I have a 200 series Landcruiser with a 2 inch lift and a factory towbar. There is an extended gooseneck which is about three inches too high for a small trailer. Can anyone tell me where I can get a suitable gooseneck?
I would prefer not to have to shell out for an adjustable one.
Many thanks
Keith

You can buy different offsets any where that sells tow bars.
I am assuming that you have turned yours over?

Yep, turn it upside down if you haven't already done so.

Nope - you can't turn the 200series hitches over!

I have same issue with my raised 200 series - The height is ideal for my Caravan Coupling and it's Hitch, but several inches too high for Toyota Tongue. Toyota do have an extended drop hitch I understand. The alternative is to raise the height of the coupling on the trailer draw bar, you would need a spacer and longer bolts obviously, or have it welded with a spacer.

I went to an engineer who does tow bars and they got a drop down hitch for a 2000 hilux and modified it for my cruiser they just had to shorten the part which goes into the receiver and drill a new hole for the pin, paid around $100-$150 at the time it was hay man Reese and was brand new

Bill I do thank you and apologise. I went off to Repco this morning before I'd seen your post. That was most generous of you.
