Storage Racks

Any experience with the storage racks that go on the 4" square bumper at the back of travel trailer or the ones that mount on the front A frame over the propane tanks ? Looking for options to carry my gas cans and generator.
Thanks,
Tom

I saw the stromburg a frame rack just recently that sits over the propane bottles....pretty neat and probably the ONLY rack you can add to a tt...

I actually have a rack for the rear bumper buts its NEVER used to haul stuff. ..I only ever use it after setup to hold stuff off the ground....and even then no more than 100lbs

The 4" bumpers arent made for nothing really...heck im surprised the spare has not twisted it yet...lol....If u MUST rack your trailer do it on the tongue or add a truck toolbox type setup behind the propane.....

sent from fat fingers via a space dish thing with no regard to grammer.

The rack on our Chaparral,still isn't here,has a tag on it claiming 450# limit.It's attached to the frame in the back and looks hell for stout.Hope so.There's going to be a tool box and genny on it.I hope any way.

absolutely correct. I made the mistake of putting my extra firewood on the rack. Hadn't driven more than 20 miles before someone was driving by me pointing to the rear of my camper....I pulled over and the damn rack was almost rubbing the street.

Good thing I had strong tie downs....that firewood would have caused someone some serious damage to their vehicle.

While searching my options, I saw a receiver hitch I could mount on the front of my Suburban and put a fold down rack in the receiver. I could carry my gen and gas there. My concern would be the air getting to the radiator for my engine. anyone has experience with this set up?
Thanks, Tom
