Welcome to the 8289 family.

Picked ours up Friday.

Sorry I cannot help with regards to towing something behind the 8289, but there will be people chiming in on that question.

The Light Weight Frame on the Signature Lite series may be an issue, but I have no knowledge or statistics on that.

Congrats on the new camper and welcome to the forum!

You'd have to get a fabricator to install a hitch to the frame rails, not the bumper. Of course any modification such as that voids the frame warranty.
