Hi yizit -- hadn't heard of the Saris bike rack but sounds interesting -- will check it out along with the other brands. Looks like an hitch extension is necessary with a rear tire and good to know CW has them. Our PW van spare tire has a cover on it I want to leave on, so not sure I could use a 'tire-mounted' carrier since I think they can't have a tire cover on them?? Thanks for input everyone!

You're welcome. We've had our Saris for 4-5 years and have no complaints. We tried the "other" types, and had our bikes touching the vehicle or each other and causing scratches. This one is soooooo easy to use and the bikes do not touch anything. They ride ready nice behind our Roada (RT) and our Pathfinder.

4 bike rack, although 4 is tight and 3 fits perfectly. No hitch extension necessary (well, for the RT at least). Adds just a few inches to your length when folded. Swings away, with or w/o bikes, so you can access the rear doors. Locks for bikes to rack, and rack to vehicle. Very quick to load/unload if you have standard bike frames, needs an attachment/adaptor for unusual frame. Very solid mounting, bikes to rack, rack to vehicle. First bike should be mounted front wheel to right side of vehicle.
