Yakima Platform Hitch Racks

I had a Yakima Hold-Up. Had a Size L HT MTB I used in it no problem. When I got a FS Size XL MTB I had issues with it fitting properly. It would rock when secured and actually had a few scares driving down the road. I think it was the longer wheelbase of the bike. I want to get a new Yakima platform rack. Looking at the Hold-UP EVO and Dr Tray. Anyone have any issues with Size XL MTBs on these racks? Thanks

Any reason you are stuck on Yakima? Everybody on here is just going to tell you to get a Kuat or 1up USA, I'm a 1up ***** myself.

I have a thule, not hitch mount and my xl bike has no sway. If I went hitch I would like go to north shore racks. Hard to beat and easily fits all sizes.

Ive just always used Yakima products and actually get a pretty good deal on the stuff from my LBS. I know Kuat and 1-Up are the popular brands right now. Also I have a Yakima Skybox roof cargo box which I love and kinda like it all be matchy, matchy when I rollin down the road
