2016 Mini Lite 2306 Bumper Capacity

Hey campers! I have a Rockwood Mini Lite 2306. Does anyone have the spec for the weight capacity of the bumper? It came from the factory with a spare mounted to it. I have added after market bumper support “U” brackets bolted to the rear of the camper frame to assist with the weight of an RV bike rack. The set up has worked great for years, but the last trip I was not 100% confident in it. I’m curious what the limit is. Thanks.

Officially the weight limit on the stock bumper is 0.0. Thats from the Rockwood/Forest river. How they get away putting the spare tire on there is I guess the advantage of being the ones building the trailer. Do as I say, not as I do....

There is no weight capacity for the bumper, except for the spare.
The bumper metal is thin and the welds weak.
