Anyone have a front mounted hitch to make launching the boat easier? Since we bought the bigger 35' class A, I've been concerned about difficulty launching at some ramps.

I haven't seen it on a class A, but I imagine it would work. I imagine it would really freak out the other pick up truck guys to see you heading down the ramp head first though!

My Dad used to have one on his pickup, for launching his boat. I have not seen one on a motor home though. I'm not sure there is enough "frame work" that close to the front of mine to mount a hitch. Good luck!

We did it several years ago. However with a back up monitor backing down the ramp is easy as you can see what the trailer is doing before it moves far enough to see it in the mirrors.
