Did you know that 75% of Americans towing with a motorhome are overloading their hitch and overtaxing the frame of their coach?
Almost every manufacturer of motorhomes extends the frame of the factory chassis ( Freightliner, Cummins, Workhorse, Ford, Etc. ) by a welding process called "Buttwelding"
When the manufacturer Buttwelds the two pieces of steel together, they are only glueing the two pieces of steel together. Not the kind of welding you want when towing your $50,000 car, Boat, or Trailer full of valuables down the road.
This type of extension is not strong enough for towing beyond 3,500 lbs weight carrying or 350 lbs. tongue weight.
Your chassis manufacturer may have a higher rating for the coach but this rating typically stops at the factory chassis frame rails.
Torklift Central is a licensed trailer hitch manufacturer. Being a licensed manufacturer and a fabrication shop, we have developed a process called Sub Frame Beef-Ups.
With these Sub Frame Beef-Ups Torklift Central combines the two pieces of frame and substantially increases the strength of the frame by attaching a third frame member along with re-enforcements.
Torklift then creates a new trailer hitch for the motorhome that allows the towing capacity to be increased.
