Bike hitch/Roof Mount/Truck mount

I will be driving like 60 miles at 70-80 MPH to go meet my brother to ride at least 2x a week. I would like to know which would be best to put on Camry. A roof rack, hitch, or the trunk mount? The cheapest is the trunk mount, but at my LBS they said the hitch is best from me. I would have to pay around 350 to u-haul just to get a hitch installed, then an extra 200 for 2 bike hitch. Is it really the best out of the three, or is the trunk just as sturdy and safe for my new carbon bike?

Lots of users swear by the SARIS Bones ($139 for 3 bike version), most of the posters having used them at highway speeds.

Thanks. I ended up calling Yakima today and they told me the roof rack holds the bike more stable. The things is, since I do highyway driving, my car always ends up with a lot of bugs, so could imagine how my bike would end up. Will ask my LBS if they carry the SARIS. My LBS sold me the Yakima Double Down, but gonna return it. Still waiting on my new bike, should be in today, a cannondale six carbon six, and my brother got the CAAD 9 aluminum.
