What kind of hitches on Coachman?

My 35' 1995 Coachman Santara has a built in trailer hitch of course but I don't know anything about it. Can I be safe in assuming that it at least a Class III or Class IV hitch? My rig has a Ford 454 engine

BOY oh Boy, just hate to make asumptions like that. It will be at least 3500lb, maybe 5000.
Maybe we'll hear from someone who has that oach and knows?

First, if you have a Ford chassis it's probably not a 454. Thats a GM motor. Yours might be a 460. Most factory installed hitches are a class 3 3500 lb units with a max tongue weight of 300-350 lbs.
