We just signed the papers last night for our first TT, an '04 Outback 26RS. Our whole family is so excited! I got a little scared, though, when I read the stories of bike racks and bent bumpers, etc. Our dealer convinced us that an aluminum 2 piece ladder-style that attaches to the frame will work fine. It holds up to four bikes, which we will definitely need. What do you people out there think about this? We haven't picked the trailer up yet, as they are storing it until we are ready. Another question...we were talked into a 7 yr extended warranty that cost us $1,500. Any comments on that? We are such greenhorns!!!
