Thread: Class V Hitch

  1. #1

    Class V Hitch

    I just replaced the factory hitch on my F-350 with a Reese Titan Class V. The problem is I can't find anybody who stocks or can order a locking pin for this hitch because it is 1/2 " bigger than the standard hitch. Does anybody know who makes a locking pin for a class V?

    I didn't know that. I just ordered my Titan class 5. I'll let you know if they have the locking pins. I have one for my Class 4 I guess I can't use anymore

    The biggest one I could find (even from Reese) was for a class 4. It might come down to having something fabricated. Are you also getting the 2.5" hitch, or are you going to use the sleeve adapter for the 2". The place that put mine on happened to have the 2.5" hitch and I am afraid it will get stolen, and I will have to order another one since nobody stocks them if that should happen.

    BTW: I was also told the adapter sleeves are hard to find as well so either way you go be careful of theft.

    How about sleeving your class4 pin? I dont think strength will be a problem since some of us have been towing far over the class 4 weight with a class 4 hitch.

    I just got my Titan hitch on my new Dodge 2500. I ordered the hitch, reciever, ball and whatever else is needed to rig this truck to tow 12000!! It was complete and ready to roll when I picked it up. Call the Hitchman 301-870-0290. They can hook you up!!

    Who did you purchase the hitch from ? If they carry Reese hitches they have access to the draw bar, hitch balls and draw bar pins required for the Titan line.

    If the pin was not included or they do not know where to get one, I would also make sure the hitch ball is capable of handling the 12,000lbs dead weight load. I am only making this suggestion because the person who sold you the hitch did not have the pin and does not know where to get one may not know where to get, or about, the high capacity ball.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the suggestions, I will give them a try. Just so everybody understands I did get a pin with the hitch, but it is not a locking pin, and I also got the 12,000# ball. I was told that they checked the Reese catalog and they did not carry a locking pin for the class V, just class 4 and below(they may not know what they are talking about). Thanks again.
