I have installed receivers on Scamps several times,and Scamp
offers them as an option, The frame is made of steel afterall!
If you do put a receiver on your Casita, just be sure and add an extra crossmember to the frame and attach the receiver to both the bumper and the new crossmember., Just attaching to the bumper allows too much flex.
I can't see why fiberglass would have any bearing on the choice.
Personally I think the back of a trailer is too abusive of a spot to carry bikes.... so make sure the receiver is attached securely.
Here's where we carry ours...
