Mounting a receiver hitch

Well I came over from the darkside(truck camper) and bought a 2011 Jayco 31.5 FBHS. The question I have is there any problems mounting a receiver hitch so I can pull my boat behind the camper? Thanks for the help....

There is another thread in here someplace with a lot of usefull information on this subject. Check with your state and any other states that you may be traveling through. I believe some states may not allow it.

Welcome from the darkside! I, too, saw the light of the 5ver world and am a bumper pull convert!

You might check out this thread for information regarding tandem towing, etc.

We used to pull behind our 5er but we bought a large Jayco tt so I could have my truck bed back. I much prefer towing the travel trailer and hauling our Rhino in the truck bed. Most states West of the Mississippi allow doubble towing. Washington and Oregon are still living in the dark ages.

2017 Silverado 1500 4x4 5.3 with tow package. (no, we don't tow the Jayco with it.)
2018 Surveyor 265RLDS well equipped.
