take a serious look at a front mount Arvika rack, I ran one on my last two trailers with great success. It will add about 150lbs to your tongue weight though so make sure your TV will allow that.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^This is what I have after fighting a rear mounted rack on a custom built reinforced hitch. The bikes bounced a lot and I had a very robust set up. Once you own an Arvika, you will never carry your bikes any other way.

The tongue weight is limited with the current vehicle and possibly with any new vehicle as well, but I'll keep that bike rack in mind. Need to put the bikes inside.

I carry 3 bikes over the dining table. I'll have to fit 4 when my DD moves up to a 24". The Sunlite fork mount brackets were $16 ea. The front wheels store under the table.
It's important to me to keep the bikes out of the road grime when towing in bad weather. Also, the bikes weight is almost over the axles.
