Removable 5th Wheel Hitch

We have a 2008 19ft Scamp. The hitch that came with it causes problems when we try to haul our quad runner. Have you seen the new removable Scamp 5th hitch? What does it cost? Can it be removed easily?
Thank you for your help: Jerry

Scamp is now offering a customization of a commonly available hitch, which attaches to mounting rails in the truck bed. It is as easily removable as any typical bed-mounted removable hitch... or even easier, because with just a ball instead of the usual fifth-wheel head, it will be significantly lighter.

You can custom-build (or have custom-built) a similar hitch using a different bed-mounting system if you prefer. A few Scamp owners have done this, and presumably served as the inspiration for Scamp's new product.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
