Multipurpose 2-Inch Ball Mount to Allow Both Trailer Towing and Hitch-Mount Accessory Use


Is there a dual hitch receiver that would allow me to use a bike rack on top AND have the flexibility to either flat toe OR pull a trailer approx 4000 lb? I’m driving a Navio RV that sits on a MB Sprinter Chasis 3500..


Expert Reply:

For your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based RV we do not offer an actual trailer hitch receiver with dual openings, such as # TLC1204 from TorkLift. For the 2018 Sprinter 3500 chassis, as an example, we do offer single receiver hitches shown on the linked page. Their fits vary depending on wheelbase and bumper type.

We DO have hitch adapters like Roadmaster # RM-077-6 that allows both flat towing with a tow bar and towing with a tow dolly while using a hitch-mount accessory like a bike rack or cargo carrier. However, this adapter cannot be used to tow a trailer.

For towing a trailer AND using a hitch bike rack you CAN use the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210. This has 750-lbs ball mount capacity for the trailer tongue weight and 500-lbs for the receiver for the bike rack. When mounting an accessory in this receiver, your hitch's tongue weight capacity will be reduced by 50 percent.
