Thanks again, folks. I appreciate all the responses I get when I post here. I am always enlightened and sometimes amused, like, Ice-Breaker, that is not for real, is it?!?

We often travel with two road bikes on a rack on the rear of our scamp 13', using Scamp's factory installed receiver. Bikes plus rack keep us well within Scamp recommended weight limit for the rear mount and we haven't noticed any handling issues with the reduction in hitch weight. Your mountain bikes may however be heavier.

The picture of the car with the multiple kayaks on the roof was not mine, but appears to be real. I have little doubt that they used this method to get as many kayaks as possible to the put-in with as few vehicles as possible. It is likely that they only had to drive a relatively short distance though.

I have a similar setup with the bike rack in front. My dad and brother fabricated a 2" receiver on the front to hold the bike rack, and when I need it for my short trips I can take it off and use it on my truck. Kuat makes an awesome bike rack that only weighs 13lbs, has an integrated lock system, folds completely flat, and fully adjusts so the rack doesn't rattle at all!! I've been so happy with this setup!! You can check out all the photos on my Scamp Facebook page:

Kaitie I have the same Kuat rack was well and love it! Owned a lot of $$$ racks over the years and have to say its the best yet in particular as to how stable it is.

I took a look at your FB page - thats a very cool/interesting way of mounting it!!! hummmmmm

Thank you everyone who took time to give advice - hopefully we will have a better set up this summer.

I use the Kuat two bike rack. It folds up against the spare tire when not in use. It's an awesomely solid rack! Highly recommend it!
