Jayco Stirling (& Silverline next year) Rr Bumper Mods.

Postby gadfly » Tue Nov 19, 2013 4:41 pm

Has anybody had experience modifying the rear bumper on a Jayco Stirling to take RHS tubing rather than the factory fitted tubular bumper? I ask because we have a portable boat loader and on current van we mount the wheels on brackets at the back of the van - requiring RHS bumper which has similar attachment points (strength and size) of the Jayco mounts. (I am aware that this voids any warranty but the wheels havent fallen off yet!). Would be interested to hear how Stirling owners cope with outboard motors also.

The outback comes with an RHS galvanised bumper. It slides into a section welded to the chassis rail.

Picture attached.

Don't know how the non outback bumper is attached though.

HI,

Yep, ours is the same. The bumper slides into the chassis rail.

Re the outboard, we had a bracket made up and carry the motor on the A-frame.

Cheers,
