Re: 55-gallon barrels of WVO on back of bus

I have a burley steel rack welded to my frame that comes through the back bumper. It's important to remember that you will not be putting that weight on the bumper, only straight to the frame. And the frame can handle it. I have loaded my rack with two full barrels of veggie oil, and two dump truck tires with rims (probably too much) with no problems. The tires were a one time thing, the two full barrels are a common occurrence. I haven't noticed any difference in handling (maybe it's the length, I have a 25 footer). If you can get somebody to weld you a worthy rack, my personal experience screams go for it.
