I was wondering if the bumper on my 82 240D is strong enough to mount a trailer hitch for pulling a small camper or fishing boat. I've been told little to date or the speculation has been that it should be a frame mount due to the telescoping bumper. Thanks guys!!

I've pulled many small items with my 76 240D on it's bumper mount hitch. The guy I bought it from was towing a 17' bass boat with it!
I also have a bumper mount hitch on my 300D, but have only towed the empty 8' flat-bed trailer a few miles with it (wife doesn't like me to tow things with her car ).

I would like advise on this as well... Am I doing something dangerous with the bumper-mount hitch or will the bumper handle this weight without problems.
What is the maximum weight the bumpers will handle safely?

76 240D (W115) - 550K miles
78 300D (W123) - 200K+ miles
