The URRV is built onto a 2006 Ford E450 Superduty cutaway chassis and the correct model hitch is 65001.

Etrailer provides a nice instructional video showing one how to install this hitch. LINK
I pretty much followed the instructions in the video, no major issues except I did managed to break the drive shaft on my 30+ years old electric drill from Black and Decker. I supposed I did get my money's worth out of it over the last three decades or so. I was fortunate the breakage occured right as the hole was finished.
Note to self, when the instructions say use a 1/2" metal drill, make sure to do so. The multi-diameter drill bits I used worked but jammed easy, and those repeated jammings finally broke the drill's drive shaft.
It's quite heavy and unwieldy, this hitch, so I used a small jack to keep it suspended while I secured it with the provided bolts.
A view of the installed hitch, before I put the bumper back on.
Bumper went back on with no issues, it's secured by four nuts so no trouble except when one doesn't have a 21mm socket and has to use a wrench instead for the inner bolts. I did have a 21mm lug nut socket but it was too long for the inner bolts to allow movement by the socket wrench.
I then installed the motorcycle rack from Harbor Freight, nice and snug fit so I don't foresee much unwanted movement at that point. Had to use a soft blow hammer to encourage the locking pin into place so I could lock it in place.
The motorcycle rack installed.
Yagi on the motorcycle rack
Yep, the headlights are partially blocked. For now, am thinking that's OK as I don't like to drive the URRV when its dark. I may end up buying a set of snow plow lights if it becomes an issue.
Took her out for a short test ride, no issues, minimal movement seen. After I returned from the ride, I thought I'd use some straps to further support the ends of the rack. Instead, I remembered I'd previously bought a gadget that prevents the slight movement of the rack's tongue within the hitch receiver:
Much better now, no more "slight" movement

I'll be taking Yagi, the Yamaha TW200 Dualsport with me as shown above on the next camping trip and pulling the Aluma trailer with one of the Ural rigs loaded onto it. Let's see how that works out.
Update: Added a shot of the URRV with Yagi mounted to show how it blocks the headlights, especially the driver's side headlight. No night driving if I can help it!
Update Dec 11. Removed the muffler from Yagi, two 6mm Allen bolts and one 12mm Hex Bolt and pull off, easy peasy. This allows about same amount of left headlight to show through, as opposed to above picture. I'll put the muffler back on before riding Yagi of course.
