28RDB bumper hitch


I'm looking to put a receiver hitch on the back of my 28RDB 5th Wheel. The total weight I want to support will be about 220 pounds. Unfortunately, my bumper is only rated for 70 pounds.

I'm getting a surrey! It's sort of like a 4-wheeled, side-by-side tandem, electrically assisted pedal cart. It weighs about 180 pounds, and the carrier is maybe 30 pounds and fits in a standard receiver hitch. I've seen some bolt-on hitches, but the weight is still a problem.

Any ideas? My thinking is that the ladder is obviously rated for at least 300 pounds, the probably-maximum weight of a typical user. I'm picturing a sort of Rube Goldberg deal using a guy wire, bungee or something hooked to the ladder, taking some of the weight off the bumper. Unfortunately - the ladder is solidly over on the left side, which would probably set the load balance off pretty badly.
