Recommended Dual Purpose Receiver Tube Adapter For Towing And A Bike Rack


Hi, Im looking for an adapter that will fit my 2inch class III hitch which will still allow me to tow my camper but also allow for a 1 1/4inch bike rack to be used as well. Thanks! Im looking to purchase a used Thule Expressway 995 rack.

We have a dual hitch receiver that may be just what you are looking for. It is the Malone Dual Hitch Extender, part # MPG544. This adapter can be used in the hitch receiver on your truck and it has two 2 inch receivers. The bottom receiver can be used for towing and the top receiver can be used for accessories like a bike rack you mentioned.

Since the top receiver is a 2 inch also, you will need to use a hitch reducer like part # HT02. This reducer measures 7 inches and moves the hitch pin hole 3 inches. This reducer will not reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch.
