tow bar & bike rack install

heres my "set up" for towing the Escape. I have a dual receiver, 12" extension and the Blue Ox tow bar. top of the extension is the bike rack.
I was thinking about having the extension welded to the dual receiver, I got a guy that welds.
the Blue Ox is about level with the Escape. I towed the Escape only this past weekend and it went smooth, didn't really feel it back there. The brake buddy worked fine.

If sway, left right movement of the extended hit should occur, I suggest adding two more receivers under the coach, at least 2' from center. Then have extended bars make a block U shape so to bolt the center extended hitch to the crossmember to add support.
