    Have a 2006 Fleetwood Niagara an I recently lost my back bumper. I can't find one so gonna have to get a welder to make me one. If anyone has one that can can send some pics with some measurements so I can put the pegs about in the right place for the bunk end supports. I really appreciate it.

    Woah! The cargo rack tore off the bumper? Hope it didn't cause a wreck!

    This what can happen when cargo racks and bike racks are attached to the reap bumpers without being properly tied into the main frame rails..

    I saw a post on FB in one of the camping groups last week about people who had picked up a cargo rack and storage totes that had fallen off the back of someones trailer..

    Just a thought but if you put paper along where your bumper would be you could with help from a friend put your bunk out like your setting up and someone draw on the paper where the pegs go? On the underside of my bunk are the poles that would stick on the pegs I'm sure it's the same way for the Niagra. Good luck. Good luck.

    Another reason not to hang anything from a factory bumper. Just think, some Pups bunk end support poles attach to that flimsy piece of metal.

    Wow. Lucky it didn’t kill someone. Those bumpers are weak

    Ask them to return it to the op?

    All kidding aside, it shouldent take much to make a bumper.
