Default tow hitch motor bike carrier

Looking at a tow hitch mounted motor bike carrier. Any body had experience with these? Ive heard uncorroberated accounts of gen3+ rear ends bending due to towing too much. I suspect its more urban myth from the live axle separate chassis brigade.

I have however seen the odd ute or two with bent chassis which is usually related to overloading behind the axle, airbags and or over driving.

So i have a 120kg bike. Maybe add 30kg for mount. A little outboard of a typical trailer mount thats rated at 250k download. Need I be concerned?
