Video Transcript for Reese Super Titan Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve Review

Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Reese Hitch Reducer. So if you just upgraded trucks and now you have a massive hitch receiver, but you like the ball mount that you had before, B and W is kind of a high end ball mount, if you want to continue to use it, you can just reduce the size of your hitch receiver, and that's what the Reese is gonna be good for. It's gonna bring this down from a three inch all the way down to a two inch. So this is gonna bring our hitch capacity down a little bit. So now it's gonna have a gross trailer weight of 12,000 pounds and a tongue weight of 1,200 pounds. And this thing is gonna be one of the options that's actually gonna kind of stick out, so if you also need a little bit more distance from your hitch to whatever you're hooking up on, this is gonna give you a little bit more.

So let's go over some measurements here. So I'm just gonna measure from the original hitch pin hole to the new hitch pin hole. And we're gonna extend out an extra four inches. So just take that into account whenever you're figuring out if this is gonna be the right one for you. If I we're to compare this to another one that we have, there are some that just go inside your hitch receiver, so it's not really gonna stick anything out.

So if you like where it's at, you can go ahead and do that. But it's made of steel, has a nice powder coated finish, and a couple other specs for ya. When it comes to the dimensions, it's gonna be overall about 9 1/2 inches long, about 3 1/4 inches wide, and then 3 1/4 inches tall. And pretty much that's about it. When it comes to reducers, just make sure you get it reduced to the right size.

But this is gonna allow you to use some of those other accessories that you may already have on another vehicle or that you're transferring over work with your new truck. With this adapter, we are gonna have to use an extra hitch pin and clip just because it sticks out of the hitch. If you get one that just goes straight in the hitch, we're not gonna have to, but if you are grabbing this one, grab an extra pin and clip, but definitely get a locking one just because even if you have a locking one for your ball mount that goes right here, they can still just pull the pin and then take the adapter with them. So we want to prevent that. So grab a locking hitch pin and clip.

Let me pull this thing out. I mean, it's just like any other accessory. You just do it first. So that's pretty much it. There isn't really much to this at all, but just so you can see the whole entire thing. I really do think this is gonna be a good option for you and you don't just get the reducer with this, you get a little bit more distance from your vehicle to your trailer that you're hauling, which I kind of like as well. And that's basically it for our look at the Reese Three to Two Inch Adapter Sleeve..

I ordered this 3 inch to 2 inch hitch reducer because I had purchased a new RV and the receiver on the new RV is a 3 inch hitch. My previous RV hitch size was 2 inch. I needed a 2 inch receiver because I am re-using my Blue Ox tow bar which has a 2 inch hitch. Fit perfectly. See pictures.



- 38735
by:

This piece is exactly what I needed to make my Blue Ox tow bar work with 3" receiver on my Renegade Verona Super C RV. It also adds the extra 3-4 inches of clearance so that the two bar does not hit the RV when folded into the storage position.

This does NOT fit '17 Ford F350 built Jan '17. My F350 6.7l has a 3" receiver with a 5/8" hitch pin. This adapter has a 3/4" hitch pin hole. If indeed 3" receiver standard is 3/4" pin, then Ford messed up. Otherwise Reese is at fault.


Comments
The Reese # 38735 isnt compatible with the Ford 3 OEM receiver hitch due to the hitch pin hole discrepancy you mentioned. It is a fit for the Reese SuperTitan aftermarket 3 receiver hitch as mentioned in our product description. Reese is working on an application that will be compatible, it should be available soon.

I have purchased items through Etrailer and have always had good service and found their selection to be excellent. In this case they were the only company that I found that stocked this adaptor. The first adaptor they sent would not fit the hitch receiver. The hitch receiver opening on my Super Titan 3 inch hitch is exactly that, 3 inch. The hitch adaptor outside dimension was 3 & 1/16th inch. Etrailer sent a replacement hitch adaptor without any hesitation or question. Thank you etrailer for having good customer service. That is what brings customers back. Unfortunately the second adaptor would not fit. Its outside dimensions were exactly 3 inch. I do not know the tolerances on the Super Titan 3 inch so it may be on the negative side as well. Rather than trying to establish what the dimensions of both the hitch socket, adaptor and fit clearance should be and having no alternative supplier, I took a grinder to the adaptor and fitted it to the hitch. Not much grinding was required and the resultant change in dimensions does not degrade the suitability of the adaptor for the intended use. The adaptor fit the hitch receiver nicely but the hitch pin would not fit. I looked at the hitch adaptor and found that the hitch pin holes in the 3 inch tube and the smaller tube that is welded inside it to create the adaptor must have been drilled before the two pieces were welded together. The holes were offset when they were welded together. That had to be corrected without overbearing the fit which was possible but a pain. Thankfully I have access to the tools needed to accomplish this but do not believe that most people would. At this point I will say that I have a number of Reese products and never had a problem with anything other than this adaptor. In summary, etrailer has items that I could not find elsewhere and great customer service. Reese needs to review the design of this adaptor and improve the quality. If etrailer had another adaptor supplier I would have returned the second item and purchased it. Unfortunately it appears the Reese is the only game in town unless you have the adaptor fabricated yourself. I suggest that etrailer discontinue sale of this item pending Reese verifying they have corrected the design and improve the quality of the product.

I'm highly impressed, it works so well.



- 38735
by:

When I attempted to put the locking pin into the receiver it would not fully go through both sides of the receiver. I found one side of the welded inner sleeve was not aligned with the outer receiver and the outer receiver also had a metal lip. I was able to grind both pieces and the locking pin fit snugly and fully engaged the receiver. Apparently, the piece was not fully checked with a pin after the welding.

Looked all over for this adapter. Just bought a 2017 Ford F-250 with a 3" hitch. All my inserts are 2" and Ford doesn't supply the adapters anymore. The weatherTech mud flaps are another issue. The trim piece on the fender well won't allow the mud flaps to be installed.

by:

Quality heavy duty hitch and etrailer is great to work with.

Purchased this item to use on my Ford F350 with an 3" hitch. I needed an adapter to convert the hitch size to 2" so I could install my bike rack on the hitch. This item is still working wonderfully.

Was able to bundle together several towing system components to ensure I had a complete and integrated system, thanks etrailer for making it easy snd fast!

by:

This is a great reducer for the new 2017 Ford F250/350 trucks. The factory model has a loose and sloppy fit. The Reese reducers is a much more heavy duty model with a snug fit. I would highly recommend it if you want to use a 2 inch hitch on your new Ford.



- 38735
by:

I have to say how great the sales department is. When I placed the order I choose standard shipping 5-7 days I got a email from George J telling me he processed my order and it shipped he also upgraded the shipping to express 2-3 day at no additional cost, I replied WOW that's great! Also on the product, this 3x2 reducer is not a common part and etrailer was the only place that carried it and had it on stock to fit my motor home hitch. Thanks etrailer for great customer service.

Good fit for my 2019 Ford F450

Good construction, but it made my hitch stick out to far and the back up warning beeper was constantly going off every time a put the truck in reverse. Stopped using it for that reason



- 38735
by:

I looked at all outlets in my town and could not find this, even camping world. I ordered this from etraler and had it in 2 days, I should have done that in the first place. In the future I will start at etrailer.com first for all my RV needs.



- 38735
by:

As expected from etrailer, the product was delivered quickly and performs well.



- 38735
by:

Good service and prompt delivery. Item's fastening pin did not quite fit the holes in the receiver; but easily resolved with only a small amount of filing to make the parts align properly. Perhaps 1/64" offset. Could be either this product or the coach's received. Representative was very helpful in product selection.

Adapter feels heavy, looks well made.

Great product, could not find item else where



- 38735
by:

Three days after I ordered the hitches they showed up at my door. We bought a new F-350 and needed some new hitch assemblies for the 3" receiver. Everything was well packaged and so well made we figure these hitches will last a lifetime and then some. The height adjustable Pintle Hitch is stronger than the truck and and the stout B&W Tow & Stow three ball is an excellent design. No disappointments here. etrailer is a one stop shop for our towing and trailer needs.

  • Is It Safe To Tow and What Is Weight Capacity When Using Super Titan Receiver Adapter # 38735
    Yes, it is safe to tow with the Super Titan Receiver Adapter, part # 38735. This reducer will reduce the 3 Inch opening on your hitch to a 2 Inch opening. I contacted our representative at Reese, and he in informed me that the Super Titan Receiver Adapter, part # 38735, will not cut down the weight or the tongue weight capacity of your hitch. Part # 38735 does not extend out far enough to reduce the weight capacity, as would be the case with a hitch extender. He said, that as long as...

  • Inner Dimensions of the Reese Super Titan Extension part # 38735
    The inner dimensions of the Reese Super Titan Extension part # 38735 that you referenced is 2 inch by 2 inch width and height and the overall length is 9-1/2 inches. It's specifically designed to work with the Super Titan trailer hitches from Reese.

  • Can the Super Titan Receiver Adapter # 38735 be used with Weight Distribution
    Yes, as long as you don't exceed the weight capacity of the Super Titan Receiver Adapter # 38735 you can use it with a weight distribution system. The # 38735 has a 12,000 lbs total trailer weight capacity and a 1,200 lb tongue weight capacity.

  • 3 Inch to 2 Inch Reducer to Use Weight Distribution with 3 Inch Receiver on a Ford F-250
    The Buyers Products adapter # 337RTA302 is the only one that goes from a 3 inch hitch down to a 2 inch and works with your F-250. When using the adapter though the hitch is limited to 1,200 pounds tongue weight and 12,000 pounds gross trailer weight. I have linked a video review of this adapter for you. I also recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Lock for 3 inch hitches # 63259. It is a 5/8 inch diameter pin for the large 3 inch hitches.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Extension for 3 Inch Receiver
    We do not have a 3 inch extension that is that specific length. The adapter I recommend is the Reducer Sleeve for Super Titan Hitch Receivers - 3" to 2" # 38735. The adapter is 9-1/2 inches long but it is 4 inches from pin hole to pin hole.

  • Hitch Sleeve for 2021 Ford F-350 to Convert 3 Inch Hitch to 2 Inches with Correct Hitch Pin Size
    Reese # 38735 is the correct part to convert your 3 inch hitch on your 2021 Ford F-350 to a 2 inch hitch with a 5/8 inch hitch pin. You do want to keep in mind the towing capacity with this sleeve is 12,000 pounds and the tongue weight rating is 1,200 pounds.

  • Trailer Hitch Extender Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Suburban z71
    What you need is an extender instead of an adapter. The Super Titan Receiver Adapter, # 38735, is an adapter that takes a 3 inch trailer hitch receiver opening and reduces it down to a 2 inch opening. Unless you have a 3 inch receiver opening on your 2003 Chevy Suburban, the 38735 will not work. I have included a link to the available hitch extenders below. The shortest extender we carry for 2 inch receivers is the 7 inch Brophy # HE06 and will fit into a 2 inch receiver and has a 2 inch...

  • Recommended 2-1/2" to 2" Reducer Sleeve for 2019 Ford F-250
    The hitch reducer sleeve I strongly recommend for the 2-1/2" hitch on your 2019 Ford F-250 is the B&W Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve # BWRHXA2182 because it has two sets of pin holes to allow for a more custom fit on your Ford hitch. If your F-250 has a Ford factory hitch or Draw-Tite hitch, insert the reducer sleeve so the pinched ends face the sides; if you have a Curt aftermarket hitch, insert the sleeve so that the ends are positioned on the top and bottom of your receiver. That sleeve...

  • Is There A 3 Inch Hitch Receiver To 2 Inch Receiver Sleeve Reducer Available?
    Absolutely. For your 3 inch receiver, I recommend the Reese Super Titan Receiver Adapter - 3" to 2" Reducer Sleeve # 38735. This will allow you to use your Tow Bar without issue. You may need the Super Titan Trailer Hitch Pin and Clip for 3" Receivers # 58388, this is a 3/4 inch diameter pin. If you want a locking pin to secure your adapter, I recommend the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock for 2", 2-1/2", and 3" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span # WS05.

  • Adapter to Go From 3 Inch Hitch of 2017 Ford F-250 to 2 inch HItch
    If the truck you buy does have a 3 inch hitch installed on it the Super Titan Adapter Part # 38735 would be the correct adapter as it will slide into the hitch and provide you with a 2 inch hitch. A standard hitch pin that you would have for the 3 inch hitch would be all you need to secure the adapter like part # 58388. Then for a pin for the 2 inch hitch you would want the part # PC3.

  • Adapter to Fit 3 inch Hitch of 2017 Ford F-350 and Provide 2 inch Hitch
    The correct adapter for the 3 inch hitch on your 2017 Ford F-350 down to a 2 inch hitch is the Buyers Products adapter part # 337RTA302 as it has the correct diameter for the hitch pin of 5/8 inch. Everything else we offer does not match this size.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Adapter for 3 Inch Hitch Receiver Opening
    To convert a 3 inch receiver opening to a 2 inch receiver accessory you will need a hitch adapter. If you are just using a ball mount I recommend the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeves - 3" to 2-1/2" or 2" # C45408. If you are going to be using an anti-rattle device like you'd want on a ball mount I recommend instead using the Reducer Sleeve for Super Titan Hitch Receivers - 3" to 2" # 38735. This will allow you to use an anti-rattle lock on the 3 inch receiver and then use the anti-rattle...

  • Correct 3" to 2" Hitch Reducer for Ford OEM 3" Hitch
    I do have an option for you but the Reducer Sleeve for Super Titan Hitch Receivers part # 38735 does not work with any of the Ford OEM 3" Hitches. Instead, I recommend the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter part # 337RTA302 which is confirmed to fit.

  • Looking for 3 Inch to 2 Inch Hitch Receiver Reducer With 3/4 Inch Hitch Pin Hole
    I have a solution that would work for you unless your hitch is the OEM Ford 3 inch receiver. The # 38735 Reese Reducer sleeve uses a 3/4 inch hitch pin like # 58388, but the Ford OEM 3 inch receiver uses a more rounded radius on the inside corners of the receiver tube, so the # 38735 reducer wouldn't be a good choice with a Ford OEM receiver. If you have the Ford hitch, I'd use the # 337RTA302 Buyers Products reducer you'd looked at and enlarge the hitch pin holes to 3/4 using a well-lubricated...

  • Can 3" to 2-1/2" and 2-1/2" to 2" Reducer Be Used with Equalizer Weight Distribution System
    The best option to use an Equalizer Weight Distribution System with a 3" trailer hitch would be to upgrade to a 2-1/2" shank, the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank part # EQ90-02-4800 and then you can use a 3" to 2-1/2" reducer sleeve. I don't recommend using multiple sleeves, this would create too much slop and play in the system.

  • Recommended Hitch Receiver Reducer for 2017 Ford F-250 with 3 Inch Hitch to Blue Ox Sway Pro System
    For the traditional Blue Ox Sway Pro, you will need the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeves - 3" to 2-1/2" or 2" # C45408 to reduce a 3 inch receiver down to 2 inches. This is not rated for a specific weight rating because it does not protrude from the hitch opening. Another option is to use the Buyers products # 337RTA302 which has one less moving part and are rated for tongue weights up to 1,200 lbs.

  • Availability of 3 Receiver to 2 Weight Distribution Shank Adapter with Anti-Rattle
    Since you want to avoid an adapter that uses 2 sleeves to get you from your 3" receiver down to the 2" shank size of your weight distribution (WD) system you can potentially use either the 12K Reese Titan # 38735 or the 12K Buyers Products # 337RTA302. The Reese Titan is not compatible with Ford OEM 3" receivers though so if that's what you have then you can't go with this product. It's only designed to work with the Reese Super Titan hitches. One thing to note is that neither of these...

    I do have a way for you to use your Avail tow bar with a 3 inch hitch receiver, however, there are no replacement shanks that fit a 3 inch hitch receiver. All you need to use a tow bar that fits a 2 inch hitch receiver in a 3 inch hitch receiver is use the Super Titan Receiver Adapter # 38735.

The Reese's pin hole is too large to match your truck's receiver. There are also other options like the B&W Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve - 3" to 2-1/2" # BWRHXA2183 and the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeves - 3" to 2-1/2" or 2" # C45408.

  • Recommended Reducer Sleeve and Anti-Rattle Pin for 2017 F-250 With 3 Inch Receiver
    The Buyer's Products Adapter # 337RTA302 is a much better option than using multiple sleeves. The XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2-1/2" Hitches # SHP2040-XL has a 3.54 inch pin span that will work if the outer edges of your receiver don't exceed that. The 3 inch pins like # WS05 only have that 3-1/2 inch span, so it should work and give you the anti-rattle stabilization as well but you may need to get a longer spring for easy installation.
