That was my experience with Lippert concerning bolting on a receiver in the back of my Roo. I chose to not do it. No need to get snarky. You don't like the information offered in good intentions, disregard it.

I wasn't being snarky, I just wanted to know where you seen the the information you were quoting.
You asked me to look for it myself, I did that and found no documentation to support your claim.

I am going to go out on a limb and say that...
TURBS was basically asking/looking for this documentation listed somewhere under Lippert because of it's potential importance. This topic always causes conversation and finally having something written in Lipperts "letterhead" would surely be of value for these types of conversations moving forward. Depending of course on the unit specified.

If I am wrong...I will surely be correct...

You are correct.

Ok, thank you everyone for your opinions and suggestions. I think I will just have to make room in the bed of my truck for the extra stuff.

I didn't mean to start a argument, I was just seeing if anyone else had done this before and if so what kind of hitch they had used.

Unfortunately you brought up a highly debated topic.
Not your fault.
Of course a simple search on this site would have shown how many times this has been asked.
Put bikes in bed good choice.

I took it straight to a welder that specializes in trailers. I have an A frame and he did a spectacular job. I put a 147 lb generator on with the gas tank full and an extra 5 gallons of gas beside it. Drove to Key West & back to Delaware with no problem in handling, driving or the load moving

Which Welder/fFabricator did you use? Once my warranty is done I was thinking of putting my generator on the back

I don't believe in things that can't be done. This is real world experience.
I started with a bumperless 2013 Keystone Passport on an LCI "lightweight" frame.
2 sections of 3-1/2 X 3-1/2 X 5/16 angle and a 4X4 standard tube bumper from RV factory surplus.

No warranty voided, no catastrophe created. Hauling 2 full coolers for 3 seasons proves it can be done without the world coming to an end.
