Motorcycle carrier

09 Cougar 278rks 1/2 ton series.

Wanting to carry 330lbs on back of 5er. Thinking of replacing the factory slide out cargo/spare tire carrier with a motorcycle type.

Has/can this be done?
Can the frame handle this weight?
Handling while towing 5er?

tv; 04 Silverado 2500hd 4x4 6.0L

I'm not sure what all that weight so far back would do to the frame and balance of the trailer. One of our members had a post in THIS THREAD on how he takes his GOLDWING along. You might want to take a look. Hope this helps, Hank
