My MTB has a drastically sloping top tube and my wife's bike is a mixte with double top tubes so I'm not terribly confident on the attachment mechanism for the hitch mount rack. And my Trek is fendered and has had a lot of work done to it - it would be absolutely heartbreaking if it got damaged in any way.

It's about a 5 hour drive one-way. Maybe I'm being paranoid.

I don’t think your paranoid at all. The lady that drove me home today had the hitch clamp, and I was stressing the whole ride home. She had a really nice specialized and said she never had any problems using it but I still stressed.
