Video Transcript for Roadmaster Hitch Adapters - Hitch Extender - RM-071-75 Review

Today, we'll be reviewing part number RN-071-75. This is the Roadmaster Trailer Hitch Receiver Extension. It's going to extend our trailer hitch receiver to seven and three quarters of an inch. This is designed for a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch. It's going to offer 6000 pound gross vehicle weight rating and a 100 pound maximum tongue weight. It's very important that you keep in mind that this extender is designed for tow bar use only.

It's not for use with any type of trailer. We'll go over couple different measurements. We have an overall length about twelve and a half inches, from the center of one pin hold to the other is seven and three quarters of an inch. The larger sleeve measures right at seven and a half inches. The part that size into the receiver tube measures at four and seven eight seven inch.

We're going to go ahead and load it up and show you how to install this. You take it and slide it into the receiver of your hitch and you want to be sure to line up your pin holes. We'll simply install our pin and clip. Now, a pin and clip is not included but it is available with part number PC3 and you can also use a hitch pin and lock. Just like that we're all loaded up and we're ready to make our connection.

That's going to complete today's review of part number RN-071-75, the Roadmaster Trailer Hitch Receiver Extension. .

We needed this product to extend our towbar to put a rock guard on. We are parked in an RV Park at the moment, backed up to another RV, pictures are not possible.

I purchased this product because I need that extra 7 1/2 inch clearance under my bumper. I drive a 2006 E350 van I changed the factory bumpers for a chrome step bumper and it made my Reese hitch sit in more than 3 inches so I wanted an extra so I moved my hitch with a good tow rating. So that's about it. 167799

Service from etrailer is tops. Product arrived quickly and well packaged. I used it to allow my winch hitch mount to clear my auto bumper and fit my class IV trailer hitch. I don't like using extensions for actual towing. This product fit my intended function. 95105

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Hitch Adapters

  • Anti-Rattle for a Bike Carrier and Hitch Extender on a 2012 Nissan Rogue
    We do have anti-rattle devise that you could use but you need to know that the use of a hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. The Class III hitches for your 2012 Nissan Rogue have tongue weight capacities of 300 to 350 pounds. The reduced capacity from using an extender, such as # HE06, would take that down to 150 to 175 pounds, depending on the hitch. This means the combined weight of your Swagman XTC4, # S64665 at 60 pounds, and...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender to Improve Turning Radius when Flat Towing
    Hitch extenders, like the Roadmaster Trailer Hitch Receiver Extension, # RM-071-75, which you referenced are designed for when you have problems clearing your vehicle's bumper or spare tire when you flat tow. For example if you hear your hitch accessories hit your car, you need a hitch extender. Yes, a hitch extender will help with the turning radius, so the longer the extension the more help you will get. However, your first consideration when choosing an extender should be choosing...

  • Can a Roadmaster Hitch Extender be Used with a Tow Defender to Flat Tow a Honda Pilot
    As long as the combined weight of the Tow Defender # RM-4700 and the tongue weight applied to the hitch from the tow bar when the vehicle is coupled is less than 100 pounds, then yes, you can use the extender # RM-071-75 with the Tow Defender. The Tow Defender weighs about 20 pounds. This means that the vertical weight applied from the vehicle at the point where the tow bar connects to the extender cannot be more than 80 pounds. I recommend an extender that is rated higher such as...

  • Does Hitch Extender Typically Affect Safety Chain and Trailer Wiring Length Needed
    Typically when using a hitch extender similar to the Roadmaster Hitch Extender part # RM-071-75 the added length doesn't affect safety chain and trailer wiring fit but if you have a setup where the chains and wiring are tight then this may be an issue. For most people they have enough slack that it's not a problem at all. This hitch extender isn't designed for towing a trailer with though. For a similar one that is rated for towing you'd want the part # HE06 which can tow up to 3,500...

  • Trailer Hitch Extender for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch and Bike Carrier
    I have never heard of a 3/4 inch trailer hitch receiver. Does the receiver opening actually measure 1-1/4 inches? If so we do have extensions that you can use, such as # hes6 which will give you an additional 6 inches. If it is a 3/4 inch receiver opening then we will not have an option But the use of a hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. So if the tongue weight capacity is 200 pounds it will be reduced to 100 pounds when using the extender....

  • Recommendation of a Hitch Extender for Motor Home to Flat Tow a Jeep Wrangler
    The Blue Ox hitch extender # BX88265 (10,000 pound towing capacity) and Roadmaster trailer hitch extension # RM-071-75 (6000 pound towing capacity) will be capable of flat-towing your Jeep Wrangler weighing 4300 pounds. Adding a hitch extension to flat-tow a vehicle will not decrease the rated towing capacity on the hitch extender. There isn't as much stress on the tongue. For traditional towing the towing capacity will reduce by 50 percent by adding a hitch extender. Also, these two...

  • Recommendation for Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device for Roadmaster Hitch Extender
    The Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender # RM-071-1075 comes with the threaded bolt and pin. This threaded hitch bolt does indeed reduce noise and movement inside the hitch receiver, providing a more secure and quiet connection. However, there is not a locking hitch pin available that is compatible with the threaded hitch pin hole on this extender. A thief would need to have the correct wrench to remove it. If you are looking to lock the extender to your hitch receiver, I instead...

  • Roadmaster Hitch Extension Availability for Roadmaster Flat Towing Setup
    That's going to depend on how much extension you'd need. From Roadmaster we have the part # RM-071 which is 11 inches or the part # RM-071-75 which is 7-3/4 inches long. If you needed something different let me know and I can see what we have that might work.

  • Platform Bike Rack Needing to Clear Spare Tire on Jeep Wrangler When Folded
    The Thule T2 Classic 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH9044 measures 4-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when folded. The Thule T2 Pro # TH9034XT or # TH9034XTS measures 5 inches to the same point. It is interesting that you have more trouble with the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22G because it measures 7 inches to that same point. My recommendation is to keep your current T2 Classic because you love it and simply use the Roadmaster Hitch Extender for Tow...

    For your B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 3" Drop, 3-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10047B a hitch extension like the Roadmaster Hitch Extender for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7-3/4" Extension # RM-071-75 will give you the extension needed to tow in the rise position but it will also take your hitch's tongue weight rating down by 50% (as you stated).
