Puts that 1up rack about 2 feet from the rear doors. I'd imagine Kuat, Thule and Yakima would sit a little farther out

Looks good, thanks for posting.

There are two additional receivers. One with your bike rack and another lower one that is rated for towing. It looks like it would be difficult to tow and use the upper receiver to carry something at the same time without at least an extension. It would really depend on what is on the upper receiver and trailer tongue clearance. Is this the case?

Yep. I'd have no issue towing a little cargo trailer with the bike rack attached, but it would really depend on what your towing.

Do these swing out the other direction by chance? When in camp it would be nice to swing the bikes over to the drivers side, just so you don't have to walk around them to get into the back of the van.

No affiliation other than I own a RackAttach.

The RackAttach can be ordered to swing on either side. I ordered mine to swing on the drivers side so it would swing behind the spare tire and be out of my way for accessing the Aluminess box on the passenger's side and/or the door behind it into the back of the van.

The RackAttach I have is rated for 350#, what is the Hitchswing rated for?

Pricing seems comparable.

Can you provide any online link to the RackAttach? I'd like to compare to the hitchswing, but my online searching can't find RackAttach.

Thanks!

It's Rak Attach. I've got one on order right now and will do a review thread once I put it through the paces. So far, very impressed with the customer service and willingness to custom fab components to fit an Aluminess bumper with tire/box. I've gotten periodic updates during each stage of the build process. You just don't see that kind of feedback these days.
