Hitch mounted 5 bike carrier?

Looking for a no BS hitch mounted bike rack for 5 adult bikes.

When you dig into the various review you see a lot of racks that don't have sufficient space or require bike disassembly.

Tilt option would be even mo better.

The NSBR carries at the crown of the fork, as opposed to the other which carry the wheel. Leverage at the head tube is less with the NSBR design. They were the first to come out with this type of design and have got it it right. The only thing is there still isn't a provision for a road bike.

the only bummer is that the North Shore sometimes scratches the fork crown.

we have racks similar to the Alta and Recon and everyone likes them better.

I met a guy a while back who had one of these racks by softride. I like the northshore racks and this is similar except it holds the bikes by the handlebars instead of the fork crown. Id rather not have the frame contacting any point of the rack if I can help it.
