I got locks keyed the same as my brother's which is handy.

Thanks Fred. I think this is the way to go. Now I just have to get motivated and place my order.

Things are more like they are now than they've ever been before.

LOL! My motivation was that our old one broke beyond repair and we were getting ready to head out. If I had not mounted the bikes on the old rack, as a pre-check, I would have been in a pickle when it was time to leave.

Bike Racks

We just returned from a 2 month+ trip, the shakedown cruise. Decided to buy some cheap mountain bikes and a rack. Found a Swagman XC2 RV rated on Craigslist for $65. Then bought 2 well used Cannondales for about $200 total. The Swagman hitch needed to be extended 4" to allow clearance around the Escape spare tire, that was another $60 at a machine shop. Looks like everything will work. If we ever get nicer bikes for RVing we may reconsider the rack, but this is a good solution for now.
