Towing behind an Eagle

Have or do any Jayco owners tow behind your Eagle 5er's? I just purchased a 321RSTS and they call the receiver an accessory receiver and I am wondering why a golf cart couldn't be pulled behind it when the hitch looked the same as whats on the HT's?

I think if you look under it will not be attached to the frame. It's a light weight hitch.
Check you local laws on towing a second trailer. NM has a 65ft over all length, 5th wheel must have brakes, 3 unit under a certain weight. I have been looking into a welded Class 3 or 4 hitch to pull a small trailer with two ATV's or my M/C. Some states do not allow this combination & I believe CA requires a special license.

Edd I looked at the Jayco HT series 5er sitting beside of mine when I purchased it and they seem to be welded the same also every piece looks identical between the two. The HT is rated to pull 3000lbs with 300 hitch wt, the Eagle just has a 300lb hitch wt..

No hitch with mine, I'll have a local weld shop install it as he's done several jobs for me at reasonable prices. Small RV shop here sent me to him for the 5W hitch install. Check your home state laws on the issue.
