Don't know for sure, but I'd bet just enough to haul a stinky slinky. Most new camper bumpers aren't very heavy gauge and will bend or tear with much weight.

No more than 150 lbs. Both of our bumpers had a 150 lb rating. Would never put more than a stinky slinky it as jstromburg said.

Search the forum. Lots of discussion on back bumpers.

Pay the money to get a custom hitch made and welded into the frame

If your rig is still under warranty, call the manufacturer and ask them if your warranty will be voided, if you are thinking of putting on a hitch. I was told mine would be voided if I installed one to hold 380 lbs. My 5er is a 2009 CC.
