Rear bumper with swing-out arm. What layout?

Hi,
A fab shop is making a rear bumper for me with a swing out arm but i have a question. What layout should i go for?

Single or double swingout arm?

Single swingout is less hassle to open the tailgate i guess. But it takes more space when 'swinged out' in eg. a parking lot.

Is there another reason why i should go for a double swintout?

My other needs are:
  • license plate holder
  • jerrycan holder
  • spare tire carrier (max 31")

It's a plate-bumper btw. Not a tube-bumper.

I think itís personal preference. Iím building one now. Going with a single, less moving parts to buy and engineer into the design.

The cost isn't a huge difference but i was thinking: two arms is less weight/arm when is't open.

Meh, it won't matter. I'll probably go for 1 arm.

what hinge are you using? an eighty pound spare, 40 pounds of gas plus all the steel is a lot of weight to hang off a one of the cheap trailer hub axle kits. Or are you doing a double shear style mount?

'I' am doing nothing A shop is doing it for me so i'm not worried about quality and strength. I don't think they're going to use a double shear mount.

But the project is on hold due to that corona-crisis
