Welcome to the forum Viking12

A lot will depend on what you want to put on that tray. Not to mention the sizes you may want,

As far as the back bumper..I would recommend checking the manufacture to determine if the bumper can handle the weight.

Keep in mind that anything added to the front or back will affect tongue weight, and therefore handling.

If you have a ladder on your RV and its just a couple of lawn chairs then maybe a small roof rack would be better. Just be sure to be careful not to create any leaks and seal it up good and tight when you install it.  If you put one bar left and right side of the roof it will give you enough to strap them down.

Welcome to the Forum!

As Gizmo said, bumpers are notoriously poorly supported.  A couple lawn chairs should not be a problem, but a box tends to accumulate more things.  Make sure it can support more weight than you intend to carry.
