Expert Reply:

Ideally your tow bar will be level when it is connected to both your motorhome and your vehicle's base plates. At most it can be 3-inches high or low on either end. Based on your dimensions the 6-1/2-inch height difference you have means you'll want to use a high/low hitch adapter that provides 6-inches of drop.

Three such items are shown on the linked page: Roadmaster # RM-048-6, Blue Ox # BX88130 and Roadmaster # RM-076. All fit a 2-inch hitch but they have different weight capacities, so be sure to choose based on the weight of your towed car.
