Class V hitch important for 30 S/O!
Yes, I converted to a class 5 too, because of the OEM receiver problems. I found a Curt for less than $200 and put it right on to pull my 30 S/O. It's a real beefy receiver and holds the HA real well. I'm pulling with a 4x4 CC 2500HD and I had to use a 6" drop on it. Good luck with your conversion.
I found the receiver went on without a problem.
