These are expensive (to me anyway, I can get these lasered) by they will reinforce the bumpers to better withstand the forces involved. This would cost less than an add-on hitch....

Has anyone used these? Looks like a simple install a quick fix to this bike rack issue. I'm a newbie camper and was going full tilt with mounting a bike rack on the back of my RV's bumper, until I came across this thread. Thanks for all the advice!

As an FYI, there are additional threads on this topic elsewhere in the forum ... you answer may be found there. For example, and not the only other thread: https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f7...ice-29109.html

Note: we did change the seats, added the removable basket, locks, headlights, etc.
And here are the two bikes (26" wheels, folding alloy frame & suspension fork, Shimano 18 speed shifter and derailleur), each folded and placed in a storage bag. When in transit, they'll be stashed next to the bed.

Thank you. Just a quick question, did you run this past Jayco or Norco before doing this mod?
