This is what I got:

It is a class III receiver, if you already have a bike carrier you could use it here. I like that the bikes does not touch any part of my rig and does not block the front storage cover. Also you do not have to remove parts from the bikes.

The number of bikes depends on the carrier capacity, mine could handle up to 3 bikes. It goes over the propane tanks; I took mine off because my TV has a 350 lbs tongue limit, with this set up my TT is at 340 lbs.

interesting, never seen this company before or their rack system.
it's funny that they are in Quebec, just like Arvika, the only other tongue-mounted bike rack system maker.

how much did this cost you?

This option and the screen room was included in my A-Frame package deal. It should be between $200-$300 range.

did you buy this in Canada, cause the company's website only shows distributors in Quebec and Ontario.

Do these A-frame mounted bike racks work when you have a weight distribution hitch like an Equal-i-zer? It looks like the mounts that attach to the A-frame might interfere with the bars that sit on the Equal-i-zer's L-brackets.

I have an Equalizer on mine, and it works fine with the ProRac bike rack.

Good question. I was lucky that my TV and TT does not require WDH. The width of the rack has to be mounted on a certain part of the frame, here is a pic of my TT and the location of the rack.
