    Mini Cooper and 1UP?

    There may be a Mini in my future, and my T2 has seen it's better days and is due for replacement. Hence my question: Does the 1UP play nice with the Mini Cooper? I know Mini's can be a bit tougher to rack up (depending on which model we're talking about)

    Surely some Mini owner has installed a 1UP by now, right? Thanks in advance!

    What model and year?

    I looked into it but haven't pulled the trigger, but a minidomore hitch and 1-1/4 1upusa hitch would be pretty slick

    Most likely a 2010-2012 Hardtop.

    With the low roof line of the Mini, I think that a roof-mounted 1Up tray would be pretty convenient. I have a mid-sized SUV, so roof racks are bit inconvenient compared to a hitch rack on my model.
    Mind your own religion.

    Well, I don't like roof racks (wind noise and mpg penalty) Really looking for the options on hitch racks.

    that's a lot of money.... check out Trailer hitch, hitches and bike rack (800)298-8924 instead.

    1up is perfect because it does not require a hitch pin to secure it to the reciever.
