Default Towing tricks with the ol girl...

I'd like to get a trailer hitch for my 99 L Wagon so I can tow my bike (Honda XR600R, maybe another 250 or 450) and camping gear. I know old girl is no Chevy 3500 but was hoping to get some tips or even modification suggestions that could make towing something like that easier and/or possible with a small car like that.
The car has 178k miles but recently changed all struts, brakes, rear diff fluid and tires and I've towed a few trailers since I could drive so I have experience with trailers.
Appreciate any input!

It's an automatic. The manual says 1500 lbs total. My bike weighs 300 lbs, trailer about the same plus 100-200 of gear...by the numbers I should be good I guess I'm hoping to get input from someone who's towed with their impreza
