I want to post a picture of the bike rack we have on our 240D, but I have to find it in our Picture folder - I took it off for a recent trip to Dallas and haven't put it back on yet
We have a 3 bike rack that attaches to a ball hitch. It allows full use of the trunk, and has been well-loved by the family, including on long camping trips....

We needed capacity for four bikes, but the only 4 bike trailer mounts I found required a square receiver, and we only have the standard w123 ball mount.

The solution was the 3-bike rack and a safari basket on top to hold our daughter's bike so we can travel with all four bikes we have.

The rack was about $100 from Ama$on
