I'm looking for a tray type, 2 bike rack for a 2" hitch receiver.  Thinking about the Kaut NV 2.0 with the bike work stand.  But they are not inexpensive.  What others are out there that make sense?

I love my 1UP and have yet to meet someone who has one that would not recommend it. Simple, easy to use and robust.

1+ for 1up. Fastest rack to use and no contact with your bike

DerfeJ_MI I saw one of the 1UP racks at the Funks Bottom last weekend. I am in the market for one also and must say it was pretty sweet looking. Probably buying one at my end but I have to get the hitch on my new car first.

There's lot of good ones and they will all cost you some money. Kuats are rock solid and look nice. Saris is great. Thules are great. 1up is great and the original creator of that has a new model that looks incredible - it's called Quik Rack Mach 2. Rocky Mounts are great. Yakima is great. There's lot of great options and they are all priced accordingly.

My new (to me) car has a 2" receiver so I bought the recently updated Dr. Tray. Fat bike compatibility, the longer cable lock and how easy it is to raise and lower to get the hatch open were things I liked. The main reason I bought that instead of another is because they give IMBA members 40% off. My 1 1/4" Yakima Hold Up still looks and works great after year-round midwestern use with zero maintenance, so another Yakima at a discounted price made sense to me. If I was paying retail, I don't think I would have chosen it because the end price for the 3 bike setup is absolutely ridiculous.
