New to this forum,

Hello Everyone, I have a 2015 Sunset Trail 25rb, I was wondering if the bumper will hold the weight of a bike rack with 4 bikes on it, I currently have the spare tire and the grill shelf back there.

Any thought would be very helpful.

Thanks

I wouldn't do it unless you have gussets welded onto the existing bumper and plates welded on the side. The bumper in thin wall metal that cannot support the cantilever load that bikes / racks put onto the structure.

I have seen pictures of the bumper pulled out of the frame and bike parts all over the road. Have not seen it in person but have heard many horror stories.
