Have also been thinking I'll go with theSwagman Dispatch - like that the bicycle is not just supported by the tube.... ad an ok price. ...Just wish had more than a two bicycle capacity. Ah well - will no doubt figure out a way to adapt as need arises.

I was browsing through a biking forum for competitive bikers a few days back, and in a bike carrier thread, a lot of them said they use the 1UP USA "Super Duty Single" then add on additional Super Duty Single trays as needed depending on how many different bikes they need to transport (up to 3 bikes total, 225 lb total, 75 lb per bike tray). It's a little more expensive to piece it together that way, but lots more flexible for them to meet their changing needs for each competition. For what it's worth, the black anodized option (yet even more expensive) was popular because they thought it looked more rugged on the back of their tricked-out trucks and SUVs.

We finished a 14,600 around the US with our Escape 21 with our bikes. We purchased the Thule at REI. Great rack and would buy it again.

This is the rack I have and it is rock solid! I am very happy with it.

Just completed our first trip with the Swagman Dispatch bike rake; 1500 km and it performed great. The only problem was self-induced by my own bone-headed cross threading of the hitch attachment bolt. The folks at Swagman answered my plea for help with new parts within 24 hours and at at no charge. Now that's GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! Thank you very much.

Apropos of absolutely nothing, other than the fact it has to do with a bike rack - this past weekend my neighbor was a big ass Class A. Backed in next to me. I noticed there were 6 (yes, I counted 'em) bikes on the back. Okay, must have a passel of kids. Nope, just the man and woman. Bikes came down. I was gone most of 2 days so only saw them use 2 of them Sunday evening.

I never got a chance to ask why they had 6 bikes with them. Clueless about bikes so could not tell you what types they were. I just found it rather interesting they had 6 of 'em.

Maybe two each of road, mountain and hybrid. With a Class A, maybe they never take off the ones for visiting grandchildren.

Thanks all for the replies to my original post. Having cultured the habit of paying for Escape-level quality, I suppose, I received my 1 UP on return from our Canada trip. Black no less, and apparently a finely tuned build. Looking forward to our first trip with new hybrid bikes - somewhere...

Nice! I love mine, but did not opt for black. That will look sharp!
