Bike rack for 22ft Sport?

We would like to install a rear bike rack on our 2014 FB Sport. Without the bumper, choices appear limited. Has anyone had experience with the Arvika product from Canada, which is supposed to work on the Bambi? I saw it advertised in a recent issue of Airstream Life.

Appreciate any thoughts on that.
Jeff

I have an Arvika on my Classic 25fb. It adds a little tongue weight. I have some photos in another thread. Easy to install. I purchased the 2" receiver so I can take the rack off the Airstream and use it on the truck if we desire to take the bikes with us on a day trip. With an electric drill and sockets it just takes a few minutes to transfer over.

The Sport is a lightweight trailer and adding bikes and a bike rack (to the rear) will add weight and stress to the aft structure which is not designed for that purpose. Weight that far aft will also add to a swaying tendency. Not adviseable.
But if you still want to do that... you might consider adding the Bambi rear bumper kit and then the standard rear bike rack...all of which will contribute further to the possibilities of poor handling and possible damage (although the rear bumper will at least contribute to some protective functions.)
