The 3x5 rectangular tube fits nicely against the inner channel of the frame, which is "beefed" up with a .125 X 5 x 18 plate on the outer side of the frame. I used a structural adhesive to bond the plate to the 23IKSS Roo frame, but since I bolted the whole thing together with 7 ea 7/16 bolts per side, that was probably overkill. I be towing a 16' fishing boat from south Texas to northern Minnesota in a few days and have the confidence of a crazy fool that my trip will be uneventful. I have numerous very connected people praying of me and my Saint Christopher riding shotgun, so smooth sailing is assured.

Oh almost forgot, here's the hitch. Paid about $115 online with free shipping at ruralking.com.

Great install. Good luck on the trip and let us know if it was uneventful. And how the boat tows. I've been thinking about towing a boat as well.

Have you checked the state laws for all the states you'll be in and passing through to make sure that double towing is legal there? May states don't allow it.

Might want to start here: RVSafely.com
