I have the heavy duty double bike rack, sit on rack, as shown in above link. The centre line spacing between the two tracks that the bikes sit on is about 10".
There was ample material in the Formosa cover to completely encapsulate the bottom of the bikes and the rack support arm. The bottom of the cover is rounded not square seams.
Looks like the Kuat spacing is about the same, 11.5", but the entire Kuat base is about 23" at the centre support arm? Depending on the height of the bikes, it may indeed be a tight fit. Too bad you can't try one out without having to order one on-line.
I would be tempted to say get one and try it out with the Kuat. If it works, it is a good solid cover. If the bikes are not too tall or if you can lower the handle bars or turn them 90 degrees, that would give more room for the cover to fit around the base support of the rack?? Hopefully some other owners will contribute with their experiences with alternate bike covers.
