I really need your help and advice. I just dropped a TON of money for a new ICE Adventure RS, and one detail I overlooked was how in the heck do I tote this thing around in my car?

I don't own a hatchback, I own a Chevy Cruze which has a miniscule sized trunk. Therefore, I need a trunk mounted carrier. A trailer hitch carrier will not work.

Can anyone PLEASE help me with recommendations for a trunk mounted carrier that will work for the ICE Adventure RS?

I love my new bike, but can't transport it to the nearest Metro Park to test out the trails!

The cheapest way out that will work pretty good. They have them at WalMart. Bell 2-Bike Double-Back Rack

Just noticed it is a trike. Forget my suggestion.

I remember seeing a video on the ICE site where they break down a trike to fit in the parcel area of a smart car. Maybe the QR options for the front wheels and main frame tubes would be a thing to consider if you plan to travel with the trike more than a few times. Need to ask why a trailer hitch rack won't work. Isn't a hitch available for the Cruze? That would let you buy racks that store trikes either vertically or horizontally. (are you leasing the cruze? that would be a problem with mounting a hitch.) You can also buy roof rack mounted carriers that will mount a trike.

As Harv noted, this is a folding trike. Can't you just fold it and put it in the trunk?
