Slide out rear bumper rack

For those of you who have the extending rear bumper storage tray, how do you use it? I'm thinking of strapping my Honda generator on it, but want to see if anyone has had problems with weight. The sticker on it says not to exceed 250lbs, but.....My gen is only 135lbs.
On one short trip I strapped two kayaks on it and it worked fine, but combined weight of those were only about 100lbs. They did peek around the corners of both sides of the trailer though.

I have been using mine for 2 + years. Mostly carrying 2 bikes. I spent more on my last rig adding a rear hitch and bike carrier that this option cost, so I am happy with it.

I have hauled my generator on mine several times without a problem and it weighs in just short of 250 pounds. My only suggestion is to shut the fuel off when hauling so the bouncing doesn't flood the carburetor.
