Welcome to iRV2 .

I'll assume your current hitch is a Class IV , so if either Freightliner or Tiffin can supply you with the manufacturer and part number for your existing hitch , then contact the hitch manufacturer with the info and ask about a Class V.

Be warned that the reason there is only a Class IV on your coach is probably related to frame strength, chassis brake system and/or transmission GCWR.
So an increase in hitch strength doesn't mean you can safely tow to the hitch capacity.

found it on etrailer.
GCWR is not over the man specs, the the trailer with payload is #12,000 just a little over the #10,000 rated current hitch.

thank you for your help
