I don't trust the bumper at all unless you have a welder/fabricator beef it up a ton. On our hybrid the dealer welded a rectangular piece parallel to the bumper - between the bumper and the unit. They then welded a square to the bumper and that piece.
On our current TT, the dealer welded on a whole hitch that kind of looks like a T.
I've had family members follow us and say it doesn't bounce back there but I don't really believe them. The good news is that the rack has been solid for at least 7 years - I forgot when I bought it but I know it was pre DD.
