Lippert, the manufacturer of the frames under these Roos, offers a bolt-on receiver that won't void your warranty provided it is installed by a 'qualified technician'.

Might I suggest you check their web site, as I had done in the recent past?

That is interesting...Lippert told me that if I bolted, welded or modified my frame in anyway that it "could" void the warranty. Now I say that having a 5'er with a different frame than the OP.
My dealer contacted Lippert (I have a thread somewhere out there about it) about installing a lippert component for bikes and what not by my dealer's master fabricator. Lippert responded with...something along the lines of...It is a case by case basis, IF you have a frame failure then they or you will have to prove what caused the failure. If it is proven that the modification to the frame caused or attributed to the failure than they have cause to deny the claim.
I want to point out that I was never told...that it "would" void my warranty...just basically it will be much more of a pain to prove it out...
I am having my buddy do it A) because I trust me B) because it is much cheaper than the dealer...

I looked, I found zero documentation to support your claims.

Do you want to use your camper or not? Take it to a welding shop or someone that is highly recommended and have a custom hitch cut and welded to the frame with heavy tubing. They will of course have to drop the back underbelly to get to the frame so they can weld heavy tubing across. If you want to use your camper then have one made and enjoy it. But I will add that my trailers were larger 5ers so that could be a deciding factor. The frames on the ones I did it on were heavy frames. And this is just my opinion. I would never want to give anyone advice that would endanger them or anyone else. It has to be your decision. Maybe have someone to inspect your frame to see how heavy it is and if it is strong enough to do the job.
I have a 32 ft Rockwood Ultralite. No way I would weld or attach anything. I mounted a Arvika bike rack to test this. Used a Go Pro and drove around the block, returned home and took it off. I wish I kept the video, it was before I was on this forum.

I remember asking Lippert at the Goshen rally for solutions for mounting bikes on the back of a Rockwood. Was told nothing they sell would be suitable and any modification would be a warranty violation.

Thank you for getting this back on track. We started down the bike path and the OP was talking about fire wood and coolers. Neither of which I would even put on the back of my unit.
