I don't think the foam rollers were available when we got ours. We've had it about five years. We searched a long time to find a tray-based rack that would handle the extended wheelbase of our cargo bikes, and this was the only one we found.

They really are a superior product. You can see at once why they're so expensive when you see it in person. Congratulations on purchasing a quality item that should last a very long time!

The 1Up was waiting for me on the front porch when I got home yesterday. I will have to say it's very impressive and even though I really, really, really did not want to spend that kind of money on a bike rack, I think we are going to be very happy that we did in the long run.

I loaded both bikes onto the back of our Pathfinder and drove around the neighborhood, and it they did not even move.

And I also made sure that it's going to work on the back of the camper.

What, you thought we were maybe lying to you?

Congrats on getting it. Isn't it a pleasure to use?

I just wish there was a receiver on the back of my temp trailer so I could use mine. What a pain loading them inside compared to the ease of use of the 1UP.

Not at all Jim, it's just that I'm really, really cheap, and sometimes I just have to learn the hard way. But I do eventually get there.

There is that point when you realize you are not being cheap, but actually getting value for your money. Kinda like the decision to buy an Escape.
