Looking for a hit carrier for my bike that’s good but not gonna break the bank. Have access to trailer but want something I can use for quick trips without messing with trailer. Any recommendations?

I use this one. $100. Steel, not aluminum as I wanted the strength more than the weight savings. I have been using it for several months and no issues.

I use this Black Widow carrier. Steel out from the hitch, then bolted to the aluminum rail the bike sits on. I always tighten down the anti rattle yoke, which really keeps things stable. After one year, I am fully confident in this carrier and recommend it. Only con is the on/ off ramp. It is made of flimsy aluminum so it gets a bit bent up. Plus, if the bike goes up/ down less than straight, it can come off the rail. Hasn't yet, but close...

Are either of those easy to use just one person?

One person.

Another con to this type of carrier. It goes on, on the right and off on the left. If parking is tight you need to manage space around you. At the days end I have backed up to make room. No big deal, just a consideration.

Ok great thank you all. Sounds like one of the black widows one will be the route I go.
