We are amazed by our Totem Pole Bike Rack. It is so easy to use and has made it possible for our family of 6 to vacation in just one vehicle! Thule on top and Totem Bike Rack on the back -- LOVE it! We also got the stand for storing the bikes and that has made a huge difference in our garage as well. Gets easier and easier to use every time and as we get more comfortable - it's a snap! Thank you!
