We are looking at the Escape E19 and currently own a Kuat NV 2.0 2" Receiver Bike Rack. https://www.kuat.com/product/nv-2-0/
. We just looked at an ambassador's E19 this morning and I should have put a tape measure on the distance from the receiver to past the outer edge of the spare tire. Has anyone used the Kuat NV 2.0 on the E19? Someone mentioned a receiver extension but this is a heavy hitch (52 lbs.) and our touring bikes weigh in at 30 lbs. each, so we are looking at 122 lbs. hanging off the back.
