Lippert Accessory Hitch

Has anyone installed the Lippert Assessory Hitch on a 2023 Freedom Express Ultralite?

Moved thread from the Modifications and Updates section to the Coachmen sub-forum since the OP is asking for specific information on a Coachmen product.

We had one installed when we purchased our unit. Have not used it yet but hoping it will come in handy for maybe bike rack or cargo carrier etc.

Was this performed by the dealer?
My concern is whether or not this will void any warranties.
We have the “forever warranty”

The Forest River warranty is one year. If the dealer sold you a "forever warranty" (actually more like an insurance policy), we have no idea what the terms are. You will need to read the paperwork carefully. Some of these can be cancelled if you fail to get expensive inspections each year.

What model trailer? Some of the lightweight ones have structure that will carry very little weight.

Yes dealer installed it. It's a factory authorized accessory. The bumper of the trailer had a sticker on it saying it was prepped to install one.

Yep, your "Forever Warranty" is a 3rd party warranty and has nothing to do with Forest River nor their factory one year warranty.

Interesting question.
Installing an overpriced low quality Lippert Accessory Hitch on a Lippert Frame.


Ask Lippert, since they are the ones who warrant both the hitch and frame.
If they say it doesn't void their frame warranty, get it in writing. I trust them as far as I can throw them. I expect they would tell you its ok just to get you to buy the overpriced hitch, then if there was a problem later deny your frame warranty for installing one of their products on it. It's in their DNA.
