When we brought out 2016 28BHBE, the trailer beside the one we brought had the factory receiver installed and bolted to the frame. We told the dealer we wanted one on ours. The dealer gave us that one (the receiver, since he didn't have any available) and ordered another one to install on the trailer he took ours off of. We haul 5 bikes on it with no issues. Yes, it is rated for 300 pounds. Yes, we moved the spare tire about 12" to the right so the bikes fit on the rack better.
