Oh yeah, should be no prob! Better than voiding the trailer warranty. I've yet to read about anyone who actually uses the dual carrier, if you get one please give us your thoughts. Ive always wondered about them. I dont have clearance with one, as I carry my dogs in the covered truck bed, dont want to have a production to have to get them out to potty while traveling.

Your TV could take over 950 lbs of tongue weight, I wish I have that, mine is only 350 lbs. You could add a class III receiver that goes over the propane tanks and attach a bike rack or aluminum platform, here is a pic of my TT with the receiver:

My bike rack could carry 3 bikes but you could attach any bike carrier for more bikes, I take my propane tanks out during my trip to be within 350 lbs tongue weight.

If the receiver is high enough, you could install it so that it will be on top of the front platform cage, I could picture another carrier platform in the receiver for 2 layers of storage or bike carrier.

More storage space for your TT, I wish I have the option to do this, maybe my next TV with a higher tongue weight rating.

The receiver I got from my dealer in Canada but check out their website

The rack looks great, I'm so tempted to get one but my TV can't take the extra load, here is the link
