Hitch Adapter to Reduce a 2 Inch Trailer Receiver Opening


I have a 2inch trailer opening I need a adapter for 1 inch3/8


Expert Reply:

We carry a large selection of hitch adapters that will fit the 2 inch opening of your trailer hitch. Unfortunately, none will reduce to an 1-3/8 inches.

Trailer receiver openings typically are as followed, 1-1/4, 2, 2-1/2, and on some new Ford models 3 inches.

You might want to double check the measurement of the hitch accessory shank that you want to mount in your hitch. If it is an 2 inch hitch , then a hitch reducer like # HT02 will allow you to mount a 1-1/4 hitch accessory in your 2 inch hitch.

One thing to keep in mind. When using reduces and adapters, you will drop your hitch's tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. So, if your hitch has a 500 lbs tongue weight, then using an adapter or reducer will drop your TW to 250 lbs.
