Yes, Iím abandoning the idea and will simply carry the bikes in the bed of my truck. Considered a front hitch but would have to sacrifice the two tow hooks according to installation instructions. Not willing to do that.

That does look like a better option. Meantime, You confirmed my suspicions about stress cracks despite bulking up the bumper, particularly when I have heavier e-bikes that collectively weigh 130 pounds, plus a 40 pound rack. Iím seriously re-thinking the wisdom of it all and changing direction. Thanks for sharing.

There is exactly 2Ē of clearance, no more. Not enough to subsequently attach a receiver.

Have a 2018 CL16BHB and want to reinforce the rear bumper per earlier recommendations in order to install a Swagman 2-bike carrier rated for e-bikes. Problem is, per pictures, there is exactly only two inches  of clearance between the installed rear bumper and the rear of the trailer, not enough to weld another two inch aluminum tube and a clamp-on receiver hitch that others have done with earlier models. What other options might I have?
