We think we've reached the point where it is time to downsize from our F250 Diesel and big fifth wheel. We have a Lightning reserved and I have been trying to determine if we can get the adapters necessary to mount a hitch on the frame. Most of the hitch suppliers have referred me to Ford. Finally I found Jeri at Pull Rite, who says the Pull Rite Techs think that the Lightning frame is the same as F150 Hybrid. They furnish frame adapters for their 3100 sliding hitch which attaches at puck points much like the current setup in the F250. We will surely wait to see feedback on the Lightnings range towing a load. My hope is to be able to tow one of the light fifth wheels (under 6000 lbs.) for 200 miles between charges. From everything that I have read online regarding Lightning & Rivian towing, I think this might be possible with the Lightning. Please no lectures about what I need to tow with a fifth wheel, I've been pulling trailers of all sorts on the fifth wheel and bumper longer than most of you have been alive.
