Factory hitch on 3121RL

How much weight can the factory hitch on the Montana 20th Anniversary 3121RL handle? I am trying to tow a small trailer with a golf cart. Will it be able to handle the weight?

There should be a sticker on the pin box with it's ratings on it. Does your trailer have a factory rear receiver hitch with a plug for tail lights? If so, it will also have a sticker showing max tow weight. If that's the case then your hitch is already rated to tow that weight in addition to itself as long as you are within the posted GVWR weight.

Towing a small trailer behind my fifth wheel

My hitch that came on the trailer has nothing on it concerning weight nor
is it wired for lights. it is a 16ft open trailer just big enough for my golf cart.
Right now my wife and I are driving two different vehicles and would like to ride together.

i crawled up under the trailer and found a sticker said it was rated for 200 lbs
and i guess that means hitch weight. which my trailers hitch would not be 200 lbs.
then it is a case of how much I can pull. trailer being 900 lbs and the golf cart about 700. total 1600

Then your trailer isn't really rated for towing a 2nd small trailer. What year is your 5er? Is it still under structural warranty? I'm not sure what to tell you about your pin box rating since there are so many different ones. You might try to find a stamp of some kind that might identify which one it is and see if you can look up a spec.

Here's the sticker on my rig, which is lighter than yours
