ron,
I don't know if you can zoom in on what I'm showing here but, you asked for a picture of bikes on the back of a CRV. Well, The rack we're using on the back of the, "then" toad, is called an "X-Sport" two bike rack. They have a four bike one too. It's not the most sturdy bike rack but, it's made it all over the western U.S. on the back of that CRV carrying two Townie 7-Speed bikes. So far, it's been outstanding. And, it's the kind that has cradles that support the wheels and tires. I personally will never have another one that carries them by the frame.

It's just a personal thing with me. I don't care for those types.
Scott

Problem Solved:

I did what Ctpres had suggested and had a 2" receiver tube welded to the top of the drop down receiver. This way it eliminates the need for the duel 2" adapter coming off the drop down reciever. I am able to use my hitch mounted bike rack rather then purchase a trunk rack or any other system to accommodate the problem.

Thanks so much for everybody's input on this. It is very much appreciated.

Happy Travels
Stu

Thank you Scott for the picture of the bike rack on the CRV. My CRV is first generation with the spare on the door and I was looking for a rack that will work in that configuration.

Ron, no pic, but I was able to track down the rack we use. Spare tire clearance works out fine. Bugger to get set up the first time, but after that you're good to go. Bikes on or off in just a couple of minutes.

Bonus going this route is the toad can be used to transport the bikes, not just when a toad, but also when it's a car...

Wow,
That rack is the exact same rack as we have only ours is known as the "X-Sport" Rack. Man it's amazing how some companies copy others and I guess get away with it.
