  • Length (pin hole to pin hole): 10-3/8"

Note: Designed for flat towing only. Do not use to tow a trailer.


Many tow systems require some sort of hitch accessory to either raise or lower your tow bar so that it sits level. To determine if your setup needs an adapter, hook the tow bar up to your RV and towed car and measure to see how close to level it is. The "safe zone" for a motor-home-mounted tow bar ranges from 3 inches above level to 3 inches 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.

Shawnee is excellent to work with… the best I’ve experienced in a long time. She helped me set up my motorcoach and tow vehicle for flat towing. Everything was spot on. Make etrailer your one stop shop and ask for Shawnee if you are in a bind.




by:

very heavy duty unit. fit well.. I did add a hitch anti rattle unit to this application.




by:

I drilled another pin hole through it but it's holding up the tongue wait like a champ.




by:

Ordering was easy and my order arrived sooner than expected. What else needs to be said, great company to do business with !




by:

Started checking the rise/drop needed behind my MH after putting etrailer's Blue Ox baseplate on my Dodge Ram P/U. Turned out to be a 7" rise was needed and I needed the 10000 pound rise. Checked prices and etrailer matched the lowest price I found. This was my 6th order from etrailer. Great people to work with.

All has been fine with the adapter.

these people are great, needed this hitch quick they got it to me in 2 days great to deal with.




by:

As always, ETrailer had what I order very quick. ETrailer prices are as good as anyone else. Thanks for the great service.




by:

Excellent service once again.




by:

Great product delivered as scheduled. I have purchased before from etrailer and when the delivery was going to be delayed because of the manufacturer, I was contacted immediately and given a phone contact to call during a weekend. Other retailers only give you an email and a two day wait for a response. Etrailer is a great company to purchase from.




by:

I ordered a 7” drop down hitch to fit my RV 2” receiver. It fit perfectly and works terrific.




by:

Arrive very quickly, nice to see a company have inventory and ship out the order same day.

The Blue Ox drop down receiver is stout, very please with the product, heavy welding at all joints.





by:

Great company to deal with!

Good product and great service.

Quality part. Great service. Best price I found.

Product was well-packaged and clearly labeled.

  • Recommended Raised Trailer Hitch Adapter to Mount Salt Spreader
    Check out the Blue Ox Blue Ox High-Low Adapter, part # BX88241. This adapter has a 7" Rise and is 12" Long. The tongue weight capacity for part # BX88241 is 10 percent of the towing capacity. For this adapter, the tongue weight capacity would be 1,000 lbs. High-low adapters were designed for flat towing , but Blue Ox said it could support your 600 lb rock salt spreader assuming the trailer hitch on your vehicle can support that much tongue weight as well. The best option would be to mount...

  • Hitch Adapter for 7-Inch Height Difference Between Motorhome Receiver and Base Plates
    To prevent the tow bar from binding, the tow bar needs to be within 3 inches +/- of level. Since there's a 7 inch height difference between the RV receiver and the height of the base plates, the Blue Ox # BX88241 High/Low adapter you looked at would be absolutely perfect. It would put your towbar right at level, which is exactly what you want.

  • 7 inch Rise/Drop High Low Adapter for Flat Towing a Jeep Wrangler
    You are correct. When you are flat towing a vehicle you want the tow bar to sit as level as possible between the towed vehicle and the tow vehicle. To accomplish this you will need to get the appropriate rise/drop high-low adapter. It sounds like you either need a 7 inch rise adapter or possibly a 25 inch rise adapter (we don't offer one that big). For an adapter that would do 7 inches of rise or drop you would want the Blue Ox Adapter part # BX88241.

  • Why Does Blue Ox 7" High-Low Adapter BX88241 Have Bolts In It?
    The Blue Ox High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7" Rise/Drop - 12" Long # BX88241 you were looking at is actually welded together and has additional side plates bolted on for extra strength. The reason for this is the addition of the side plates is what gives this adapter its 10000lb rating, where the # BX88130 you mentioned is only welded with one set of side plates and has a 5000lb rating. The bolts used on the # BX88241 are grade 8 hardware for plenty of additional strength. Between...

  • Why Does Blue Ox High Low Adapter BX88235 Use Bolts Instead of Welds
    There's no functional reason the Blue Ox High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars # BX88235 uses bolt instead of welds that you would notice. By that I mean there isn't something different you can do with it based on the bolts like swap to a different drop by unbolting it . They also have a version that has a 7 inch drop with part # BX88241 which uses the same shank but has a lower drop so this allows a portion of this to be modular. This style has twice the weight capacity as the fully welded options...

  • Base Plate Adapter to Flat Tow Jeep Wrangler JKU with Smittybuild Gen2 XRC Bumper
    For your JKU with the Smittybuilt Gen2 XRC bumper you will want the Blue Ox Base Plate Adapter Brackets for Smittybuilt XRC Atlas Bumpers # BX88357. This will allow you the movement you mentioned and is compatible with your Avail Towbar # BX7420. For your high-low adapter, the Blue Ox High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7" Rise/Drop - 12" Long # BX88241 will meet your needs. As long as you are within 3 inches of level (whether up or down) you will be in the safe range. I've...

  • High/Low Adapter with 6 Inch Rise to Flat Tow a 3,800 Pound Car Behind an RV
    The Blue Ox High/Low adapter # BX88241 has a few more components to it than the Roadmaster version, # RM-076, and a higher capacity so it is overbuilt. The Roadmaster # RM-076 will still work great for you. It is still rated higher than your toad (6,000 pounds) and provides the 6 inch rise that you need.

  • What is the Tongue Weight of the Blue Ox High Low Adapter BX88241
    The Blue Ox High-Low Adapter # BX88241 is only designed for flat towing applications where there is no tongue weight since there's not downward pressure from a trailer tongue. If you need a dual hitch adapter for towing and carrying a hitch mounted accessory, your best bet would be something like the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210. This is rated for 750-lbs tongue weight towing and up to 500-lbs for carrying an accessory. I've linked a video of this adapter, but if you need something...

  • Weight Capacity of Blue Ox 12 Inch and 14 Inch Shanks
    Are you looking at the Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution shanks, like part # BXW4002? If so, Blue Ox does not give these shanks a specific class rating. All of their shanks fit 2 inch trailer hitches and have a maximum towing capacity of 15,000 lbs and a maximum tongue weight capacity of 1,500 lbs. If you are looking at the 12 inch Blue Ox High-Low adapter, like part # BX88241 or # BX88235, they have a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 lbs. The high-low adapters are not given a tongue...

  • High Low Adapter for Flat Towing 2019 Honda Civic SI that Needs 7 inches of Drop
    We have an adapter that fits your needs exactly with the Blue Ox part # BX88241. This was designed for flat towing applications like yours where 7 inches of drop is needed to allow the tow bar to set as level as possible. This will not reduce the weight capacity of your trailer hitch in any way either. I also attached a help article link that covers picking out the correct high/low adapter as well.

  • Option to Raise Cargo Carrier on Rear of 2006 Hyundai Tucson For Better Ground Clearance
    Blue Ox offers the # BX88235 adapter which would give your 3 inches of rise, and would allow you to retain the 500 lb capacity of your cargo carrier, but it shouldn't be used for towing a trailer. The # BX88241 offers 7 inches of rise, and also the capacity of the adapter mentioned above. The Roadmaster adapter you referenced wouldn't allow you to use the full capacity of your cargo carrier.

  • Does Blue Ox Alpha 2 Tow Bar Come With Safety Cables for Towing 2013 Mini Cooper
    The Blue Ox Alpha 2 Tow Bar # BX7380 you asked about does indeed come with the safety cables included, so they are not something that you would need to purchase separately. This is a really good option for flat towing your 2013 Mini Cooper as it has long arms to allow excellent maneuvering. The tow bar is one of the parts needed in order to flat tow your '13 Mini, and is compatible with Blue Ox base plates; if you don't have the rest of the parts needed for your flat tow set up, I'll...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount With Large Drop For 2007 Ford Van
    For your application, I recommend an adjustable ball mount with a large drop like the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 15" Drop - 10K # 325-GH-317. The Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 17-1/2" Drop # 325-GH-328 is the deepest drop we have available. The hi-low adapter Blue Ox High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 7" Rise/Drop - 12" Long, # BX88241, is for flat towing use only. It cannot be used to pull a trailer.

  • Pin Hole to Pin Hole Dimension on RoadMaster High/Low Receiver
    The pin hole to pin hole distance of the # RM-048-4 is 9-5/8". The Blue Ox # BX88241 has a pin hole to pin hole length of 12 inches, but it also has a rise/drop of 7 inches. This will be crucial to picking out the right adapter for your RV, see attached Help Article. Two adapters that are similar to the Roadmaster one you were looking at are the Blue Ox # BX88235, with the length from center of pin hole to center of pin hole is 10-1/8" and the Roadmaster # RM-076 has a pin hole to pin...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier For Front Hitch On 2012 Chevrolet Suburban 1500
    The first thing you will want to do is check with your owners manual or with your dealership to see what the tongue weight capacity if for the hitch on the front of your 2012 Suburban. If you choose an adapter in your hitch you need to note that using an adapter will reduce the hitch carrying capacity by 50 percent. Part # BX88241, part # BX88131, part # RM-048-8, and part # RM-048-10 are all designed to be used for flat-towing only and are not designed to be installed in a front hitch...

  • Taller Weight Distribution Shanks w/ 9 Hole and 11 Hole Adjustments
    It sounds like what you are saying is that when you upgraded to the bigger 2019 Ram 2500 that your receiver was too high on the taller truck and now when you connect to your 2018 Keystone Cougar Trailer the coupler is too low. It sounds like you need a taller shank for your Blue Ox Weight distribution system. I have a couple options for you depending on how low you need to go. The Blue Ox Track Pro Weight Distribution Shank for 2" Hitches item # BLU86FR has an 11 hole adjustment. The Blue...

  • Availability of Hi-Low Adapter to Lower Receiver Height of Motorhome
    If you're needing to lower the receiver for a tow bar that you're using to flat tow a vehicle, Roadmaster offers several High-Low Hitch Adapters that would get your towbar within the recommended 3 inches of level. For a 10 inch drop use part # RM-048-10. For an 8 inch drop use # RM-048-8, for a 6 inch drop use # RM-048-6, for a 2 inch drop use # RM-048-4 and for a 2 inch drop use # RM-072-2. These adapters shouldn't be used for towing a trailer. For a bike rack or a cargo carrier, Blue...

  • High-Low Adapter Needed for Flat Towing a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara
    Since you can use different brand high-low adapters with any tow bar we actually have flat towing high-low adapters that will work for your situation. Unfortunately none of our dual adapters have the weight capacity to accomplish this. Attached is a link to our selection of high-low adapters that you can filter through. These range from a 2" rise/drop # RM-072-2 all the way to a 10-1/4" rise/drop # RM-048-10. If you're looking for an option with about a 7" drop like what the Malone # RM-048-10...
