Will Bumper Mounted Bike Rack Damage 5th Wheel Bumper


I read your response on a bike rack. I am well under the 75 ilbs but there is a spare tire also attached. If I scooted one to one side the other to the other side, would that be ok? This RV is a new keystone 31ft 5th wheel and the bumber looks pretty solid. Nothing in the specs that would help. thoughts?


Expert Reply:

RV bumpers that are square with all for sides continuously welded are technically a part of the trailer's chassis and can carry a decent amount of weight. Installing the Swagman Around the Spare part # S80501 with your spare would not be an issue at all. As long as you stay under the capacity for the carrier (which you said you are currently) you will be totally fine. I attached a review video link to this page for you to check out as well.
