Rear Bumper

I have a 2855 Coleman Travel Trailer and I'd like to install a receiver hitch with a motorcycle carrier and a 200lbs scooter. Does anyone do this, or can you tell me if the bumper can handle something like this?

Based on the Coleman I had.. NO! Also need to think about what 200+# will do to the tongue weight and handling. Not saying it cannot be done, just need to engineer it properly.


There is madness to my methods

As wahoonc has said that much weight on the back of your camper will affect tongue weight and handling. Plus I doubt the camper bumper can handle the added weight with out some modifications.
