Receiver Hitch and Meat Smoker

Soon to be full timers we are trying to figure out a way to haul our 250 pound smoker on our receiver hitch while still pulling a toad. One major problem that we foresee is that we won't be able to turn!! (just a minor irritation!) Or to modify the platform that our smoker sits on so it is high enough not to interfere with turning. Has anyone ever done this? If so I would love some ideas, hints or any other great advice!! Thanks a ton!!

We are also contemplating being on the road full time in June 2014. We have a Traeger smoker at our stick house that we love. Here's a link to a small version of our Traeger that we're considering for the coach. Traeger Grills - PTG (BBQ020 )

Much lighter than 250 pounds!

If the toad has a receiver, then haul the smoker on the receiver hitch of the toad. If the toad doesn't have a receiver, then add one. Class III 2" Receivers with 500 pounds weight-carrying capacity are available for almost all toads. For example, if your toad is a 2010 Honda CR-V, here's a receiver with at least 500 pounds WC capacity that will bolt on:
Rigid Class III, 2 inch Receiver Hitch R3-0382

Another, if your toad is a new Ford Escape:
Draw-Tite Class III, 2 inch Receiver Round Tube Hitch 75758
