I'm heading to GA(700 miles) for a large military meet, at an off road park. Not driving my big trucks, wife wouldn't go then. So I built a carrier on the back of the 5th wheel camper to take mower with me!

I had already replaced the wimpy rear bumper on the camper with a heavy gauge 4in square tubing. Welded on a reese receiver for a cargo carrier, or to tow a trailer, and two eye bolts for safety chains. Old bumper was installed on top of new one, for poop hose storage.

Then installed a cargo carrier. It's rated at 500 pounds, think mower is around 350. But way too small to fit mower on. So I built a carrier for the mower out of old truck frame rails, that sits on top of the rear bumper, and sits on the cargo carrier. Got it all welded and bolted on, then drove tractor on.

Here's a video, and pics.
