Recommended Hitch for a Forest River Camper


I am looking for a receiver hitch for the back of my 5th wheel camper. I have a 2009 Forest River Cardinal MK-30. Any help would be appreciated. Probably a tow rating of 5k+.


Expert Reply:

There is only one RV receiver hitch available with a tow rating that high, which is the Curt Adjustable Receiver for RVs # C13702. This is a Class III hitch with a maximum tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs and a maximum gross trailer weight of 5,000 lbs, though it will only work if your Forest River has a frame that is between 18 and 51 inches wide.

If you have a wider frame, there is another adjustable RV receiver from Curt, # 13703, which is designed for frames between 22 and 72 inches, but has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs and a maximum gross towing weight of 3,500 lbs. I have included links to video reviews of both receiver hitches for you to take a look at.
