Extension to Tow Trailer with Truck Tail Gate Down


Looking for help on a RV trailer hitch extension. I own a 2014 f150 Ecoboost, short box. I tow a 21ft camper. I need to be able to keep my tailgate down to haul my tav behind camper. As is my gate is too close to camper to pull. Do you have any products that would work? thanks

How long of an extension do you need? I've linked our complete selection for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers for you. One example is the MaxxTow, part # MT70024, that's 12 inches long.

Another option is an extra long ball mount like part # 80232. It's 15-3/4 inches long. This is often a better solution to your problem because you're not adding extra pieces to your tow setup. Hitch extenders can cause additional movement that isn't exactly ideal. If you also need a hitch ball to fit the extended ball mount use # 19260 for a 1-7/8 inch ball, # 40038 for a 2 inch or # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch.
