Default ascender trailer hitch

I recently started to make a trailer for one of the crawlers. after some thinking i decided to use the ascender as the trailer hauler. soon after starting i knew i would need a hitch so this is what i came up with.
using the end of the frame rails should make it strong enough for pulling.

i hooked the trailer up and looks to have a good amount of pivot angle all around. more so L/R but that's how it should be.
