pulling double

I am a class "A" driver and I would like to install a hitch on the back of my 2014 wildcat max 5th. I plan to pull a 16' flat bed trailer with sand rail behind 5th.
My question is; has anyone added a hitch to their 5th and whats the pros n cons.

Since it's Maxx, I would call the Dallas Oregon plant and see if the frame is strong enough to handle pulling a trailer behind it. Where are you located? If you decide to do this setup, just make sure you check all the regs for each state you are traveling through. Oregon and Washington it's not allowed. I know there are some states that the lead trailer has to be a fifth wheel. Meaning, it can't be a gooseneck or a bumper pull. There are also different length restrictions per state. Good luck!

Thanks for your reply. I will be within regulations of California and Nevada. I won't be pulling 2 trailers general camping in other states.
I plan on building a complete sub frame under existing frame however I will definitely contact plant for further reassurance or the bad news of don't even try it.thanks again

Just realize that such a mod may void the frame warranty.
