My wife wants to buy a bike rack so we can bring our bicycles up to Whistler next time. We only bike casually, so I don't need a top-end rack. Car is a '08 Subuaru Impreza 4-door and we do not have a hitch. I've heard hitch racks are more stable but I really don't want to install a hitch for our purposes. The two trunk racks I'm looking at are these:
Any preference on these two, and do you think it's worth upgrading to the next model or would these be sufficient?
