Default tow a fifth wheel style trailer with your jeep?

seen this video, and thought maybe you could do the same with a jeep, maybe use a ball mounted to the roll bar ?

A lot of things could be done, that doesn't mean it should be
Plus a custom trailer would be required and I don't see it being worth it
