HI Sarah, welcome.

You will find that most folks on here do NOT recommend carrying anything on the bumper as its not designed to carry a load. You COULD have the bumper reinforced at a shop but that may impact your warranty.

I'm sure others will chime in with more detail.

Burgy, I believe she said it was a frame mount not a bumper mount. If it's properly installed, there should be no problems.

Reciever hitch install

Thank you all for the info. So as long as I install the Curt rv hitch to the I-beams that holds the bumper that's not to much weight for the rear end of the trailer. The tv that I use is a F-150 2014 3.73 rear end 5.0l V-8 super crew STX. This truck pulls the TT nicely. I'm not new to camping but I've had different rigs and this is my first CR's.

You should be fine if the Hitch is attached to the frame per manufacturer's instructions
