I believe Oliver recommends 100 pounds max load on the recommended Lets Go Aero BikeWing 1.25" rack (which you can find that weight online).... if I am interpreting their data right. ...  https://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/new-bike-hitch-capacity/

 

A call to Howenwald would clarify. I personally find the idea of hanging floppy cargo off that very small receiver MORE than a little disconcerting. The back end of your Ollie is a pretty violent location when you hit a big bridge dip at 65 mph. I double strap everything in my rear rack so I don't lose cans and chocks en route.

Thanks.  This is for a 2" hitch, not 1 1/4.  Should make a little difference.  But now their cross piece looks to be twice as wide and the receiver part is clamped vice welded.

I have the Oliver Rear Bumper Bike Rack holder with the 2-inch receiver. They put a sticker on there stating a 100 lb weight limit.

Thanks David! Guess I will see how much a custom one will cost.

 

Here is some food for thought.  .., https://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/how-to-move-the-factory-cargo-tray-to-a-rear-rack/
