Trunk mounted systems are designed to be the simplest way to carry bikes. With a few straps and hooks you can easily mount a rack on your trunk. This system will work for sedans, hatchbacks, SUVs, CUVs, and wagons. There is even a model that attaches to a spare tire.

When not in use the rack can easily be removed for storage.

 
Truck Mounted

If your truck has a cap then you can attach a roof mounted system, the same as if you owned an SUV.

If you truck does not have a cap then you can carry bikes in the pan. To carry cargo boxes, canoes, kayaks, etc. then the outdoorsman 300 is the way to go (see picture).
