Towing with a 5th Wheel

I have a 2010 FR Flagstaff 8528 BHSS. I installed a rear bumper clamp hitch to carray a metal wire reck for coolers and or wood. What will I need to do to tow a ten foot covered utility trailer that will carry aprox. 2,000lbs.

First off, that "bumper" hitch you installed will probably rip the sewer hose carrier err bumper off the first time you use it. Second, to tow anything with your trailer you MUST have the proper hitch installed. That means a frame mounted hitch platform.

My advice? Don't even attempt it or the rack already installed. You are asking for BIG trouble and could possibly cause a catastrophic accident involving some innocent others. These trailers are not designed to have things hung on the rear bumper or attached to the frame in any way!
