Aftermarket hitches are cheaper and install with 4 bolts in about 5 minutes.

Going back to the main question.

Does anyone tried any kind of trunk mounted rack for bicycles.

I don't have hitch also and I don't plan paying a lot

Thanks in advance

"Saris Bones" is what I ended up with. Works fine. Didn't cause any damage. I only carried one bike.

Thanks for your reply
Do you think the spoiler will not be affected when I use it with 2 bikes ?

It will be fine with two bikes. Just make sure the foot is down on the bumper so that the downwardforce is not 100% on the spoiler. The spoiler seems sturdy.

The upper arms of any strap on are for stabilisation only, the weight should be taken by the lower arms. Saris Bones are great.
Once you set it up, make sure to re adjust the straps after a few miles and they have settled.
