An example of why I don’t follow RVs with rear bumper mounted bike racks.

Get behind a car hauler and watch the loaded vehicles, another I won't drive behind.

I must add in that the inside of the "bumper" is not painted more than a few inches from each end. If that.


Most I've seen aren't painted at all when installed on an RV. I painted mine using a very short paint roller. It worked really good.

Most trailer bumpers are junk.
I know this is not a "for sale" site, but I do have a bumper off a motorhome that is of heavier gauge steel and would be able to hold any amt of bikes you want to mount to it.
If you are in Ga and want to pick up one it is off a Ford chasis, but you could do a little welding to mate it to any trailer frame...
I am not trying to sell it, but if it will help your endevors then contact me
