Arctic Wolf Rear Hitch Brackets

Anyone with an Arctic Wolf know what receiver hitch will fit the brackets that are installed below the rear bumper for double pulling or a hitch basket. I couldn't get an answer from the dealer or Forest River but they advertise the unit on the brochure that it is rear hitch ready.

I'm shocked ARTIC Wolf parts cannot get the part numbers. I ended up cutting mine off ground clearance.

I will, just need to get to a computer.

Does Louisiana allow double tow? They might make you order through a dealer.

My Heartland has the same brackets. Dealer custom made hitches that fit. They are stable, have seen boast behind a 42 ft Bighorn too! Long rig. Good luck with your search.

THanks Guys. Louisiana allows us to double pull as long as we are not over length and then natually if we scale within the truck weight ratings. it looks like the boat hitch in the document is what i will need the other two i have found online and are small receivers. thanks for the link Doc i have requested to join. I can bring it to a shop and have it done, but i figured since i have the brackets i would like to use what the factory setup in the first place but when i called they acted like the boat hitch option didnt exist. mainly would be pulling my 10ft trailer with the cart or ATV on it when going up to our hunting property, occasionally our small mud boat which is about 1500 pounds total. this camper is no wheres need to tow rating on the truck so it would take something pretty big back there to put me over limit.


my plan even with the factory hitch is to still support the back side the bumper with 4in angle iron and completely weld it, then weld it to the corners where the bumper mounts to the frame brackets and then weld the hitch to the angle on the bumper this should strengthen both the bumper and the hitch from flexing.

Any luck on this? I'm running into the same problem. I've also searched Lippert for those part numbers, but they don't exist anymore. Can anyone share a link to one that they bought? I have a 2018 Arctic Wolf with the same brackets shown in that image.
