Hitch rack questions
I'm looking to get a hitch and rack for my 2008 Hyundai Sonata. Could I get some input please?
I want to get a "tray" type for two bikes. I've looked at the XPort from Performance and I've seen a Sport Rack that appears to be identical. Are they the same rack just sold with different labels? I watched a web video for the Sport Rack and it says that it needs a class 2, 1 1/4 hitch. I can't find any info on the XPort. Is it the same class 2 requirement? If a Class 1 holds 200 lbs. and the rack and bikes will be less than 120 lbs., why is a Class 2 required?
Finally, if anyone is using either of these racks I'd love to hear your positives and negatives.
