"Stacking" Hitch Adapters/Risers?

This is probably a bad idea, but I wanted to get input from others.

We have a Santa Fe with a class 3 hitch. Trying to use dual hitch reciever adapter for a cargo carrier and bike rack. The "riser" is for the bike rack and the one coming straight out in-line with the trailer hitch is for the cargo carrier. The adapter extends the cargo carrier enough that it now scraps the pavment when driving over bumps/dips. Can I use a hitch riser and then insert the dual adapter to get more height? I assume this may sacrifice the maximum tounge weight limit?

For your cargo carrier and bike rack it will be fine. ....

I wouldn't tow a toad that way though

I agree not to tow, should be fine for carrier and bike rack however.

Thanks for the feedback. Tongue is rated at 525lbs. Would I have to multiply by 50% twice to determine maximum load? Or can I do it once? Estimated weight when everything is loaded will be 230lbs.
