For the OP.

We are trying to make sure you don't end up with either damaged trailer, other vehicles or worse yet loss of life. I did read your profile and I stand corrected on the state you live.

It says you can triple tow. But that hitch on the bumper is scary.

Turbs...here's a thought...if you built steel poles, then, in a bind, a guy would have some strut material on hand

Forgot, they'd need to be square tubing as it's easier in some cases to work with

The Rpod has a good sturdy Channel frame. Not like the "sheetmetal" frame on larger trailers. I used pieces 2"x3" tube steel to weld crossways between outside channel to weld "drawbar" back to receiver. And added reinforcement steel to very back of stock channel frame which was welded also to the receiver tube. I would send u a picture but right now the trailer has a full cover on it and bunch of snow on top of that.
I only tow a trailer for my RZR loaded slightly forward of the center balance weight of the trailer loaded with a tonque wt of about 80 lbs. I probably would not got with much heavier tonque wt, just to be safe.

I emailed these guys and ask them if put one each side (using 4 of them) of the frame would that work and they said yes. I just have 100 lbs worth bikes in the hitch and I remove the spare tire and grill that weight 135 lbs.

This also may work but again may not - depends on your frame.

I haven't decided it I'm going to install the brackets or do right and order a receiver from Lippert the company that made my frame that I know is approved to work.
