    I stumbled across this the other day... does anyone have experience with this? My only concern would be turning radius with the Pup on at the same time. We have a Utah with the front storage box.

    Thanks!

    No experience with the Curt clamp on rack, but I'll share our solution. We haul 5 bikes in between the tow vehicle and camper with no turning problems. Here's a picture and some web links. Depending on number of bikes you are carrying, cost would no more (and possibly less) than the Curt clamp on.

    Here's how we did it:

    and Allen Deluxe bike hitch-mounted carrier

    I would think it would wobble to much for MY liking.
