Its Aero's design that has cross structure support.

It still relies on the single 2" tube mount in the center and that's where the slop is. Unless you add bolts in the collar of the 2" receiver to tighten the tube, the rack will still wobble from side to side, up and down and that is what breaks the trailer frames, bumpers, etc. Have yet to follow any racks on the back of rvs that don't bounce, etc.

Aero includes spring loaded anti-wobble bolts for the receiver slot as well as the center slide pole. But to your point, it is not as rigid as a dual receiver would be. But its not bad and the ability to slide out is really nice.

I have to "respectfully" disagree. I have a 9" x 2 1/2" rectangular and an 8" oval bumper sticker on mine and it seems to be riding just fine. I was thinking about a 3" round one as well, but didn't want to push my luck.

If you add straps from the top of the frame around the bumper and back into the bottom of the frame on both sides, you might be ok. Just make sure you use ss hardware so it doesn't rust.

Hahahah I don't know exactly why but this post made me chuckle. No disrespect, I just kept reading it in different voices and started laughing. Good choice and happy camping!

I agree with others. If there is a sticker that states not to, I wouldn't chance it. Is there any reason why you couldn't just put them inside your trailer? I would think that would be much safer and less prone to theft. Out of sight out of mind. Jerry

Or a front mounted hitch with the "Rack" of your choice?......

Hello,

Has anyone mentioned above the tank mount? The A Frame can handle the weight. Load in the trailer appropriately and there ya go.
