Hello everyone,

My wife and I ordered our Breezer Uptown 8's yesterday and now are in the market for a trunkmount bike carrier for our 2006 Ford Freestyle. We are looking for a sturdy,well designed model to carry 3 bikes. Im considering the Yakima King Joe and the Hollywood F6 Expedition. We have a 2006 Ford Freestyle. Any advice or recommendations would be welcome.

Thanks from a new member.

I got a Hollywood rack, not sure of the model, and have been real happy with it. Simple, sturdy and affordable. I've carried 2 bikes to Bend from PDX with no problems.

Before you toss all the packing and receipts that came with the rack, make sure your bikes actually will fit on the rack. I have found that some small frames and drop frames don't fit univerally.
That said, my experience with Hollywood has been positive.
