Unwise, as it is really not strong enough for over about 200# tongue wt and a utility trailer. IMO

I might move your trailer around a parking lot or similar, but I sure wouldn't tow it on the highway at speed.

You likely need a wdh and sway control anyway.
Some states require it.

Why is it unsafe?
What's the spec from the mfgr? I run a 4" rise ball mount from Reese or Tow Ready (same company) that has a rating of 1000 lbs weight carrying/10000 lbs tow weight. My tongue weight is about 515 lbs.

I do not know but I would not do it, that dog looks like he getting ready to grab a ball. and the other look to take it away from him.

I think we need more info before drawing conclusions. What is the ball shank diameter? What is the rating on the mount? What is the weight of the trailer and it's tongue weight?

I used something similar for pulling a Nash TT, but the 2 5/16" ball and Reese hitch was rated for it. I also used a weight distributing setup.

Exactly. Surface rust is not a problem and that sure looks just like surface rust.
