Recommended Hitch Extender Rated For 600lb Tongue Weight


Hi, I have a predicament. I have a dual motorcycle rack to put on my class 4 tow hitch, but I need to extend it out at least 8inch in order for the motorcycle handle bars to fit. Is there any extender that would have a 600lb tongue weight?


Expert Reply:

I have an extension that meets your criteria. The Blue Ox Hitch Extender for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 6-3/4" or 8-3/4" Extension # BX88265. This has a 1000 lb tongue weight capacity and will give you 8-3/4 inches to accommodate your handle bars. An adapter like this will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50%, so to use an extension, you will need a tongue weight rating on your hitch itself to be 1200 lbs for a 600 lb capacity you listed. This is the highest rated tongue weight rating we have in an extension.
