I have recently purchased a 2007 (57) X-Trail 2.0 Sport (173) and currently tearing my hair out trying to find a suitable means of carrying 2-3 bikes. The car has extreme roof rails and as such I am not too keen to go roof mounted (I have read the posts and viewed the pictures on this forum) as this seems to be a permanent fixture. I also tow a caravan with an Alko stabiliser and have a swan neck (Nissan) towbar. My favoured position is towbar mounted but can't find anything. There are those that attach to the tailgate but the t31 has a plastic body moulding on the bottom making it too broad for the clips on the racks.

Three weeks on Thursday to my summer Hols so ideas would be greatly appreciated.

heres one for an x trail

http://www.micksgarage.co.uk/CarSpec.as ... Trail+(4x4)+07%2f2001+-+06%2f2007

Bike Racks by Car
Item code: 209446

Nissan X-Trail 4x4 07/2001 - 06/2007 3-Bike Rear Door Mounted Bike Carrier - Adventure 620
For transporting 3 cycles, the Adventure 620 cycle rack is mounted onto the tailgate / rear door and therefore does not need any extra equipment. 1 minute installation is all that is required. When not in use - the cycle rack folds and can be neatly stored

I have the silly roof mounted lights on my 58 plate (kids call them rabbit lights, want to go shooting at night). I removed the covers to the roof bar mounts, bought two Halfords roof bars and cut them to fit, drilled 4 clearance holes for the 6mm bolts. Now I just fit standard roof cycle carriers to the bars. Takes about 15 minutes to fit/remove, hardest part is removing the plastic covers. Will add a picture when I get a chance.
