I'm looking for a hitch mount carrier for when it's just me to avoid pulling the trailer and to shorten drive times. We have two different cars with hitches, a Honda Element and an Audi Q7, both with 2" class III hitches. The bike in question is a YZ250X (wet weight 229 lb). I have done some research and would appreciate insights anyone can offer.
The first fork in the decision tree seems to be whether to go with the type that holds the frame, like the Ultimate MX Hauler, or one that supports the wheels, for which I've found a few different models that seem to get pretty decent reviews. I am looking for something I can have high confidence in.
Any input on one type versus the other, on any of the models below, or any suggestions for a different model, would be very much appreciated!
Ultimate MX Hauler ($430)
from eTrailer: smooth Rage Powersport ($448) or ladder Rage Powersport ($224)
Rack N Roll ($450)
