Lighterweight and Easy to Load/Unload Bike Rack for 2019 Cadillac Escalade ESV  


We have a 2019 Cadillac Escalade ESV and would like to get a 4 or 5 Bike Rack. Important features are for it to be as lightweight and easy to use as possible I would like to be able to install/use it without my husbands help. We need to carry 2 adult and 2 kids bikes, I think I would prefer something where I do not need to get extra adapters to accommodate women/kids bikes as I see noted on a few of the models I was looking at. Bottom line is we would like ease of use and easy to install. Thanks so much! Was looking at these but open to other suggestions: - Swagman XP - Folding 5 Bike Rack for 2inch Trailer Hitches -Thule Hitching Post Pro - Folding Tilting 4 Bike Rack w Anti-Sway -Swagman Original 4 Bike Towing Rack for 2inch Trailer Hitches - Tilting

It's hard to come up with a rack that covers everything you want perfectly but for a bike rack that is very easy to load and unload and doesn't require a bike frame adapter you'd want a platform bike rack like the Saris Freedom part # SA4414B but the drawback here is they are typically a little heavier which this one is the lightest option we have in this style at 53 lbs. If you can get past the weight this would be option that would make you the happiest.

The Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR is lighter at around 35 lbs but will be harder to load and will require the bike frame adapter bars like # UB01 for carrying women's or kids bikes.
