    Sounds like the hitch accessory max for the standard Model X hitch is 120 lbs even though the tongue weight max is 500. I absolutely understand the physics of why this would be the case. My question is: Does this apply to most other vehicles and designs of hitches, or specific to the Model X factory hitch?

    It would apply to any hitch, although the numbers might be different

    Sounds good. Any idea where I can find a good resource on this? I'm trying to let people in my ebike group know about this, because there is a surprising amount of people doing two heavy ebikes on their hitch of a small SUV, some with just a CLASS I hitch.

    The 120lb limit is due to the removable hitch on the MX. Regular hitches have much more reasonable weight limits.
