Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Adapters - Hitch Extender - C45048 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Hitch Extension and Reducer for a 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch. This adapter bar is going to let you modify your hitch receiver to accommodate your application. What this does is it basically extends the length of your hitch receiver to clear obstacles like truck bed-mounted campers. This does reduce the size of your hitch receiver opening from a 2 1/2 inch receiver down to a 2 inch receiver. It's got the electrical bracket right here that's going to let you mount a connector like a 7-way wiring extension. That item is sold separately. If you're in need of something like that, you can find them right here at etrailer.com.

We're going to have the built-in loops. That's going to let you easily attach safety chains to the application. Very simple installation. All you've got to do is slide this into your 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver and then, again, it's going to provide you with a 2 inch by 2 inch opening. This extension is going to provide 34 inches of length, measuring from the center of this hole to the center of this hole. Or you can trim this down.

There's going to be a trim line right here, so you can trim it and then from the center of this hole to this hole is 24 inches, so you can have a 34 inch extension or if you need a 24 inch extension, you just trim right here through the steel and reduce it to a 24 inch extension. The unit is made from a sturdy steel construction. It's going to feature a really nice black powder coat finish on it, so it's going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion and looking good for a long time. It is going to come with 1 pin and 1 clip, so you can use that to secure the unit inside of your hitch, or you could use that to secure your hitch mount accessory, or whatever it is that you're going to put into your 2 inch by 2 inch opening. This is just a standard 5/8 inch diameter pin that comes with a clip. If you need another one for this application, you can find them here at etrailer.com. They are sold separately.

The product is made right here in the USA. Again, it's going to go into a 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver. Your receiver opening is 2 inches by inches. The extension length, so again, from the center of this hole to the center of this hole is 34 inches. From the center of this hole to the center of this hole is 24 inches. When you're using this as a 24 inch extension, your maximum gross trailer weight is 6000 pounds. When it's being used with a weight distribution, it increases to 8000 pounds.

Maximum tongue weight is 600 pounds, and then when used with weight distribution, it's going to be 800 pounds. The weight capacity when using this with a 34 inch extension, it's going to give you a maximum gross trailer weight of 4500 pounds. With weight distribution, we're looking at 6000 pounds. Tongue weight for the 34 inch extension, 450 pounds, and then with a weight distribution is 600 pounds. Keep in mind that the adapter bar must be trimmed down for applications that require only a 24 inch extension. To do this, you would use a hacksaw and you would cut along the trim marks shown right here on the bar. No trimming is needed for applications that require the 34 inch extended length. We also want to recommend that you use stabilizing straps when carrying hitch-mounted accessories with this adapter. You can find those here at etrailer.com. Those are going to be sold separately with part number 18050. That's going to do it, though, for today's look at the Curt Hitch Extension and Reducer for a 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver.

I love the adjustable length. I only needed 24" and easily cut on pre marked line. I now tow my 20' boat behind my F250 with cabover no problem. Great product! 432593

CURT C45048 HITCH EXTENSION I drive a 2011 GMC 3500HD with an S&S 9.5 slide in camper. I needed an extension to be able to tow my boat behind the truck/camper. I saw this extension was on sale w/free shipping. I ordered on Sunday 9/10 and received it on Wednesday 9/13. The extension looks very heavy duty and it slipped right inside my vehicle receiver. The extension protrudes about 4" past the camper bumper. PERFECT! All of the welds look like quality welds. I just need to mount my trailer harness and I will be ready to go! Great service, great prices & delivery! 432164

The hitch extender is still doing a fantastic job! Very happy I purchased this product.

Excellent product. Easy to use. I recommend finding someone with a metal band saw to cut to length. I cut mine with a sawzaw metal blade and finished it with a high grit sanding disc and it turned out ok- not perfect. I towed my boat behind my truck with the camper on it and it worked good. I’ve also attached my motorcycle rack with my 2013 ktm 450. To be on the safe side calculate your tounge weight before towing. 583518

Great extension just had to cut off about an inch to fit it on my truck. I did not receive the pin for it. 523057

by:

Product is heavy duty, and, tho I haven't used it yet, I expect great results like previous reviewers. Price was good and customer service dealt quickly and favorably on a small issue I had. I did have to cut 1 1:2 inches off to make it fit in front of my spare, but that was no surprise because I read that other buyers had dealt with the same issue. Chevy/GMC trucks spare tires get in the way a bit. Very satisfied. Have bought from etrailer in the past and don't think they can be beat. Thanks to Caleb for his help. 418607

Really well. I just used it to tow my boat halfway across Washington behind my pickup camper and it worked great. I’ve used it several times now and am very happy with what it allows me to do.

Product arrived on time. Although I won't get a chance to use it for a few months it seems perfect for my application. Looks like I will need a good saw to cut the extension down to the 24 inch length. Very solid. 335862

I bought this Hitch extension to pull a small enclosed trailer for my motorcycle and for a hitch mounted bicycle rack. I have a slide in truck camper that extends beyond the truck. It is made very well and the paint is also good. Will work perfect for both applications. 478811



- C45048
by:

Exactly as described and I custom tethered it to the camper bumper for more stability. I did have to drill out the pin hole a little as it did not line up 100% to get the pin inserted, but it is going to work very well. 524937



- C45048
by:

First off it was the best price out there. High quality and very nice to even look at. It's all setup for the purpose it was designed. The shipping time was well within reason. When I have a need in the future, this will be my first stop. I'd leave a picture but I have some work to be done on my truck before actually mounting. I was worried I wouldn't be able to find an extended hitch this long after having bought my new camper. It was longer than expected but Curt and etrailer filled the bill. 382162



- C45048
by:

Extender was as advertised, I inserted it into my hitch, measured twice, then cut it off on the line indicated for 24 inch length. Used a metal cutting blade in my 71/2 circular saw and didn't take much time or effort. Noticed that the holes for the pin didn't quite line up, the pin wouldn't slide thru, on both the 24 inch hole or the 34 inch hole. I took a drill and 1/2 inch bit and slightly reamed out the holes. Once done, the pin slipped right thru. My TC is a Lance 1010, 10 foot long. The end of the extender is several inches back under the bumper step of the camper, and when the stinger is put in place, the hitch ball is three to four inches away from the bumper. It looks just right. 428616



- C45048
by:

Received hitch extension as promised. The longest hole did not line up with hole in the factory bumper as it was too long and hit on the spare tire. Had to cut about 1" off the align with holes in the bumper and the extension. Product looks good on the vehicle, have yet to try it out with a trailer, but don't anticipate any problems. The wiring harness extension wouldn't fit through the hole in the mounting plate so had to unwire, then pass through the hole, then rewire the plug to be able to mount it to the extension. Looks good now tho. 200901

Excellent! I had to pay for delivery to Alaska and etrailer upgraded the shipment for fast delivery, compared to truck rate time. Thank You for your help. The Curt hitch extension has excellent fit and finish for my Ram 3500. 602802

Great product seemingly designed for my 2017 RAM 3500 dually with a Host Mammoth 11.6 truck camper. I put my ebike on a rack that slips nicely into the narrowed down extension this unit offers. The long setting is just perfect for my rig. I now am considering a boat or off-road equipment to tow. I think it costs too much, hence only 4 stars. 577445



- C45048
by:

We bought this extender as an alternative to a 'Super Hitch' that would have cost 4 times as much. Our need was to pull a 17 foot fiberglass boat behind our pickup with a truck bed camper that extended out a couple feet of the box. We pulled that boat about 4,000 miles this summer, and this hitch worked great. Unless you are pulling something with a lot of weight, this hitch is the answer to your problems! 573764



- C45048
by:

Extension solved our problem of the camper overhang obstructing the trailer hitch. There is some side to side movement with all the assembled components, which can be tightened up by various devices (shim accessories etc.) Manufacturer states that a bit of slop is expected and safe and we have seen no problem with this issue. 572150



- C45048
by:

Just what you need to extend your 2 1/2" truck receiver for a 2" hitch. Well made with good welds and paint. This has a slight up bend in the middle which is helpful. I use it to extend my Ram 3500 class 5 hitch when I have my 10'2" truck camper mounted. Pay close attention to the weight rating which is clearly displayed. You can cut this to make a 24" extension or use it as is for a 34" extension. 571564

Haven't had a chance to use yet , But looks like it is just what I needed, thanks for your great service ,received it in great shape and a timely order, And thanks for the help with the tracking, I do and will recommend you to others! 568793

the original add said it came with a 2 1/2" to 2" reducer. this did not come with it. 552021


Comments

The C45048 is a hitch extender and reducer. One end of the extender should be 2-1/2 inches to fit your 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver opening and the other end of the extender is a 2 x 2 inch opening.

I recieved the hitch extension very quickly and the order process was very easy. The extension was exactly like advertised and installed easily. I plan on using the extension to tow my jeep on a tow bar and it hitched up perfectly. The only problem that I have with the product is that I only needed a 24" extension but had to order this one that also does 34". It would have been nicer to have been able to order a 24" and not cut off and waist 10" from this unit. 449405

- C45048
by:

Looks like it'll do the job. I have one little problem which will be easy to solve: On the 2.5" end, the length from the pin hole to the end of the unit is about 1/8th" too long (it interferes with the spare tire) so that I can't get the retainer pin thru. 430217

Great looking product. Seems heavy enough to do the job. Will have to cut off about 3/4 of an inch at hitch end to fit in my 2014 Silverado 2500 HD hitch without hitting the spare.

Do you have a question about this Hitch Adapter?


  • Recommended Hitch Extender For 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver 7 Inches Long
  • We don't have a 7 inch extension for your 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver. The closest we have is the Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender - 2-1/2" to 2" Trailer Hitch - 6" Long # HR26. Since that is a reducer and an inch shorter, it most likely isn't what you need. We have 2-1/2 to 2-1/2 inch extensions, but they are 24 inches long like # C45048. My recommendation is to get the Reese Combo Bar 18" with 2-1/2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # 11029 which is unfinished and can be cut to size and...

  • How to Extend Trailer Hitch to Clear Truck Bed Camper
  • A weight distribution system like the Reese # RP66541 is not going to add the length you are needing to clear the slide-in camper on your truck bed by itself. However, to reach the 6,000 pound weight capacity on the Reese Hitch Box Extension and Reducer # RP45292 when it is fully extended, a weight distribution system needs to be installed. Without a weight distribution system, this extension has a weight capacity of just 4,500 pounds when extended to 34 inches. When used with a weight...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender Approximately 3 Feet Long for 4800 lb Trailer
  • If you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver on your truck then you can use the Curt # C45048 which will give you 34 inches of extension and can use weight distribution to get you to towing capacity needed. To get the same 34 inches, you can also use the Reese # RP45292 which is rated for the same capacity with weight distribution. Another option for a 2-1/2 inch receiver is Reese # RP45018, which will also allow the capacity of up to 6,000 lbs with weight distribution, but will give you a 41...

  • Recommended Towing Trailer Hitch Extender For 2017 Ram 3500 Short Bed With Truck Bed Camper
  • If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver on your 2017 Ram 3500, I recommend the Curt Hitch Extension and Reducer for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches - 24" to 34" Long # C45048. This would be limited to 4,500 lbs without weight distribution or 6000 lbs with weight distribution. If you don't have a factory receiver, then you will need the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V Commercial Duty - 2-1/2" # C15803 to use that extension.

  • Hitch Receiver Extension and Reducer for Towing a Trailer with a Truck Camper
  • There's a couple of ways you can do this. Which way is better will depend on the amount of extension you need. One is to use an extension, like the Curt # C45048 which will give you an extra 24 or 34 inches. Then you will use a ball mount in the extension that also reduces your hitch to a 2 inch receiver. Another is to use a reducer in the 2-1/2 inch receiver. The Reese Titan # 58102 will work for this. Then get an extra long ball mount like the Hidden Hitch # 80232 that is 15-3/4...

  • Hitch Extension Recommendation that Can Fit 2017 Ford F-350 with 2-1/2 inch Hitch

Aside from having a much better price the Curt will function the exact same as the Reese for all intents and purposes.

  • Hitch Extension Recommendation for a 2004 GMC Sierra for Towing 5,500 lb Boat Trailer
  • First thing you will need to do is install a hitch with a 2-1/2 inch opening like the Curt Hitch part # C15703 so that you can use a longer hitch extension that is going to have a decent amount of capacity. Then for a hitch extender the part # C45048 would be a great option as it has enough capacity and can be used to give 24 or 34 inches of extension.

The longer the extension is the lower the capacity is. With this Reese part # RP45018 the maximum towing weight rating at the full 48-inches is 4000-lbs, but if the extension is cut down to 41-inches the capacity rises to 5000-lbs. If a weight distribution system is employed then both ratings are higher, 6000 and 7500-lbs,...
