Very common in Sweden. So much so that i have one. I dud take two bikes on it from the UK to Sweden on the back of a caviler in 99.

BUT it is more of a i need to shift the shooping bike bak home after a beery friday night. Or i need to take the bike to the bike shop job.

There is nothing to hold the bikes secure. The bike do move.

I left it in Sweden along with a bolt on Halfords jobby. The thule roof mounted x3 and the tow ball mounted euroway came with me.

I've used one but made by different company. You just need to put some pipe insulation here and there to protect bikes/bus and have a trailor board/number plate too.

I've got one too, again its badged as a different make this one is a maypole. We have had it for 8/9 years and works really well. I was a bit worried about it "just clamping" on the tow ball but it takes my weight without moving at all and feeling really solid. Ours has an extra hole for a padlock which we then loop a chain through and then around the bikes. You just need some bungey straps to hold the bikes and a lighting board and your away.

I have one from a different company but looks identical and sorry to buck the trend but I would spend a few £ more and get a better one even with a bike only worth a couple of hundred I would rather feel it a bit safer on the back.
