Adding Trailer Hitch to 2010 3625RT

As anyone added a hitch to a 39' 5th wheel? I'd like to add a carrier. Is so, estimated cost?

There are tons of threads on this subject. It depends on the TT as to whether it is OK to mount a trailer hitch for this type of carrier. Most of the time, esp on newer and/or 'lite' models, the the bumpers aren't made to carry more than the weight of the spare tire, and adding any type of cargo carrier/hitch etc will void the warranty.

However, there are folks who have done this - some by adding additional welds/supports to the bumper, etc. Do a search for cargo carrier or bumper hitch and you'll find a lot of threads...

When I was purchasing my 5th wheel this summer, I asked the salesman what it would cost to mount a 2-inch receiver hitch on the rear of my trailer. He quoted $700. I decided to wait. Two weeks later, while I was at the dealer I was talking to the service manager, he stated that he would mount the receiver hitch for $399 which included providing a wiring harness. I asked him if he had time & a couple of hours later, I had a hitch both bolted and welded to the frame. Looks like he did a great job and I saved a few bucks waiting.

My 2010 3625 came with the hitch already installed.

Thanks all. Hearing the posts about costs and having one already installed nailed it for me. I'm getting one installed.
