This is Real Easy to answer! NO!! The Sheet metal bumper on your V-Nose unit is NOT made for a Rear Hitch! Your Sheet Metal Frame is NOT made for a Hitch to be added! It is a Good bet that your rear B/R slide will Crack at the Top Sidewall Corners from the additional strain placed at the Rear when going down the road! You didnt supply much Info but Only (Bumper and a Pic. of your Rig)! Youroo!!

What you need to contact your frame maker which is probably Lippert and they should have info on what hitches can be installed. Lippert makes and sells receivers that can carry a bike to tow bass boat and they will know what you can install on your TT and that will not damage you frame.

Easy from a desktop maybe. I'm utilizing the APP. I checked his profile and no coach is listed.
