Semper 19RR, realizing that the rear bumper was inadequate, I reenforced it with a 2X6 behind the bumper, sitting on the 'shelf'. I also attached two D rings in the rear, half way up the corners, and by using tie down strap, I take most of the weight off the bumper. I only use a bike carrier and it has worked fine, so far, on three trip.

Happy camping!!

Also, do you carry anything other than bicycles like maybe one of those flat mesh gorilla racks?
Semper19RR,

My rear bumper is channel steel that I found to be very strong. I mounted a spare tire carrier to mine and have no fear of it failing.

Hey just registered today. Picked up a used 2012 19RR Grey Wolf last week. Spent $11000.00 Thought that was fair price. I hope to learn a lot from this forum. My maine concern is getting my HD Ultra Classic up the ramp. It appears to be very steep. I have not tried it yet as my bike is still under blankets and storage. If this dang Indiana weather starts to warm soon I will get the chance. Any way Hello Everybody!!

Congratulations, nice buy and welcome to the forum. I hope you find it as helpful as I have. I have a 2012 21RR (also bought used) and am here to help you anyway I know how. As far as the ramp, just use the search function several good ideas here. I made a 4' x 3' ramp out of scrap aluminum (called diamond tread (not plate)) and hinged from the back edge of the ramp with heavy duty strap hinges. I have 11" blocks that set the back edge of the ramp on, which lessens the angle at the top of the ramp (ramp to floor), when the ramp extension is folded to the ground. There are other ways to get it done. It is possible, to jack the tongue all way up, which lessens the angle. I just don't like raising and lowering it to load or unload the bike. Clint
