Trailer towing for 500 Sport

Hi, I have a 2013 Sport with a pretty solid Type 1 hitch. I'd like to get a small trailer and tow a dirt bike (think KTM 500, etc). Has anyone done anything similar?

I think you will be fine, but try to check the tow rating of your car for peace of mind. Remember that the towing capacity of a class I hitch is 2000 lbs and its tongue weight is 200 lbs. You might need also a weight distribution system like the blue ox towing if you are going to tow a heavier trailer.
