Direct from Hostel Shoppe comes this news about the Davert trike rack for those of you who still own a car and wish to take your trike along with you somewhere:
Davert – Trike Rack
The Davert Rack is temporarily unavailable due to quality control issues. For a good alternative for tadpole trikes, please refer to the Alpaca Double Tadpole rack and the Draftmaster Trike Racks.
Transport your trike easily and safely with our best selling trike rack. Davert has developed versions of the 3 Wheel Carrier to transport 30″ to 50″ wheelbase tadpole trikes and 40″ to 70″ wheelbase delta trikes. Designed to keep the rack from bottoming out when driving through all but the most extreme dips in the road surface. We haven’t found a situation where the rack bottoms out on the back of our Saab and we’ve checked out some serious dips. (In the road – that is.)
Easy to assemble and install.
Bright color for excellent visibility.
Adjustable for weight balance.
Reversible for your convenience.
All three wheel cradles are independently adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of wheel bases and wheel tracks.
Each wheel is locked down securely with safety retainers.
Additional hidden safety features have been incorporated into the design of the adjustable wheel cradles. In the event that the locking bolts are not properly secured, the wheel cradles will remain in the assembly.
The hitch assembly is available for 1 1/4″ and 2″ receiver adaptors.
Payload capacity of all Davert racks is 65 lbs. All new Davert racks with model #’s TC001 and TC002 will work with both class 1 and 2 receiver hitches, however the Davert carriers are designed and tested for a Class 2 hitch and it is the responsibility of the consumer to confim that the gross weight of the rack plus trike will work with their Class 1 hitch before installation (check your specific vehicle hitch manual or with your auto dealer). The TC004 is only designed to accept the Class 2 hitch and does not have any provisions to accept the Class 1 hitch. Davert does not recommend using the carrier with the Class 1 hitch due to the various Class 1 vehicle manufactures tongue weight requirements and indivuals loads and can only guarantee the Class 2.
