I have pulled a boat behind my 2003,2005,2006 & 2007 and by the way snowmobile trailers here in Colorado also.. The key is the rear hitch factory or custom made needs to be reinforced spreading the load further forward to capture more of the ibeam and spread the load. A highly qualified structural welder usually makes the right call on how to reinforce it. My average boat i pull is about 4500lbs never been an issue.

I am obviously late to this conversation, but will add my input-

We have a 2006 31QBH. We pull a 2500lb runabout behind it. Reinforced rear bumper & hitch was fabricated and installed by myself.

I keep a close eye on the rear bumper / hitch, and also the front pinbox / frame area for cracking or anything unusual. After 10 years, I can report no problems from pulling the boat behind our 'Cat.

For anybody to make a blanket, generic statement that it can't or shouldn't be done is hogwash. With the standard caveats applied, towing a boat or extra trailer can be safely done with undue risk.
