  • Bumper-Mounted HiLoHitch And Reinforcement Support Brackets For RV Bumpers
  • In the attached demonstration video for Mount-n-Lock HiLoHitch for 4" RV Bumpers - 2" Hitch Receiver - 300 lbs # MNT47FR, the reinforcement plates that are mentioned are Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Standard RV Bumper Support Brackets - 4" to 4-1/2" # MO22FR and Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets - 4" to 4-1/2" # MO34VR.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Use at Rear of 5th Wheel Trailer
  • At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. The Hollywood Racks # HLY84FR is not rated for the rougher...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2019 Forest River Cardinal With I-Beam Frame
  • The Lippert 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver for I-Beam Campers and Trailers # LC240220 you referenced gets ordered as customers order it so there isn't a specific date I can offer. However, to answer your question, if Forest River said this is a fit then that is not something I would be able to discount. Having said that, this hitch is designed to fit trailer frames with 68-3/8" between the I-beams. There is definitely another option, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs,...

  • Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1985 Dodge Van
  • There aren't any front-mounted trailer hitch receivers that are custom designed to fit for a 1985 Dodge B350 and your bumper is not structurally strong enough to work with the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100. What that means is the only option that might work is a universal, adjustable-fit hitch such as the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" wide # 13703 or the Multi-Fit Motorhome Trailer Hitch, 24" - 46" wide # 5350 or 47" - 71" wide # 82201.

  • Bumper Mounted Hitch Receiver for 4 Inch Square Bumper on RV
  • We have a good solution for you, though I took a look at the hitch you mentioned, and it is very similar in regards to installation as the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100. That leads me to believe you would have the same issues, so I recommend going with a hitch that installs differently, the Mount-n-Lock HiLoHitch for 4" RV Bumpers # MNT47FR. This hitch can install with the receiver either above or below your bumper, and uses a retention bolt, as you can see in...

  • Will the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver E-100 Work To Pull a Trailer
  • The Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 which is a fit for a standard 4" x 4" rear bumpers will allow you to tow a trailer up to 3,500 lbs. However, that is what the hitch is rated for and the bumper could be rated for less (must confirm with manufacturer). If so, you could install supports, the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Standard RV Bumper Support Brackets part # MO22FR or installs a frame mount hitch, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs part # 13703.

  • Recommended Rear RV Hitch Receiver for 2019 Cherokee Arctic Wolf
  • For the hitch prep on a 2019 Cherokee Artic Wolf I believe the prep brackets will use the Lippert 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver for I-Beam Campers and Trailers - 68-3/8" Width # LC240220. You will need to measure the brackets to confirm the fit. I've attached a video to assist. Many people choose to use a different hitch like # 13703 you asked from for a stronger connection to the trailer frame instead of the prep mounts. That is my recommendation because of the increased strength...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for Forest River No Boundries Travel Trailer
  • For your Forest River No Boundries 19.3 NoBo, I recommend the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 66" Wide # C13704. This hitch receiver is rated for tongue weights up to 500 lbs. I can't confirm your bike rack is rated for the back of your travel trailer as many manufacturers do not confirm bike racks for travel trailer use due to the excessive sway and bounce that cause additional strain on a bike rack.

I have attached a review video below. This can then be used to attach a bike rack, the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack part # HLY64FR is RV rated and can carry electric bikes. Please note, there are very few bike racks that can attach directly to the bumper, none of which are rated for electric bikes....

  • Best Rear Hitch Options 2016 Montana High Country 362RD 5th Wheel
  • You could go with the Lippert 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver for Campers and Trailers # LC730647 you were looking at, but because this only hitch has a 300-lb tongue weight rating I believe there is a better solution. I recommend going with the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Receiver # 13703 , because it has a slightly higher 350-lb tongue weight capacity. You'll want to measure the frame width on your Keystone Montana High Country 362RD to make sure that it isn't wider than 72", but as long...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for my Geo Pro Camper
  • For your Geo Pro Camper with a 59" frame rails width the DrawTite Multi-Fit Motor Home Trailer Hitch part # 82201 is an excellent choice. I like the really low profile it offers allowing it to fit snugly up under the camper. It mounts with the provided hardware directly to the frame of the camper and allows you to position it where you want it as far as more inboard or more outboard depending on where you want the receiver tube opening. The instructions are linked below if you'd like...

  • What Are the Specs for the Lippert 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver LC730647
  • The Lippert 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # LC730647 is specific to Vanleigh 5th Wheel Trailers. If you take a look at the attached photo you will see that there are tabs on this trailer that sit below the frame and the trailer hitch attaches to these. These two tabs are spaced 72" apart so if this is what you have then the Lippert 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver will work but I don't have any sort of spec sheet on this as it is a custom fit trailer hitch.

This hitch has a 500-lbs tongue weight capacity, so it's well rated for both bike racks and a cargo tray. The only advantage to a weld on application is that, if welded properly, the attachment point, weld,...

  • How to Determine if Hitch Receiver Will Work on Cargo-Lite Trailer
  • Glad the hitch for your Transit is working out, and we do have some options that are likely to work, though not a hitch specifically for a Cargo-Lite trailer. That said, all you need to do is take some quick measurements, just from middle to middle of the frame to determine a fit. From what I could find of your trailer, it is overall 82 inches wide, so the frame will be less than that, giving you a few likely options: - 18" to 51" Wide Frame: Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Electric Bike Rack For 5th Wheel Trailer

Starting with the hitch I recommend the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13703 as it will fit box frames, C-channel frames, or I-beam frames that are 22"-72" wide. The # 13703 is a Class III receiver that has a 350lb maximum tongue weight rating and 3500lb maximum trailer weight rating making it perfect for carrying a bike rack. You will...

  • How to Carry Heavy E-Bikes on Back of Trailer
  • While there is a way to carry your heavy e-bikes on the rear of a trailer, there is no way to safely carry e-bikes on the front of your trailer because there isn't a method that can handle the 100 lb - 110 lb capacity you need. So what you'll require is a trailer hitch for your trailer and an RV-approved bike rack. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703. This will work on trailers with a box frame, C-channel frame,...

However, we do have the Stromberg Carlson 2" Motor Home Hitch Receiver part # BA-100 which has a bolt hole spacing of 5" front to back and 5" side to side so it does sound like it would work for you although I am not quite sure of the intended purpose.

If that is the case you can tow with it, but you are correct that the bumper on your trailer is really the weak point. One option is to use the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets - 4" to 4-1/2" # MO34VR to reinforce your bumper for additional strength.

  • Which Weight Distribution Hitch Will Work Best on my 2019 Ford Ranger
  • The Weight Distribution I believe is best suited for your needs is the Blue Ox TrackPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - 7-Hole Shank - 6K GTW, 600 lbs TW # BLU36FR. The tongue weight range for this weight distribution system is 200 lbs - 600 lbs, you will need to confirm each trailer you use is within that range. I recommend this particular Blue Ox TrackPro for many reasons. The first reason is this weight distribution system is a No-Drill application. You simply clamp the system...

The Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 66" Wide # C13704 can be bolted or welded to the bottom of your I-Beam frame, but is only fits frames up to 66" wide where the # 13703 fits frames up to 72" wide.

For frames up to 68-3/8” wide order the Lippert # LC240220, or if you need smaller order the Curt # C13701 for frames up to 51” wide. This last Curt hitch has a 2” drop that may be beneficial for some installations. Each of these choices have a 2” receiver, and can either be bolted or welded on. I have included links to each of these options and video reviews. Of course it would be prudent to check with...

The other options would be a frame mount trailer hitch, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13703.

The easiest option would be to replace the Coupling Bolts (shown below, threaded into Coupling Nut) with tamper-resistant bolts (further below). If the coupling bolts can’t be removed, the hitch can’t be removed. You will want a Grade 5 equivalent (120,000 psi tensile strength). Bumper weight capacities vary by manufacturer and by model.

Your best option is going to be to add a trailer hitch using the Curt Adjustable Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13701 if your frame is between 18"-51" Wide or the Multi-Fit Motor Home Trailer Hitch # 82201 if your frame is between 47" - 71" wide.

Other than that your only other option would be to remove the box frame and then mount it directly to the trailer frame.

  • Old Thule Bike Rack Compatibility with RV Hitch Receiver on Travel Trailer
  • The Curt # E-100 RV Receiver is a great option that will fit with your Casita travel trailer. The Thule bike carrier is not rated for travel trailer use as none of theirs are due to the significant movement on the back of a travel trailer. My recommendation is to use the Yakima LongHaul RV Bike Rack - 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches # Y02476 which is rated for travel trailer use. I've linked a video and have also linked the page to all the travel trailer rated bike racks we carry.

  • What is the Tongue Weight of the Draw-Tite 5350 Multi-Fit Hitch

I do recommend confirming that the frame of the trailer is able to handle that much tongue weight though, since you're going to be limited to the lowest rated component in a hitch/towing setup.
