If your hitch is rated to tow anything over 2000 lbs you can probably get away with carrying 200lbs. We haul a mower on a hitch we mounted on our 2012 Honda CRV. Never had an issue. If your hitch is solid, I believe you will be fine.

I had two different pleasureways both mounted on Dodge 3500s and never had a problem with the hitch weight. I hauled heavy loads of firewood on a hitch haul

I have a 1997 Xplorer (Dodge 3500) and use a hitch hauler to haul deer out after a successful hunt. No problems up to 300 lbs.
