    The cheapest and most long-lasting option would be pick up a used Semi 5th wheel and mount it. The drawback is they are heavy. You can usually find them around $300 or so on facebook marketplace if you look hard enough but it will never wear out with the weight you'd be carrying.

    Buying a good plate mount 5th wheel will be easily over $1-2k if you go for one of those little commercial-rated ones that aren't a cheap RV hitch.
