Bumper Bike Rack

I have a 2020 wildwood xlite 273qbxl and wanted to see if it is safe to mound a bike rack on the bumper.

If you do a forum search, you will find that most don't recommend it. It all depends on how well your bumper is welded to the frame.

Moved thread to the Wildwood sub-forum since the OP is asking for model-specific information.

Front mount assumes you have extra capacity for your tongue weight thou, right?

We have that very bike mount on our Surveyor and it works very well! No need to worry about your bikes "bouncing" off the back bumper.

I doubt that rack is capable of two Ebikes.
What Ebikes weigh only 50lbs each? Most weigh more than that.
