Here is 2019 377 so no factory bumper. They welded box tube and right angle to the frame and attached the hitch to that. Used my fist to show the space between the hitch and the bottom of the rear wall. Need to beef this up.

Thank you everyone!

I'm sticking to my guns on requiring them to order the hitch from Jayco. While I appreciate their efforts to help us out on our trip, the factor unit will lift the hitch several inches higher, thus reducing the risk of dragging our bike rack.

Does everybody that has the hitch also have self-level? I'd like to put a hitch on mine but I'd have to do something with the rear stabilizer assy.

My 2017 Eagle 293RKDS came standard with the hitch. Mine has auto leveling and special ordered factory installed electric stabilizer jacks as well

Are the stabilizers back where the hitch is? Mine are bolted to the brackets that are also used to mount the flip up cargo tray that was/is available. I can remove them and then weld a square tube along the frame that can then have the cross tube welded to it that a rcvr would weld to. The stabilizers could be bolted back on after with some spacers.

Yes, just forward of the hitch. The hitch is welded on to frame extensions that are welded to the frame.

Big thing about not putting the factory hitch on is SAFETY. We have a factory hitch which was part of the frame. Meaning that it was welded on to the frame prior everything else being attached to the frame. Now if you make them weld on a factory hitch, there is a very very good chance that the frame will get way to hot and start a fire. I'm thinking that would be much worse than a hitch hanging 2" lower. Just my 2 cents.

To weld on a hitch they'd need to drop the underbelly plastic. Welding onto the frame won't transfer the heat far enough to burn anything, just need to make sure there's no wiring, insulation or plastic near the welds. I welded on the brackets for my front leg braces and didn't even move the plastic belly.
