Review of the Buyers Products RV Bumper Receiver Hitch


Hey guys, it's Colin here at etrailer today. We're going to take a look at, and I'm going to show you how to install, the RV Bumper Hitch from Buyers Products. Now, this hitch was made to be able to attach to your standard of four inch by four inch or four and a half inch by four inch bumper on the back of your travel trailer or fifth wheel trailer. Just gives you an option to be able to get any hitch-mounted accessories, like a bike rack or a cargo carrier loaded up, and that's going to conserve on space on the inside of your vehicle. One thing I do want to point out is that this hitch was not made to tow anything. So if you're looking for a hitch to mount to your bumper, which you can tow small utility trailers or kayak trailers with, we've got plenty of those available here at etrailer.This is really just going to be a nice and sturdy receiver hitch that Buyers Products made.

It's going to have a nice sturdy steel construction and a black powder coat finish, which is going to help resist rust and corrosion. All the hardware is going to be Zinc plated as well, and again, just make sure it lasts a lot longer and resist rust and corrosion. Now, as far as how we mounted it, we have it on top of our bumper right now. But if you find it better for your application to mount it to the bottom, you can do so. We just thought that for ground clearance issues, we would avoid that, by putting it on the top.

Now this is going to be a standard two inch by two inch opening. That's going to be good for a lot of products out there. Most of them are inch and a quarter, most likely will have a sleave to be able to convert to this two inch opening.Now whether you're going to use a bike rack or a cargo carrier, whatever accessory you might have, make sure that you are under the weight limit of 200 pounds. And you always want to double check and make sure that your bumper can handle that weight. And you also want to make sure with any bike rack you use that it is RV motor home, fifth wheel or travel trailer approved, depending on your application.

We have a Thule Hitching Post Pro right here, which is fifth wheel approved. That's for our application right now. Just show you what it looks like.Now that we've gone over some of those features, let's go ahead and show you how to get this hitch installed. A great thing about these RV bumper hitches is that you can actually adjust them to the left or to the right, depending on if you want to get another accessory loaded on the back, like a spare tire carrier. And when you're loading up your RV bumper hitch, if it is off to the side, let's say it's a bike rack.

Make sure that your load does not extend the width of your vehicle or trailer. To begin our install, we'll take our receiver hitch and get it into place. Then we're going to take our bolts and put them through the holes right here. Making sure that we have a lock washer and a flat washer on in that order. Now we'll grab one of our brackets and feed it up onto the bolt.We'll take two of our locknuts and just thread those on. Do that for both sides. And then repeat this for the other set of bolts. Now we're going to tighten all of our locknuts until our brackets are making contact with the bottom of our bumper. We'll snug everything up when we get both brackets up there. Now that we have the brackets touching the bottom of our bumper, to make sure that we get the hitch receiver facing completely out and making it straight, we're going to push it back until these front two bolts are flush against that bumper. Again, this is going to help make sure that our hitch is straight. From there, we'll just go ahead and tighten down all the way. Go ahead and give it a quick shake. Make sure that it's all tight, but from there you're ready to load up your favorite accessories, then hit the road. Well thank you all for watching. That's going to do it for our look at and install of the RV Bumper Hitch from Buyers Products.
