Default utility carrier ??? can it be installed on a 169x

I'm thinking of installing a utility carrier to the back of my 160x FF for carrying light weight 'stuff' like sewer hoses, garbage, etc. in plastic totes. Has anyone attached a 2 inch reciever so a carrier can be put on the back of the trailer???...if so could you share this information, I'd really appreciate it

You have to make sure that the framing in the back is stout enough to bear the load -- watch out for metal fatigue. On my X-139, the frame would not be sufficient.

I decided to to go with this... Reese 44531 Class III-IV Custom-Fit Hitch with 2" Square Receiver opening, includes Hitch Plug Cover ... it will (hopefully) spread the weight for this...53 x 19 in. Steel Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier...
nothing heavy will be carried on this and the frame material on the trailer seems quite strong
just need a place to put the sewer hoses and other light odds and ends that would take up space in the truck or trailer
thanks for your response
