Trailer hitch and through axles

So I have an older style "Croozer" bike trailer I use regularly. My question is how can I continue to use this trailer with my new ride that happens to have Through Axle Tech?

I've tried pasting the image of what the hitch looks like but I guess I have to post at least 10 times before I'm allowed to paste an image....

But, if anyone has experience on what I can do, I'd appreciate any assistance.

Thx

I dont have through-axles but i do have a 14mm axle i decided not to use. So my hitch is bolted to the rear brake caliper mounts and a third bolt into the drop out.

This probably doesn't help you, as you have to modify/fabricate a custom hitch to fit it like that.
