What is the Rear Bumper Capacity of a 5th Wheel Trailer and How To Increase It


Greetings, I have a 2013 primetime crusader 325 RES and Im wondering what the weight carrying capacity of the rear bumper is. I am looking to place a cargo carrier/ mount a generator on the rear. Thank you


Expert Reply:

In order to determine the capacity of the rear bumper on any fifth wheel trailer you'll need to reach out to the trailer manufacturer as we don't have this information. That said, it's typically around the 200 lb mark. If you need/want more we do have a way to strengthen the rear bumper using the Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts Universal RV Bumper Support Brackets part # MO34VR which increases the capacity to 400 lbs. In order to carry cargo and gear on the bumper, I highly recommend the etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper offered in 24x40 part # e99050, 24x60 part # e99049, 24x64 part # e83YR, and 24x84 part # e96ZR.
