Looking for a "beefy" receiver

We have a 2015 Tiffin Allegro 36LA, towing a 2014 Honda CRV. We recently purchased a Ready Brute Elite towbar/brake system. We also want to incorporate a bike rack. We recently purchased a receiver from Northern Tool (see attached). The Ready Brute Elite installer suggest a more robust receiver. I agreed and purchased a receiver from Curtis. It was too short. When I let them know, they replaced it with one that would supposedly work. It is beefy but will not accommodate the Ready Brute receiver. The new receiver was too short. The Northern Tool receiver works just fine for the Ready Brute Elite and bike rack. I am concerned it is not very heavy duty. I would hate to be on the road and experience a weld break. Any suggestions for a good robust receiver?

Does your CRV have a receiver?

If so why not put your bike rack on the back of the CRV

If your referring to a beefy dual receiver, look at the Roadmaster 077-2 (2 inch drop) or 077-4 (4 inch drop). Heaviest duty you can get. I have the 077-2 and tow our toad with the lower and carry a Curt spare tire carrier with spare in the upper.
A bit expensive, but you will definately get what you pay for. Got mine on Amazon, cheapest I could find.

The problem is that the Ready Brute Elite tow bar does not fit in the heavy duty receiver from Curtis that they recommended.
The bike rack is not the issue.

I bought a Roadmaster double that is 10k rated as i also have a motorcycle carrier as well as towing the Jeep. I shortened the tube on the carrier so that it was closer to the mh for clearance to the Jeep.

Agree on the Road Master hi-lo. Heaviest duty one I could find when I needed one for the Jeep. Also bought via Amazon for the best price with shipping.
