Hitch type used on crossroads travel trailers

Does anyone know who manufactures the hitches used on Crossroads bumper pull travel trailers? I just purchased a 2016 Z-1 FB231 and am looking to purchase a good hitch lock and it would help to know the manufacturer. I have purchased the rv but have not taken delivery yet. Thanks for any help.

Do not know the name of the manufacturer, but in the past, all mine took the same size lock.

I don't know for sure, but if the frame comes to CR with the hitch welded on,
wouldn't you think it might be a Lippert?

I really don't think it makes any difference for using a lock.

Just get a pad lock to lock the tongue. And pick up any brand that goes into the ball slot and locks. All these locks are only there to keep the honest people away. If somebody really want your trailer, they will get it.

What Harley said is so true. Bolt cutters and portable grinders will cut anything, Near where I live, the took a portable saw, cut through the wall and stole everything.

Thanks a lot for the feedback. I'm sure you are correct about lippert being the manufacturer of the hitch if they manufacture the frame. I did not know that lippert produced the frames for crossroads. Also wasn't sure if they bought their hitches from someone else and then added them after the frames were built. Y'all are also correct about the fact that if someone really wants something they are probably going to get it anyway, guess I'm just trying to make them work a little harder to get it lol. Again, thank you all so much for your responses, I really appreciate them.

I have some locks keyed alike and I just put one through the hitch.

Use the others to cable stuff up if I don't trust my camping neighbors.
