Never realised they also existed and they would be easier to use however wouldn't they cover the number plate requiring one to display the number plate on the outside of the bikes on the rear?There are however bike racks that fit on towbars, rather than the "hitch" or towball.
Whilst there is considerably more complication and sometimes no viable solution to some "swan neck" hooks, where the two bolt flange tow hook is used, there are some easily adoptable solutions.
One "Example" plucked at random from the internet. I would expect "pre-loved" racks of this "ilk", could be sourced from the likes of e-bay as flanged towbars are not as widely used today.
Edit: As a onetime user of vehicle rear mounted cycle carrier, when towing be very conscious when reversing the unit, they can reduce the "jack knifing" angle.
We would also require a cable to secure the bikes to the caravan when away and not using the bikes or at night. The site we normally use is very secure, but you never know. Both bikes are extremely expensive as they are used in competitions i.e. marathons.
