as designed. My disappointment is in the following areas: 1) The packaging was very thin and flimsy. Came torn to pieces and it is a miracle the part was not damaged more severely. 2) The harness bracket was bent and I had to bend it back into position 3) The company logo on the end of the hitch is supposed to be a cool chrome piece. It is shiny plastic and is the only thing that is not beefy on the part. I can’t wait for it to break off and just have black steel showing. Think the tool is what I will need and it is what was advertised, just disappointed in the things that were mentioned above.

I bought this to haul a trailer behind my truck with the truck camper in the bed. I had to cut it down a bit, but that was no problem - sawzall did the trick. My camper is the length of the bed with the tailgate down and I haul a 6,000lb enclosed trailer with gear.The truck is a 2020 GMC 2500 at4. This hitch has held up well. The only issue with the enclosed trailer is tight turns can hit. Hope this review helps someone.



by:

Solid built as are all Reese products, allows us to tow a trailer with our Lance 975 truck camper in the bed. The camper has an extended deck on it.



by:

Had to cut off about 1/2 inch as it hit my spare tire on the other side of my 2.5 in hitch receiver on my hd3500. Also you should recommend along with this product the appropriate 7 blade female adapter that fits into the 2 inch receiver side of the extender. I need a female side with or without pre-wiring that I can hook into item e99001. Now I can extend to my trailer 7 blade male plugin.



by:

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



by:

Haven't used it yet but looks like just what I need. Thanks Quinn for all your help !!



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.

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.



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.

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



by:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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



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:

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:

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:

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:

Just what the Dr. ordered.



by:

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



by:

Works well with our truck camper and bo at.

  • Can Reese Titan Hitch Extender Be Used with V-Nose Trailer
    I can't attach the picture you submitted as it looks like it's probably copyrighted but yes, the Reese Hitch Extender part # RP45292 will work great with the V-nose trailer you mentioned.

  • 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...

  • Reese Extension/Reducer # RP45292 Compatibility with Class V Factory Hitch on 2013 Ram 2500
    The Reese Titan Extension/Reducer you referenced, part # RP45292 would work great with the 2-1/2 inch Class V hitch on your Ram. As you mentioned, the extension has a 8K capacity when cut down to the 24 inch length, that will provide a 2 inch receiver on the other end you can attach a ball mount or weight distribution system to.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Hitch Extension 2012 Chevy Silverado 3500 With In Bed Camper Towing a Trailer
    You can use the Reese Hitch Box Extension and Reducer for Titan 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches, 24" - 34" Long # RP45292 but it can only be used at the 34" or 24" length. Drilling an additional hole for a hitch pin will void the warranty of the extension and also leave you with an unknown capacity. In order to be able to reach the 6,000 lb capacity you would need to use a weight distribution system because 34" would be the only option. You also need to be aware of your tongue weight. When used...

  • 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.

  • Hitch Extender for 2017 Ram 3500 with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    Since your 2017 Ram 3500 would have a 2-1/2 inch hitch installed on it the correct hitch extender to use would be the Reese part # RP45292 that you referenced which can be used at a 34 inch length.

  • Does Reese Hitch Extender Part # RP45292 Have Upward Bend in Tube
    The amount of "rise" that your Reese Hitch Extension part # RP45292 has is normal. If you were ever concerned about yours being bent or damaged check for creased metal or paint flaking. If either of those are present where it looks like it's bent that would be an indicator that it's damaged.

  • Does Reese Hitch Extender part # RP45292 Require Support Chains
    Unlike other hitch extenders you do not need to use any type of support chain with the Reese Titan Hitch Extender part # RP45292. This is true for the 24 inch length or the 34 inch length.

  • Availability of Extender for Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution Hitch
    Using the hitch extender 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. If you do not have a 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch you might be able to add one but I need to know your vehicle make, model and year. Please note, when using a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Hitch Extension for Towing a Boat on a Truck with an In-Bed Truck Camper
    There is a Titan hitch extender that should work for you, but would require a Titan hitch be installed on your truck to handle a tongue weight loaded that far from the hitch. It is Reese part # RP45292. You can use it as a 34 inch extension or cut it down to be a 24 inch extension. At the 24 inch length, you will have a towing capacity of 6,000 pounds with a tongue weight capacity of 600 pounds. If you need more capacity than that, you can use a weight distribution system and your capacities...

  • 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...

  • 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.

If the hitch opening on your 2004 Ford is a 2 inch opening, you will not be able to use this extension. The longest extender we offer for a 2 inch opening is the Hitch Extender For 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver 18 inches, part # HE18.

  • 24 Inch Long Hitch Extender for Chevy Silverado 2-1/2 Inch Hitch
    The Reese # RP45292 you'd looked at is exactly what you'd need. You'll need to cut the bar down to the 24 inch length, and you'd then install it in your 2-1/2 inch hitch to provide a 2 inch receiver for your cargo trailer. Once installed, the extender would have a 6000 lb towing/600 lb tongue weight capacity or 8000 lbs towing/800 lbs tongue weight capacity if used with weight distribution.

    Yes, because of its heavy-duty design the Reese Hitch Box Extension and Reducer # RP45292 can indeed be used with a weight distribution system. When used with a weight distribution system it features an 6,000 pound weight capacity when used at its stock 34 inch length or an 8,000 pound capacity if cut down to 24 inches. This extender is designed to be used with Titan 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receivers. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

    I have another option, but the Hitch Box Extension and Reducer for Titan 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches, 24" - 34" Long # RP45292 can only be used at the 34" or 24" length, as drilling an additional hole for a hitch pin will void the warranty of the extension. I recommend just using the extension at the 34" length which give you plenty of clearance since you are only needing 28", but you will need to make sure you are staying under the 4500lb trailer weight rating, or the 6000lb trailer weight...

    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.
