Mine came with a grill and spare tire for a total weight of 138lbs attached to the rear bumper from the factory. I guess the folks at FR/PT don't agree with you that it won't hold the weight.

The heritage glen I looked at had the grill mounted on the bumper, even for travel. But I'm thinking it is a different design. This one when the grill is attached seems to stick out further than the one on the heritage glen. Plus the bracket attached to the grill is extremely flimsy. Not sure I would trust it bouncing down the road after thinking about it. It's just a severe PITA to stow it away all the time.

I was talking about the grill frame that is used to hang the grill to the trailer mount. You can see it in pictures of the first post. I have the exact same grill on my trailer. The tubes are thin walled steel and the two pieces of the frame are held together with wing bolts/nuts. Again if you look at the picture the clips visible on the cross bar are where the back of the grill attaches. The front is about another foot from that. There is no way that frame will carry the weight of the grill while traveling without breaking sooner than later. The trailer mount could most likely handle the weight but it would take modification to actually be able to use it for a permanently mounted grill.
