Hung a two bike rack on the lite but I took the spare tire and mount off, hauled the spare in the bed.

Bought this one.

Went from Idaho to South Dakota to The Grand Canyon and back with out an issue.

But that is my unit, are there any stickers on the bumper of your unit?

Mine is rated to 300#, at a 100 pound rating a spare is all I would keep back there.

Have you thought about a front mounted bike rack?

Will do some checking and removing my spare to the trailer or tow vehicle would not be a problem.

Most ultralight trailers have bumpers with thin metal and weak welds.

Loly50, this is very hot topic on the forum. I suggest you do a search on "bike rack" and you'll have reading material for over a week on that one topic.

Lots of good advice about making sure your bumper will handle it but also make sure you find a good quality bike rack that is suitable for RV use. Several years ago I was researching the same thing and found that a lot of bike rack manufactures say "not for use on RV's" at the time we bought a Swagman brand and it has held up well.
