IF you know a good welder they can custom make you a hitch that goes across the frame rails at the back.. BUT REMEMBER some states dont allow triple towing.
and watch your CGVW.

I had a welder/trailer manufacturer give me an estimate for a receiver hitch and it was about $350. Did not follow through with the hitch as I have a membership campground closeby and am renting a cart storage there. The cost was parts & labor to build crossbars on the frame and stay totally independent of the bumper. They said the frame mount was the only way to do it and they would not consider beefing the bumper supports for a bumper mount at all.

I do not believe that is true! Call Jayco and confirm. I have a hitch on mine, and I have no warranty issues.

Good info Chipper on the states that do not allow double towing. I knew Virginia didn't allow it.
