Rack for 2 Trikes

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I am looking for a rack to haul 2 trikes. Either a manufactured one or shop made. If you could send some ideas and or post pictures that would be appreciated. My last resort would be an enclosed or open trailer.

Thanks in advance!

Dave.

Try Alpaca Hitch Racks
edited to show my Alpaca rack holding one bike, you'd need $80 attachment to hold second bike in same way. They'd both be turned out from the van in that case. The trikes length requires vertical mounting rather then Horizontal.

Here's One. I use their single-trike rack, and am quite happy with it.

Double Trike Rack

Thanks for all the replies to my question about a rack for two trikes!

I am leaning towards the rack in the link below from Hitch Rider but have a few questions.

Has anyone used this rack?
Are you happy with the rack?
Are they stable and safe?
Any other considerations or racks that you use or would recommend?

Here is the link to the Hitch Rider Rack……https://www.hitchrider.com/2-trike-rack.htm
