The tongue weight on the Roadmaster hitch is to low, a drop hitch would be better, I have a 6 inch drop hitch with a 7500lb rating with 750lb tonged.


OPer you will just have to measure and buy a drop hitch, its ok to have the trailer tilted up just a tad.

Use a Blue OX 8" drop to tow my Jeep. Works very well, but as mentioned, keep an eye on the coach's receiver for stress cracks or damage.

I would be careful in using multiple adapters, as it is my understanding that each extension could reduce your towing capacity.
