I can post some pics later, but I just wanna toss this idea out before I run out the door to work. Our bike rack has caused a weld to crack on our camper. While repairing the cracked weld won't be a problem, I want to reinforce the bumper to prevent this from happening in the future. My initial thoughts were either making a brace from the rack to the frame, and/or 2 1/4" thick gussets on each side of the bumper to frame joint. I'm lookin for some ideas. I don't want to make the brace if I don't have to. The bumper is 4x4x1/8" I believe. Also is there a way to reinforce the section of bumper where the rack is clamped to the bumper. It's crushed just a bitfrom the twisting caused by the bouncing of the rack. Thanks.
