I am also considering installing a frame mounted receiver on my fiver but wondered if anyone had noticed any difference in the way the rig handles due to this weight hanging off the rear? I have receiver mounted cargo thing that I have used to carry a generator and I can definitely notice when I have it on my truck!

Keystone does have a bike rack option. I don't know if they would have one to fit your trailer or not. You could ask them. Here is a picture I took at a RV show last year.

CW I believe this one is not available anymore. They offer the fold up one now on most models.
That particular slide out model was not one of Keystone's better ideas. Very flimsy attaching brackets. Mine bent rather badly with only lawn chairs and the spare tire on it. I determined the culprit was the spare tire hanging "way out there" and oscillating as we went down the road.JMO

You're right, at least on the Cougar line. My 2018 Cougar 32RLI had the "new" fold-down rack on back (the spare tire was mounted underneath on a BAL "Hide A Spare"), and then my new 2019 Cougar 34TSB has a 2" hitch with a 300 pound capacity that is welded directly to the frame.

Bike Hitch

If you have a bike rack that you use on your hitch receiver then consider installing a front receiver hitch to carry them. I go down the road with two bikes on front, two kayaks on the roof pulling 5th wheel, oops! I mean a 5'ver
