Just added this to my bike rack. It is extremely solid. No rattle or shake at all.


Bought this extension for use on my front Curt receiver hitch on my 2010 Ford Raptor (hitch is under the bumper). I looked at a few extensions in person before settling on this one. I figured if I really needed to use it with my winch, I didn't want to skimp on the extension. Recently I did have to use my winch and am glad I bought this unit. This extension is extremely heavy duty and worth the money if you need a heavy duty extension.

Still working fine.
Glenn O - 06/06/2021


Perfect for us to extend from a very far back hitch on our LTV. This was very sturdy and allowed us to use our Swagman bike rack. The customer service was awesome. We didn’t know we were going to need before a very big trip and etrailer rushed it to us. Can’t say enough about their staff. Very pleased.


The safety hole to put the clip in to retain our bike rack was slightly off--about 1/4"--so we had to re-drill it. Then everything worked great.


The product is exactly as advertised; high quality and well constructed. More importantly was etrailer's service. My order was lost during delivery by the delivery service and etrailer shipped a replacement right away. I have purchased from etrailer in the past and they always follow up and thank you for your business. That means a lot. Thank you etrailer for your good customer service.

I flat tow my Wranglar behind my Coachman Freelander. This extension hitch works perfect to extend the Motorhome hitch out from under the bumper. I’ve used it many times. Thanks etrailer.
Kelly G - 10/25/2020


The hitch extender was almost exactly what I wanted. After I received the hitch, I also received an email about the product and a product rating which included a short video on the Anti-Rattle Hitch. The video disclosed that I should not tow a travel trailer with this product. I then contacted Etrailer Customer Service. Andrew L. was my service tech and he was extremely helpful.


10,000 lb rating provides extra since of safety


I have a 60" x 20" x 20" cargo basket carrier that I'm intending on using on my Class B+ Motor Home. With the 2" hitch on the coach is slightly recessed, this makes the basket carrier is too close that I'm unable to open it up. This extender will be the fix.
Impressed with the construction of this. The half that slides into existing 2" hitch is solid square stock (not tube steel)... Heavy Duty!
Was also very pleased with etrailers customer service / shipping. They upgraded me from standard to 2 day priority.
Thanks etrailer (and George D)

George,Thank you for your review.Just a reminder that hitch extenders such as part #RM-071-1075 do cut your tongue weight capacity by 50. That is including the weight of the carrier itself. I have attached a link for information on extenders and adapters.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 02/01/2018


This receiver extension is perfect for my need. Recently purchased new E-Bikes and new bike rack. My installation excitement fell when the rack contacted the spare tire of our Jeep while raising to folded position and couldn't latch.
Found the right size and placed the order. "George" responded quickly to say the order was shipping that day! Then it was delivered one full day earlier than promised.
Extremely happy with the fit and quality and the Anti Rattle pin is great.
Thank you,

Thanks for the reply Mark C. I did want to let you know that using hitch extenders like this one will reduce the hitchs overall capacity by 50 percent. This is something to keep in mind especially considering your new e-bike. Please make sure that the hitch, bike rack and all other components are not exceeding the reduced tongue weight when using the hitch extender.
-- Etrailer Expert Rachael H - 02/20/2018


Works great for side-to-side
stabilization. If you want more security the hole in the bolt is large enough to put a small lock thru.

For up/down stabilization I added the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch and now all directions are very stable.

Corner fillets in the receiver section are larger than other extenders or receivers so it may be a tighter fit than you are expecting.


Works great...


We recently purchased a Road Master Spare Tire Carrier for our motorhome and found that it was just a couple inches too close to the rear hatch to allow us to open it to check fluids. Fount this item online and searched for a good deal with speedy delivery. eTrailer came through for us. Installation was very easy just as long as you have the right size tools. The item itself is very well made and matches the rest of the Road Master products. If you are looking to extend a hitch, you need to make sure your extension is as strong as the main hitch, you do not want to reduce your load capacity by using an under-sized extension. I can recommend both eTrailer and Road Master for this product without reservations.


etrailer had just what I needed. I recently purchased a bike rack for our new electric bikes, but discovered that the handlebar on the "inner" bike hits the back side of our motorhome. I was looking for a non rattle hitch extension, and found it at etrailer.

This is one serious piece of steel!


Very good quality and finish to product except for the install. Retainer bolt threaded into extension fine and pulls it towards the left side of the coach receiver, but there was a slight mismatch in the holes on the right side causing the threads on the bolt to round over.
I'm not going to remove the extension and it is torqued in fine, but if I ever had to it would ruin the threads inside the extension.


High quality. Gives a sense of confidence when towing.


Excellent company! They stayed on top of my order to ensure timely delivery. Tim, George and Carol all stayed in contact with me to make sure I would receive my delivery by Christmas. They responded to every email I had and answered questions. The delivery was received as expected and without damage. I’ll continue doing business with! Great company!!!


The hitch extender works perfectly. I use it on a Jeep Wrangler to extend a vertical kayak carrier past the spare tire on the back of the Jeep. The extender’s bolt tightens securely so there is no swaying or rattling. Excellent product.


The extender works great. I am using it on my front receiver so that my winch would fit properly. The extender has performed well with the use of my winch.


Does exactly what it's supposed to do! I'm using this as part of the mounting system for my 12,000LB winch...I pulled that weight multiple times and this part is STRONG!


Had to get this for my Jeep Rubicon to use a bike rack with the oversized spare tire. Awesome fit.


The threaded bolt is a bad idea. The parties worked great other than the bolt foy stuck and I had to cut and drill the bolt out. Etrailer did send me a replacement part.


Really heavy duty. The anti rattle portion fits and secures it tightly. Using it to extend a front hitch receiver on my 2013 F150 to hold my Warn multi-mount winch.

Be aware that using a hitch extender will lower the vertical load and line pull capacity by half.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 06/27/2018


The extender seems well built and should not have any problems pulling my trailer. I had two hitches to put in it. One did not fit because of the way it was designed. It had a slanted end that cause it to be a half inch to long to let the holes line up. The second one worked just perfectly.


Does what it is supposed to.
feature works perfectly


This is not my first order with you. I am always pleased by your service. My Hitch Extension was here in 3 days. My RV weighs 6000 lbs. I was concerned that it would be flimsy and crack under towing conditions. This extension is solid steel. when I felt the weight, it was very heavy., I checked to see if it was hollow, it was not. I feel confident that it can handle my RV and even more. the quality is excellent. Extremely Heavy Duty. Thank you and I am very happy with my order.

  • Can Roadmaster Hitch Extender be Used for Towing a Trailer or Bike Racks
    You can use hitch extender # RM-071-1075 for things other than flat towing a vehicle. It will fit any 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. However, the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch will be reduced by 50 percent when using an extender. Provided the weight of the items used in the extender are under the reduced tongue weight capacity of the hitch you will be good to go.

    The Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7-3/4" # RM-071-1075 has a maximum tongue weight of 400 pounds. The tongue weight is the downward force that the trailer exerts on the hitch. If you are looking for the gross trailer tow weight of the extender, that is 10,000 pounds. The gross towing weight is the amount of weight that pulls horizontally on the extender. This extender is your best choice because any extender we carry that is longer than 7-3/4 inches greatly...

  • Is There a Way to Increase Distance Between Hitch and Trailer for Tailgate Clearance
    Since hitch extenders cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent a better solution would be a longer ball mount like the # 80232 which is 15-3/4 inches from pin hole to ball hole and would most likely give you the extra clearance you'd need to be able to lower your tailgate when towing and not hit the trailer jack.

  • Recommendation to Gain Clearance for Tailgate with Weight Distribution System Installed
    Using a hitch extender like you mentioned will give you the needed clearance but it will also reduce the weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. This is because of the extra play/movement and instability that adding another component causes. This along with their lower base ratings to begin with (as you mentioned) means that your best option is to just use a longer adjustable shank for your weight distribution system.

  • Longer Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for Better Jack/Tailgate Clearance
    The issue with hitch extenders is that they end up cutting the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent due to the extra length and movement in the hitch. So with that in mind there isn't a hitch extender we can offer that will give you the length you need and not cause issues with weight capacity. Plus none of them have the weight capacity you need either. Best option is a longer adjustable ball mount to get you the length you need like with the Curt Multi Ball Mount...

As another option you can use the Curt Multi-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount for 2" Trailer Hitches part # D900. It measures 15 3/4" from the pin hole to the center of the ball.
