Not accurate....its "potentially" a warranty issue. If you mount something and you have a frame issue on the other end of the trailer, the frame manufacturer who is probably LCI (Lippert), could try and pull that warranty voiding BS but you have the Magnuson Moss warranty act to fall back on. They need to prove what you did caused the failure to void a warranty, at least in the US.
That, and the fact that there are a few, very few other frame manufacturers, makes this a question that can not be answered from the warranty standpoint with a definite yes or no. Forest River or the individual brand is going to tell you no, you can't, you'll void the frame warranty even though they are typically not the ones providing the frame warranty on a travel trailer or 5er. They have to tell you that. It comes from the legal department.
Now get ready for the fear mongering, frame twisting, no you can't at all landslide which is coming.
But you can. Now that you posted your model I am fairly certain its an LCI frame just buy their stuff. They have 3 pages of hitches and cargo platorms/bike racks you can buy as parts. If you use their stuff its going to be hard for them to give you any crap shoulkd a warranty issue come into play.
