Snow plow subframe for towing?????

I have a 2016 Chevy Silverado regular cab, short bed 4X4 pickup. I found out that I can flat tow the pickup by putting the transfer case in neutral.

I just had a Boss snowplow mounted on the truck so there is a substantial subframe for the plow mounted to the truck frame.

Is it possible to get a tow bar that fits a snowplow subframe for towing behind an RV? I know I'd still have to do something about a braking setup and lights. I figured if the subframe is strong enough to take the abuse of plowing then it "should" handle the stresses of towing.

Has anyone done this (safely)?

Thanks

My guess is you won't find one ready made. I would check with a local welding shop. Depending on your tow bar you may need to by a base plate that they will modify of they may build from scratch.

I would bring the truck and tow bar to the shop.
