I know some of your heavier fifth wheels come from the factory with reese hitch . I have seen cardinal, landmark and hitch hiker...but all of those are pretty heavy units with min. 12" frames.

I have added 2" receivers to every RV, trailer and 5er that I've owned. I always think of you don't care about warranty set yours up the way you need it. The receiver has to be mounted off the main frame. So, if you know someone that does metal fabrication and welding let them do it. The bottom enclosed part has to be taken down and heavy steel tubing welded across to each side of the frame and the 2" receiver welded on that with heavy braces. That being said; I've always used mine for a cargo carriers and not triple towing. A friend of mine has a Ford 250 diesel and a fifth-wheel and he tows his boat behind that. Is it safe? Well that's the million dollar question. I personally wouldn't do it; Legal or not.
