I have seen all kinds of adapters, some purchased and some homemade. Morons will do what Morans do.
Worse than having the temptation to tow something heavy with a 2" receiver is to get a 1 1/4 receiver and use an adapter to add a 2" cargo rack or bike rack. As for every 12" the extension/adapter sticks out cuts your tongue weight capacity in half. If you start with the 200 lbs capacity of most 1 1/4" receivers that only leaves 100 lbs minus the weight of the cargo carrier=not much weight left.
I have been very glad I bought the 2" receiver and never had the sudden urge to tow any trailers. But others have proven trailer towing can be done.
And there is NO sagging
on my bike rack loaded with four bicycles or my cargo rack with lots of luggage. But again this is a TorkLiftCentral hitch for a Prius C
not a Nissan Leaf
. But I would imagine their quality would stand behind their line of goods. http://torkliftcentral.com
