    Ball Mount Bike Rack

    Sorry if this has ben asked and answered, I searched but didn't find what I was looking for. I am in the process of converting my Cargo Van (Ford E150) into a camping vehicle and am looking for bike racks. Right now it doesn't have a hitch, but it does have a step bumper with a trailer ball hole. I looked online and it looks like you can get racks that will mount to the hole with a bolt or you can use the trailer ball to mount them. Problem is they have no reviews and are rather sparse on any specs. I was wondering if anyone here used one of these and how they liked them? In particular I am looking for something lockable and sturdy to fit two bikes, but more is OK. Thanks!

    why not just put a hitch on it, they are like $130 and should be an easy bolt on for an E150. That way if you do ever get another vehicle and you buy a nice rack now. You can always swap out the rack to another vehicle. You're very limited with ball mount hitches.

    I have a regular towball on my vehicle and have chosen the NZ-made ezigrip, which has met my needs: http://gripsport.com.au/images/uploa...rrier_test.pdf
