Dual Trailer Receiver

We have a class A 2002 Monaco Windsor. The tow hitch receiver has a 10,000 capacity. I just got a very quick look at a hitch system that had two receivers., upper and lower. The coach I saw had the toad tow bar mounted on the lower receiver and a bike rack on the upper receiver.

It was just a very short look see, as the coach was pulling out of the RV park we are in. Does anyone know anything about this system? We would love to carry our bikes in that manner. Is this a system that mounts in the existing receiver? Brand? Custom made?

Thanks in advance for any information you have!!

Roadmaster, says their dual mount, is for flat tow only, no trailers.

I believe this is what you need/want:


OR:


Google "dual tow hitch receiver adapter" for other designs, (and for sources).

I use one that has the ball on the lower and the receiver on the upper. It did not originally have enough clearance for the surge brake mechanism on my tow dolly. I tried the one shown but it did not have enough clearance either. I finally took the ball one to a welder and had him extend it higher to give the needed clearance. I set it up for a cargo rack but have decided to put the bike rack there and put the cargo in the toad.

So, they work with limitations. The one i am using with the built in ball mount keeps the ball closer to the receiver than the double receiver, reducing the load on the tail of the rig.

Just have another receiver welded to your OEM hitch. Works well, no heavy hitch to haul around or extension that will drag. This was on my Monaco Diplomat.
