I have read many posts regarding racks for our fatties.
This is what I purchased. 500 capacity.



Modification (cut diagonal top bar) was as per picture to allow the tires to sit flat, finish with 1"x 1"plastic end caps to tidy up the look. Folds up when not in use. Mount bikes opp and use Velcro straps to each wheel on the non cut end and cinch straps to hold bikes upright. Folds when not in use. Less than $100.00 for 2 bike carrier.

Yes I enjoy reading all the great informative posts. It just seemed to.me folks were spending over 3-400 on racks. This works great and you do have some access to the rear of a SUV.

Could you add another picture that shows the rack with the bike installed? I really like your idea but I can't figure out how it works. Thank you.

I made one other mod. to the carrier. I used the anti rattle plate that comes with the carrier and the u bolt together with piece of 1/2" black gas pipe to keep the bikes upright. (Picture 1 and 3)

Second bike just goes on opposite to the way the first faces. Use tie downs of any hing want to the wheel with the uncut bar to stop forward/backwards movement....I have ratcheting straps to in place. Over kill but I like to be safe with $2000 worth of bikes on the back of the RV
