Question for Scamp 5th Wheel owners

Do most Scamp 5th wheels have a rear receiver for towing? I see on the web site that a 2" receiver is an option for a bike rack, but what about for towing, like say a boat? The boat is not huge, but 1000 to 2000 pounds. Here in AZ we can double tow with a 5th wheel, just not sure if a Scamp can handle it. Thanks for any help.

I'm not a Scamp owner but given the recent postings on the Scamp Forums about the axles and tires being near their limits and all the common problems they are experiencing. I doubt the Scamp 5er is a good choice for double tows.
