Would you take one away when camping? Not if you need to tow a trailer or caravan etc.

30kg per bike limit, that would put my bike over its limit.

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.

I have seen one of these (or one very like it) at Blackpool. The chap just tilted it forward, got his helmet and jacket out the back, removed his bike, then uncoupled the rack and popped it in the back. It all happened very quickly.

I have never personally used one but certainly would (being a tent camper with no trailer is definately a bonus)

I have NEVER been lost, though I do admit to spending several hours locationally challenged

More tentage = Campus Sherpa 4 - reproofed and still going strong

In Memorandum = Vango Quest, Khyam Chatsworth, and a frame tent OH wouldn'try!!!!

They certainly look good, but I am surprised they dont mention the weight of the rack itself, especially as they are pushing it being easier on your back than some other designs.
We have a Thule one, the non-folding version as this is simply too expensive, and it's ace. We are tent campers, and have enough room in the boot for all our gear with the bikes on behind. If we need to get into the boot, then the thing tilts to allow the door to open. We've even left the bikes on it overnight when stopping at a b&b en-route once, locked of course!
These are great in that they can fit into the boot of your car while you are off cycling. Very handy when you can sometimes be parking in some rather remote car parks so dont want to leave it unattended while accessing some great cycle trails, one example was the Goss Moor Trail in Cornwall.
As for insurance, you should have told your insurer that you have a towbar as these are normally a "modification" to your vehicle. But you are not actually towing, so it hasn't made a difference to my policy.
Also, something we've not yet done but are planning to is taking it either on a ferry or through the Chunnel. As long as the combined length of your car and the rack is below their limit, you dont pay extra like you sometimes have to if you are taking a trailer.

The other handy thing being tenters is that the rack can sit nicely behind the tent with bikes stood and locked to it, so acts as a mobile bike-park too!

Oh, final comment about not being able to use one if you tow a caravan, our last rack was a different design, and the chap we got it from had fixed a tow-ball sticking up from the a-frame front link thing at the front of his van (sorry, not being a vanner I dont know the proper name!) so he attached the van to the car, then this towball attached to the van took the rack. He showed me photos and it was very impressive, and of course, it gave him somewhere secure for the bikes while they were on site too.

The weight isn't mentioned as it's the question in the competition
