Yes. You need to install a receiver that's bolted to the frame of the trailer. But if the underside at the back of your trailer is covered with an insulated cover, then you must remove that cover in order to see the frame. Be nice to the cover when you remove it, then plan to glue it back on using construction glue such as Liquid Nails.
Lots of TTs don't have enough frame at the back of the trailer to install a receiver hitch. However, DO NOT
be tempted to bolt the receiver to the rear bumper of the trailer, In that case, your local farmer's welding (blacksmith) shop will need to extend the frame and reinforce it so it can handle the weight of your
cargo carrier. The receiver needs to have a weight-carrying (WC) weight rating of at least 500 pounds, but no need to have a class IV receiver with a weight-distributing weight rating. Some RV shops can also add a receiver to the tail end of a TT, but I prefer to use the experienced welders at a blacksmith shop that caters to farmers and ranchers.
