terry from TX wrote (July 29, 2015):

I'm impressed. This was exactly what I needed. On the web site, I was given enough information about the product, that I was able to make a great decision concerning my needs. I'm a female and know nothing about these kind if items. My mechanic told me what to look for. This shipped day after I paid and received two days later. I'm very happy.

5 Stars This is the place to shop

Mark from OH wrote (July 10, 2015):

I needed a drop receiver to attach the towbar from my motorhome to the towed vehicle. Discoundramps.com had the best price on the net plus shipping was only $10. Other places were charging twice as much for shipping. I ordered the DRH-3 on Tuesday and received it on Friday. That is amazing. The receiver is very heavy and well built. I will shop here again!

Daniel from NY wrote (April 22, 2015):

I received the hitch today within 3 days of ordering which was great. I inspected the hitch and I was amazed at the quality and very heavy gauge steel that was used the finish was also great. I would highly recommend this product it exceeded my expectations and the price was great also. I look forward to doing more business with your company.

5 Stars Awesome product and super customer service!

Very sturdy and reliable product! I had trouble with my hitch being too low and dragging in areas when my power chair is loaded but this product really helped. Thank you again!

4 Stars Drop hitch

Sue from FL wrote (March 26, 2015):

The drop hitch came and the hitch pin holes did not line up. Could not get the pin through the holes because they were offset. Called customer service and sent them a picture. They were very accommodating and sent me out another which works great.

5 Stars Just right.

Jay from MS wrote (February 19, 2015):

I bought it to use on our RV with the motorcycle carrier that I also bought here (Item # SMC-600R). I needed to extend the hitch out far enough beyond the spare tire on the RV, to make room for the Suzuki Burgman 400, and also to lower the carrier to make it easier to load the scooter. This product does both, with enough weight capacity to handle both the scooter and the carrier. It seems to be solid and well made, much more heavy-duty and better quality than similar products I looked at.

5 Stars Hitch Drop / Riser

Tim C from TX wrote (January 15, 2015):

I bought this riser for the hitch on the back of my RV. Due to the motorcycle carrier that I also ordered it stuck out long enough that I worried that on an uneven entrance, the carrier would drag. This riser solved that problem.

5 Stars drop hitch

Darwin from NC wrote (October 30, 2014):

We have a Hoveround power lift to attach to 2014 Jeep Cherokee. The hitch on the jeep is 20 inches high and needs to be 13 to 17 inches high . This drop hitch will allow us to attach the power lift to the Jeep and transport the wife's power wheel chair. shipping was very fast and the item was priced affordable.

5 Stars Just what the doctor ordered

Jim from CO wrote (October 25, 2014):

I bought this riser because I pull a jeep behind my RV with a surge brake system. I needed the riser to level the system. This item worked great because it lifted the hitch receiver 4.5 in. and kept the weight limit needed to pull the Jeep. Other risers like this do not have towing capacity and are meant for things like bike racks.

5 Stars Hitch Drop/Riser 4 1/2"

Ken from WY wrote (September 17, 2014):

This product is exactly what I needed. It is built very well and I would recommend it to anyone. I bought a wheel chair ramp for my RAV4 and had to remove the spare tire from its' mount on the rear swinging door so I could get the ramp to fold up when not in use. However, I had to put my spare tire in the 'trunk' by lowering one side of the back seat to get it there because I could not open the rear swinging door only about 8 inches with the ramp mounted, even with the ramp folded down and ready to accept the wheel chair. The door hit on the ramp. This drop hitch solved two problems. I can now open the back door with the ramp in the unfolded, down position, and was able to remount the spare tire on the outside where it is supposed to be (inside was a safety concern). As an added plus, the wheel chair doesn't have to climb so steep to get onto the ramp (4 1/2 inches lower makes a lot of difference because of the shortness of the ramp). The ramp now folds up nicely against the spare tire. Perfect. Thank You!

3 Stars Class III hitch adapter

Dave from TN wrote (September 13, 2014):

First off, I'll tell you what I like about this adapter. It makes my wheel chair lift work as designed. I have a tall vehicle (Ford Expedition) and the hitch is about 2 inches too high. This adapter allows the platform on my lift to touch the ground and that allows me to load my chair. There was an adapter available from the lift manufacturer, but it cost $190, a no brainer for buying this adapter. The quality of construction is good and the finish is good. I ordered this on the 9th and received it on the 12th, can't beat that!! Packaging was good, received in good condition. Now, let me tell you what I don't like about this adapter. First, I had to drill out the hole for the hitch pin. For some reason the manufacturer thinks a Class III hitch uses a 1/2 pin. Wrong! It uses a 5/8 inch pin. Problem with this is I had to buy a $17 drill to correct that issue. The next issue is that I wish they would drill a couple more holes in the part that goes into the receiver on my Expedition. I could shorten up the lengt
