HL Sundance receiver hitch install in rear

Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to this site but I'd like to know if this can be done. I'd like to install a receiver hitch on the back of my HL Sundance in order to bring my tracked power chair. The hitch would need to hold over 500 pounds. The combined weight of the chair and the carrier is 500 pounds.
Can this be done?
Thank you in advance for your time

I think you'll have to have a good weld shop access the frame ends to see if it can be done. I'd be hesitant to add that much weight so far back from the rear axles of the trailer. The 'bounce' and sudden up and down movement will put far more than 500 lbs. force on the receiver. You might look to adding 2 receivers, one at each frame rail end to double the support and reduce twisting on one hitch receiver.
