I ordered my 2010 wildcat 5er with the optional hitch. When it came in there was a sticker that said 250lb max. No wiring. I asked dealer about it and he said the wildcat did not have structural strength for the torquing and bouncing of a towed trailer behind it. My hitch was for cargo only. And the 29rlbs was not an ultralite.

And with a 1/2 ton no less. And I have a camera mounted under the camper bumper to keep an eye on the trailer tires.

From NJ to FL and back atleast once a year. There is no sway control needed if you have an adequate truck. I'm exactly 65 feet and keep to the Interstates portal to portal. Never even looked at twice.

if the wildcat is not designed to pull anything then why did mine come with a 300/3000LB factory hitch?? Yes it was installed at the factory.

And you base this on how many Wildcats you've owned? You're right and wrong though. It depends on model year of the Wildcat whether or not it is designed to pull anything. Both my 04 and 08 Wildcats had factory installed hitches on the rear.

Was based on NON factory installed hitches on ultra light trailers which is where this is posted.

I disagree, the full forum section is "Fifth Wheels | Travel Trailers| Ultra Lites". Unless there is a category for "Heavy-weights", then I think it's just part of the description and not necessarily limited to ultra-lights.

>>Forest River Forums > Fifth Wheels | Travel Trailers | Ultra Lites > General Travel Trailer & Fifth Wheel Discussion > Wildcat > Pulling a boat
