Scooter Rack

I have a question about a scooter rack.

I just bought a scooter rack but havenít had a chance to use it yet. I bought one that hold 2 scooters. I have a 2001 Class A Dolphin.

I have 2 Yamaha Zumaís, each weighs 200 lbs and the rack weighs 75lbs. My receiver is rated for 500 lbs.

Iím a little nervous, I only plan on taking 1 scooter with me this upcoming weekend just to try it out. I want to take both of them but dont want to have any issues.
The rack itself is very heavy duty and I feel very comfortable with the rack itself, Itís the receiver and the idea of hanging 475 lbs off it that concerns me.
I have looked over the receiver and everything looks really good, very strong and capable of doing what it says it can do.

Has anyone had any problems or issues? Do you need to do any modifications to your MH to use a scooter rack?

Probably the same as yours, my hitch is rated for 500 tongue and 5000 pull weight. I am not bragging, but it pulls my enclosed trailer just fine. Loaded with 4 ATV's, 2 dirt bikes and sometimes our Zuma scooter it weighs in around 5500lbs with a tongue weight of 600-650lbs. I was just under the rv the other day looking it over, hitch too, all looked good.
