Few weeks ago I was talking to someone with a Aliner and I mentioned how the only downside to the Forest River hard sided pop ups was having no receiver on the back end. He said that the receiver they put on the Aliners is so flimsy that he would never put anything on it. I think he also mentioned the weight limit is like 80 or 90 lbs. I wouldn't even consider putting a bike rack with my two bikes on it (Good rack is 25-30lbs and my all mountain is 35lbs and the other 24-25lbs. So 90 lbs right there).
We then proceeded to look at it and it is pretty much the same bumper as the Forest River with a receiver tied right into it. If it had extra bracing it may be ok, but I would not be able to trust it.
I also talked to the dealer about this and they said any frame modifications will void the frame warranty.
