Hello from Okla

My first post here and wanted to say hi and I do look forward to visiting with you folks. I've been camping since I was a young'un and finally upgraded to a nice Keystone Bullet after tent camping for 35+ years (that's the only way the wife will go, ). Nice to be here and hope to learn a lot, along with sharing and reading some stories and perhaps get some questions answered. I might as well ask the mods where the best place to find out my first Q. It has to deal with reinforcing the rear bumper on my 246RBS to be able to accept a receiver hitch. I am wanting to haul my 1969 Honda trail 70 that weighs in at a whopping 175lbs. Regards,

Silversurfer

from the left coast. Try doing a forum search as there have been numerous threads regarding reinforcing the rear bumpers of various models/brands of trailers. As a general rule, 200# is the max weight carrying capacity of a stock bumper. There have been several stories about members having their bumpers fail after having added bike racks.

Welcome Neighbor! Would love to see pics of your Honda 70! I used to have one that took me on many adventures in the 70's. It was gold and it was awesome.
