Im not sure why you welded your trailer hitch to the frame, there is no reason to.
I think the point isn't you cant weld to the frame, but that if you say you can then people who shouldn't be welding something so important weld the **** out of the middle section of the frame and weaken it.
I specify the middle of the frame as it is most likely to crack there.
IMO there is not a good reason to weld to a vehicle frame other than laziness.
