I also ordered 1.25" to 2" Towing Hitch Rise or Drop Extension Adapter. That may make it worse since it extends it before the 3.5" rise.

Once I get it all and installed I will let you know how it works.

I also bought this cover.

Can't wait to see how you get it all working. I ordered the Dolly on Monday...it's getting delivered tomorrow...( 3 days later). Wow are they efficient! I'll have to see which arrangement you choose for your Prius and 1UP USA bike rack....and order more gizmos. Please keep posting on your findings! Thanks!!!

The Prius' hitch arrived today, it will probably be this weekend before I get around to the install.

One thing to note with my rig's hitch setup using a CURT 45810 Ball Mount there is not enough room to put the EZE Tow on the hitch while the 1UP USA bike rack is already on. So the bike and rack goes on last and off first.

I also just got a CURT 45794 2" Raised Receiver Adapter hoping that will allow the bike rack to go on first.

I finally got mine put together and loaded my little toad. (see the post Acme Tow Dolly setup). I have a Reese Dual Hitch adapter and I got the drop set up from Harbor Freight. I had a Curt Dual hitch when I picked it up from Acme and it was too high as it only had a 2' drop. My setup makes the dolly almost level but the tongue has a slight slant. My spare is in the accessory tube and I have a front receiver hitch that I have an Allen 2" bike rack that carries my bike and my wife's trike. This front receiver will also be used to launch a boat (when I finally get one) and keep my rear wheels dry on the boat ramp so I do not get stranded,

I was lucky to get a 'blemished' dolly and got a free spare with it. I cannot see the blemish maybe it has a paint run?

Anyone have the valve stems changed out to metal for running a TST TPMS??

I'm hoping the tire place doesn't lose my balancing beads....

Can't tell how much extension you have on your motor home. The hitch height looks really low. Acme recommends around 14". Even at 14" I had to be very careful going in and out of parking lots to reduce the times the setup would drag across the concrete or black top.

Where are you measuring the 14" to? It should be to the base of the coupler or base of the ball. Yours looks low to me.

Usually the bottom of the ball or flat spot on the hitch

Richard (owner of Acme) clearified this in a post somewhere here...
The measure was from the ground to the bottom of the Dolly's coupler at the ball socket.

Safe travels

That's what I meant, I also read that post from Richard.

My mistake, I have not seen yours. I thought I was responding to seb1899 with his pictures above.
