    Nice. The US can really use a mid sized fun hauler. Something between a minivan and a full sized van with an efficient 6 cylinder or diesel. Something geared more towards camping and playing. The Eurovan was the last one I can think of.

    they also make whats called a hi-ace, and its probably the nicest van i have ever seen. they seat 15 or 16, and the older models had super quiet turbo diesels in them...

    Thanks. She certainly does the job of hauling 9 bikes with a full load of gear and people pretty well. Not to mention it can take the bikes up just about anywhere.

    Damn I do love the Hi Ace....since we can't buy one here we had to settle for our adventuremobile, 1994 Provan Tiger XL...built onto a Chevy Astro AWD:

    Not, it hasn't backup alarm but it would be OK because Thule Lightboard 976 has not white light indicating reverse gear is engaged.

    The sign with red and white diagonal stripes is required in Spain for backpac racks, also lightboard is required when bikes obscure your vehicle's lights or license plate.

    I'm surprised they allow that their, because it blocks your vision, especially when you backup.

    So it's just a Spanish requirement or are other EU countries also affected?

    i think youll find that even in every state of the USA, the laws will be similar in regards to having rear signals and license plate "clearly visible".. youll just find the laws arent often enforced on the lighting portion..

    I do know people who have gotten tickets for obstructed tags, but they were all people who had those trunk mounted bike racks with the rack resting on the rear plate (like on cars with the license plate on the trunk lid) and no bike on the back (just too lazy to remove the bike rack when theyre done biking)

    Lightboard is requiered in the whole EU when bikes obscure vehicle's lights or license plate (at least in mainland UE, i'm not sure if in UK is required)
    The sign with red and white diagonal stripes is another question. Each EU has its own legislation. It's required at least in Spain and Italy. In France (and i think in Portugal too) is requires only if bike rack exceeds the back of more than one meter. In the rest of the UE countries I don't know.

    75 bucks minus shipping, to hold 5 bikes on a 42 inch tailgate vs a rack that cost 200 bucks, kills ur mpg (roof racks), decreases ur clearance (hitch racks) which all cost about 200 bucks and carry 2 to 4 bikes...hmmmmmm dont see the expensive logic

    plus u cna use a blanket instead lol

    I would rather have to remove my wheel than have my wheel and 4 other buddies wheels hanging over the tailgate collecting all the road dirt and mud, snow, salt depending on where you drive. Hope you don't get rear ended. $75 for a tailgate blanket or $75 for 5 fork mounts...to each his own I guess.

    i can understand that but thats a risk im willing to take, if i get rear ended hard enuf then my bikes are leas of my worries, other than that i usually have a tow hook or a ball mount on my hitch so that scares idiots away a little

    I use the tailgate method when I have the top off my Bronco and take the front wheel off when the top is on. I didn't buy a Dakine pad though. I just use a couple old towels I keep in the truck.

    Now here's a thread I can get into!

    Bike fits just perfectly in here with the front wheel off. Rear tire tucks up against the front seats, and the handlebar just about touches the rear hatch window. Works good enough for me, and I know everything is safe inside.

    I'd rather have a car that doesn't attract the local PoPo, is easy on gas (30 mpg!) but is still fun to drive and reliable... and retain the stock beauty. I love the design of this car, as well as the stock BMW3 class cars. Nice lines.

    Our old family wagon loaded for Sedona (was recently replaced by a new Denali)



    My M3 (only had my bike in the back of this a few times)



    The only decent picture of my A4 Avant that I sold a few months ago. I still regret getting rid of it..



    No pictures yet of my truck which replaced my Audi. I should have sold my M3 instead of my wagon.

    That turbo sportage is a nice little vehicle. They didn't have the turbos out when I bought my 2011 sportage or I would have gone with that one for sure. Does it hurt your gas mileage bad with that roof mount setup?

    I do like the turbo motor, it really does well up the mountains and still gets good mpg. Without bikes I am getting about 28-30 mpg highway and 24-25 mpg city/mixed.

    I put the roof rack on right away so can't say for sure how it affected mpg. They are enough of a pain to remove and install that they won't ever be removed. I think getting the aero wing load bars made a difference, the rack on my old Volvo with square load bars made so much more noise and put a noticeable dent in my fuel economy using the same bicycle trays.

    Mines ride in a 1995 pathfinder xe on the inside with a delta fork mount on a scrap piece of 2x4 bolted to the back seat reat drop the seats down and good to go actually is in there all the time after a ride she gets cleaned up and back to the truck she goes always available for a ride need to do something about the carpet because that usually gets a cleaning after the ride too from the mud that gets on it.

    Haha, hey guys just picked this up this summer. It is a 1991 dodge colt, imported by mitsubishi. I have to say I have never seen one until I found this little beauty. Bought it for 1500 with 122,000 miles, has AWD and has seven seat belt (i dont say "seats seven" because it would suck). 2.0L basically GUTLESS but it get about 24-25mpg has alot of ground clearence and from what I hear they are beasts in the snow. I can fit 3 bikes inside. I would however like to get a gutter roof rack. Any way here she is tell me what you think!

    I like it. She ain't real pretty but she gets the job done efficiently. It's hard to beat a minivan for space and fuel effiency. Low floor, high roof, etc. Throw in some AWD and that'll get you down all but the worst roads.

    Current Jeep (I tend to go through them...this is #4) buy, build, abuse, sell, repeat...

    I have a Yakima crossbar inside with a fork mount on it. The 29er fits with the front wheel and seatpost removed, facing backwards, with the rear seat folded down.

    OH, and this Jeep is Right Hand Drive It was built for Export to Australia/England/the postal service. I get crazy doubletakes all the time

    Our '05 A4 was getting on in years/miles, plus it didn't have a lot of rear room for the baby seat. Just got one of these as the family hauler, and of course it has a tow package which is meaningless (it'll never tow) expect for the receiver so I can haul MTBs. Now I gotta find a decent rack....

    ^ Thanks man. There is a lot of hours in garage and $$$ spent into it. I'm still NOT done with what I really want to do but I decided to quit pouring money into it. Time to give it a rest. . .

    I think you were referencing my set-up? I love this rack so far. The bikes are held very secure and I've noticed no bouncing. The only time a bike rear wheel has moved is when I hit an abnormally large speed bump that was tall and really wide at about 15mph which dang near made the truck tires leave the ground. The bike was still nice and secure and the rear wheel moved about 3 inches. The racks come with a little strap to secure the front wheel to the racks but they aren't really needed. I added some blue straps to the rack that significantly added to the rigidity of the system. I felt comfortable enough to throw a tandem in there with satisfactory results.

    I was not referring to you. I was referring to this monte Carlo with like 20" between his cross bars. Looks sketchy.
