Maximum weight of rear hitch 19 ft?

Does anyone know how much weight the rear hitch can take? We are looking at buying a bike rack to carry 2 e bikes with a total wight of 100 lb. Thanks

It’s rated for 150 lbs.
Recommend you measure your tongue weight with all your gear and the bikes loaded just to confirm it’s still ok.

In addition numerous recurring threads stress the importance of using a hitch rated and certified for back end of trailer use. The “one up” line of bike racks appears to be a predominant rack of choice with high marks. The wheels should be supported. It gets whippy back there. This is not to discount other racks which may be suitable, just my observation.

Strike while the iron is hot. Live every day as if it were your last and one day you will be right.

I bought the Swagman Escapee 2 bumper rack for our 21, and I wish we'd sprung for the OneUp. The locks have failed on the Escapee and the pivots for the vertical wheel clamping arms have become very stiff, I can only move them after spraying quite a bit of penetrating oil on the pivots.
