I bought a Cedar Creek in 2009, and before I left the dealer I had a hitch welded onto the new fifth wheel. As another posted its your rig and with some research you should know whether the frame is capable of either a bolt on hitch or a weld on application.
Happy Camping

A good welding and fab shop will reinforce your frame for you to support the addition of a hitch and loads.

I'm very fortunate, I have a great welding/fab shop that I have used several times in the past 10+ years. If you need a good one, consider Leedom's Fabrication and Welding in Colorado Springs THEY ARE AWESOME. They trued a frame on my first camper that wasn't square, fabricated battery racks on my second, installed a hitch and reinforced the frame on my third and this Spring, I plan on reinforcing the frame for my factory installed hitch on my current camper and widen my UTV trailer so I can put both of my Polaris ACE's side by side on my triple ATV trailer.

But keep in mind if you buy and install anything in the link, that is made by the same company who most likely made your frame, you're voiding your warranty, going to cause a catastrophe, and you just can't do it regardless.

All of these warranty worry worts. Years on forums have taught me that warranties are worthless.
