I'd like to change me trailer hitch coupler.
« on: January 11, 2018, 12:39:55 AM »
Hello,

I have a 2015 21BHS. It currently has the 2" trailer hitch coupler and I'd like to replace it with a 2 5/16" coupler. Has anyone done so? If so which brand / model coupler did you end up choosing? Does anyone know what the one brand / model is that Livinlite used from the factory? Thanks.

The side bolts were a Livin lite modification to prevent the frame/hitch bending.  My 2017 came without the bolts but Livin lite sent me the parts and measurements to install the extra bolts.
