Default Bicycles

Any suggestions on how to carry two bicycles on the back of a 189FBK?
No bumper and the spare is mounted to the back wall. Is that strong enough to support a tire mounted carrier?

No the spare tire won't support the weight of one, let alone 2 bicycles. There are several options available though for carrying the bikes on the front of the trailer. The bike bunk allows you to carry them above the propane tanks,
There are also several bike racks that mount on the shank of the ball mount if you have enough clearance. This one is for 3 bikes but you get the idea:

I added a bumper to mine. Brackets bolt to the frame, then the bumper is welded to the two brackets so the spacing of the brackets fit the frame spacing.

I did this, using a Harbor Fright hitch rack, modified and removed the hitch parts and bolted to the frame,

I added “universal fit” receiver buy Curt to my 189FDS. Then moved my spare tire up to the front and upgraded to two golf cart batteries - this is to help rebalance the trailer for proper tongue weight.

The additional weight on the back can be dangerous if you don’t rebalance.

Saw this rack in camping world (Roseville CA) I was tempted but didn’t buy one yet. Called “Jack-It” attaches to tongue and somehow to curved front. On sale $216
