The VW ones look nice but most mountain bikers seem to use Fiamma

I don't think there's any particular reason - just that theyre cheaper!

You can secure the bike if you double loop thru the frame and wheels though I don't know what an insurance firm will think if the bike is stolen from the rack. I personally secure them to the wheel when I'm staying over night

I reckon you won't go wrong with Fiamma

^^ what Lateo said

they are a pain in the butt to take on & off at the best of times: if you need to leave overnight - lock to someting solid T:

Spoilers have been cut (!) to enable rack fitting, alternatively - a tow bar mounted one is the way to go (not sure about door access though with bikes on)

PS - i have a Fiamma 2 bike version

We use the VW bike racks on our Campervans. Pricey, but do the job of carrying 4 bikes really well.
