    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bolts too weak for practical use I do not suggest you purchase this item. It is junk. The bolts are too weak to handle the suggested weight. I recently bought this item and used it for attaching a hitch mount bike rack for a round trip to Utah from Pennsylvania. On the way back, two of the bolts snapped and caused the bike rack to fall off. Not noticing what happened, the rack which was luckily locked to the bumper, was dragged for many miles and the rack and two of the four bikes were destroyed, the other two bikes were repairable. Total weight of the bikes and rack was less than 100 pounds. Bolts should have been Grade 8 or have more bolts added to the plate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2" RV Bumper Adapter I have a 24fter 5th wheel, and as with everyone, space is always an issue, there is never enough, My TV is a short bed, I have a low profile Diamond plate tool box, so I have no room left in side the bed of my truck for my generator, which is 16 x 20 x 24, and 118 pounds. I bought this 2 " Bumper Adapter to attach to my 4 " steel sewer hose bumper, and used the same product Camping world has, # 27596, Wide Body Hitch-Haul, now I have a place to put my Generator, and a lot of other things too, it will hold # 500 lbs. Again, Camping World has saved the day, Thanks. P.S. if you have a spot welded 4 in bumper, you will have to have it welded all the way across.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very strong I added this to my rear bumper to carry a 3-bike rack. On our latest trip, almost all mounting bolts came loose, both on this adapter and the bike rack. It's only a miracle we didn't loose our bikes. I replaced the main bolt on the rack with a new one and added a new lock washer, I also replaced the stock nuts on this unit with lock nuts. The only flaw on this unit is that the nuts are not lock nuts or that they could have provided some lock washers. We'll see how my set-up handles the next trip. On a side note, our last trip was over some very rough roads, some were pathetic and should have been detoured.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Well Until Your Bumper Falls Off Mounted this to the bottom of the bumper since the actual trailer body was in the way to have it mounted on top. It lasted only 3 trips and luckily had an RV convoy so that who was behind us let us know that our bikes where dragging on the ground behind the RV. The RV came with the spare attached to the square bumper, but I guess adding the bike rack was too much for the stock bumper and it literally twisted off and destryed the bikes. I am now paying nearly $800 to replace with a heavier duty bumper, in essence a voided frame warranty, and have to buy 2 new bikes and a new bike rack. Morale of the story, make sure your bumper can handle it before you make over $2000 mistake for $38.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This is the perfect solution to being able to use a bicycle carrier on the back of a travel trailer with a 4 inch square bumper. We were very happy to be able to mount our bicycle carrier on the travel trailer where the bicycles were not in danger of being damaged if mounted between the tow vehicle and a travel trailer. It was very easy to install, only took 5 minutes. Comes with an adapter to receive a one inch bicycle carrier post. Have used it at highway speeds on a 600+ miles round trip and we couldn't be happier with the results. Excellent value for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as described This bumper adapter is just what I needed and was exactly as described. The nuts that came with it are in fact messed up so get some regular nuts and lock washers before starting to install. The nuts are metric M12 class 8 nuts and I used standard heavy duty 1/2" lock washers (4 of each). This will make it a very simple installation. Also, I think that Camping World may have had this item packaged and labeled for shipping even before I logged off from ordering as it was delivered 2 days later. THANKS Camping World! Great job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2" RV Bumper Adapter Just installed the 2" RV bumper adapter on the 4" rear bumper of our trailer. I had to move the spare tire to one side of the bumper and installed the 2" receiver near the center of the bumper. Now I can use our Graber bicycle rack in the 2" receiver on the back of the camper. This product is very heavy duty and easy to install. Heavy duty bolts are included. No instructions were included, by you really shouldn't need any. Saved me from having to get a 2" receiver welded onto the bumper.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Okay Wish that the holes for the bolts were positioned so that the bolts fit snuggly against the bumper. With the 1/4 to 1/2 inch of play, the unit can swivel a bit on the bumper. But I found that when I mount my bike rack, I have to use ratchet straps to secure the rack (attached two straps to the ends of the bumper) and keep it from moving back and forth. The adapter should work just fine for a bike rack, but I don't think I'd try pulling any wheeled trailer with it.

    Can I mount this on the undewrside of the bumper? I do not have enough clearance on top between bumper and body of RV Thanks

    Asked by: Rick
    Yes you can, however I would suggest investing in some higher tensile bolts to be on the safe side and install shims to minimize/remove any torqueing if there are any gaps.

    how much weight can it handle

    Asked by: nicholas
    Copied from the Technical Specs area above: Weight capacity: 200 lbs - Do not exceed weight rating of your bumper

    I read that this device supports up to 200lbs... Are all RV bumpers the same when it comes to what the bumber can support?

    ... Or do I have to check with my dealer? I own a Starcraft Travel Star Travel Trailer.
    Asked by: East
    Individual vehicle ratings may vary for bumper strength, check with your dealer or owner's manual.

    Can this adaptor be mounted below the bumper rather than on top?

    Asked by: SandPiper
    It can, yes, the only difference in performance is the loss of ground clearance.

    Does this come in a 1 1/4 receiver and also for a half bumper?

    My travel trailer doesn't have a square bumper. It has what I call a half bumper.
    Asked by: caftewks
    Unfortunately no, this is the only version we have available.
