Bumper Capacity on the 250RB

Anyone know what the weight capacity is on the rear bumper of the Sunset Trail 250RB? I want to add a hitch adapter onto the rear bumper for a bicycle rack and to use for my flag pole.

I have a bumper hitch on mine but use eyescrews screwed into the corners of the trailer to stabilize the bikes from bouncing. I use ratchet straps and they do not move , thus not flexing the bumper.

Thanks for the pic! Looks like you reinforced the hitch to the camper at the back.

Yes , that helps to stop the twisting. If you buy a bolt on bumper hitch ,have a welder add a few inches to it and use angle brackets to attach to cross member on frame,if possible.
I just used a stock 12 " hitch receiver tube from princess auto (in canada)or possibly harbor freight there.

Thanks Harley for the reply. I too have been contemplating a bike rack on the rear bumper. Looks great!
