[QUOTE=spritz;1515777]I have a 1982 Pace Arrow 30 ft and I bought a Kar Katty SS last season after buying the MH and I towed a 99 Deville Concours.
I presumed that the hitch was a class 3. All 3 of my last Pickups had a class 3 hitch so I kind of know what a class 3 looks like and the hitchon the MH looks like a monster compared to the Class 3's that I have seen.. I bought the Kar Katty from a very reparable Dealer here in MN, they even sold me the receiver and ball and hooked the Katty to the MH. Last month I got along with my boating Mag a booklet from Ford with towing information and they described my hitch to a T as a class 2, I found a sticker that says Tongue weight 250 lbs and towed vehicle 3500lbs??? That sounds like a class 2 not a 3. How can I find out if it is a 2 or a 3? Since the dealer showed me how to hook it up and everything one would think they would have said "hold on here you don't have the right hitch" Why would a MH come with a Class 2 hitch instead of a class 3?
While the labeling on the hitch should be the bottomline, stickers on the RV might be for an old hitch that has been replaced.
Another general rule of thumb is that receiver-type hitches are typically offered with a square receiver opening of 1.25 inches (32 mm) (for Class I/II) vs. 2 inches (51 mm) (for Class III/IV/V).
Best of luck.
