We also have the rear cap and think it looks better then the flat backend of the Columbus.

Too bad they can't have both, rear cap and rack. Just extend the frame w cap and put the rack on. Beauty and practicality.

The rear cap looks great!

Other than appearance... are there other advantages vs. the standard flat wall?

X2 I'd really have a tough time deciding between the rack and the cap.

We are getting the one with the rear fibreglass cap. Once I saw a picture of it I had to have it! Definitely better than the bike rack if I had to choose (which I did).

We ordered ours with the Fiberglass Rear Cap and we love it. We had never seen one before but the factory rep sent a picture to the dealer to show us. It makes it a different looking trailer for sure.

Actually I found it so I'll attach it here:

I really liked the bike rack when I first saw it, had to have it... but when we went to order we saw "Fiberglass End Cap" on the options list. Once they showed us a picture it didn't take to long for us to decide...

I am thinking that I can add some kind of aftermarket rack later, possibly a receiver-type slidein that I can easily remove.

Plus the more I thought about the Columbus bike rack it brought back my Navy Days aboard ship... we often camp near the ocean and I started thinking about my days of chipping rust, sanding and painting and decided that we didn't need that much exposed metal back there, so the end cap made great sense.
