Will any of these aftermarket bumpers support a bike rack?

I'd say "no". Bike racks on the rear end of Airstreams are hazardous at best, IMO. Put them up front or on the TV.

Boxite that was my thought but wife asked me to ask. Our TV is an SUV so just not going to try to put them up on top. Whew. I prefer walking in RV parks.

Bumper bike carrier

I asked my installer and he recommended against it because factory bumpers are welded where this aftermarket bumper will be bolted on. There is a good front mount bike rack available. We are waiting to see if our available tongue weight will accommodate it first before we try that though. The posted tongue weight for the 22 FB is 393 pounds, but Im still not sure if that is with filled bottles and a loaded trailer. We will load up and weigh first and then decide on how to carry our bikes. Might have to add a roof top carrier.

Sport 22 bike rack

We would be interested in hearing about the tongue mounted bike rack and how it performed. Seems to me with SUV lift gate, filling propane tanks, etc. a roof mount would work the best. We were also advised by the dealer not to use the bumper with a bike rack.

Yep but the SUV is tall and I ain't. So roof mount is out. Looked at the tongue bike rack and said, no way. Plus the tongue rack is expensive as in $800 if memory serves me.

So bikes stay home for us anyway.

You might consider a front-mounted receiver hitch on your SUV and put the bikes up front.

You could put the bikes *inside* the trailer while traveling...and then lock them to the a-frame when at the CG? I know, crazy idea that we carry stuff inside a massive primarily empty box :P

Folding bike. This has worked for me in my 16 Sport have them a dozen years, now they start at about $635.00. They fold n fit in a nylon bag weigh approximately 30 lbs one stored under dinette and one on bed, no worry about theft and clean because they are in storage bags. They are full size bikes very sturdy.

I was told by several people that it will *not* support a bike rack. Looking at tongue racks as we speak.

I would definitely install a bumper...I had one put on by the dealer, although after seeing it installed, I could have done it myself...It is a bolt on, and some cutting of the banana wrap...caulking is also necessary where it passes thru the banana wrap. The bumper is cheaper than any damage to the body that would occur if you hit without the bumper..

Colonial Airstream ordered one for my 16 Sport for me that they will install for me, I guess they ordered it from Airsteam.
