Wolf Pup 16BHS - weight rating for rear bumper?


Does anyone know the weight rating for the rear bumper of a 2016 Wolf Pup 16BHS? I would like to add a
Swagman Two-inch Solid Steel Anti-rattle RV Bumper Bike Rack Adapter
Swagman Two-inch Solid Steel Anti-rattle RV Bumper Bike Rack Adapter - Overstock Shopping - Top Rated Swagman Bicycle Racks
so I can attach our 4-bike Rack to the back of the new TT. However, a couple of the bikes we have are pretty heavy weight. I just want to make sure the rear bumper and bikes are not dragging behind us somewhere down the freeway if I buy the Swagman Bumper Adapter. Any other ideas are appreciated. The adapters I have looked at and read reviews for are all around $30 but I haven't actually read about or found photos of someone using a 4-bike rack in the adapters. Our 4-bike carrier does have a 2" ball as well, we used to tow the pop-up while the bike carrier was attached to the Expedition (pop-up had bike carrier on top and then we had our 4 bike carrier). Now we will not have the carrier options and the bike carrier only has a Towing capacity 3000lbs, Tongue weight 300lbs. So I do not believe we can use it to tow the Wolf Pup (loaded).

Thank you in advance---- I prefer not to haul some of the bikes inside the camper as the boys bikes have been known to get pretty dirty/muddy and we do not clean them off until we get home so we can clean and dry them with ease.

Most likely about 10 pounds! You really never want to mount anything to that bumper. My spare tire is mounted to it and I don't even like that. The end caps on my bumper keep working their way out from the twisting.
