I see the bolt on hitches used all the time but never seen one used for a large RV (usually for U-hauls or small utility trailers). That's not to say you couldn't but I don't know the weight ratings. You also need to consider the weight ratings for your vehicle.

Are you talking about bolting it on the tow vehicle or on the Rv? If on the Rv I know that it is not recommended by Crossroads and Lippert if you are using it for a bike rack although I've seen many Rv's with the bike rack mounted that way.

I used a bolt on hitch from Harbor Freight on an old trailer I had. Piece of junk.

I installed one with modifications - Curt 13703 ADJUSTABLE RV HITCH. It sat too low when initially installed.

Yes, I bought one through etrailer.com.

They have great pricing, no sales tax and free shipping on purchases over $99.00.

Forgot to mention - only use it to carry 2 bikes on a bike rack that fits into the 2" receiver.

First Post: Just got my 2013 Z1 301BH travel trailer. I want to put one of these on my bumper just for my bike rack, 4 Bikes.

Will the bumper be able to handle this?

Thanks for any help here guys.
