  • Receiver: 2" x 2"
  • Tongue weight: 200 lbs
  • Gross towing weight: 6,000 lbs
  • Length: 15" overall
    • 5" From center of hitch pin hole to angled brace

Note: This adapter is designed to flat tow a vehicle only. Do not use to tow a trailer. 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.


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.

Roger and everyone at etrailer do a wonderful job. Always there to steer you in the right direction. If you go somewhere else your probably making a mistake.

Fantastic

Easy to install and works perfectly for our RV. Our Class C sits lower than our Jeep. This adapter puts us in the sweet spot for flat towing. Solid construction and I'm not worried about it at all.



by:

this item is perfect for me for my bike rack
Thanks



by:

I originally purchased a cheaper product. When I read the "manual" that came with it it stated "Not for Towing" Well what else would you do with it? This roadmaster product is really well made and like a lot of things in life complain about it the day you pay for it but never complain again. I will feel comfortable towing my Honda CRV and will not look back - pun intended!

These are technically not meant for towing a trailer. This is why it states that. You can definitely use it for your flat tow set up. You can even is it for a bike rack or cargo carrier.



by:

Decided to flat tow my Jeep behind our new motor home. The Jeep has a 3" lift and an after market bumper with D-ring tabs that I will be using to mount the tow bar. To stay withing the tow bar specifications, this adapter is exactly what I needed. I was going to make one but for the price and delivery, it was a no brainer to buy. It's well made and well finished. Another picture in a review had my exact situation and made it easier to make up my mind.
etrailer is one of the best on-line or box store customer service organizations that I have ever dealt with. The documentation, videos, shipping information all outstanding. Thanks



by:

The old saying, you get what you pay for. This is top notch and well made. Definitely would recommend



by:

Once again, Etrailer had just what I was looking for. This 6 inch lowering hitch allows my electric bike carrier to be lowered by 6 inches so that I do not have to lift so high to load the bikes. The extension also allows me to open the tailgate even with the bikes loaded.



by:

I got this so I can have a few inches lift on clearance when I pull in and out of my basement garage and it works. Now I can put the extension with the 6 inch rise and get in and out of the garage with out bottom out the bike rack and not damaging the driveway and my car or the bike rack. Which I took pictures. But if anyone wants pictures I can share and upload it.



by:

Well built and performed as advertised.



by:

Once again, etrailer came through for us!!! If we need anything related to our RV and tow car, THIS is where we always go. Thank you as usual for great customer service and superb products!!!!



by:

Just purchased.a used Class A motorhome and recognized that the receiver was at such a height that would require a high/low adapter extension to line up better with our tow vehicle. Ordered it on a Thurs night and received it the following Monday. It appears to be of excellent quality and the price and shipping charges were much less than the price at my local RV dealership!



by:

Item feels very heavy and well build. Also consider that will "stick out" of your rear bumper a good 10- 15 inches... see picture!
Car is Chevrolet Tracker- idea was to install rear step on the extension but at the moment I just have a towing shackle...

Perfect alignment with the 6"riser after I lifted my Jeep wrangler 3.5" plus 35" Nitto tires.

After 1 year with this product, the ion was perfect fit for 35 tire and a 3.5 lift. The tow bar fit is perfectly aligned between Jeep and 6 hitch riser.



by:

Have had good luck with RoadMaster products for many years and I have no doubt that this 6" drop adapter will have a long service life as well. I'm using it to level the tow bar between an F550 4x4 and a Geo Tracker 4x4.



by:

Haven't put it into action just yet, but tested it out for my cargo trailer that would often bottom out, and it looks like its going to work fine.



by:

I knew this product from having a previous 4” drop version. The customer service and lighting fast shipping make ETrailer a trusted source for any parts you may need.



by:

This hitch works great. The distance was perfect to keep my belongings away from my poorly engineered exhaust pipe. I would make sure I shop here before I go anywhere else for my trailer needs.



by:

I'm using the RM-076 as a 6" hitch riser to raise a bicycle rack and the front of my truck. Very well built.



by:

Wish I had this back last summer when I was on vacation. Bought a front hitch for my truck, but it was too low for my four place bike rack. So, long story short, my bike paid the price with two bent rims. Oooops.

Now that I've got this it won't happen again, unless the front axel blows out, or it's a really deep dip in the road - like over a foot.



by:

Solid construction with fast shipping and delivery



by:

My 6" High-low drop down hitch was just what I was looking for looks very well made, the receiver part was a little tight for my tow bar to slip in easy had to hammer it in. The finish seems to be of high quality and I know it will give me many years of service. The shipping and packaging was very good and arrived one day earlier than expected. Would buy from E-trailer again.

Still happy with my hitch and still holding up great.



by:

2004 VW New Beetle tow frame mounting is a very difficult job as the front bumper skin is mounted with four hidden torx bolts at the fender and bumper skin joint. The instructions say the frame can be mounted by leaving that seam connected and lifting the bumper skin but it is likely that damage will occur. So remove the skin. Reinstalling requires replacing the torx bolts and threaded plates with large sheet metal screws and clip nuts that can be purchased at a parts store. Also, be sure to check that the pins will insert after the frame is bolted on. I had clearance issues on the drivers side and had to remove the frame to trim the radiator support with great care as the A/C condenser has a tube within the area of trimming. Also, the braces below the frame fit poorly and require shimming and wiring harness and power steering cooler adjustment. It’s best to install brace to car frame bolts with the tow frame off using the provided nuts on wire rods. Leave loose and tighten when installing frame. The job took three days in my home garage with minimal tools. In retrospect I should have found a Jeep to tow but I owned the Beetle. Good luck.



by:

I received the Roadmaster High-Low Adaptor Hitch Mount in 2 days. It is exactly how it was described and pictured in the catalog. It is heavy duty with a 6000 lb tow rating. My tow vehicle is 4400 lbs so I don't anticipate any problems. I haven't used it yet, other than inserting it into the receiver. It will solve the tow bar level issue with the tow vehicle.

Works perfectly for the vehicle Im towing behind my motor home.



by:

I recently traded in my old toad, a 2009 Honda Fit, and rigged my '05 Element to tow instead, The Element was exactly six inches taller at the tow bar level, and this high-low adapter worked perfectly to bring my tow angle up to level! This adapter is a heavy-duty and well-crafted piece of equipment. Thanks again, etrailer.

My 6 hitch is still in perfect shape. When I began using it last year I spray-painted it twice, and put a thin film of grease in the hitch-pin holes, and it still looks like new, except for a few stickers...

  • High-Low Adapter with 10 Inches of Extension and 6 inches of Drop
    The Roadmaster adapter # RM-076 does provide an extension of 10-1/4 inches measured from the pin hole on the shank to the pin hole on its receiver. And it does provide a 6 inch drop. But it sounds like you need something that has the back of the receiver out 10 inches. If that is the case this adapter would be too short. A lot also depends on the application. In other words, what is it that you need to be able to do? The adapter above can only be used for flat towing a vehicle behind an...

  • Using the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter to Carry an Electric Wheelchair on a 2005 GMC Envoy
    The Roadmaster High-Low Adapter, part # RM-076 will be strong enough to carry the 78 pound carrier with the chair loaded, for a total of 188 pounds. Based on my research, the vehicle's factory package is rated for 5,000 to 7,000 pounds of trailer weight depending on the specific variation of the vehicle. This gives you an available 500 to 700 pounds of tongue weight. Using this adapter will reduce that by 50 percent, leaving you with 250 to 350 pounds. You can verify this information...

    When a flat-towed vehicle is different in height from the RV pulling it you can use a high/low hitch adapter like # RM-076 to allow the tow bar to remain level when connected at the RV and toad. Tow bars should never be more than 3-inches under or over level. The linked page displays all of the high/low adapters we offer which range in their drop dimension from 2- to 10-inches of drop. For reference, all base plate fits for your 2002 Cooper are shown on the other link. And a helpful...

  • Solution for Flat Towed Vehicle's Wheels that Don't Turn as the Tow Vehicle Turns
    Is the tow bar sitting level? Normally if there's a steering axle issue with the vehicle be flat towed the problem is due to the tow bar not sitting as level as it's needed to be. Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing.

  • High-Low Hitch Adapters for Use with Tow Bar
    The two ends of any tow bar should be within 3-inches above or below dead-level. Any more height difference than that can lead to the arms binding, which could affect tracking. We offer many 2-inch high/low hitch adapters, all shown on the linked page, that make it easy to level your tow bar for best performance. Just measure the height difference between the hitch and D-rings and choose the adapter that gets you to a level position by providing the appropriate rise or drop. For instance,...

  • Does Tongue Weight Figure of High Low Adapter Matter When Flat Towing Vehicle
    Since you are flat towing a vehicle you basically don't have any tongue weight at all since the vehicle has two axles spaced far apart unlike a trailer. The high low adapter part # RM-076 would work well for you since you need a 6 inch drop.

  • Recommended 6 Inch Rise Adapter For 2 Inch Hitch Receiver On 2016 Coachmen Leprechaun 319ds
    We don't have exacly what you are looking for, but the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 6" Rise/Drop - 6K GTW, 100 lbs TW # RM-076 may work for you. I went out to our warehouse and measured this product. It has 5-5/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the bottom of the angled brace. This will also give you another 1-1/2 inches of clearance on the rise of the angled portion.

  • Solution for Base Plate Tabs on Vehicle That Are 6 Inches Lower than Hitch Receiver on RV
    When hooking your vehicle up to the RV you want the tow bar to be in what is called the "Safe Zone", which is 3 inches above or below level (see attached image). With base plate tabs that are 6 inches below the hitch on your RV you will just want to add a high-low adapter to get the tow bar back into this zone. Because of the difference in height between RVs and standard passenger vehicles these adapters are needed more often than not. The Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-076 should work...

  • Hitch Adapter for Raising Up a Bike Rack on a 2007 Nissan Quest
    The High-Low adapter # RM-076 was not designed to be used for that purpose. The adapter has a tongue weight capacity of only 100 lbs, and is designed for towing a vehicle that is resting on the ground behind another vehicle. The Curt Multi-Purpose Ball Mount, # D210 might possibly be an option. The ball mount would raise your bike rack by 4-3/4 inches. The unit is rated at 7500 lbs towing, 750 lbs tongue weight. The receiver portion has a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs.
