Hello from Red Deer alberta

Hi everyone,this is first thread for me. We just purchased and waiting for delivery of 2013 8280ws diamond 5th wheel. Just wondering does anyone know of weight restriction on rear bumper as we want to attach a 2 bike rack to it. It already will have spare tire attached. Any problems?

Hi and welcome to the forums! You are wise to inquire about adding a bike rack to the bumper. I can't speak for every unit but from previous discussions it seems that some RV bumpers does not support the weight of a bouncing bike well. Others members with more experience should be chiming in.

BTW - congrats on your new RV!
