Today, we're going to review part number RM-050. This is the Roadmaster Rollaway Trailer Hitch Protector. This part will prevent the trailer hitch on your vehicle from digging and dragging on pavement. It is a front-low design which will accommodate many hitches that other rollers will not fit.It is designed for trailer hitches that sit very close to the ground. It has a solid heavy-duty steel roller. When installed on your hitch receiver, this will work with or without a ball mount or a hitch accessory inserted into your hitch.

It does include the pin and the clip. A basic I want to give you an example of how this would insert into a trailer hitchI have an example here. This is a two-inch hitch receiver. Now, this rollaway part is designed for a hitch receiver that has a distance of 2 7/16 between the center of the hitch pinhole and the end of the face of your hitch receiver. At this distance, the support bar, which is right in here and on the bottom, will hold the rollaway tightly in place and level to the hitch receiver.

Now, if this distance on your hitch receiver is less than 2 7/16, there will be a gap between this bar and the hitch. If that gap is less than 1/8 of an inch, it will still work fine. Now, if that gap is more than 1/8 of an inch, you would have to weld shims onto to this or onto the hitch receiver to make it fit properly.What happens here is this would slide onto the front of your trailer hitch. As you can see, the hitch would lay into those support arms that are on there. If I run the pin through here, and as you can see how it lines up and lays in that support arm, this gap here, if there was ...

if that gap is more than 1/8 of an inch, you would have to weld shims on here to make it work correctly. If it's less than 1/8 of an inch, it would work fine. This part does come with the installation instructions which would pretty much mention all that I just talk to you about. That should do it for our review on part number RM-050.

- RM-050

Installation could not be simpler, pull hitch pin, set it in place and slide in new longer pin. I now have piece of mind that I won't be damaging my tow bar or hitch going into some gas stations. I was thinking about bolting a Nylon skid plate to my hitch until a friend showed me the rollaway. Great device. 160780

This product works great protecting the bike rack on my RV. 408312

- RM-050

Very well made, extra heavy duty, easy install and remove if needed. The fit for a 2” receiver is as advertised. I have a low spot when I enter the roadway where the hitch drags, this has fixed it. Looking forward to many years of severe. 441168


It is a great product, it is doing what is was purchased for, my hitch no longer dragged the ground and because of the heavy duty design I expect to get a lifetime of use. Very pleased.

The trailer hitch roller device fit perfectly the first time, no tools required and was done in less than 2 minutes. A high crown on the street caused my trailer hitch to gouge the pavement as I was backing out of my driveway. The roller works exactly as advertised and saves both the street pavement and the trailer hitch on the back of my 36 ft. class A motor-home. 651806

It arrived and was installed today. It looks like it will help with my motor home tail drag problem. Hopefully it will stand up to use. 447878
