Adding a hitch

I have a hw296. I know itís one of the few pop ups that has a full frame. Has anyone added a hitch? If so what have you towed with it?

If you're talking about putting it on the rear of the popup, DON'T do it.
Popups have ultralight frames. Simply putting stabilizers down can tweak the frame.
I know as I've owned two of them.

The HW296 is one of a few pop ups that has a full boxed frame like a bumper pull. Itís also one of the few that the factory allows WDH to be installed and not void any warranties. Most pop ups cans have a WDH. I was just wondering since itís a tandem axel trailer full boxed frame of you could?

My BR28TSC also has a boxed frame as it's a toy-hauler so it needs the heavier frame.
I'm currently in the process of adding/welding a 2" receiver w/1.5" angle iron support(s) to mine. (pic shows my plan)
Going to add a cargo carrier to the back so I can haul a storage trunk to carry all my misc camping gear used for set-up and general "gotta-have" items to open up space in the back of my truck.

My issue(s) is simple. When I'm hauling BOTH ATV's my storage capacity is very limited as they completely fill-up the space on my front cargo deck. This option will hopefully cut down the organization and packing/unpacking time.
