Fiat Ducato Sundance/mobility scooter/towbar

We Have a Fiat Ducato Sundance 590RL 2.8d `Y` reg.
We bought our motorhomealmost 2 years ago and the tow bar to my knowledge has been on the vehicle forsome years prior. I want to fit a small manufactured platform which will carry adequately amobility scooter for my wife which weighs just 86k. The platform can carry 145k.The tow bar which has no plate on it that I can see runs under the vehicle120-140cm is an `H` frame double bolted & welded to the underside. Even the tow ball plate is welded, I am ableto carry max 3400k & after the weight calculations I have 680k spare thatwith habitational weights deducted as well. The supplier says I need to checkthe `ball` weight before commencing which is impossible to check. Im inclinedto think the tow bar is fully adequate. Has anybody any thoughts or suggestionsplease the platform weighs 7k. I have uploaded a couple photos which may help.
