Hmmmm...150? I'd see about adding additional struts to bump up to at least 300 lbs to be functional and without too much worry.

It will easily handle a bike rack or cargo carrier....

They use the under-rated sticker so people don't tow large boats or trailers behind them.

They are frame mounted receiver hitches.
