Most tow systems require some sort of hitch accessory to either raise or lower the tow bar to an appropriate level. The "Safe Zone" for a motor-home-mounted tow bar ranges from 3" above level to 3" below. Car-mounted models must be absolutely level. This high-low adapter can provide you with the necessary drop or desired rise to achieve a level tow bar setup.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter Review

Today on our motor home we're going to be installing the Roadmaster High-Low 8" Hitch Adapter, part number RM-048-8. The hitch adapter is rated for 10,000 pounds of towing weight and 400 pounds of tongue weight. It will fit the 2" x 2" receiver tubes. As you can see it has a pre-drilled hole. The center of the hitch pin hole to the angle brace is 4 1/2". And the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the receiver tube is 7 1/4". As you can see it has a nice, black finish to prevent rust and corrosion. We're going to be setting up for the tow bar, so we can tow a vehicle behind our motor home.

When setting up, we'll need to measure from the ground up to the bottom of the receiver tube. We'll take that measurement and then go to the attachment points on our base plate. As you can see there's quite a difference between the two. We have almost 9". We don't want more than a 2" difference between the hitch height and our attachment point height. Whether it's high or low, we want to stay within that 4" variance.

Note: the pinning clip is not including, but to install it in the rise position, you simply take the mount, slide it into your hitch, lining up the hitch pin holes, and then install the pinning clip. But for our application, we're going to put it in the drop position. We'll just take that back out, turn it over, slide it in, line it up, and install our pinning clip. Now we're ready to go ahead and put our tow bar onto our drop and then connect the vehicle. There you have it for the Roadmaster High-Low 8" Hitch Adapter, part number RM-048-8. .

The only thing I have changed is to have an additional receiver welded on top to carry a bike rack. The drop was perfect to tow my 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT 404904

Great selection of hitch adapters. Just what I needed to lower a dirt bike carrier on a lifted truck. Shipping was fast and free. 520374


Comments
Be aware that the adapter has a 400 lb tongue weight capacity. This means that the dirt bike and the carriers combined weight cannot exceed 400 lbs.

I use this product as a means of lowering my motorcycle rack on the rear of my Class A motor home, thereby making the bike somewhat easier to get off the rack. So far I have no complaints or criticisms, the 8" hi-lo adaptor does precisely what I wanted it to do. 502965


Comments
Be aware that using an extender like the # RM-048-8 will lower the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent. Because the load has been moved further away from the receiver, more leverage is being applied to the hitch.

The product solved my problem by lowering the attach height on my motorhome making it level with that on the vehicle being towed. 250920


Comments
I feel that the design limit for the torque this attachment imparts on the motorhome trailer hitch exceeds the design limit of the motorhome hitch. A few hard stops seem to have bent the motorhome hitch a little. I am towing a 4k lb vehicle with a 2015 Winnebago Vista.

Thanks for the feedback. It is always that the lowest rated component of the towing system be the determining factor for any towing situation. I looked on-line and it looks like your 2015 Winnebago Vista could have been equipped with a hitch rated for up to 5K from the factory. Please confirm that the hitch is rated appropriately for the vehicle you are towing. Additionally a supplemental braking system like the Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400 is recommended. If you do have a braking system it may need some adjustments for more effective braking of your toad. I have also included a link to one of our help articles that explains all the individual components of a flat towing system for your reference.

I uploaded two photos one with a 4 inch drop then when the 8 inch drop showed up and love much it leveled out my toad. The shank that goes into the receiver is a solid metal bar not a hollow one I removed. The drop is very well made and it puts my toad into the safe zone for towing. 705754

This has worked well. Seems well built\sturdy. I needed it to match the bumper height of my lifted Jeep tow bar to my truck hitch. My truck hitch with my camper on was too low. The Jeep came up over the towbar and rear ended my camper after braking for a dip. This hitch makes the truck hitch the same height as the Jeep tow bar connection 610596

Great quick service right on time as etrailer said it would arrive. Incredibly strong construction I am sure this adapter will not break like my previous one from another company. Finish is excellent not surel it is power costed or painted but it looks very durable and a nice glossy black. I am using it for a 60”x35” aluminum cart that I carry items on, hay bales, deer, furniture etc. this is with my truck. Very pleased! Recommend highly. Oh, and the 8” rise or drop is great. I use it as a rise for more ground clearance for my cart 584510

I received the 8” High/Low adapter for Tow Bars within days of ordering. I probably should have realized that I would need to order the “Quiet Hitch” stabilizers to eliminate the “play” that is common to a receiver hitch. This “play” is magnified with a lengthy and tall hitch riser like the RM-048-8. 569141

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Accessories and Parts

  • How Level Does Towbar For Flat Towing Vehicle Behind Motorhome Need to Be
    According to Blue Ox and Roadmaster, you want to use a High/Low adapter that would place the tow bar's attachment to the hitch no more than 3 inches above or below level. Anywhere WITHIN that range would be perfectly acceptable.

  • High/Low Hitch Adapter to Keep Nighthawk Tow Bar RM-677 Level for Best Operation
    Roadmaster does specify the 3-inch safe zone for tow bar height differences at the motorhome and toad ends. Really any tow bar will perform better when it is level since there will be less arm tube friction. A level tow bar will also endure less mechanical stress and it will put less stress on the base plates, the towed vehicle's frame and its suspension. Since you have invested in the Nighthawk # RM-677, one of the best tow bars available, I recommend you protect your investment...

  • Towing a Trailer with a Coupler that is Higher than the Trailer Hitch on a Jeep Wrangler
    All you need is a ball mount that allows you to tow the trailer level. You can measure for the amount of rise needed to select the correct model. A ball mount with rise is needed when the trailer coupler is higher than the hitch receiver on the vehicle. Have the trailer and the Jeep Wrangler parked on level ground. Disconnect the trailer from the Jeep. Measure from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver opening. Then use the trailer jack to make the trailer level and measure from...

  • Hitch Adapter Recommendation For Flat Towing
    We do carry adapter bars for the very reason you are experiencing. Many tow systems require an adapter to make the tow bar more level. Normally the safe zone for towing a vehicle is either 3 inches above or 3 inches below. You want to make sure your towed vehicle is absolutely level for safe towing. I recommend the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars, part # RM-048-8. It has a weight capacity of 10,000 lbs, fits 2 inch by 2 inch receivers, and has a rise/drop of 8 inches. It measures...

  • Can High/Low Hitch Adapter Be Used with Yakima Four Timer Hitch Bike Rack
    Hitch adapters like Roadmaster high/low adapter # RM-048-8, which provides 8-inches of rise or drop, will give you more clearance but all such adapters also cost you half of your hitch's rated capacity. The loss of hitch capacity from use of an adapter results from the longer distance between the hitch tube and the actual load. Extending that distance applies more leverage on the hitch tube and this results in the hitch being able to handle only half as much weight. If the combined weight...

  • Availability of Hitch Extension To Keep Pickup From Hitting RV When Being Flat Towed
    The Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter, part # RM-048-8, will extend the truck further away from the RV, but it will also change the height of your tow bar connection. It has a 8 inch rise or drop which will either raise or lower the tow bar connection of your pickup to the RV. If you have a level connection now you will not want to use the # RM-048-8 to extend your vehicle away from the RV. The end of the tow bar that attaches to the base plates on the vehicle should not exceed a rise...

  • Can a High-Low Trailer Hitch Adapter # RM-048-8 be Used To Raise up a Cargo Carrier
    The Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter, # RM-048-8, is only designed for tow bar applications. I do have another, more cost effective solution. You could use the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210. Though it is designed to tow while carrying a cargo carrier or bike rack, you can use it to just carry a cargo carrier. The rise on the receiver is not as high as the High-Low adapter, but the receiver portion has a 350 lb tongue weight.

  • Can High-Low Adapter be Used for Towing a Car Dolly Behind an RV?
    The Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-048-8 is used for flat towing and not for towing a trailer or dolly.

First, make sure both your Winnebago and the tow dolly are parked on level ground; you'll then want to measure from the ground to the top of your hitch receiver. Next, measure...

  • Weight Distribution Shank or Ball Mount with 8 Inch Drop to Tow Airstream Level with 1998 Suburban
    It sounds like you are using weight distribution (levelers) so you would need a shank that offers enough drop to tow the trailer level. Curt weight distribution shank # C17124 offers 9-1/2 inches of drop on round bar weight distribution systems and 7-1/2 inches for trunnion bar systems. The holes in it are 3/4 inches in diameter and spaced 1-1/4 inches apart on center. If you know what weight distribution system you have I can determine if this shank is indeed compatible.

  • What is Needed to Adjust Weight Distribution System When Towing with Different Vehicle
    I do have a solution for you, however the High-Low Adapters we have available, such as the Roadmaster # RM-048-8 that you referenced, are designed for flat towing only (towing another vehicle behind an RV/motorhome with all 4 wheels on the ground). These adapters are not designed and aren't suitable for towing a trailer. Since it sounds like you have a weight distribution system, I simply recommend changing to an adjustable shank that features the kind of drop you will be needing. Your...

  • Can the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter Be Used with Kuat Bike Rack for Rear Hatch Clearance
    The Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-048-8 can be used with a bike rack. However, when using with a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, the tongue weight of your hitch will be reduced by at least 50 percent. For example, if your vehicle's trailer hitch has a tongue weight rating of 350 pounds, when using the high-low adapter, the hitch can only handle 175 pounds of tongue weight. This reduced tongue weight includes both the weight of the rack and the weight...

  • Using Mobility Chair Carrier on Taller Vehicle That Has a 2-Inch Hitch
    We do offer a range of high/low 2-inch hitch adapters like the Roadmaster # RM-048-8 that provides 8-inches of drop or rise. The trouble with adapters is that they have the unavoidable side-effect of cutting your hitch's capacity by 50-percent. This is a result of the change in geometry and leverage that occurs from adding in the adapter. Let's say your hitch's safety sticker indicates a tongue weight (TW) capacity of 500-lbs. If you were to use an adapter you'd end up with a halved...

  • How To Determine What High-Low Adapter Is Needed When Flat-Towing
    You want the tow bar to be as level as possible to tow the vehicle safely. To find out what high-low adapters you need to flat tow you can take a couple measurements.You can park the towed vehicle on level ground and then measure from the ground to the bottom of the base plate arms that attach to the tow bar. Then just measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the RV. If the RV receiver is higher as you mentioned, the difference is the amount of drop you will...

  • Can a Roadmaster High-Low Adapter be Used with a Kawasaki Mule for Off-the-Road Towing
    If the trailer has a regular coupler that fits on a ball then the best solution is a ball mount with the proper rise. I really cannot recommend using any of the High-Low adapters for anything other than flat towing a vehicle, even if it could work. But it sound like a ball mount with the proper rise is the ideal solution. The ball mount we have with the most rise is # AMSC12. It has 10-3/4 inches rise. But something like # 80248 with 9-3/4 inches might be better. I have included a link...

The Roadmaster has a solid steel shank for strength rather than a hollow one like the MaxxTow # MT70070 and it gives you a full 8-inches of rise.
