Oh, additional thoughts… It will flip up empty even with spare tire - to avoid punching hole in spare tire cover, inside bike has right pedal removed for travel and remounted when ready to use again. Ian

Waves to Ian and Jenny. HI!

I was hoping you would pipe in with your experience with the Kuat. My friend has had his for about 3 years now, he still likes it a lot, and it is still going strong. He has not used it on a trailer though.

I'm not up to reading this whole thread but I have a question on the 1UP or the Kuat bike racks. Got to bite the bullet and find an easier to use, rv compatible rack then mine. Does the spare tire on the back of the Escapes get in the way? Don't want to use an extension tube.

My 1up works great with the (first) bike with the rear tire on the driver's side.

my 1up works great. can carry 2 bikes, the combination of bikes loaded changes. but i always find that the inside pedal that's next to the spare tire cover just has to be positioned to the side of the spare cover.
