Well not really, thats R600 per bike,

 

But thule's top racks will set you back R1200/1500 each! and not sure if 4/5 can fit on a trailer, + you need the roof racks if the trailer doesn't come with them so in comparison it's quite good.

 

Maybe post a pic of how it attaches?

I got a quote from Strides in December for a five bike rack. Rack R4387, stronger gas shock R550 and fitting R350. 10% discount for cash/EFT.

Our school trailer has this one, it works well too.

I opted for the Holdfast setup. 2 Top Runners mounted on the roof-rack which in turn is fitted to the trailer with their Gutter Extrusions kit. Works like a charm especially since you don't have take off the wheels on each bicycle. You realise the value of this after a long tiring ride with beer goggles setting in from some cold ones at the finish.

 

I carry 4 full size mountain bikes without a problem and the whole jobby can be removed in minutes from the trailer. I got the entire setup from Cyclehouse in Pretoria. Speak to Anton he'll give you a good deal.

Buy Holdfast clamps and build it yourself or ask a mate thats good with welding to make you one.

you will easily do it for a third of the price

Strides are the best, but the guy is really tough to get hold of. Don't know how he runs the business...

 

I need to update this post. I got hold of Mark at Strides, who moved heaven & earth to get me the 4 bike rack that you see above. It is an excellent and clever product that is without doubt better than any fancy Thule. Doesn't damage the frame, no rub and fits every size bike with every hub array that's out there.

 

Even if the price wasn't as good, it's still the best you can buy.

Thule works well and you can get 4 bikes on easily .The advantage is that the bike racks can be used on the roof and other rear mounted bike racks using other adapters

Got the Strides 5 bike for my trailer and it works like a dream.

Traveled to East London from Joberg and not a issue.
