I typed "Bicycle" in the Search window (above), so many options, what about the Westfield? :(

I had a Thule bike rack for my Gen3 Jimny

www.halfords.com/cycling/bike-racks/towb...bike-towball-carrier

I used PF Jones towbar specialist to fit a removable towbar, I went for a removable one for two reasons, firstly when not in use you don't knock your knees/shins putting stuff in the back of the car. Secondly if your going to use it for off roading you don't want to be ploughing the fields with it.
PFjones will come to your house our place of work to fit it

just checked on weight of bikes it carries 15 kg per bike
one of my bikes is electric and weighs around 22 kg so will have to shop around for rack

was the aprox price of a mobile fitter to fit the rack and cost

I also have similar to Foxtrot.
Have PF Jones supplied towbar and electric kit on my GEN3, but I fitted it myself.
I use a Thule 972 HangOn 3 Bike Cycle rack which can handle 3 15kg bikes or two 22.5 kg electric bikes. I also have two ebikes and it's ok with these.
In a fitter previous life it took 3 normal bikes around France, no issues. Thule's a good make.
Tow bar is Witter with removable swan neck on Jimny.

It was 6 years ago when I had it fitted.
