Squiddy, the yellow sticker is the official GVWR. If it has a weight sticker stating weight it left the factory that may be accurate for an unloaded weight, maybe not.
When someone tells me something can't be done I find a way it can. I have the Curt bracket in your picture on my Roo mounted tube on top. I am confident in the bumper and the attachment used. I have also hauled a full 60qt cooler on this setup as well. This same bracket and rack have now been on 3 different hybrid trailers. I have yet to rip off a bumper, bend a frame, void a warranty, or cause the apocalypse.
You need to be able to, or have someone who is able if you're not, evaluate the connection, welds, main frame rail construction, and thickness/gauge of the bumper tube along with the weight you intend to carry. You may have to add some reinforcement. Some add a full blown receiver hitch A little common sense helps also.
