No, I'm talking about the reciever on the vehicle. At 500ish pounds, plus the weight of the versahauler itself, you are close to max or over on rated tongue weight, which, as I stated, is 750 BEST CASE, because that weight is way frurther back than a trailer ball. Now, that being said, industry standard for weight ratings (lifting devices, anyway) is to test 2X what the rated load is. So there IS cushion, sure, and like I said, you'd probably be fine. Add rough bumps, though, which magnify the torque effect, and you might not be. Me, I'd buy a ramp.
