Weight is weight. It dosen't matter if it is a couple bikes or a box full of gear. The problem is the reciever cargo hitches are a fulcrum on the bumper of the trailer. I though about doing this when I first bought my trailer but have had second thoughts since then. I had a similar setup on an ATV and it caued too many issues. I am however quite certain that I could fabricate a carrier that would work. The frame would have to be reinforced, etc. Just not worth it in the long run and I would prefer to keep my frame warranty intact.

On another note. It is very common to see the "triple tows" here in my state of Wyoming. Personally I would not do it, but many do

Thanks for the input guys. The setup on my toy hauler is a little different that the picture. The bumper is about 2 x 8 and it is welded directly to the frame, while there are three other mounts where it is screwed to the bumper and the spare tire mechanism is attached to it. It's on pretty solidly. I will keep an eye on the welds and screws to let you know how they do.

That is a "typical" toy hauler bumper. Mine is very similar on my 19rr as well as my previous toy haulers. They are more substantial than a regular travel trailer bumper.
