    Make sure you mount it in well. A V box empties from front to back so when you are almost empty all the weight will be a the very back.

    maybe you can fab a bracket to slip into the hitch to handle the overhang. as previously stated
    really needs to be strapped down

    as it empties it will get way to heavy on the back you could maybe block out the back 2 feet
