Customer Question
Yo I own a...

Yo I own a 2004 forest river sierra sport I want to attach something to the back to accommodate a bike rack there is two ports perpendicular to the rear bumper. It looks to me like it is a sleeve to attach maybe a bumper? Would you know?

T​here is a receiver attachment that goes right on the bumper and can be moved to any area that fits your situation. Easily installs in about 10 minutes. Not expensive. About $25 or so. I can get you a part number if you want. Then you just buy the bike rack that works for you and slide it in there. Locking pin keeps it safe. Hope that helps here. Please get back to me if you need more as all follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit.

In addition, I don't have a bumper.
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 10 months ago

If you don't have a rear bumper you can add one. Part number that goes on a standard 4" square bumper is UF #35-946402. It may be more than I thought for that one, but I have used this make in my own shop and it works well. If you have a good welding shop in your area they can make you a mount that goes underneath that has a built-in receiver and that can work instead of a bumper. I have one in my area that I use for special applications.
