Upgrading Hitch Capacity for 2007 Monaco Signature Series

Question:

I have a 2007 Monaco RV, Signature series. It currently has a bolt on 10,000 lb hitch. I would like to upgrade to the Super Titan 4,000 but I see that it is for frame widths of 34 to 34 1/2. My frame rails are 36 1/4 inches and are not C channel type rails. Is there any way that the Super Titan can be modified or can additional spacers be used to fit my application? I would also prefer the bolt on rather than a welded type hitch.

We can get you a higher capacity hitch, though please keep in mind that your towing capacity is going to be limited to the lowest-rated component. So if your 2007 Monaco Signature Series only has a 12,500 lb towing capacity that would be the most you could tow even with a higher-rated hitch.

As for the Super Titan 4000 # 38124 it cannot be modified in order to fit your '07 Monaco nor would you want to use spacers to try and make it fit. This hitch was designed for frame widths of 34-1/2" but two spacers can be removed to fit 34" wide frames and those are the only applications in which you could safely use it.

There is not a bolt-on option available if you wanted a higher capacity, so for your 36-1/4" frame rails the hitch that would work is the Curt Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch # 15903. This hitch has a 15,000 lb capacity and 1,500 lb tongue weight capacity and can weld onto the frame of your Monaco. I've added a link to the installation instructions of this hitch for you to take a look at.
