    Thule 963
    Anyone use this rack? Any experiences with it good or bad?

    I need a way to haul the bikes in the RV while towing a trailer. Putting the bikes in/on the trailer isnt an option. Other suggestions besides the thule rack are welcome.
    Thanks for the help

    Its a good rack.

    The rack locks to the spare and folds flat so you can leave it on the car. Its also adjustable for non centred spare wheels.
    A friend of mine has one on his Honda CRV and has used it regularly for 2 years. In fact it hasnt been taken off the car during that time.

    this is the best spare tire bike rack that we have ever used. it's sturdy and easy to use.
    it accomodates offset spare tires, so that you can keep the rack on center.
    it's got great cradles and the bike arms fold flat when you're not using.

    yakima is coming out with one next year, which i saw this past week at the SEMA show, but i still think that the thule 963 spare me is the best....
    you can get an awesome deal on it here....regularly $169.95...on sale for mtbr forum members for $139.95 with code "singletrack" at checkout.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I tried the rack but the spare tire mount for the rack doesn't fit the bolt sizes and patters of the spare tire on the RV. I guess my search continues....
