2012 Shuttle Bus Ford e450

Hello everyone,

I am looking to tow with my shuttle bus. I am concerned about the weld for the additional length of the bus in reference to putting a tow hitch. Any suggestions on what type of hitch, bolt on or weld or both? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Measure the distance of the frame rails outside to outside. Then call eTrailer. They were the only ones I found that had measurements instead of going by vehicle model info.

You might find a welder that is willing to weld a universal hitch to fit.

I bought my shuttle bus with a trailer hitch already installed. It is bolted on just like every other van or class c motorhome. I tow a 20' enclosed car hauler with ATV's inside and it does fairly well.
