Manufacturers: Come Clean

To all the corporate members on this forum. Give it to me straight. Is it possible to manufacture a light weight fiver or TT that can carry bikes on the rear bumper.

Brown, I've got to give you credit for trying.

I'll bet real money no one from FR takes you up and answers your question - no matter how good the question is.

Oil and water just don't mix.

Brown, my unit came with a bike rack/platform that has a rated
Capacity of 450 lbs.
I think its a much better deal than a receiver tube and a standard
Bike rack setup.
the weight is distributed over both frame members and the bumper.
I have yet to use it for anything but coolers full of beer but I do like it.
Best of all it was factory equipped and has a 450lb rating

Is your camper a light weight?

Never stated it was. Was just saying or meaning the light weights could benefit I believe
From the system used on mine. Sorry for the confusion
The flat style cargo carrier is much better than the bicycle
Carrier most commonly used with a receiver tube mounted to
The bumper.
Lower cog
Weight distributed over two frame rails and the entire bumper

At the Richmond RV show, we looked at a Wildwood that had the rear cargo rack......I think it was a Wildwood 241QB. On the website, it lists that as an X-Lite, and the rack is listed in options as a "Back Pack Rear Storage Rack".

Turbo, I remember seeing a weight rating sticker on the cargo rack, but I can't remember what it was.
