    Anyone have a Sportworks T2 type carrier on a Non-SUV?

    I have a sport wagon and would like to get the Sportworks T2 or Saris Cycle-On. Both come in 1.25" versions. Any issues with clearance or anything else I should be aware of? Thanks for your help/suggestions.

    Depends on hitch / car combination.

    I have a Legacy with an aftermarket Draw-Tite hitch. The hitch is so far recessed that my Mod-series 'L' bracket clears the rear bumper by millimeters. The fit of my Hollywood Team Rider on this same vehicle wasn't nearly as critical.

    If there is a conflict, your local hitch installer may be able to correct it with an extension, or I believe you can purchase extension pieces from Sportworks.

    thanks, that's exactly the combo I have ('05 Legacy Wagon and Draw-tite <--still need to install)
    Is Thule/Sportworks making a 3rd add on (without the fourth), or would that put me over the weight limit for a class II receiver? (for 3 trail type bikes) Just curious if anybody knows the answer, I can always gove them a call.

    I recall them permitting the add-ons only with the 2" models, but you'd better check with them to be certain. Not sure if "them" is Sportworks or Thule.

    Thanks again Speedub.Nate, I'll check with them.
    In the meantime (for future info), I checked out the Saris Cycle-On. According to their website, there's an optional single third try add on that is compatible with the 1.25 Cycle-On version (Model 4015). I am going to try and get written confirmation from them. It also says the 2 bike add is compatible, but I would certainly think this would be pushing it.
