Video Transcript for Reese Trailer Hitch RP3022 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the spacer block. This spacer block is normally used in a situation where you're going to be using a fish wire or a bolt leader, something like this, to bring a bolt through a hole that's in a closed vehicle frame. You want to use the spacer block with the bolt, usually like a carriage bolt like this that would go through the spacer block. You want to hold that into the frame. You'll use the bolt leader or fish wire to attach to the end of this bolt, along with the spacer block, and bring it through the hole in the frame. When you detach the bolt leader, it will leave your bolt sticking out thought the vehicle frame to allow you to hook your trailer hitch to your fifth wheel, your gooseneck, or any other item like that. Just to give you a few dimensions on this spacer block, overall length on it, it's going to be right at three inches.

The width on it is right at one inch. The thickness is right at a quarter inch. That should do it for the review on the spacer block.

Trailer Hitch Spacer Block - 3" Long x 1" Wide x 1/4" Thick - RP3022

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (167 Customer Reviews)

Replaces (1) 3" long x 1" wide x 1/4" thick spacer block for your trailer hitch receiver.


Part are as stated and will work well on hitch install
Did take extra time for delivery due to supply chain issue
No fault of etrailer
Communication with me was excellent


The hole in the block must be in Metric size for a Canadian built vehicle. Otherwise the Receiver is very versatile. First as a receiver, second to hold a winch, third to hold a boat cradle over the roof of the truck.

These are typically used with a bolt leader to bring a bolt through a hole in a closed vehicle frame. This spacer block fits a half inch carriage bolt.

A police car pulled into my lane and hit me head on. I escaped without injury but my car was totalled ( photo attached). I salvaged my brand new trailer hitch but the company that put it on would not install it on my new car because there were two bolts and spacers I was unable to recover. Luckily I learned they got the hitch from etrailer. I called and got Rose who was very friendly and helpful and soon had my parts on their way to me. Wish all my purchases were this easy.


Product was fine, I had to take the hitch to my local shop because I couldn't get the last bolt through to complete the installation. My SUV really benefited from being put on a lift by my local shop, they completed the installation.


They arrived quickly, they fit, and they are performing as they should. Thank you.


Very robust. Exactly what I needed to mount my hitch on my VW GTI.


I purchased a used hitch for my CRV and did not have all the hardware to install it. I called etrailer and received great customer service and was able to get all the hardware that I needed to make the installation a breeze. I would definitely recommend the bolt leaders if you're going to be doing installation yourself it made the job a lot easier on me.


This part was on back order but was sent as soon as it came in before the expected date.


These backing blocks were like the original equipment and worked perfectly. Shipping was very quick.


Thus is a bad news good need review. The package was delivered as told bad news the package was damaged and spacers missing. Good news call to customer service was quickly answered and a re ship was done same day.

I have bought several things from etrailer always as promised with some of the best customer service of any online company I buy from.

John S - 11/14/2019


Worked perfectly as I was installing my trailer hitch, which is a simple task but ran into an issue. The bolt holes were pretty corroded on the right side so they needed the threads cleaned, with good ole WD 40 I continued to clean with a tap. After getting 2 done the center one weld nut break off inside the frame, as they have very small tack welds from factory holding them on. So I ordered up this bolt, plate, washer, leader, and a nut to fix the issue, it was simple and an easy fix to a problem at first I wasnt sure how I was going to fix. Fast shipping from and it was done ready to be used in a jiffy. Highly recommend

The parts are doing what they were intended to do and super happy with my purchases. If I am ever in need for future vehicles etc I wouldnt hesitate to buy from you again. Thanks again Ryan thumbs up
Ryan T - 01/16/2018


Delivery was fast. Wanted to put hitch on
A different car(same model/year) and not used stressed bolts. Needed spacers and leaders so purchased the items needed from one location,in one box.


Exactly what I was looking for and it matches the description on the website. Couldn't be happier!


I had to grind the ends down a bit and round the corners to make them fit where I needed them to go. However, they worked perfectly!


I haven't used this product yet; however, I am 100% satisfied of the communication with etrailer regarding this product of being on hold to them. I still received it quickly and uneventfully. I order 10 and got 10 even though I just needed 2 because I am sure this item will come in handy with other applications other than reattaching receiver hitches. The carriage bolts required for this product was easily located at the local Tractor Supply.

Thanks etrailer


How easy was the install of my 2008 Ford Escape hitch?

I watched the video and then I installed my hitch two days before I was scheduled for rotary cuff surgery. My right shoulder was more cosmetic than functional for heavy lifting. So, patiently, with jacks at the ready, I installed my hitch. I had to call on my wife once to hold a screw driver, otherwise, I did it solo.

In total, it took less than an hour and I needed one arm, an adjustable wrench, vise grips to hold the lead wire, some floor jacks and a wife (for about 15 seconds after she stopped asking questions.)

I didn't do the electrical, because I'm using it for bike racks only.


I applaud after I did not receive my order in a reasonable amount of time, I called and they were very responsive and quickly got my order to me. Great job! This unique product was tough to find anywhere else and it will work great when I install my receiver hitch assembly.


Received my package for lost parts for my Curt 13333 hitch for my Ram 1500. I thought shipping was a little exaggerated for 4 small parts, but this was the only places I could find them. Prices for the actual parts were excellent.

The spacers were simple steel with a square hole in them, not a big thing, but difficult to find elsewhere and impossible for a DIYer to make.

Be warned, if you plan on purchasing item 8101-1, the 1/2" bolt leader, they are cut WAY TOO SHORT. Plan on buying 2 and make small hooks on the ends and tape the ends together, that's the only way to use them.


A new-to-me truck meant a
new hitch installation. Needing the mounting hardware for a hitch that I already own, I tried several local vendors for the needed parts to no avail. After a brief internet search, I easily located the bolts, nuts, washers, and fish wire on your website and placed an order. Then, WOW! The level of attention and communication from your staff regarding my order was incredible. The order and the communication was timely, accurate, and thorough. I am now a loyal customer. Thanks for the great experience! Wish me luck in not busting my knuckles during installation.



Received the spacer blocks today and they are excellent. Good quality and they are very difficult to find. I read several internet forums topics where people spent loads of time and money trying to create these things. This is the cheapest and simplest option i could find on the internet. Also the bolt leaders save a lot of time from trying to devise a solution to pull a bolt through narrow frame rails. With these leaders the bolt hole only needs to be as big as the bolt itself because the leader does not take up any space and holds the bolt very securely.


Thanks etrailer for the parts to install a hitch receiver on my son's 08 Ford Escape Hybrid. I had the receiver but not the hardware backing plates. these fit perfectly. reasonable prices and quick shipping.


I used this to help with a Jeep XJ trailer hitch install. I pretty much destroyed the install wires due to the way I had to fish the parts through the frame area, but the install was successful.


Good product, easy transaction!!!


This carriage bolt block was impossible to find locally. Couple this with the bolt leader wire and the how to video on this website and I had zero issues. I was actually amazed at how quickly I was able to fish the bolt/spacer combo into the frame of my car to fix the broken weld but issue. Now all I need is the bolt up the hitch. Thanks etrailer!


(RP-01266-007, 80101-1)
My Odyssey had
a missing weld nut, etrailer and their team had the answer. From the parts to the helpful video's - kudo's to etrailer and their great support!

I was able to install my receiver and wiring harness - thank you!

See what our Experts say about this Reese Accessories and Parts

  • What is the Trailer Hitch Spacer Block Made From
    The Trailer Hitch Spacer Block - 3" Long x 1" Wide x 1/4" Thick # RP3022 is made of carbon steel, so it will be susceptible to corrosion. You could put a coating of some sort of Plasti-dip type substance on this before installation to help protect against that, but I don't believe it's completely necessary because of the typical use of this part will shield it from most direct exposure to moisture.

  • Replacement Spacer Block to Install a Trailer hitch on a 2012 Ford Focus
    I doubt a hardware store would have one but you never know. Block # RP3022 could work. the only difference is that the original is 1/4 x 7/8 x 3 inches and this one is 1/4 x 1 x 3 inches. I am sure the frame is wider than 1 inch!

  • Replacement Spacer Block For Trailer Hitch On 2000 Honda CR-V
    The spacer block you can order is part # RP3022. This block measures 1/4 inch thick and is 1-inch wide and 3-inches long. Trailer Hitch Hardware is designed for a one-time use only and if the hitch is being re-installed I recommend replacing all of the hardware for installation. For the kit you would need part # RHK. Then put your hitch number in the box and from the drop-down menu select the hitch manufacturer. The complete hitch installation kit will be sent to you.

  • Completing Hitch Install on 2008 Toyota RAV4 after Weld Nut Breaks
    Your best bet would be to use the spacer block you referenced, in conjunction with a grade 5 or higher, 1/2 inch by 1-1/2 inch carriage bolt, lock washer and nut. You would use a fish wire like part # 80101-1 to fish the bolt and the block washer up into the frame member through the access hole shown in the photo and out the hole where you want to install the hitch. You might need to slightly enlarge the access hole as shown in order for the head of the carriage bolt and the block washer...

  • Having Trouble Getting Curt Trailer hitch to Sit Flush on the Frame of a 2015 Toyota Highlander
    It is not uncommon for some hitch installations to require spacer blocks of some kind to get the hitch to install properly. If they are required in your situation then it is permissible to use them. A spacer block such as # RP3022 could be used unless Curt recommended to you a specific spacer. You will want to make sure the hitch is level by using spacer blocks equally on the left and right side as needed. Since this is on a very new vehicle, the material that is causing the fit issue...

  • How To Install Hitch On Vehicle with Broken or Cross-Threaded Weld Nuts
    The only way forward once the weld nuts have been cross-threaded or broken is to drill them out and use carriage bolts and spacer bolts to replace them. The fish wire you need along with the spacer blocks are not common so you will want to get them from us; part # RP3022 and part # C58400 but the 1/2" carriage bolts and nuts you'll need to get from a local hardware store.

  • Bolt for Hitch Will Not Torque Down
    If a bolt will not torque down while installing a trailer hitch this means the bolt was likely cross threaded. There are a few options to fix this, the first would be drill out and then re-tap the hole with the next largest thread size using a kit like the Tap Wrench Kit for Standard Pipe Sizes part # PT22FR. The weld nut however could break when tightening down the new bolt so in which case the final option would be to drill the rest of the weld nut out and then using a spacer block like...

  • Solution for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Installation With Broken Weld Net on Kia Sorento
    A grade 8 carriage bolt would be fine to use to install the # 75684 and is comparable to the metric 10.9. In addition to the bolts you will want a spacer block # RP3022 as well as 1/2" Bolt Leader # 80101-1. You can use the bolt leader to fishwire the bolts and blocks through an opening in your frame to get them in place for installation. I have attached a helpful video to show what the process is like along with an installation video of the hitch itself.

  • Replacement Spacer Block For Trailer Hitch Receiver
    You'll need a new spacer block if you lost one inside your frame somehow, as a magnet scope is the best bet. So what you'll need to do is match up the spacer block size from your hitch with the closest available size: - Trailer Hitch Spacer Block - 3" Long x 1" Wide x 1/4" Thick # RP3022 - Replacement Spacer Block for Trailer Hitches - 3" Long x 1-1/2" Wide x 3/8" Thick # 01077-011 - Replacement Spacer Block for Trailer Hitches - 2" Long x 1" Wide x 7/16" Thick # 1080-012

You will then be able to use that with the Trailer Hitch Spacer Block # RP3022, Conical Toothed Washer # 01292-008, and Hex Nut # 55178 that you have already located to install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75095 on your 2000 Lexus LX 470.

  • Need Spacer Block to Install Used Trailer Hitch on 2008 Ford Edge
    We don't have the exact spacer block that would've been included with the # C13067 hitch but the # RP3022 comes very close. The block is a little narrower, and the hole is centered rather than being on one end. This means that the block may try to spin once the bolt is being tightened. If this happens, use an impact wrench. The impact wrench will spin fast enough to prevent the block from spinning. It might take a minute or so, but the bolt will tighten. You'd also need a few bolt leaders,...

  • How to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2005 Honda Pilot with 2 Broken Weldnuts in the Frame
    When using replacement hardware kit # RHK you would get the same hardware that originally came with the kit (some specialty pieces may not be included). Since you have broken weldnuts the only thing you can do is use a block and carriage bolt, drop them down through the frame using the fishwire technique and then use a nut to secure the hitch to that bolt. This is assuming you do not want to go through the trouble or expense of having new weldnuts professionally installed in the frame....

  • Removing a Broken Weld Nut from Inside of Vehicle Frame
    There are a couple things you can do to remove your current weld nut. One is using a drill bit to expand the hole slightly. Because of your limited access, I would use a bolt leader like # 80101-1 to fishwire bolts through the frame of your vehicle. Since you have broken weld nuts, you will have to use different hardware to complete installation. With that said, you will need spacer blocks # RP3022, 1/2 inch carriage bolts, Conical tooth washers # 01292-008 (tooth side facing towards the...
