On the back of my ParkLiner there is a receiver and I spoke with Chandler the manufacturer and he said its rated for 200lbs. I got a reese polypropylene cargo carrier(about 35lbs), cut about 6" or so off the 2" square pipe for a closer fit and added a truck bed storage box to it. I keep 2 hoses, 2 extention cords, a hose nozzle, and the awning and hardware(tent stakes, the elbow joints ropes etc) in it.

I added my rocket stove for grilling... but in my front shower I carry a 7 gallon jug of water, the B@L leveler and my 90+lb generator... my tongue weight is about 260lbs so its pretty well balanced a little over 10% of my trailer loaded weight. I also travel with a full 15 gallons of water since I boondock. I am thinking about getting a cedar 2x8 and adding it behind the propane cylinders on the tongue so I can lash the 5 gallon jug of gasoline on the tongue vs carrying it in the trunk of my rav4.

There is someone on the casita forum that custom makes trailer receivers if your bumper mount isn't strong enough.

I used a tongue box over top of 2 11# tanks and a battery box. Designed it to hinge at the front and lock the tanks and battery.
Adding a tongue box
Revision 3 would involve some minor changes involving a shorter tongue box.
