    We have purchased a 25 lb bike rack for two bikes of 75 lbs combined. It extends about 2 ft from a standard steel bumper.
    Any thoughts, experience or alternatives to hauling bikes would be appreciated.

    Look at the post on the same subject listed in RV tips and tricks. Might find info there

    I had a 2 position bike rack on the back bumper of my 04 Canyon Trail and hauled it all over the US with no problems. Make sure your bumper has sturdy welds.
