Looks neat, but it probably will add another 100 pounds + to your tongue weight. The rack weighs approximately 50 pounds (accordoing to the website). Bikes weight (at least) 30 pounds each, more if they are a box store bike (35-40 pounds).

Bottom line is all that weight is put pretty much on the tongue. So, if you are tongue weight challenged, you may want to consider a roof rack on your vehicle instead.

Looks nice, similar to the arvika rack I have seen on the forums.

If you can't accommodate the tongue weight, then you can't accommodate the weight of the bikes on a roof rack either. It all still counts against the tow vehicles cargo carrying capacity.

You can be tongue weight challenged and not payload challenged on your TV....

I wonder how stable it is. It has to be better than putting the bikes on the back.

I don't particularly like the hanging bike carriers.
The Trailer Tray made by the same company is more versatile and you could attach a couple of Car Top type bike racks to it. Or when not hauling bikes, use it for hauling other things.

I can't remember the name either, but I don't remember it being tall enough to clear the propane tanks.

Here is the thread but I still stick with the TV stand and BluRay player bracket.
