Greetings,
I have aquire a 1993 RT 190 popular with a rear floor storage hatch. This compartment hangs lower then the frame enough to block the instaltion of a stock van tow hitch. Does anyone know of a tow hitch tha will fit. Curt makes a class 1 euro vesion that looks like a posible but there are no measuments and it is mailorder. Any wise to
tidits would be apprecated.

Where in the world are you? Check the local U-Haul places, some carry hitches in stock.

My mistake Brave . I meant tow hitch. Not Bar. The Uhaul I went to wants $370 to install one and I would have to wait a week for it to come in. If you have any helpful infomation concerning my question without the sarcasm I would appreciate it.

Most auto Parts stores sell Class 1-5 receivers. I picked U-Haul because most here have them in stock. You can also check PEP Boys, AutoZone, NAPA, etc, but they will need to order it for you.

I will try a different Uhaul dealer (one bad apple theorey). I was very supicious of this one who claimed they could not just sell the hitch but had to install it also ($350.( On a previous vist for another vehical they want $160 just for the wiring). I bought the whole Hitch kit online for $80 and installed it in a lazy 1/2 hour.
I have in the past purchased a stock Reese hitch from Walmart for a Dodge B350 van. It would have required removal or damage of the custom installed storage compartment previously mentioned.
This is not a stock B350 item but a custom application required for the 1993 RT 190 POPULAR Dodge RETROFIT upon the vehical which requires a drop mounted hitch cross bar approximately 2 1/2 inches lower then the stock hitch redily available.
IF YOU OR ANYONE HAS MADE THIS ADAPTION OR IS FAMILIAR WITH THE CURT CLASS 1 EURO HITCH for the B350 and if it will work on the RV adaption (Class 1 should be fine for me) without any customizing please extend your knowledge this way.
Thanks for your input.

This reply from the Roadtek service dept. along with plans for a custom built hitch. I am going to purchase a Standard Reese hitch and alter the storage compartment. The extra 1/4 of a square foot that blocks a standard hitch was really ill concieved.

Notice***Good Morning,
An off the shelf hitch will not work.
You will need to get a custom hitch built.
Roadtrek Motorhomes Inc. used a custom built hitch and no longer carries stock of these.
You will need to have a custom fabricating shop or hitch supplier build a hitch for you.
It is advisable that you bring your unit and these instructions to a local fabricator.
This information should help with a local hitch builder to make you a customized hitch.
