Kuat NV

I got my Kuat NV today. It took a while to figure out the directions but, after about an hour I was able to declare victory. The NV was relatively easy to get into the 1.25 hitch receiver (note this would not be as easy for a lady), hitch pin and lock fit well and the anti rattle device snugged the rack up very tight to the hitch. The NV was a perfect fit my 2007 Mercury Milan and looks great.

FYI - The NV was more than I wanted to spend ($450 plus tax compared to $550 MSRP) but, I really think this is an investment that I will have for years.

I googled it. Nice looking rack. My frustration is that roof racks and such don't transfer well from car to car.
That looks like it should be just fine. You must add the cost of the trailer hitch to the cost of the bike rack to have the actual cost of the system... but that sounds boring.

Planemaker,
I too have a NV. purchased it a year or so ago. It fits on my fiat 500c, smart four two, audi TT roadster and with an 1.25 to 2 adapter on my motorhome. during the past year the rack has hauled two of our bikes from the Key West to Prince Edward Island, Canada and all places in-between. I really like the design and quality of the rack. The key alike lock and hitch pin are a nice touch. On local hauls I do leave the built in work stand at home. But, when traveling with the motorhome it is very useful. Here it is on the back on my Fiat:
