Tork Lift Cannon Extender

This Cannon hitch extender is specially designed to work with your 3" factory Ford Super Duty trailer hitch. Like most products from TorkLift, the primary purpose of this extender is to help create a towing setup that fits perfectly with your truck bed camper system. Not only will you be able to extend your trailer hitch receiver out far enough to clear the overhang of your camper, but you will also maintain a high enough weight capacity so that you can tow your trailer.


Heavy-Duty Towing with a Hitch Extension

Most hitch extensions dramatically reduce the towing capacity of your hitch setup, making it difficult to tow a loaded trailer over a certain weight. The Cannon, though, creates such a sturdy connection with your 3" OE trailer hitch that you can still maintain a high weight capacity. To get the highest capacity possible, use a standard weight distribution system with the TorkLift towing setup.


The shank of the Cannon extension slides into your receiver and is held in place with the included hitch pin and clip. The connection between the extension and your hitch is reinforced with a set bolt underneath the shank that tightens up to the receiver for a snug fit and prevents rattle and movement in hitch.


To give you absolute peace of mind, lateral support chains connect to the hitch and the extension on either side of your setup. Just attach one end of each chain to the extension and secure the opposite end to your hitch. Then tighten the chains with the integrated turnbuckles. These chains not only provide extra security to keep the extension in place in your hitch, but they also transfer some of the weight back from the extension to your frame-mounted hitch.


How to Determine the Cannon Length You Need

If the camper is mounted on the truck:

Measure from the face of the truck's rear bumper to the outside edge of the camper's bumper. This is the length of the extension that you need.


If the camper is not mounted on the truck:

1. Measure from the inside of the front of your truck bed to the outside face of the truck's rear bumper.

2. Measure the camper's overall floor length from the rubber bumpers at the front to the outside edge of the rear bumper.

3. Find the difference between these 2 figures by subtracting. The difference is the length of the extension that you need.

I am a retired nuclear physicist/engineer and I deman a certain level of engineering and quality in a product I purchase. The Torklift cannon hitch extension is an excellent well engineered product that was made specifically for my one ton ford. Could not recommend in more highly.

Quick assembly, all parts make up a nice install. Looks very strong. Highly recommend if you have the 3” receiver.

this setup works really well on my 2019 F450 with my 2020 Lance 995 camper! i use it with a dirt bike mount and also to haul a snowmobile trailer. very happy! thanks etrailer

The TorkLift hitch adapter works perfectly for our application. We have an Adventurer 910DB slide-in truck camper as well as a tandem Sea Doo trailer. It allows us to tow our trailer with the camper in place. The camper extends beyond the bed of our 2019 F350 dually (long bed), so we had to use something as an extension. I used the 36" wiring harness as well, and it all goes together as planned. It's pricey, though (as are all Torklift products); however, the quality is pretty good on most of their products. I gave this 4 stars instead of 5, since it had a raised area from one of their welds on the extension that prevented me from sliding it into the receiver and I had to use a dremel tool to grind it down. I then sprayed it with black spray paint to match. I have a lot of Torklift products on our truck and camper, so I'd say I'm a supporter; however, I wish they would make their prices more reasonable.

Ordered this for my 2019 F350 and Adventurer 910DB truck camper. Install was pretty easy with the basic hand tools. Seems to be a well built extension although have not pulled my trailer yet with this new setup. Also, fast shipping from Etrailer!

  • Hitch Extender for 2017 Ford F-350 With 3 Inch Factory Hitch
    There is one extender that will work with the 3 inch factory hitch on your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty, the TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension, and it comes in three different lengths: 36" Long # TLE1636, 42" Long # TLE1642 and 48" Long # TLE1648. The shorter 36 inch extension, which is likely what you can use since you mentioned the camper will only hang over 16 inches to 18 inches, has a towing capacity of 3,600 lbs and tongue weight capacity of 360 lbs, though that rating is increased...

  • Determining Which Hitch Extender To Tow Trailer W/ 2021 Ford F-350 W/ Wolfpack 850 Truck Bed Camper
    I would measure both. First measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on the trailer hitch receiver to the edge of the bumper, and then to the edge of the steps. While you are not going to be towing with the steps down, you do want to make sure you will be able to lower them with the trailer still attached or your will need to unhook the trailer before getting in the camper.

  • Hitch Extender for 2020 Ford F-450 with Camper that Extends Past Truck 36 inches
    Going out further than the overhang of the camper wouldn't be helpful and would only potentially add more leverage on the truck's hitch. Since your 2020 Ford Superduty has a camper than extends out past the rear of the truck 36 inches the Torklift Cannon part # TLE1636 would be exactly what you'd need.

  • How to Tow a Horse Trailer Behind a 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty with a Camper Extension of 48"
    Four feet of clearance is quite a bit, but there is one configuration that I found that might work. Since you have a 2020 Ford F-350 Super Duty, you probably have a 3" receiver. With this, you can add the TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension, part # TLE1636. This will extend 36" out. It's max towing weight is 3600 pounds and the max tongue weight is 360 pounds. However, with a weight distribution system, those are increased to 7200 pounds and 720 pounds, respectively. So, you will need to...

  • What Size B and W Tow and Stow Ball Mount Can Fit TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension
    The hitch opening at the end of the TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension # TLE1636 is a 2-1/2 inch hitch with an optional sleeve reducer that brings it down to 2 inch. Basically all hitch extenders like this take and reduce the hitch size down to the next smallest size so while there isn't a solution that's exactly what you are looking for you could go with a 2.5 inch hitch Tow and Stow like part # BWTS20040C and you'd be set.

  • Wall Thickness of Torklift Cannon Hitch Extension
    I checked with Torklift and they informed me that the Cannon # TLE1636 is made of 2 different tubes that overlap. One of them has a wall thickness of .25 and the other is .21. One tube fits inside of the other so the wall thickness is different at different points of the extension.

  • TorkLift 36 Inch Hitch Extender for Ford Factory 3 Inch Receiver Hitch
    I am a bit confused, because I was under the impression that Ford didn't begin offering the 3 inch hitch until the 2017 model year. As long as the hitch on your 2016 Ford truck is the 3 inch factory receiver, the Torklift # TLE1636 will be compatible. if you need an extension for the 7-way trailer connector, use part # TLW6036.

  • Weight Distribution and Hitch Extension for Truck Camper of 2019 Ford F-350 with 3 inch Hitch
    The Torklift Cannon part # TLE1636 that you referenced was designed specifically to fit the 3 inch hitch of your 2019 Ford F-350 and is rated for use with weight distribution so it's a great solution for you and it also can be used with the Fastway kit part # FA92-00-0600 that you referenced. This extender weighs 82 lbs and the Fastway weighs 94 lbs. Both of these do not need to be factored as tongue weight though as technically they become part of the "hitch" according to the manufacturers....

    For starters, the TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension part # TLE1636 that you referenced is only designed for a 2016+ Ford Super Duty with the 3" receiver tube. According to my research, the 2015 Ford Super Duty only comes with a 2-1/2" receiver tube so it does not appear that the TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension will work for you. Instead, you would want to consider the Curt Hitch Extension and Reducer part # C45048 which measures 34" from hitch pin to hitch pin and has a 6,000 lb weight capacity...

    We do offer hitch extensions for the factory 3" trailer hitch receiver on your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty, but there is not one that is 24" long. The shortest extension available is the TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension - 3" Ford Super Duty Factory Hitch # TLE1636 which is 36" long. This hitch was designed specifically for your 3" receiver and has a tongue weight rating of 360lbs and a trailer weight rating of 3600lbs.

  • Recommended Hitch Extender for Towing/Hitch Accessories With Truck Bed Camper
    Both the Curt # C45048 and the Reese # RP45292 hitch extensions would require using a 3 inch to 2-1/2 inch reducer sleeve # BWRHXA2183. This would work pretty well for towing but it would allow a hitch mounted accessory like a bike rack to bounce about quite a bit which would concern me. The bouncing force would increase the leverage applied to the extender and the hitch installed on the truck, so I'm not thrilled with either of those two solutions. I'd prefer so see you use an extender...
