I found this handy bike rack on amazon. I'm not sure if they make a simular product for 4 bikes.
the nice thing is that it will fold up and store in a nylon bag.

Huh ?? Which is it ?? Usually, a Class II hitch is rated at 3500 lbs. with a 350 lb. tongue weight.

There should be a sticker on the hitch with maximum weights.....you may have to crawl under the vehicle to view the sticker.

I saw that Heininger bike rack on the CW website (much more $ there) and i thought it looked like a good idea. The only worry is its sturdiness - it doesn't appear to be too heavy of a gauge of steel. I might try it for two of the kid's bikes.
