I'm going with no as you'd need a 4' drop hitch!

I am sure it is fine "as is" when it comes from the factory but then you need to include the weight of the battery and the propane and all your kids toys.

Can you imagine pulling in to a fine RV resort with a little scamp or casita behind this thing? I'd do it for the laughs.

Just ran the calculations on the puter. If you bring the kids toys you will be over weight, leaving no room for beer.... sorry kids
