Ok, so we like to take bikes on our weekends away, and we tow our beloved caravan. Our son is of an age he likes to have his bike around, and we like to bike with him. .....so presently we take 3 bikes on the roof of our current Insignia estate car on most caravanning weekends. Climbing up to mount bikes on the estate is easy enough But here's the issue, we're considering changing to a volvo xc70, but there's probably more xc60's around in the configuration we want (manual, diesel, 160 or 180bhp, and a particular colour my wife prefers. at a price we can afford), and we're usually in the market for used cars. Although it's easier to get bikes on top of an XC70 as it's just an estate, I wonder if any of our forum friends regularly take bikes on top of an xc60 (or similar sized SUV)- and if so, what do you think ? Is it easy enough mounting the bikes on the XC60's roof?? Am I missing a trick that would make it just as easy and hence bring XC60's into the short-list? How do YOU go about getting bikes on top of your SUV? Advice welcome thanks.
