Neat Accessories for your RV Bumper

Before you install any of these accessories on your RV’s bumper make sure your camper, and bumper, are designed to hold the weight.

For instance, on bumper-pull trailers you want to avoid excess weight at the back of the trailer because it decreases tongue weight and can throw off the balance and handling of your trailer.

So do the safe thing and check your RV manual before adding weight-bearing accessories.

1. RV Bumper Bike Rack

Swagman 2-Bike Bumper Rack allows you to securely transport up to two bicycles on your RV’s bumper.

It comes with wheel-holders that attach directly to the bumper, providing a stable way to carry bikes without taking up space inside your RV.

The maximum weight for this model is 60 pounds (30 lbs per bike). [This weight limit should be fine for standard bikes, but most e-bikes exceed this weight so you’d want a different option for e-bikes.]

Below is a product photo showing the rack on a bumper without bikes on it.

Never enough room in your RV to bring all your camping gear or kids toys?

With these steel brackets that you mount to your camper’s bumper, you’ll have a strong spot to add extra storage.

It doesn’t come with the tote show in the photo above, but it does give you lots of opportunity to get creative and add your own storage tote, or even cargo rack.

The manufacturer ECOTRIC claims each of the 2 brackets can hold 200 pounds, but remember that doesn’t mean your bumper can hold that much. (So check your RV manual.)
