19g tow hitch

Does the Cruise America 19g come with a tow hitch?


Thanks.

All the ones Iíve seen had a hitch receiver. Hitch rating wasnít that high, but plenty for bikes, compact car, small trailer, etc. I think it was around 3,500 pounds, but going from memory so not sure.

You can see hitch on many pictures of various 19G, including the Cruise America.

Towing capacity wasn't much...
Chance... Nice pictures!
The 350 chassis with a 351 just isn't built for dragging stuff around.

Thor specs does show hitch as standard, and rated at 3,500 pounds; at least for 2010 ~ 2012 model year period.

Good luck.

Unless you're thinking of bringing along a full cord of firewood:

The 3,500-pound hitch rating probably comes with fairly low (10% common) tongue weight limit, so you may not be able to carry as much as you want if limited to +/- 350 pounds, minus the carrierís weight.

Older 19G came with 5.4L V8 with GCWR of only 13,000 pounds, which probably limited towing more than anything else. The chassisí load carrying ability itself is likely limited by rear axle load on single rear tires. Itís basically the same E-350 chassis as my van, except I have V10, which provides 18,500-pound GCWR. I can tow close to 10,000 pounds with tongue weight of up to 1,000 pounds, but thatís limited by what the resulting load ends up on rear axle.

Obviously, I can use a weight distribution hitch to carry higher tongue weight while reducing load on rear axle, but weight distribution is not possible if hauling a load on a cargo tray.

One of the main issues with 19G remains the limited 6.5 cubic feet of outside storage, which makes hitch cargo carriers popular.
