Seeking a towbar
I am new to this forum, and also quite new to Jaguar having recently acquired a 2018 XF Sportbrake. The load space is brilliant and I have had to make full use of it to carry two hybrid bikes around as my wife and I seek new trails to train for a gruelling charity bike ride across Kenya later this year. BUT: it is really inconvenient to attempt to load and unload two bikes into the boot and I have been looking for an alternative arrangement. I don't want to carry them on the roof as they are a bit heavy to lift and I just bet I'd hit a low branch or bridge! Best option looks to be a towbar carrier, but I have so far failed to find a retro-fit towbar for the Mk2. Do I really need to go to a main dealer for this or is there a good system out there? Alternatively does anyone know of a simple to fit bike carrier that can take two bikes?
I'd really appreciate hearing if anyone has overcome this issue.
