    Hello, first off I tried to search for this topic and couldn’t really find anything, I am new to forums though so I apologize if this has been covered. I recently purchased a Tacoma and I have a Saris bike rack and ball hitch from my Escape I traded in. Both the bike rack and hitch are 1.25” and I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a receiver adapter that doesn’t wobble/sway. There are so many mixed reviews on ones I have researched. Appreciate the help!

    Its been my experience that any single point connection via the primary tow hitch is prone to at least a little wobble... looseness....whether a bike carrier, a cargo box, etc.
    Any time I've carried my bikes using said single point, I've made redundant connection using a strap or heavy bungee to remove potential 'slope or wiggle. I hate things that shake, rattle or wobble.

    Copy all, I think I’ll try the adapter and heavy bungee combo. That’ll be cheaper than buying a new hitch and rack. Thanks for the inputs!
