Mabe build a quick dissconnect wheelie bar so you can take it off to pull a trailer.
Or build it 6-7 inches above the hitch so a trailer can be pulled with the wheelie bar on.

Have the wheelie bar extend out a few feet, and have it wider than the rear of the chassis so the wheels touch out in the middle of the rear wheelbase. That way you still have some room for the trailer tongue to pivot.

Build the wheelie bar to do what you need, then add a hitch to the top of it. It will move the trailer back some, but should be fine. The wheelie bar sounds like it is just to keep the tractor from going over backwards not for show or racing, so it does not have to be very long, 12-18 " should work and still keep the trailer close enough to trail decent.

Ok i had this ideas after watching a video of a mower doing wheelies.

The green bar will hit the tongue of the trailer and help stop a flip over but will still give a good range of motion. Very Happy
