Universal Application

Universal Application-Standoff Spacers

The included standoff spacers give you the flexibility to mount your SafetyStruts to most RV frames, making it nearly universal. This heavy-duty extension hardware is required for welded or bolted I-beam frames less than 6" tall and any size double channel frames where flanges stick out past your mounting surface. They also combat bolted-frame designs where bolts may obstruct your mounting surface. The standoff spacers won't be necessary if you have a welded or bolted I-beam, S-beam, or single channel frame 6" or taller without flanges, or a tube frame 4" or taller.


SafetyStruts w-w-o Space bar

These all-steel brackets also have optional spacer bars that are in place to allow a nice, snug fit around your standard 4" RV bumper. They can be removed so that the brackets fit around larger bumpers between 4-5/16" and 4-1/2" wide, or if your bumper is bolted to the frame and the bolts interfere with the spacer bar.


Spacer bars Used-Unused

If your RV's frame has less than 3" of mounting space, the spacer bars are the perfect solution to create that extra space to properly mount your SafetyStruts. Simply remove the spacer bar, flip it around, re-locate it to the outer part of your bumper, and secure in place with the included nuts and bolts.

Beef up your RV bumper and boost your weight capacity to 400 lbs to safely haul your generator and other heavy cargo. Universal design mounts to most RV frames to reinforce your bumper and prevent metal fatigue that causes your bumper to detach.

by:

Well made, the kit includes the proper drill bits you need. Not really sure how much these add to capacity and I managed to crush the bumper a bit with a bolt on hitch and a Thule 5 bike carrier. Live and Learn !!



by:

Put theses on because I have a bumper mounted hitch to haul a cargo carrier. I think they definitely will help out in the long run



by:

after installing the brackets, I wasn't worrying the bumper and bikes wouldn't be with me when arriving at campground



by:

JUST what I needed. It helps the bumper supporting a generator and rack that we haul with our 5th wheel.



by:

Purchased Item #MO34VR support struts. The kit comes with everything you need to install no matter your frame configuration, including 2 drill bits. That product did work out nicely and is a HUGE peace of mind product, totally worth the work and the price. I have a 24' Jayco Jayflight SLX with a 4" square bumper. After drilling through the frame I can assure you you'll need the struts if you're utilizing the GennyGo tray to carry a generator. Yes the bumper joints are welded solid but the metal is not nearly as thick as it may appear. Thinking "this is gonna take all day", a few seconds after starting the drill on the frame, I was through the other side. Buy the struts if you have a comparable rig. I know now why they make this product.



by:

we have hauled 2 heavy ebikes on a bumper bike rack on travel trailer bumper
FL to CO
This product gives me piece of mind

It was kinda tough to drill through frame of rv but install was straight forward



by:

Excellent support and service on this order and all previous.



by:

Shipped fast...very good quality...very easy to install both items...pleased with purchase...will continue to deal with etrailer



by:

Quality and theory of the product is great but on my application it didn't work very good. I think for most applications it probably would work as intended.



by:

Purchased my second bumper support bracket and I’m very pleased with my choice. I appreciate the product and fast delivery from E Trailer



by:

Don't waste your time or money on this. Now my bumper welds are cracked. If you want to carry more than spare tire on rear of camper bumper install a hitch on frame.

This is not a common thing to happen, can you elaborate on the size of the bumper and age of the unit?



by:

I like the product, however the kit arrived with 2 missing locking nuts that were needed to tighten the bracket to the bumper.

Thanks for letting us know about this. I have already sent your information to our customer service team and they will be reaching out to you soon.



by:

Just opened the bumper support bracket. Seems to be heavy duty and looks like it’s going to do what I’m looking for. Thank you E Trailer for outstanding product.



by:

Will see how these work long term. A bit of work drilling into the frame but I think they will hold the tray and generator without stress



by:

I installed these because I was concerned about the stress that would placed on the trailer bumper from the spare tire rack and new Kayak verti rack. Installation was easy and since we have driven over 3000 miles across interstate 40 (alot of bad highway) and the bumper showed no signs of stress cracking at the welds. It was a simple addition that required no welding and the bolts that hold the bracket never loosened. I highly recommend this product, it gives you peace of mind and prevents your gear from snapping off down the road.



by:

Being just only 1 yr old it has rusted an awful lot already. The paint should have been done better. Maybe better QC



by:

Thank you so much for your help



by:

I have not had an opportunity to install the safety struts yet. It looks like it's doable with the parts provided.



by:

Not the easiest to install but it just had to do with the design of my Sunseeker, in most cases it looks a lot easier. Can’t really knock it for that, it’s job was to reinforce bumper. I put a rack with two 40 lb propane tanks on mine so I needed something I knew would not fail, lest I find myself in prison for being negligent and blood on my hands . Worked like a charm, too bad I didn’t think of earlier as it allowed me to carry ample propane for full timing in colder climates. Rock solid is the important part, they work exactly as described.



by:

Still need to install. Like having extra support for 4” square bumper that cargo carrier attaches to.



by:

Easy install and great design!



by:

Good fit, easy to install product as de scribed



by:

Added the extra support we needed to our 5th wheel bumper to be able to haul our e-bikes.



by:

Etrailer is an awesome business. They get right on your order and keep you updated. The brackets seem to be of good quality and well packed. They literally come with everything, even drill bits. I would recommend!



by:

You're my go to fory rv and trailer needs thanks.

  • Recommended RV Bumper Safety Struts For A Trailer With An I-Beam Frame
    If the height of the I-beams is less than 6" as you say then you would have to have to swap out the regular safety struts for the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets # MO34VR, which include spacers to place the brackets far enough out to clear the flange lip. You would not want to trim the flange of your trailer frame beams. You can place the supports on the inside or the outside of the frame beams as the difference between the two sides really isn't going to...

    Yes, you will use the Mount-n-Lock SafteyStruts Universal RV Bumper Supports # MO34VR to reinforce your bumpers frame on your 2022 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 242BHS Travel Trailer. These brackets will be installed by bolting through your trailers frame, and not the bumper supports. If you're also needing a trailer hitch, the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 will work great, and will fit trailers that have a 4" square channel bumper. This hitch is intended for RV rated accessories,...

    Yes, the 24x64 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper, # e83YR that you linked to mounts to either a 4" x 4" or a 4-1/2" x 4" steel bumper. These are are the most common sized RV bumpers, please verify this dimension against the bumper installed on your 2019 Coleman 2605RL. This is a simple, bolt-on installation with included hardware, mounting to the frame rails under the bumper providing excellent support so that you could carry heavier items like generators.

  • Will The SafetyStruts MO34VR Allow For Enough Strength to Carry 130lbs of Bikes on Travel Trailer?
    The Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts # MO34VR simply add additional strength to the rear bumper on your 2022 Keystone Travel Trailer. To determine if you will be able to then attach a Bike Rack # S94FR using a 2" Receiver # e38HR you will need to contact Keystone. They will be able to tell you how much weight your bumper and frame can support. Do note this bike rack weighs 60lbs and is capable of supporting 2 bikes up to 70lbs each. If Keystone says their bumper is not structurally strong enough...

  • Hitch for Coachmen Freelander Motorhome on Ford Transit T350HD Cutaway Chassis
    I've spoken with some of the Tech folks with our hitch manufacturers who tell me that none of the available hitches for the Ford Transit will work with the T350HD cutaway chassis because of the changes made to the vehicle when the motorhome is added to the chassis. Your best bet would be to remove the existing hitch and install a weld-on hitch designed for a service body truck like # 41990-07. The bumper reinforcement struts you spoke of are meant for loads hung from the bumper, not a...

  • Are The Support Brackets Needed For A Trailer That Has Its Bumper Welded To The Frame?
    Since your bumper is welded to the frame, it should be very strong and likely won't need to use the support brackets # MO34VR for the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e99049. However, you'll want to verify that the load you're planning on carrying isn't going to overload your bumper. Bumper capacities will vary from each manufacturer, and I recommend contacting the manufacturer for your bumpers maximum weight capacity to ensure you aren't going to overload your bumper. If...

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Be Installed on the Rear Bumper of a Heartland North Trail Trailer
    The brackets which hold the rear bumper to the trailer frame are not always up to the task of hauling extra gear. In order to confirm we must recommend reaching out to the trailer manufacturer to see if and how much you can carry. If it's not rated or not high enough for what you need, we offer support brackets which will strength the connection between the bumper and frame. The Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets part # MO34VR is what I recommend. This would...

  • Comparing Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts MO34VR and MO22FR
    I would be happy to help! The only difference between the Mount-n-Lock Safety Struts # MO34VR and # MO22FR you were looking at is the hardware used to attach them. The # MO34VR uses nuts and bolts where the # MO22FR uses self tapping screws. Since both have the same 400lb load rating I recommend going with the # MO22FR as it will be the easiest to install. This will allow you to use the Ultra-Fab 2" Motor Home Trailer Hitch Receiver for 4" x 4" Bumpers - 3,500 lbs # UF35-946402 you were...

  • How Much Can the Rear Bumper Hold On A Vintage RV Camper
    I would not be able to speculate on the rear bumper capacity for any one particular trailer especially one this old but if you feel you will be exceeding this with the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 you can add supports, the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets part # MO34VR. The other options would be a frame mount trailer hitch, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13703.

  • Why is the Flint Hill Goods 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier Not RV Approved
    The ride on the back of a trailer is very rough due to the extended distance from the axle so a lot of hitch mounted accessories like the Flint Hill Goods 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier part # FHG99ZR are not rated for this. Instead, I recommend using the Mount-n-Lock GennyGo Generator and Cargo Carrier for RV Bumpers part # MNT34FR which attaches directly to the rear bumper and you can combine multiple sets for more room. I do recommend beefing up the rear bumper with the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts...

  • Will Filling Your RV Bumper With Spray Foam Increase The Load Capacity
    No, just adding in spray foam will not increase the capacity of the bumper in order to hold the 24x64 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e83YR. The main figure for an RV bumper's capacity is how strong the connection is to the trailer frame, which is why we offer the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets # MO34VR to help support the extra weight that the cargo carrier puts on the bumper. Filling the bumper with spray foam would actually just increase its overall weight,...

  • Recommended Brackets For The etrailer RV Bumper Carrier On An I-Beam Frame
    Yes, you'll just need to use the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets # MO34VR, which will come with spacers to fit your I-Beam frame. Page 2 of the attached instructions will go over how to install these brackets on I-Beam frames and help support your 24x64 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e83YR.

  • Can Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Be Mounted On The Inside Of The Bumper Frame Beam
    Yes, both the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Standard RV Bumper Support Brackets - 4" to 4-1/2" # MO22FR and Universal # MO34VR can be mounted on either the inside of outside of the frame beams. It's typically easier to mount to the outside since you wouldn't have to get under the trailer, but if you're wanting more of a hidden look it's totally acceptable to mount it on the inside.

  • Can The Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack Be Mounted To A Trailer's Bumper
    The Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # S94FR could be mounted to the rear bumper of your trailer using the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100. The only issue would be the capacity of the bumper and whether it would be able to handle the weight. Typically RV bumpers have a very low capacity and are more so just for looks so you'd want to verify with your trailer's manufacturer what the capacity is. You can reinforce your bumper by installing the Mount-n-Lock...

  • Correct Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts for 2022 Grand Design Transcend Xplor 321BH
    The answer to your question will depend on your bumper. More than likely the # MO22FR will be the correct part for your Grand Design Transcend Xplor 321BH. If you have a tube frame with a bumper that is 4" - 4-1/2" wide then this will work as extra support for your carrier and generator. You can see this in the attached review video at the 2 minute mark. If you have an I-beam, S-beam, or single channel frame you want the universal # MO34VR instead. If you don't have a carrier already Mount-n-Lock...

    It sounds like you have the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 installed on your Jayco trailer. If that is the case you can tow with it, but you are correct that the bumper on your trailer is really the weak point. One option is to use the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets - 4" to 4-1/2" # MO34VR to reinforce your bumper for additional strength.

  • Best Way to Transport 70 lb E-Bike with Travel Trailer
    The Feedback Sports RAKK XL Bike Floor Stand - Black # 301-17345 doesn't have a weight capacity so it will hold an electric E-Bike up inside a travel trailer. This is designed for a standard storage situation like in a garage where the floor is non-moving though so if you're planning on using this during transit I don't recommend doing so as the unit will bounce around. For your application I recommend installing a hitch on your travel trailer (if it doesn't have one) and using a hitch...
