Swing away bike racks


Does anyone have a hitch-mounted bike rack that swings to the side? Particularly for a short low-roof Transit?

Key thing: with say the Yakima FullSwing
Do the rear doors swing clear of the lower hitch mount portion?

Not on a Transit, but a friend has one on her Sprinter and it's great. I believe it is an off-brand that she found for $250 with free shipping online. It is REALLY sturdy and well designed. It works great to swing the bike rack out of the way so you can open the rear doors. I don't know the exact rise of the pivot from the hitch receiver, but I'll guess 8". Sprinter doors clear, I don't know the height of the Transit receiver vs bottom of door.
