Weight Capacity of Forest River Flagstaff Ultra Light 4 Inch Bumper


I have a 21 foot Flagstaff Ultralight with 4” bumper. Is the Swagman around the tire deluxe with two standard bikes too much weight for the bumper?


Expert Reply:

The Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack for RV Bumpers # S80501 with two standard bikes is not too much weight for your Flagstaff Ultra Light 4 inch bumper. The rack weighs about 20 lbs and can carry two bikes up to 35 lbs each.

I assume you are asking because Forest River doesn't recommend carrying anything on their Flagstaff Ultra Lite bumpers but people have been doing so for years without issues. The manufacturer doesn't even recommend mounting a spare tire to it and yet most models come with that spare attached from the factory.
