Swagman RV 2" Bumper Adaptor& 2014 3011DS

I'm considering utilizing the Swagman RV 2" bumper adaptor on my 2014 3011DS to carry two bikes. However, I would like to hear if anyone has encountered bumper failure with the added weight/stress placed on the bumper. I may just opt to utilize a roof rack on the TOAD for the bikes

I considered going that route but I instead went with the Roadmaster adapter instead: Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 4" Drop/Rise Roadmaster Accessories and Parts RM-077-4

I just got it in so I haven't tested it but this thing is a beast. We have a 4 bike carrier and our small car that we tow. The hitch is rated for 7000 pounds and the roadmaster adapter for 10,000 pounds.

The bumper of the coach has a great mount to the chassis but the square tube of the bumper looks to be a light gauge maybe 20, so I feared ripping the bumper tube right off the brackets.
