There is too much flex and not enough strength to this type of bumper. Think about a frame mounted hitch and bike rack.
You are wrong.
None of FR trailers have aluminum bumpers.
I don't know of any TT that does.
The problem is the weak welds of the bumper and the bouncing and flexing of the bikes/rack.
They pull down and back on the bumper, over and over.
