Default what do u guy think of

this
http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...tch%20carriers

im looking that for our bikes and to carry other stuff. they offer bike mounts to go with it.

i have a bike rack but since both of our bikes are the dual shock kind they are a pain to get on the current bike rack. so i want one that uses the tires. it said it will hold 500lbs, would that be considered tounge weight?

it look like a cool idea doesnt it? what do u guys think?

Tounge weight is all the weight on the hitch. You'll be putting your load+ the weight of the bikes on your tounge.

There is a 94-95 SE bonnie around here that has one of those on the back... The back end sits all the way down...lol

Do this you and the lady open the trunk and sort of sit on the back end and see how far the rear sinks...

I wish I had a pic to show what 320 Lbs does to the rear of my car untill I pump up the air struts....

Does your car have the ELC?

What does that carier weigh on its own?
