There ya go. Guess I could hit a fab shop and have 'em build me triple off an extension. weld a 6" and 12" rise on it, put the tow bar on the 6 and a bike rack on the 12".
I did write Roadmaster and ask if there's any more clearance on the 10k hi-low (sent a pic along,) then asked if they'd make me a custom. Then I asked if building 1 was out of the question, if they'd build me 10 for a group buy. I'll keep you posted.
EDITED TO ADD:
And yes, I am probably overthinking all this. If I installed a "Quiet Hitch" (Roadmaster) on my existing setup, probably no bumping the paint (I think it touched when I was folding up the tow bar.) Roadmaster says don't use an extension with a high-low, but E-trailer has no problem recommending it. Personally, I hate to extend 7" when I need 1/2", that's just me. Between tow bar, base plate and braking system I've got $3k invested, and if I spend a little more for the optimal set up, so be it. I got spoiled several years ago having a fab area outside my office door, and worked in an environment where if you couldn't order it, you built it. Solid bar and receiver tube are available pre-fab, take those and my existing to a fab shop and have 'em match the rectangular tubing used for the riser. "Simple." It would be a lot simpler if Roadmaster would do the same, but we'll see.
