They say current exchange rate is $75 USD per $100 CN.
The frame for the Arvika is $300 CN (~$225 USD). A 2 bike rack to put on it is $300 CN, 3 bike rack is $400 CN and 4 bike rack is $500 CN.
So a 2 bike setup would be $450 USD; 3 bikes would be $525 USD and 4 bikes would be $600 USD.
Arvika: Great product, mediocre instructions, substandard website.
That said, it was about CAD 700 for our 3-bike system. At the current exchange rate of USD 0.76 to CAD 1.00, that'd work out to USD 532... pretty close. Our local RV dealer carries the line so we avoided shipping costs.
More about the product... it's very configurable (we've each changed bikes at least twice since buying it), very well built and very secure, both in terms of keeping stuff in place while traveling and keep stuff where it belongs when parked.
We also purchased a hitch adapter that allows us to remove the rack from the trailer and carry it with the receiver.
If you're a fan of Thule or Yakima you know it's easy to drop several hundred dollars on a racking system. I think this one is well worth the money.
