They are, undoubtedly, great at what they do .... though pricey ... the only drawback, for some, will be that you cannot tow and carry bikes at the same time. Roof Box also rave about, and sell, the MaxxRaxx bike carrier, which allows towing ... and is a lot cheaper.

... 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!

I purchased the Atera Strada DL3 model with the 5% discount from Roof Box Co, to use on my Fiat Ducato PVC. I already had a Thule towbar mounted cycle rack that I used on my car, but could not open the rear doors.
By fitting a 25ml spacer on the towbar I can now fully open both rear doors.
The carrier can accommodate 3 cycles with an option to purchase an extra bar to carry 4 cycles. It is very easy to attach and the cycles are secured in place with wheel straps and locked holding bars, though I do use an extra cable lock for extra security.
Not cheap, but an excellent buy

Can't comment on the 2, but we've had problems with the 3-4 bike version, with the towball mechanism needing tightening constantly after setting off (no danger of falling off, but swings out to the left), problems with the bike locking mechanism, and the tilt button. I don't know if ours is just a bad one, but wish we'd got something different, and about to contact them again.

Good customer service from roofbox, though.
