I spoke with my engineering contact at Stealth hitches, who doesn't have a problem with using a rise adapter like the Roadmaster # RM-076 along with their # 391TES317 hitch.

However, be aware of the following facts. Because the adapter moves the load further away from the receiver tube, using it will lower the hitch tongue weight capacity from 300 lbs by 50% to 150 lbs. This means that the weight of the bikes plus the rack they're loaded upon cannot exceed 150 lbs. Also, you may get more wobble from the bike rack because you've added an additional piece between the hitch receiver and the hitch accessory which is a bike rack in this case. Under no circumstances should the adapter be used for towing.
