Remember that this is not a static load -- with each vibration, the load accelerates downward, eventually causing metal fatigue in the bumper. If you had a hitch receiver welded to the frame (not the bumper), there are platforms for generators that fit into the receiver.

Good luck!

Short answer is no. Not without some serious modification.
