Yeah that could be true with e-bikes—I’ve never had them but understand they can be heavy. Ours are about 30lbs each, maybe a little more with the bag (but the bag has handles). Bulky but by no means heavy.

With a family of four the issues were more about space than anything. I considered getting a retractable tonneau with the rack above it but liked the large enclosed space of the cap better for all sorts of reasons.

Anyway, I love your bike storage/slide—super smart system.

we have qty TWO Turn Vektron s10 folding electric bikes.
folded we keep them inside under the inside table.

since there is no post anymore. we just raise the table . this is also the centre of the AS22FB over the axle. thus its equally balanced and does not put weight on the tongue or the rear

there is an ebike version of the same rack from FIAMMA
Carry-Bike Caravan XL A Pro 200 ebike
SKU 02093 e32A

neither FIAMMA or AS are willing to sell it in USA/CAN
they will if i buy a crate of 12 frames (;

i looked at the delta between the two , and there are just a few beefier pieces.
these are easy to upgrade later.
it is the same rack, just a few different pieces- an easy user home upgrade

the extra weight is with 10% of the max. totally within design margin
i see no issue. i also remove the battery, seat and locks
