Casita Hitch Receiver
Product DescriptionCustom designed frame mounted hitch receiver for Casita travel trailers. Eliminates the bouncing and flexing from carrying bikes on the factory rear bumper of a Casita.
Our American made all steel hitch is finished in a durable black powder coat. It provides a standard 2 inch receiver for easy use with a variety of mounted bike racks, carrier platforms, spare tire carriers, portable barbeque grills etc. Your spare tire can be left mounted in its original location.
The Casita Hitch Receiver bolts directly to the rear frame of the Casita trailer. No welding is required. The hitch was designed so novice mechanics can install it themselves or you can get a local professional to install it for you.
Included in the kit are simple installation instructions with mounting templates and all necessary zinc-plated grade 8 mounting hardware. If you are curious you can download the instruction from here, and some install photos can be found here.
Don't forget about tongue weight. This is critical on the already tongue-light 16 foot models. Please read the information on our Frequently asked Questions page.
The hitch has a reinforced hole tapped on the underside that allows you to screw in a supplied bolt which tightens up against the stinger of whatever you plug into the receiver. This will eliminate the rattles and wobbles that can happen with any receiver attachment.
If you need an even more secure connection, some of our customers recommend the "hitch vise" that you can purchase from here..
We have also found that Casita frames have a manufacturing variance in frame width. Our hitch is 46 inches wide. So we also include 1/8 inch spacers for each mount point to allow a comfortable fit up to just over 46.25 inches. This covers most of the frames that we have seen. But if you need even more spacers, order them below.

Due to varying state towing laws, we do not sell this hitch with the intention of towing additional trailers. Doing so will void the 1 year warranty. Customers are responsible for obeying all state towing laws.
Product DescriptionThe Casita Hitch Thick Spacer Set allows the Casita Hitch Receiver to be installed on Casita travel trailers with frames wider than 46 1/2 inches
