  ok I'll weigh in

If one has a two-door hatchback, which allows little in the way of bar spread, one has to decide whether to:

1. Add a rack extension,

2. Add a hitch extension,


3. get a trailer.

Both 2. and 3. require fitting a hitch receiver.

So in my simplistic flawed logic, in the case I provided it's either a rack extension, or a trailer...presuming you can get a trailer at a good price.

If your hatchback is at all attractive a trailer will "ugly it up" less. Its also much easier to remove, but harder to store.
