Can my camper bumper hold my bike?

Recommended Posts

I want to install a hitch with a bike carrier to transport my bike. I've had mixed opinions about saying that it's ok and others saying that it will tear off my bumper and make the camper weight uneven. I ride a 2017 yz250f and it weighs about 222 pounds. Any help is appreciated IMG_1419.JPGIMG_1054.JPG

Yea I thought about a camera in the rear to monitor bike incase it falls off and I don't feel it. I don't just my truck to pull camper I use my 4Runner bc it has more room for family and more comfortable and less miles and hauls better even though it's just a v6 And it's 7 pin set so I use the brake controller which truck doesn't have

Rig something up and load it up with sand bags equal to the weight of the bike. Drive around on some rough-ish roads and see how the trailer survives.

Unless you have a competent welder do extensive($$$$) undercarriage work don't even think about hanging a bike on that wimpy "bumper". And I'd bet most welders will turn you down. There is no product made with cheaper, low quality construction than a travel trailer. Any brand.
