Hi
Just bought a 2019 Adventurer 23RB with Ford E350 6.2 V8 and I want to put a
motorcycle on the hitch but I can’t find any specs on the weight the hitch can carry , does anyone know?
TIA

This RV appears to be made for the rental market, therefore there is not much literature available for it. Rental units aren't often used for towing.


The E350 chassis with the V10 engine typically typically has a 12.5K lb GVWR and an 18.5K lb GCWR. Off the top of my head, I don't know if the ratings are derated with the V8. If you're at or near the GVWR, which is easy to do on the E350 chassis, you could theoretically flat tow up to 6,000 lbs if your hitch is rated that high. Otherwise, you're limited by the hitch rating. Is there some type of hitch manufacturer's name and/or model number on it? Post it here, which might help us figure it out.

In order to know how much weight (motorcycle, trailer tongue weight, etc) you can hang off of the hitch, you really need to weigh your ready to travel MH. Run it across a truck scale and weigh the front and rear axles. You should have a placard somewhere inside the motorhome that you can compare actual to design weights. My guess is that you won't have much reserve capacity to haul a motorcycle.

is the hitch connected to the Ford frame or an extended frame? If it’s extended, have a hitch shop look at it. Extensions can be a weak link.

Ford E-350 chassis with that small class C should be rated for 5000 lbs towing with the factory hitch, need to look at the hitch and see if its attached to the frame and look on hitch to see the rating of towing.

My E-350 is rated for 5000 pounds your should be as well.

A 2 door Jeep should be fine flat towing.
