How To Carry 1-1/4 Receiver Accessory with Dual Hitch Adapter


I would like to know if your website has a Specific hitch receiver product. I am looking for a ball mount hitch 2in receiver with an attached 1.25 accessory hitch

I have a solution for you, but to my knowledge there is not such a product available. There are dual receiver adapters that have the same size receivers on both ends, but I can't say that I've ever seen one with both a 1-1/4" and 2" receiver slot.

Instead, you could use something like the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver for Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers - 7,500 lbs # D210 and pair it with the Brophy Hitch Reducer # HT02 to carry a 1-1/4" accessory on the top. You will have a 750-lbs total tongue weight capacity with the trailer and accessory, so it may not be the best solution if you're towing a heavier trailer.

If you're towing something heavy, I recommend using the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop/Rise - 10K # 325-GH-313 with the Brophy HT02 mentioned above. This is a great solution because of the multiple stacked receivers that will allow you to easily carry a bike rack and tow at the same time.

The best solution for this would be to either find out if your bike rack with a 1-1/4" receiver shank has a sleeve adapter available, or get a bike rack that is compatible with 2" receivers. If you can let me know what bike rack you've got, I'm happy to see if there is an available sleeve adapter- or just let me know how many bikes or the type of accessory with 1-1/4" shank you're trying to carry and I can work to find a suitable alternative.
