... but for those not towing, this type of carrier are the bee's knee's!
Can't comment on this particular make/model, as I have a Thule equivalent (although I have had excellent dealings with The RoofboxCo).
I can tilt mine (with 2 bikes still in place, of course), and get all my gear... including a big/bulky/heavy tent... in and out of my boot via the tailgate (Was Kia Sedona, now VW Sharan... both MPV's).
My previous non-tilting carrier had to be removed from the towbar (after first removing each bike, of course!) to get at the tailgate... and then secured to a tree or similar, for the duration of any camping trip!
With a tilter, there's no need to remove, and as the carrier is locked to the towball, and the bikes locked to the carrier, all remains secure, on or off site.
I'd highly recommend at least "this type" of cycle carrier to anyone who takes bikes (but doesn't tow!). A fabulous bit of kit.
I don't need one... but there's no harm in entering the competition!!
Great stuff... and a big thanks to both UKCS and Roofboxco!
