Not from what I can see in the literature. Maybe somebody who has one will chime in. The MBS series can tow 4200 #

The Coachmen Orion has a 2000# hitch.

No, it cannot... We had a 2390 and it cannot pull a toad. The design of the Forester / Sunseeker TS series precludes easily installing any hitch unless you are willing to cut out the license plate area on the rear fiberglass cap. The Coachmen Orion uses a regular bumper instead of a one piece rear cap so they can add a Class 2 hitch. While a Transit T350 van is rated for a Class 3 hitch the frame extensions FR installs in the TS, and Orion, series are the limiting weight factor.

UPDATE: I just saw that Howard RV in Wilmington, NC installed a 2 inch hitch, below the bumper, on a TS2371. (See the last picture Here) It is still a 2,000 pound rating but at least it would work with a bike rack or cargo carrier. If you're interested in doing that you might want to give them a call for the hitch info.
