Hitch carry weight

We recently purchased a 2018 Honda CR-V Touring model. I am a totally disabled male senior citizen, who wants to install a hitch carrier to our vehicle to haul my 167.5 lb power wheel chair. the hitch carrier that would work on our vehicle, with a swing-away feature weighs 120 lbs, which would bring the weight on the hitch to 287.5 lbs. But, I can't find any information from Honda engineering, that lets me know if the vehicle can handle that weight. The owner's manual is useless, stating that the maximum tongue weight is 10% of the towing weight which is only 1,500 lbs. So, according to that info the maximum hitch weight would be 150 lbs, which means I couldn't even stand on the hitch. That info just can't be right. I need info from a knowledgeable engineer to help me with this problem.
