@drpprmt, I have a 2015 so I am able to access the space inside the plastic tailpiece. IIRC, you are correct about there not being anything structural back there.Regardless, if I were serious about mounting an actual bumper, I would want it to be connected to the frame of the trailer rather than the camper shell.
@Toefoot, I agree. This topic has come up a few time in the distant past, but I don't recall if anyone actually went through with it. In addition to the challenge of actually attaching the receiver hitch. There was general consensus that anything on that hitch (like bicycles) would bounce around so violently it would be unusable for any practical purpose.
@Toefoot, Nucamp and little guy are no longer affiliated. Just a little fyi.
