Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2012 Ford E-350 RV


Will the Draw - Tight hitch #65052 fit my 2012 Ford E 350 super Duty RV. Need to put my bicycle rack in it?

The Draw-Tite # 65053 Trailer Hitch Receiver is not a confirmed fit for your 2012 Ford E-350 RV.

The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver that is a fit for your E-350 that I recommend using is the Ultra Frame # 41945. This is a Class V trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. It also has a max Tongue Weight of 1,500 lbs (1,200 lbs with Weight Distribution) and a max Gross Trailer Weight of 10,000 lbs (12,000 lbs with Weight Distribution). I have attached a video of this hitch being installed on a 2012 Ford Van that will be similar to your E-350.

You will want to be sure that your bike rack is rated for use on an RV. Since RVs tend to have more play at the rear due to distance from the rear axle, you want to avoid using accessories that have not been tested and approved for the extra movement. For a 2 mount bike rack, I recommend going with the Let's Go Aero BikeWing 2 # B01311. This rack is rated for use on an RV and has a weight capacity of 80 lbs (40 lbs per bike).
