Trailer hitch on columbus 320

The bumper looks pretty strong on the 320, they have the rack on there that says it holds 450 lbs so my question has anyone added a bumper hitch to their rig? Would be use to pull a golf cart on a trailer.

I wouldn't. I have always welded rectangular tubing to the frame and then a receiver tube to the added tubing

Just got a call back from forest river and they said on the 320 RS it has a 2000 lb rating, that's pretty good if you ask me... But I will wait till warranty is over first plus I do like the idea of beefing it up a bit anyway.

I have a 365rl and built a hitch for 80 that's on the rear- all 1/4 wall material.

This year I changed out the rear platform to hold more tube for wires and hose along with I tandem tow my jeep wrangler behind the camper. I also welded the hitch to the bumper tubes this year-

Keep in mind that most states do NOT allow a vehicle to tow more than 1 trailer...it is a ticketable offense with some hefty fines in all those states that do not allow. I would see what your states laws are and also the surrounding states if you head out of state before you start adding or welding another hitch.

Thanks for all the feedback, in Tenn you can double tow and its ok in most states just as long as you don't go over 65 ft total. But a good reminder if going through other states.
