Expert Answers about RV and Camper Hitch


  • 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. If you don't have a Vanleigh 5th...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 5th Wheel Trailer Frame
  • For your 69 inch frame measurement you can use the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703 or # C13704 both of which have a tongue weight rating of 350 lbs but with different mounting styles. These both are bolt on options. There is also a weld on option in the Ultra-Fab 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver for Trailer Frames # UF35-946403. My recommendation is the Curt # C13704 based on the ease of installation with the bolt-on method from the bottom...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Fifth Wheel Trailer Frame that is 71 inches Apart
  • The best multi-fit hitch option we offer for your fifth wheel trailer frame that is 71 inches apart that will have the hitch opening the closest to the rear of the trailer is the Curt part # 13703. This fits frame rails that are up to 72 inches apart outside to outside and the hitch tube sticks out 8-3/16 inches forward of the crosstube of the hitch. See picture.

  • 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...

  • Bolt-On Trailer Hitch for a 2018 Vanleigh Vilano 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I spoke with Lippert about the Trailer Hitch Receiver for Vanleigh 5th Wheel Trailers part # LC730647 and they said this would work on your 2018 Vanleigh Vilano if the distance between your two frame rails inside to inside is 72". If this distance is not 72" then there would not be a bolt-on trailer hitch available which means your only option would be a universal fit trailer hitch. If that is the case I recommend the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs part # 13703 because...

  • Correct Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch for I-Beam Frame That is 69 Inches Wide
  • The Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 68-1/2" Wide # C13704 is for frames that are a maximum of 68-1/2" wide so it is not the correct hitch for your 69" wide I-beam frame. For a frame of that width you would need the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703 though it has different brackets, and I've added a photo of their dimensions for you to take a look at. These brackets can be flipped (on both hitches) without issue. If that...

  • Bracket Measurements of Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs
  • I have added a cut out for you which shows the measurements of the brackets on the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs # 13703 as well as how they mount to box frames, C-channel frames, or I-beam frames. This 2 inch receiver will work on trailer frames that have a width between 22 inches and 72 inches wide and has a 3,500 lb capacity with a 350 lb tongue weight capacity, though I recommend contacting the trailer manufacturer to find out exactly what the capacity of your trailer...

  • Trailer Hitch for Camper Frame With Bolt Holes 51 Inches Apart
  • The Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13701 is 51 inches from end to end (see accompanying photo), so to fit your camper you will want to go to the next size up, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 68-1/2" Wide # C13704. This hitch has a longer crosstube but it is designed to be trimmed so the ends are flush with the brackets. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and has a lifetime warranty which speaks to its durability. Please keep in mind...

  • 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.

  • Difference Between Curt Adjustable Trailer Hitches 13703 and 13704
  • The difference between the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receivers # 13703 and # C13704 are a couple things, starting with the # C13704 having a 5,000 lb towing capacity and 500 lb tongue weight capacity while the # 13703 has a a 3,500 lb towing capacity and 350 lb tongue weight capacity. Both fit box frames, C-channel frames, or I-beam frames, though the # C13704 is for frames 22" to 68-1/2" wide while the # 13703 is for 22" to 72" wide frames. The Stabilizing Straps # 18050...

  • Where on Trailer Frame to Measure for Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch for RVs
  • Thanks for all those measurements! There is a trailer hitch that will work great for your travel trailer, though the measurement you want to go with is from outside to outside, which you said was 70-1/2 inches. That means the correct hitch is the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and 350 lb tongue weight capacity so you will be able to carry a good deal of cargo with it. For a cargo carrier on the rear...

  • 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,...

  • How Much Can the Rear Bumper Hold On A Vintage RV Camper
  • I would not be able to speculate on the rear bumper capacity for any one particular trailer especially one this old but if you feel you will be exceeding this with the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 you can add supports, the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets part # MO34VR. The other options would be a frame mount trailer hitch, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13703.

  • 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.

If you have a frame that is shorter then the Draw-Tite # 5350 is a great option with a 500 lb tongue weight. If you are unsure of the width of your trailer frame the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703 is a great option that with either bolt or weld on and is rated for 350 lbs tongue weight.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying 60 lb Bike at Rear of Travel Trailer
  • I do have a bike rack solution that will work well for your, but not every bike rack is designed for the rouger ride quality at the rear of a camper. I wish I could recommend the Thule EasyFold XT part # TH903202 for you as it is a great rack, but it shouldn't be used at the back of a travel trailer. The most similar option is the Swagman Escapee part # S64693 which has a 60 lb per bike capacity and can be used at the rear of a camper so it would work well for you. This would work great...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Forest River Rockwood Ultra Lite with Welded Bumper
  • Thanks for the photo! I can now see the issues you are having trying to install a trailer hitch on your 2019 Forest River Rockwood Ultra Lite Fifth Wheel. That said, the brackets for the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13703 and the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13704 are too large to attach to the square tubing used to attach your bumper and this square tubing would get in the way if you tired to mount the hitch to the frame underneath.

  • Weight of 2 inch Curt RV Bumper Trailer Hitch Receiver and Securing It With Bike Rack
  • I checked with the manufacturer for you and the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 weighs 12 lbs. This hitch fits 4" x 4" square bumpers and while there is technically not a built-in security measure to keep someone from taking the hitch, it does get torqued down tightly to your bumper as you can see in the linked instructions, so it would be quite a bit of work to take it. Additionally, if you were using a bike rack such as the Thule Range 4 Bike RV Rack # TH9057 or...

  • Is RV Trailer Hitch Available with 10,000 lb Weight Capacity

These are the same hitch with the only difference being the 13701 has a 2" drop for the receiver. We do have the Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Cross Tube # 41991 which has a 16,000 lb towing rating but I'm not sure if it would fit your...

  • 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,...

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...

Instead the best option is the Ultra-Fab 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver for Trailer Frames # UF35-946403 which is adjustable and welds onto I-beam, C-channel or rectangular trailer frames that are between 47-1/8" and 77" wide so it is perfect for your 75 inch frame, though it...

Not all hitch accessories can be used on trailers or motorhomes but this particular Swagman carrier can be used on ANY vehicle, car, truck, van, pop-up camper, 5th wheel or motorhome. This sturdy rack is unique in this respect. Using a bike rack in the trailer's hitch will...

  • Trailer Hitch and Weight Distribution Recommendation For 2007 Mercedes Benz ML350
  • Both hitches share the same basic design and the same capacity, but I'd personally choose the Curt # 13342 over the Draw-Tite # 75376 because I feel that Curt does a better job with their powder coat finish.

The best solution is to use the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 68-1/2" Wide # C13704 or up to 72 inch wide # 13703. This trailer hitch will mount to the frame of your trailer and will allow you to use a bike rack or cargo carrier on your trailer. If...

  • Can Brackets on Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver Mount to Top of I-Beam
