Argosy rear rack

hello everyone, I have a 1974 argosy and am wondering if the rear frame is stong enough to support a rack with a 650cc motorcycle on it? I have seen numoris posts about the airstreams and not to do it and am unsure if the frame of the argosy is the same way. Thank you

Don't do it! The frame is the same as an Airstream or sometimes even lighter.

A rack on the rear may support a 'toy'......while your coach is parked. But once on the road the extra weight bouncing back there WILL damage your coach. Along with flexing the frame the rivets WILL pop!
