RE: Extending Camper Tounge?

I think I may have messed up and posted this in the wrong section. I'm a newbie with RV'ing so please excuse me if so! My camper is a tow behind camper (Riverside Retro) and my towing vehicle is a F-150 SuperCrew. My boat is a small 10' bass boat that I slide in the bed of the truck. My camper has a dry weight of about 2500 lbs. I'm worried about adding "Hitch Extensions" due to them compromising my hitch tounge weight capacity. With that said, instead of extending the hitch and putting more pressure on the tounge, I was considering extending the front trailer hitch by a few feet using some square tubing or C-Channel. (I have a 240v stick welder.)

Extending Camper Tounge?

I have a 10' Bass Raider boat with a little 4 horse and do a ton of fishing, nearly 3-days a week and love the convenience of throwing the little bass boat in the bed of my 6.5' Super-Crew, obviously with some over-hang. Now that we got the kiddo, and take a camper with us, I don't have enough clearance to turn. I need at least another 3'. Obviously adding extensions or stacking extensions would be too dangerous and add too much stress on the tounge. I'm thinking cutting my RV frame and re-welding a longer tounge is going to be my only option... Anyone had this problem? If so, what did you use? C-channel? Tubing? Angle? Obviously the cost of metal is through the roof right now, but I don't want to cheap out on safety.
