Bumper Mount Hitches

A bumper mount hitch is an easy and effortless way to attach a receiver to your vehicle. Instead of mounting to a frame, a bumper mount hitch attaches to your vehicle’s bumper. It provides a receiver tube and safety chain attachment points for ball mounts, cargo carriers, bike racks and other hitch-mounted accessories. Unlike a trailer ball, which simply installs into a hole in the vehicle’s bumper, a bumper mount hitch allows for adjustment and provides a lower hitch point for level trailer towing.

A receiver-style bumper mount hitch can tow up to 5,000 pounds of gross trailer weight and 500 pounds of tongue weight. Adding a weight distribution system can increase the towing capacity up to 6,000 pounds. However, the bumper mount hitch weight capacity is limited to the weight capacity rating of the bumper. The weight capacity of the bumper is normally around 3,500 pounds and can usually be found stamped somewhere on the bumper or on a sticker.

While a bumper mount hitch may be limited to the weight capacity of your bumper, it still provides a wide variety of uses for light applications. It is an excellent choice for hauling many types of trailers, including bike trailers, utility trailers, boat trailers and pop-up campers.
