The rack is a Swagman X2 with a curved 1-1/4" shank. I will state there is a label on it "Not Recommended for RV use". I would never put it on the back of our 5er for sure!
The receiver was fabricated using 2 pieces of 4"X6"X1/4" steel angle, I don't remember how long. The receiver tube I bought at the local RV parts department. I leveled my 5er, placed the angle on the pin box then marked a level line on it. I used an angle grinder to cut the angle. Then took the assembly to a local fabricator who wielded it and punched the four 1/2" mounting holes. cost about $40.
