Anyone ever use a cargo carrier behind their trailer?

I'm thinking of getting one of these. It could serve two purposes, bikes or general "stuff." Any thoughts?

I have used a regular steel cargo tray before. Works great but you need to make sure the hitch is bolted or welded to the frame and NOT the rear bumper!

Check out the modular bumper system here...

They even have a bumper replacement that beefs up your existing setup.

I am running their basic safety struts so I can have a bike rack.

We have a cargo carrier with sides. Works well. Just don't overload it.

I find this one works fine for my needs. I found it online; the best price was from Walmart. As previously stated, don't rely on the bumper alone to hold it.

I have the factory receiver that's bolted to the frame.

My owner's manual states that the factory receiver is only good for 300lbs... Might want to keep that in mind.

I have a Yackup from rvkayack racks. It's heavy but with one Kayak and including the rack it's well under 300lbs. It will also carry 2 bicycles but have not tried that yet. My receiver is welded to the frame, I don't have a bumper.
