From the forum many of you have TOAD (sorry if this is in reference to more than a car/SUV) and some have bicycles/scooter/motorcyles that you carry/trailer behind the PC.

While looking for lighter options for transportation with my PC and how to move that option, I wondered if a new/newer poll might be helpful.

Thank you for your comments,

John

We have both a TOAD and bicycles, however, our bike rack usually rides on the TOAD. We did get the larger hitch receiver installed on the Subaru and bought the matching bike rack (had the option for either size hitch) so we can move the bike rack to the Phoenix and leave the car. If you have a smaller hitch on your bike rack, it can still move to the Phoenix if you buy an adapter but I've read it rattles more. We use the "quiet hitch" type things on both the tow bar for the car and the bike rack. It seriously reduces the wobbling at the hitch receiver.

When we bring the tow & bikes together, our bikes go on the back of the tow vehicle.  It is nice to have it this way for us because most often we need to drive to a point for the day, then "bike" from there.

An unrealated comment.  Look closely at our setup in the picture below.  Note the tow bar is not horizontal.  This picture was taken before I fixed the tow-vehicle-bucking I discussed HERE.  If you have a comment or question on tow-vehicle-bucking, please do so in that discussion, not here so we don't veer off this subject matter.  It just seemed right to point it out since this is a good picture of the bad condition.
