    91635091-6BE2-4361-B60C-E2ECCA245619.jpeg I wanted desperately to have a bike rack but I don’t want to touch my 96’ Coleman ABS roof. So I decided to have a friend make me a bumper complete with a 2 inch receiver to hold my bike rack on the back of the trailer. Woo hoo!

    Looks good. I hope that you reinforced/ replaced everything from the frame back, as popup bumpers aren't strong enough to hold much weight, and from what I can see he did.

    Super job, I'm sure it will work well. Just keep in mind that you will be reducing your tongue weight with the increase in weight ( x distance from axle). But, if you keep it all within reason, you should be able to enjoy those bikes easily. Nice work!
