Review of the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Extender


Sometimes some of the accessories get a little too close to our vehicle. That's why etrailer designed this seven inch extension for your inch and a quarter hitch. This is gonna install just like any other accessory. We just put it in there. We then line up the hitch pin hole. And once it's lined up, we can put our hitch pin through.

And this hitch pin does not come with it, so you will need to grab one separately if you don't already have one. Now, you can just take your inch and a quarter accessory and install it just like you did before with your hitch. But now, we're just putting it on the extension. And if you do have an anti-rattle bolt like we do on the Hitching Post Pro, it will still fit and thread in just fine. And now this solves our problem.

Now I have plenty of room to go in between my accessory and the trunk, so I can use my vehicle exactly how I did before when this was installed, but just a simple seven inch extension does make a big difference. Some dimensions for you. The distance between the center of each of these holes is seven inches. Then on the hitch receiver side, we have an inch and a half from here to the end. And then over here, we have two inches from the center to the end of our accessory side of the extender.

This is gonna give us an overall length of 10 1/2 inches. One thing to note, whenever we have this in here, we do not want to use this for any towing applications, just because it is gonna cut our hitch capacity in half. So also keep note of that as well to make sure we're not overloading our hitch or our accessory. The accessory itself is going to have a 350 pound gross tongue rating. All the other options that you see on our site are not gonna be for towing and also are gonna cut your capacity in half.

So it's not just the etrailer extender, it's all of them on the site. I think the main thing with this is just getting the right amount of length, and I think seven inches is pretty much perfect for either clearance for your spare tire or just to gain a little bit more access to the back of your vehicle. And that's pretty much it for a look at the etrailer inch and a quarter seven inch hitch extender..
