I can't even imagine to bolt a hitch directly to the bumper to tow or carry something. It is so much thick nice beefy steel around. It is really easy to make receiver and use it for years without thinking about loosing your goods during your trips. Just think what will happen if you drop your bike on interstate driving 60 mpg?????

Here is how another skoolie fellow solved this problem. Just scroll the page and see how. Looks good.... solid....:

If I was to bolt anything to heavy to the bumper, I would add a few more mounting bolts to the frame, and weld more ribs into the back of the bumper.

Not all bumpers are the same.

The 96 rear engine Blue bird only has one rear bumper.

The 2000 of the same bus has a sub bumper behind the outer bumper.

My bad, the 2000 rear engine with a sub bumper is a Thomas, not a Blue Bird.

So many buses here I'm loosing track.

I just looked at three 2001 rear engine Blue Birds. None of them have a sub bumper.
