Video Transcript for Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Road Master Hitch Extender for 2 inch hitch receivers, available in 2 sizes. The 11 inch long version, it's part number RM-071 or part number RM-071-1075 for the 7.5 inch version. Here you'll see we've got our tight angle turned here with our Falcon 2 tow bar. Plenty of space here. That's going to be until our customer puts his basket back on the back of his coach here. He's got a basket that's about as wide as the back of the coach and it sticks out a couple of feet.

You can imagine if that basket we're hanging back here, we're going to have some interference issues when it comes to making these sharp corners. That extender, we're able to move this pin hole out 11 inches and it's going to give us that much more room for clearance. Now you'll see in that same turn situation we're going to have a lot more room here. Some items on the back like our customer's basket, maybe spare tire holders, maybe ladders or back racks that come down are going to have a lot more room for clearance. The extension offers a black powder coat finish and sturdy steel constructions so it should last a long time for us. Now, the measurements on the extender is going to be 11 inches from the center of the hitch pin holder to the center of hitch pin holder. It's really going to give us good clearance there.

It's going to slide right into the standard 2 inch by 2 inch receiver tube opening. We can simply slide in our pin and clip and we'll secure it there, holding it in place. This is going to maintain a 6,000 pound capacity. Our vehicle can up to 6,000 pounds and it offers us a 200 pound tongue weight rating. That's the maximum downward force we can put down here at the receiver tube opening. Not a very big deal in this situation because there's not a lot of tongue weight when it comes to flat towing a vehicle.

We can take our tow bar and slide that on in. Line up those pin holes and slide through a pin and clip. Now this isn't provided so you'll want to be sure to pick one up. Part number on our website there is PC3. That's going to complete our look at the Road Master Hitch Extender for 2 inch Hitch Receivers..

Very good quality and finish to product except for the install. Retainer bolt threaded into extension fine and pulls it towards the left side of the coach receiver, but there was a slight mismatch in the holes on the right side causing the threads on the bolt to round over. I'm not going to remove the extension and it is torqued in fine, but if I ever had to it would ruin the threads inside the extension. 475529

We recently purchased a Road Master Spare Tire Carrier for our motorhome and found that it was just a couple inches too close to the rear hatch to allow us to open it to check fluids. Fount this item online and searched for a good deal with speedy delivery. eTrailer came through for us. Installation was very easy just as long as you have the right size tools. The item itself is very well made and matches the rest of the Road Master products. If you are looking to extend a hitch, you need to make sure your extension is as strong as the main hitch, you do not want to reduce your load capacity by using an under-sized extension. I can recommend both eTrailer and Road Master for this product without reservations. 418863

I have a 60" x 20" x 20" cargo basket carrier that I'm intending on using on my Class B+ Motor Home. With the 2" hitch on the coach is slightly recessed, this makes the basket carrier is too close that I'm unable to open it up. This extender will be the fix. Impressed with the construction of this. The half that slides into existing 2" hitch is solid square stock (not tube steel)... Heavy Duty! Was also very pleased with etrailers customer service / shipping. They upgraded me from standard to 2 day priority. Thanks etrailer (and George D) 471924


Comments

George,Thank you for your review.Just a reminder that hitch extenders such as part #RM-071-1075 do cut your tongue weight capacity by 50. That is including the weight of the carrier itself. I have attached a link for information on extenders and adapters.

The product is exactly as advertised; high quality and well constructed. More importantly was etrailer's service. My order was lost during delivery by the delivery service and etrailer shipped a replacement right away. I have purchased from etrailer in the past and they always follow up and thank you for your business. That means a lot. Thank you etrailer for your good customer service. 561722

This receiver extension is perfect for my need. Recently purchased new E-Bikes and new bike rack. My installation excitement fell when the rack contacted the spare tire of our Jeep while raising to folded position and couldn't latch. Found the right size and placed the order. "George" responded quickly to say the order was shipping that day! Then it was delivered one full day earlier than promised. Extremely happy with the fit and quality and the Anti Rattle pin is great. Thank you, 477219


Comments

Thanks for the reply Mark C. I did want to let you know that using hitch extenders like this one will reduce the hitchs overall capacity by 50 percent. This is something to keep in mind especially considering your new e-bike. Please make sure that the hitch, bike rack and all other components are not exceeding the reduced tongue weight when using the hitch extender.

etrailer had just what I needed. I recently purchased a bike rack for our new electric bikes, but discovered that the handlebar on the "inner" bike hits the back side of our motorhome.

Pros: Works great for side-to-side stabilization. If you want more security the hole in the bolt is large enough to put a small lock thru. For up/down stabilization I added the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch and now all directions are very stable. Cons: Corner fillets in the receiver section are larger than other extenders or receivers so it may be a tighter fit than you are expecting. 600695

This is not my first order with you. I am always pleased by your service. My Hitch Extension was here in 3 days. My RV weighs 6000 lbs. I was concerned that it would be flimsy and crack under towing conditions. This extension is solid steel. when I felt the weight, it was very heavy., I checked to see if it was hollow, it was not. I feel confident that it can handle my RV and even more. the quality is excellent. Extremely Heavy Duty. Thank you and I am very happy with my order. 515836

The extender seems well built and should not have any problems pulling my trailer. I had two hitches to put in it. One did not fit because of the way it was designed. It had a slanted end that cause it to be a half inch to long to let the holes line up. The second one worked just perfectly. 359297

Excellent so far. The product arrived on time and well packaged. The extender will be used with a hitch carrier (purchased from etrailer) that was modified to carry a large lifetime patio box on the rear of a camper van. The extender will allow the rear doors to open for outside access. Thanks etrailer for the excellent service as always. Randy J 331328

Do you have a question about this Hitch Adapter?


  • Hitch Extender that is At Least 3-1/2 Inches Deep From Pin Hole to Inside Receiver Tube
  • The Roadmaster Htich Extender # RM-071-1075 measures approximately 3 inches deep from the pin hole to the furthest point inside the receiver tube. It's also only designed to be used to flat tow a vehicle with a hitch style tow bar. It can't be used with a ball mount. The Curt Hitch Extender # C45791 has the same measurement of 3 inches and can be used for towing a trailer; however, it has a much lower weight capacity at 3,500 pounds.

Just as a blanket statement, any hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight of your trailer hitch receiver even if it has a higher weight capacity, like the Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender # RM-071-1075 that you referenced. Both the Curt # C45791 and the Brophy # HE06 options will still cause some play by themselves because of the weight sitting further out from your trailer hitch pin hole. What...

  • The Replacement Stinger Bolt # RM-A004634 referenced in your question is designed to replace the stinger bolt that came with the Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender # RM-071-1075. This threadded hitch bolt does indeed reduce noise and movement inside the hitch receiver, providing a more secure and quiet connection. There is not a locking hitch pin available that is compatible with the threaded hitch pin hole on this extender. If you are looking to lock the extender to your hitch...

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender Recommendation for Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier
  • Since Roadmaster recommend you use the Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender # RM-071-1075 with the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # RM-195225 this would be a great option to extend it out that we know the manufacturers has determined is effective and safe. Since the carrier and the extender both come with anti-rattle/movement devices you wouldn't have to worry about sway like you mentioned either.

  • Hitch Extension Compatibility With Front Hitch on 2013 Ford F150 for Winch Mount Fit
  • For your Warn Zeon 10 Winch on your 2013 Ford F-150, the Curt front mounted receiver # C31068 has a vertical load of 500 lbs and a line pull ratting of 9,000 lbs. Because of the recessed receiver, I recommend the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Hitch Receivers - 8" Long # C45791 which reduces that vertical load limit by 50% and brings it to 250 lbs. I recommend using hitch lock # 7683 and getting the pins keyed alike by selecting that from the box on the product page.

This will give you all 3 of the hitch ball sizes and also give you the pintle hook option. For the mounting plate and shank to have the clearance for the spare tire and the rise you need, I recommend the B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate for 2" Hitches - 15" Shank - 14 Hole - 16,000 lbs # BWPMHD14005.

  • I have a solution for you, but the Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7-3/4" Extension, # RM-071-1075, is designed to be used in flat towing applications. When flat towing a vehicle behind an motorhome there is less tongue weight on the hitch than when you are towing a trailer. That's why the Roadmaster hitch extender has a low tongue weight rating and should not be used in trailer applications. I recommend using a ball mount with a longer shank, like...

For this, you are going to want to use a ball mount with an extended shank. We have a few options for this but will be dependent on the amount of rise/drop you need to keep the trailer level.
