Does anyone have any ideas on a trunk for my radrover 6+ step through? Bought small basket seems a little too small and large basket won?t work with my pannier bags from rad.

I wouldn't even consider trying to mount something as large and heavy as an ebike to a trunk rack.  Get a real hitch rack that uses a 2" receiver and have the receiver professionally welded to the vehicle frame if it's not factory installed and load-rated.  (Many smaller vehicles are simply unable to accommodate these; believe it if that's what you're told.)

The dynamic loads of 70-100 lbs bouncing around on the back of a vehicle are no joke and yes, if you guess wrong and something snaps/falls off, it is very likely to cause a serious accident for the unfortunate driver behind you.  One pothole or speed bump is all it would take.......

Seems like some confusion between baskets and carry hitch's. Please educate me,

I removed my post. I misread the post. In my mind I thought they were asking about a Trunk Rack to haul their bike but they are actually looking for a Trunk bag for the back of their bike.

I bought the Ibera ‎IB-RA5 Bike Rack and Ibera ‎Ib-ba11 Bike Trunk Bag for Radrover 5. I have been very happy with both. Been using them since late 2020 with no issues. The rack also fit my 2022 Trek Dual Sport 3 bike.
