Your VERY MUCH more likely to experience problems with the bike rack you select and use then a class 3 sized receiver hitch welded to the trailer frame. Make sure the rack chosen is as robust and rigid as possible, carry as few bikes as possible, choose racks that have additional mechanical methods (bolts/shims) of preventing rack wobble when inserted in the receiver.
