Dear RVGuy and SabreSam, et al
Since you are the only 2 factory reps that I know of who have identified yourselves as such I would like to make a suggestion for product improvement.
The issue is the strength and ability of the rear bumper to carry bigger loads. I am specifically referring to the ability to carry bicycles attached to the rear bumper. I know that some products you represent will have that ability, but since I address this to you, I am hoping that other brands, who may also be following this forum, will take note and offer this upgrade. I am fully aware that other consumers may want upgrades to other components in the RV, but this is one that seems to have garnered a lot of attention.
I understand the rationale for lightweight bumpers but it is quite evident from the numerous posts on this forum that a large number of consumers would like to have this upgrade. I am not an engineer but it cannot be too difficult to engineer and fabricate a worthy enough bumper to carry the load.
Lets see if this thread will get the feedback I think it deserves and will give you an indication that this is worthwhile to investigate. If I am wasting my breath and time, I can take that feedback as well.
