White Hawk 2" Receiver Hitch for Bike Rack

I have a White Hawk 32KBS travel trailer. I would like to install a 2" receiver hitch on the back to accommodate a bike rack for our 2-60lb each ebikes. Has anyone done this? Bolt on or weld on? Any hitch and\or bike rack recommendations?

I would definitly WELD to the frame.
You do not want to attack to rear bumper as those are only designed for up to 100 lbs.

X2, I have a welded on hitch. I have had the best pricing and best quality by locating a local welding shop and have them custom fab a hitch assembly. Modern frames usually need some frame reinforcements at the mounting location.

I've used a bolt on for 15 years on two different trailers without any problem. As to the weight issue, my white hawk came with the bumper mount swing out swivel and attached grill.....way over 100lbs.
