Speaking of holes being drilled.. beware that your 7 pin electrical cable runs along the inside of that A frame up there. Unfortunately my tech found it on my WD hitch install and it shorted at the dealer. Thankfully there and not 500 miles down the road. I lost my right rear light via a blown fuse on the TV.
Hi Doug; Sorry, I have no idea! We haven't taken possession of our Safari yet. As part of the deal, the dealer has to transfer the Hensley from our Trail Cruiser to the Safari, which currently has a EZ-Lift hitch. I expect the dealer will remove all of the existing EZ-Lift hardware (I certainly don't want anything left on).
I installed the Hensley on my then-new Trail Cruiser myself and had no problems, so I'm not expecting there'll be a problem with the Safari. (The dealer, Can-Am, specializes in Airstreams and Hensleys). The Hensley only requires that you drill two small holes per bracket and you can drill from the top or sides of the bracket, so I doubt there would be a conflict with any existing holes. The only problems that can crop up on some trailers is the location of the brackets may conflict with battery or tank frame supports, in which case they have to be moved.
Don't forget that in most cases you have to lengthen the safety chains, break-away cable and umbilical too.
