    Hi,

    I'm about to fit a 5th wheel hitch to 06 Nav and was just wondering if any of you guys fitted your own and if you had any hints or tips?

    cheers
    Will

    Did you get the 5er Will and swop the truck?

    Good luck.

    It's not a particularly dificult job to fit a hitch for anyone with a modicum of engineering knowledge/interest. Mine was fitted by Calder and I'd be quite happy to recomend them but if you WANT to fit your own, it's no big deal.
    Obviously, positioning is fairly critical (do you have positioning details for a Nav) and one thing that is a must is to fit spacers into the chassis rails for the horizontal holes because oterwise you're likely to crush the rails as you bolt them up.
