I am contemplating buying a laredo and having a hitch welded on to triple tow a fishing boat. I realise the manufacturer wil void the frame warranty etc. The only two 5ers I can find that come with factory installed hitches are newway and excel. I realise no one can say yah go ahead for fear of liability but here in south dakota fishing area almost every 5er tows a 4-5,000 boat along behind as long as total lenght is 80 or less. Anyone done this with a Laredo? Any thoughts other than the obvious? thanks for you experiences tom

Take your RV to a good welding hitch shop and see what they can do to the frame to install a hitch. Just because everyone else does it doesn't mean it's a good thing to do to a RV frame.

I have a 2003 Laredo 29BH. A friend of mine who is a very good fabricator and welder made a receiver hitch for my trailer. I have used it to tow my 2 jetskis without a problem for thousands of miles around Michigan. It works great. The worst part of the whole setup is the extra length for gas stations, etc. and not being able to back up easily.
